Researching The Popularity of The Genres Over The 20th Century

To find out the popularity of each genre over the course of the 20th century i had to look at a lot of different sites so that i could get an accurate idea of the popularity of the different genres to represent on the timeline. Using the sites like https://music-timeline.appspot.com/# which had a timeline of its own and other sites that were more text based like http://www.oxfordmusiconline.com/public/page/twentiethcenturytimeline i could get a grasp of how to present the genres in my poster. I found that genres like classical didn’t just start to die out when the other genres were invented, obviously it went down in popularity but it didn’t die out completely. I found with other genres there were massive spoken in popularity a few years after they were invented, especially with Hip Hop and Rock.
