What genre of music will the 2010s be remembered for?

One thing that no music lover will never be able to escape is the idea of people claiming that they ‘were born in the wrong generation’. Whether they desire to be living through the synthpop era of the 80s, Bowie’s glam days in the 70s, or the Britpop battles of the 90s, there is always a section of society which just isn’t content with their contemporary kingpins of the music biz.
