Can someone give me the rundown on what music has become normiecore now? Do actual 12 year olds listen to death grips? Is swans facebook-core? Do all the lamestreem meemers listen to macintosh plus?
Why should you care in the first place? Just listen to whatever you like.
>Do actual 12 year olds listen to death grips?

no, but it's tumblr-core
>Do all the lamestreem meemers listen to macintosh plus?
Anything in the shortened /mu/-core chart is or will soon be normie music, due to /mu/ kids passing to tumblr kids who itself cross to regular normies.
watch out particularly for:
Yo La Tengo
those bands, that were once pitchforkcore, are now attracting crowds of suburban teenage girls who just got out of middle school
Looks like "Saved" made it to #28 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in 1989, and their album To Be Kind got all the way to #37 on the albums chart:

OP here. I don't use music as a fashion accessory, I hardly ever express my music taste because my irl friends aren't interested. I'm only really making this thread because internet culture is confusing and I legitimately can't tell how popular anything is anymore. This is especially since radio feels more and more irrelevant and different online communities of people become more and more mixed, sharing things with each other in a way I can't fully understand. Everything feels more connected and jumbled up at the same time. I use meme words like "normie" because it makes me laugh.
