Hilarious illustrations perfectly break down every musical genre

Life, as much as we'd like to pretend it isn't, is formulaic. From small talk to action blockbusters, there are certain tropes that crop up repeatedly. Things that we barely even notice but subconsciously have come to expect. Illustrator John Atkinson is a man that is painfully aware of these things.

So aware, in fact, that he's dedicated some serious time in breaking things down to their minuscule components - and we think it's brilliant. Check out John's anatomy of modern music below and check out his excellent blog here.
