30 Years Of Music Consumption In A GIF

Tangible or not, it surely can’t be long before MP3 files join the great scrapheap in the sky along with other bygone musical formats of our past.

After all, from vinyl to cassette tapes, to compact discs, to whatever MP3s are made out of - the way we consume music has changed dramatically over the years, shifting between formats in unforgiving (and at times expensive) fashion.

To hammer this home like nothing else, US site Digital Music News has compiled the date of music buying and listening across the past 30 years, sifted it into a pie chart and handily made a neat GIF out of it. So take a look below and prepare to feel very old.

Just think. 30 years from now and hipsters will probably be selling vintage CDs. Sickening.
