Nick Andriola HISP 200 Assignment 5 Nobrow, by John Seabrook “Before MTV, art made for the mass audience and the art made for a cult audience had been mostly detached and distinct from each other. There were local, folk-based enthusiasms f0r teams, bands, or authors, and there were mass audiences.” Pg. 22 What John Seabrook, is saying in his writing, Nobrow, is that culture has changed over the past three generations.

It shed light on every nook and cranny, and corner of the music world, altering the music business forever. In the pre-MTV era, it took years to gain stardom, years of hard work, and struggle threw low fan base, and low marketing, until one day they performed at the right place at the right time. From there they grew bigger and bigger, until they eclipsed there stardom. But in the post-MTV era, a musical “artist” can go from selling mixed tapes/demo CD’s/MP3
