R&P: How would music fare if the world suffered a deadly pandemic?

For instance, a zombie outbreak. ;) Let's say the population was greatly reduced (although we of course wouldn't have any way of knowing by how much for a long, long time). After the remaining survivors built up a new life for themselves, how do you think music would have changed? Do you think teen pop and rap... show more For instance, a zombie outbreak. ;)

Let's say the population was greatly reduced (although we of course wouldn't have any way of knowing by how much for a long, long time). After the remaining survivors built up a new life for themselves, how do you think music would have changed? Do you think teen pop and rap would still be mainstream (here)? Do you think there would be more music that was extremely emotional (considering what the people would have gone through)?

Feel free to let your thoughts wander.

MQ: End-of-the-world, apocalyptic songs?
