A post-dank meme can refer to dank memes that were created after the initial wave of dankness in 2016. Memes such as the wave of Steamed Hams edits (despite this having been a meme for as long as the episode it's in has existed) that arose during late 2017 and early 2018 which took remixing to a whole new level that was possibly influenced by the Nutshack/We Are Number One days, Drake and Josh stuck in a treehouse, and 'but you're in a bathroom at a party' can be considered post-dank.

The post-dank era possibly emerged in early-mid 2017 in the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election which saw labelled dank memes such as Pepe emerge into the mainstream (which is honestly not good for dank memes) after a year or two of montage parodies slowly becoming attached to the term.

The initial 2016 dank meme wave officially came to a close with the death of Stefan Karl in 2018, whose LazyTown character Robbie Rotten came to have spearheaded the peak of the wave in 2016. He has left a legacy which had a pretty good influence on post-dank memes and with the Nutshack popularized 'but' meme edits in which a certain repeated word/event is replaced with something else which served as the basis for many countless other movie/show songs/themes/scenes to be given the same treatment.
Person 1: You know steamed hams?
Person 2: Yea?
Person 1: I reckon it's not a dank meme but rather a post-dank meme.

Bands/artists who are labeled as rock music, hit the rock charts and are labeled on Wikipedia as rock, but who barely, if not at all, sound like rock. Examples are Imagine Dragons and Twenty-One Pilots.
Billboard's Hot Rock chart of the last decade is chock full of faux-rock.

A third-person shooter game that exploded onto the scene in late 2017. By early 2018, it became extremely popular, toppling 2017's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds from the limelight. It became so popular, overbloated and omnipresent on the internet, that it eventually resulted in a backlash. However, the backlash hasn't been enough to topple it's popularity, and as of the time this was posted, the backlash operates alongside the popularity.

a good band, but there are downsides:

A fanbase that originally consisted of hippies and stoners but is now 13 year old boys who think they are different from the others for listening to different music.

Most of their songs were lifted off of old blues songs, and some of their greatest songs caused lawsuits.

People generally like to shit on them using both excuses, mostly the latter, as they are the only ways they can back it up. We get Jimmy Page didn't give credit for dazed and confused, you're not the guy who originally wrote it, so you have no right to be pissed.

Zeppelin haters and fanboys are extremely pretentious and absolutely hate the other ones opinion. It's weird how the Beatles, a group that ran the fucking music scene in the 60s, don't get the same cries of overrated as much as the Zep. And i don't hate the Beatles so please don't say i was........

Zeppelin fanboys haven't listened to any other kind of music, and Zeppelin haters haven't really listened to Zeppelin.
Your average Led Zeppelin fanboy: I'm 13 and I don't listen to Taylor Swift or Ed Sheehan, I listen to teh zep
Your average Led Zeppelin hater: They stole shit, they stole shit, they stole shit, overrated, they stole shit, they stole shit
