A musical genre with 80s/90s/early 2000's capitalist pop culture that create the feeling of "Artificial Happiness" that was commonly capitalized in advertisements before 9/11.

Now, people watch Vaporwave as a nostalgic remnant of the past that allows you to truly feel the satire of Post Modernistic art and culture whilst also feeling how that Post Modernistic art is just another by product of consumerism and capitalism.

A music genre that takes songs often from the early 2000s, 90's and 80's and slows them down drastically using a computer program, and looping a certain part. The song may or may not have filters placed on it as well.

Vaporwave is also associated with a certain type of aesthetic often found on Tumblr involving bright colours and nostalgic images from the 90's.

There is also a common use of fucking Greek statue heads. Okay, that's just weird, but hey it works.
Vaporwave is also a genre of music. And believe it or not the music that artists produce under this genre is actually pretty good.
