'70s revival is a style of sound that emerged in the early 2000s in which bands released songs with sounds inspired by 1970s musical groups and artists such as The Cars' early work released in the late '70s.


The '70s revival origin dates back to at least the early 2000s with tons of 1970s inspired songs. Such songs include Stacy's Mom by Fountains of Wayne, Just the Girl by The Click Five and Roses by the hip hop duo Outkast. "Stacy's Mom" by Fountains of Wayne is noted for copying parts from The Cars' Just What I Needed, especially the opening guitar riff. It is also inspired by New wave. In the music video, a license plate can be seen which reads "I love Ric." "Just the Girl" by The Click 5 is noted for also containing elements of New Wave as well while "Roses" by Outkast can be considered a 1970s disco-inspired song.


The 1970s revival was mostly seen in rock, hip hop and R&B bands which had success on various charts such as the rock charts and even the Top 40 chart The popularity of the '70s revival was mostly seen in the early to mid-2000s although some of it has made its way into the 2010s with bands such as Capital Cities incorporating elements of 1970s music into their work.


Bands that have incorporated elements include:

  • Fountains of Wayne
