Ok, we all know that when cds were being pumped out, there was a large catalog of tracks being exposed on the discs, and some tracks popping up twice or three times between albums. Are there any solid anthems anymore since the cd market has drastically dissolved? It all seems to be "produce track-slap on label-release digital".

If by anthems you mean songs that everyone knows the lyrics to by heart, then yes there are plenty. after 2 nights and a yacht party at HTID In The Sun, the majority of ppl sung the lyrics with no stutter. And some were less than a yr old.

I kind of know what you mean, there do seem to be fewer tracks that take on true anthem status, even though there are still a lot of catchy vocal tunes. The last really big anthem I remember is Come Running. Mind you, CLSM's I Will Wait has become pretty anthemic in the last year.

An anthem that only Brisk, Fracus & Darwin, and CLSM play.

The only people who can write anthems in any traditional sense, at this point, are Styles and Gammer. No-one else can get their material listened to, let alone played by, enough DJs.

On one hand it prevents 8 plays a night, *but* on the other hand it means that a track (no matter how good) can't possibly get that kind of reach particularly if it isn't by someone established. There is literally no way, no how. Combine that with the throwaway nature of digital releases, the massive slowdown of albums, and well...... We won't be seeing another "Heart of Gold" type breakthrough track/anthem for a loooooooong time IMO.

You can, however, get tracks that are "anthems" for a certain setting or with a certain audience.

Also being at HTID in the Sun the most obvious anthem which was played numerous times during the week and got an amazing reaction everytime was 'Re-Con & Demand - Like a Rainbow'.

Can non vocal tracks be counted as anthems? When 'Screwface' comes on that always get a great reaction!

The new Darren Styles track 'Never Forget' is quickly becoming big too.

So there is definitely potential for anthems even if they aren't as prevalent. I do agree with a lot of what CDJay said, only certian artists are going to be capable of making an anthem simply because of the exposure and their reputation.

If they did a Hardcore remix of 'Somebody I used to know' (annoying song of 2012) then I will eat my thongs!
