Determining the lifecycle of each music genre by The Data Face

Here’s a look at every single song that has reached the Hot 100, stretching back to 1958. Each tiny rectangle denotes a different song. The larger the rectangle, the longer the song stayed on the Hot 100. Click on one of the rectangles to pull up the song in the Spotify player (if it’s on Spotify that is). Use the filters at the right to narrow your search to a particular artist or genre.
