MUSIC THAT INSPIRES US
Music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s continues to be a source of inspiration for fashion and style today. The fashion and music of these decades were revolutionary, colorful, and bold, and continue to be celebrated and enjoyed by people all over the world. At Jagged Metal, we believe that music and fashion are closely linked, and we are inspired by the iconic styles and sounds of these decades.
The 70s were a time of cultural and musical revolution, and disco was the sound that defined the era. From the Bee Gees to Donna Summer, disco was all about dancing, glitter, and having a good time. But the 70s were also about soulful ballads and smooth jazz, with artists like Stevie Wonder, Al Green, and Marvin Gaye creating some of the most iconic songs of all time.
In the 80s, the music scene continued to evolve, with new wave, synth-pop, and hip hop emerging as dominant genres. Artists like Prince, Madonna, and Michael Jackson were at the forefront of the music industry, and their unique styles and sounds continue to be celebrated today. The 80s were also known for their energetic and upbeat dance music, with artists like Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson creating infectious tracks that are still popular on dance floors around the world.
The 90s saw the rise of grunge and alternative rock, with bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden dominating the airwaves. But the 90s were also the era of dance music, with rave, techno, and house music taking over clubs and dance floors around the world. R&B and hip hop continued to grow in popularity, with artists like TLC, Tupac, and Notorious B.I.G. dominating the charts.
At Jagged Metal, we have curated a selection of our favorite tracks from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, including disco classics, new wave hits, alternative rock anthems, and dancefloor bangers.

The 70s was a decade of cultural transformation that had a significant impact on music and fashion. The era was marked by a desire for glamour and escapism, as people sought refuge from the harsh realities of the time. Music played a significant role in the culture of the 70s, with the rise of soul, funk and disco music gaining popularity worldwide.
The emergence of black music culture in the mainstream was a defining feature of the 70s, with artists such as James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder dominating the music scene. Disco, with its upbeat and danceable rhythms, became a symbol of the era and was closely linked to the fashion of the time. The disco aesthetic was characterized by glitter, glam, and sequins, with people dressing up in flamboyant outfits for a night out on the town.
At Jagged Metal, we take inspiration from the fashion and music of the 70s, curating a collection of vintage jewelry pieces that reflect the era's glamour and style. From bold statement pieces to delicate gold chains, our collection includes pieces that evoke the spirit of the decade while remaining contemporary and versatile. So, whether you're looking for something to add a touch of retro charm to your outfit or a statement piece to complete your look, Jagged Metal has got you covered.
The 80s was an iconic era for music, fashion, and pop culture. As disco faded out, the early and mid-80s brought in a smoother soul and jazz sound. By the mid-80s, the explosion of electronic music, dance, techno, and rave music was driven by digital recording technology. Throughout the early and mid-80s, R&B and hip hop gained more popularity, with rap music becoming a powerful force by the end of the decade. The 80s was also marked by its distinctive fashion trends, from power dressing to punk rock and neon colors.

The 90s was a decade of diversity in music, with dance music exploding into various sub-genres like rave, hardcore, happy house, D&B, and Trip Hop. Hip hop continued to grow and is now regarded as the golden age, fusing with R&B, soul and jazz to create new genres like new jack swing. In addition, northern indie bands such as the Happy Mondays, Stone Rose, and 808 State took inspiration from acid house, funk, and 60s psychedelia to create the Madchester movement and the second summer of love.
