Who first coined the phrase old school? What's the definition of old school?
Clarification of Question byjessaminda-ga
It's an ongoing debate with co-workers. We did find the definition on
wikipedia. One co-worker said that the expression originated as a
genre of music which he said would specifically be 70's R&B. If
someone was in their late twenties and hears a song from 1990(when
they were 12), can they refer to it as old school? Even though the
song may be viewed as silly now, but was incredibly popular at the
time, can it be considered "old school"? Basically is the term
relative or set to a certain era. The problem with music quality is
that it's relative to peoples taste. Thanks.
