The movie “Saturday Night Fever” introduced the world to the Disco culture. A New York teen lived his week for the opportunity to become the king of the disco on Saturday night. The film was based on Nik Cohn’s New York Magazine article, "Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night", from 1977. The movie catapulted the genre into the mainstream and disco-only radio stations popped up across the country.
Disco is not the only music genre that developed a culture. Many music genres have developed cultures, many outliving the short success of the disco days. Opera, gospel and classical cultures have survived the on slot of many developing genres.
Some performers have also created a culture among fans. Elvis Presley and the Beatles have cult followings until this day despites decades without new works.
In some cases the culture may be more tied to an instrument rather than a specific genre. This is true of a culture of pipe organs and those that love the instrument's unique sound.
