The current “falling transition” in social mood makes for strong, complex cross-currents of artistic expression throughout society, including on television. Breaking Bad and other lauded shows are similar to what happened in rock music in 1967-1968. Then, a falling transition produced relatively artistic popular music, with complex influences and innovative arrangements. Bright “psychedelic” lights accompanied moody lyrics. Bands epitomizing the style included The Beatles, Big Brother, Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago Transit Authority, Cold Blood, Cream, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Santana.
