As the sun rises and sets, it cannot be helped that the planet earth will change and the years will age. How long have it already been since the earth was made and the human population was born? We witnessed how changes occurred from the time of the cavemen up to this very day. And although the world today is inhabited by the various mix of people, those born of the yesteryears and those born of the highly technological era; such diversity paved way for the rich and colourful customs and traditions, ideas and innovations, fashion and lifestyle - simply put, in whole aspect of human living. However, though how things have changed there is still a part in us that remains unchanged. It has been part of every civilization and have existed even before the first syllable or words were created - that is our love for music. And even though whatever genre we like to listen, still for us it is the same music that gets our feet tapping, body swaying and fingers clicking. And one sure fire proof of our affection to music is through our usage of boom box, but not just any boom box but the old school type.

Boom boxes were introduced during the late 1970s and were named as such because of its capability to produce loud music through its loudspeakers and amplifiers. But such gadget gained much popularity during the 1980s when the arts of break dancing and hip hop emerged in the streets. A boom box technically is composed of at least two loud speakers, an amplifier, radio tuner, a cassette player and sometimes a compact disc player - the latter three components makes the gadget even more adorable. Most of these units are powered through alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) making it portable which is why many people who appreciate the art of music bring it along to the streets to share their passion with everyone. Hence then, the genre of break dancing, rap and other forms of hip hop like pop and lock, clowning, isolation and robotic were born.

But then other smaller and more complex gadgets were innovated such as walkmans, mp3 players, iPods, and cellular phones with built-in music player and took over boom boxes' popularity. But such gadgets could never replace what a boom box could do and many hip hoppers still prefer the loud blaring music for their street battles and performances. That is the very reason why instead of being wiped out, boom boxes prevailed and evolved into much sophisticated ones. They are now capable of playing different formats like mp3, WMA, CD-R and CD-RW. Some have jocks in them that enable you to plug in USB or flash drive and even iPods. They also have LED lights that beat with the music creating that disco fever effect.
