This question already has an answer here:
I'm looking for a word that simply means something that used to be popular but is no longer.
I do not want the word to denote that it is not as good as it once was
- Obsolete: no longer in use or no longer useful
Whether or not it is still very important, just that the popular attention has shift away, is up for the context.
The closest thing I could find was:
- It's so yesterday: something that is out of fashion
But that's slang and (for me, at least) gives a small implication that it's not as good as whatever is the new thing now.
Edit: I found:
- Old-School: used, usually approvingly, to refer to someone or something that is old-fashioned or traditional
However, I'm not sure if 'old-school' could be used for some political thought/opinion.
Are there any other single-word adjectives that could describe this?
When I showed my dad a trending music video, he took one look at it and said "My goodness, this is so ______! It's so nice to see this kind of music video again - it really takes me back to my younger days."
I've realized that my example give off a positive connotation, so 'old-school' would be closer than any other word I've found - but I'm looking for a word with a neutral connotation as to why it's no longer popular.
