My paper focuses on the importance of nostalgia in contemporary Hungarian pop music. Based on the content analysis of the songs of two bands, Wellhello and The Biebers, it argues that late eighties and nineties nostalgia is a mainstream feeling amongst Hungarian youth. After a short description of the media nostalgia phenomenon, I claim that there are three major types of nostalgic content in contemporary Hungarian music industry (folk, socialist and transition period heritage), and the research presents the characteristics of the third. The findings of the research are integrated into the results of recent works on the current trends of media nostalgia.
