This paper investigates the basic mechanisms of representation of the past in British popular music in the early 2000s. Changes in the music industry associated with the emerging and wide dissemination of new media has affected the search for new musical decisions, reformatting attitudes to the past in general, and to the musical past in particular. In this regard, questions of historical representations in popular music and their relationship with cultural heritage are closely interrelated. This paper analyses the mechanisms and formats of ‘working’ with the past in British popular music of the 2000s using examples from the London rock band, the Libertines. The author draws conclusions about structure of historical representations in popular music and their typology. The use of popular music studies approach is suggested to analyze mechanisms of representation of the past and broaden the concept of popular music.
