Need some new backgrounds for your next video chat? Try these iconic music images

Now that “zoom” is a verb on the level of “Google,” you’re probably engaging in more video chats that you’d probably like. A recurring issue is your background, something that people are being very judge-y about. Witness the rise of Room Rater, a Twitter account that rates the backgrounds seen on TV as people engage in Zoom, Skype, and Facetime appearances.

Staging a real-life background can be difficult. Why not just use one of these music-themed images as a background. Thanks, iconicmusicbackgrounds.com!

This is cool.

This is not.
