I'm sure some Mercs would love to listen to 80's rock or heavy metal.

Both the Fedsuns (in the 17 worlds of the former United Hindu Collective down along the Taurian border, including Basantapur and Panpour) and the FWL (Regulus at least) have significant Indian subcontinental heritage.  I'm betting that there's a pretty big Sphere-wide neo-Bollywood music and arts scene; can you imagine techno-fusion samples of "Mundian to Bach ke," or "Jai Ho," or "Khalibali" from Padmavaat...absolute BANGERS.

Okay, now I'm actually interested in how big this Interstellar Bollywood would be.  So, taking Hinduism as a proxy for at least some appetite for Indian-subcontinental cultural products, we have:

- 40 worlds in the Lyran Alliance which claim Hinduism as thir "dominant religion," including two worlds with very large sacramental Hindu pilgrimage sites - Chahar and New India
- At least one planet in the Draconis Combine with significant sub-continental ancestry (Hachiman)
- approximately 15 percent of all Free Worlds League planets (!), centered most strongly within Regulus,
- of course, the old UHC worlds in the FedSuns, and
- an unknown number of Capellan worlds.

Yeah, I'd say that Bollywood-style musicals have most definitely not gone out of fashion in the Inner Sphere.

I was going to use Bollywood anyway (Indian casino) in my Hachiman hard boiled. Now I'll have to include a link
