    Analog cassette tapes are making a comeback in the music industry. A Bloomberg report shows National Audio Co. produced 10 million audio cassette tapes in 2014.

    Many music lovers are hitting the rewind button, turning back to analog cassette tapes, NBC News reported.

    Demand for cassette tapes has surged, according to National Audio Co. The company produced 10 million tapes in 2014, according to a Bloomberg report.

    "We attribute our success, as I say often, to stubbornness and stupidity," said Steve Stepp, the company's president.

    Cassettes were overshadowed by compact discs during the 1990s, and sales dipped to 4 percent of all music sales with the onset of digital music files.
