How is this so low? I understand its not going to get the same love as say classic rock, but that being said it still destroys more than half the genres list (and that's being modest). honestly why does no one remember two-tone in the late 80s or at least third wave from the 90s. with bands like streetlight manifesto, MU330, mustard plug, the mighty mighty bosstones, the specials and madness in their arsenal I at least know where my vote is being cast.

I couldn't choose between Jazz and Ska but I ended up here so I guess I made my choice. The Specials, Selector, Bad Manners and Madness. If you want something with a catchy beat and not too much singing, Ska sounds great in the summer. English Ska sounds the best. - Britgirl

Since there's no Ska Punk on this list, I'll vote for ska. If you ever feel down, look for a ska song (any at all) and in a matter of minutes you feel all happy again. Ska may not be the very best genre ever, but it should be way up in the top 10. - standelange

Ska is the best genre ever, it makes me feel good.

86Electronic Dance Music

EDM has concerts that gain national notability! It is the highest climbing genre and mixes with pop and rap artists that score hundreds of thousands of views and positive feedback.

I wouldn't say it's the best; but it deserves to be much higher than this. It encompasses some of the other genres put on this list. - Lasvegasxavier

This is the kind of music that really hypes up the crowd!

87New Age

I HATE this genre. Too quiet and peaceful for my liking! *blasts "The Divine Right of Kings" by Ingested*

This really should be higher. this music has a deeper undeniable connection to the soul and body than almost anything else.

What the hell is wrong with people. new age not in top 10. listen to songs like tichinabet-oliver shanti and new horizons-gandalf and you'll understand the power of new age music.

89K Pop

I like to listen kpop when I want to throw up

Kpop is just the definition of amazing and should be on the 10 top

WHAT?! NO! K-Pop deserves to be in the top 10! Are these people forgetting about Girls' Generation, SHINee, Exo, Big Bang, Super Junior, Infinite, 2NE1, F.T Island, U-KISS and the best of course, BTS! I am an ARMY forever! VOTE FOR K-POP! Someone call the doctor it's an anger overdose

K Pop should be one of the top ten... I mean Girls Gen. , BigBang, Exo, and Shinee and all those groups are pretty popular... Are they not? SNSD FOR LIFE

90Post-Hardcore

Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate, The Used, Upon This Dawning, For All Those Sleeping, Sleeping With Sirens, Pierce The Veil, Secrets, Asking Alexandria, A Skylit Drive, Yashin, Make Me Famous, Her Bright Skies, Palisades, Woe, Is Me, Issues, Ice Nine Kills, That's Outrageous!, Of Mice & Men, Attack Attack!, We Came As Romans, Sent By Ravens, Adept, La Dispute, Hopes Die Last, Eyes Set To Kill, Memphis May Fire, Close To Home, A Day To Remember, Modern Day Escape, Dead Rabbits...

Really post hardcore is this low on the list? It breaks the barrier between pop punk and metal (Most bands) Combining screams with singing. It's a great genre.

One of the most emotionally deep genres I've listened to. There's a lot of analogy usage, letting the music be interpreted in tons of ways. That's one of the main reasons it's my favorite music genre. Ex: Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon, Get Scared, etc.

Post hardcore doesn't deserve to be this high. Hardcore punk (first wave) is amazing. I don't know why this genre is higher then hardcore punk. - Powerfultekin

92Britpop

Blur, Elastica, Oasis, Pulp, Suede, Coldplay, Stone Roses! I love britpop it 's the best; those who don' t agree should definitely listen to this. Blur basically defined british pop music, while other bands still continue to spread their wonderful music all over the country, or in this case, all over the world.

Although I'm an Asian man, but I love this genre. and I'm enjoyed that.

Oasis,blur,pulp,the verve and many more...

The last instance of good mainstream music - RecklessGreed

93Soundtrack

Soundtracks, or so-called "movie trailer music" or "epic music," should definitely rank in the top tens. It has the power of the orchestra and a distinct melody all within the timeframe of a couple minutes. Think of all the movies you have watched and a couple of great soundtracks.

94Symphonic Metal

No way in the world should symphonic metal be so low. Have you ever heard Nightwish? They are my favorite band in the world! Their lyrics are awe-inspiring, and their music is phenomenal. I refuse to believe that symphonic metal is hated this much in the world. Seriously, if you are looking for a genre of music that actually has bands that are talented, and not using computers to modify their music, symphonic metal is perfect! This should be in the number 1 spot. It definitely is in my world. By the way, I've been a symphonic metal and Nightwish fan since I was 6 years old. First heard Storytime, from Nightwish, and was instantly hooked. But I can't believe no one likes this amazing genre of music.

Why the hell is the best genre in the bottom spot? I'm not accepting this impulsive decision!

This is classic and metal together!

95Glam Metal

Glam metal should be way higher not in the top10 but way higher than this

One of my favourite genres, along with New Wave/Synthpop/Synthwave. Music is fun and will make you happy, even if you had a bad day. Also, guitars and especially solos, they are probably the best in the whole Heavy Metal history. And the best thing is, that this genre is still alive and new songs are being released.

It's all about the 80s lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock n roll that Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, Poison, Cinderella, Skid Row and Europe depicted to name a few. The power ballads of this genre is my favourite kind of song too.

96Trance Dubstep

97Deathcore

Ok let me just start by saying that even though death metal shreds a little harder than most deathcore bands, but come on man, it takes the brutality of death metal and the groove that metalcore has to create a "brutal groove" and I can't listen to Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Thy Art Is Murder, Upon A Burning Body, As Blood Runs Black, Despised Icon, or any deathcore band without banging my head because it's literally what gives me the strength to go about my day without complaining about anything. This genre is what made me wanna be a vocalist

Best genre ever made. Just saying

What? Deathcore at 78?
Oh come on people it should be #1
SUICIDE SILENCE ROCKS! They make real music!

98Synthwave

Not many people know this genre and I believe they are missing out. The music is beautiful and creates a warm and nostalgic atmosphere. Bands like Miami Nights 1984, FM Attack and Cougar Synth are a few examples.

99G-Funk

Dr dre, snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, warren g, tupac, above the law, nwa etc. Ithese and loads of other g funk artists are known internationally I don't know why it hasn't got more votes
