81 Chillstep

Are you serious? 66 for Chillstep? This music is amazing! I can't believe gangsta rap and emo punk garbage is rated higher!

Emo is not garbage, and neither is punk.

82 Contemporary Country
83 Contemporary Christian
84 Electro Rock
85 Electropop
86 Electrorap
87 Traditional Heavy Metal
88 New 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.

89 Post-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

92 Power Pop

You obviously have never listened to original weezer, they are alternative not "power pop"

You've got to be Kidding me right? Bands like Weezer, Jimmy Eat World and so many other great bands.

Those are great alternative ban ds. p ower pop is just one step closer to pop than the already bad genre pop pu nk. b ased on the bands you listed you would say radio-head is power pop.

93 J Pop

Terrible. No originality, no personality.

Who needs a group with 100 underage girls? They would be switched out everyday and ya'll wont care

Cause all of their fans are either young girls who like cutesy stuff pedos, or sugar daddies

This is good stuff. I like cute Japanese girls singing awesome music. Especially BABYMETAL which is Kawaii Metal, but that's a mix between Metal and J-Pop so it qualifies.

94 Shoegaze

Despite I really enjoy this genre at times, it's easy to see why it's low on the list. If you can get past a lot of really boring shoegaze (and there's lots), then you'll find the gold. Opinions on what is good or boring depends on the listener so I won't mention who is what. But once you do find the good shoegaze, good news: it'll be hard to go back. Like the other comment said, this is one of those genres that captures raw emotion, so you'll have to keep an open mind to REALLY enjoy it. I know I have and so this has my vote. At least give it a chance.

Captures music as a raw emotion, not even specified.

Kek this is the most cringe inducing site about anything music, shoegaze at 113 rofl

95 Britpop

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

96 Symphonic 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!

97 Glam 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.

98 Trance Dubstep

EXAMPLE: Principalities - Alex S.

99 Nightcore

Deal with it guys, nightcore is trash and also promotes stealing other peoples music and making money out of it. Should be way lower if you ask me.

If anything, Nightcore is only an artist which makes squeaky high pitched music, not a genre and is considered to ruin an original track. Although, Nightcore has introduced us a new genre we'd like to call "Extratone"

I thought there was no truly bad genre and that every genre had at least one good song... I was wrong.

Nightcore is poorly-done remixes of other artists songs whichare painfully bad. In my opinion, Nightcore has no appeal and I listen to some of the least accesible music genres like Drone, Noise and Free Jazz.

All of this genres that need to be way higher on this list Nightcore shouldn't be this low - donovanthorn

100 Deathcore

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!
