101Gospel

I believe Gospel music is the most popular and probably best selling out of all of the genre's because, before there was rock, pop, r&b, soul, jazz, country, etc. , Gospel music was the first! Really, if you think about it all the other genres were in a unique way was birthed from it. Why do you think that, whenever someone sings other genres of music you can hear all of the variations of vocal, and melodic styling that Gospel music possess within singing the "Good News of Jesus Christ? " The reason is Gospel music goes back well over 400 years, in other words, multiple decades of slavery and the sufferings of African Americans had to go through, while yet, in spite of their struggles and pain;found a methodical way of expressing/interpreting their emotions through songs of redemption and hope..."THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST! "

102Hardstyle

This should be one of the best because its simply represent the fast dancing in the streets such as hard-style shuffling (the original shuffling)

If this list was made in Europe, hardstyle would be top 3. This is the kind of music you wish you had at your party.

All those kids think that the top 40 charts, especially in the UK, has the best tunes to dance to. I swear if euphoric Hardstyle was released into the mainstream it could get big. Right now it's still only supported by a niche group. Either way, HARDSTYLE IS KING!

Hardstyle is my life people out of my class say rap and trap but I think it's the best

103Flamenco

In honor of the recently passed away Paco De Lucia.R.I.P. Flamenco is one of the best genres of guitar music besides rock. It always puts you in a certain mood.

Its need a decade of practise and patience to play flamenco music.

Come on, listen to andalusian cadence, so melodically beautiful

105Electro-Industrial
106Lo-fi

If more people knew about this genre, it would be much more popular. Essentially hip-hop with low audio quality samples. Very 'urban' sound. Popular on SoundCloud

107Polka

Polka is very very good with my favorite polka bands being weird al

Famous bands include Neutral Milk Hotel and The Radioheads (The Fridge Sessions era). It combines avant-garde Hip Hop and Post-Scaruffy core.

108Gothic Rock

A genre most people stereotype with being popular among girls. Our society needs a complete overhaul and we need to have a mandatory music class where we teach people about all music genres.

I think more people would like it if they had any idea what it was. Bauhaus, Christian Death, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Souxie and the Bandshees, Virgin Prunes,etc.

109Country Pop
110Violin Pop

I have never heard of this, but pop is the reason why music sucks nowadays.

111Acid Rock

Just listen to Light my Fire by The Doors. People say its one of the greatest american rock songs of all time. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

112Baroque Pop

Combining the grandiose sound of classical music and the catchiness of pop. Seriously amazing.

113Shoegaze

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

114Deep House
115Free Jazz
11650s Doo-wop

Funny how this is at 111. And it has "50s" in it

117Indie Folk
118New Jack Swing
119Alternative Folk
120Experimental Metal
