Top Ten Best Music Genres

101 Synthwave

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.

102 Ragtime

Ragtime - playing on and around the beat to create syncopation and reinforce the sense of rhythm, thus creating a ragged time signature.

Scott Joplin was gifted at piano

105 Piano Rock
106 Gospel

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! "

107 Flamenco

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

108 Hardstyle

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

110 Electro-Industrial
111 Lo-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

112 Polka

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.

113 Violin Pop

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

114 Acid Rock

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

115 Baroque Pop

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

116 Deep House
117 Free Jazz
118 50s Doo-wop

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

119 Indie Folk
120 New Jack Swing
