Most Popular Types of Music in History

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Thrash Metal

Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax

To me this is my favorite kind of music, Metallica is my favorite band and I love all the four horsemen. I don't know why but most teenagers don't like this kind of music anymore, but I'm 15 and this is the first type of music I remember listening to and I grew up with this music. SO FOR ALL OF US METAL HEADS OUT THERE, KEEP ON HEAD BANGING! ✊😎


Salsa is boss. I have no idea what so ever as to why you all can't see this! I'm in 6 grade and it truly is a shame I even have to tell anyone that. I'm sorry, but you fools out there that say salsa isn't boss better get the steppin because it ain't happenin'!

Salsa is an elegant music to dance to it brings out your inner self and creativitie as well. When you dance and listen to this type of music there's no way you can't not move to the beat.

This should be in the top ten. Salsa and Merengue are based on rhythm. Rock n Roll, pop, hip hop, & country are boring.


When you're in a bad mood it can calm you down and tell a story of how you feel with feeling

47Rap Rock

Linkin park, Hollywood undead, Limp Bizkit, Eminem... I just love this type of music. The rap rock must be #1, not the 29... Just think about it, you must love those band's and their music...

I think bluegrass is awesome go try gangsta grass

Bluegrass is enjoyable to listen to.


Most of the people in the US have some Irish or Scottish in them. The popularity of the music is evident from the scores of Titanic, Braveheart, and The Last of the Mohicans.

Demon Hunter all the way!


I don't like it because I don't think it's real punk, I think it's what posers and teenagers listen to. But it is extremely popular. It includes bands like Green Day, Blink 182, and Paramore.

I think pop-punk is a great genre its just more of an appealing sound versus actual punk.

57A Capella

Capella really lets a person know if you can sing because you are not hiding behind the instruments

A Capella, often written as Acapella, is a musical art that started in the early days of the Russian Empire, in medieval times. A Capella is any lyrics without instruments, but nowadays instrument sounds are made with the mouth and hands. Many colleges have A Capella leagues, and this dying musical art is rising out of the ashes, with A Capella artists such as Rockapella, Pentatonix, The Beach Boys, and other single artists.


Mariachi should not be all over here because it has rhythm and many people at the continent of America love that kind of music.


An amazing form of music, even though its lyrics are somewhat weird. - SwagFlicks


I think emo music is pretty great but not all people like it because it different it speaks for way down. My favorite emo bands are My chemical romance,Mayday parade,Fall out boy,The all American rejects,Paramore
