Top Ten Music Genres That Deserve More Attention


The Top TenXW

1Progressive Rock

Holy S$! T I LOVE prog rock. With such FANTASTIC bands such as Pink Floyd, Rush ( one of my favorite bands ever! ) and many more, I can't really say much about it ( you have to listen yourselves, it's that good! ) Also, Dream Theater isn't prog rock, but in fact PROGRESSIVE METAL. So yea, they're not really the same thing. - MusicalPony


For those who know me well, you might be asking " Isn't Country your least favorite genre? ". True, but I'm talking about "Bro-Country". REAL country music, such as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, should be played on the radio. Not that "bro-country" crap. - MusicalPony


Most people haven't heard of this one actually. - MusicalPony

5Progressive Metal

Don't complain that Prog Metal and Prog Rock are the same thing. Prog metal is a METAL sub genre, not a rock genre. Just saying. - MusicalPony


The truth is, not everyone sees the innovation and thought-provoking meanings that go into quite a lot of it. - PositronWildhawk


A unique blend of rockabilly and hardcore punk ( I think). - MusicalPony


Pretty underrated if you ask me. - MusicalPony

9New Wave

I love this genre but not too many people my age listen to New Wave. - MusicalPony

10Drum n' Bass

The Contenders


A very talented and haunting genre, which nobody seems to appreciate. - PositronWildhawk


No way, this does not deserve attention.

14Industrial Rock

Sort of like rock music but with more electronic elements to it. It's very rare and doesn't really get that much appreciation. You should check it out. It's really cool. I recommend checking out bands like Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, or Rammstein.

15Symphonic Metal
16Industrial Metal

Same as Industrial Rock. Just metal with electronic beats.

17New Age
18Folk Metal
