41Grindcore

This is the worst music you can find, it sounds like a pig getting skinned alive or thrown in acid.

For someone who likes extreme Metal, listen to Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Extreme Noise Terror, Napalm Death, and early Carcass. That is what good grindcore is. Don't listen to Anal C*** or any of that powerviolence garbage - ryanrimmel

Ugh. Just no. Thinking about it gives me headaches and nightmares. - Songsta41

43Danger Music

It's literally noise made to cause harm to the audience! - MKBeast

The main purpose of Danger Music is to put people in danger. No thanks. - djpenquin999

44Reggae

Why is reggae even on this list reggae from the 60s/70s is awesome, most people don't realise the diversity and the different sub genres in reggae.

Are you kidding me Bob Marley, Soja, Through the Roots I love reggae - donovanthorn

You obviously haven't heard of Bob Marley.

Pretty good, Bob Marley is awesome. - cjWriter1997

45Bubblegum

I don't think this is a genre. I think it's a way to mock pop if anything. At least that's how I use it - ryanrimmel

Bubblegum music like kesha is awesome, I like bubblegum pop.

46Horrorcore

Many people hate horrorcore because of the abysmal rap duo Insane Clown Posse. Understandable, but my reasoning for hating horrorcore is actually quite different, and to be frank, ironic.

It's because of Eminem. Almost every time he tries horrorcore he epically fails. '97 Bonnie and Clyde, Kim, Kill You, the entirety of Relapse? The only two times he pulled off horrorcore right were Stan and Bad Guy. Even then, can you really consider Bad Guy horrorcore? - WonkeyDude98

Terrible rappers singing about Hell and death. That's all it is. And it's horrible.

These people have something seriously wrong with them - thetopten

Anything and everything horror related does NOT belong in rap. Death metal or black metal would do.

47RockRock music is a music genre that was created in the 1950s . The genre really got popular in the 60s, 70s and 80s . It generally consists of a guitar player, a drummer, bass player and singer . There are a lot of rock subgenres .

How is rock even on this list some of the biggest bands ever like led zeppelin, the Beatles, rush, the rolling stones, the who, Pink Floyd, jimi Hendrix, cream, guns n roses, queen, van halen, ac/dc, aerosmith, bon jovi, system of a down and the doors are some of the most talented bands ever to walk earth now I think death metal, heavy metal, punk, prog rock, rock obviously and even some black metal shouldn't be on the list because there all fantastic genres for the most part. just how is rock or any of the other genres I listed even on this list. rock is the best genre ever and can't be beat

I'm gonna list some awesome bands, Rush, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Guns and Roses, Black Sabbath, Queen. Why is this a bad genre

Rock is not the worst it should be first on the best.. - paasadani

No way! Almost 85% music fans are rock related. Like I said even the fan who says I hate rock, he/she is somehow related to rock. - zxm

49Disco

This is a decent genre. Would've been lower if not for the rise of rock and roll. - SwagFlicks

No caption needed. This is the worst genre ever

Le Freak, I will Survive, Dancing Queen, Stayin' Alive.
All songs of these 4 were great. And disco.
The reason you don't hear disco anymore because of some asss in 1980 who put dynamite next to disco plates.

51Metalcore

In general, taking metal and all its subgenres, watering it down, and feeding it to the masses. Oftentimes it has clean vocals, no gutturals, but there is screaming. Add a dash of punk, sometimes thrash, and sometimes crybaby lyrics.

Of course there are some great bands that have adapted elements of the genre into their sound, one example is the band "Darkest Hour". Although I would say they are more melodic death metal than metalcore. Their album "Deliver Us" is a fantastic record.

Good example of a crap band is Bring Me The Horizon. Lyrics that could have been written up by a 9-year-old who just learned his first few swearwords. Excessive amount of breakdowns. Poor musicianship. Of course, teen (and sometimes older) girls love this band, but it's more about their lead singer Oli Sykes. They scream for him, and he virtually has no talent. Oh, but he can do really high-pitched screams, you say? Well, that would be good if it actually sounded any good. ...more

I voted only to vote for the terrible wanna-be metal bands like Atreyu/Bullet For my Valentine/Bring Me The Horizon. I have no problem with early Metallica Hardcore bands like Hatebreed, nor can I really hate on Killswitch Engage. But honestly, most Metalcore bands are bands that wanted to be metal yet also successful, and that's what they came up with.

I agree that there are too much bands calling theirselves metalcore and are just wannabe-metallers, but for me that's not the real metalcore, its just abuse.
When I think of metalcore I think of: as I lay dying, august burns red, parkway drive, trivium, unearth. great bands who made awesome music.

I see the point why this is on the list, but I think the REAL metalcore doesn't deserve this. - Flav

Lol metalcore sucks

Listen to real metal

52Jazz

Jazz isn't for everyone, but at least it isn't obnoxious and uncomfortable to listen to like pop, rap, and country. For people who like music to lower their blood pressure, this is the perfect genre. Also, I personally don't care for lyrics when listening to music, so jazz works wonderful for me personally. I will say, even though I love jazz, there are a lot of songs that sound the exact same or similar. It's a universal fault however in a lot of music. TL;DR: Jazz is fantastic, but I can understand why some people don't like it. It produces the opposite effect of what most modern radio/pop star/rock musician produce.

This is the most skill-required genre, I guess... I don't like it that much, but I wouldn't put it on the list. - Flav

Jazz is an amazing genre. It ranges from making you feel a spectrum of emotions to making you respect the person who is able to make you feel that way. - SwagFlicks

It would be better if it wasn't filled with pretentious snobs and elitists much like metal, classical, prog. Why do all good genres (in my opinion) are filled with these sort of people?

53Pop Rock

I hate this genre, pop and rock are a bad combination, especially Maroon 5. - 05yusuf09

Screw Pop-rock.

A contradiction within itself.

What the hell is pop rock doing on this list?

I love pop rock it's my favorite genre and what the heck is this genre doing on this list? - lovingicecreams

Makes me cringe every time I hear it, really, why isn't this a top 10?

This genre should have been in the top ten. The accordian has to be the worst instrument ever invented. The person who invented it should have been strung up by the bollocks and then screwed with a chainsaw. Each note that comes out of an accordian sends sithers down my spine.

55Trap Music

I love EDM, but I hate this genre. Sure, there are some good trap songs, but for the most part, it's kinda bad. Although making trap music, along with other types of EDM, is difficult to make. So I am going to stay away from this genre a bit, and learn to appreciate it.

This is why hip hop is mostly terrible in the mainstream these days. Future with heavily autotuned vocals mumbling is embarrassing to humanity

This is terrible. All electronic music is, because it doesn't take much talent

Should be called crap music.

57J-Pop

Some of it is alright. Rest is terrible.

This is actually my favorite music genre. Being an anime fan, I'm exposed to a lot of anime songs sung by famous J-Pop singers. I really like J-Pop music artists like LiSA, Eir Aoi, and GARNiDELiA, but I think what makes most people hate J-Pop is that most J-Pop singers sound all squeaky and autotuned over 9000. But trust me, there are some good J-Pop singers out there. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm more into J-rock, but some of J-pop is good. It's the J-pop idols that ruin it all (you know, the cutesy chimpmunk voiced girls like AKB48, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, etc.) but Jpop such as Nana Mizuki, Kalafina (though Kalafina isn't really pop, but they are pretty popular, so...), FictionJunction (same as Kalafina, not really pop...) is good. But J-rock is life.

59Blues

Anyone who puts the blues on this list is totally uneducated about music at all considering the genres you like are derived from the blues.

I listen to heavy metal and rock, but blues should not be on this list.

What blues is quite good to be honest.

Blues help to created rock music and rock helped to create metal music. So blues is important - zxm

60Contemporary Christian

I'm a Christian, but I honestly do find this very stale. Almost the same exact sound, no uniqueness.

I'm religious but Christian music is just to slow

People are messed up this stuff is good there are just liberals every where

One word: boring!
