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. - cjWriter1997V 5 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
How ignorant calling anyone an idiot. Fist of all there is no soft rock genre and evidence of a lack of intelligence. Slow music is in EVERY genre of music from Rock, Metal, Country and so on. Songs about love and stupid lyrics? You just bashed every genre of music. Now about calling people idiots!
This is just incredibly annoying. All of the old people who think that this music is by far the best are close-minded idiots. Now, keep in mind I'm not stereotyping old people. Some people say that today's music is really auto tuned and it is true, Music is auto tuned today but at least they don't sound like ' robots! My bus driver in 7th and 8th grade ALWAYS played this music every day and I think I lost some sensation in my eardrums.
This list is very ignorant! Closed minded my arse. Little children should not speak of music what do they know about it really. You have not been around long enough to have an opinion!
Like Fleetwood mac? You see it as bad? You need a hearing test, friend. - MetalObsessedV 7 Comments
Worst crap ever. I hope it doesn't get more popular because it sucks.
Person who said that punk artists are whiny spoiled kids complaining about first world problems: I want to call you an idiot but I won't because I am trying so hard not to be mad. Having anxiety, being suicidal, having depression, being abused or harassed (physically emotionally or sexually), having no friends, having disabilities or diseases, being bullied, having no freedom, being poor or broke, being ignored or misunderstood, or being accused of something you didn't do are all valid reasons to complain; YOU yourself are complaining about hating a band. Stop insulting people because many punk artists have a higher than average intelligence and are only complaining because of hate and struggle and feeling trapped, anxious, angry, or boring, which is perfectly fine.
I like all types of punk. Even pop punk. I actually think it shouldn't be called pop punk. It should be called nu punk, buzz punk or catchy punk
I suppose something good could come out of this genre but it's become something that people who don't want to listen to mainstream pop but don't like anything more hardcore listen too.

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.
Extratone is to electronic music as horrorcore is to hip hop. I swear I'm not exaggerating when I say it sounds like a chainsaw. But I guess it's still music, though I can't think of anyone who would enjoy it.
This is not music. It's a pulsating beat. It, along with splittercore, might as well be noise music.
Indestinguishable genre that plays kicks for 2000 bpm, and has been proven to cause medical problems.V 1 Comment
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
This is the lowest of the low in Metal, yes even worse than Nu Metal. - htoutlaws2012V 6 Comments
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
Trap is terrible music. I know it belongs with EDM, but I felt like voting for that would be bringing down all EDM.
But I hate trap so much.
I hate this genre, pop and rock are a bad combination, especially Maroon 5. - 05yusuf09
A contradiction within itself.
Bands like OneRepublic, Maroon 5, and The Beatles, define pop-rock. And therefore, it isn't a terrible genre. - SwagFlicks
I love pop rock it's my favorite genre and what the heck is this genre doing on this list? - lovingicecreamsV 7 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
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?V 9 Comments
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
I guess we can fing every genre in this list, my dudes. Which means? The itself music sucks.V 28 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
