A complete disgrace to metal and reason why there are so many stereotypes about metal.Screw NSBM

62Extratone

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.

63Country Folk

Mumford & sons, anything that comes under folk/country where I am literally falling asleep/want to hit my head against a brick wall as it is SO BORING I'd rather listen to a meditation cd filled with whale sounds to fall asleep than this 'genre'! Bring back Soundgarden :-D

64Art Punk

66Alternative Metal
67Ska

You got to listen to sublime and the older stuff like The English Beat/General public.

Ska can be pretty cool. The older stuff is better than a lot of the crap put out in the mid to late 90s. I like ska that sticks more to their jazz and jamaican roots. 2 Tone, early third wave, and first wave is mainly what I listen to.

68Progressive Metal

Worst, not at all, DREAM THEATER, enough said

Prog metal requires a lot of talent - zxm

70Noise Music

Not all noise music is void of rhythm and melody. But some of it is, and it's understandable that people wouldn't see the musicianship behind it. I won't try to convince anyone it's extremely hard to make (It isn't), but some people enjoy it, and for that reason alone, I believe it is music.

As far as I can see this is literally just harsh noise, no structure or flow at all from what I've heard. but at the end of the day all music is noise it just depends on how you interpret what you're hearing I guess..

It depends on what you're expecting. Noise music beats up anything one knows from traditional musical arrangements, but there are few genres that can make you feel as laid back as noise if you listen to it at the right moment and a fitting mindset.

Noise Rock is pretty great, Noise Black Metal is mighty savage but pure Noise? Not feeling it.

71Folk

While I can sort of respect some of the early faces of this genre, overall it comes off as cliche to me that it is highly unimaginative, boring, and generally requires a low level of musical talent. The idea of having a message is used to cloak the significance of its musical hollowness. Anyone with an acoustic guitar they've only been playing for 2 months and a diary full of autobiography can easily get their foot in the door in the singer-songwriter portion of this genre. The musical ideas are cliche and dull to a point that its pretty much all the same song.

Folk is one of the greatest genres out there the traditional cowboy folk was amazing and then there's contemporary folk like Bob Dylan & Joan Baez two of the greatest musicians to ever walk this earth

Bob Dylan alone makes Folk a good genre. Seriously if you don't like Bob Dylan you need to change your view on life and music.

This has been around almost as long as humans have!

72Indie Rock

This term no longer has much of a real meaning. What is called indie rock today seems to fall somewhere on a spectrum between punk/noise influenced sounds, retro-fetishism, and nerdy pop music sung by people who sound like they are about to fall asleep. In fact, a lot of what I've investigated that gets tagged as indie rock strikes me as little more than another form of pop music, and it strikes me that a lot of the music is actually pretty mainstream in its popularity, so the label no longer makes sense. On the less pop end of it, a good chunk of it just sounds like garage style bands that can hardly play their instruments and purposefully make a fetish of lo-fi or unpleasant sounds. In either case it always ends up coming off as very boring and inauthentic. This genre puts me to sleep, everything about it emanates a lack of imagination, creativity, and talent.

The Arctic Monkeys, Palma Voilets, Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers.. Indie Rock is great, more guitar music on the radio please better than auto-cue rubbish and Dub-step.

This is the worst thing that ever existed in Alternative music, and around the Rock in general.

I do not understand why so many people are considering this as great today, if everything is just a mass of crude, tasteless and boring sounds. The bands of this genre have no talent, all they do is mutter front of a microphone, and guitarist with drummers only makes a stressful environment musical sounds horrible and rudimentary.

"Indie" haha... however is just mainstream this time.

OVERRATED CRAP

Indie rock has got very good writing - zxm

73Pornogore

Well, I don't even know what this music genre is, but I can tell that it's pretty horrible. I'm just glad that prog rock isn't on this list.

This just sounds awful and disturbing

Is this metalcore with pornographic lyrics?

75Djent

Djent can be bad ass sometimes, animals as leader could be considered djent, maybe

It can be great sometimes but for the most part, eh

77Christian Metal

Actually they belong just fine. Metal has to do with how the music is written and performed, not necessarily the lyrical content. You just have a narrow mind of metal genres

The word "Christian" and the word "Metal" don't belong together.

I honestly cringe whenever thinking of this.

79Hardcore (Electro)

Why are Hardcore and Electro put together? Yeah I guess Hardcore is kind of like a sped up version of Electro-House but still what!?

Techno metal, Gabber or just hardcore is a style of electro that is characterized by beats at a huge rate beyond 200 bpm, this style was created in Rotterdam in the 90s, because of the house ( music ) and society both political and religious

This style has many subgenres such as speedcore, deathcore or terror, among others MainStyle

The most prominent artists would (now neophyte bodylotion, omar santana, angerfist, gabber vienna masterz etc.)

80Schlager

Ugh! I hate this so much! Terrible lyrics, terrible music, everything! I'm German, but schlager is obviously the worst thing the Germans invented!

The. worst. ever.
I can't understand why ROCK should be on this list. Schlager is the only genre which deserves #1 of worst music genres EVER
