62 Blues Blues

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

63 Contemporary 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!

64 National Socialist Black Metal

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

65 Brostep

Ok, first of all, I'm glad this isn't at the top of the list. Second, this is included in EDM, so how could EDM be worse than Brostep. This list needs to be seriously fixed. The fact that Dubstep is apparently so much worse is actually quite amusing considering that it is also included in EDM. But you know, whatever? Right? It doesn't matter that somebody who doesn't know what they're talking about is making this list. Whatever.

66 Emocore

Raise your hand if this is your favorite. *raises both hands*

67 Country 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

68 Horrorcore

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.

69 Art Punk
70 Alternative Metal
71 Pornogore

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?

72 Noise 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.

How did this get here? Noise is a very good genre of music.

73 Ska

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.

74 Progressive Metal

Worst, not at all, DREAM THEATER, enough said

Prog metal requires a lot of talent - zxm

75 Nintendocore

Just checked out out recently. It's so surreal. But it's also pretty cool.

76 Indie 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

77 Metal

Which retard put metal here? Whoever did, I encourage you to blow whatever you have for a brain out with a shotgun. Metal is amazing. Bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium have excellent music and inspirational lyrics. There's metal songs for whatever mood you're in. It's not all just senseless screaming and Satanism like the average retard thinks. - MetalFoREVer1228

I agree! Everyone who voted to put metal on here should listen to "Welcome To Hell" by Slayer and "Hell Awaits" by Venom, because that's exactly what is waiting for them.

Really? Metal is one of the worst genres? Whoever put this, YOU. CAN GO TO THE PIER, TIE A STONE ON YOUR LEG, AND THROW YOURSELF TO THE SEA! Metal is one of the best genres ever existed. No one can top Metal (except Rock).

Idiots, you can change your vote and the comment can still be on here. - Powerfultekin

I'm really surprised to see metal here, metal is the best music genre of all time, bands really take much time and effort to create their own music, and they make their own music with real passion and love to their fans, lyrically metal is the best genre you can find everything for every mood, and you can find it fast, slow, brutal, evil, melodic and dark, forever who says metal is just untalented musicians are trying to scream with no talent at all, try to play on the instruments like they do, try to growl like they do and try to write lyrics like they do..you will fail if you don't have the real passion of playing music..rap doesn't take any talent to make a song.. - nooreldeen

First off, why is everyone here so violent about this? You're asking metal haters to kill themselves! God! Second, I hate metal myself. Terrible messages, bad voices, bad artists, and basically, it's just random people with cruddy voices screaming whatever the hell they want into a gigantic microphone, all the while, screaming their dry old lungs out in rage! For me, there are only a couple good bands, and they are underrated by these idiots that scream their voice away! I honestly don't care how many dislikes this gets! I don't care if you say it is or is not people screaming bloody murder and satanism into a microphone! I just want to get my point across: Metal, and any form of it, it just garbage. The people who like this crap are just senseless humans, who have no taste in anything worth spending your time on! Metal has, and will always, have a special part on this very accurate list! - NoEntranceHere

78 Christian Contemporary

Ridiculously repetitive and predictable chord progressions, repetitive subject matter, requires very little talent to write and perform, occasionally some decent and unique moments happen, and some vocal performances are good, but as a whole, it's a very vapid genre.

79 Glam Rock V 2 Comments
80 Djent

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
