81Schlager

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

84Punk Rock

Who put this on here?
One of the best genres ever, if you hate it you have no taste in music.

Forget Green Day & Blink 182. That's not real punk. For real punk, listen to The Ramones, Sex Pistols, Clash, Misfits, Bad Religion, Descendents, Black Flag, Discharge, The Damned, Minor Threat, The Germs, Reagan Youth, Agent Orange, Youth Brigade, Vandals, TSOL, All, X, etc. - ryanrimmel

Punk rock is awesome! Think about The Ramones, think about Sex Pistols, think about Green Day

Not really a skinhead.

85Alternative

Whoever put this here should have their brain (if they even have one) examined. My favourite genre!

Whoever said that OneRepublic sucks is a mental rapist with no music taste.

Plain alternative sucks sometimes but alt-rock is amazing

This is just too cheesy.

87Speedcore

How in the world is this not on the list? It's worse than any other genre out there. The sole purpose of this genre is to see how high you can but the bpm at in production. THAT'S IT. The fact that people enjoy 980 bpm buzzing sound for 3-5 minutes at a time baffles me. Unlike dubstep, Prog House, and techno, this genre takes the crown of the most uncreative bullcrap ever created. Listen to The Quick Brown Fox and the Einstein song and you will follow what I am saying. - RazorBaby

88Manele

Manele is one of the worst music genre in the entire world. I'm Romanian, and I don't listen manele music, gypsies listening. This is not even a music genre, it's crap.
The lyrics usually refer to themes of love, enemies, money, alcoholism, drugs and difficulties of life in general, or some of the songs are specifically dedicated to parties, weddings, funerals etc. Manele style contains objections to music primitiveness and low performance.
Manele are criticized for their lyrical content, which often consists of boasts about the singer's supposed sex appeal, intellect, wealth, social status, and superiority over so-called "enemies". Many singers use bad grammar, repetitive and simplistic rhymes suitable for chanting and are sometimes vulgar and/or misogynistic.

Don't even listen to this music, just vote it up!

89EDM

EDM is the master race of music. The fact that this is even on this list is absolutely discussing. It's als so funny when people think it's just one genre. EDM includes dubstep, drumstep, Brostep, glitch hop, dubstep, trap, techno, Drum and bass, trance, and about a million other ones. It is also funny when people say things like, "it takes no talent to produce dubstep" because in fact, it would be much easier to rhyme some words and call it pop (I'm not hating on pop music) than it is to sit down for days, weeks, or even months to years and make intricate drum patterns and basslines. Believe me, I've tried making it before. It is not an easy thing to just sit down and figure out. And while some are better than others, you can't just slap EDM on a list of bad genres before you even know what you're talking about.

EDM is not a genre.. But it deserves to be on this list as ever since I started hearing teeny-boppers throw this term around, nearly every genre under this umbrella-term (particularly electro house) immediately became a free-for-all where anything could classify as something it wasn't.

This is what happens when idiots use blanket terms to describe music cause they don't know what they're listening to, genres become obsolete :(

Now I hate a genre I once loved and can't find a description for the type of music I do.

For all those people who say EDM is not a genre, you've got it all wrong. It is but it's an "umbrella" term as in it has HEAPS of sub-genres but if you're going to add dubstep, techno, hardcore etc. then don't I repeat DON'T put EDM on this list

91Christian Rock

This lifeless, flaccid excuse for music has a closer resemblance to eternal torment and agony than any sort of salvation or euphoria. Putting "Pop Music" as the worst genre is a misunderstanding of what genres are. Pop music simply encompasses any form of music popular enough to receive mainstream attention. Yes, in the past Michael Jackson, Prince, and the Beatles were all major pop stars with actual talent but so was Chicago, Michael Bolton, and the Captain and Tennille. And yes, today we have Justin Bieber, Young Thug, and David Guetta but we also have Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, and Kendrick Lamar. You can't take the "King" and a straw man bad artist as your reasoning for why Popular Music has gotten worse. There is good and bad in every generation. Now, you want a musical genre that is consistently terrible generation to generation then look no further than skin crawling Christian Rock. Music is meant to be grand and emotional. Your meant to feel strongly towards ...more

Styx is the only band I know, but it's too generic.

92Glitch Hop

All music takes talent to make. Just because you don't like a genre of music doesn't mean it's a bad genre. From computers to guitars, its all music. I know for a fact that glitch hop is hard to make, and it sounds good to me at least.

So apparently mistakes in recording a song counts for music?

97Dance Punk
98Trance

Why is this on there?

I think this genre is very great, because it has beautiful melodies, heavenly sounds... I mean it can sound very relaxing and it can make me dance.

NOBODY said it was possible to hate trance. NOBODY. This list is inaccurate.

Dubstep with no drop essentially, its trash.

99Christian 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.

100Folk

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!
