Top Ten Worst Music Genres

101Goregrind

Goregrind is a genre so abysmal and morally shameful that it makes death metal and rap almost respectable. There's absolutely nothing worse than goregrind. Nothing.

Just by looking at the lyrics of some gore grind songs just really makes me really sick. There's a band called Intense hammer rage (I think it's rage) and their lyrics are highly revolting, disgusting and repulsive.

So it has songs about blood, guts, and violence?

Hard to tell apart from grindcore sometimes.

103Worship
104Scene

hey lets take something that everyone who looks exactly like us did but play it a fret down that is all scene music is

Scene is a subculture, not a musical genre. I personally consider it to somewhat be a ridiculous form of (pre) teen pseudo-rebellion... At least judging from the scene kids I've gotten to know.

105Post-hardcore

This baffles me. These bands with the stupid hair and makeup think they are the successors to the Hardcore Punk legends like Black Flag, Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Discharge, Agent Orange, etc.This is just emo garbage. The lyrics aren't at all what punk/hardcore is about. This is just a modern, depressed version of Glam Metal. Simple music for simple people - ryanrimmel

More post hardcore is getting better. Think of Hands Like Houses. They're really good. Quite a bit is bad, but CTE is one of my favorite bands and they're pretty good

Uh... This is the best genre ever no doubt

106Brazilian/Baile Funk

In america, the ghetto people have gangsta rap or hip hop. In Brazil, we get this bull, this is FAR WORSE than rap music, if this is even music at all, and the lyrics are usually nasty as hell. I am Brazilian too.

107Funeral Doom

Never heard of it, but the name alone is awful - theOpinionatedOne

Yeah this sucks. It's funeral organs played over a slow metal riff, with soft death growls. If you have depression or something, do yourself a favor and don't listen to this - ryanrimmel

Really? Just because the songs are slow and last for nearly 10 minutes? Get a life. Listen to Frowning and DOOM:VS.

109Dangdut

Well, I'm neutral to dangdut. It's not so great, but I think it's better than all kinds if pop songs these days combined - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

The beat makes no sense, I don't even like the singer voice, everybody should know this genre - ComelCumil

For those who don't know what that is? I recommend you Google it or something else...

110Depressive Suicidal Black Metal

Guys, I'm sorry, but I will never like Metal. I try to appreciate it, but they're just a bunch of whiny, screeching, babies. Metal fans always hate on Emo, (which I honestly dislike as well), when the lyrics are pretty much the same. Sorry, Metal sucks.

111Dark Ambient

What's so bad about dark ambient music? If you've ever been scared during a tense moment in a horror film, you understand the power of dark ambience.

Alone as a genre, I wouldn't listen to it. But when a band incorporates dark ambient into their sound, its awesome. Check out Neurosis and Sunn O))) - ryanrimmel

112Soca

You want to hear a genre of music that literally is a slap in the face to music? Then listen to this garbage, most of the lyrics are sooo terrible, to be honest the lyrics are just a couple sentences on loop about grinding and dry humping people. Add that with the nasty vocals horrible sounds, soca is by far the worst genre there is. (8) WINE YA BOTTOM, WINE YA BOTTOM, WINE YA BOTTOM (8) yea those are the lyrics in soca

113Chillstep

Chillstep is AMAZING! Just close your eyes and try not to fall asleep

I love all electronic music, and this is no different!

Chillstwp is the only genre of music that has made me cry. How can anyone HATE it?

:( how people listen to this I don't know!
Techno +robots making love = chill step!

114Garage Rock

Best music out there gettin drunk n stoned jamming in the garage

This is one of the most honest genres of music. Especcially the mid-sixties garage rock. This were kids doing their thing like they wanted how music should be. They didn't wait for big companies or labels who made you listen what was right in their opinion. What they didn't hear on radio they created in their garage.

115New Wave

Ah yes let just bash something that actually spun into many things and actually influenced much more than most youngsters have no idea about. Get some schooling kids! Actually you should not post something you know nothing about you were not even around. Stick to bashing your own music of today. Don't insult others music. This is a horrible topic for a list anyway. Music is so personal and am glad I listen to many, many, many different genres of music. People should not be so narrow anyway. I found this list and voted for pop which is not a genre anyway. But to browse this list bashing other peoples very personal interests. BAD!

How can you hate New Wave? The best music of all time has always been made by New Wave artists.

Heavy metal, death metal, and pretty much all the metal genres we have today come from new wave, how do you hate that?

Some of it is absolutely horrible but it's not all bad. Like Come on Eileen is a pretty good song but yeah, most of it's bad.

116Neo-Classical Metal

Someone who judges metal and thinks it's all satanic put it here. It takes so much talent. I've heard renditions of the moonlight sonata, and that sounds impossible to do on a guitar. I fully endorse this genre and I think it shouldn't be here

I'm glad that body has voted neo-classical metal. Such a beautiful genre with bands like Stratovarius and Galneryus. I'm in love.

I like neo-classical metal like Moi Dix Mois (though now they're gothic metal but eh), and Galneryus so I think this genre shouldn't be here.

Yngwie Malmsteen?! Listen to him!

117Vaporwave

Pretentious.
Better than you.
Special Snowflake.

These are the words to describe the Vaporwave community. They make music that consists of 80's pop music slowed down and rehashed. The 80's were a bad enough time for music already.

118Indian/Punjabi Rap

Every song sounds exactly the same, lousy rap over unintelligible scream/moaning over the same stock beat and sitar or some other string instrument.

They all sound the same and they're all terrible.

119Turbo-folk

Worst ever music genre, has stupid melody, stupid lyrics, mentioning of names, negative impacts to people in lyrics, too much personification (e.G. song called "You are the drug for my soul", always talks about love and weddings, etc. Arrogantly the worst music genre. If I make a wedding ceremony it's all rap and techno. - guyisbackable

Yes pop is awful, but merging drunken, sloppy, half-assed Balkan folk music with cringeworthy pop is even worse. Western countries have it easy; just listen to Severina, Ceca or Seka Aleksic. It's not even music; just bad softcore pornography with some twanging of cheap instruments in the background. If you like turbo-folk you don't like good music.

120Big Room House

The worst electo house subgenre that just uses simple beats and easy to make genre that all you need is just to fiddle around with things and bam, there you go

Why is this so low? It should be at least top ten...
