If you want to try out different music genresMcgillacuddy This is for people who want to give other music genres a shot. I've decided to create a list of different genres that I've experienced, and list some of my personal favorite songs from the genres as good starters for people to get into the genre. Hopefully this works...
I listen to a lot of orchestral music, but mainly EPIC ones. Ones that make me feel like a badass, and I think everyone really needs to try this genre out. I'll give some of the most kick ass songs in my opinion, and I'll also mix up the vibes between each song.
Heart of Courage by Two Steps From Hell - Two Steps From Hell is one of the most well known epic orchestras, producing music mostly for films. Heart of Courage is their most well-known track, as it presents a beautiful heroic melody and a very strong buildup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRLdhFVzqt4
E.M.A. by Hiroyuki Sawano - This is one of my most favorite tracks in the genre. It's from the Attack on Titan soundtrack, and it also has a very heroic and powerful vibe to it. Needs to be heard.
Battle of Rose by Shinkichi Mitsumune - This is from the anime Rozen Maiden. Like many anime action songs, this one is more of rock orchestra, as it is more upbeat and includes strong guitar work. Another one of my favorites.
Into the Fire by KPM Music - This song is another hybrid, which is more electronic orchestra. A very fast-paced and quite addicting track with an awesome beat.
One of the most underrated genres around, even compared to freaking country or electronic music. This genre gets very addicting, and it contains a lot of hybrids.
Skip Tracer by Four80East - This was the first song that got me into jazz, and for good reason. This song kicks ass! Four80East is known more as an Electro Jazz group, as their songs contain a lot of work with keyboard and some electronica. They remain as one of my most favorite jazz bands.
Sometimes by B-Tribe - B-Tribe is a Hispanic Electro Jazz group, but one of their albums called Sensual Sensual is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Their songs are simply beautiful and relaxing.
Thoughtform by Fat Jon - Fat Jon is one of the music producers of an anime called Samurai Champloo, which is from the same creator of Cowboy Bebop. Fat Jon creates amazing songs, and his album Rapture Kontrolle is arguably his best release. Fat Jon's music is more Instrumental Hip-Hop, but with a strong jazz background. Thoughtform is my second favorite song from him.
Prince of the Sea by Lenny White - I'm gonna be real with you: this is one of the greatest songs you can ever hear in your entire life. Lenny White is in Fusion Jazz, which is like jazz music mixed with rock. This 11-minute track is crazy good, as it features absolutely wicked guitar work.
Gardens of Babylon by Jean-Luc Ponty - Also in the Fusion Jazz category, I couldn't leave it out of the list because it has an insanely addicting hook.
This genre is well-known, but not as popular as most since it's, of course, mostly just artificial music, but there are a lot of track in this genre that kick ass all-round.
Into the Labyrinth by Kraddy - Kraddy was one of the members of Glitch Mob, and this is my favorite solo song from him. It's a very haunting yet unique track.
Ricochet Love by Waterflame - Waterflame produces music for low-end video games, but his tracks are awesome, especially this one. It has a fast-paced rhythm and strong melodies, giving more of an epic feel.
Hold Your Colour by Pendulum - Pendulum is one of the most well-known drum-and-bass electronic groups. This is one of their most well-known tracks. Very good chorus line on this one.
Holdin' On by MONSTA (Skrillex and Nero Remix) - This is a very kick ass remix. I could race in the Indy 500 with this track on loop and win.
Cold Rock the Mic by Apollo 440 - This is more of a electronic rock song, but I grew up with it as it was part of the Gran Turismo 2 soundtrack. Fast-paced and kicks loads of ass with a sick hook.
Chillstep and Liquid
This is more softer electronic music. A YouTube channel that I'm currently subscribed to known as MrSuicideSheep showcases hundreds of tracks in this category. Very soothing vibes from these.
Fortress by Illenium - Very beautiful and somewhat epic track with wonderful vocals from Joni Fatora. The main melody and piano loop really make this track.
Learn to Fly by Metrik - It's mainly a looped track, but it sure is addicting. Has a very wonderful vibe and addicting hook.
On My Own by TroyBoi - Great rhythm in this song and an awesome chorus line with strong vocals.
Touch by LUCASV - You can fall asleep on this one. It's a very soothing and simple track.
Break You Down by Loz Contreras - It's a repetitive song, but that piano loop... it's killer.
It's a good sign when I've heard exactly one of these. I'm a wannabe lol - WonkeyDude98
Which song would that be? - Mcgillacuddy
Heart Of Courage. - WonkeyDude98
Noice,the genre I'm into is dubstep(I don't even know if these songs are dubstep),I recommend songs like Corrosive by Xtrullor.Ego Death by once again Xtrullor,At The Speed Of Light by Dimiran47,and Space Battle by F-777,by the way,i would say it's a very,very different,because this genre has no lyrics,at all - Nateawesomeness
Okay. I'll check those out - Mcgillacuddy
B-Tribe getting even slight exposure? YASS! - ProPanda

I dislike rap music... never understood it. - visitor
Use Genius. It's a site that describes lyrics to songs - Mcgillacuddy
I really don't like rap or electronic for the mainstream stuff and have not been getting into anything new lately. I might try it once I am listeneing to something besides Alice In Chains - Lucretia
