Top Ten Best Music Genres

61 Darkwave

I can't describe my love for this genre.
It's incredibly versatile despite the constant dark atmosphere. The darkwave genre contains heavy, dramatic, close-to-metal songs, and childishly innocent yet eerie songs to (think Kanon Wakeshima). Weird, but good, and somewhat trashy sounding yet deep at the same time.

62 West Coast Hip Hop

Outlaw immortalz, Dr Dre, Snoop dogg, NWA, most influential subgenre of the most influential genre of the past 3 decades.

63 Electronic Rock
64 Drum and Bass

This is all about energy and rhythm, only the intelligent people who can keep up with the tempo will get the full reward.

The deep bass along side of the fast paced drum pattern just mixes so well. I don't know why it's so low, but Drum and Bass really is an amazing type of music.

If you're going to get into this genre, start with the band Pendulum.

I love how it combines low-end sub-bass with fast breakbeat rithms, which makes it so much more energetic and vibrant than most electronic genres who use "4-to-the-floor" beats. It should be much higher up this list

65 J Pop

Terrible. No originality, no personality.

Who needs a group with 100 underage girls? They would be switched out everyday and ya'll wont care

Cause all of their fans are either young girls who like cutesy stuff pedos, or sugar daddies

This is good stuff. I like cute Japanese girls singing awesome music. Especially BABYMETAL which is Kawaii Metal, but that's a mix between Metal and J-Pop so it qualifies.

66 Art Rock

One particular band has turned me onto this expressive style of rock, and that band is Florence + the Machine. Her ethereal vocals and the incredible backing music was just so captivating to me, and her lyrics complement the style so perfectly. It's a very unique style and that's why I like Art Rock so much. - theOpinionatedOne

Art Rock acts include Roxy Music, David Bowie, Jethro Tull, Electric Light Orchestra, Moody Blues, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Procol Harum, Peter Gabriel... And still on 51?!
Come on people..

67 Instrumental Hip Hop

I know she's a pop artist, but I think Adele's voice is good for instrumental songs.

Um, why? This genre already sucks.

The genre with the most soul and most emotions, and there aren't ever any lyrics. - InsertNameHere

68 Christian

Christian music is amazing! I listen to and play guitar to it every day! I know some people say there is no talent needed to write Christian music, but you guys are wrong! If you wanna see some hard to play christian music, search up some Skillet, or Red for example. There are some bands that aren't as hard rock and not as hard to play, but even the smallest addition to a song can make it the most popular in the world!

I don't think this classifies as a genre of music. (Maybe Choir or Christian Choir? ) But all of my favorite bands who play metal, and rock are Christian... So +1

I know for myself, it helps me in every part of my life. Just like living water the praise moves within me

You guys are all going to hell. This should be number 1, NOT 61.

69 Folk rock

Neil young, The band! This is some good music!

70 Classic Country

Yes! The original soul of country! Why is this at 62? It should be at least in the top 40 or something.

Bobby Bare is the best artist ever

71 Russian Folk
72 Avant-Garde
73 Comedy Rock
74 Techno

It's just cool. Deal with it, and before somebody think I only listen to techno. You are WRONG. And it's sad pop is 15th

75 East Coast Hip Hop
76 Nightcore

Deal with it guys, nightcore is trash and also promotes stealing other peoples music and making money out of it. Should be way lower if you ask me.

If anything, Nightcore is only an artist which makes squeaky high pitched music, not a genre and is considered to ruin an original track. Although, Nightcore has introduced us a new genre we'd like to call "Extratone"

I thought there was no truly bad genre and that every genre had at least one good song... I was wrong.

Nightcore is poorly-done remixes of other artists songs whichare painfully bad. In my opinion, Nightcore has no appeal and I listen to some of the least accesible music genres like Drone, Noise and Free Jazz.

All of this genres that need to be way higher on this list Nightcore shouldn't be this low - donovanthorn

77 Indie Pop

So underrated! This genre is like pop music but has more meaning then generic topics! Indie pop Artists/Bands write, compose, and produce their own tracks which gives this genre a Uniqueness!

I'm in love with this but it's so underrated. Some don't even know indie music exists!

Neva listen to that ! I have nightmares about having nightmares of listening to it

Best Genre Ever. Listen to it.

78 Country Rap

This new sub genre has evolved from country music and is very catchy and the perfect music for long drives

Why the hell is this so far down this genre is great with people like young gunner, Jawga boyz, Bottle neck, Twang and round, bubba Sparxxx, Dez, The Lacs, Moonshine bandits the list goes on and on it should be a lot more popular and when it come to listening to music during a drive there's no better genre the only genre better then country rap is country it's self - donovanthorn

Jason Alden dirt road is a good song.

79 Neoclassical Darkwave
80 Country Pop
