Top Ten Best Music Genres

61 Industrial Rock

A perfect combination of rock and industrial (a form of electronic music). Noble bands include Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, KMFDM, Filter, and Rammstein.

This I think should get more attention and it falls under the techno category even though it is a mix of rap and heavy metal.

One of the best forms of electronic rock out there.

62 Synthwave

Not many people know this genre and I believe they are missing out. The music is beautiful and creates a warm and nostalgic atmosphere. Bands like Miami Nights 1984, FM Attack and Cougar Synth are a few examples.

63 Neo-classical Metal Neo-classical Metal

Has to be the best music genre. It gets me every time, taking advice from the masters of long ago and mixing it with the creativity and awesomeness that takes place today (called metal).

A very great music genre. It takes a lot of skill too.

It's the answer for people who say metal is just noise.

64 Gangsta Rap

It's their way of expressing their feelings and talk about the struggles in their life. Only people who don't understand these struggles don't like the music

Swiggity swooty I'm comin fo that booty

65 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.

66 Ambient

Ambient takes you places, listening to it is like going to rivers, oceans etc.

Ambient music in Minecraft is cool and dramatic if your using surround sound - Harri666

67 West Coast Hip Hop

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

68 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

69 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

70 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

71 Trap

Trap is not just "another electronic music genre." It's not my favorite, but if you dig deeper, you will find some great, melodic, meaningful trap music. Electronic music gets a lot of hate because when most people think of trap music/electronic music, they're thinking of the mainstream EDM songs, and assume that these songs represent the entire electronic industry (which, for the record, they don't). There are great electronic songs out there, you just have to find them.

Trap is one of the best music genres out there. I can't believe how this is 48th

Trap is actually one of the worst music genres out there at least in my opinion because like many other electronic music genres it sounds absolutely awful (note this is all my opinion)! - TheThomasThomas

Trap is not just the mainstream trap. There is also calmer, more melodic versions that cover more emotion.

Trap rap is trash rap - 445956

72 Electronic Dance Music

EDM has concerts that gain national notability! It is the highest climbing genre and mixes with pop and rap artists that score hundreds of thousands of views and positive feedback.

I wouldn't say it's the best; but it deserves to be much higher than this. It encompasses some of the other genres put on this list. - Lasvegasxavier

This is the kind of music that really hypes up the crowd!

73 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.

74 Folk rock

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

75 Russian Folk
76 Industrial Metal V 1 Comment
77 Comedy Rock
78 East Coast Hip Hop
79 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.

80 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"

It's like a penis in a biscuit.

So good it's so pure good listen to
