61 Rap Metal

I'm pretty sure rap metal is just another word for nu metal, and it is not garbage. Nu metal is awesome, anyone who says it sucks has simply not listened to enough of it.

Listen if you have

Listen if you have

Guys everyone who want to know the diffrebt of nu metal and rap metal that is in rap metal you can have guitar solo's and It's without electronic aounds. Listen to rage against the machine and after this listen to Linkin Park or slipknot and you can hear the diffrent sound of music

62 Chiptune

Why is this at 115? This should at least be at 30. - LargeDemon

This genre needs more love! - drdevil

63 Video Game

Video game music is extremely underrated. A lot of people (who have never actually played a video game) think it's just a bunch of beeps and boops and rumbles. But video game music is pretty much just like a mix between electronic and classical. Check out a lot of good video game soundtracks like Legend of Zelda, Undertale, and Portal. - Mooshroomsrock17

64 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.

65 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.

66 Garage Rock

Mudhoney and the Black Keys are good.

67 Industrial Metal V 1 Comment
68 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.

69 Alternative Hip Hop

Rap music that is art

70 Speed Metal

Speed Metal is Thrash/Death/Black and all their subgenre's root!
So it's pretty awesome!

71 Orchestral
72 Soundtrack

Soundtracks, or so-called "movie trailer music" or "epic music," should definitely rank in the top tens. It has the power of the orchestra and a distinct melody all within the timeframe of a couple minutes. Think of all the movies you have watched and a couple of great soundtracks.

Epic music is by far the most underrated genere

Do you hear that? Yes, it's the vocals taking a backseat. There is no autotune, no crappy lyrics about sex and drugs here. Just sit back and let this genre take you to a different world each time.

WARNING: Listening to this or, if you're lucky, actually playing these songs may negatively change your view of every other genre. The only negative effect is groaning loudly when a pop song starts playing.

73 West Coast Hip Hop

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

74 Hardcore Punk

Dude...hardcore has got to be higher than that, that's disappointing, bands like Bad Religion, NOFX, Black Flag, and so much more have paved the way for so many other genres...where do you think the "core" in metalcore/deathcore comes from? Bands like Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God, Avenged Sevenfold, Thy Art Is Murder, etc. Have all derived the breakdown in most metal hardcore genres because of hardcore punk

A more abrasive, faster and aggressive version of Punk Rock. In addition, a lot of bands and music genres take several odes from Hardcore Punk.

Alternative Rock, Thrash Metal, Grunge, Screamo, Death Metal, Ska Punk, Noise Rock, Black Metal and Metalcore are all influenced and have elements based on Hardcore Punk. While not the best, one cannot deny the influence it had.

Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, Linkin Park, Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Evanescance, Sum 41, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Trivium, Death, Opeth, Mayhem, Gorgoroth and so many others can be traced back to Hardcore Punk in a way. Its almost unbelievable... - CrimsonShark

75 Country Pop

TAKE THIS OFF THE LIST AND PUT ASIAN POP ON THIS LIST, OR DIE! >8(

76 Classic R&B
77 Experimental
78 Boom Bap
79 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 not just the mainstream trap. There is also calmer, more melodic versions that cover more emotion.

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 just awesome no commentary

80 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
