Top Ten Best Music Genres

81 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.

82 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

83 Ska

How is this so low? I understand its not going to get the same love as say classic rock, but that being said it still destroys more than half the genres list (and that's being modest). honestly why does no one remember two-tone in the late 80s or at least third wave from the 90s. with bands like streetlight manifesto, MU330, mustard plug, the mighty mighty bosstones, the specials and madness in their arsenal I at least know where my vote is being cast.

I couldn't choose between Jazz and Ska but I ended up here so I guess I made my choice. The Specials, Selector, Bad Manners and Madness. If you want something with a catchy beat and not too much singing, Ska sounds great in the summer. English Ska sounds the best. - Britgirl

Since there's no Ska Punk on this list, I'll vote for ska. If you ever feel down, look for a ska song (any at all) and in a matter of minutes you feel all happy again. Ska may not be the very best genre ever, but it should be way up in the top 10. - standelange

Ska is the best music genre

84 Ragtime

Ragtime - playing on and around the beat to create syncopation and reinforce the sense of rhythm, thus creating a ragged time signature.

Scott Joplin was gifted at piano

A rival to classical music

COMPLETELY IGNORED, APPRECIATED, RESPECTED, UNDERRATED AN UNDERSTOOD.

85 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.

86 K Pop

I like to listen kpop when I want to throw up

WHAT?! NO! K-Pop deserves to be in the top 10! Are these people forgetting about Girls' Generation, SHINee, Exo, Big Bang, Super Junior, Infinite, 2NE1, F.T Island, U-KISS and the best of course, BTS! I am an ARMY forever! VOTE FOR K-POP! Someone call the doctor it's an anger overdose

Kpop is just the definition of amazing and should be on the 10 top

Best genre ever

87 Neoclassical Darkwave
88 Indie Pop

It's outside-the-box pop. I am a jazz musician, and I listen to a wide variety of genres, including hip hop, classical, funk, etc, but I do find myself really drawn to indie pop, because it's energetic and powerful but it still has original and organic meanings to it. A lot of times, the people who play it have more interesting stories to tell, too.

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!

A great genre, SWITCH PLACES WITH POP RIGHT NOW! Basically, it's an underground, underrated form of DIY pop. If you like pop but think the lyrics should be better, no autotune, and more deep, then Lorde, Lana Del Ray, Ellie Golding, Marina and The Diamonds, Tove Lo. Or their is Charlie XCX for all you sheep.

89 Chillstep

Are you serious? 66 for Chillstep? This music is amazing! I can't believe gangsta rap and emo punk garbage is rated higher!

Emo is not garbage, and neither is punk.

90 Contemporary Country
91 Electro Rock
92 Electrorap
93 Symphonic Metal

No way in the world should symphonic metal be so low. Have you ever heard Nightwish? They are my favorite band in the world! Their lyrics are awe-inspiring, and their music is phenomenal. I refuse to believe that symphonic metal is hated this much in the world. Seriously, if you are looking for a genre of music that actually has bands that are talented, and not using computers to modify their music, symphonic metal is perfect! This should be in the number 1 spot. It definitely is in my world. By the way, I've been a symphonic metal and Nightwish fan since I was 6 years old. First heard Storytime, from Nightwish, and was instantly hooked. But I can't believe no one likes this amazing genre of music.

Why the hell is the best genre in the bottom spot? I'm not accepting this impulsive decision!

This is classic and metal together!

94 Contemporary Christian
95 Alternative Hip Hop

100 Post-Hardcore

Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate, The Used, Upon This Dawning, For All Those Sleeping, Sleeping With Sirens, Pierce The Veil, Secrets, Asking Alexandria, A Skylit Drive, Yashin, Make Me Famous, Her Bright Skies, Palisades, Woe, Is Me, Issues, Ice Nine Kills, That's Outrageous!, Of Mice & Men, Attack Attack!, We Came As Romans, Sent By Ravens, Adept, La Dispute, Hopes Die Last, Eyes Set To Kill, Memphis May Fire, Close To Home, A Day To Remember, Modern Day Escape, Dead Rabbits...

Really post hardcore is this low on the list? It breaks the barrier between pop punk and metal (Most bands) Combining screams with singing. It's a great genre.

One of the most emotionally deep genres I've listened to. There's a lot of analogy usage, letting the music be interpreted in tons of ways. That's one of the main reasons it's my favorite music genre. Ex: Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon, Get Scared, etc.

Post hardcore doesn't deserve to be this high. Hardcore punk (first wave) is amazing. I don't know why this genre is higher then hardcore punk. - Powerfultekin
