Top Ten Best Music Genres

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Britpop Britpop Britpop is a UK based music and culture movement in the mid 1990s which emphasised "Britishness", and produced bright, catchy pop music partly in reaction to the US led grunge music and the UK's own shoegazing music scene.

Blur, Elastica, Oasis, Pulp, Suede, Coldplay, Stone Roses! I love britpop it 's the best; those who don' t agree should definitely listen to this. Blur basically defined british pop music, while other bands still continue to spread their wonderful music all over the country, or in this case, all over the world.

Although I'm an Asian man, but I love this genre. and I'm enjoyed that.

Oasis,blur,pulp,the verve and many more...

102 New Age

I HATE this genre. Too quiet and peaceful for my liking! *blasts "The Divine Right of Kings" by Ingested*

This really should be higher. this music has a deeper undeniable connection to the soul and body than almost anything else.

What the hell is wrong with people. new age not in top 10. listen to songs like tichinabet-oliver shanti and new horizons-gandalf and you'll understand the power of new age music.

103 Glam Metal

Glam metal should be way higher not in the top10 but way higher than this

One of my favourite genres, along with New Wave/Synthpop/Synthwave. Music is fun and will make you happy, even if you had a bad day. Also, guitars and especially solos, they are probably the best in the whole Heavy Metal history. And the best thing is, that this genre is still alive and new songs are being released.

It's all about the 80s lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock n roll that Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, Poison, Cinderella, Skid Row and Europe depicted to name a few. The power ballads of this genre is my favourite kind of song too.

104 Speed Metal

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

105 Blackened Thrash Metal
106 Drumstep
107 Trance Dubstep

EXAMPLE: Principalities - Alex S.

108 Deathcore

Ok let me just start by saying that even though death metal shreds a little harder than most deathcore bands, but come on man, it takes the brutality of death metal and the groove that metalcore has to create a "brutal groove" and I can't listen to Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Thy Art Is Murder, Upon A Burning Body, As Blood Runs Black, Despised Icon, or any deathcore band without banging my head because it's literally what gives me the strength to go about my day without complaining about anything. This genre is what made me wanna be a vocalist

Best genre ever made. Just saying

2 words suicide silence

Greatest - Ethansics

110 Post Rock

114? You know what? Remove them from this list. Post rock doesn't deserve this. I get it, this genre is different for everyone, but they're not in the top 50 even. Please, check out a few bands in this genre. I don't have the words to describe what their music is like. Like if your heart was an instrument, and your mind was playing it, this is the music that you would create(apparently). It pains to see this down here. They don't deserve to be in this list. I mean it.

Amazing genre of music.

Post Rok at 83?!?!? You've got to be kidding me! There are so many incredible bands like Explosion in the Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Sigur Ros and the list goes on. This is real music that makes you feel.

Adding a comment here to say, while I may not have voted for Post Rock, it is art, pure art and nothing but art. Sigur Rós - Untitled 8 is just one of the many reasons why.

111 Shoegaze

Despite I really enjoy this genre at times, it's easy to see why it's low on the list. If you can get past a lot of really boring shoegaze (and there's lots), then you'll find the gold. Opinions on what is good or boring depends on the listener so I won't mention who is what. But once you do find the good shoegaze, good news: it'll be hard to go back. Like the other comment said, this is one of those genres that captures raw emotion, so you'll have to keep an open mind to REALLY enjoy it. I know I have and so this has my vote. At least give it a chance.

Captures music as a raw emotion, not even specified.

Kek this is the most cringe inducing site about anything music, shoegaze at 113 rofl

112 Flamenco

In honor of the recently passed away Paco De Lucia.R.I.P. Flamenco is one of the best genres of guitar music besides rock. It always puts you in a certain mood.

Its need a decade of practise and patience to play flamenco music.

Come on, listen to andalusian cadence, so melodically beautiful

113 Gospel

I believe Gospel music is the most popular and probably best selling out of all of the genre's because, before there was rock, pop, r&b, soul, jazz, country, etc. , Gospel music was the first! Really, if you think about it all the other genres were in a unique way was birthed from it. Why do you think that, whenever someone sings other genres of music you can hear all of the variations of vocal, and melodic styling that Gospel music possess within singing the "Good News of Jesus Christ? " The reason is Gospel music goes back well over 400 years, in other words, multiple decades of slavery and the sufferings of African Americans had to go through, while yet, in spite of their struggles and pain;found a methodical way of expressing/interpreting their emotions through songs of redemption and hope..."THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST! "

115 Lo-fi

If more people knew about this genre, it would be much more popular. Essentially hip-hop with low audio quality samples. Very 'urban' sound. Popular on SoundCloud

There's a difference between lo-fi and lo-fi hip hop. But yes, I agree. - Gruunge

I have no idea what this music even is lolz

116 Electro-Industrial
117 Polka

Polka is very very good with my favorite polka bands being weird al

Famous bands include Neutral Milk Hotel and The Radioheads (The Fridge Sessions era). It combines avant-garde Hip Hop and Post-Scaruffy core.

118 Avant-Garde

120 Folk rock
