The Contenders: Page 6

101 Britpop

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 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

103 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

What? Deathcore at 78?
Oh come on people it should be #1
SUICIDE SILENCE ROCKS! They make real music!

104 G-Funk

Dr dre, snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, warren g, tupac, above the law, nwa etc. Ithese and loads of other g funk artists are known internationally I don't know why it hasn't got more votes

105 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

106 Speed Metal

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

107 Traditional Heavy Metal
108 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! "

109 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

110 Hardstyle

This should be one of the best because its simply represent the fast dancing in the streets such as hard-style shuffling (the original shuffling)

If this list was made in Europe, hardstyle would be top 3. This is the kind of music you wish you had at your party.

All those kids think that the top 40 charts, especially in the UK, has the best tunes to dance to. I swear if euphoric Hardstyle was released into the mainstream it could get big. Right now it's still only supported by a niche group. Either way, HARDSTYLE IS KING!

Hardstyle is my life people out of my class say rap and trap but I think it's the best

112 Electro-Industrial
113 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

I have no idea what this music even is lolz

114 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.

115 Piano Rock
116 Violin Pop

I have never heard of this, but pop is the reason why music sucks nowadays.

117 Baroque Pop

Combining the grandiose sound of classical music and the catchiness of pop. Seriously amazing.

118 Acid Rock

Just listen to Light my Fire by The Doors. People say its one of the greatest american rock songs of all time. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

119 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

120 Deep House

Okay this is easily one of the best music genres out there it has such a catchy beat and undertones that just makes you enjoy listenign to all the layers of the song its amazing its not super fast like some edm can be but isn't as slow as chill house its perfect to be honest house as a whole is amazing and I definitely think it shuld be much higher than this as I've noticed a lot of rock and metal is at the top which is far too negative and angry and just chaotic for me
