The Contenders: Page 7

121 Trance Dubstep

EXAMPLE: Principalities - Alex S.

122 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

123 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

124 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

We all need some ambient music

125 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

126 Dream Pop
127 Hip Hop Soul
128 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.

129 Vaporwave

A beautiful satire of consumerism while still being entrancing. Makes me nostalgic for an era I wasn't even alive during. - unvulturedswine

Vaporwave will probably see an increasing level of popularity as technology advances. Vaporwave mixes synthesized samplings of 80's music usually backed by purposefully bad abstract art and AOL broadband romanticisim.

It's all about the aesthetics.

Sad that its only at 155

130 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.

131 Post-Grunge

I wish more people would scroll all the way down before voting. Guys, this genres includes bands like The Foo Fighters, Breaking Benjamin, Skillet, Three Days Grace, Red, etc. There's no reason for it to be this low!

Post grunge is 48? Three days grace? Breaking Benjamin? There rated this bad? This should be up there with heaven metal

There is a reason this genre be so low... I mean if you're talking about breaking benjamin it also falls in alternative rock which is at top 5. so can't complain...

132 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

133 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! "

135 Electro-Industrial
136 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

137 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.

138 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.

139 Krautrock

The mixture between progressive & experimental rock elements makes this genre a necessity for anyone who wants an out-of-body experience.

I CAN write a comment but nothing CAN explain my love to songs like Yoo Doo Right, Halleluwah etc.

140 Blackened Thrash Metal
