122 Hip Hop Soul
123 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.

124 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

125 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

126 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

127 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! "

129 Electro-Industrial
130 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

131 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.

132 Violin Pop

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

133 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

134 Baroque Pop

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

135 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

136 Indie Folk
137 Free Jazz
138 Electronic Rock
139 New Jack Swing
140 Garage Rock

Mudhoney and the Black Keys are good.
