Top Ten Best Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Violin Pop

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

122 Baroque Pop

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

123 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

124 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

125 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

126 Free Jazz
127 Indie Folk
128 New Jack Swing
129 Gothic Rock Gothic Rock

A genre most people stereotype with being popular among girls. Our society needs a complete overhaul and we need to have a mandatory music class where we teach people about all music genres.

People should give this a chance
Its great. Bauhaus

I think more people would like it if they had any idea what it was. Bauhaus, Christian Death, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Souxie and the Bandshees, Virgin Prunes,etc.

130 Chiptune

Why is this at 115? This should at least be at 30. - LargeDemon

This genre needs more love! - drdevil

131 Neotraditional Country

You can't beat the classics Alabama, George Strait, Reba, Garth Brooks, etc.

132 Alternative Folk
133 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.

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.

Such an amazing and diverse genre, often pushed away for the experimental style and complexity that makes this genre great. 65daysofstatic, If These Trees Could Talk, God is an Astronaut, Mogwai. I love it for the amazing and complex soundscapes these bands often create in their music, the irregular time signatures and beauty.

Amazing genre of music.
