Top Ten Best Music Genres

161 Ska

How is this so low? I understand its not going to get the same love as say classic rock, but that being said it still destroys more than half the genres list (and that's being modest). honestly why does no one remember two-tone in the late 80s or at least third wave from the 90s. with bands like streetlight manifesto, MU330, mustard plug, the mighty mighty bosstones, the specials and madness in their arsenal I at least know where my vote is being cast.

I couldn't choose between Jazz and Ska but I ended up here so I guess I made my choice. The Specials, Selector, Bad Manners and Madness. If you want something with a catchy beat and not too much singing, Ska sounds great in the summer. English Ska sounds the best. - Britgirl

Since there's no Ska Punk on this list, I'll vote for ska. If you ever feel down, look for a ska song (any at all) and in a matter of minutes you feel all happy again. Ska may not be the very best genre ever, but it should be way up in the top 10. - standelange

Ska is the best music genre

162 Dancehall

Best from jamaica

163 Brostep

Not only is Brostep the greatest musical genre it's the greatest art form.

164 Slamming Brutal Death Metal

There are some good bands in this genre such as Crepitation, Guttural Slug, Gastrorrexis, The Dark Prison Massacre, etc. It's just disliked amongst death metal fans like myself who think the vocals are "too weak".

165 Visual Kei

Visual Kei is the genre that brings the most emotion out in my case. I also think Japanese is the most beautiful language ever. Few people like visual kei, so I'm happy to see it on this list. I'm going to vote even if nobody cares. This genre is the best mix of melodic and heavy elements, combined with singer's that sings with their heart. Versailles, Girugamesh, Born, Screw, NoGod...

166 Folk Punk

How is this so low? Folk-punk is such a real and raw form of music that actually shows real character. All of Pat The Bunny's bands (ramshackle glory, wingnut dishwasher's union, and johnny hobo) are fantastic. Other good artists include ghost mice, andrew jackson jihad, and 37 cents.

I don't want this to fall below djent

Love it,2nd best to punk folk.Like ajj

167 Grindcore

I'm glad to see this is almost at the bottom of the list. This is honestly the worst kind of music, even worse than pop. It's superviolent, extremely heavy, and the lyrics are mostly just screaming and growling. Horrible music.

World will never live without metal rock rap other

I think this is more extreme than Death Metal!

Most brutal and fun genre ever.

168 Post Avant Jazzcore

Progressive dream funk is better than Post-Avant Jazzcore.

Post-Avant Jazzcore is better than Progressive Dreamfunk. Don't believe me? Listen to the D******* Brigade, you'll see what I mean.

Post avant jazzcore is better than pre-apocalyptic dreamfunk

Never heard it before, I just like the number 100

170 Djent

Djent is the best! True abilities of musicians come out with djent! Oh, the riffs, the odd time signatures, the djent sound, I LOVE IT ALL! TesseracT, Periphery, Meshuggah, Animals As Leaders, Vildhjarta and many more...my favorites. I'm wondering why djent is down here...

Tesseract, Plini, Animals as leaders... for the Love of Djent I vote here

171 Breakcore

At least it's here love it.

A really cool genre. Takes some listening to get used to, though. My recommendations are Reizoko Cj and LOLI RIPE.

172 Trip Hop

Best genre of the 90's, pure and simple.

Super good vibe! Thievery corparation!

173 Vocaloid

Vocaloid itself is music software. It's sold as a voice for producers who can't sing and can't find a singer. It's sold as "a singer in a box" Now that you know what it is we can discus. One of the best things about Vocaloid is it's range of meanings and range of genres. From the light pop sound of Sweet Magic to Hakaine Maiko singing screamo in Rebound. From the energetic and upbeat Tell Your World to the serene and beautiful Night Cruise to the dark a twisted Hitobashira Arisu. (Alice Human Sacrifice) Any human emotional imaginable has been turned into a song. Most of the quality songs are in Japanese. The reason I love Vocaloid is because when l listen to Someone Like You by Adele I don't feel very much. It's a break up song, and I myself have never been in a relationship. So it makes sense I wouldn't relate much. But when I heard Megurine Luka (A Specific Vocaloid. Portrayed as a woman in her early twenties with pink hair. She has a much softer voice compared to other ...more

Vocaloid is not a genre. It's a mix of multigenres generated by a piece or pieces of software. For example Hatsune Miku can sing J-pop, hip-hop, EDM, Techno, and many other genres. Or to simplify what I said. Vocaloid is a piece of software that is to - Crysis

To finish what I was typing, I said that Vocaloid is a piece of software used to create or sing songs generated by a user. - Crysis

174 Progressive Vegetarian Grindcore

Is this heavy metal made by vegetarians about veggie burgers or something? - RiverClanRocks

I love rocking out whilst eating my Veggie burger!

It's Progressive Grindcore but organic!

Wasn't Cattle Decapitation labeled as this even though they're deathgrind?
