Rock is King even if ti gets drowned out by todays Rap & Pop Rock is still The Best! - Curti2594

A band with a lead vocalist, guitarists and a percussionist is all you need. Not easy, but worth it. Who could deny some of their genius lyrics, upbeating chords and else? Even if people listen to other music nowadays and this isn't the 21st Centuries anymore, we still stick to the old days. - TheRegular1227

This is the most screwed up list in history... HOW IS RAP, COUNTRY AND RB IN THE TOP 3! @paasadani, I don't agree with this list at all.

2 Groove Metal
3 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal Thrash Metal is a Heavy Metal subgenre developed during the early 1980s and an early precursor of Extreme Metal. Thrash Metal features a faster and more aggressive guitar work than Traditional Metal with shredding and double-bass drums and can range from melodic singing to loud shouts. more.
4 Metal

All mainstream music getting the top ranks. Give metal the first place. - Kiteretsunu

5 Electronic

Electronic should exchange it's place with R&B. - Kiteretsunu

Electronic is what I shall always vote for. Country and rap even being on this list, let alone in top positions, is simply obscene. - PositronWildhawk

Country is the WORST music genre there is! Rap is awesome! But as far as coolness, I have to go with Electronic. - letdot52

6 Classical

Why is rap #1? Classical is timeless and will be loved forever. Eventually people will stop liking rap.

It's may no use for people to listen to some mindless music (Except for Country and Rock, some of them are brilliant), but we still stick to the classics. - TheRegular1227

7 Country

Country is the best one. Better than the Rock and metal. Country music makes you cool. Its TRUE!

Why Country is down here. Country music wow I love that music!.

Why does rap have the same percent as country but country is 3 times better - linksysf

I love country. that's all I listen too - cheyeanne
