Top 10 Favorite Music Genres of Your Parents

This list is supposed to be like a small survey. Some people tend to like the music genres of their parents, some - don't.
My original remix doesn't represent the favorite music genres of my parents because I didn't make this list for myself. It is a combination of the most popular genres because I wanted to make voting and remixing easier.
You can add genres and subgenres that describe your parents' music taste better. You can tell us whether the music you like is similar to your parents' favorite music or not. You can share if your parents like the same or different genres.
