Top Ten Genres that Certain Music Artists Should Never Try to Do


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blues - Blind Guardian Blues - Blind Guardian

Can a power metal band switch to blues? This would be the most interesting blues ever... - Lucretia

22 Pop - Cannibal Corpse

This wouldn't work but it would be hilarious to see this - christangrant


23 Gospel - Mayhem

Mayhem is anti christ they would never

That's ironic.

24 Gospel - Eminem

Can I get a no? - Sop

25 Nu Metal - Slayer

Slayer tried to infuse some Nu Metal influences in Diabolus in Musica. Yep, Slayer did make a few songs that are debatably Nu Metal in that album. No wonder why that album is considered mediocre. At least they went back to their roots in God Hates Us All... - CrimsonShark

26 Pop - Slipknot

Corey Taylor could easily make a ballad or a soft song. If he wanted to, he would probably make a great Pop song. Just not with Slipknot though. - CrimsonShark

I actually want this to happen for some reason - wrests

With Stone Sour he might be able to, it might be a little strange though. - EliHbk

27 Children's Music - Rings Of Saturn
28 Bubblegum Pop - Behemoth

YES! I want to see Nergal trying to wow kids, metalheads and tweens with Bubblegum Pop. - CrimsonShark

29 Teen Pop - Judas Priest

Rob Halford has one of the best heavy metal voices ever, so I won't be happy if this happens, because one major characteristic of Teen Pop is auto-tuned vocal, and Auto-Tune ruins your voice. - Kiyomi

30 Nu Metal - Iron Maiden

I don't dislike Nu Metal, but I'm sure this isn't going to work out.
I love Iron Maidens guitar solo's and I don't want to have them removed. - Kiyomi

31 Pop Rap - Metallica

Imagine James Hetfield rapping poppy lyrics on a poppy beat - Kiyomi

32 Trance - Taylor Swift

To be honest I think this could actually somewhat work - wrests

33 Dubstep - Beyoncé
34 Electronic Dance Music - Dying Fetus

No explanation.

35 Teen Pop - Joanne Shaw Taylor
36 Teen Pop - Megadeth

Dave Mustaine trying to score the "tween" demographic would be a fixture for an upcoming meme :p. Then again, his voice isn't going to impress any :/. - CrimsonShark

37 Speed Metal - Jacob Sartorius
38 Death Metal Metal - Jacob Sartorius

Death metal metal?

39 Black Metal - Jacob Sartorius
40 Progressive Metal - Jacob Sartorius
