Top Ten Best Music Genre Combinations

There are plenty of music genres, but some go really well together. Let's take a look at some. And most of the items have classical music in there because it goes with just about everything.

The Top Ten

Classical and Metal

Nah... Symphonic Metal and Neoclassical Metal are both pretty cheesy. Mostly because of the former's over-focus on whiny vocals while the latter's over-focus on showcasing technical skills as much as possible.

Yes! This is awesome - symphonic metal exists and I love it. Can't get enough of Blind Guardian's 2015 album!
Actually every metal subgenre goes well with classical - thrash, prog, death, black, power metal...
It's because metal music is based on classical. You didn't know that? No problem, now you know.

In my humble opinion a band mixing classical and metal music is just trying to hard and it comes off as pretentious. I'm not saying that I think all bands associated with both classical and metal are like this, but still...

I'm very happy to see this at #1. Symphonic Metal is Classical music designed for headbanging! Plus, it's the genre of my favorite band, Nightwish!

Classical and Rock
Rock and Electronic

There are a good amount of industrial bands and bands of other genres that mix rock and metal and are good at it.

Maybe some types of rock but not all. I can't imagine hard rock with electronic. ACDC and electronic? No.

Oops. I voted on my own list accidentally. :/

It didn't work out for The Rolling Stones.

Classical and Electronic

I've always thought of how this would work.

Classical and Dubstep

Like what Lindsay Stirling does? I love her music!

Rap and Rock

This is usually horrible, (see: Linkin Park, limp bizkit) but I love me some Rage Against the Machine!

Limp Bizkit sucks but if you want some good Rap-Rock listen to Linkin Park,Rage Against The Machine or Hollywood Undead.-LitSavage

In the End by Linkin Park my 6th favourite Song.

This is a terrible combination.

Folk and Metal

Folk Metal already exists.

So folk is like loving and sadness while metal in the other hand is crazy imagine folk with metal music it’d be nice

Pop and Electronic

Most pop music has electronic influences, but unfortunately, the pop artists abuse electronic most of the time.

Trance and Progressive House
Jazz and Electronic

I was introduced to this by our very own P.Wildhawk. It's really rather good.

I love both therefore I like the combination

The Contenders

Rap and Electronic

If the rap part is executed well, and doesn't take up a majority of the song, it can work.

Industrial and Rock
Hard Rock and Alternative Rock

Best Genre Combination ever.

Metal and Jazz

Interesting

Heavy Metal and Techno
Pop and Metal
Punk Rock and Heavy Metal
Classical and Jazz

How was this not on the list yet? Gershwin, Oleg Lundstrem or Debussy's Minstrels?

Opera and Hip Hop

That would sound interesting

Hard Rock and Folk Rock
Hard Rock and Indie Rock
Jazz and Progressive Rock
Chillout and Dubstep
Country and Rock
