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 Best Music Genre Combinations

1 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. - Joeljohns249

Classical is metal before electricity. - maverick88

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. - Metal_Treasure

I'm not interested in Black Metal but for some reason I like Symphonic Black Metal - SirSkeletorThe3rd

2 Classical and Rock
3 Rock and Electronic

I have only two words: DEPECHE MODE. - IronSabbathPriest

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

Three words: Nine Inch Nails.

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

4 Classical and Electronic

I've always thought of how this would work.

5 Classical and Dubstep

Like what Lindsay Stirling does? I love her music! - Pegasister12

6 Rap and Rock

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

Forget about Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park, listen to Beastie Boys and Rage Against the Machine to know good rap rock - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

In the End by Linkin Park my 6th favourite Song. - PatrickStar3

Thousand Foot Krutch is the best! - LarkwingFlight

7 Folk and Metal

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

Folk Metal already exists.

Ensiferum! - Brobusky

8 Pop and Electronic

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

9 Trance and Progressive House
10 Industrial and Rock

The Contenders

11 Jazz and Electronic

I love both therefore I like the combination

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

12 Rap and Electronic

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

13 Metal and Jazz


14 Hard Rock and Alternative Rock

Best Genre Combination ever. - Soulstealer

15 Heavy Metal and Techno
16 Pop and Metal
17 Punk Rock and Heavy Metal
18 Classical and Jazz

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

19 Opera and Hip Hop

That would sound interesting

20 Hard Rock and Folk Rock
21 Hard Rock and Indie Rock
22 Jazz and Progressive Rock
23 Chillout and Dubstep
24 Jazz and Funk

Acid jazz? - Alkadikce

25 Melodic Death Metal and Progressive Death Metal
26 Jazz and Technical Thrash Metal
27 Country and Rock


28 Jazz and Rock
29 Soft Rock and Hard Rock
30 Acoustic Rock and Heavy Metal
31 Blues and Hard Rock
32 Death Metal and Doom Metal
33 Rock and Pop

Pop Rock's already a thing and most of the time it's done horribly (Maroon 5, Coldplay, Fall Out Boy etc.) maybe if it's done better then maybe...

Like The Script! - SamuiNeko

34 Techno and EDM
35 Metal and Electronic

Not really... - Metal_Treasure

36 Industrial and Metal
37 Glitch and Dubstep

Almost the same genre, so they go great together! - AsteroidCat

38 Hard Rock and Glam Metal

Two words... Bon Jovi - Draco

Glam Metal is a very misleading notion because it's not really metal. The so called 'glam metal' is actually Glam Hard Rock - it’s the glam/pop version of hard rock.
So Bon Jovi is a successful combination of hard rock and glam rock (there's no metal in that). - Metal_Treasure

39 Metal and Dubstep

But didn't Korn already do that? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

40 Indie and Pop

Indie isn't a music genre - 'indie' describes artists from any genre who release their music independently (so independent is shortened to indie). These are music artists who are not signed to major labels.

Usually indie artists are not pop or mainstream. - Metal_Treasure

41 Chiptune and Glitch
42 Industrial and Dubstep
43 Ethnic and Jazz
44 Trance and Rap
45 Alternative and Electronic
46 Folk and Rock
47 Pop and Death Metal

I remember Amaranthe combining Eurodance and Pop elements with power metal and death growls.

48 Rock and EDM

Listen to Zedds Transmission to know what I mean

49 Country and Alternative Rock
50 Punk Rock and Classical
