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
1 Classical and Metal

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...

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.

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!

2 Classical and Rock
3 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.

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!

6 Rap and Rock

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

Only works a few times. Epic by Faith No More is a good example.

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

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

7 Folk and Metal

Folk Metal already exists.

8 Pop and Electronic

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

9 Trance and Progressive House
10 Jazz and Electronic

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

The Contenders
11 Rap and Electronic

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

12 Industrial and Rock
13 Hard Rock and Alternative Rock
14 Metal and Jazz
15 Heavy Metal and Techno
16 Pop and Metal
17 Punk Rock and Heavy Metal
18 Hard Rock and Folk Rock

So bands like Franz Ferdinand and White Stripes?

19 Classical and Jazz

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

20 Chillout and Dubstep
21 Opera and Hip Hop
22 Hard Rock and Indie Rock
23 Jazz and Progressive Rock
24 Melodic Death Metal and Progressive Death Metal
25 Country and Rock
