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. - 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

Classical and Rock
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

Classical and Electronic

I've always thought of how this would work.

Classical and Dubstep

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

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

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

Pop and Electronic

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

Trance and Progressive House
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

The Contenders

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