Top Ten Best Music Genre CombinationsThere 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
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
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
I've always thought of how this would work.
Like what Lindsay Stirling does? I love her music! - Pegasister12
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
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
Most pop music has electronic influences, but unfortunately, the pop artists abuse electronic most of the time. - RiverClanRocks
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
If the rap part is executed well, and doesn't take up a majority of the song, it can work. - RiverClanRocks
Best Genre Combination ever. - Soulstealer
How was this not on the list yet? Gershwin, Oleg Lundstrem or Debussy's Minstrels? - Alkadikce
That would sound interesting
Acid jazz? - Alkadikce
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
Not really... - Metal_Treasure
Almost the same genre, so they go great together! - AsteroidCat
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
But didn't Korn already do that? - SirSkeletorThe3rd
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
I remember Amaranthe combining Eurodance and Pop elements with power metal and death growls.
Listen to Zedds Transmission to know what I mean
