7 Hip-Hop Hip-Hop
8 Pop
9 Dubstep

Dubstep is a genre that is NOT that easy to hate but I only know 4 people who like dubstep. A person said dubstep is like rock. In 2012, I think that was its special year. In dubstep, the beats first sound like a sweat pop sound but after, its sound like a person is swinging a light saver and the pitch gets high then low. I CAN NOT EVEN believe THAT DUBSTEP IS EVEN ON! Dubstep is the best genre that I ever heard.
