Top Ten Music Genres That Deserve More Attention


The Top Ten

1 Progressive Rock Progressive Rock Progressive rock is a broad genre of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and United States throughout the mid to late 1960s.

Holy S$! T I LOVE prog rock. With such FANTASTIC bands such as Pink Floyd, Rush ( one of my favorite bands ever! ) and many more, I can't really say much about it ( you have to listen yourselves, it's that good! ) Also, Dream Theater isn't prog rock, but in fact PROGRESSIVE METAL. So yea, they're not really the same thing. - MusicalPony

2 Country

For those who know me well, you might be asking " Isn't Country your least favorite genre? ". True, but I'm talking about "Bro-Country". REAL country music, such as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, should be played on the radio. Not that "bro-country" crap. - MusicalPony

3 Ambient

Most people haven't heard of this one actually. - MusicalPony

4 Krautrock

Highly underrated. I reccommend a song or two. - MusicalPony

5 Progressive Metal

Don't complain that Prog Metal and Prog Rock are the same thing. Prog metal is a METAL sub genre, not a rock genre. Just saying. - MusicalPony

6 Electronic

The truth is, not everyone sees the innovation and thought-provoking meanings that go into quite a lot of it. - PositronWildhawk

Depends.Thereare many popular genres of EDM like House,Trance and Dubstep which are good but there is also stuff like Drum&Bass,Synthpop and Electronic Rock which I think need more attention.-LitSavage

7 Psychobilly

A unique blend of rockabilly and hardcore punk ( I think). - MusicalPony

8 Jazz Jazz

Pretty underrated if you ask me. - MusicalPony

9 New Wave

I love this genre but not too many people my age listen to New Wave. - MusicalPony

10 Trance

The Contenders

11 Drum n' Bass
12 Classical Classical

Now, classical music is not listened to enough. Classical music is awesome. I know you like pop, but now after a lot, your engine might get high. For a change, listen to classical music, like Massanet's Meditation from thais or Dvorak 2nd movement from the new world symphony.

13 Psychedelic Rock Psychedelic Rock
14 Chillstep

A very talented and haunting genre, which nobody seems to appreciate. - PositronWildhawk

15 Reggaeton

No way, this does not deserve attention.

16 Industrial Rock

Sort of like rock music but with more electronic elements to it. It's very rare and doesn't really get that much appreciation. You should check it out. It's really cool. I recommend checking out bands like Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, or Rammstein.

17 Symphonic Metal
18 Industrial Metal

Same as Industrial Rock. Just metal with electronic beats.

19 New Age
20 Folk Metal Folk Metal Folk metal is a fusion genre of heavy metal music and traditional folk music that developed in Europe during the 1990s.
21 Chiptune
22 Stoner Rock
23 Bubblegum Dance Bubblegum Dance
