The Top Ten

Dubstep is good if executed properly. - RiverClanRocks

Full of energy, amazing genre for craziness. - sahil97

Dubstep makes my day

I agree with RiverClanRocks. Melodic dubstep is great because there is emotion and depth.

2 Teen Pop

Unfortunately, most teen pop is generic. There can be decent production, but lyrics and melodies often turn out to be unoriginal and repetitive.

Why do I feel this list is all wrong? - AGK

Because people like myself need to stand up to materialistic scum. - AGK

Rock and metal music actually have meaning to it and teens should listen to something they can relate to and rock out to.

3 Dream Pop

Dream Pop is actually alternate rock, but it can have a pop based sound, but then Cuddlecore is the same, a very pop orientated sound but it is really a rock subgenre. - DJSchollen

I stand corrected, DJSchollen is right on the fact that dream pop is a subgenre of alternate rock.

What is this?... - RiverClanRocks

Dream pop is pop, but more atmospheric, usually more darker and mature. At the very least, I prefer this type of pop over mainstream, generic bubblegum pop. Think Halsey, Troye Sivan, etc.

4 Pop Punk
5 Hip Hop

Hip hop is the best kind of music and that's that

Hip-Hop is a culture - MLGPoossySlayer6969

"Hip-hop" barely qualifies as music, at all.

What is this list *facepalm* - 2234

6 Emo Rock

I love emo music, like heavy metal and screamos and stuff like that X)

7 Punk Rock Punk Rock Punk rock is a subgenre of rock music. It usually has rebellious lyrics and down stroked power chords played on guitars. Bad Religion, Sex Pistols, and Green Day (actually pop-punk, which is still punk in a way) are a few punk rock bands. The subgenre influenced thrash metal because of it's down stroked more.
8 Heavy Metal Heavy Metal Heavy Metal music is a sub-genre of rock music that originated in the late 1960s-70s, featuring more distorted and heavier instrumental work and darker lyrical themes. Heavy Metal broke into mainstream success with bands such as Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Metallica. more.

I was already listening to Death Metal at 14. - RogerMcBaloney

I started listening to metal since I was 14 lol

This is what I like. - RiverClanRocks

I started at 11-12 so I guess metal is OK for 14-year-olds, too. My fave genre to this day! - Metal_Treasure
