Top Ten Music Genres Which We Want to Become Popular In the Future

The Top Ten

1 Rock n Roll Rock music is a music genre that was created in the 1940s. The genre got popular during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Rock bands generally consists of a guitar player, a drummer, bass player and singer. There are a lot of rock subgenres.

I don't care what kind of rock it is. Progressive rock preferably but any type of rock needs to come back! I'm sick of hip hop/rap. It's so negative and inappropriate, I wish it could just go away. I don't want those boring hip hop beats, they sounded cool because of their complexity, but now they are just so boring and samey. Rock beats are unique and are done with an instrument called a DRUM SET. And rock musicians actually write their own music. It isn't all sample based. I know that some great artists like Tool, Blink-182, and Liam Gallagher have dropped some great new albums, I hope they all get acknowledged. - slipperyjack30

One of my favorite music genres. - RockFashionista

I agree, rock has never been popular. Even in the late 50s people were listening to le gay rap

2 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal is a Heavy Metal subgenre developed during the early 1980s and an early precursor of Extreme Metal. Thrash Metal features a faster and more aggressive guitar work than Traditional Metal with shredding and double-bass drums and can range from melodic singing to loud shouts. ...read more.

I hope not. I don't want the local radio stations ruining it. They would at holy wars about 30 times a day - ryanrimmel

Yes! I'd get to listen to Metallica everyday! Please drop the Music genre crap and Mop so we can listen to this! - MrQuaz680

Its already one of the most popular genres/sub-genres. - zxm

I just want it on the radio so my trip on the school bus isn't to torturous - gemcloben

3 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.

If only Tool would hurry up on the new album! - AngryByrd

Yes, because prog has never been popular

I agree. - DarkBoi-X

4 Post Grunge

Everybody forgets Puddle of Mudd they were an amazing post grunge band (not as good as Seether) but they were still awesome none the less and Nickelback is a good band but I do agree there new stuff isn't really good but anyway post grunge should get out there more it is an awesome genre and needs to be heard

By Post Grunge I mean stuff like Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, RED, Decyfer Down, Foo Fighters, and Bush. Just as long as Nickelback doesn't release anything else. - AngryByrd

Chevelle is not post grunge, they are alternative metal (There good though) I do not consider Foo Fighters as post grunge, I consider them pop rock, and there older stuff grunge

Everybody needs to buy the new breaking benjamin album! Maybe once we do that, this will happen! - AngryByrd

5 Grunge Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock and a subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s.

One Day(tear rolls down cheek)One Day - FettiMC

The early 90s never happened, right?

6 Alternative Alternative rock is a style of rock music that emerged from the independent music underground of the 1980s and became widely popular in the 1990s. In this instance, the word "alternative" refers to the genre's distinction from mainstream rock music.

It's already popular - DarkBoi-X

Well it would be nice if alternative music would get popular like it was in the 90s, but without nirvana and Kurt cobain it wouldn't be the Same! R.I.P kurt!

7 Industrial Rock

Was somewhat popular in the 90's maybe but it would be nice to see it be mainstream. - DarkBoi-X

If Stabbing Westward would make a comeback and NIN, Filter, and Device would release new albums, there might be a chance. - AngryByrd

Industrial rock? What IS THAT?!

It's electronic dance music mixed with hard rock and industrial noise. - AngryByrd

Industrial was definitely popular around the mid-90s.

8 Boom Bap

We need boom bap more than trap music or mumble rap - jameshoward

9 Country

Country music is the greatest genre ever made with singer like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Brooks and Dunn, and Rascal Flatts I can go on and on it has the most legendary singers of all time and deserves more respect in stead of people's stupid stereo types because Country music will all way's be better then any other genre weather anyone likes it are not - donovanthorn

The worst Country Music ever made is still better than any Rap.

I like this genre and I'm pretty sure anyone who is from the country or who's heart belongs to the country like mine love this genre - donovanthorn

This is probably the greatest genre of all time yet people aren't listening to it an more it's a shame cause it's a great genre

10 Jazz Jazz is a music genre that originated in the African-American communities of New Orleans, United States, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and developed from roots in blues and ragtime. Jazz is seen by many as "America's classical music".

The original jazz music is, I think the best jazz genre there is and will be. It's can be swinging or with more emotions. It's beautiful and a lot of people like it nowadays and I think this will grow to another peak over the years. I hope so.

The Contenders

11 Industrial
12 Lo-Fi Hip Hop

The whole chill/jazzy aesthetic has been becoming more popular in the late 2010's so it would be cool if radio stations played chill-hop tracks.

Great genre - Luckys

23 Post-Punk
24 Nu Metal
25 Emo

I'm pretty sure emo is coming back. I just hope its emo rock/pop and not emo rap that's coming. And I don't have a problem if it is emo rock cause it's a genre that's actually good. - slipperyjack30

Not Poser Emo again at least. - Soulstealer

HAHA no. - BlueTelegraph

I miss the rap rock days of Rage Against the Machine.

Cage the elephant is an amazing rap rock/ alternative band. - Songsta41

27 Blues Blues is a music genre and musical form originated by African Americans in the Deep South of the United States around the end of the 19th century.

I'm not really that bothered if Blues doesn't get more popular. I like that it's specialised music. I don't follow what's popular just because it's, well, popular. I just wish people who aren't familiar with this genre would stop judging it before actually taking the time to listen. It's what I did. I'm just so happy I was finally introduced properly to Blues and other related genres that will stay with me for the rest of my life. - Britgirl

28 Soul Soul music (often referred to simply as soul) is a popular music genre that originated in the African American community in the United States in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It combines elements of African-American gospel music, rhythm and blues and jazz.
29 Eurodance

32 New Jack Swing
33 New Wave
34 Trance
35 Seapunk
36 Electro Swing

Hey! It's 2020 now! BRING BACK SWING!

Most of these genres are already well known. Chillstep, however, isn't. And it is wonderful. - PositronWildhawk

39 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 ...read more.

I'm not sure if popular is the right term but a larger amount of bands like Bad Religion or NOFX and more people who know about the genre beyond Green Day would be nice.
