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


The Top Ten

1 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal Thrash metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression. The songs usually use fast percussive beats and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work.The genre evolved in the early 1980s from combining the fast drum beats 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

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

2 Rock n Roll Rock n Roll Rock music is a music genre that was created in the 1950s . The genre really got popular in the 60s, 70s and 80s . It generally consists of a guitar player, a drummer, bass player and singer . There are a lot of rock subgenres .

One of my favorite music genres. - RockFashionista

3 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 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

6 Alternative Alternative

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 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

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

Who remembers when country was somewhat popular back in 2009? Somehow, country seemed to decline in recent years, probably due to Taylor Swift's move away from country (she was like, country's biggest star), and country having a bad rep for being formulaic (I don't care, but some people do).

But there has GOT to be someone who can fill Taylor's empty shoes. Somebody has got to create awesome, somewhat pop-sounding country songs (while keeping the banjo, pedal steel, and acoustic drums), market them as both country songs and pop songs, and have a loyal fan base around the globe! Someone's got to do it! And when people who listen to them discover that what they're listening to is country, they might try and check out other country stuff, thus supporting the country music industry! Then comes the upward spiral! Let's see it happen! We might even get singers from around the globe putting out country in different languages, increasing the genre's popularity even more!

11 Blues Blues
12 Pop Metal

Isn't it same as glam metal? But anyway, glam metal artists are very popular. But I don't think people now are interested in glam metal like the 80s. - zxm

Kinda like... Uh... Dunno, but I think it'd be cool if it weren't about butts. - AnonymousChick

13 Chillstep

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

15 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.

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.

This, definitely. Hope more bands like All Time Low come up in the future. - GinSan

Oh please, please. The best genre on earth! - ToptenPizza

Wow this genre is so stopid I hate it don't listen to it

16 Symphonic Metal

OPETH really should be more popular! - AngryByrd

Blind Guardian, too - their 2015 album is amazing. - Metal_Treasure

17 Reggaeton
18 Ska Punk

Bands like sublime, rancid, streetlight manifesto and the mighty mighty bosstones. What a great genre

This is sublime type music

19 Britpop Britpop Britpop is a UK based music and culture movement in the mid 1990s which emphasised "Britishness", and produced bright, catchy pop music partly in reaction to the US led grunge music and the UK's own shoegazing music scene.
