Top 10 Music Genres You Respect Without Being a Fan
The Top Ten
Good music here. This genre will give you what is the meaning of that "old school" thing and relax. I do really enjoy jazz especially if it's so old and so 50's
I didn't expect to find Jazz here. Thank you for adding it. It's my life and I appreciate it's not the most popular genre on this site.
I'm not an avid fan--although I do really enjoy cool jazz--but the musicianship is incredible.
Jazz helped my mom study and graduate from college.
Regardless whether you like it or not, you can't deny the complexity and the influence it had in history
It's strange how classical music fans never call themselves "fans" with a few exceptions.
I'm a fan of classical music... also some pop & some rock.
My second most favorite music genre
I respect genres that take a lot of talent and are not easy to make.
Everyone has to respect the difficulty of opera
Without rock, a lot of the artists you hear today wouldn't even be here.
My favorite genre
Yeah, I do respect rock.
I love rock and punk a lot okay I'm glad I'm not a jusin beatal fan okay
I do respect it and I also love a subgenre that is close to it - Symphonic Metal.
Well, Symphonic Metal is my favorite! :D
Almost Every non-metalhead condemnes the genre. They don't understand it and think screaming is equal to nonsense ( most of them don't even know there is also clean singing in metal )
I feel this might be a little high. Metal is one of the most condemned genres of music. To the majority of non metal listeners, anything too different from iron maiden or Metallica is "worthless noise".
I don't really listen to metal, but I do admire some of the meaningful things that have come out of it.
Well, I'm a fan but I added this for other people who are not fans but may think metal deserves more respect for its complexity and talented virtuoso musicians.
Come on, you can't deny that metal guitarists and drummers do mindblowing things at really high speed. Besides, more and more metal singers have qualities of opera singers - many of them are even classically trained.
Blues is good.
Jackie Evancho sings classical crossover. My point here is:
1) Jackie Evancho is immensely talented
2) it's better to listen to Jackie Evancho than to N. Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Rebecca Black, Britney Spears, to name a few.
I like classical crossover but I prefer it sung by an extremely good male voice.
Wait. I’m a fan of this genre because Clean Bandit make it.
My orchestra days have given me both a love and dread for chamber music. I'm also proud to say I have the sheet music for the Gravity Falls theme song and it sounds pretty awesome with a chamber group.
I'm sorry...I'm sorry! I just can't like this. I've heard twenty seconds of this genre. It's twenty seconds of my life I'll never get back.
I think you might be confusing chamber music (classical composed for a small group of instruments) with house music.
Come on, Britgirl, this isn't THAT bad...
Art rock is a subgenre of rock music with influences from art music (avant-garde and classical).
I'm a huge fan, but I feel the genre as a whole is underappreciated.
I guess I do respect gospel music.
I hate country. If you change the radio station to country, a few things might happen to you:
I slap you and tell you to change the station
I will change the station again and yell at you
I will assume that you want to troll me and will kick you out of the car/house
Even the worst country music is still better than the best rap ever made.
Pretty funny that as of December 12, 2015, nobody has even nominated Rap as something they respect even a little bit!
I have no respect for garbage.
As a rock fan myself, I decided to try listening to more rap other than just the horrible modern mainstream stuff. Now, I still can't say that I'm a fan, but I respect rap more, and I do like some rap songs.
Nobody had bothered to add this until it was pointed out.
Think about if any rapper is more repsected than Johnny Cash- the answer is no.
Put this to #1!
I respect it
I am a fan
Thanks Britgirl - I forgot about the Irish folk but I actually like it. The Lord of the Dance (Michael Flatley) is something incredible. Of course I also like the song Whiskey In The Jar - I prefer Metallica version but Thin Lizzy and the original are also cool.
