Top Ten Best Music Genre CombinationsThere are plenty of music genres, but some go really well together. Let's take a look at some. And most of the items have classical music in there because it goes with just about everything.
Yes! This is awesome - symphonic metal exists and I love it. Can't get enough of Blind Guardian's 2015 album!
Actually every metal subgenre goes well with classical - thrash, prog, death, black, power metal...
It's because metal music is based on classical. You didn't know that? No problem, now you know.
In my humble opinion a band mixing classical and metal music is just trying to hard and it comes off as pretentious. I'm not saying that I think all bands associated with both classical and metal are like this, but still...
Nah... Symphonic Metal and Neoclassical Metal are both pretty cheesy. Mostly because of the former's over-focus on whiny vocals while the latter's over-focus on showcasing technical skills as much as possible.
I'm very happy to see this at #1. Symphonic Metal is Classical music designed for headbanging! Plus, it's the genre of my favorite band, Nightwish!
There are a good amount of industrial bands and bands of other genres that mix rock and metal and are good at it.
Maybe some types of rock but not all. I can't imagine hard rock with electronic. ACDC and electronic? No.
Oops. I voted on my own list accidentally. :/
It didn't work out for The Rolling Stones.
I've always thought of how this would work.
Isn't this new age music?
Like what Lindsay Stirling does? I love her music!
This is usually horrible, (see: Linkin Park, limp bizkit) but I love me some Rage Against the Machine!
Only works a few times. Epic by Faith No More is a good example.
Forget about Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park, listen to Beastie Boys and Rage Against the Machine to know good rap rock
This is a terrible combination.
Folk Metal already exists.
Most pop music has electronic influences, but unfortunately, the pop artists abuse electronic most of the time.
I was introduced to this by our very own P.Wildhawk. It's really rather good.
If the rap part is executed well, and doesn't take up a majority of the song, it can work.
So bands like Franz Ferdinand and White Stripes?
How was this not on the list yet? Gershwin, Oleg Lundstrem or Debussy's Minstrels?
