Top 10 Music Genres that Most Need to Be Renamed
I always considered a lot of Nu Metal bands just Modern Rock. Basically anything Hard Rock-ish to me that was new was considered Modern Rock to me. Guess now that I'm more aware of subgenres I can see the differences but nah it's all Modern Rock.
What I know for sure is that the word "metal" must be removed from its name asap.
Just call it Nu Rock!
Only metalcore and nu-metal make sense on this list, since they contain music genres in the title they have little to do with. The other ones are basically just degrading the genres. The opinion on the genres shouldn't be part of their names.
Hardcore is not metal. Metal is classical inspired.
Call it "Hard Alternative," plain and simple. In addition, that used to be the original name before it was renamed "Alternative Metal".
Furthermore, bands normally labeled as Nu Metal and Post-Grunge can also fit into Hard Alternative very well. It is mostly derived from Alternative Rock with some Heavy Metal emphasis, though not enough to consider it a Metal song.
Pop is a synonym of bubble gum music, which is not popular, but is a synonym of popular. what?!
I agree with Martin_Canine - again, a rock genre was mistakenly called "metal". Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein, etc., aren't metal. They are Industrial Rock.
And, no, this item isn't stupid - Industrial Metal is a fake subgenre because the bands called "Industrial Metal" don't actually play metal.
Strapping Young Lad are Death/Thrash Metal with industrial influences.

And this is very different from Marilyn Manson.

To stuff with good drops.

The English band, Venom is credited for laying the groundwork for Thrash Metal with their debut album "Welcome... read more
Just a weird name.
Eh, modern rap doesn't sound a lot like normal rap. The genre as a whole can stay the same but we need more sub-genres like mumble-rap, trap-rap, hip-pop, thug rap, rap&b.
Little to do on reggae. It should rather follow the template of K-pop, J-pop and should be called L-pop instead.
To drunk cowboy country.
Just say modern country.
Not sure about this one... though Grunge has Three different sounds
1st type is Alternative mixed with Punk (Nirvana)
2nd is Alternative mixed with Hard Rock (Pearl Jam)
3rd is Alternative mixed with Metal (Alice in Chains, Soundgarden Melvins)
To the genre that killed metal.
People said that this music genre is oxymoron because "punk" is anti mainstream but "pop" is mainstream what do you think? I like this music genre.
To wannabe cool rap.
The list mostly includes bad genres with great genres in their name. Here's an example for the opposite.
To trash music. Blues sucks. Heavy Metal is the best.
It'd look good changed to "Bluezz."
If ever I owned a Blues / Jazz Bar, I'd call it Misty's (or Miss T's) Bluezz Bar.
It's pretty removed from punk. It's generally quite nothing like punk. But many post-genres are confusing.
