Musical Genres that Need to Be RenamedEliHbk
The Top Ten
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. - Martin_Canine
Never mind the elitists. Soaking their pants fighting for "true metal". Professionals been playing metal for 50 years.
Hardcore is not metal. Metal is classical inspired.
Core is punk and metal is metal, so punk metal? I dunno, since I am not a big fan of the genre - LucretiaV 3 Comments
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. - cjWriter1997
What I know for sure is that the word "metal" must be removed from its name asap. - Metal_Treasure
He's just pointing out that the genre has nothing to do with metal. It fits more with the alternative rock inspired genres. - Martin_Canine
To not metal this is rock - RoseCandyMusic
Heavy alt. rap rock - EliHbkV 4 Comments
Pop only stands for popular... Metallica and Queen were pop. - Lucretia
Pop is a synonym of bubble gum music, which is not popular, but is a synonym of popular. what?! - EliHbk
To music that Metalhead hates - RoseCandyMusic
To trash-can - EliHbk
Noise. - bugger
To flunkcore - EliHbk
Satanic metal? Either way there is racist national socialist black metal, etc. - Lucretia
To something like 'Music Worshipping the Unhallowed Throne of Satan.' - bugger
To satan worshipping noise (joke, chill) - EliHbk
Dark metal - RoseCandyMusic
To drunk cowboy country - RoseCandyMusic
Just say modern country - EliHbk
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. - AlphaQ
To bar-spittin - EliHbk
To blah blah blah blah gangster - RoseCandyMusic
Thrash Metal, that's an intense name that needs to be kept the same. - PeeledBanana
Thrash sounds perfect. Thrash metal is classical inspired.
Nah the name fits perfectly - christangrant
To thrash is to fight, mosh and such. Thrash Metal has this very moshy, in your face sound that meets it's name just fine. - cjWriter1997V 2 Comments
Still, even if they are or are not Metal (doesn't matter to me), Rammstein is still a really good band. - cjWriter1997
"Industrial Rock" - Martin_Canine
No, industrial metal IS industrial metal, industrial is a prefix and industrial is describing the type of metal. therefor, this item is stupid - EliHbk
Strapping Young Lad are Death/Thrash Metal with industrial influences.
Fear Factory are Death and Groove Metal with industrial influences.
And this is very different from Marilyn Manson. - Metal_Treasure
80's Glam Hard Rock - christangrant
To gangster rap, spell it right you silly boy - EliHbk
To wannabe cool rap - RoseCandyMusic
To Soda Can (because it usually has little-to-zero metal in it) - Metal_Treasure
To trash music. Blues sucks. Heavy Metal is the best.
To 90's cool kids favorite music - RoseCandyMusic
To 'kool kidz choons' - Lord28
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) - christangrant
Should be called CRAP because we all know Country + Rap = Crap - christangrant
Country and rap are 2 DIFFERENT things. 1 is awesome and funky while the other one is useless and has shtt like Cotton Eye No. Don't mix things that are completely opposite. what's next? Pop Metal? - AlphaQ
This combination would become "Crap" music - Britgirl
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. - Britgirl
To Alternative Hard Rock because that's bascially what it is - christangrant
