Musical Genres that Need to Be Renamed
The Top Ten
I find this list pretty dumb. We all know what these genres stand for, so why change a name? Even if "it's not metal", "more like poser", "more like crap", it still doesn't make sense.
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.
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.
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
Just call it Nu Rock! - Userguy44
To stuff with good drops. - AlphaQ
To drunk cowboy country
Just say modern country
To Evil Unspeaken "Music". - AlphaQ
Pop is a synonym of bubble gum music, which is not popular, but is a synonym of popular. what?!
To music that Metalhead hates
To Iron and Steel cause it's industrial.
To stuff with guitars and keyboards or whatever
No, industrial metal IS industrial metal, industrial is a prefix and industrial is describing the type of metal. therefor, this item is stupid
To Shaved Eyebrow Metal. - AlphaQ
80's Glam Hard Rock - christangrant
To noisecore - Userguy44
To Drunkcore, Wankcore, Crunkwhore...I despise this genre though. - AlphaQ
To Soda Can (because it usually has little-to-zero metal in it) - Metal_Treasure
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 labelled 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. - CrimsonShark
To trash music. Blues sucks. Heavy Metal is the best.
To something like 'Music Worshipping the Unhallowed Throne of Satan.'
To satan worshipping noise (joke, chill)
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
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. - AlphaQ
To blah blah blah blah gangster
To crap. Jk - Userguy44
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
@wrests-Glam Metal isn't really metal though. The most poppy metal genre is power metal.
To Cringe Because This Genre Has Songs That Make Me Cringe. - AlphaQ
To the genre that killed metal. - Userguy44
To 90's cool kids favorite music
To 'kool kidz choons' - Lord28
There's nothing to change
People said that this music genre is oxymoron because "punk" is anti mainstreem but "pop" is mainstreem what do you think? I like this music genre
Little to do on reggae. It should rather follow the template of K-pop, J-pop and should be called L-pop instead. - Alkadikce
To gangster rap, spell it right you silly boy
To wannabe cool rap
One of the few here that I understand. It's very different from grunge. It's less focused on mental illness and personal crises. - JoLeKosovo
To Alternative Hard Rock because that's bascially what it is - christangrant
To Post-Cringe. - AlphaQ
To old stuff ig?
No, it's a good name. I don't think any genre should change name anyway. - JoLeKosovo
The list mostly includes bad genres with great genres in their name. Here's an example for the opposite. - Alkadikce
This combination would become "Crap" music - Britgirl
To "Fred Durst makes my Ear Drums Burst! "
Jazz Trumpets...Look I Don't Listen to This That Much And Know Nothing About Jazz So Spank Me Now... - AlphaQ
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
It's pretty removed from punk. It's generally guite nothing like punk. But many post genres are confusing. - JoLeKosovo
