Top 10 Musical Genres that Most Need to Be Renamed
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.
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!
"Nu" sounds weird.
To stuff with good drops.
To drunk cowboy country
Just say modern country
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.
Fear Factory are Death and Groove Metal with industrial influences.
And this is very different from Marilyn Manson.
To Iron and Steel cause it's industrial.
Pop is a synonym of bubble gum music, which is not popular, but is a synonym of popular. what?!
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.
To trash music. Blues sucks. Heavy Metal is the best.
To something like 'Music Worshipping the Unhallowed Throne of Satan.'
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.
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 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.
To wannabe cool rap
The list mostly includes bad genres with great genres in their name. Here's an example for the opposite.
To "Fred Durst makes my Ear Drums Burst! "
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 guite nothing like punk. But many post genres are confusing.
