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.
To Extreme Metal Because It's Basically More Metal Than Other Metal. - AlphaQV 2 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

Dark metal - RoseCandyMusic
To drunk cowboy country - RoseCandyMusic
Just say modern country - EliHbk
To Evil Unspeaken "Music". - AlphaQ
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...actually that name fits quite well. - AlphaQV 3 Comments
Still, even if they are or are not Metal (doesn't matter to me), Rammstein is still a really good band. - cjWriter1997
To Iron and Steel cause it's industrial. - AlphaQ
To stuff with guitars and keyboards or whatever - 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 Shaved Eyebrow Metal. - 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 gangster rap, spell it right you silly boy - EliHbk
To wannabe cool rap - RoseCandyMusic
To Cringe Because This Genre Has Songs That Make Me Cringe. - AlphaQ
To the genre that killed metal. - Userguy44

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
To trash music. Blues sucks. Heavy Metal is the best.
Little to do on reggae. It should rather follow the template of K-pop, J-pop and should be called L-pop instead. - Alkadikce
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.
There's nothing to change - EliHbk
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 - RoseCandyMusic
To old stuff ig? - EliHbk
This combination would become "Crap" music - Britgirl
To "Fred Durst makes my Ear Drums Burst! " - EliHbk
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
To Alternative Hard Rock because that's bascially what it is - christangrant
To Post-Cringe. - AlphaQ
The list mostly includes bad genres with great genres in their name. Here's an example for the opposite. - Alkadikce
