The Top Ten
The best subgenre rock/metal in the history.

Technically still a rock subgenre. Similar debate with anime and cartoon. - yungstirjoey666
It used to be a rock subgenre. But not it’s not. - MegadethFan07
The best of the best of the best of the BEST! If you hate this then you're waste of human flesh and blood! - Nord666
It is still a rock subgenre in my opinion4 Comments
The right sub genre to arrive at the right time
Until rather recently, prog rock was a rather overlooked and relatively undiscovered rock subgenre. While most of the bands are still far from mainstream(with maybe a few exceptions)it has gained a lot of acceptance over the past several years due to an increase awareness which possibly stems from a lot of fans of Pink Floyd, Rush, Yes, Genesis, King Crimson and Porcupine Tree(among others) discovering it.
People who think that Prog Rock is chick repellent haven’t listened to Kate Bush
Glad to see this so high. Love psychedelic, blues, folk and hard too, but I think prog caters to most of my tastes as it is so broad. And I couldn't let punk win! Bands like yes, rush, Floyd and ELP are GODLY. A little surprised to see pop rock so low but WHY IS CHRISTIAN ROCK #9?!?9 Comments
The best rock sub-genre ever. - Soulstealer
Great music genre. - Userguy44
A very wide and popular sub-genre, it is everywhere, if you don't listen to alternative rock, you're either living in an indigenous tribe or, god forbid, a psychopath.
It gives such a wide range of creativity without being tied to one specific genre2 Comments
I like punk rock so much
Come on,punk rock should be on #1,is the best genre of rock!
Grunge is not only Nirvana, by far. And I consider that Nirvana is not the best grunge band. Grunge means two different things :
The Grunge genre, a dirty and punk sound. Like The Melvins, Green river, Mudhonney, the early Soundgarden and... Nirvana.
The Grunge scene or the Seattle Seattle, with the success of Nirvana, other Seattle bands have become most popular. The most popular bands of this scene are (with Nirvana) Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam. Their style are very different, but they take a lot of alternative, Hard Rock, punk or heavy metal sound.
This IS the rock genre of the early 90's! And it's a great history!
(I'm not english sorry for my mistakes.)
The best of the best, the stones, the doors
Just listen Joe Bonamassa ''Just Got Paid''...
Why do I have to explain my pick when it's based exclusively on personal taste? It feels completely unnescesary :S
Look down on it and miss out. - emraldYE
just no. - sweetbeef
Should be number one
Love love love ❤️ Slipknot, System of a Down, Papa Roach, Korn, & many more talented bands ❤️
Religion + metal= doesn't mix - sweetbeef
This is honestly my Favorite Musical Genre of All time (prog would be a close second), and I feel for good reason too. I mean what is there not to like about Psychedelic Rock. It is I feel the most creative music genre of all time. The Fuzz Guitars make the music sound awesome as well. With some of the most talented band ever being Psychedelic rock such as The Beatles (Later on in their Career), Pink Floyd (Early), Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, and even the more obscure bands like Blue Cheer, Love, and Iron Butterfly, I also like or may even love a lot of the modern Psychedelic bands like Tame Impala, The Black Angles, The Flaming Lips, etc. And without it we would not have Prog, Kraut, Acid, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, and much more!
It makes me feel great and out of touch with this world, I love it
Lynyrd Skynyrd? Marshall Tucker Band? CCR?
I heard this subgenre was the backlash against disco.
The sound of the 80s.
One of my favourite subgenres
Just put everything above Christian metal, for the love of Zeus.
So sweet Euphoric...
Combination of Jazz and Rock make this an awesome genre. - Nord666
Should be higher up the list what
Oh come on! Post punk is better than Krautrock! Id put it in my top 5
The start of it all and the best!
Grindcore is a genre of metal. Not rock.
