The Top Ten
The best subgenre rock/metal in the history.
So great. - Fullwalking2
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 opinion
Yeah um it is not exactly rock it has became a different genre - PanagosBoi
It's still rock, just a different flavor of rock born out of different interests. As much as I hate to say it, Heavy Metal is the same amount of Rock as Pop Rock. One is just for people who can't handle good music... Metal came from rock and just so happened to spawn its own infinite number of subgenres. So, sub... subgenres, I guess? - AwesoV 3 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.
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?!?
Genesis is my favorite example of this, but yes, rush, and king crimson, also leave long lasting impacts on a person.V 8 Comments
I like punk rock so much
I love the rebellion and pissing everyone off. I also love how loud and fast it is. There are so many great bands to come out of this genre like the ramones, Green Day, bad religion, the Sex Pistols, hüsker dü, fang, clash, rancid, bikini kill, and so many more. It should AT LEAST be at number 3.
Come on,punk rock should be on #1,is the best genre of rock!V 1 Comment
Great music genre. - Userguy44
It gives such a wide range of creativity without being tied to one specific genre
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.
I would've voted for heavy metal, but seeing this at only 6 is disappointing.
The best of the best, the stones, the doors
Just listen Joe Bonamassa ''Just Got Paid''...
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.)
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! - RogerWatersfan1999
It makes me feel great and out of touch with this world, I love it
Why do I have to explain my pick when it's based exclusively on personal taste? It feels completely unnescesary :S
just no. - sweetbeef
Lynyrd Skynyrd? Marshall Tucker Band? CCR?
Religion + metal= doesn't mix - sweetbeef
Just put everything above Christian metal, for the love of Zeus.
Combination of Jazz and Rock make this an awesome genre. - Nord666
The sound of the 80s.
The start of it all and the best!
Should be number one
So sweet Euphoric...
Should be higher up the list what
Oh come on! Post punk is better than Krautrock! Id put it in my top 5
Grindcore is a genre of metal. Not rock.
