Top Ten Movements in MusicZahveed From Blues to Emo to Disco, this is the top ten movements in music that defined generations. (Not to be confused with favorite genre of music.)
The Top Ten
Metallica made the Thrash Metal massive and famous, without them, it'd still being an underground genre! Also Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Kreator, Overkill... All of them are of the greatest Metal bands ever!
Megadeth and Slayer for the win! And a bit to Metallica. By the way Metallica is half Thrash, Kill 'Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets,... And Justice For All (R.I. P Cliff). All their early awesomely epic years, which is the 80's, were Thrash. Get your facts straight
Metallica was the biggest and best thrash band when thrash was big. That's why Metallica closed at the big 4 show. Slayer and Sepultura are awesome too Annihilator is amazing as well
All are good musical movements but this has had the least NOTICED (but the one I appreciate most) impact.
p.s. When will people realize that Metallica IS NOT THRASH?! - fireinside96
pink floyd is the greatest band ever, then comes led zeppelin, although jimi hendrix is american the expireince is also a british band because it was started in england and the other members are british. - russian
what can I say? the beatles, the number one band in music history. not my favorite, but close. pink floyd as well. zeppelin and cream and rolling stones and the kinks are excellent bands too - pauler94
This is the best movement.I dont really like the beatles or the birds that much but I love Cream, Led Zeppelin,and especially Floyd. This movement trumps all the other movements. - Chris-1
The birds are one of the most overrated bands but yes the british invasion was the greatest "movement in music. Can't argue with that.V 8 Comments
Nu metal at #8 and this at #32? Are there metalheads around to vote for this? - Metal_Treasure
Pff, how isn't this higher?
Relatable and true to life stuff
Grunge is simply the most passionate music I have ever heard.
Grunge killed hair metal. For that alone it should be considered one of the greatest genres of rock.
What the hell is emo doing on this list, emo sucks, and so does rap, this is the greatest time in music - HighSkoolArtistV 5 Comments
Power metal is the best style of music!
Heavy, power and thrash metal must be the first!
Because there are the best voices and music in this metal!
Singers in power metal are amazing, one of the best out there. And yes, Blind Guardian and Helloween are great. - Metal_Treasure
The Jackson 5, and the rest... The most memorable to me. The Jackson family changed music. They where the first for music movement. They broke down racial barriers and brought the world together through their love for the human race and for the fans. A respected groupand family of our time. I'm so happy that I grew up in that time and loved and learned fromthe music of the Jackson 5. xo RIP MJ - love4mjj
Jackson 5(michael jackson), The Temptaitons, The Platters, Diana Ross, Boys 2 Men - preachinpreach
It is the best music ever and I love listening to it on stereo
I is the best music ever
I wouldn't call Weezer emo... - OnlyInDreams
Fugazi isn't emo though. - DarkBoi-X
I don't know who Fugazi is, but I love Weezer and Jimmy Eat World, but Weezer isn't emo and Jimmy Eat World was emo, but I don't believe they were still emo during this.
Emo is so misunderstood. Anyone making fun of it has no clue about it. - BriksV 4 Comments
With Jackie Evancho leading the way, a new generation is discovering the beauty, reverence, and fun of Classical Crossover music. - BobG
Will never be a mega-seller like the other genres, but miraculous new singers like Jackie Evancho can draw fans from rock, pop, and even metal, and provide a beautiful alternative.
Time and again, Jackie Evancho brings tough men to tears; bikers, soldiers, truckers, and more weep like little children at her concerts.
Classical Crossover can bring the beauty of Classical music back to the popular music scene. Listen to Jackie Evancho sing and be at peace.
You've heard of the British invasion; well Jackie will slowly take you over nicely when you're ready, and bless you with the greatest voice the human ear has ever heard and eyes have ever seen. Nothing invasive, you will respond at your own free will.V 1 Comment
The most pompous, overblown, hyperbolic movement in rock history. Stretched and broke the boundaries of the music that could be made with drums, guitar, bass, keyboards and voice, then added new instruments to the scene. Long compositions, fantastic players, complex lyrics, constantly shifting tones, melodies, and time signatures. Prog has it all, and it's some of the finest music ever created. Every great prog band is distinct; you hear influences, but the core styles are all over the place (Pink Floyd, Gentle Giant, and Rush are all prog giants). Eclectic and excellent, prog is JUST THE BEST.
Progressive rock took what rock and roll started and took it to a whole new level. King Crimson's Court of the Crimson King, Rush's 2112, ELP's Brain Salad Surgery, Genesis's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Yes's Close to the Edge, and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon are some of the albums that defined this intense, dramatic movement of music. - c0mf0rta61ynum6
Psychedelic rock is a lite version of progressive rock
The music really takes you to an another world.
Nu-metal rocks dude... harder then marijuana... - Overdose
Ahem, Linkin Park. Enough said
The only Nu Metal band I really like is Slipknot - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Nu-Metal, definitely gonna get bigV 1 Comment
Green Day, Blink-182, Sum 41 and then Fall Out Boy all brought Punk back into the mainstream. Punk Rock was huge during the 90's and 20's.
So influential. More moving than any other type of rock music. Should be number one, it IS the best movement.
Was such a social movement as well as musical, should be much higher
punk... why every teenager in America owns a guitar - crunchyjuice
Hip-Hop isn't the best music but it is the best music to chill to so screw all you hip-hop haters - Chris-1

There ya go. PUNK- all three of these listed are great - cowboyskid2
I love pop unicorns
Unicorns are pop!
How can this be so low on the list. Come on people, the Doors and Pink Floyd! Jimi is more acid rock but also awesome!
Pink Floyd. The Doors. Jefferson Airplane. The Jimi Hendrix. Wow!
DEVO is the greatest band ever! I don't really like the other bands mentioned, but I love Devo! Devo, The B-52's, Oingo Boingo, XTC, Sparks, Talking Heads, The Clash, Toni Basil, etc. make New Wave my favorite genre! But punk is a very close second! - asdfalexia
This type of Metal is the type of Metal that rules the night and becomes part of the listeners genetic make-up. The majority of us industrial types have sought therapy at one point and aren't to sure about reaching the age of 60 without at least one mental defect. - MinistryMonster
The Juliet Massacre
Bring Me The Horizon
Thy Art is murder
Waking The Cadaver
All Shall Perish
So I can go on endlessly
The faceless isn't deathcore! They r techinical death metal - mp74ify
As I lay dying
Bullet for my Valentine
Bring me the horizon
All that remains
... Enough said
Lamb of god isn't really metalcore though laugh out loud, I love lamb of god but they aren't metalcore.
Britpop should be top 15
Give this your vote! Come on! - PositronWildhawk
An iconic movement, leading to the rise of ZEDD, Calvin Harris, Dj Snake, The Chainsmokers, and other big names in music today. - ProPanda
This is a great alternative to grunge in the 90s. The worst post rock got was maybe pretentious but at least it wasn't shallow and mindless like grunge.
