Top Ten Movements in MusicFrom 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
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 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!
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?!
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.
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
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.
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.
Nu metal at #8 and this at #32? Are there metalheads around to vote for this?
Pff, how isn't this higher?
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
Hey, the pumpkins are awesome.. lol, I saw the Melvins in concert last year, they weren't too bad..
So emo is 3rd and grunge is 4th grunge is the most undrrated genre in the history of musice I do evrything to see an other grunge Movement in are days
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.
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
Jackson 5(michael jackson), The Temptaitons, The Platters, Diana Ross, Boys 2 Men
It is the best music ever and I love listening to it on stereo
I is the best music ever
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.
The reason why fall out boy and blood on the dance floor and bands like that are so popular now days, laugh out loud.
Emo is so misunderstood. Anyone making fun of it has no clue about it.
The 3 main reasons why emo still rulez today
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.
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.
Classical Crossover can bring the beauty of Classical music back to the popular music scene. Listen to Jackie Evancho sing and be at peace.
With Jackie Evancho leading the way, a new generation is discovering the beauty, reverence, and fun of Classical Crossover music.
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.
Psychedelic rock is a lite version of progressive rock
The music really takes you to an another world.
Nu metal is the best because it's a fusion of hip hop thrash old skool metal and some other s&^ but it is great music, and don't forget the deftones, incubus and mudvayne
Nu-metal rocks dude... harder then marijuana...
The only Nu Metal band I really like is Slipknot
Nu-Metal, definitely gonna get big
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
Hip-Hop isn't the best music but it is the best music to chill to so screw all you hip-hop haters
Hip-hop forever! I'm just cruisin'!
to the one who wrote somegreat bands: don't forget D'ERLANGER, DIE IN CRIES, BODY, ZI:KILL
Some great bands started out as visual kei like X-japan, Dir en Grey and Luna Sea
from 80s until now but it hate it when some people forget some great bands
There ya go. PUNK- all three of these listed are great
Did you forget about Rise Against?
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!
