Most Unique Music Genres

The Top Ten

1 Progressive Rock Progressive Rock Progressive rock is a broad genre of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and United States throughout the mid to late 1960s.

Progressive rock is unique especially pink floyd and rush - zxm

2 Progressive Metal

Progressive metal's good.but it's just a combined form of prog rock and heavy metal - zxm

At the risk of being labeled a "grammar Nazi," there is NO "most unique." There is NO "less unique."
There is no "kinda unique." Someone is either alive, or not. Someone is either pregnant, or not. And something is either unique, or not."

3 Heavy Metal Heavy Metal Heavy Metal music is a sub-genre of rock music that originated in the late 1960s-70s, featuring more distorted and heavier instrumental work and darker lyrical themes. Heavy Metal broke into mainstream success with bands such as Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Metallica. more.
4 Classical

Classical to me seems more worthy of number one, without it a lot of famous music would've never been made. You know: Mozart, Beethoven etc. without classical music would most likely not exist. As a matter of fact it was probably the first music genre and is still better than Rap and Pop any day. And also Nu Metal is not worth 5th place if you ask me it's just not that worthy.

Yeah it's unique - zxm

5 NeoClassical Metal
6 Trance
7 Nu Metal

There's nothing unique about Nu Metal...

8 New Age
9 Psychedelic Rock

Definitely unique and rarely have bands been able to perform this genre that I know of except for Pink Floyd.

10 Rock Rock Rock music is a music genre that was created in the 1940s. The genre got popular during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Rock bands generally consists of a guitar player, a drummer, bass player and singer. There are a lot of rock subgenres.

Rock is unique,rock is made from various genres. - zxm

The Contenders

11 Symphonic Metal
12 Grunge Grunge Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock and a subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s.
13 Rap

To elaborate, rap allows you to be more creative in what you're trying to express. You don't have to only rhyme. You can do multisyllabic rhymes, a wide barrage of figurative language, and much more. Some rap songs include recognizing ones mother, and making an ode to ones daughter, among others. It is poetry. - SwagFlicks

Rap isn't unique it's just the same thing over and over like Pop music. Most rap songs are about: Having sex, getting drunk, getting stoned, and going to the "Club". Hell even Classical is more unique then this!

I mean, poetry? This is probably the most unique genre ever. - SwagFlicks

There were singers in early era who could sing very fast.rap isn't unique. - zxm

14 Metalcore
15 Hip-Hop

Same thing as Rap not unique at all.

Hip-hop and rap is almost same thing,nothings special - zxm

16 Dubstep

All it is just a beat with no lyrics not unique and anyone could do it.

17 Industrial Metal Industrial Metal
