Most Unique Music Genres


The Top Ten

1 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.
2 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. - BoredJeff02

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."

The Contenders

11 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! - BoredJeff02

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