Top Ten Most Varied Music GenresThis is based on sound rather than lyrics. Also if you disagree with my choices, it's probably because you don't know enough of the genre
The Top Ten
It makes sense doesn't it?
This genre covers such a wide range of music
Amen! I couldn't agree more. Metal is one of the most experimental genres and among its subgenres, death metal provides the largest room for experimentation and innovation. Because of that, it's incredibly varied and as a result death metal has more sub-subgenres than most of the metal subgenres. For example, thrash, prog metal and power metal have less subgenres than death metal.
I laugh hard every time I hear/read all death metal sounds the same. Actually death metal subgenres sound pretty different and only one thing is compulsory - the death growls. No death growls, no death metal. But even death growls sound different depending on the vocalist. - Metal_Treasure
Some people think it's all the same growling but it really isn't. Every death metal band has a different feel to it
System Of A Down is completely different from Slipknot who are completely different from Limp Bizkit and so on. There are very few genres that are as varied as nu metal
While some may not like this genre, there is no denying how varied it is, some bands scream while others heavily downtune their instruments, some even rap. - kempokid
You have hardcore punk, reggae influenced punk, pop punk, normal punk, RATM like stuff
You kinda have to types of grunge - heavy and not heavy. However, even within those types Alice In Chains are very different to Soundgarden and Nirvana are very different to Pearl Jam...
I don't know too much about this genre but from what I've heard the bands vary a lot from each band to another
Yes, bands vary but not as much as in death metal so I agree death metal is #1 and power metal is lower. - Metal_Treasure
Some people think raps all the same but it's anything but.
Maybe not so much pure reggae but so many bands have been inspired by reggae (The Police, The Clash) and have created a sort of combination of genres so for that reason it's in my top 10
Just all of it! - SoldierOfFortune
I'd prefer to keep to just subgenres but nevermind
Jazz is incredibly varied! There are many different sounds in something classified as "jazz". Some songs may also include free solos so it is different every time! - Phillip873
I didn't know enough jazz to add this
In my opinion this isn't actually a genre but I'll count it anyway because many people do think it is. It covers a lot of music
