Worst Combinations of Music Genres
The Top Ten
Two genres that are going downhill to the ground for sure - LightningStrike
Keith Ape is great. - Not_A_Weeaboo
Although I like jazz, the two together are worse than pop on its own. The rhythm, drumming and layout mostly comes from pop, while some girl meows in a hoarse voice, and a man is playing random notes on a saxophone, and someone is rolling his elbow on a piano. Not to mention that both pop and jazz lyrics are already weak on their own. - Alkadikce
Perfect music for a cheesy Brasilian soap opera. - Alkadikce
It just makes me laugh - BreakFastBeast2005
Just no. - Cyri
A genre based on American and one based on Jamaican folk music together? You should just add some sitar, bagpie, pan flute, steel drums and balalaika to complete the picture. - Alkadikce
Together I call it "great-grandma music". - Alkadikce
Jazz has 2 layers: popular jazz and instrumental (more technical) jazz. Popular jazz doesn't go with metal. But elements from instrumental (technical) jazz are used in metal, mostly in progressive metal (esp. technical death metal and progressive death metal). I think it's an interesting experiment but some results are better than others. Some metal bands just incorporated jazz better and I don't mind this combination when it's done good.
I made a list about it - Top 10 Metal Songs with Jazz Influences - Metal_Treasure
Both genres are great on their own, but the culture beyond them is so opposite. I wonder if a metal fan can recommend me a great example of this combination.
Edit: I didn't know Cynic and Watchtower when I made this comment - Alkadikce
Cynic, The Aristocrats, and Atheist are very disappointed in you. - The_Crimson_King
I put this item here when I didn't know them yet. I searched "jazz metal" and the first match was horrible. Now I regret including this item - Alkadikce
Jazz and Metal should not be together. - ArcticWolf
I wanna die - Cyri
It usually remains alternative rock. - Alkadikce
I agree that disco goes with rock - "I Was Made For Lovin' You" by Kiss is basically a disco song made hard rock style.
I would add that surprisingly, disco also goes with metal, judging by some metal covers of disco songs. - Metal_Treasure
Disco goes surprisingly well with some genres: Blue Öyster Cult's self-titled song is a great example of disco and rock together. - Alkadikce
By Christian, I mean religious songs sung in the church. Nowadays it is a fashion to sing pop songs about God in the church, but why? - Alkadikce
It's done to encourage youngsters to attend... guitars and happy clappys. Pop/rock songs do not belong in church.
Prog - Musically complex with many themes surrounding its structure
Hi Hop - Musically repetitive with common themes surrounding its structure
Yeah, try combining those two. Doesn't work, does it?
How would it work? - Cyri
I put it on last place because I think it does not exist, but imagine it did... - Alkadikce
HOW would this even work? - BlueTelegraph
This is literally Limp Bizkit - LiterallyMusic3482
