I love it and it is the best out of all of them. God bless.

Actually there are Christian bands that actually do metal and have the electric guitar riffs and. Have better drum beats than country, rap, and pop all together

I feel bad up voting this because the artists have good intentions for a good cause, but all of them sound the same and have the same lyrics. The only exception I can think of is Lenny Kravitz's 'Are You Gonna Go My Way.'

Christian metalcore is really great.

22 Gangsta Rap

Seems like everyone here knows nothing about rap in the 90s

I don't think anyone actually likes rap or hip hop so much that they get goosebumps listening it. Rap and hip hop are just a disguise to one's personality to stick in their group.

Good grief if the same personalities of the metal heads on this site were hip hop fans...

This is basically Rap. - mattstat716

23 Adult Contemporary

And of course, a moron would put this here.

Musix about new age astronomy? And old people listen to it. - admonlee

24 Post-grunge

Everlong by foo fighters is pretty great. I can't think of anything else. And I absolutely hate Daughtry and Hinder all those other white trash bands who think they can rock. Yuck.

Puddle of Mudd and Creed. Also made Nickelback terrible. There are a few good post-grunge acts, such as Foo Fighters, but those are few and very far between.

Grew up on this as well, not gonna hate. In fact their some decent bands from this genre. Shinedown, Foo Fighters, Chevelle, Three Days Grace to name a few. - cjWriter1997

I hate post-grunge. It's basically a watered-down, radio-friendly version of grunge rock.

25 Reggaeton

I hate hip hop, pop and emo... But there is a worse crap called reggaeton

In all rock (real rock bands) and metal bands you will find that the members really make a good effort for making music, and many guitarists, singers, drummers and bassists do a really hard work and sometimes they are underrated... But the reggaeton artists who are doing what they call "music" (actually isn't more than just noisy crap) don't make a good effort and receive many attention...

Everywhere place I go (in my country) I hear that stupid noise... I haven't gone to a place in where I hear good music as rock or metal (only few places). And the worst thing is that those "artists" gain money by their stupid noise... - rock2metal

If you think hip hop and pop was bad, wait until you listen to this. This is the worst music genre ever, at least pop sometimes uses instruments and some singers are good, and hip hop used to be good until the 2000's. This genre was never good, they have awful beats and most of the so called vocalists can't sing and sound like robots and mostly all they do is talk and make robot sounds. The songs are offensive and gross. Every time I listen to this on the radio, I want to change it badly.

I feel badly ashamed that Reggaeton comes from my country, Puerto Rico. It gives us a really bad name, and the music is crap! I have to endure this crappy music every single time I go on a school road trip. Ugh! Rock is so much better! Metal is so much better! Even Justin Bieber is so much better (And for me, that's saying a lot! ). Not only the music is bad, the lyrics are horrible, sexist, disgusting... I could keep going. I rather shoot a bullet to my skull than listening to this.

Even worse than pop music.

26 Rockabilly

Rockabilly is the primitive form of rock and roll. It was the mix of white hillbilly with black rhythm and blues. Some rockabilly songs lean more towards rhythm and blues and others more towards the white hillbilly country. Many people ( like myself ) say that Elvis Presley invented the genre. The impact of rockabilly on a cultural social level is enormous. It gave us rock, changed pop music, it changed even fashion, haircuts etc... It's ridiculous to put this music genre on a list like this. The best music genres wouldn't exist if there was no rockabilly because it's the genre that started the fire for all what is modern music.

How come this is on the list? Rockabilly brought a lot of country over into the main stream.. Just listen to some of the original 50s

Rockabilly is not my favourite but you have to appreciate it. It created most of these genres and was actually pretty good.

Guess what? Country is one of the most hated genres of all time commenter below

27 Nightcore

This shouldn't even be a music genre, all it is copyright infringement. And the pitch changing man it just gets old. A lot of the time you'll find this rubbbish on YouTube with a typical anime background and with a inconsistent pitch change, cause whoever made it couldn't bother to sing it themselves. And oh it can ruin your favorite songs from any genre. For example I listened to Animal I Have Become on Nightcore and it sounded like complete garbage! I just hope this ends up being a fad and dying, cause I'm sick of it! - BoredJeff02

It's stealing other people's work and changing the pitch. Disgrace to music.

This isn't even music. You just take an existing song and speed it up to where it sounds high pitched. For example, imagine "Master of Puppets" by Metallica as a nightcore song. It would suck big time.

I like Nightcore, but I don't consider it a genre. I consider Nightcore just a trend, but it's not a bad trend. Unless you're actually monetizing your nightcore, and if you're doing that, then you are stealing.

As long as you're not monetizing, you're cool. - somelifeonaplanet

28 Pop Punk

Person who said that punk artists are whiny spoiled kids complaining about first world problems: I want to call you an idiot but I won't because I am trying so hard not to be mad. Having anxiety, being suicidal, having depression, being abused or harassed (physically emotionally or sexually), having no friends, having disabilities or diseases, being bullied, having no freedom, being poor or broke, being ignored or misunderstood, or being accused of something you didn't do are all valid reasons to complain; YOU yourself are complaining about hating a band. Stop insulting people because many punk artists have a higher than average intelligence and are only complaining because of hate and struggle and feeling trapped, anxious, angry, or boring, which is perfectly fine.

I like all types of punk. Even pop punk. I actually think it shouldn't be called pop punk. It should be called nu punk, buzz punk or catchy punk

I suppose something good could come out of this genre but it's become something that people who don't want to listen to mainstream pop but don't like anything more hardcore listen too.

They aren't that bad of musicians in fact some groups have a handful of really good songs (those bands are rare exceptions most range from decent to intolerable), their problem instead lies more with the label. the bands who's music falls under this brand often tarnishes the genre punk and brings poor opinions of punk in general, and simply taint the ideologies of punk. lastly they're sellouts!

29 Extreme Metal

I also voted just to get a point out. The people who wrote it's just screaming, no rhythm, and random notes are ignorant fools. For one, trying to scream properly without damaging your voice while sounding intense requires a ton of practice and skill to do properly; try screaming like you normally do with no technique and I guarantee your voice won't even last one song. Second, some of the music itself is extremely complex and requires a fairly decent understanding of music theory to compose and play well. Look up bands like Meshuggah and Opeth for examples of this. The lyrics are a lot more meaningful than people think they are, they are based off of all sorts of subjects. People have a tendency to think something is crap simply because they don't understand it, which is very stupid to do. I understand that people may not like because of how loud and chaotic it is, but don't go making a bunch of ignorant assumptions about something just because you don't understand it. Actually THINK ...more

Guys this I a genre that causes subgenres and there is no band that plays only extreme. by the way extreme is death, thrash, doom and black metal its not a simple genre of metal

I hate all metal! Music must be beautiful! Metal is not! This just bugs me! Black Sabbath's Children of the grave is the worst out of all music! The vocals are too howled, the guitar is too distorted, it is just ugly!

Well, metal is ugly, it is way too loud! The lyrics are yucky, the guitar is way too distorted, metal is extremely overrated! Extreme metal is my least favorite musical gerne of all time! These vocals are much too painful and ugly!

30 Indie Pop

For those who don't understand indie pop it is popular music from an independent artist. Just because you aren't part of some huge record label doesn't mean your music can't be popular. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Professional musician opinion - the only genre that I actually think is totally lame. Still, there are the rare exceptions; just don't ask me to listen more than twice...

Indie pop is way better than pop, pop

Annoying whiny hipsters that should stick to open mic poetry.

33 Latin

How is Shakira and Santana bad though?

This is racist, I don't really like the music either, and this is coming from a Hispanic myself, but you don't need to hate it, I don't hate it, it's just that it's not really my type. Although Latin classic rock is good, but the rest are not really good.

I'm hispanic but I listen to Japanese rock. I grew up with hispanic music, but ever since I was a kid, both English and latin music were boring. They never made me feel emotions or feel my heart beating. I'm not fond of latin music (or western music in general. I find it all the same). Just not my type...

I'm not even Hispanic and I still enjoy this. Some people just have no culture whatsoever.

34 Trap Music

Should be called crap music.

I love EDM, but I hate this genre. Sure, there are some good trap songs, but for the most part, it's kinda bad. Although making trap music, along with other types of EDM, is difficult to make. So I am going to stay away from this genre a bit, and learn to appreciate it.

Just go on YouTube and search up "Spongebob Trap Remix" and change your mind.

Trap is killing music. - somelifeonaplanet

35 Rape Metal

Is this even a genre of its own?

WHAT?! What kind of sick, sadistic, mallicious, perverted, sex hungry creep would have created such a thing?!

This is a music genre? - ashduck

I don't think this is a genre. Rather it's a way to classify extreme metal bands that use such lyrical themes for the shock factor and don't actually support rape. - kk2001

38 Smooth Jazz

So take a great form of artistic music (jazz) and water it down so that all artistic merit is removed. What you get is smooth jazz, a form of jazz that only exists to make money and give The Weather Channel something to play. The only other thing smooth jazz is "good" for is as music for adult films. Oh, and once you've heard one instrumental cover of "Fields of Gold", you've heard any smooth jazz version that could ever exist.

Kenny G and his peers are LAME. This is to jazz what pop-punk is to punk and if you think that's somehow positive, (Or if you think Blink 182 etc. Are punk) you need an to get your ass kicked.

Oh, come on! I play a jazz instrument (the trumpet) and I don't mind listening to this at all! Jazz is classic!

I wander what the old days of Jazz look like - Neonco31

40 Metal

Which retard put metal here? Whoever did, I encourage you to blow whatever you have for a brain out with a shotgun. Metal is amazing. Bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium have excellent music and inspirational lyrics. There's metal songs for whatever mood you're in. It's not all just senseless screaming and Satanism like the average retard thinks. - MetalFoREVer1228

I agree! Everyone who voted to put metal on here should listen to "Welcome To Hell" by Slayer and "Hell Awaits" by Venom, because that's exactly what is waiting for them.

Really? Metal is one of the worst genres? Whoever put this, YOU. CAN GO TO THE PIER, TIE A STONE ON YOUR LEG, AND THROW YOURSELF TO THE SEA! Metal is one of the best genres ever existed. No one can top Metal (except Rock).

Idiots, you can change your vote and the comment can still be on here. - Powerfultekin

I'm really surprised to see metal here, metal is the best music genre of all time, bands really take much time and effort to create their own music, and they make their own music with real passion and love to their fans, lyrically metal is the best genre you can find everything for every mood, and you can find it fast, slow, brutal, evil, melodic and dark, forever who says metal is just untalented musicians are trying to scream with no talent at all, try to play on the instruments like they do, try to growl like they do and try to write lyrics like they do..you will fail if you don't have the real passion of playing music..rap doesn't take any talent to make a song.. - nooreldeen

Ok boys and girls who put metal up here, I'm not gonna tell you to shoot yourself our throw yourself off a cliff like some of my fellow metalheads would and neither will I force metal on anybody. I will just list some facts.

First of all, metal is not growling and screaming all the time like in black metal, death metal, metalcore/deathcore etc. (There are actually plenty of metal fans that hate those genres). If you aren't into the growling, check out some of the earlier metal bands like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden or Judas Priest. These are some of the most famous (and in my opinion best) bands from the early metal scene.
If you aren't that much into the heavy distorted guitar riffs and want a more melodic approach, then two good albums from the same period of metal are Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, both by Iron Maiden. If you want to go earlier than that (into the 70s), you have Judas Priest and Black Sabbath and Deep Purple (who were pretty much the ...more - kk2001
