41 Contemporary Christian

It's basically country/pop with religious lyrics. And I don't hate it because of the religious music, I actually enjoy traditional cathedral music (the one that uses the pipe organ) with the Latin choirs, even though I'm an atheist. I can respect what someone says in their songs as long as they make it entertaining and there is depth to it. - Caleb9000

Religious songs are boring.

One word: boring!

Look I'm Catholic and this music is a disgrace to our religion. Christian rock is a laughing stock and it thinks it targets a younger audience.

43 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.

Blink-182 is awesome though, and they actually used to make more punk sounding songs, try Carousel. - AnimeDrawer

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

44 Pop Rap

Those annoying hip hop dance songs you hear like Crank that and Whip Nae Nae. - naFrovivuS

This is the crap. Rap in general is not terrible, but this usually is. - DCfnaf

Soulja. Boy.

46 Reggae

Why is reggae even on this list reggae from the 60s/70s is awesome, most people don't realise the diversity and the different sub genres in reggae.

Wasn't bob marley reggae?

Are you kidding me Bob Marley, Soja, Through the Roots I love reggae - donovanthorn

Terrible...Just. Plain. Earful!

47 Disco

This is a decent genre. Would've been lower if not for the rise of rock and roll. - SwagFlicks

Well, I can see why it died.

Dead or Alive is a good example of disco music - Neonco31

Le Freak, I will Survive, Dancing Queen, Stayin' Alive.
All songs of these 4 were great. And disco.
The reason you don't hear disco anymore because of some asss in 1980 who put dynamite next to disco plates.

48 Bubblegum

I don't think this is a genre. I think it's a way to mock pop if anything. At least that's how I use it - ryanrimmel

Bubblegum is a type of pop, since you were wondering - FloydtheCat

That's a gum product.

What is bubblegum?

49 Soft Rock

How ignorant calling anyone an idiot. Fist of all there is no soft rock genre and evidence of a lack of intelligence. Slow music is in EVERY genre of music from Rock, Metal, Country and so on. Songs about love and stupid lyrics? You just bashed every genre of music. Now about calling people idiots!

This is just incredibly annoying. All of the old people who think that this music is by far the best are close-minded idiots. Now, keep in mind I'm not stereotyping old people. Some people say that today's music is really auto tuned and it is true, Music is auto tuned today but at least they don't sound like ' robots! My bus driver in 7th and 8th grade ALWAYS played this music every day and I think I lost some sensation in my eardrums.

This list is very ignorant! Closed minded my arse. Little children should not speak of music what do they know about it really. You have not been around long enough to have an opinion!

Soft rock is very good, its good for emotional feelings. - zxm

50 Danger Music

Danger music's point is to be as bad as possible. I first saw a video of it with commentary and thought it was satire on today's bad pop, but no! I found another video of it, but my speakers stopped working as if it was saying " this terrible music is way below me"!

It's literally noise made to cause harm to the audience! - MKBeast

The main purpose of Danger Music is to put people in danger. No thanks. - djpenquin999

There's no point calling it bad. It doesn't want to be good - GreenDayFan21

51 Deathcore

I'm really surprised that this hasn't made it past the top 20 yet. Way Way Worse than death metal, at least that requires some talent! In a deathcore song there are about 20 breakdowns in each song while the singer screams and pig squeals about how he wants to kill the school bully. Notable bands are Suicide Silence, Whitechapel and Carnifex.

Deathcore is not very good to be honest. Every once in a while, there is a good Deathcore band, like Despised Icon, Veil Of Maya, Born Of Osiris, and Oceans Ate Alaska, but a breakdown for a whole song is not what I think of when I think of music. I'm LOOKING AT YOU OCEANO. Melodic death metal and death metal are much better.

Made by people who misunderstood death metal. The lyrics aren't as powerful, and quite often you will find bands with clean vocals and emo-like lyrics along with breakdowns. Not to say there aren't good artists, but they are few in number. It's basically metalcore's big brother.

Much worse then regular death metal for sure, to edgy and fake. - Lucretia

52 Broadway

Really? It's just jazz onstage.

53 Emocore

Raise your hand if this is your favorite. *raises both hands*

Stupid emo - FloydtheCat

"For people who think it's cool to be depressed for no reason. "
NOT TRUE. A lot of people listen to this genre simply because they like the way it sounds. Don't comment if you have no idea what you're talking about.

54 Extratone

Extratone is to electronic music as horrorcore is to hip hop. I swear I'm not exaggerating when I say it sounds like a chainsaw. But I guess it's still music, though I can't think of anyone who would enjoy it.

This is not music. It's a pulsating beat. It, along with splittercore, might as well be noise music.

Indestinguishable genre that plays kicks for 2000 bpm, and has been proven to cause medical problems.

I can stand Drill n Bass.
But I hate this genre
wow I'm confusing - wrests

55 Indian/Punjabi Rap

Every song sounds exactly the same, lousy rap over unintelligible scream/moaning over the same stock beat and sitar or some other string instrument.

They all sound the same and they're all terrible.

Honey Singh is the worst singer in history

See folk hop

Easily the worst and cringiest genre ever! Bollywood was bad with dancing around the trees and all that, but now Punjabi rap has made it 9000x worse!

56 Pornogore

Well, I don't even know what this music genre is, but I can tell that it's pretty horrible. I'm just glad that prog rock isn't on this list.

This just sounds awful and disturbing

Is this even real?

Porn?!? Gore?!?! EWWWGH! - BorisRule

57 Blues Blues

Anyone who puts the blues on this list is totally uneducated about music at all considering the genres you like are derived from the blues.

I listen to heavy metal and rock, but blues should not be on this list.

What blues is quite good to be honest.

Blues is the genre with the most soul. Whoever added this must be Satan's child - BrianScott01

59 Progressive Rock Progressive Rock

A lot of people call prog "nerdy" or "uncool," but a lot of the time, it involves complex time signatures and instrumental parts that are frankly hard to play. And it's not all long epics - plenty of prog bands have made short songs that are quite good.

Rush, Pink Floyd, and Dream Theater are some of the best bands that have and will ever exist.

What? It's easily the greatest sub-genre of rock out there! You people have really short attention spans if you think that all songs should be 2-4 minutes long. Prog rockers are the best at writing music, considering they can handle writing such complex lyrics.
Rush, King Crimson, Dream Theater, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Yes, Genesis (? ), Marillion, Camel, Renaissance, Van Der Graaf Generator, Porcupine Tree, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, The Pineapple Thief, and Pink Floyd are bands that define this genre best, and show that you can put time and effort into writing songs with time signatures not many would normally hear, separated into multiple parts that each have their own theme, and expand on many different meanings. Music isn't always simple you know. - naFrovivuS

AHH IT IS GOOD - MilkmanBoi

60 Horrorcore

Many people hate horrorcore because of the abysmal rap duo Insane Clown Posse. Understandable, but my reasoning for hating horrorcore is actually quite different, and to be frank, ironic.

It's because of Eminem. Almost every time he tries horrorcore he epically fails. '97 Bonnie and Clyde, Kim, Kill You, the entirety of Relapse? The only two times he pulled off horrorcore right were Stan and Bad Guy. Even then, can you really consider Bad Guy horrorcore? - WonkeyDude98

Terrible rappers singing about Hell and death. That's all it is. And it's horrible.

These people have something seriously wrong with them - thetopten

Core usually applies to metal, but this is rap... anyways can't stand the Insane Clown Posse, wonder why my 40 year old mother loves them. - Lucretia
