The Contenders: Page 3

41 Grunge Grunge Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock and a subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s .

Why is grunge on this list? Think Soundgarden and Nirvana guys!

Why is grunge on here? So stupid. So many fantastic bands from this genre

Grunge isn't necessarily the worst, but it is the best. Why is this on here? Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and many other fantastic artists were grunge artists. - Songsta41

Nirvana is grunge and they make good songs like In Bloom, Come As You Are, and Smells Like Teen Spirit. - AnimeDrawer

42 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?

43 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.

HOW IS THIS NOT #1?! THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST GENRE EVER! I WANT IT GONE! - jameshoward

44 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.

45 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.

46 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

48 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

49 Broadway

Really? It's just jazz onstage.

50 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.

Really? Listen to Thy Art Is Murder, Aversions Crown, Make Them Suffer, and Internal Bleeding. "Reign of Darkness", "Controller", "Maelstrom", and "This Day I Fight" are good examples of deathcore. This whole "Core isn't metal" is messing stupid. To all the metalheads out there, GET OVER IT. Deathcore is just as good as death metal, thrash metal, speed metal, etc.

51 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

52 Rock Rock Rock music is a music genre that was created in the 1950s . The genre really got popular in the 60s, 70s and 80s . It generally consists of a guitar player, a drummer, bass player and singer . There are a lot of rock subgenres .

How is rock even on this list some of the biggest bands ever like led zeppelin, the Beatles, rush, the rolling stones, the who, Pink Floyd, jimi Hendrix, cream, guns n roses, queen, van halen, ac/dc, aerosmith, bon jovi, system of a down and the doors are some of the most talented bands ever to walk earth now I think death metal, heavy metal, punk, prog rock, rock obviously and even some black metal shouldn't be on the list because there all fantastic genres for the most part. just how is rock or any of the other genres I listed even on this list. rock is the best genre ever and can't be beat

I'm gonna list some awesome bands, Rush, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Guns and Roses, Black Sabbath, Queen. Why is this a bad genre

Rock is not the worst it should be first on the best.. - paasadani

It just... hurts. Physically and inside on my heart. - Ohno

53 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!

54 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

56 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.

So sick of the hat on progressive rock, King Crimson, Yes, Genesis and even some ELP is quite frankly some of the best music I've listened too. Honestly do people just dislike talent?

Really? Progressive rock is more complex than you think.

57 Polka

Makes me dance with moistness

This is the worst music ever, I would rather get a papercut in my eye than to listen to this.

Makes me cringe every time I hear it, really, why isn't this a top 10?

This genre should have been in the top ten. The accordian has to be the worst instrument ever invented. The person who invented it should have been strung up by the bollocks and then screwed with a chainsaw. Each note that comes out of an accordian sends sithers down my spine.

58 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. ...read more.

First of all, heavy metal is a subgenre of metal, and second, this genre has MILLIONS of listeners throughout the entire world and hundreds of thousands of bands. It's given us some classic songs such as "Iron Man", "Hot For Teacher", "Highway to Hell", "Wanna Rock N Roll All Nite", "come on Feel the Noize", etc. I don't understand why this is on here. This is the best genre to ever exist.

Oh God I hate metal, it's so loud. I personally don't like the (electric) guitar, and I hate the drums. Boxes can do a so much better sound than that. The reason why it's bad to me is because I'm a quiet person and I don't often hear loud, obnoxious noises, and emos. But this is just my opinion, I respect you do like metal, and don't get me wrong in this, it'll just sound like you're triggered for an opinion. - Ohno

The music is so loud, and it's extremely overrated. I hate the drums, the guitars, and is generally nuisance more than music. Metallica needs to drink bleach. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Loded Diper is the worst metal band ever - Lunala

59 National Socialist Black Metal

A complete disgrace to metal and reason why there are so many stereotypes about metal.Screw NSBM

That's disgusting.

Even worse than Black Metal - BorisRule

I think this and Communist Black Metal is the reason why BM gets a bad rep. - wrests

60 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.
