41 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

Anything and everything horror related does NOT belong in rap. Death metal or black metal would do.

42 Reggae

Wasn't bob marley 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.

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

Pretty good, Bob Marley is awesome. - cjWriter1997

43 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.

44 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 music like kesha is awesome, I like bubblegum pop.

45 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

Rock sucks! Listen to some pop

46 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 good! - Neonco31

47 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.

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

51 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.

52 Pop Rock

I hate this genre, pop and rock are a bad combination, especially Maroon 5. - 05yusuf09

Screw Pop-rock.

A contradiction within itself.

Bands like OneRepublic, Maroon 5, and The Beatles, define pop-rock. And therefore, it isn't a terrible genre. - SwagFlicks

21 Pilots, they might be at least decent if not good enough - Neonco31

54 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.

55 Tropical House

It's all the same stuff. Nothing changes from a song to another, oldstyle EDM was way more enjoyable.

56 Jazz Jazz

Jazz isn't for everyone, but at least it isn't obnoxious and uncomfortable to listen to like pop, rap, and country. For people who like music to lower their blood pressure, this is the perfect genre. Also, I personally don't care for lyrics when listening to music, so jazz works wonderful for me personally. I will say, even though I love jazz, there are a lot of songs that sound the exact same or similar. It's a universal fault however in a lot of music. TL;DR: Jazz is fantastic, but I can understand why some people don't like it. It produces the opposite effect of what most modern radio/pop star/rock musician produce.

This is the most skill-required genre, I guess... I don't like it that much, but I wouldn't put it on the list. - Flav

Jazz is an amazing genre. It ranges from making you feel a spectrum of emotions to making you respect the person who is able to make you feel that way. - SwagFlicks

Wait Jazz is relaxing! It's classic style, it should be lower! - Neonco31

58 Easy Listening

Why is this on here?

Eh.

What? - Lucretia

59 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

60 Dirty Rap

It's genre title sums it all up. "Dirty Rap". What is dirty rap? Rap music with dirty language!

Lyrics to a dirty rap song:

A horse fell in the mud
All I have to say is "oh crud"
Now I gotta clean him up
Put the soapy water in the bucket, not the cup

That's literally dirty rap music.
