42 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

Pretty good, Bob Marley is awesome. - cjWriter1997

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 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

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 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

Alright, this is kinda bad. I understand people like or hate metal but people here CAN'T respect opinions of metal haters, they just say they're retards, heartless, should kill themselves or whatever else? Not everyone has to like metal! - Neonco31

49 Emocore

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

"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.

50 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.

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.

52 Metalcore

In general, taking metal and all its subgenres, watering it down, and feeding it to the masses. Oftentimes it has clean vocals, no gutturals, but there is screaming. Add a dash of punk, sometimes thrash, and sometimes crybaby lyrics.

Of course there are some great bands that have adapted elements of the genre into their sound, one example is the band "Darkest Hour". Although I would say they are more melodic death metal than metalcore. Their album "Deliver Us" is a fantastic record.

Good example of a crap band is Bring Me The Horizon. Lyrics that could have been written up by a 9-year-old who just learned his first few swearwords. Excessive amount of breakdowns. Poor musicianship. Of course, teen (and sometimes older) girls love this band, but it's more about their lead singer Oli Sykes. They scream for him, and he virtually has no talent. Oh, but he can do really high-pitched screams, you say? Well, that would be good if it actually sounded any good. ...more

I voted only to vote for the terrible wanna-be metal bands like Atreyu/Bullet For my Valentine/Bring Me The Horizon. I have no problem with early Metallica Hardcore bands like Hatebreed, nor can I really hate on Killswitch Engage. But honestly, most Metalcore bands are bands that wanted to be metal yet also successful, and that's what they came up with.

I agree that there are too much bands calling theirselves metalcore and are just wannabe-metallers, but for me that's not the real metalcore, its just abuse.
When I think of metalcore I think of: as I lay dying, august burns red, parkway drive, trivium, unearth. great bands who made awesome music.

I see the point why this is on the list, but I think the REAL metalcore doesn't deserve this. - Flav

This is the lowest of the low in Metal, yes even worse than Nu Metal. - htoutlaws2012

54 J-Pop

Some of it is alright. Rest is terrible.

This is actually my favorite music genre. Being an anime fan, I'm exposed to a lot of anime songs sung by famous J-Pop singers. I really like J-Pop music artists like LiSA, Eir Aoi, and GARNiDELiA, but I think what makes most people hate J-Pop is that most J-Pop singers sound all squeaky and autotuned over 9000. But trust me, there are some good J-Pop singers out there. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm more into J-rock, but some of J-pop is good. It's the J-pop idols that ruin it all (you know, the cutesy chimpmunk voiced girls like AKB48, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, etc.) but Jpop such as Nana Mizuki, Kalafina (though Kalafina isn't really pop, but they are pretty popular, so...), FictionJunction (same as Kalafina, not really pop...) is good. But J-rock is life.

55 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

56 Polka

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.

57 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 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's overrated as hell because this site is 99% rock elitists. That's why Pop is #1. Thumb me down and prove my point. - DCfnaf

59 Contemporary Christian

One word: boring!

Religious songs are boring.

I'm a Christian, but I honestly do find this very stale. Almost the same exact sound, no uniqueness.

Liberals get butthurt because they think people actually believe there's a god, no one would be that stupid!
