42 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

43 Dirty Rap

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

Rap with swearing is every rap song, which is rap which is its own submission - Lucretia

Almost every rap song is dirty and has curse words. What is this? - AnimeDrawer

Dirty rap is pretty much just some guy shouting swear words - FloydtheCat

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

Soulja. Boy.

This exists? Sounds errible - Lucretia

47 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

I think bubblegum music is kind of annoying. Also, I don't know what half of these are. - lovefrombadlands

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

That's a gum product.

48 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.

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 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

Grunge tried to kill the metal Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
They failed, as they were thrown to the ground - SoldierOfFortune

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.

I thought this would be so much higher because of all of the criticism it receives. I’m not saying it’s bad though, I love deathcore. - HysteriXxD

52 Broadway

Really? It's just jazz onstage.

53 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

Absolute garbage. Bring Me The Horizon sucks, Bullet For My Valentine sucks, Emmure sucks, and Attila sucks even worse.

54 Speedcore

No way should Speedcore be on this list! For the simple fact it isn't music. It's indistinguishable, pointless noise that has no heart, no soul and definitely no place among normal, compos mentis human beings. - Britgirl

How in the world is this not on the list? It's worse than any other genre out there. The sole purpose of this genre is to see how high you can but the bpm at in production. THAT'S IT. The fact that people enjoy 980 bpm buzzing sound for 3-5 minutes at a time baffles me. Unlike dubstep, Prog House, and techno, this genre takes the crown of the most uncreative bullcrap ever created. Listen to The Quick Brown Fox and the Einstein song and you will follow what I am saying. - RazorBaby

I beg to differ. I don't know.

55 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!

56 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

57 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!

58 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 Trance

Why is this on there?

I think this genre is very great, because it has beautiful melodies, heavenly sounds... I mean it can sound very relaxing and it can make me dance.

NOBODY said it was possible to hate trance. NOBODY. This list is inaccurate.

Excuse me? This genre is great (well, to me at least) - wrests

Dubstep with no drop essentially, its trash.

60 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
