Top Ten Worst Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

62 Mumble Rap

What's that? I mean, I've heard people sound like that but I had no idea it was a genre. - lovefrombadlands

This should be #1, with trap music on #2 - jameshoward

Just a disgrace to all of music

Great now folk is above mumble rap,thanks a lot TROOOLLS - Himalayansalt

63 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.

64 Bubblegum Pop

This item is already on the list, 3 above this - FloydtheCat

I agree, it is VERY annoying music, though - FloydtheCat

Annoying like teen pop. - Lucretia


I really dislike this genre because if emo uses three chords, these people must use one. If country has stupid lyrics, then this genre will amaze you. It's actually not pop most people hate, but this meaningless bubblegum thingy. And the auto tune. And the blatant fake happiness. Listen, if you're an artist, I respect you. But if music is supposed to convey emotion, then this genre conveys those people you never did like in high school.

65 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.

66 Electronic Dance Music

This genre of music is stupid and unintelligent pretty much all edm are structured in a 3 Bar melody. There is no thought or intelligence at all a disgrace to the music industry

67 Easy Listening

This type of music is so bad I literally cry when I listen to it. Not in a good way. They are tears of agony.

Why is this on here?


68 National Socialist Black Metal

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

Nazi-Black metal basically. Anyways the only bad kind of real metal. - Lucretia

That's disgusting.

Even worse than Black Metal - BorisRule

69 Hardcore Punk

Nah, it's a good genre. Don't vote for this. - cjWriter1997

Punk... and hardcore rock... don't vote for this

70 Country Folk

Mumford & sons, anything that comes under folk/country where I am literally falling asleep/want to hit my head against a brick wall as it is SO BORING I'd rather listen to a meditation cd filled with whale sounds to fall asleep than this 'genre'! Bring back Soundgarden :-D

71 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

72 Pop Rock

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

Screw Pop-rock.

A contradiction within itself.

What the hell is pop rock doing on this list?

Quit mixing genres that should not be mixed. Also some hair metal bands can be called pop rock - Lucretia

73 Alternative Alternative

Whoever put this here should have their brain (if they even have one) examined. My favourite genre!

Plain alternative sucks sometimes but alt-rock is amazing

Whoever said that OneRepublic sucks is a mental rapist with no music taste.

What's wrong with alternative? Nothing is wrong with OneRepublic, Halsey, Melanie Martinez, Twenty One Pilots... - lovefrombadlands

74 Alternative Metal Alternative Metal Alternative metal is a music genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres normally associated with metal.

Eh, a bit. Some of it. - Lucretia

75 Brostep

Ok, first of all, I'm glad this isn't at the top of the list. Second, this is included in EDM, so how could EDM be worse than Brostep. This list needs to be seriously fixed. The fact that Dubstep is apparently so much worse is actually quite amusing considering that it is also included in EDM. But you know, whatever? Right? It doesn't matter that somebody who doesn't know what they're talking about is making this list. Whatever.

76 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. 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

Why heavy metal is even here it has been rated the best genre and besides it has some of the best bands like Metallica,iron maiden, black sabbtah, megadeth etc

Metallica- has a decent drummer, a not bad guitar player, some of the best bass players ever, and the best singer in Thrash Metal. SO yeah, it really does suck - SoldierOfFortune

Where are those bieber fans,i am going to kill them all,they need to see real taste of music-Disturbed,Rammstein,Metallica,Slipknot-these are legends! they are better than BIEBER-GAYIBER

77 Noise Music

Not all noise music is void of rhythm and melody. But some of it is, and it's understandable that people wouldn't see the musicianship behind it. I won't try to convince anyone it's extremely hard to make (It isn't), but some people enjoy it, and for that reason alone, I believe it is music.

As far as I can see this is literally just harsh noise, no structure or flow at all from what I've heard. but at the end of the day all music is noise it just depends on how you interpret what you're hearing I guess..

It depends on what you're expecting. Noise music beats up anything one knows from traditional musical arrangements, but there are few genres that can make you feel as laid back as noise if you listen to it at the right moment and a fitting mindset.

Noise Rock is pretty great, Noise Black Metal is mighty savage but pure Noise? Not feeling it.

Why do people say dubstep is just noise, if that's true then this is 10000% not music, its really annoying

78 Ska

You got to listen to sublime and the older stuff like The English Beat/General public.

Ska can be pretty cool. The older stuff is better than a lot of the crap put out in the mid to late 90s. I like ska that sticks more to their jazz and jamaican roots. 2 Tone, early third wave, and first wave is mainly what I listen to.

Reel Big Fish, Mighty Mighty Bostones, Big D and The Kids Table, Streetlight Manifesto, The Aquabats, Catch 22, and No Doubt... All terrible bands, hm. Must just be a terrible genre of music.

Whats ska? - Lucretia

79 Progressive Metal

Worst, not at all, DREAM THEATER, enough said

Prog metal requires a lot of talent - zxm

Never really cared for prog, but it's not bad.

Should not be here at all. - naFrovivuS
