Why is this on here?


What? - Lucretia

62 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.

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

Doesn't belong here. Try the best genres of music list, more fitting.

Not bad, but overrated as hell, especially on here. - DCfnaf

63 Alternative Alternative

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

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

Plain alternative sucks sometimes but alt-rock is amazing

This is just too cheesy.

Even worse than Black Metal - BorisRule

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

65 Pop Rap

Those annoying hip hop dance songs you hear like Crank that and Whip Nae Nae. - naFrovivuS

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

Soulja. Boy.

66 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

67 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

68 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?

No, no, no. This ruined rock music.

69 Tropical House

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

70 Alternative Metal Alternative Metal Alternative metal is a music genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres not normally associated with metal.
71 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.

How did this get here? Noise is a very good genre of music.

72 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.

73 Progressive Metal

Worst, not at all, DREAM THEATER, enough said

Prog metal requires a lot of talent - zxm

I guess it's alright.

74 Art Punk
75 Punk Jazz
76 Nintendocore

Just checked out out recently. It's so surreal. But it's also pretty cool.

77 Indie Rock

This term no longer has much of a real meaning. What is called indie rock today seems to fall somewhere on a spectrum between punk/noise influenced sounds, retro-fetishism, and nerdy pop music sung by people who sound like they are about to fall asleep. In fact, a lot of what I've investigated that gets tagged as indie rock strikes me as little more than another form of pop music, and it strikes me that a lot of the music is actually pretty mainstream in its popularity, so the label no longer makes sense. On the less pop end of it, a good chunk of it just sounds like garage style bands that can hardly play their instruments and purposefully make a fetish of lo-fi or unpleasant sounds. In either case it always ends up coming off as very boring and inauthentic. This genre puts me to sleep, everything about it emanates a lack of imagination, creativity, and talent.

The Arctic Monkeys, Palma Voilets, Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers.. Indie Rock is great, more guitar music on the radio please better than auto-cue rubbish and Dub-step.

This is the worst thing that ever existed in Alternative music, and around the Rock in general.

I do not understand why so many people are considering this as great today, if everything is just a mass of crude, tasteless and boring sounds. The bands of this genre have no talent, all they do is mutter front of a microphone, and guitarist with drummers only makes a stressful environment musical sounds horrible and rudimentary.

"Indie" haha... however is just mainstream this time.


Just any type of indie music makes me gag

78 Big Room House

The worst electo house subgenre that just uses simple beats and easy to make genre that all you need is just to fiddle around with things and bam, there you go

Why is this so low? It should be at least top ten...

Oh god, I cannot stand this genre. - wrests

The sequence of this genre:

Riser... bass drop with snare... duck duck duck, duck duck duck, duck duck duck, duck... (all in triplets with over compressed, sightly distorted kick)

I enjoyed so many types of electronic music (trance, techno, progressive, non generic dubstep, chiptune...), except this one, I have no idea why people would getting high while listening to this type of music, just a bunch of dotted super keys played repeatedly with kick drums, what able to be made in fl studio under 15 minutes.

I wanna know what is value of this type of music...

79 Christian Contemporary

Ridiculously repetitive and predictable chord progressions, repetitive subject matter, requires very little talent to write and perform, occasionally some decent and unique moments happen, and some vocal performances are good, but as a whole, it's a very vapid genre.

This is already on here - FloydtheCat

80 Djent

I can't believe Djent is so low. It is the meme of metal; a genre that was invented throughout the internet. Look at how many people made fun of this genre, that's enough proof to see djent is the most laughable genre out there. It's not even a genre; it's just a picking technique that's been used by new "metal bands". The only legitimate "metal djent" band is Meshuggah. Bands like Periphery aren't even metal because they have a vocalist that uses bad hardcore punk screaming and switches to pop cleans.

Djent isn't even a genre.

Djent can be bad ass sometimes, animals as leader could be considered djent, maybe

Listen, Djentlemen, the is Djust a meme. - SoldierOfFortune
