Top Ten Worst Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Dance Punk
102 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.

103 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.

104 Dubstep Jazz

The hell is this?

Hey, I love dubstep jazz. It is way better than ordinary dubstep. - waraypiso

105 Mumble Rap

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

106 Skate Punk

Blink. 182. Sucks.

107 Folk

While I can sort of respect some of the early faces of this genre, overall it comes off as cliche to me that it is highly unimaginative, boring, and generally requires a low level of musical talent. The idea of having a message is used to cloak the significance of its musical hollowness. Anyone with an acoustic guitar they've only been playing for 2 months and a diary full of autobiography can easily get their foot in the door in the singer-songwriter portion of this genre. The musical ideas are cliche and dull to a point that its pretty much all the same song.

Folk is one of the greatest genres out there the traditional cowboy folk was amazing and then there's contemporary folk like Bob Dylan & Joan Baez two of the greatest musicians to ever walk this earth

Stairway to Heaven is folk-rock, and it's viewed by most as the greatest song of all time

This has been around almost as long as humans have!

108 Goregrind

Just by looking at the lyrics of some gore grind songs just really makes me really sick. There's a band called Intense hammer rage (I think it's rage) and their lyrics are highly revolting, disgusting and repulsive.

Goregrind is a genre so abysmal and morally shameful that it makes death metal and rap almost respectable. There's absolutely nothing worse than goregrind. Nothing.

So it has songs about blood, guts, and violence?

I'm ok with the lyrics, but the sound off it is awful

109 Worship
110 Post-hardcore

This baffles me. These bands with the stupid hair and makeup think they are the successors to the Hardcore Punk legends like Black Flag, Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Discharge, Agent Orange, etc.This is just emo garbage. The lyrics aren't at all what punk/hardcore is about. This is just a modern, depressed version of Glam Metal. Simple music for simple people - ryanrimmel

Hey Billy Talent is not that bad

More post hardcore is getting better. Think of Hands Like Houses. They're really good. Quite a bit is bad, but CTE is one of my favorite bands and they're pretty good

The post hardcore bands that try to play metalcore like bmth and aa is ruined metalcore

111 Brazilian/Baile Funk

In america, the ghetto people have gangsta rap or hip hop. In Brazil, we get this bull, this is FAR WORSE than rap music, if this is even music at all, and the lyrics are usually nasty as hell. I am Brazilian too.

This genre is the definition of (s-word)

The beats are overused and repetitive, the lyrics are way too obscene... I am from Brazil don't even think this is real music. An example of this kind of crap is one popular hit called ''My dick loves you''. seriously. WHY. - lesanae

Baile funk is good. Artists like Sángo, DPVKZ, etc. make a cool danceable, trap baile funk music. - waraypiso

112 Scene

I only know of this being a stupid personality trait that people call themselves. All these "titles" are really dumb. Why can't someone just be a person instead of a scene kid or a rebel or an emo. It's so lame. - FloydtheCat

hey lets take something that everyone who looks exactly like us did but play it a fret down that is all scene music is

Scene is a subculture, not a musical genre. I personally consider it to somewhat be a ridiculous form of (pre) teen pseudo-rebellion... At least judging from the scene kids I've gotten to know.

113 Celtic punk
114 Post-punk
115 Dangdut

Well, I'm neutral to dangdut. It's not so great, but I think it's better than all kinds if pop songs these days combined - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

The beat makes no sense, I don't even like the singer voice, everybody should know this genre - ComelCumil

For those who don't know what that is? I recommend you Google it or something else...

116 Goth Rock

Not a real genre, your probably thinking of grunge

117 Mariachi
118 Hardcore
119 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).

And people say that pop fans judge other people who dislike the genre. - DCfnaf

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 will fail if you don't have the real passion of playing music..rap doesn't take any talent to make a song.. - nooreldeen

Stop commenting, it's upvoting it - SoldierOfFortune

120 Funeral Doom

Never heard of it, but the name alone is awful - theOpinionatedOne

Yeah this sucks. It's funeral organs played over a slow metal riff, with soft death growls. If you have depression or something, do yourself a favor and don't listen to this - ryanrimmel

Really? Just because the songs are slow and last for nearly 10 minutes? Get a life. Listen to Frowning and DOOM:VS.
