Music Genres List

The most comprehensive list of genres of music available on the Internet

Music comes in many different types and styles ranging from traditional rock music to world pop, easy listening and bluegrass. Many genres have a rich history or geographical significance, a cult following or music roots that go far beyond the 20th century.

What is a music genre?

The Music Genres List site covers many of the most popular styles of music, the site is becoming the definitive list of music genres on the Internet – thanks to you – and if you feel any music genres are missing (we’re sure there are many!) please send an email to add @ musicgenreslist dot com and we’ll add to get closer to completing the music list of genres.

And a big thank you to the folks who have already sent in suggestions. We haven’t added them all as some are not easily verified or differentiated from our current list (and we get many music genres suggestions that are duplicates), however all the genres we can research and confirm as valid or derivatives or existing genres or music types, we’ve added and have attributed by way of thanks.

Keep them coming! Take me to the list of music genres below!

Take our poll!

    You should also add Muzak, elevator music (which people say is different than Muzak and I think so too to an extent), new jack swing, and third wave ska. And yodeling, if it is considered a music genre. I don’t think you have any of these, at least that I could see.

    • admin
      October 17, 2016 at 1:34 am

      “Boogie-woogie is a musical genre that became popular during the late 1920s, but developed in African American communities in the 1870s. It was eventually extended from piano, to piano duo and trio, guitar, big band, country and western music, and gospel.”

      I hate rap, i dont understand how people who dont play instrument’s consider them selfs artists? They could be called performer’s. I appreciate any music who actually uses instuments. Instead of sitting and plaing with a computer. No rap artist will ever reach the height oh zeppelin or the Beatles. Elvis or even MJ, pink Floyd, the stones. Never, bevause there lack of real talent. Most don’t even write their own music.

        So a singer isn’t an artist? A rapper isn’t as well while they write theirnown lyrics that can really be peotry sometime and you’re saying rap isn’t art?

        I can name you many rappers that are really talentuous, write their own lyrics, compose, even some I know had create their own beats ^^
        And there is a hip-hop/rap/pop group right now that kill the charts, records and even went on UN to do a speach…
        Rappers can be genius as well.

      • October 6, 2018 at 5:05 pm

        IoI it does sometimes seem that way, but it’s amazing how they can do it so fast with that type of flow, a lot, sadly really aren’t good, just sometimes saying a couple of words and making up stupid words just for the rhyme is eye-rolling-ly nauseating,
        but, ones with a flow and a meaning in it, not just saying money one-hundred-eighty-times in a row, are spectacular,

        In my opinion, a singer who only sings others music, doesn’t play any instrument and doesn’t write , is worst.

      • Cole

        If an individual can take a computer and use it to create a beat or a tune through programs, that computer definitely then becomes an instrument of sorts. Also, I really doubt any rapper is trying to reach the same pinnacle that The Beatles or Led Zepplin achieved. That’s not their style of music so they’re climbing a different mountain to reach other heights away from people like you that hate something that’s different and doesn’t suit their tastes. I’m personally a huge fan of The Beatles, Led Zepplin, Tupac & Kendrick because the talent they produced/produce is obvious, even thought extremely different.

      • October 16, 2018 at 6:43 am

        Alec Garner, it’s absurd to say you hate Rap for the reason you mentioned above. The days of analog music are gone. It’s digital age and computer age, no one can change that. With all due respect to all the great artists you mentioned as greatest heights in music. But I’ve to tell you their songs were great then, not now that music has overgrown and magnified. It’s now music of today and tomorrows, not music of the past and yesteryears!

      “Hippie Rock” is basically Psychedelic and/or Acid Rock i.e. Greatful Dead and possibly Hendrix.

    I think house should be added to the list , as a genre on its own , because it has other sub-genres ,

    The sub genres should be:

    Funk House / Radio

    This is like electronica with a dull gospel background.

    Ghetto house

    This is like rap and electronica

    Ghost house

    This is like Ghost themed sounds with electronica

    House

    This is the normal sub genres of electronic

    Jazz house

    Spooky house

    This is like electronica with a soul background.

    Spooky funk House

    This is electrica with soul and gospel background ( e.g Sia bring it to me)

    Spooky rock house

    Electronica with soul and pop or rock ( e.g Katy Perry , Ur so gay)

    Fun house

    Like electronica and children’s song ( e.g pink funhouse)

    Electro house

    I think this list is more than wrong. And it’s quite wrong to put it at all, because this is spreading false information. For example, you are listing “christmas” as if it was an own genre — but infact a genre is not defined by the meaning of a tune. There are many Christmas songs that definitely and officially belong to the pop-genre for example. According to your list they make up an own genre..? And you are listing subgenres of Rock under another classification….? How does that make sense? I mean — you can “filter” genres — but not in the same breath as you are categorising them. It’s like making a list of mammals and all it’s species and amonst all the species and their subspecies, you start listing all animals that can swim. You wouldn’t do that either, would you? Please either correct this article or delete it.

      Pop rap (or hip pop) is a pop music influenced style of hip hop that contains pop-influenced melodic hooks and pop influenced melodies. The style became popular in the early 1990s, as hip hop music found commercial success. Pop rappers such as Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer were more radio-friendly than the explicit lyrics of gangsta rap such as Ice-T.

    Hip hop is a cultural movement that originated in the working class communities of New York City, United States, in the late 1970s.[1][2][2] DJ Afrika Bambaataa first outlined the five pillars of hip-hop culture: MCing, DJing, breaking, graffiti writing, and knowledge.[3][4][5][6] Other elements include beatboxing, hip hop fashion, and slang. Since first emerging in the South Bronx, hip hop culture has spread around the world.[7] When hip hop music began to emerge, it was based around disc jockeys who created rhythmic beats by looping breaks (small portions of songs emphasizing a percussive pattern) on two turntables, which is now more commonly referred to as sampling. This was later accompanied by “rap” (a rhythmic style of chanting or poetry more formally in 16 bar measures or time frames) and beatboxing, a vocal technique mainly used to imitate percussive elements of the music and various technical effects of hip hop DJs. An original form of dancing and particular styles of dress arose among lovers of this new music. These elements experienced considerable refinement and development over the course of the history of the culture.

    A minor quibble: Baroque music is different from classical music. Baroque music should hence not be a subcategory of classical because baroque dates back to 17th century, when pianos aren’t invented yet and harpsichords are used instead, which explains why most baroque music have detached notes (e.g. Bach, Handel). Classical, on the other hand, has rich harmonies and a lot of scale-like notes. Classical dates back to 18th century (e.g. Mozart, Beethoven)
    Hope this helps.

    Dear sir
    I think you overlooked some music types which are very ancient and very comprehensive, with their own melody and language. You only mentioned Ethio-jazz, which is a very small part of the types in that country. There are more than 11 styles which are unique and some inherent. I am doing a research on identifying and classifying those styles from the rest of the international music. So far I got successful result on identifying and classifying most of them. Let me give you the lists first. If you require I can give you sample songs with description of the style and other information. These styles use a pentatonic scale which is different form the diatonic scale that almost the whole world is using.
    I believe they need to be included in the list. Some of them existed since the 3rd century as religion songs.
    Amharic
    Tizita /Waltz in pentatonic scale
    Anchihoye
    Bati
    Ambasel
    Oromigna
    Guragigna
    Tigrigna
    Afarigna
    Somaligna (Not the country Somalia song)
    Ethiopian Orthodox church songs styles
    Ezel
    Ararat
    mem
    … and more

    Please contact me if you need any explanation and resource about the styles.

    Under your country genre I see you have Country Gospel. That is great however the correct name should be Inspirational Country, which includes Country Gospel. The Radio Station I worked at was Inspirational Country, which includes Artsit like George Strait, Josh Turner, Clay Walker, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, Reba, ECT and only there songs that are inspirational but also many many Independent Artist like Jenna Faith, Johnny Rowlett, Chris Hale, Chuck Day, Lisa Daggs ECT . Other Radio Stations like Heavens Country in Colorado, Camp meeting Radio in Knoxville, HLE Radio in Jennings Lousiana, not to mention KVVO 94.1 Inspirational Country Radio in Abilene Texas as well as tons of others are known as Inspirational Country Radio Stations. The Inspirational Country/ Gospel Is taking off in a major way and has been the last several years especially. Sunday’s Kind of Country Radio and Tv also are known for this out of Tenn.
    Country Gospel is great but the true name for it Inspirational Country Music. Its country music with a message, FAITH, FAMILY, COUNTRY whether that be an artist singing about the love of his wife or girlfriend to an artist singing about restoring a mustang ect. It all falls under Inspirational Country which includes the Country Gospel. It’s been around for years but has become well known in the Country Radio world from Nashville to Texas, to NY even over seas were people listen on line through there sites or Facebook live right from the studios, even the Artist do live Facebook stuff all the time. Just some FYI for ya. I will include one of the radio website for you in the field below. The main man there is Hunter a friend, check It out

    I don’t know if it is considered a subgenre of Black Metal, but there is DSBM, depressive suicidal black metal. I have been checking this out lately and it is quite different from the usual Black Metal. Xasthur would be an example of this.

    I wonder how carnatic music is just a sub genre in world music. One of the most complicated of all music is Carnatic music and the other one Hindustani, both Indian classical music. Indian classical music and indian popular music themselves make a genre. Its rich melody puffed with rich harmony and accompaniment. Some indian popular movie songs are so rich that they can be converted to a symphony. Unfortunately the world shows an attitude to india always which is seen in the case of music as well.
