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 of existing genres or music types, we’ve added those contributors to our list of Music Genres Contributors with massive thanks.

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

It takes a lot to keep this current & updated… if this list is of value to you, you use in study, or in your business… please consider buying me a cup of tea! Cheers
