I refuse to acknowledge any new musical genres until IANA weighs in. The tables are full.

If you are starting a Working Group, ping me. I can help.

  1. It's kind of a shoe-gaze death-mariachi choir, but with banjos and harpsichords.

    Shame this hasn't been updated for years. It did a good job of classifying electronic music at least.

      Ah yes, Flash out of date's Guide to Electronic Music.

      I had forgotten what a rabbit-hole that guide is. I just spent 30 minutes clicking around, and I've seen it many times before.

    I'm partial to the Team Love master list of fake future musical genres.

    Damn it; what am I going to do with my new witchvapor band? Our music is a fusion between witch house and vaporwave.

    I'm fine with genres so long as they don't invade physical space. Annoying though when you want to pop in to a music store to pick up a quick disk and you have to figure out which bin to rifle through. Really annoying when you discover they decided to file it under "rock".

      This used to annoy me beyond measure at a high street music chain, but I can no longer remember the particular idiotic split that used to gall me which is odd as I must have moaned about it to so many people.

    • Ben says:

      Also annoying is filing !!! under C.

      Alphabetical sorting by pronunciation would be the death of our language.
