nu-metal (Korn, Limp Bizkit, ICP)
hair metal (Poison, Whitesnake, Ratt)
post-grunge (Creed, Hinder, Nickelback)
pop-punk (Green Day, Good Charlotte, etc)
eyeliner emo (Panic! at the Disco, MCR)
gangsta rap (50 Cent, Chingy)
Christian (P.O.D., Jars of Clay, Michael W Smith)
21st century post-punk ripoffs (Editors Want Interpol)
pop country (Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney)
after thinking about it some I probably should have voted gangster rap just because some of the rappers are smart enough to know that they are perpetuating negative black stereotypes to a largely white audience in order to make a buck. The modern black face way to go fuckers. Yeah, I'm looking at you 50.
The White Stripes 9/18
I chose the post-grunge option...although I hate christian rock (isn't creed chistian rock?) just as much. The reason I chose post-grunge is because I have heard more of it compared to christian rock. The only christian rock I have heard is on those infomercials for christian rock compilations.
If jesus ever came back to earth I would personally re-kill him.
you forgot christmas music
10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater (?), 10/18 Culture Collide, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale, 11/7 Warpaint @ Echoplex, 11/12 Blonde Redhead @ Fonda
Just because Scott Stapp did an Eddie Vedder impression doesn't make it post-grunge. It had nothing to do with grunge. Creed sounds more like Live than it does Pearl Jam, and Live isn't exactly grunge.
Also, why in the fuck wouldn't Creed be in Christian Rock? P.O.D. is nu-metal, to boot.
Creed and Nickelback can be considered post-post-grunge. I would say that Live is considered post-grunge, as is Bush. Grunge however is the genre with the least amount of bands that were HUGE.
List of grunge bands that were HUGE:
Alice In Chains
STP (it's stretch to call them grunge)
Core was definitely grunge, and most of Purple. They just also delved into other vibes--which I personally think was their better work.
Live can't really be post-grunge cause they were going on at the same time. They were just non-grunge rock of the era.
yeah I guess I just consider Live post-grunge because Throwing Copper, which was their seminal album, came out in 1994 as did Sixteen Stone and Bush is pretty much the definition of post-grunge.
I fucking hate bullshit sub-genre definitions. From wiki:
By 1993 some of the first post-grunge bands (notably Bush, Collective Soul, Everclear, Our Lady Peace and Live) had been signed to major labels and were beginning to garner mainstream attention.
This is horseshit. They were just other alternative rock in the case of Live and Bush. That other shit wasn't actually popular for another year or two at least.
Collective Soul still has a respectably large and dedicated fanbase. I agree though sub-genre shit is shit.
Boy-bands (Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, 98 Degrees)
nu-R&B - yes I just made that up for lack of a better name - (Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Rhianna)
The artists in your "nu-R&B" genre are at lest respectable.
I voted for other because there is something good that came out of each genre at one time or another.
And no one say anything bad about the Deftones. Chino is the man.
I love music, and I hate vowels.
the deftones are solid why are we hating on them
The original arguement was about perpetuating stereotypes.
And maybe rap is only a part of it, but you cant deny..
well... shit like this:
What's the world coming to?
nu metal>>>eyeliner emo
post grunge>>>eyeliner emo

I voted EMO. The Gangster Rap one is kind of weird, cause the artists that you chose are more like commercial club rap. When i think of Gangster rap, I think of rap from the 90's. Nu-Metal is waaaaay better than Emo, or pop country. God, I really hate almost all these groups.. Except for the Post-Punk Genre.
LOL.. She Wants Revenge and Interpol sound almost IDENTICAL. I don't get how you can like one and not the other.
it's finally happening
Röyksopp, FC Kahuna, Télépopmusik, The Knife, RJD2, Futue Sound of London, The Avalanches, 808 State, Zero 7, Tycho, Mr. Scruff
You should try thinking a little deeper and consider the fact that until NWA and The Chronic started showing up in white teenagers' stereos you didn't hear too much about just how serious street gang violence was/is, did you? Perhaps by frightening the middle-class by promoting the gang lifestyle they did a lot more to draw useful attention to the problem than any positive message music could have.
SNARE IS NEVER ON 1 AND 3, DUMBSHITS. They have white people rhythm.
