Which music genre has the silliest name?!

Post by pineappletribe » Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:34 am

Well - the UK Funky thread & Beagles' comment made me wonder on the daftest name for a music genre.....???



I am going for 'Doom Core' as being the most ridiculous (name-wise though the music was obviously sh!te too) :lol:

There's a rock night called 'Face Melter' at the pub next to my work that has some amazing genre and band names on the flyers. Stuff like:

Terrorcore
WitchFucker
Cyber metal

It cracks me up every time I go in there :lol:

haha yes I remember Handbag.
Loving that witchfucker name lol

to be honest I think some of the genre names with 'new'/'nu' in front of them are kinda silly because alot of these are old now. for example 'new' skool breaks

Intelligent drum and bass is one that always used to make me laugh, I mean why!? Whats so intelligent about it!! Are people like Bukem trying to say they are more clever than say dj hype!?

Go for some more well known ones...

Speed garage

Grime

Death metal

Happy jungle
