I'm not sure if this's been done before, but I'm calling out for silly genres and the bands that belong in them. Remember: You don't need to be insulting to be funny.

For starters: This local band that played at a Spoon show called Snowman is either Hellbilly of Death-country

Also: Muse = NeoClassical MetalCorePunk HyperRock (according to Rage)

Wierdcore, Lawnmower Metal, Speedfolk, Librariancore and kaosmusik all instantly spring to mind.

Accoustic black metal springs to mind.

Of course, when you have a genre that was invented as a joke as part of an Anal Cunt side project, that's to be expected.

Some brilliant motherfucker on the internet referred to Blueberry Boat thusly: "Prog-blues rock opera in underwater space."

Yeah, I'll go with that. Goddamn I love that album.

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum are pretty much (I have decided) Empty-Museum-Avant-Metal-Arabian-Log-Orchestra-Winnie-The-Pooh-Core on XTC.

Quote from: Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
Eaters of the soil, take us into the ground (Death by Worm).
Eaters of the air, drive us through the blue (Death by Sparrow).
Eaters of the sea, take us into the green (Death by Eel).
Eaters of the scraps, take us in our beds (Death by Dog).
Eaters of the soil, take us into the ground (Death by Sand).
Eaters of the air, drive us through the sky (Death by Sparrow).
Eaters of the green, take us into the sea (Death by Water).
Eaters of the scraps, take us in our beds (Death by Stone).
Death by Silence.
Death by Sorrow.


I love them so much.

Oh, Man. I totally forgot about the (entirely fictitious) mantis-core band Dethspasm from scarygoround. Then I saw Shihad's (nee Pacifier) new video clip...and it is totally Mantis-core!

Praise Be (To Our Mantis Overlord)!

(also featured are Calypso Metal and Deth Dub)

Re-seconded with extra "fuck"s for good measure.

In the year 2000 (in the yeaaaarrrr two-thousaaaaaaannd) people will stop concocting stupid-ass "genres" that cover exactly one album and use that energy to do something socially useful, like build houses for the homeless.  Also, people will stop saying go for it when they find out that "it" is a goat's testicle.

Nominations for stupid-ass genre names that should have never been:

Trip-Hop Jesus H. Christ, for marketoids to invent this bastard child of a term to describe down-tempo fusion coming out of Bristol is offensive.  The fact that most of the bands thereby named either went to disco, or to top-40 style Gwen Stefani influenced pop shows that this term must be under some manner of evil curse.

IDM So entrenched now you can't not use it, but the mind rebels about how this mailing list generated joke term ended up being the label under which good electronica gets pigeonholed when two of the three letters are most often incorrect.  (It ain't particularly intelligent.  It sure as hell isn't dance.  There's honest debate about whether it's music but I'll let that slide.  I have a feeling that someone said precisely this in the electronica thread, so yo, sorry 'bout the plagiarism)

Illbient Thank-you DJ Spooky.  In the future, everyone will be their own genre for 15 minutes.

Does anyone remember electroclash? It sends a little shiver down my spine just to talk about it. I just remembered it the other day when I was trying to explain Lesbians on Ectasy to my mom. That didn't help.

Magnet did this long article in their year-end 2003 issue if I remember correctly. That's not something to be proud of.

Woo.  Looking that up on wikipedia made me vomit a little bit.

Seriously, the community needs to take it's collective thumb out of its ass, wash it off, and start waving it around.  This genre-mania makes this shit sound way more complicated than it really is.  Having marketing people determine stupidly named absurdly arbitrary classifications is a bad taxonomy system.

How do you tell indie pop from indie rock?  I have no idea, but what I do is count the guitars.  More than one and it's indie rock.  Am I right?  How the fuck should I know?  It's not like you can say: "Ahhh, this guy took a classic 4/4 beat generated by drum machine, looped in some distorted guitar, his original vocals, and the sound of a glockenspiel falling down a flight of stairs -- also he's from Gloucester and a real big fan of My Bloody Valentine, and his lyrics are anti-establishment and whiny -- I dub thee electro-shoegazer!"

Well I mean you can say it -- but you'll sound like an asshole.

EDIT: Oh fuck me, it's been done by you-know-who.  I suck at satire.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

Screamo.

yes, I'm old and out of touch, and this may even be spelled incorrectly, but I heard a guy in a cafe discussing sub-genres of emo, (which by itself makes me want to claw at my eyes and wail to an unforgiving God), but the fact that he could say he was a big fan of "Screamo" with a completely straight face blew me away.

It may even be completely viable (hee hee hee) but it just sounds silly. It's like if Metallica was called "Mr. Pilkington's Happy-Time family Hour Band". They might still rock, but it would just be .....silly.

Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas for the win.  It is literally the only Christmas album I have ever heard that I enjoyed and would willingly listen too.  But yah, the rest of those fucking songs that they inundate you with in every mall in the country are inexplicably horrible.

okay:

minimalist electroclash: in reference to the new vnv nation album.

nu-goth: uh...what?  and anything else with nu- as a prefix, for that matter.  enough already.

powernoise: sounds funny, but the name is really appropriate.  bands like iszoloscope, antigen shift, most any on the frozen empire media label.

deathpop: re: orgy, zeromancer, etc.  again, funny but fitting(at least in the case of the latter band)

shoegazer: fitting yes, but a little insulting, i guess.  kind of like making bartholomew the patron saint of shoemakers because he ws killed by having his skin removed.

coldwave: the defintion kills me as it's so contradictory: "highly technical mechanical percussion with the angst and energy of punk rock"...or something to that effect.  and the name started out as a joke.  blame the invisible records people.
