Well, I say take an existing genre and put your own spin on it. thes what me and my Surf band do. Our influences include, blues, punk, reggae, techno, jazz, standards, oldies... We add in a healthy dose of rock and roll to our instrumentals and the debate rages on what genre we really are.

You're all wrong. All that you need to do to create a new genre is come up with a double barrelled name, for example:

'Nosecore Group-I Metal'

And come up with a scene dress code, so that all of the kids who flock to the new genre can conform with each other in a totally non-conformist way. This could involve maybe having one eyebrow shaved off completely and wearing a monocle, while also sporting a bleached cru-cut, all-black clothes with pink trainers. If a bunch of bands all start dressing in the same way then the kids will pick it up pretty soon and hey presto, new genre!

As far as I can tell, genres have less to do with music than they do with geographical location and dress sense.

To make a new genre, all you have to do is suck at your instruments, and do the best you can to suck ass in new and creative ways, after all, how else do you think punk was born?

You're might not be far off the mark there. Do you ever get the feeling that nowadays punk has stopped being an actual style of music and is now a prefix which is added musical styles to describe bands that aren't very good with their instruments?

i.e. punk-rock = a band who try to play rock but aren't very good at it
ska-punk = a band who try to play ska but aren't very good at it

And so on. Any comments?

haha.....no matter how different you try to make your style.....everyone will classify you as a genre that already exists.

there are too many subgenres of subgenres to go around making up new ones.

Nu - metal did pretty well but thats because they're at the bottom of the barrel and couldn't make it any other genre than "new - metal".

idiot, punk rock STARTED as a band who wasnt good with their instruments, the ramones, and they considered themselves to be more of a bubblegum pop band in their early days. today punk rock simply built and branched on that simplicity. theres a god damn plethora of talented punk musicians, and no, punk isnt just added as a prefix, ass, ska-punk is music with both the elements of ska and punk rock, holy christ who knew. and about the playing to 14 year old girls thing, i think you've got modern POP-rock bands in mind, eg. simple plan, good charlotte etc etc.

The ramones didn't start punk you idiot.

MC5? Stooges?

They influenced and punk slowly evolved then came out as a movement.
