Electronica has the most, but since I see more arguing about it when I watch metal videos on YouTube I voted for Metal. I recall something along the lines of "IT'S not deathcore, it's blackened death metal you idiot".
Your eyes were never yet let in to see the majesty and riches of the mind, but dwell in darkness; for your God is blind.

every genre of music has a crazy amount of subgenres...the reason i think metal is so interesting is because of how die hard its fans are about supporting such a specific subgenre. this thread proves this point.

if i saw an electronic fan and made fun of the fact that he only listens to a certain subgenre i don't think he would really make such a fuss out of it. if you ask a black metal fan wtf the difference between black and death metal is they are going to get really pissy and probably not be friends with you. now...in metal's defence i CAN see a difference between black and death metal...i'm just making a point.

the other big thing that sets metal apart is how STRICT they are with the labeling. i'll give any music a chance and if a band is trying to grow by changing a little, i'm all for it. metal fans will totally leave a band in the dust for introducing a line of clean vocals or using a thrash riff when it should be black.

not that any of this is bad...just very interesting. watch metal: a headbanger's journey...its like a culture all its own...

after looking at this list above me (and i knew on ly half what was on that list), it's metal. i was  going to put other since subgenres are not limited  and music keeps evolving, but it's hard to say wh en looking at vegan edgecore, viking metal, stoner  metal, and 2-step.
