Hip Hop for me.

Default Whatabout......

I think every genre has good music, why does it always has to be about what's best?
In my opinion most music you see at MTV has nothing to do with Punk, Emo, Rock or Alternative. IT'S ALL POP Music ok, if you like you also may call it teenager rock.
If you want to find out about music go to small club and bars, that's the place where it all happens!!!!!
What you see at MTV or same kind of music stations is just a commercialized and poor ripp-off thang!!!!!!

Very tough question, and that's why there are so many genres, diversification baby. It's tougher than asking for your favorite color, for music is mood, passion, and emotion, and it just depends on where your head is at the moment.

^ good points. but favorite color is easy, orange all the way! I picked rock, punk, metal, indie and alternative. Those are just the ones that I listen to the most, but I can honestly say that there is at least one song that I love from each of these genres.

I agree with comments above, but I voted for Jazz, Blues (basis for almost all the others, and I play in a blues band) and Rock (I also play in a Rock band).

I would like to say that a "best" genre of music does not exist, and that this poll is based on mayority, so therefore what this poll basically is saying is that the genre that people like the most is the best?!?! What the hell??? ok just wanted to say this reminds me of racism....there is NO best, it is all a matter of opinion...
