Default Strangest sub genres you know of.

What are the strangest sub genres you know of?
The one I'm about to post is not only a strange one, but a terrible one aswell:Pornogrind.
Bad Grindcore that's always about weird sexual subjects. Only ususally the vocals don't even seem like they're speaking a language, yet the lyrics are there to read online. The Album covers are ususally disgusting, and the entire genre is to blame for some of the worst band names I've ever come across.

Just listen to this amazing song, and read the intellectual lyrics in the discription: (Totallynotbeingsarcastichere)

Torso****- Raped By Elephants (Lyrics&Pics) - YouTube

Yeeeeeeah...

You guys got any strange sub genres? They don't have to be bad, but something you consider strange or weird.

Oh boy.. I'm addicted to strange fusions haha. Progressive and avant-garde bands are usually pretty good about combining them effectively, here's a few:

Oriental metal, has middle eastern influences and riffs.



Reggae metal. Fun, gets ya goin.



Tom Waits is just his own goddamn genre.



So is Frank Zappa.



Ihsahn combines death metal with lots of jazz elements, great sax lines in this one.



This site has a big list of fusion bands: tvtropes. org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly

Not as weird as the OP, but I`ve always found classical music played on the harmonica to be a kind of unsettling genre. It makes me think simultaneously of lonesome cowboys on the range and the culturati dressed up for a concert in Vienna :-



And more recently, thanks to MB newcomer rosenbmb, I`ve learned what Middle Eastern Trap music would sound like:-

Psychedelic Black Metal is a sub-genre I've found weird in a great way for a while.

Naah. That was kind of a little bit of sort of beautiful.

That was hella pretty, thanks. I think you got the description down pat. I love western vibe music.

Crunkcore.

Fortunately just a trend that died when that dude from that one band got arrested for banging teenagers. I was never a fan but I have to wonder how Vans Warped tour turned into a pedophile festival.

The oddest sub-genre I actually enjoy and actively listen to would be Zeuhl and RIO.
