All added except for the first song you suggested SB. Don't know what to classify it as. I'm sure the Alternative Rock tag will be snatched up quite quick (and as cliche a choice it might be, I'd personally like to see Smells Like Teen Spirit occupy that spot, but I won't claim it).

I'll be taking the Grunge category, however, with this timeless classic.

So um... what happens when folks have disagreements about whether a song should represent a sub-genre?
Doesn't seem like this should be strictly a first-come-first-serve thing, considering what it is.

To quote article A, section B.

This can be applied if you feel a song is a poor representation of the genre too. This shouldn't be abused however, and just because you aren't fond of a particular song doesn't give you grounds to challenge it. It's a rather large project, so I'm afraid voting on everything or getting people to back you up on every submission would just take too much time.

Just the rule I made up, if anyone has better ideas feel free to tell me.

Afrobeat: Fela Kuti - Expensive Shit


This is really wonderful stuff. Just discovered this guy today during my research of Afrobeat music. Seems to combine a lot of my favorite elements of Ghana Highlife, jazz, and funk together.

Desert rock:

Progressive metal:

Pop punk:
