    Genres are defined by people, and consequently are largely subjective. It's like asking "how many types of flavors are there?". In my opinion, infinite.

    @mmoul18 You are painfully wrong, and obviously being facetious! lol :) But in my humble opinion there are only 7 "REAL" genres of music. Maybe less. Each 'genre' outside these is really only a stylistic variation of the first 7. :) And the possibilities of stylistic variation on musical motifs, are quite infinite. There are as many as there are stars in the sky.

    To me, they are as follows: Classical (Realm of Opera, Orchestra, 1700's Composers, etc.) Jazz (The experimental, improvisational realm) Funk (Realm of sour notes and hard beats) Rock (Realm of guitar + bass guitar + drums + vocals) Pop (Realm of manufactured music) Hip-hop (Realm of poetry>melody, AKA "flows" or "rap") Club (Realm of DJ's, lasers, glow-sticks, and candy-kids)

    @Dyiliq, I just went to google and googled it and that was what came up with a number of different websites :)
