List of popular music genres

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Popular music is music with wide appeal[1][2][3] that is typically distributed to large audiences through the music industry. These forms and styles can be enjoyed and performed by people with little or no musical training.[1] It stands in contrast to both art music[4][5][6] like Western classical music or Indian classical music, and traditional or "folk" music.

A music genre is a conventional category that identifies some pieces of music as belonging to a shared tradition or set of conventions.[7]

This is a list of the commercially relevant modern popular music genres, with applicable styles classified using AllMusic[8] genre categorization.
