Genrefication

From Altopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the ridiculous process / idea of classifying music, film, literature, or other such mediums into specific genres or categories, causing people to argue and debate and sometimes even fight over which genre is the best.

Yes, we accept the point that classification is helpful in describing an artists work, but when it comes to one genre's fanbase alienating the fanbase of a different genre, simply because they assume the styles to be opposing, surely this is immature, especially seeing as so many genres have had an effect over others.

Check out our Music Genres category (link at bottom of this page) for some more information on how genres have blended throughout history.
