Incredibly short-lived musical genres


#21

Electro.swing (fingers.crossed)

I mean obviously still around but 5 or 6 years ago it was everywhere and utterly unavoidable


#22

Any good recent releases? Haven’t followed that scene since like 2009


#23

Distonn
Doormouse
Drumcorps has some new stuff out
Although it’s all over the place igorrrs stuff is worth a listen


#24

No wave

I don’t even know what it is


#25

Had forgotten how the song/video escalates from laughable to madness in the space of a few minutes. Still one of the worst things I’ve ever heard or seen.


#26

Bonde de role were(/are) great. Still stick with lasers on quite frequently. CSS have dated much less well.


#27

It’s truly astonishing. The whole thing is such an overwhelming assault on the senses to begin with and that’s before that nonsensical twist keyboard ending . Iconic.


#28

Spazzcore


#29

to be fair to them, they completely took the piss out of every subgenre of emo/metalcore in the space of a few minutes and probably ended the genre, even if they didn’t mean to


#30

The keyboard and auto-tuned vocals bit is amazing.


#31

I’m going to choose to believe they didn’t, because that’s an amazing concept - earnestly releasing a song that ultimately destroys every genre that you loved and were inspired by.


#32

Amazingly, I remember this. I think they just about managed to get a free tape onto MM or NME, with some bands and that was about it. Could be mis-remembering though.


#33

I am note quite sure what I just watched.


#34

battle of the shittest emocore kids of all time! Which is worse:

  • Attack Attack!
  • brokeNCYDE

fuck it, let’s not


#36

I’ve now heard the shittest, and the second shittest songs in the whole world.


#37

Yep!


#38

I might actually have a sealed copy in the loft. Waiting for the Romo revival to kick in so I can sell it for millions.


#39

Crunkcore (eg Millionaires)
