    I 'borrowed' this from another site, so I hope they don't mind too much. Imitation is a form of flattery after all. The idea is that you put a favourite band or performer in each category, and add your own genre or sub-genre. Some are open to interpretation, like progressive or pop.

    1. Rock, pop
    2. Hard rock
    3. Blues
    4. Progressive
    5. Electronic
    6. Avant-garde
    7. Punk, new wave
    8. Soul
    9. Reggae
    10. Techno, synth, dance
    11. Folk
    12. Country
    13. Classical
    14. Modern classical
    15. Jazz, fusion
    16. Singer/songwriter

    This is mine
    1. Rock, pop - Manfred Mann
    2. Hard rock - Budgie
    3. Blues - Groundhogs
    4. Progressive - Yes
    5. Electronic - Tangerine Dream
    6. Avant-garde - The Neu!
    7. Punk, new wave - The Stranglers
    8. Soul - Temptations
    9. Reggae - Johnny Nash
    10. Techno, synth, dance - Alexander O'Neal
    11. Folk - Pentangle
    12. Country - Johnny Cash
    13. Classical - Erik Satie
    14. Modern classical - Nigel Kennedy
    15. Jazz, fusion - Isotope
    16. Singer/songwriter - James Taylor

    I'm adding
    17. Space rock - Steve Hillage

    The next person puts their choice of band for each category, including space-rock and adds a category. As it continues there are more categories each time, but you can leave spaces if you wish.

    There are more genres remaining (and sub-genres of the above) than you might think: List of popular music genres - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
