Music Genres

Because i am going to go through the codes and conventions of different musical genres i believed it was necessary to explain music genres.

They are tricky to tie down because the music industry is constantly creating and modifying old and new genres, If i was asked in the 1950s what different genres of music they were i would of replied with such genres of RnB (Rhyme and blues) and jazz and the any music listened to by the masses back then would of been called popular music and would of been played in jukeboxes in dinners and pubs.

These days a genre can be spawned by adding a new sound, theme or style a existing genre can create a new genre or sub genre. Example of this could be in the 1980's some musicians added a new progressive style to rock and created Progressive rock.

Because it would be impossible to look at the codes and conventions of every genre i intend to narrow down my list to much broader genres.

The last genre that i am going to look at is a bit debatable, i personally don't believe its a genre but more of a style but other people may say differently. It is popular current music, this fit bands and singers that are currently doing well with the masses and are played in the charts and on the radio. Some of the music in the charts could fit into heavy metal or rock music but it isn't that often.
Alot of these genres and artists do fit into other genres such as some would say heavy metal is a sub genre of rock and rap music is a part of electronic music but i am really looking at these genres because these are the ones that stand out the most in terms of differences in music videos.
