    The best album by The Beatles is Revolver.

    Revolution 9 was the best song The Beatles ever made.
    Lady Gaga is no different than any other pop artist out there today.
    What many people describe as "emo" music is good.

    I can understand the last two, but Revolution 9 is awful. The worst thing since WW2.

    "Emo" is not a genre. Neither are "classic rock", "horror punk", "Christian metal", "classic pop", or "political rap".

    Emo is a genre, as is horror punk and Christian metal. Classic pop is better known as Traditional pop, classic rock is just hard rock and political rap is usually just conscious hip-hop.

    Emo is, in fact, a genre—just a misunderstood one. Bands like Three Days Grace aren't emo, but Sunny Day Real Estate are. It's basically a more personalized and melodic version of hardcore punk.
    And dude, you listen to Misfits. They're pretty much the epitome of horror punk.
    Christian metal is kinda questionable if you ask me, but most people seem to acknowledge it as a genre.

    I suppose I could go with that.

    Now, as for the other ones, "classic rock", to me, is just rock. Them Crooked Vultures and The Who are pretty much the same thing to my ears. Classic pop is just pop that, tragically, nobody seems to do any more in favor of electric pop (which I hate) and alt-pop (which I love). Horror punk is just metal punk/crust punk with a different imagery to it, and Christian metal is just metal with Christian-themed lyrics.

    Now, I might be able to be convinced otherwise on horror punk or whatever, but literally the only difference between Christian metal and political rap to the rest of their genres is lyrical content. To me, lyrical content means absolutely nothing when it comes to classifying music. There aren't subgenres for any other lyrical subject matter, so why should politics make a difference in hip-hop, or Christianity in heavy metal? It makes zero sense to me. If I were listening to a death metal song from Germany that had lyrics on the subject of Christianity, in German, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. It's just death metal. Christian lyrics don't change its sound. And same goes for political rap: it's just hip-hop that has a god-damn meaning for a change.

    I can agree with your second statement, religion doesn't create new genres. We can't go around having Buddhist Death Metal or Islamic Bluegrass.

    I'd totally listen to Muslim bluegrass.
