    I don't think anyone seriously classifies "classic rock" as its own genre. Its own radio station type, yes, but not its own genre.
    Pop is just split into time frames, which I'm honestly alright with, cuz it helps distinguish between pop I like and pop I hate.
    Metal punk I've never heard much about. Isn't that basically grunge?
    Christian metal barely even has Christian lyrics. It's just inspiring lyrics, not necessarily religious, despite its original intent.

    I honestly think that lyrical content should be a big factor in classification, but not in determining the genre. Put it this way: If you're someone looking for some good rap, but hate songs about money and "bitches" and fame, wouldn't the classification of "political rap" help?

    Metal punk is basically crossover thrash, metal core, that kinda thing.

    Yeah, I guess that's true.

    It's the usual guitar-filled, unrelenting style of punk with metallic guitars. If you play a Minor Threat song and then turn the distortion up, you'll start making a metal punk cover of it. It's a simple, but very noticeable difference. :P

    Yeah, that would help, but it's like "classic rock". I don't put "classic rock" alongside "progressive rock" and "surf rock" and "Kraut-rock", but if somebody's looking for standard rock-and-roll that isn't recent, I'll use "classic rock" in making a recommendation. All I'm really saying is that it's not contemporary, not that it's a completely differnet genre. And the same goes for "political rap": I could use it to describe hip-hop that focuses on politics as a lyrical subject, but if that were actually a distinct subgenre, then everything from Flobots to Rage Against the Machine would fall under it. Flobots are alt-hop (which I totally didn't make up just now) and Rage Against the Machine are rap metal, and they're both political rap.

    ...That's pretty much exactly what I said.

    Maybe a better word would be "concurring".

    Now that we're done talking about music, care for a game of semantics?

    We can never be done with talking about music.
