"This band isn't punk." "WTF do you even know what emo means?" "BMTH isn't metalcore any more."
The internet is weird, and it's full of opinions, but a study is attempting to find out which genres different bands fit into.
The research found that 51% of YouTube and Spofity playlists contained the word 'Punk' contained Green Day, and exactly half contained Blink-182...
Angry? It doesn't matter, because researcher draws the very valid conclusion that "genres exist entirely in our heads."
But just for fun, the top three 'punk' playlisted bands were:
1. Green Day - 51%
2. Blink-182 - 50%
3. The Offspring - 44%
More into metalcore? Looks like Bring Me The Horizon, Parkway Drive and Asking Alexandria were most popular there...
1. Bring Me The Horizon - 34%
2. Parkway Drive - 27%
3. Asking Alexandria - 26%
And as for emo playlists, the top three were...
1. My Chemical Romance - 30%
2. Fall Out Boy - 27%
3. Panic! At The Disco - 27%
