Musical Genre Name Generator

If you’re a music critic, you’re constantly searching for combinations of terms to describe the flavor-of-the-moment in a novel but legitimate fashion (e.g. “metal-queer,” “mumble-core”). I’ve made it easy for you. Presenting the Musical Genre Name Generator™. After you generate your new musical genre, you can click the term to search Google to see how original you are. (By the way, this won’t work in the RSS feed.)

Clearly, this is a statement on how nothing’s original anymore; everything’s been done. Even the Musical Genre Name Generator™.

Mumble-soul! Yes!

My favorite so far is "aggro-folk."

UPDATE: I haven't yet generated a term that isn't found on Google.

The first one that popped up for me is "riot-pop," which really does adequately describe nearly all of the music I love.

The leader of the pack in mumble-soul would have to be The Walkmen.

"Agit-rap." I love it.

I kinda like "post-folk", which is kinda oxymoronic?

I got "queer-blues", which apparently became a genre just this Monday.
