So I know I said I’d be back “tomorrow”, but I got a life here. Anyway, I finished counting the different types of music listed in Wikipedia. For N through Z: N=85, O=33, P=116, Q=7, R=76, S=130, T=61, U=8, V=14, W=16, X=3, Y=6, Z=12, so all together for types that begin with N through Z there are 567. So the grand total of music genres from A to Z is: (918+567) 1485. That’s a whole lotta songs. I thought a funny one I came across today was Nardcore. “Nardcore is a hardcore punk movement that came out of Southern California in the early 1980s, originating in Silver Strand Beach, Oxnard and Port Hueneme….Much of the early promotion of Nardcore came from Mystic Records, in Hollywood, Ca., and its founder Doug Moody. While questions have been raised about their financial dealings with the artists, this label not only launched many bands onto vinyl, but also promoted the Nardcore scene as a whole…..The name is a reference to the Oxnard, California hardcore punk scene. This suburban community, sixty miles north of Los Angeles, California, was the spawning ground for many hardcore punk bands of the early ’80s and became a hotbed for punk and skate bands; collectively, their sound became known as “Nardcore.”" Suhweet, now that’s Nardcore! Say it aloud, don’t you sound like an idiot? I sure did.
