There are endless different genres of music out there, and they each bring something cool and unique to listeners. That being said, how do you know what kinds of music to play at your party? Luckily there is a list below of new, up-and-coming genres that will be sure to get your party crowd excited.
Pop Punk is Back
In the early 2000s, punk rock was in full swing with bands like Panic at the Disco, Paramore, and Green Day. This genre of music was extremely high-paced, headbanging, and loud, so it made it the perfect type of music to play at parties back in the early 2000s. Eventually, this type of music fell out of popularity, but it is back. Famous artists like Machine Gun Kelly have made a name for this type of music again.
The coolest part about the return of punk rock is with newer artists like MGK releasing punk rock songs; the old ones are coming back to life as well. If you haven’t been under a rock, you have probably seen the popularity of the song “Dear Maria Count Me In” by All Time Low. This song blew up on a popular app called Tik Tok and was the center of many popular trends.
For some reason, for a long time, one of the most popular genres of music was “Gangster Rap.” There is a genre of music in each generation that parents heavily disapprove of, making it that much more attractive to the younger generation. In recent years, this genre of music happened to be Gangster Rap. Artists often would speak of humble beginnings and what they used to do when affiliated with their old gang.
The rap industry has moved about from gangster rap and has started creating more melodic songs with wholesome messages. Some Christian rap artists that have recently gotten popular are NF, Derek Minor, Andy Mineo, and arguably J-Cole, one of the greatest to ever do it.
There has been a lot of controversy with newer, more popular country songs. The problem that the country music industry is facing right now is the addition of “Pop Country.” The more contemporary style of country music has a poppy, electric feel to it, and it attracts a new and different crowd to country music. Some more unique artists that fall into this category are Dan and Shay and some of Morgan Wallen’s songs.
Some of the country music industry is upset about the addition of this genre, but it has done nothing but good things for old, classic country songs. Some artists have old, wholesome country song values in some of their songs, but their most popular songs are Pop Country. This gives an olive branch to those just starting to enjoy country music.
