What is with all the different rock/emo/punk/music threads lately?

There are threads for these,no?

IMO,if you don't know the difference between all them then Google is your friend.

Enough is enough!!  >:(

but thats just me.

Just so you know Bubbles,I wasn't trying to be an ass about it.I just don't get why the question.Surely you aren't that cooped up that you don't know the difference between them.

none taken at all Tmanx, and honestly im sure there is a legitimate difference between them. However this is kind of an indirect response to the "whats the difference" thread about rap. Im not a hater or nothin of that other thread or the author thereof, but his thread made me question why are there so many different genres of rock per se.

Idc if no one really answers, tbh. like u said if i really wanted to kno a google seach is my best friend. but sometimes discussions are fun. if they werent we would google even single topic

Alright.
Alternative rock Is a more "strange" sounding rock with a bit of electronic music in there while classic rock is a more 80's rock like Deep Purple, AC/DC, Queen stuff like that. Heavy Rock/Hard rock. Pop rock is stuff like Nickleback. Radiorock. It basically mixs both pop and rock so it can grab a larger audience. It's much easier to listen to rather than say, something like AC/DC or Led Zeppelin.
Heavy Metal is the main metal genre where it all started and countless sub-genre's of heavy metal sprouted outward like thrash metal, death metal, black metal, progressive metal, power metal, symphonic metal etc etc...All these different sub-genres mix different styles of music into metal.
For example, Progressive Metal Is based off mixing Progressive rock and heavy metal. Thrash metal is a mix of punk rock and heavy metal. Death metal is the evolution of thrash metal. They add growls and grunts in order to give it a more aggressive tone.

Classic Rock is the best rock that is out there!  Well that is my opinion, I was born and raised listening to Classic Rock, mostly Led Zeppelin cause it's my dads favorite band.

Yeah, because it'd be totally helpful if every single piece of music ever written fell under the category of "music".
