Dance music? That name never maked sense... it's like saying "reading
literature". Or like easy listening, most of that stuff is harder for
me to listen to that hard rock.

Anyway, genres are for people that need tags. Every band/musician has
a different sound. It's good or bad. But just because people say it's
this tag you like it isn't going to be good or you have to like it.

Music genre tagging has gone crazy... "electro ambient minimal
techno", "epic hard rock metal", "indie pop oxymorons".

For a tag-free world,
