Here is a list of names of genres that appear as futile attempts at reinvention of existing genres:
|abstract hip hop
|Contradiction in terms
|There are a raft of genres preceded by the adjective “deeper” which seem to exist.
|A genre that admits that new wave is dead.
|hard stoner rock
|There are a number of genres that are listed with “nerd” in front of the name, such as “nerdcore”, but this one is new to me. But “pop” implies popularity. Would you play “math pop” to be popular?
|One of a raft of genres made newer by the placement of “nu” in front of the genre name
|underground pop rap
