Music should be tagged as what it is, not what it comes after.

Music should be described by what it is, and not what you think it comes after, or succeeded. Do the music community a service and instead of calling your music by what it is not, give it a name, and let us know what it is ... If you disagree, then join the group and say why in one of the articles ...

    Oh, the age old debate of post-metal. It is very loosely defined and often refers (wrongly) to either bands that incorporate common post-rock tropes and/or ape the sound that Neurosis & co. have developed. As for post-punk, I think it was more of a mentality/movement than a proper genre (most "revival" bands merely copy a handful of bands, as opposed to the eclectic as fuck first wave of bands), but they did use some elements often enough for you to be an idea of what you're in for when you see a band listed as it... as for when it was created, it was just an umbrella genre for people doing weird shit with a rock ensemble.

    @Baliaur post-rock is not even rock, nor is it post anything. how about let the genre develop a little and see what its fans call it ... oh wait ... does it have any fans?

    post-punk is obviously a legitimate genre. The discussion post is really, ridiculously misinformed (madchester?? really?). a bit of research goes a long way, chaps.

    'post classical' is a joke, but how would Ya call post rock then?? Rock? Not really, no. You can not deny prefixes.

    Well, even if any little retarded kid can think up a genre name it doesn't mean it will be widely accepted enough to officially be called that. Look at the amount of people tagging those and look at the comments. My favourite is some comment on post-rap... "Godspeed You! Crunk Nigga." There is no way some of those will ever stick... except for post-post-post-post-post-post-post, that has some potential.

    yeah, the music is not the problem at all for me. the problem is the people calling it names and codifying it. that used to be in the hands of the press, musical elite, and stemmed from underground scenes that would develop for years before sticking. now anyone can "tag" or "name" a genre. even though we agree with the two types of meanings to the word tag, many, indeed, most don't. just read a shout below that says, "all of these music genres exist." that is in open defiance to that idea ... in short, i think the tags are major wankery. i just don't know what else to say. this group states for the record just that. the "delete" part of the title is a little cheeky, a little glib, naturally,but if I did not do that, then the group would be entirely serious, and entirely wank, which is what I am trying to avoid. anyways, appreciate the comments and looking forward to the poopoo genre. Check out my new tag for The Birthday Party, .

    As for the literal meaning of post... I gave up putting logic to tags. After-Rock makes no sense. Rock hasn't died. Rock is too broad of a genre to die any time soon. Post-Rock was just some term someone used on Rolling Stones Magazine that stuck. Mathcore is another term that makes little sense. Are they singing/screaming about mathematics? No? Oh, it's just a form of technical hardcore. Why not call it technicore? It's just "Mathcore." I don't care if someone decides to create "Poopoo" as a genre. I'll hate the genre name, but If I like the music, I like "Poopoo."

    Well, I do have to admit the humourous nature of these "post-" tags. I laughed when I discovered "post-jazz." While I do somewhat agree with a lot of people's arguments that genres are destroying music, it is human nature to want to categorize. I still have a hard time calling "post-rock" a true genre, but how else can I lump Caspian, GIAA, GY!BE, Mogwai, etc. together? I see "post-rock" more of a container than a true genre. A lot of these tags are mere containers. "Post-Jazz" sounds dumb, but to some person it may be his container to put a group of bands he feels are similar. Granted, this is what genres do, but we now look at genres as this "official" term. Officially, I don't care. As for those that look at for music history... those that really do want to delve into music history will do more research. There is always that type of person that collects his/her opinions from one universal source with little research. You won't ever be able to help them.

    @BossHossV8Bikes ... you make a good point. two genres are at least, for better or worse, definitively considered genres: post-disco and post-punk. Post-Rock is borderline, and the rest are the types of tags that you refer to ... Ok, so here is what actually "annoys" me the most ... 1) People are going to canonize these tags, and eventually people will draw from this site for music history. Therefore music history will be jaded 2) The tags, whether seen as genres or tags, don't even mean what they say and that is because people don't know grammar, and don't know what post means. This is just annoying, plain and simple. ..... ok, so, since I believe in unrestricted freedom, and I also enjoy stirring the pot, and cracking jokes against silly hipsters (a new term to add to your list), I formed the group to put my own somewhat cynical, somewhat true, and definitively glib take on the whole post- thing. I also got to say it is out of control though, even just as a "tag" ...
