10 Musical Genres and What it Would Be Like if You Were Addicted to Them

Categories: Lists, Music News

5. Salsa
C'mon, who hasn't gone too far with a lil' mambo at least once in their lifetime?

4. Harsh Japanese Noise
To be addicted to "noise," - the extreme music genre developed and popularized, in part, by Japanese provocateurs like Hanatarash, Merzbow, and the Incapacitants - is to be afflicted with a compulsion that makes its self-destructive nature hyper-explicit. That is to say, to be addicted to noise is to be addicted to self-inducing one serious mindfuck of a splitting headache after another.

3. Hare Krishna Hardcore
Sure, Shelter lived a lifestyle free of drugs, meat and promiscuous sexual activity. But was their rabid devotion to Hare Krishna and/or hardcore punk rock promoting Hare Krishna something comparable to an addiction?

2. Trap Music
This genre is all about drugs in the first place. The people listening to it probably have something to do with drugs, at some point of the drug-doing process, be it the making, distributing, selling, consumption or theft (of drugs). 

1. Disco
Much like benzoylmethylecgonine (aka YAYO, aka blowcaine), disco has the ability to transform a wholesome, gainfully-employed citizen into a sweaty, blathering, teeth-gnashing, fast-talking narcisisst.
