Hello,

Shouldn't it be right to add Kpop in the genre list?

I strongly disagree on addind such a 'genre'. In K-pop, there's 'pop (music)'. It's just the same as genres such as J-pop, J-Rock, Neue Deutsche Härte, etc.

maybe a generic term for all these sub-genres then? "Asian pop" for J/K pop and their Western offsprings ?

I mean, if "austropop" has a right to be there, you can hardly deny a seat to J-pop.
Or else I want French pop to be added to the list too Regular smile

The Admins have been suggested a couple of 'alternative' genres (I remember Zouk and Bollywood, but there are more). They will, according to their own words, stick to more or less popular genres to avoid the mess that happens with the languages list.

BTW, is there any major difference between standard pop, Britpop and Austropop or it's just a local difference?

Brit pop I would vouch for. It has been influential since the late 70's. I have no idea what Austropop might be though Regular smile

It refers to Austrian pop-singers. But there are less than 20 artists who have it marked as one of their genres, so I really don't know if this entry is needed. The Britpop page has artists from several other countries that have nothing to do with Britain, so if the category remains some artist pages would need to be altered.

Well I suppose Brit pop can apply to bands from several countries. It's more like a style.

Unfortunately, it's unlikely to happen. I tried to get Bollywood added as a genre and had no luck. It's a great idea, though.

Enka (post-WWII fado-ish songs with Japanese traditional and Western elements mixed together) should be in the genre.

What we really need is the "game" genre.

Count me out of your "we". Why not a "hacker intro" genre, while "we" 're at it?

For that we have the 'Soundtrack' genre.
