Eh?

Obviously, each stylistic variation within each genre is considered.

I feel like I should include rap and r&b, but I guess DDD recognizes them as 'rock' styles so they technically don't count here.

I think this is one of the better features about the lists, actually. By including soul/hip hop/funk/electronic etc.., the lists are much better than if they were just a 100 guitar bands.

seems silly bending genre rules and norms to make our lists look prettier. r n b being a subgenre of rock even though it predates rock by years and years?

put all the 'rock' guitar bands in one list so it's easier to ignore, i say

Yeah, it definitely makes the lists more varied and complete, imo. And often makes for better discussion...

Well, the thinking behind that is the earliest roots of rock is essentially the very same as the earliest r'n'b. I agree that is is kinda genre bending but it's pretty logical. Everything that's clearly descended from the early roots rock gets included. Sure, when everyone hears the term "rock" they think of guitar bands, but I think a list that has all those different styles is way more valuable. If someone wants the guitar bands, they can look at the hard rock list of whatever.

I dunno about songs, but stuff like Kraftwerk is considered rock for the purposes of the lists.

Folk. Followed closely by Electronica (for which I would've selected "other")

I've mostly heard fake white guy blues but I've heard of the real stuff to know I love it.

Folk, then jazz, then classical. Somewhere in between probably pop, whatever that may be.
