Hello everyone! It’s time for me to bring back an old favorite! About a year ago, I jumped into the fascinating world of obscure music genres. I have always found this topic to be quite interesting with new genres added almost daily. Now, let’s dive into the most unique and weird genres that music has to offer!
Noise Rock Created: 1968 Prominent Bands: Melt-Banana, Metz, Big Black
Noise Rock is a Punk-inspired genre with large distortion levels, occasionally unintelligible vocals, sharp and intense sounds, and blindingly fast guitar riffs and strange lyrics. Many Japanese bands of this genre also started to rise in the early 60’s. While most of it is very painful to the ears, some is quite enjoyable like Sonic Youth and Velvet Underground.
Glitch Hop Created: 1997 Prominent Producers: Virtual Riot, Mr. Bill, GRiZ
Glitch Hop is a subgenre of Glitch that uses malfunctioning electronics and fusion of Hip Hop to create incredibly catchy, video game-inspired pieces. It’s also influenced by Dubstep and drum and bass. The pieces are usually played at 110 BPM.
Disclaimer: Pokemon Clover is a Pokemon rom rack that’s made by 4chan. Many of the characters can be considered offensive, or in poor taste. If you’re easily offended, read at your own risk!
Pokemon Clover is one of the funniest games I’ve ever seen. 4chan’s ridiculous remake of Fire Red was incredibly well received by the public, and even a heavily detailed wiki was made for the game. The new region of the game is called Fochun, and the gym leaders range from Tumblr feminists to freaking Snoop Dog! This revamped pokedex list will included the most bizarre and mind-blowing entries in the game. Now, grab your favorite Pokemon, or Fakemon, and let’s begin!

Unfortunately , his compulsion caused him to derail a train and kill many people. He was eventually incarcerated in the Arkham Asylum, and repaired many things around the complex. While not having necessarily having bad intentions, Dumpty’s compulsions have caused much more harm then good.
