    Classifying bands through genre is a dumb thing to do. What artist wants to be restricted by genre?

    So I guess I would disagree with all of them, but that's just my opinion I guess.

    No one can really disagree since it's all about your opinion, really.

    All the ones you labeled punk rock, I'd say they're all alternative. But of course, that's just me.

    It's based on opinion. Just classify the music as you please. I can see a point to classifying music by genre...if you're in the mood to listen to classic rock you want all the songs available with the push of a button.

    I, myself, hate subgenres so I usually classify things very generally. Just to show that people classify things very differently.

    I'd say Seether was Post Grunge but Hard Rock works too.

    Ya well I heard they were Post-Emo-Pre-Core-Pop-Rock-Hip.

    On my iPod, I don't use genres. Just select all your tracks go up to file then get info and erase all of the genres.

    Demons & Wizards are more "Power Metal" than progressive, and Iron Maiden is much more 80s Thrash/Classic Metal than prog either. Old Metallica is much more prog than Iron Maiden ever has been, and its still classified as Thrash.

    Although I have a certain personal liking for classifications, I find that many of my favourite bands are hard to classify. In a sense, "progressive" rock/metal isn't a genre that forces bands to stick to one style or sound...it could be pretty much anything, from Pink Floyd to Opeth to The Mars Volta to Dream Theater. I feel things like Pop/punk and alternative metal force the bands to stick to a certain formula which leaves no room for creativity and growth.

    i had always assumed linkin park should be alt-metal/rap..but that's my opinion..

    for the bands like blink 182 should be classifyed as pop punk.

    I can understand that a lot of you disagree with putting certain artists/bands under genres but this is for my Ipod :p . I want things to be very organised. I would prefer to have the artists on my ipod under the genre that the majority of people would put it under rather than my own opinion. I shall change the Blink 182, Demons & Wizards, Iron Maiden and probably The Killers. Thank you all very much ^_^
