Then again, why is classical lumped together with rock in the first place, anyway?

One of the Rock genres paired with Classical in this case is Progressive Rock, and that kinda makes sense, because Progressive Rock artists/bands (especially Symphonic Prog) were influenced by classical music directly and tried to bring that complexity to rock music.

Still, whoever made this didn't really understand Classical. There are many different types of Classical - Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classic, Romanticism, Impressionism, Contemporary, etc. Those are just the most basic outline of eras, there are plenty of others, especially later in time.

The individual who made this, listed like a billion different pop genres, but only two classical (assuming chamber music is a classical genre to them... a strange choice, but you know). It is very strange, to list all of these obscure pop genres but lump classical altogether like that. I suppose they just assumed not enough people like classical music. =/

Also I listen to J-Pop...a lot, but I feel those are way too broad as umbrella. (No, Spotify, I won't listen to cutesy pop idols just because I listen to Yuki Kajiura and Sound Horizon.)
Exactly. Spotify classifies a lot of my favorite pop punk bands from Japan as J-Pop because they're popular T_T.

Psychic for trance music, probably my favorite type of music. I guess also fairy for liking some J- and K-pop. Maybe a little bit of bug too

I'm a folkie, so Grass makes sense,
I certainly like to have a little grass before I practice banjo if you know what I mean

Hard to narrow it down to two:
Bug, Fighting, Ghost, Ice.

Bug-Ice or Bug-Fighting would be my primary type probably.

Bug, as in game music, is the closest, because it can get really varied, and I listen to a lotta different music. Too much to list. I also may have periods, where I listen to a genre and/or artist over a timespan.

By the way, why doesn't it just say soundtrack music?

Bug/Rock for me, I guess?

Although to be honest, I have absolutely no clue what most of these genres even are, so I could like them amd not even know it :lapras:

Ghost/Grass or Ice/Dark, probably! My music taste is way too varied for this kind of thing.

Wind ensemble originals and New Sounds in Brass/Concert Band arrangements of jazz standards performed by Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra. So that makes me Dragon and Flying? Wish there were more genres for classical, gotta say.

Unfortunately the creator of this clearly doesn't understand classical music. I guess in the same way I don't understand a lot of pop music because there are countless genres in the image that I've never heard of. Lol.

I saw this in another community, and thought I might share. (it includes some fictional Pokemon types, don't know what to think of that, but oh well)

I haven't even heard of most of these genres! :lapras:

As for me, Dragon is definitely my primary type, as I regularly listen to and love pretty much every genre of it. The secondary type is where it gets iffy for me. It's either Grass, Normal or Flying.
I guess normal and fairy?

I thought that maybe they mixed "classical" with "classic rock"... but then I saw classic rock on Normal's list.

Also, since when is "YouTube covers" a genre?
