I've been thinking about this a lot lately. There are a TON of different genres of music. What defines certain music genres? There are more obvious genres, like Pop, Rap, Rock, and Dubstep which I think are more easily classified, however what about the more obscure genres? What makes something Psychill, Progressive, Chillwave, or Indie? And does having your music in the "mainstream" take it out of a certain genre? The biggest culprit of that, imo, would be Indie music. And do artists change their genres over time? Are musical genres even real? Are we just making more and more up so that artists can seem more different?

You don't have to answer those questions specifically, but just toss in your opinions on genres in general. I'll answer later when I can think, haha.
