    i was wondering what exactly is rock...what is pop...basically all the diff genres we have...and then i started thinking...are there any "textbook" definitions of any of these generes..what does one mean when they songs have a lot of pop in them...or thats a bluesy tune....
    how does one classify rock into its subgroups...or
    simply is music classified into genres

    PS:just so the title might not change the title of this thread was "Classification of music into genres" and was posted in the music talk forum

    But theres one problem with wikipedia. Anyone can edit any page. The other day i was reading up biographies and in dave mustaine's biography it said that he died of food poisioning on the 12th nov 2004. I was shocked. I didn't know what of make of it. Then, i went and check a few websites and megadeth's official webiste but found nothing. So, then i was wondering how they could make such a blunder, and realised that its easy to edit the page. Thank god for that. I was really scared.Anyway, thats just a tale i wanted to share. And good link death metal fan.
