    Ummm.. pretty decent list. but you should bare it in mind that there is a very thin line bordering these genres and it is not right to say that a particular band belongs only to one particular genre... eg... blind guardian has been put under Power/Prog metal... right. but they are also put under melodic metal in many sites I have seen... also under heavy metal. Also Led Zeppelin can also be called metal as well as classic rock as well as blues rock.

    but genres are still quite fun to know... here's a pretty comprehensive page...
  11. 6String_assasin
