Bla-bla-bla "What's this bands genre...?"

Following on from my thread, 'What's the Strangest Genre you've heard of', some people wanted to know whether I meant examples of these. Well, here it is. Simply, share with the rest of the readers whether you've heard of a band which you think is hard to call a certain genre (such as metal, rock, etc.).
For example, I didn't know what genre The Used were, before their most recent album.
These don't have to be right. If you know that a band does have a specific genre, tell us, don't intimidate those who don't know (like me).

very well

I just personally don't know what to call this, I usually only listen to metal and electronic.

By the way, I don't hold the answers to all the bands (obviously). So please don't ask me to define a genre for a band on request =)

I believe they belong in the genre of God.

I'd call that experimental jazz. It doesn't have much of an industrial vibe really, just an implied vibe.

Here's a tough one. What is Unexpect?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbS...feature=related

They seem to be masters of mixing dissonance and melody, but I can't tag a genre on them for shit.

If you wanna know any metal band's genre, just use that website for serious: they're huge genre nerds (as so am I, kinda lol)

Fair enough!

Keep this going, guys. Who else needs help with a band's genre?

Anyone familiar with Deftones or Funeral For a Friend?

Would you still call Deftones 'nu-metal'?

I think Funeral For A Friend are sort-of more 'hard rock' now with some of their old post-hardcore elements to keep old fans liking them.
