Wednesday Question: Best Modern Rock Genres
Rock music has, thankfully, spiralled out of control.

Since its modest beginnings as an unruly cousin to blues, rock music has captured the imagination of young people across the decades. And with each generation comes new iterations to enjoy, share and develop.

Today, there are dozens if not hundreds of rock music offshoots - but which are the most popular?

This week's question is:

What are the best modern rock genres?

It might seem like a tough poll, but it's pretty straightforward. Just pick a genre and an artist which you think is a great example, and if others vote for it, it might win the poll.

Post one genre (and sample artist) in the comments, and place your votes as normal. Feel free to correct people if the genre can be better described, or if you have a suggestion for a better artist to share. Good luck!
