but they aren't here on a quest of domination. Rather, they are trying to expand their knowledge of the culture of the galaxy. They are friendly aliens.

They request samples of music, by bands that you think, on the whole, describe a certain genre's sound the best.

Of the following categories, which bands/artists would you tell the aliens to listen to in order to understand that respective genre the best?

Hip hop
Metal
Rock and roll
Jazz
Blues
Classical orchestra
Contemporary orchestra
Eastern musics
Electronic music (4 the h8rs)

I'd recommend them Opeth, that's it. Then I'd just tell them that they must have been misinformed, there's no such a thing as hip hop on Earth.

If they're really trying to expand their knowledge, they'd know better than to just ask one person.

Justin Bieber. Face it, humanity deserves to be destroyed and I'm sure that's exactly what will happen after they hear him

I'd give them a good dose of progressive for sur. Porcupine Tree, Opeth, BTBAM, Periphery, Tool, DT, etc...

Then maybe a bit a jazz fusion.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

the most realistic answer to this question? My country would preemptively declare war on them before there was a chance for any type of cultural exchange.

Should we tell them about the collab works he did with Daryn Dimbog right before they both died?

Bands/artists in random order:
Bach, Pink Floyd, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Chopin, Louis Armstrong, Nine Inch Nails, Ennio Morricone, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, The Clash, Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Eminem, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, more Waits, Queen, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Rush etc.

In shorter words - most of iconic artists.

The idea that we'd give them music from every niche of acoustic music and throw in one piece to cover every aspect of Electronic music is laughable and shows quite how unenlightened this forum of wood slinging fools is.
#31
Time For Overgeneralization

Hip-hop / Rap - Eminem
Metal - Metallica
Rock And Roll - Led Zeppelin
Jazz - Weather Report
Blues - SRV
Classical Orchestra - Beethoven
Contemporary Orchestra - Erik Satie (If that counts)
Electronic Music - The Prodigy

However most likely aliens may want to just kill us and take our resources in which case i would send them Anaal Nathrakh and try scare them away.

>implying that half of those genres aren't more varied and expansive than Electronic music

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

The absolute racism in a vast collective of cultures and musical tradition being boiled down to the flippant "Eastern musics" is deplorable as well.

That's just a myth. Toni Loomi never got that desperate.
