sound
and unless you noticed, different times have different sounds too
for example, most of the songs that came up in the 80's were hair metal power ballads
whitesnake ftw

well of course sound

the only way anyone could argue that time defines music is by citing how it is different throughout the years. but by this they are meaning to say that sound has changed over time, so sound wins again.

so if it makes more sense to classify music by sound, what's the point of classic rock...wouldn't that be classifying music by time?

music shouldn't be categorized at all. God knows everyone hates sub-genres. It should just like "Iron Maiden sounds like Iron Maiden" not "Iron Maiden sounds like NWOBHM" or some crap like that. Each band has their own style and sound.

guy2-oh, that's NWOBHM, check out saxon and diamond head
guy2-wow, thanks, i'm really liking saxon

Without Genres and Sub-Genres
guy1-dude i really like iron maiden and i want to listen to some bands like that
guy2-oh, that's heavy music, check out Cannibal Corpse or Korplikaani

Well, CR is judged by a mix of time and sound.
If it was just down to sound it would be ok to come in here and talk about bands like G 'n' R or Wolfmother (and it's not )

I agree with you to a certain extent. I'm ok with the larger sub-genres like black metal and death metal and all that but then there's those smaller ones where there are like 4 bands that fit into it. Eventually every single band will have their own sub-genre. Besides most bands don't like to be categorized because they get forced into a corner and when they break out people say they "sold out". Sure you could say that Slayer is thrash metal and everyone knows it but because of this categorization, they can't do something like say an acoustic album. IMO sub-genres restrict the artist to one style and don't allow them to experiment with different styles and ideas..

Neither. Music should be classified by instrumentation. Symphonic, Orchestral, Choral, Vocal, Electronic, Synthetic, Rock band, Jazz band, etc.
#13
So what music should be 00's time, then, or 00's-10's time???
How would you define music that wasn't really popular in it's own age...???
