What Stereotypes do each genre have?? For example: a stereotype of metal is the artist/band members/ fans have long hair. Now do this for the other genres, metal, death metal, blues, country, classical, etc.

In order to play thrash, the only real skill one must possess is the ability to chug away on the low E string.

Indie - a genre composed of people who never learned to play their instruments properly, and are hopelessly addicted to vintage or vintage-style gear, to the point of not using anything else.

I actually do like some indie, though.

Punk has a bunch of stereotypes that are completely off I.E. They have to dress a certain way, they can't play their instruments well, they have stupid political views, I can go on...

All those stereotypes annoy me.

Black metal -
If more than 20 people know about your band, you're a sellout
If you play live shows, you're a sellout
If you're not Norwegian, you're a sellout.
If you sell out, you're a sellout.

Most of these are true in many black metal circles though.

EDIT: If you're in cradle of filth, you're a sellout
Gear:
PRS SE Singlecut, blue with stoptail (my baby)
Line 6 Spider III 75 (shut up)
Epiphone Les Paul standard
Cheapo Yamaha nylon string
even more cheapo Fender steel string acoustic

Metal has the stereotype that EVERY SINGLE METAL SONG is about eating babies, or that the lyrics are just RAAAGH.

that's how it is at my school anyway. i always tell the people that say that "yeah... iron maiden and deep purple sing about that"

Also, we got my friend to put the song Imperium by Machine Head on, got everyone else in the class to listen to it, and they did to the point where Robb says "Hear me now!" where everyone goes "what is that?! turn it off"

Playing live shows making you a sell out , black metal works weird. Shows are pretty underground and a good way to keep the community together. I don't know how an underground community could run without shows.

Blues -

To play blues, one must have either a Strat, Tele, ES-335, or dobro. Any other guitar is not permissible. As for amps, one must have a Fender-styled combo. Any other amp is sacrilege. The only permissible tone is one on the verge of breakup. Any actual distortion will get you shunned. One must also downpick only. It's important to do this, because if you're discovered to have any technical skill at all, you'll be booted out of the blues idiom faster than you can say "Blind Lemon Jefferson." Bends must be executed every three notes at minimum. Make sure they're out of tune, and at least a bar long, or you'll be chastised for not playing with feeling.

The only scales you are allowed to use in the blues are the minor pentatonic and its close relative, the blues scale. You'll be kicked out for actually knowing diatonic scales. You must also remember to know absolutely jack shit about theory. I must stress this, as many a prospective bluesman have been shunned for putting any chords other than the I, IV, and V major triads and dominant seventh chords, although referring to such chords with said names will likely get you shunned as well. Originality in the blues is stressed, although not so much as to having blues players actually be original.

Just follow these steps, and you'll be well on your way to being a blues musician!

A stereotype about Nu Metal would be that Korn is the father, Disturbed are the son, and Fred Durst is the holy ghost. NOT TRUE!
Question not yourself. Challenge those who would deny you your true self for an independent thinker is the greatest enemy to those who seek to control you

To be Metal, you must be a long-haired, greasy, Christian-hating reject who lives in his/her parent's basement while making income off of dealing drugs and selling homemade bestiality porn.

What do you mean whatever the song is about? The song IS about how your baby done you wrong. Always. ( I love the blues so much )


Bluegrass-

Every single song is in G and is a I IV V progression. Songs cannot exceed 3 minutes. No instruments besides guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, fiddle and occasional dobro are permitted. None of these may be electrified, the instruments are amplified by a handful of condensor mics on stage. Everyone sings into one microphone in high pitched, nasal harmonies. Everyone wears matching suits with sequins on them and cowboy hats. Songs are always about being sad, travelling a lot and hard work. Minorities are not allowed under any circumstances. Homosexuality is only approved if it is the rape of a small man from the city. Incest is greatly encouraged.

Hardcore... Punk on drugs. Ten times crappier, everyone wears basketball short, cuts the sleeves off their shirts, and shaves their head. Always singing about fighting, being stabbed in the back, and pushing your ex girlfriend off a cliff.
