The one thing we can all agree on is that people who argue over genre definitions are complete assholes.

Except the people arguing over genre definitions.

Most genres overlap some other genre (or multiple genres), so calling a specific band (or album or song) two different genres isn't that uncommon. Some hard rock bands can also be considered metal. Some rap artists can also be considered hip hop artists. Some alternative rock bands can be considered electronic. A decent portion of musicians have their own style to them (while others are more generic, like Nickelback... Bleh).

^This.^

Had to scroll back a page to see what you were talking about...

I can still remember when Pearl Jam "broke," and musician friends practically fist-fought over whether they were still technically "alternative..."

Yeah, it happened.

I give up.
