The genre selection is terrible! 2011-08-29 14:05:52 Reply

There are so few rock-ish genres to choose from we should really work on adding more. Especially cause my band is such a random genre we don't even know what to call ourselves. And I feel people make instant judgments on certain genres so it'd be nice to have just like an "other" genre button where we can describe it ourselves.
What do you guys think my bands genre could be? (ps each song is a very different style)
Let Me See Your Face - The Trabajabas
All The King's Horses - The Trabajabas This song really progresses as it goes on it starts off chill but gets really epic btw ;D

Thanks for the help!

That is such a good point haha, didn't think that through. With any freedom there's always abuse of that freedom. But whatever just a thought to be had.

Your stuff sounds a lot like Reggae with Rock influences to me..Since there's no Reggae genre in the Portal, I'd just leave it in Ska, or General Rock would work to.

Good songs, by the way. But please posts like this in the Advertisements thread. Thanks.

If you pronounced it as ''oondahh'', probably.
