    Those are all pop and on that list.

    As for mainstream: depends on your definition of "mainstream".
    Well those are technically pop, but I believe I was a bit too vague in my terminology of "Pop". I mean vastly known, radio-play music of any genre. By my personal definition, none of the music you listed is pop.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    I noticed.

    Mainstream != Pop.
    There is a HUGE difference between the two. One is a genre, and the other is a certain state of which a song/artist is in.

    I guess I was pretty vague in my explanation. I was intending this: Popular music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, ​rather than the actual genre.
    Direct quote from wikipedia that explains my mistake:
    "Although popular music sometimes is known as "pop music," the two terms are not interchangeable. Popular music is a generic term for music of all ages that appeals to popular tastes,[6] whereas pop music usually refers to a specific musical genre."

    Meh, i remain loyal to Black Metal \m/
    As for other genera, it all depends. I like quite a few types but alas my musical tastes stay with Black/Death metal.
     





     





     

    @Aborted what are your views on Black Metal? For me not all black metal is the same, and the genera itself is indeed an art.

    I'm a metalhead in all aspects so I listen to Black Metal regularly. Classic stuff like Mayhem, Emperor, and Dark Throne to Depressive like Silencer, Xasthur, Totalselfhatred to Modern Atmospheric like Xanthochroid and the such.
