Sputnik Genre Fails

Why does Sputnik ignore so many important musical genres?
1 Son House
Preachin' The Blues


Blues Genres: How are so many shitty, electrified appropriationists tagged under the same label as greats like this? I haven't seen one decent blues list on this site. Steppenwolf?Leadbelly
2Duke Ellington
Masterpieces By Ellington


Jazz genres: Fuck prog rock. Jellyroll Morton ? Michael Buble
3Taraf De Haïdouks
Taraf De Haïdouks


Folk Genres: Folk encompasses every indigenous musical tradition in the world. To condense that down to "folk", "indie folk", "folk punk" and "folk metal" is pig- headed. Mumford and Sons ? Woody Guthrie
4Loretta Lynn
Van Lear Rose


Country genres: I think we can all agree that Black Sabbath is as dissimilar to Slipknot as Hank Williams is to Kenny Chesney. Johnny Cash ? Kelly Clarkson
5 Satan's Teardrops
Set Em Up & Knock Em Down


Rockabilly: It's not country, it's not artsy rock but it's damn good music...and who the fuck knows what "americana" is?
6Edith Piaf
The Voice of the Sparrow: The Very Best...


Chanson/Cabaret/Showtunes: I hate showtunes. I hate that none of these genres are represented on this site even more.
7Lord Invader
Calypso


Calpso: It may have been the Caribbean music that sold it's soul to Babylon; the minstrel show of The Gulf... but who cares!? It's so damn fun!
8 Lydia Mendoza
Mal Hombre & Other Original Hits from the 1930s


Tejano: ...and all other Mexican music... and all other Latin music... and all other World music
9Dick Dale
King Of The Surf Guitar


Surf: Unique, influential and amazing
10King Tubby
Dub From The Roots


Dub: How can you take yourselves seriously when you have a "dubstep" genre and no Dub?
11Lou Reed
Transformer


Glam: Once again, fuck prog rock.
12The Skatalites
Foundation Ska


Ska genres: For those who don't know: 1st wave: doo-wop-inspired Jamaican pop music: innovative and timeless 2nd wave: Brit-punks inspired by 1st wave: still innovative, but political and less timeless 3rd wave: kinda started as an extention of 2nd wave in the states but got bastardized 'n' commercialized to the point of irrelevance. Why we need more than 1 "ska" genre: Listen to The Skatalites and Real Big Fish and tell me they're the same
13Simple Minds
New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)


New Wave: This genre spawned a lot a shit but that should not let us overlook the brilliant work that came from it
