HELP ME rank all Sput genres

Hi. You saw what Ryus and Ars did with this list format - it was fun and entertaining and I loved backseating the hell out of them. For a short while I considered making my own version - and maybe I will one day!! - but having considered the inherent ridiculousness of asserting any notion of pan-[sput]genre supremacy (see: Ars' list), I realised that this is actually a far more valuable opportunity to LEARN than to FLEX. So, um, here are the genres! I tentatively commit to listening to roughly one album per genre as a horizon-broadening exercise (may be more than one for big genres/genres I'm clueless on, will be zero for genres I know to well). Help me choose which to pick I guess!
