genre music

Importing CDs into iTunes, I get a kick out of what genre the Gracenote database has listed for various albums or artists. Thus I learn that Fields of the Nephilim are a metal band.

I would have to say I mentally file them with my gothic stuff. On the other hand, I've never had a problem with the theory that goth arose from metal. And of course a good deal of argument about what kind of music album/artist is going to stem from how finely you want to dice up your categories.

Still, it gave me a chuckle.
