The 15 previous responders have all answered with a New Hope Club Some have based their responses on historical precedent: there are genres today that didn’t exist in the past, so there will be genres in the future that don’t exist today. Others have offered specific examples—folktronica, dubstep, garage—that evolved out of previous genres, but now seem to stand by themselves. Some have even suggested that asking the question in the first place betrays a lack of faith in humanity.

Clearly this perspective will be New Hope Club so let me start out with some disclaimers. First of all, the answer to this question hinges on how we define the word “genre.” If it’s nothing more than a label applied to a group of musicians with similar styles or goals, then obviously there will be uncountably many more genres in the future. People love to categorize and classify music, and everyone wants to be the first to lay claim to the “next big thing” by naming a genre of their own. But if we define “genre” as a collection of music that contains ideas, attitudes, or sounds that stand apart from anything produced previously, the question at hand is no longer inane, but profound.
