Well, you know, people don't know me as a country artist and I am new to the genre. But that's how I grew up singing.
All great works of literature either dissolve a genre or invent one.
Charles J. Shields
'The 5th Wave' is sci-fi, but I tried very hard to ground the story in very human terms and in those universal themes that transcend genre. How do we define ourselves? What, exactly, does it mean to be human? What remains after everything we trust, everything we believe in and rely upon, has been stripped away?
When this genre of music started in America, Metallica was up north in California, we were in Southern California, Anthrax was on the East Coast. We each developed our own metal music, and after 30 years, we're still playing our metal music.
In horror, character development is often pushed aside in favor of the shock value. The best genre movies to me are movies like The Shining. You had a connection to the characters in that film.
The 'Western' is the only genre whose origins are almost identical with those of the cinema itself.
SF isn't a genre; SF is the matrix in which genres are embedded, and because the SF field is never going in any one direction at any one time, there is hardly a way to cut it off.
The only genre I have any problem with is musicals, but that's just my own tastes it's nothing to do with the films.
The difference between graphic novels and web comics is even greater than graphic novels and story boarding. Web comics really is a legitimately separate genre.
Rock n' roll as a genre is different from pop and hip hop: it is about bands, and that for me suggests brotherhood, family, friendship and community.
Steven Van Zandt
I'm quite a rational person. I'm not very superstitious, but I really do enjoy horror as a genre.
I think people do sci-fi a huge disservice by lumping it as some sort of bizarre subculture genre when I think everybody's lives are impacted by sci-fi at some point.
I want to make my music a genre that people can immediately identify: something that never existed.
I have no favourite genre or style but treat each novel with the same care, imagination and craftsmanship. It's as difficult to write a crime or a children's novel with a touch of style and grace as it is a literary novel.
Crime is a very hard genre to feminise. If you have a female protagonist she is going to be looking after her mum when she gets older; she is going to be worried about her brother and sister; she will be making a living while bringing up kids.
Hip-hop is a beautiful thing. I think that the music genre itself has created more millionaires than any other music genre before it, especially in our community.
So there's nothing more provocative than taking a genre that everybody who's cool hates - and then making it cool.
But what was interesting about what the Who did is that we took things which were happening in the pop genre and represent them to people so that they see them in a new way. I think the best example is Andy Warhol's work, the image of Marilyn Monroe or the Campbell's soup can.
No one worries about genre when they're dancing. They're not asking themselves, 'Is this song a dubstep song?'
I love music. I love every kind of extreme sort of music, and many different genres, and if I were to have to dedicate myself to just one kind of genre, I would feel kind of gypped. I'd be like, man, I wish I could do this or that. And really all it takes is trying it out.
I'm glad a genre writer has got a knighthood, but stunned that it was me.
But when I hear a great song, I can't help but be inspired by it, regardless of whatever genre that song falls under.
For me, great music doesn't just have to fall into one category or one genre and I love appreciating all kinds of music.
Most of my fans, if you were to look on their iPods, you'd see every possible genre of music represented in some capacity.
For me, writing a song, I sit down and the process doesn't really involve me thinking about the demographic of people I'm trying to hit or who I want to be able to relate to the song or what genre of music it falls under.
I am a genre lover - everything from spaghetti western to samurai movie.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

We must not always talk in the market-place of what happens to us in the forest.
