Inventing excessive, ridiculous and unnecessary sub-genres, cross-genres and meta-genres to describe a style of music, your personal taste in music or the music of a specific artist. Particularly prevalent in the fields of electronic dance music and extreme metal.
DJ: "I play kind of hyped-up progressive deep house with a kind of minimal/fidget flavour to it"
Everyone else: "Don't fucking genrelise mate"

Metaller: "I'm really into Nordic folk-deathcore and symphonic black grindcore the moment"
Everyone else: "Yeah? Great. So you like metal, right?"

Music journalist: "Have you heard of Aquacrunk? It's the new big thing from Glasgow. Everyone's talking about it"
Everyone else: "Aquacrunk? Are you fucking joking? Get a life mate."
