A word people use incorrectly to name all of Electronic Music.

Really, "Techno" is its own genre of Electronic Music. It consists of a BPM range from 120 to 150 and a 4/4 drum pattern.

*sigh* people have no clue, techno is not listened to by ravers, it's a form of techno most commonly called rave music.
Techno is everywhere, whether it be from subtle synthesizer based special effects to actual songs.
Please don't mistake rubbish for techno, it is a very unique form of electronic music, different to the rubbish played on kiss100 everyday.
Don't go with the majority like eminem, he even requires techno based background music, but then again rap is crap.

The type of music that cant be dissed or talked shit about. With lyrics or no lyrics it still sounds awsome and makes people wanna dance. It doesnt try to show off like idiot rappers (ie. 50 cent, Ja rule, ect.) Its a form or electronica music that has lots of energy in it and makes you wanna dance!
Techno and other types of electronica music are most commonly played in clubs because you can really dance to it!

I remember 20 years ago or so, the word 'Techno' was used more similarly to the way the word 'Electronica' is used now.

Over time, 'electronica' has seemingly assumed its position at the top of the tree, and 'techno' has sort of un-evolved into a less broad, or more specific term.
