So Joe the guitarist and Chris the drummer are metalheads, Sandra the bassist loves soul, Alex the keyboardist is obsessed with punk, and Bob the vocalist always wanted to be a jazz singer. After a few arguments over what musical direction the band should go in, they eventually come up with a solution: all of them!

Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly is when an artist mixes seemingly disparate genres together. After all, [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot if two genres are already awesome on their own, then combining them will result in something even more awesome]], right?

For works which use multiple, disparate genres ''without'' actually mixing them together, see GenreRoulette. Compare and contrast with GenreBusting, where a work fits into no genres rather than multiple. See also AvantGardeMusic.

* ProgressiveRock, to a tee. Progressive rock started (arguably) when Music/KingCrimson tried to create rock music from classical influences rather than blues ones. After 30-plus years of experimentation by many bands combining all the musical genres known to mankind under the 'Progressive Rock' banner and coming up with wildy varying results, Many prog fans think that if you're in a prog band and not invoking this trope, then you're just not doing it ''properly''.

* Music/OfMontreal's recent albums, especially ''Skeletal Lamping'', where, as one reviewer stated, "Barnes leaps through genres that don't even exist, from acid glam psychedelia to sixth dimensional heroin pop." This is a bit of an understatement - listen to "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHFUXH4PP5c Id Engager]]," keeping in mind that in its place on the album, it comes off as extremely ''restrained'', an obvious radio single. The other single from the album has the last minute or so replaced with a loop of the chorus to hide the MoodWhiplash. Their sound includes funk, disco, R&B, talking songs, psychedelia, indie pop, and jangle pop.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Babymetal}}, one of those acts that could ''only'' have come from Japan, blend Japanese pop music, pretty much every genre of metal in existence from PowerMetal to BlackMetal, and several forms of electronic music, amongst other genres. They very well may have created their own genre.

* Music/KingCrimson might be classified as ProgressiveRock but [[GenreBusting they go well beyond convention]]. They regularly mixed ClassicalMusic, {{Jazz}}, and HardRock with hints of Proto-[[HeavyMetal Metal]], Proto-{{Industrial}}, {{Funk}}, NoiseRock, and JimiHendrix. [[AwesomeMusic Not]] [[AwesomeMusic/KingCrimson only does it work]], but they were doing this in 1969.

* With all these references to JimiHendrix, it's easy to forget that he played slightly noisy Rock and Roll mixed with {{Blues}}, various types of {{Jazz}}, {{Funk}}, PsychedelicRock, and R&B with PunkRock attitude.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/RunDMC, during the fierce rivalry and segregation that existed between rock and hip-hop in TheEighties, were one of the few acts to seamlessly combine the two together. Their unique style was the basis of the RapRock genre, and they proved that the two can coexist together. They are one of the few that were highly respected by both camps, which holds true to this day.

* Don't forget OingoBoingo, who started out as a performance art troupe (The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, inspired by FrankZappa, above) which mutated into a mix of rock & roll, ska, scat, jazz, punk, new wave, funk, world music, and several other genres (whew!). Former members Steve Bartek (who got his start with psychedelic band Strawberry Alarm Clock) and DannyElfman now write film scores, many of which are {{GenreRoulette}}/NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly themselves.

* On its musical side, ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has the legendary song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VT6LFOIofRE Libra Me From Hell]] which is the musical embodiment of the [[BeyondTheImpossible show]] by fusing ''rap and opera.''

* There is perhaps no better example of an artist embodying this trope than composer YokoKanno. All forms of music are mixed together at her whim. Music/TheSeatbelts were a dream band fronted by Kanno, formed for the express purpose of making the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' soundtrack, and they lived and breathed this trope.
