A unique design by Paul Sheeky, the Periodic Table of Musical Genres has all the well known musical styles in the familiar format of the periodic table of the elements. Where possible, genre’s correspond to some aspect of the elements themselves. For instance Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, so that had to be Pop, the heavy metals become heavy metal and it’s spin-off genres, the un-reactive noble gasses become background music and the highly reactive halogens are the politically reactive Reggae, etc. See a large version of the poster graphic here.
