IMHO, Taz, genres are a mixture of opinions as well as levels of categorization. Genres may have several levels of categorization, e.g. rock, folk-rock, rockabilly, instrumental rock. Purists may have minimal genres, e.g. rock, country and western. Many songs have several genres, in particular early rock which segued from an amalgam of blues, country and pop. Individual people may call a tune rock, other people may call the same tune country and western. It's not simple.
