        The table below shows the common assumptions made with each genre of music.
       I.e. the way dark clothing tends to be mostly used in ‘Heavy Metal’ and the ‘Grunge’
        genres. Along the top bar there is a list of popular music genres and a long the left
       hand side there are a list of conventions and stereotypes for a wide range of genres.
         In my opinion, this chart shows some of the common external and internal codes
        and conventions that govern music genre. This has in a way helped me to develop
         my understanding of frequent consumptions and expectations of specific genres,
           helping me to further understand what an audience expects of a music genre.
