From Hilarious Animal Dub to Daft Punk Innovations

Dubstep, a genre originating from Europe, and the inspiration for these 12 dubstep-drowned delights, is hitting the streets running. Within the past few years, the music industry has seen the rise of DJs like Deadmau5, Avicii, M83, where the dreary music and remixes have become all the rage -- and not only at raves.

The unlikely genre favorite has inspired a collection of dances, songs, infographics and has even fused into other musical genres (like classical) and been featured on popular TV shows such as 'So You Think You Can Dance.' Though there are intense haters often likening the genre to sounding like clumsy robots moving against each other, it has evolved to become the choice beats of the new age.

It seems North America takes after Europe more and more in regard to music, as is further evidenced through European-inspired music festivals, like Osheaga and Coachella.
