I don't understand why some people insist that bands and/or songs have to be placed in neat little boxes with such specific labels on them.

Obviously, descriptions helps tell someone what direction a band might be in, but when it gets down to sub-genres of a sub-genre of a sub genre, it starts getting a bit silly.
Exactly my thoughts. I don't really care about labels. Or let's say, I like the labels "rock, pop, jazz, classical, country, hip-hop, etc" like the big ones. All the rest...well let's just listen and decide if it's to like or not!
