Humans need genres, music is something most people don't really know much about and it is much easier to describe something as "Post-neo-industrial with bluegrass influences" than it is to explain what it is they think they heard.
I'll grant everybody a pass since I find it impossible to describe most music in a way that the person who hears it has any idea what I am trying to say.

I've had people tell me I play guitar like Frank Zappa. I don't.
I had somebody thank me for playing the Bowie cover. It was something I wrote.

If they come to hear the music, have a good time and tell their friends then I am happy. The psuedo-specifics don't matter in the slightest.

It took a chunk of my life to get here and I am still not sure where "here" is.
