Flip Music is a genre of music created and performed by Humans.
The "slam-bam" beat of flip music is descended from 21st century metal. Flip music is popular at dance clubs, which are common destinations for Marines and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers on leave. Many people dislike flip music, including Captain Jacob Keyes, SPARTAN John-117, Corporal Locklear, Private First Class Wallace Jenkins, and Privates Riley, Mendoza, and Bisenti.
