Flip Music is a genre of music created and performed by Humans.


The "slam-bam" beat[1] of flip music is descended from 21st century metal.[2] Flip music is popular at dance clubs, which are common destinations for Marines and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers on leave.[3] Many people dislike flip music, including Captain Jacob Keyes, SPARTAN John-117,[2] Corporal Locklear,[2] Private First Class Wallace Jenkins, and Privates Riley, Mendoza, and Bisenti.
