Users have been scratching their heads trying to figure out why this type of music is in their most played lists for 2017.

Spotify users around the world have been discovering which tracks, artists and genres they have spent the most time listening to in 2017, thanks to the annual Spotify Wrapped graphics.

However, many streamers have been pretty confused upon discovering that among their top genres, next to Rock, Hip Hop or even Country, is something called 'Stomp and Holler'.

Nope, we don't know either.

Upon further investigation, it would appear that this is the oddly worded name given to the likes Of Monsters & Men, The Revivalists and all those other bands that sound a bit, um, stompy and hollery.

Anyway, everyone is confused, delighted and occasionally horrified to discover just how present this genre is in their lives:

Not for everyone is it...

Oh, and if you are still confused, here's a wee snippet.

The Lumineers - Ho Hey (Official Video)

Pretty appropriate name tbh.
