Parameters

color  
Colour used for the headings. See WikiProject Music/Music genres task force/Colours.
bgcolor 
Colour used for the headings' backgrounds.
subgenerelist 
Article containing the complete list of subgenre
current_year 
set to yes to include a link to the "2014 in <genre>" article at the bottom of the infobox. Link will update automatically for new years, once the "<new year> in <genre>" article has been written. (If no article has been written for the old year nor the new year, it will redlink the new year's article to encourage its creation.) If the link does not update, try purging the page. Has two optional further parameters:
current_year_title 
The "2014 in <genre>" function assumes that the current page's title is the genre's name (i.e., if you use this on classical music, it will link to "2014 in classical music"). If that is not the case, use this parameter to specify the genre's name. The annual-update feature will work just the same.
current_year_override 
This overrides the whole parameter, for if the desired article uses some unusual title formulation (e.g. "2010s in classical music"). If this parameter is used, the link will not update for new years.
