Are some of these movements really considered avant-garde?
I mean is post rock really all that avant garde? Don't get me wrong, I like post rock, and I believe it's pushing the boundaries for what music can be, but I don't know of any musicologists who would put it in that category. Does anyone know of any literature that refers to post rock as avant garde? Same goes for avant-garde metal, avant-prog, and krautrock.
Same goes for cyberpunk. Is that an avant-garde movement in literature? I thought it was just a genre.
- There should be verification for inclusion of links on the template. If the article on the topic doesn't show it is considered avant-garde, then it should be removed from the nav box. Fill in the edit summary (bar above "save page" button) to explain the rationale for removal of content. Ty 18:21, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Criteria for exclusion 
What are the current criteria for inclusion on this list? Given the above discussion it seems that there is none. Thus I propose that a mention of the genre as avant-garde on the genre's article and preferably in a cited source be used as criteria. Thus I propose that if the item is not described as avant-garde anywhere in its article, and one wishes to do so, one may remove the item followed by posting a comment here regarding the removal according to this criteria (under a heading such as "Removed: Uncited").
