Algorithm is a style of music that is popular in and almost entirely restricted to Algeria.
The algorithm style consists entirely of rhythm. Algorithmic songs contain no lyrics. Their pounding beat, which usually tries, and sometimes succeeds, to mimic the throbbing of a horribly diseased human heart, tends to be extremely repetitive, making it boring for most people who have not grown up on algorithm music.
To date, algorithm does not qualify for any category of the Grammy Awards, the American Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the MTV Video Music Awards or any of the other myriad mindless music awards bestowed on multimillionaire and other musicians and alleged musicians throughout the world. There have been occasional protests about this discrimination against algorithm by awards organizations, but because algorithmic music is virtually unknown outside of Algeria, those protests have been quite confined and ineffective.
