I agree that prescriptive theory exists everywhere and influences everything.

Every genre has its prescriptions that must be followed, its own genre theory, or else you fall outside the genre and are something else. You're not house music without certain rules being followed, you're not rock music without certain rules being followed, you're not hip hop without certain rules being followed.
