Dada music is based off the ideas of the dadaists from right after WWI -- as they were trying for a form of Anti-Art, the musical dadaists were trying for a form of Anti-Music -- a form that poked fun at the whole musical establishment. However, in the same way that the Dadaists ended up making a lot of technically great art, so did the dadaist musicians make technically great music, though with a sense of anarchy and humor lacking in other genres.
