Top Ten Most Disrespected Music Genres

The Top TenXW

1Rap

Allegedly there are still tons of radio stations, schools, public places and people in general that make it a priority to censor all rappers no matter what their message is. It's crazy how a lot of people say rap is ruining music when various metal, rock, and even classical artists have been influenced by it. The only genre that gets treated similar to this is metal, but at least metal is heavily respected throughout a majority of music fans. Nevertheless, I'm let down to say rap is one of the most, if not most, disrespected genre. - yaygiants16

A great genre often smeared by the cruddy music of its biggest artists as well as the stereotypes it has unfortunately devolved into. - Mrveteran

Not actually a music genre at all. It is an important form of urban poetic expression, but definitely not music.

2Country

It seems as if no one takes country seriously anymore. Sure, good country songs are all over the Billboard Hot 100 now, but only between 50 and 100. Too many stereotypes are placed on this genre, like how it's just about beers, trucks, guns, and cowboys, when only mainstream country tells those messages (by mainstream, I mean the country that actually makes it above 50 on the charts). It's also irritating when people pick at the tiniest things to make fun of in country, like their Southern accents (which if they grew up in the South they can't control), or their facial hair (come on, Johnny Van Zant had a pretty thick mustache and I don't see anyone making fun of him). So, yeah, country is pretty disrespected, especially nowadays. - yaygiants16

I actually like ONE country song, but then again, it's about dying. - AnonymousChick

6Metal

It's all satanic. It's all just noise. All its vocalists scream not sing. These are arguments often put forward by people who hate heavy metal, despite not bothering to listen to much of the music. I understand that the genre's heaviness and intensity can be too much for some, but if you can stomach it, heavy metal is not only great music, but gives you visceral thrills, gives you an adrenaline rush and can sometimes offer more depth (both musically and lyrically) than other genres at times. Add to the fact that it has multiple genres to cater to everybody and some of its biggest names are inarguably some of music's best bands and you've got one awesome genre which is sadly often overlooked due to its image, not the music. - Mrveteran
