41Intelligent Dance Music (IDM)

Responsible for the greatest progression in modern music in the last 25 years

People should appreciate the complexity of this genre.

42Hip Hop

True there is controversy with rap and there are plenty who hate but it has become huge in recent years even in some case over taking rock, in-fact it is nearing overrated.

Hip hop is the most underrated genre ever! Most people don't like it, because it is not singing... Well, not every song needs to be like: lalalala Also people hate it because of trash talk. you can't say the truth without trash talk and rap speaks the truth. Lyrically, hip hop is the best genre out there

43Gospel

Love every gospel songs they are underrated - paasadani

44Screamo

This is one of the genres that people do not listen to the lyrics of the songs and just assume it is about killing people because they are screaming.

45Gothic Rock
46Trance
47Electro Swing

Electro Swing has an old taste to it with a some electronic still audible. It's not overwhelming but it's there to set a beat. People tend to bash on old music and go for those brain dead rappers and pop artists. Electro swing has neither of those factors. It has a very nice rhythm and sound to it. It should be given much larger attention. - JKrevy2284

Electro Swing has a bit of an old taste with some electronic still in there. The combination makes it my favorite genre of music. Try listening to Caravan Palace (Best Electro Swing Artist)

Caravan Palace got me into this genre. It's a very fun genre and has some unique songs to it. - Mcgillacuddy

48Black Metal

That's the thing. You don't hear many black metal bands on the radio because they're not popular.

50Metalcore

This genre may be hated, but it's actually pretty good - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

Most people hate on this genre just because the fangirls mostly only like them because one member is apparently hot
(which is true, and bmth comes to mind) however Metalcore is a great genre that should really not get as hated on as it does (again, BMTH comes to mind. )

51Country

Kieth Urban, Luke Bryan, and Carrie Underwood. Enough Said. - CardboardBox

Every seems to confuse it with the commercialized pop country crap that is in no way realated to it

All the Broadway singers are better than pop singers, but they don't get enough credit for their work.

It's a new, strong genre that everybody can relate to but nobody has ever really appreciated it. Poor Vaporwave, it deserves some love!
