Do people even know what underrated means? The most famous classical composers of all time are not underrated. I'm pretty sure at least 90% of the world population has heard at least a few of Beethoven's songs, whether they know it or not. Tech N9ne, on the other hand, is great, but not a lot of people know about him. - Zach808

...That doesn't make any sense. Just because 80% of Africa doesn't "hear anything out of their tribe", it doesn't justify your choices. By that logic, any artist is underrated because "they haven't heard anything out of their tribe". - ArchAces

Why is Beethoven at #1? Where's Marianas Trench? Madvillain? Run the Jewels? The only person deserving of the top 10 that is there is Tech N9ne. - WonkeyDude98

Nope, Beethoven deserves the first position. There's no classical music in the famous radios. - malamJONES

A favorite of all the Eedjits, who seem to like him a lot better than Beethoven. Yeah, and "Madvillan", he is a lot better than that Mozart guy, everybody knows that.

Who Keeps Putting Justin "Drew" Bieber On These Lists? Seriously what? - 12cc

He should be a drawer not a singer. - malamJONES

No radio coverage whatsoever for this young star, despite his consistency and talent.

14Tyler, The Creator

I don't know who underrates composers like Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi or Wagner, so that's the first choice on here. And why Yoko Ono and Justin Bieber? They should be on a list of overrated musicians. - SuperGauland

I think we've found the first Classical music fanboy lol. But really, Ty is one of the greatest modern day rappers ever, very underrated on this site. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
