Most Overrated Music GenressamuelMCL7
The Top Ten
All what people sing about in this today is: Sex, Romance, Breakups, Partying, Butts, Drugs, Alcohol, and Clothes. Awful lot of use of auto tune. Lyrics overusing: don't stop the party tonight, baby, baby, baby, you drive me crazy, I'm so into you, I want you to, La, La, La, and of course: I love you. It also overuses someone being featured in the song, "Love will find a way" Theme, Forced Rhyming, Repetition, Four Chord Progression, and Key Changing. Also, singers have been rhyming lyrics that don't make sense at all, such as: "When I was a geisha, he was a samurai, somehow I understood him when he spoke thai." - Your Love by Nicki Minaj, or: "New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits, Chinese food makes me sick."- Summer Girls by LFO. On the other hand, music from 1963 - 1994 was complete opposite. ENOUGH SAID.
Except Michael Jackson, everyone in pop music didn't make art. They only produce something just to sell records and stuff.. Put some chilly chorus and there you got another crappy song that everybody listen to, I don't know why, because there are a loot of better music genres and better bands. POP (except MJ) ISN'T EVEN ART and makes music just crappier with every song they release.
There are many talented pop artists out there. Don't just judge based on what's on the radio. - 3DG20
It's tough to decide between pop and rap, but at least in rap, the rapper usually writes his/her own lyrics. Pop stars write nothing, and in recent years, they can;t even sing anymore either since synthesizing voices and lip syncing are now socially acceptable.
Why is metal above hop hop?

SOME pop is good and ALL rap is crap? SOME rap is good, look up for "Real Rap"
Ok, I got to shut down this subject AGAIN. Rappers rhyme from their heart. It's what is a reflection of their reality or what's real to them; so it comes naturally to them which is some of the beauty of it. Just to clear up: Lil Wayne, B.o.B or 2 Chainz DO NOT count as rappers. Their lyrics are 100% better than any rock, pop or indie song you will ever come across, and I would be lying if I said this wasn't true. Listen to J Cole's Crooked Smile or 2Pac's Keep ya head up next time you want to say that rap is sexist, and listen to Kendrick Lamar's How much a dollar cost or Wesley's theory next time you want to say that all they rap about is drugs and money. And if you believe that rap doesn't take skill, try and rap Eminem's Rap God or Kendrick Lamar's Rigamortus then get back to me
Rap wouldn't be so bad if they didn't have vulgarity in every line. I never understood why country is trashed though, since some bands like Rascal Flatts aren't that bad, but maybe that's just me

Dubstep does not deserve all of the hate it gets. There are a lot of great, melodic, meaningful dubstep songs out there. Most people only listen to the mainstream dubstep songs and quickly assume that these songs represent the entire dubstep genre. I highly urge listeners to dig deeper and discover some great dubstep songs.
Wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, pow, pow, wub, wub, wub, wub, dubstep even takes the quality of this comment down.
Dubstep takes no talent to make. Anybody can make a "good" dub step track, it just takes time. No talent. It takes years of lessons to play the guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, etc. Which is prominent in metal, rock, classical, jazz, blues, and country. - ryanrimmel
I think that most people who voted this have no knowledge about it. There are a lot of good dubstep songs though and I just hate how this genre is way too over-hated. My favorite EDM subgenre is melodic dubstep and it's underrated as heck and there are way too many overrated genres here so please - WGPRacerFanlolV 9 Comments
I honestly think country is more overplayed than metal.
I hate country so much it's not funny
Country pop sucks but I do like more of the real stuff
Worse than metalV 6 Comments
Hip hop and rap is basically people swearing into a microphone
Um, no. You probably only listened to Lil Wayne and Eminem and made this comment. Listen to Run DMC and come back to me later. - Mumbizz01
All trash lyrics, nothing else
Hip-Hop is a culture when will metalheads learn? - MLGPoossySlayer6969
Hip hop is a type of dance, it's music should not count. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Bryson Tiller is not RNB he is just doing trap with a bit of singing
Just look most music-related lists, it's nearly impossible not to find something metal-related at or near the top. You can like whatever the heck you want to like, O.K? I'm just sick and tired of hearing these close-minded edge-lords proclaim how metal is the only real music and how pop isn't music. Look, there's good music in every genre, you just have to be open-minded and dig deep. Most of the metal the people on this site listen to is very mainstream, yet they claim to hate mainstream music. How hypocritical! The very fact that most people on the site are willing to defend metal and say that it can do no wrong is biased. If metal's you're favorite genre, then fine. There's nothing wrong with enjoying something, and you can say whatever you want to say, but please try to be open-minded. Guess what, people can like pop music and actually have good-taste. Not all pop music is bad, just like how not all country music is bad, or how not all metal is good. Everyone has their own tastes. ...more - TheThomasThomas
Rap and pop shall always rightfully be on top, as both are awful, but like heavy metal or not, it's not the only genre of music that should exist, unlike many of their fans insist. Take some time to try something new, and surprise yourself how good something else can be. In three words, be open minded. - PositronWildhawk
While Heavy Metal is awesome, it is overrated. It is still a great genre, its just not quite as good as it is made out to be from all the hype. It's not near as bad as rap and pop, though.
While it is overrated on this site when talking about music in general it's not. - XxembermasterxXV 33 Comments
Speeding up a song with the pitch raised and using a picture of a generic anime girl is not remixing.
This shouldn't even be considered a music genre. Nightcore is trash and ruins good music. Those who are saying whatever type of music genre requires no skill, look at this trash. Nightcore is literally just putting a song on Audacity and speeding up the pitch and tempo, and putting a wallpaper of an anime character. -_-
It's even easier to make than dubstep! - Dominicmgm
Dubstep is not even bad if you listen to the correct artists and willing to dig for it. - MChkflaguard_Yt
I can have some respect for pop and rap since some takes talent, but I have zero respect for nightcore, weeaboo music, plagiarism whatever you call it, it's just someone making money out of other people's songs how someone can say this is better than the original baffles me. - XxembermasterxXV 4 Comments
I used to not know what this was. Now I wish I was back when I didn't know what this was.
Say something bad about BTS, Girls Generation or TWICE and 10 million rabid fangirls will flip out and brainwash you with their propaganda (i.e. nonsensical reasons on liking k-pop in full caps, cringeworthy date requests to "oppa", why the haters should die, and korean spelled wrong, all in terrible grammar).
Please stop, Hong Kong is a rabies free region! - MChkflaguard_Yt
J-pop is better. - PerfectImpulseX
ssooo many squeaky annoying vocals especially girls!...
only few of them are beautiful...
so many one sided fans..keep on saying " yay! kpop wons or kpop is the best! "...
It totally depends on the genres of metal. Metal genres like Neoclassical, symphonic, folk etc are actually underrated. These bands are also very underrated. - zxm
Underrated. - 906389
metal is the shortened of heavy metal - HCmetalhead
In other words, every single genre of music is overrated. That's what this list implies, anyway.
I was going to vote for Hair Metal (not saying it's bad, in fact, I kind of like it) but then I saw Black Metal. Hair Metal might sound repetitive and unoriginal, but at least they have good guitars. Black Metal on the other hand is even more repetitive and unoriginal, as well as that, it has a horrible fan base too.
The only talented thing about this genre is the vocals, and they sound disgusting sometimes. Also, it is difficult to comprehend and it has no rhythm what so ever. There are some good Black Metal bands, but the problem is, there aren't many of them.
Haha very funny. The most underrated genre of metal overrated? Sad. Just Sad. - GreenDayFan21
How is it overrated when it is an underground genre. - XxembermasterxXV 3 Comments
I don't even consider this music - CommanderLudwig
Garbage 90% of the time - Merggy
Garbage 100% of the time and people saying metal fans need to be more open minded yet they also say metal is bad hypocrites!
Blink-182, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Sum 41, Rise Against and many others... They aren't necessarily bad, but extremely overhyped in my opinion.. - Flav
This is underrated - RoseCandyMusic
Worst genre ever... - Brobusky
Pop punk is a good genre but I think pop punk is underrated ask a
c hild if they know Green Day or blink 182 or mx px trust me there like
w ho? a nd I'm like what is wrong with you
One of Metal's most unfortunate pushes into the mainstream. Rap and Metal just do not mix real well.
Although Rock and Roll is my all time favorite genre. I will admit that it is overrated, but it should be a lot higher.
Rock is not overrated most people hate it nowadays, we need to bring back rock music
No this is the best - SOX3005
Best music genre. - PeeledBananaV 1 Comment
I'm personally surprised this isn't higher.
It's not overrated when you get bullied for liking it... But yeah, crazy fandoms
Alternative became overrated... There are few good bands, but the vast majority just doesn't seem creative to me anymore... They don't make music according to their name. There's nothing "alternative" about alternative anymore
Alternative is the best! HALSEY (best singer ever), Melanie Martinez, Imagine Dragons, 21 Pilots...
It you are going to give reason why alternative is good at least mention alternative artists rather then pop crap (although some of the bands/singers you mentioned are good). - XxembermasterxX
Alternative is correctly rated, not overrated or underrated. - malamJONES
Wouldn't say it's overrated but it's not underrated either.-DarkBoi-XV 4 Comments
How is Jazz overrated it is actually underrated. - Rambles
This is overrated? I would say either underrated or correctly rated - shawnmccaul22
Not overrated at all. - Metal_Treasure
I love Jazz!V 1 Comment
A bunch of whiny pretentious 'goth' kids. That's why.
Except for Alice in Chains and a bit of Pearl Jam, it's just lame. Kurt is not a good singer or guitarist. He just got in the way of Dave Grohl
Are you kidding me? Indie Rock is one of the most Underrated genres of music
I think it overrated by its fans. It seems to be Indie Rock and nothing else. It's hard to introduce them to anything that sounds even remotely country.
Ha ha, Indie rock overrated? - zxm
I thought disco was dead? - LostDream258
Bro Country Production 101
- Gather loads of cliche redneck stereotypes and put them in a 4-minute song
- Sing stagato in wrong pitches and magnify the errors with autotune
- Throw in lyrics about beer and girls in blue jeans
- Don't forget to objectify both sexes
- Look as "manly", go half naked, wear a century-old leather hat and be as gross as possible, then film yourself in such "sexy" attire having sex. Use it as a music video
- Final touches: Put in 15 broken banjos and guitars!
- Money! - MChkflaguard_Yt
Are you OK? This is actually one of the most UNDERrated genres. It takes a lot of talent. - Metal_Treasure
Wait... People actually like opera?
It's just pure garbage. The equivalent to a Broadway show today (maybe worse) Neither music nor theater, maybe just lame circus act?
Opera is overrated? - zxm
Overrated piece of crap. Mainstream metal that poser fags only like because of the breakdowns. Some bands are good but this shouldn't even be considered metal. Same with deathcore
Mixing two genres that should not be mixed.
Oldies is not a genre. - Dominicmgm
OLDIES ARE TOO POPULAR!
Copycat sex songs with no talents and an annoying beat. - MChkflaguard_Yt
OVERRATED IN LATIN AMERICA
It's all about those aesthetics.
Heavy Metal is a product of Rock. And Rock is a product of Blues. If you like rock, then you should thank the blues, because that's the root of all rock. The guitar is an African instrument, and the slaves would play the blues while working, and it turned into a popular genre. And later, Rock and Roll was born as a variation of blues, and then Metal was born as a variation of Rock.
Still think The Blues is overrated? - ryanrimmel
