Most Overrated Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Punk Rock Punk Rock Punk rock is a subgenre of rock music. It usually has rebellious lyrics and down stroked power chords played on guitars. Bad Religion, Sex Pistols, and Green Day (actually pop-punk, which is still punk in a way) are a few punk rock bands. The subgenre influenced thrash metal because of it's down stroked more.
42 Crunkcore
43 Opera

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?

Are you OK? This is actually one of the most UNDERrated genres. It takes lots of talent. - Metal_Treasure

Opera is overrated? - zxm

44 Post-Punk

A bunch of whiny pretentious 'goth' kids. That's why.

45 Progressive Rock Progressive Rock
46 Blues Blues

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

48 Ska Punk
49 Surf Rock
50 Garage Rock
51 Protopunk
52 Garage Punk
53 Glam Punk
54 Horror Punk
55 Cowpunk
56 Punk Jazz
57 Neo-Classical Metal Neo-Classical Metal Neoclassical metal is a subgenre of heavy metal that is heavily influenced by classical music and usually features very technical playing, consisting of elements borrowed from both classical and speed metal music.

This shouldn't be on this list. It's actually underrated and takes lots of talent and extreme technicality - only virtuoso players can do this (Yngwie, Marty Friedman, and so on). - Metal_Treasure

58 Experimental Metal
59 Classical

Classical music has "Class" as you might say, and you are right, it blends members of bands and orchestra into a fluent mix of all members of incredibility as the vociferation from "Pop Music" as thinking drugs and butts are the best thing ever. Classical is amazing; Classics are amazing; out of the new age, in my opinion Daniel Pemberton is the best. However, I agree with any composer, but I shalt not agree with people who like Pop Music. Because when talent comes to mind, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran are out of the picture.

Classical music is underrated

If you ask me, classical is underrated. - LostDream258

It is so boring jazz is way better if you are talking about complex music
