Top 10 Music Genres that Have More Talent Then PopIn my opinion there are genres that have more talent then top so let's get to it. For this list sub genres will be included.
The Top Ten
Classical and other genres have more talent then pop. However Classical is the genre that has even more talent to it. With Classical it sounds good, not overplayed and without it I'm not sure if music would be relevant. I'm going to be honest I'd rather listen to something from Mozart or Beethoven then something from Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry etc. because Beethoven and Mozart actually put talent into their songs!
Mozart, Beethoven? Really? Why not: Vivaldi, Paganini, Schubert, nor those who make the soundtrack for games like The Elder Scrolls series?
Hell yes. Doesn't necessarily need to be 1st (it doesn't QUITE take the level of creativity that classical does, though it gets pretty damn close with bands like Dream Theater, Green Carnation, and Epica), but definitely deserves 2nd place. Despite some crappy bands like about everything in Stoner Metal, most grindcore, and most of the nu metal scene, the vast majority of metal takes more talent than Twenty One Pilots or Justin Bieber would ever think of. Most artist on the radio don't deserve to lick John Petrucci, Joe Satrinani, or Buckethead's boot. - Psi
This genre of music is far from being talentless because you have talent and skill in guitar, bass, Drums and Vocals which in pop only one of those is used Vocals but to me I prefer hearing complex instrumentals rather than just Vocals - christangrant
While I'm not a huge metal head myself, at least Metal has more talent then Pop music when comes to well... anything.
Metal is the 2nd most demanding genre after classical but in some areas metal is even harder. A classical vocal coach wrote about metal singers: "There is a visceral dramatic intensity driving this singing. Many metal singers are tenors who sustain much higher, much longer than operatic tenors are ever required to."
Also, Pavarotti's vocal range is 2 octaves, 2-1/2 notes, Whitney Houston's - 2 octaves, 4 notes, Rob Halford's range is over 4 octaves, Mike Patton's - 6 octaves, 1/2 note. - Metal_Treasure
It generally has a better sound then Pop music.
LOL LOL lol
The name of this subgenre says it all and it is what you think - it combines the complexity of metal and classical.
Examples: Blind Guardian - Wheel Of Time, Sacred Worlds. - Metal_Treasure
Love the picture - RecklessGreed
Has more talent than Pop in just every way.
The absolute best examples of this genre are packed to the brim with creativity. Even chiptune that sounds somewhat similar to pop instrumentals can clearly have a lot of effort put into it, whereas all terrible pop stars have to do to make a name for themselves is yell into a microphone, autotune the noise and play it back over instrumentals they didn't even make. - Entranced98
A lot of it is actually more complex than you may think.
HAHA Barely better then Pop music all it is singing fast and rhyming which is barely better then auto tune.
You know what, listen to these songs and then come back and tell me that rap has barely any talent.
Accordion by Madvillain (get Genius for those lyrics)
Aquemini by OutKast (more specifically the last verse)
u by Kendrick Lamar
C.R.E.A.M by Wu-Tang Clan (or any song from Enter The Wu-Tang)
Duel of the Iron Mic by GZA
N.Y State of Mind by Nas
Ultimate by Denzel Curry
Great Day by Madvillain
Any song by Aesop Rock
Doomsday by MF DOOM
Forget the fact that these songs boast high quality metaphors, messages, and literary elements, but if utilizing so many rhymes in a verse while making sense AND STAYING ON BEAT (and sometimes off-beat for artistic effect) is a showing of barely any talent, then I'm listening to the wrong genre in earnest. - SwagFlicks
Not pop,pop rock - zxm
Has to play guitar and also harmonica and write songs with great lyrics and meaning - zxm
With generally fast guitar riffs, this genre has a lot of good songs and meaning that it obliterates pop music from 2 feet away.
