Top 10 Most Overhated Music Sub Genres

Sub genres only for this list not main genres. These music sub genres really are.... overhated.

The Top Ten

1 Glam Metal

This genre isn't even that bad the intentions and the image maybe and the fact that its called metal even though it's not it's just Hard Rock but that's the thing it's Hard Rock and Hard Rock is one of the best music genres and honestly their are some damn good songs in this genre and some underrated ones some even touch metal but sadly MTV only played the poppier songs instead of the harder/heavier songs but this genre to me is good and hey at least it has memorable guitar solos something that Metalcore and Nu Metal seems to be lacking, as you can tell I would rather have Glam Metal than Metalcore or Nu Metal. - christangrant

They don't dress the best but they their still better then most Death Metal.

Glam Metal's Musicians intentions weren't good. But their's songs are good. Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, Whitesnake (they're somehow glam metal) have lots of good songs. - zxm

2 Post- Grunge

I have never seen so much hatred towards a genre some people treat this genre like it's the spawn of Satan or some thing and I honestly don't get why I mean its not the greatest genre ever but its far better than Metalcore and their are good artists and songs in this genre again not the greatest genre but nowhere near the worst of all time. - christangrant

It's not unique but at the same time not as bad as people make it out to be.

3 Nu Metal

I used to give this genre so much crap but it's not that bad actually.

4 Death Metal

I can understand if you don't like Death Growls but you have to admit the instrumentals in death metal are amazing if you want an amazing Death Metal band that isn't just about Death Growls try Opeth you might like them. - christangrant

5 Black Metal
6 Alternative Metal Alternative Metal Alternative metal is a music genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres normally associated with metal.

Mainly by people that debate whenever or it's "real metal".

7 Rap Metal

Granted it's not as good as Trash Metal but it's at least decent.

8 Rapcore

Not my favorite music genre but it's not as bad as people make it out to be.

9 Grunge Grunge Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock and a subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s .

Granted it it's not the most unique sub genre but it's not the worst either.

10 Glam Rock

Especially Paramore Glam Rock enough said.

The Contenders

11 Alternative Rock Alternative Rock

Self explanatory.

I don't think. This is one of the most popular music genres of all time. - zxm

12 Metalcore
13 Industrial Metal

Bruce Dickinson: "We're not like Rammstein" What's wrong with Rammstein!?! - SoldierOfFortune

He didn't mean it musically, more like how the band works - SoldierOfFortune

14 Pop- Punk

Kind of overhated but there's more overhated music genres.

15 Power Metal
