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 Nu Metal

I used to give this genre so much crap but it's not that bad actually. - BoredJeff02

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. - BoredJeff02

3 Alternative Metal Alternative Metal Alternative metal is a music genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres not normally associated with metal.

Mainly by people that debate whenever or it's "real metal". - BoredJeff02

4 Glam Metal

They don't dress the best but they their still better then most Death Metal. - BoredJeff02

Eh. Except the really sexual songs, but comparing Death and Poison? Death of course. - Lucretia

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

5 Rap Metal

Granted it's not as good as Trash Metal but it's at least decent. - BoredJeff02

6 Rapcore

Not my favorite music genre but it's not as bad as people make it out to be. - BoredJeff02

7 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. - BoredJeff02

8 Glam Rock

Especially Paramore Glam Rock enough said. - BoredJeff02

9 Death Metal
10 Alternative Rock Alternative Rock
