Most Overrated Things In Music

These are the things in music that people seem to care about, and probably shouldn't. Music is about producing a work of art that sounds good and evokes an emotion. All this other stuff is mindless filler, detrimental to the music, or just a waste of time talking about.

What is not included in this list is specific people, bands, or songs. Those are better left in other lists.

21 Parappa The Rapper's soundtrack

If you're a truly hardcore music fan,

you should know that Um Jammer Lammy objectively has way better music than Parappa 1 (Parappa 2 is a bit more debatable, however) - xandermartin98

23 Rock and Metal

Don't misunderstand me, I love this genres, but I think they aren't the only good genres out there. And, for the Dancing Ability comment: Music isn't only of ears, is also of heart =) - mattlol

Does rock and metal only means bands like Queen, Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Metallica or Iron Maiden? Didn't other genres use rock musical style in their songs? Bob Dylan, Maroon 5, Stevie Ray Vaughan or Neil Young. - zxm

This is actually underrated. I could name a bunch of bands that most people have never even heard about. That'd take a lot of space, though. - 906389

Not as overrated as modern rap that everybody today praises. - AnimeDrawer

One of the things that can really get on my nerves when a person gives a reason for not liking a band or an artist is this reason right here. This was also something that I heard a lot from Hip Hop or Pop fans. Like sometimes when I ask a person why he or she doesn't like some rapper, the reason that person doesn't like that rapper isn't because there lyrics have no actual meaning to it, which in some cases they surprisingly do, and it's not because they sometimes dress silly, but the reason that person doesn't like the rapper is just because that they're "old". So... Even though there may be another rapper out there who has worst lyrics, you're telling me that he's still a better rapper just because he's not "old"? Doesn't something seem a little weird there? - guyonawebsite94
