Most Underrated Music Genres On TheTopTens


The Top Ten

1 Blues Blues Blues is a music genre and musical form originated by African Americans in the Deep South of the United States around the end of the 19th century.

The original blues is quite underrated on the site. However fusion blues genres are more popular than original blues. But still not very popular as rock, pop or metal. - zxm

So true. The only person on this site I know that talks about blues is Britgirl. - BrianScott01

Yes, it is underrated. Thankfully, there are a couple users (particularly Britgirl and BrianScott01) who have helped to spread knowledge about the blues and give it some recognition in their lists. - Gg2000

9 Electropop
10 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.

22 Grindcore

Grindcore is so good. It gets so much hate but as a matter of fact, it is a very good sub-genre of metal. When people think of grindcore on TheTopTens they usually think of goregrind or pornogrind, that is why people don't like it. Grindcore is different to pornogore. - Oliwally

24 Neoclassical Metal
25 Bubblegum Pop
26 Pop Rock
27 Indie
28 Folk Metal Folk Metal Folk metal is a fusion genre of heavy metal music and traditional folk music that developed in Europe during the 1990s.
