46 Horrorcore Rap

Very deep, meaningful and emotional songs. Some of the most talented artists I know are horrorcore/Occult Rap. definitely underrated. - PhattyTerrell

Love it! Pretty cool genre, sadly, people think we're sadists. We are very misunderstood.

Its slim shady type stuff. Really awesome to listen to! Love it!

47 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 .

Not really underrated, just the people that are posers only listen to nirvana's one song and get so hyped and never listen to them again

Grunge isn't dead, its just resting.

I would call it underrated, because basically any grunge band that's not Pearl Jam or Nirvana is underrated (especially Mudhoney). - Gruunge

Grunge is my life.Even though other grungers say'grunge is dead,move on'
I'm a true grunger. Popularity isn't important but Grunge deserves more than this.

52 Hip Hop

True there is controversy with rap and there are plenty who hate but it has become huge in recent years even in some case over taking rock, in-fact it is nearing overrated.

Hip hop is the most underrated genre ever! Most people don't like it, because it is not singing... Well, not every song needs to be like: lalalala Also people hate it because of trash talk. you can't say the truth without trash talk and rap speaks the truth. Lyrically, hip hop is the best genre out there

53 Synthpop
54 Intelligent Dance Music (IDM)

Responsible for the greatest progression in modern music in the last 25 years

People should appreciate the complexity of this genre.

55 Garage Rock
56 Electronic Rock

My favorite genre of rock next to Industrial Rock. Both which are seriously underrated.

57 Electro Swing

Electro Swing has an old taste to it with a some electronic still audible. It's not overwhelming but it's there to set a beat. People tend to bash on old music and go for those brain dead rappers and pop artists. Electro swing has neither of those factors. It has a very nice rhythm and sound to it. It should be given much larger attention. - JKrevy2284

Electro Swing has a bit of an old taste with some electronic still in there. The combination makes it my favorite genre of music. Try listening to Caravan Palace (Best Electro Swing Artist)

Caravan Palace got me into this genre. It's a very fun genre and has some unique songs to it. - Mcgillacuddy

58 Classical Crossover

Too classical to most people, not taken serious by fans of classical music. It is a genre that has great lots of potential and it can be very creative. It's performers are not only singers who are "too bad for opera"!

Sometimes also called "Classical Crossover'; exemplified by younger singers like Jackie Evancho.

59 Country

This is actually overrated.

Kieth Urban, Luke Bryan, and Carrie Underwood. Enough Said. - CardboardBox

Every seems to confuse it with the commercialized pop country crap that is in no way realated to it
