41 Industrial Metal V 1 Comment
42 Baroque
43 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

44 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.

45 Electronic Rock

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

46 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.

47 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

48 Gothic Rock Gothic Rock
49 Drone
50 Ambient Pop
51 Metalcore

People hate metalcore for being 'repetative' and 'all songs sounding the same'. Metalcore does not have a stale sound. Just some the extremely popular metalcore bands have a 'stale sound'. The smaller independant bands almost all sound different.

Most people hate on this genre just because the fangirls mostly only like them because one member is apparently hot
(which is true, and bmth comes to mind) however Metalcore is a great genre that should really not get as hated on as it does (again, BMTH comes to mind. )

52 Country

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

53 Screamo

This is one of the genres that people do not listen to the lyrics of the songs and just assume it is about killing people because they are screaming.

54 Rock Rock Rock music is a music genre that was created in the 1950s . The genre really got popular in the 60s, 70s and 80s . It generally consists of a guitar player, a drummer, bass player and singer . There are a lot of rock subgenres . V 1 Comment
55 Trance
56 New Age

Why's this at number 43?

57 Video Game Music
58 Pop

Who the hell said pop is underrated. its rather too much over rated

Pop is so NOT UNDErrated!

Um pretty sure who put that pop is overrated is kind of living under a rock. If anything pop is overrated. In my opinion pop SUCKS

Not underrated at all but definitely overhated - Mcgillacuddy

It's a new, strong genre that everybody can relate to but nobody has ever really appreciated it. Poor Vaporwave, it deserves some love!
