Top Ten Most Underrated Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

62 Dubstep

Mainstream dubstep is just noise, but some independent dubstep is very different from that. - PositronWildhawk

I'm mixed between dubstep. Depends on how well the artist makes it instead of just mixing random sounds together and calling it a song. Skrillex is a good dubstep/electronic artist - Mcgillacuddy

It's not just fooling with computers. I've tried, its very confusing and it takes patience.

64 Gothic Rock Gothic Rock
65 Garage Rock
66 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. )

67 Drone
68 Dub
69 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.

70 New Age

Why's this at number 43?

71 Bluegrass


72 Future Bass
73 Alternative Pop

Someone added this? anyway I think its very underrated.but its more least known than underrated.people sometimes confuse alternative rock with it.but alternative pop is pretty much different from alternative rock. - zxm

74 Vaporwave

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

75 Speedcore
76 Broadway

All the Broadway singers are better than pop singers, but they don't get enough credit for their work.

77 Chamber
78 Emo

I love emo. (I know this sounds really whiny but head me out) people just don't understand. It's way more meaningful than the 'music' that dominates the charts. People get so annoyed when people call pop inauthentic (this just turned into a rant about pop). But emo music doesn't deserve the bad rap it gets. It's not just people whining about how their life sucks; just listen to the lyrics of the songs, there's actual meaning in them.

Nowadays people are WAY TOO POSITIVE. They even forgot how to recover someone's broken heart, or be friends with a sentimental guy. Emo can sound really whiny, but it has true meaning in these songs. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Emo has the best lyric style, they are strange and hard to understand, but once you do a swarm of emotions will come over you, a new perspective. All with a punk rock style. - ToptenPizza

ToptenPizza, I think you made a P! ATD reference and didn't even know it.

79 Drum and Bass

DnB is so underrated in America. But at least it's popular in the UK. - ZeroBlaster

80 Irish Traditional

So many great songs and great voices, but yet so little mainstream attention.
