70 Emo

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

Not a big fan of Emo, but I am discovering the genre and all I can say is that it's not about hating your life and whinning about the things you don't have. Songs have good lyrics, good instrumentation and everything you need. So, I think people hate it for no reason.

Come on! So many people hate emo! They don't even know what is emo.

72 Pop Rock

Pop rock is underrated compared to pop,but nowdays its becoming more famous - zxm

Extremely undrrated, despite the acclaim of Coldplay, The Betales, and Lady Gaga - ProPanda

73 Bluegrass
74 Garage Rock
75 Dance Pop
76 Contemporary R&B

Contemporary R&B is like pop but way more chill and smoother vocals - MistyMay113

77 Chamber
78 Kpop

It is overrated on the internet, this coming from someone who loves kpop. But in real life almost nobody likes Kpop, at my school, nobody but me likes Kpop.

79 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.
