Top Ten Most Underrated Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Bluegrass
62 Broadway

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

63 Chamber
64 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.

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.

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

God, this is an amazing genre. It's a shame that it rarely appears outside of anywhere else but video games.

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

It's not really a genre. It's more likely traditional/folk music of India. Every country has its own traditional, folk music. All of these could be classified as traditional music. - zxm
