Top Ten Most Underrated Music Genres


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Garage Rock
82 Contemporary R&B

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

83 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.

84 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.

85 Rap

Rap is underrated, because too much people think it's just idiots that can't sing cussing over a beat. But there are (especially in the past) lots of exceptions. I think this is like Metal, where people think it's just people screaming around.

I am SICK and TIRED of these death metal fans bashing rap because they think it's just black people talking about money, sex, and violence. I barely know anyone who actually likes rap, which disappoints me. Rap is one of the greatest genres of all time, right up there with rock and R&B.

So much people have said it's overrated, it's underrated at this point

Rap is no way underrated.there are a lot of rap fans today,if rap is underrated then genres like folk rock,classical,alternative pop will blown away - zxm

86 Downtempo
87 Dub
88 Indian Classical Music

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

89 Punk Punk Punk rock is a subgenre of rock music. It usually has rebellious lyrics and down stroked power chords played on guitars. Bad Religion, Sex Pistols, and Green Day (actually pop-punk, which is still punk in a way) are a few punk rock bands. The subgenre influenced thrash metal because of it's down stroked more.

Why is this so underrated it is fast paced rebellious and at the same time catchy there are many bands that are punk and good like the misfits, the Ramones, the clash, bad religion and iggy pop to name a few

Punk is not underrated.neither pop punk nor punk rock.though its not famous as 70s or 80s but still it isn't underrated - zxm

90 Jam Bands

The dead, allman bros, phish

91 Tech Trance
92 Minimal Techno
93 Black Metal

That's the thing. You don't hear many black metal bands on the radio because they're not popular.
