88 Contemporary R&B

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

89 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

Pop is underrated on the internet because everyone slags it off but would be too cowardly to spew their hate face to face.

90 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.

91 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

92 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

93 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

94 Jam Bands

The dead, allman bros, phish

95 Tech Trance
96 Minimal Techno
97 Black Metal

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