Genres you can't stand and why.
« on: January 13, 2014, 10:22:19 pm »
Pretty self explanatory.

Rap - I hate what it's become. Don't get me wrong, 90's rap is fucking AWESOME. It's just the modern rap that I hate; nobody cares about how much money or bitches you have.

Country - Most of it's boring and too sappy for me. Exceptions being Johnny Cash, Jerry Reed, and a few other artists I can't name atm.

Most Metalcore, Most Death Metal - This is going to surprise a LOT of people. I don't like a lot of these genres because they just seem too monotone to me. I'm the type who likes melody to music. Now, when it comes to Melodic Death Metal and Melodic Metalcore, that's a WHOLE different ballgame.
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

I generally dislike rap, because it's a) very hard to actually understand the lyrics, and b) if you can understand the lyrics, it's always sex and drugs and illegal crap like rape. That, and it's usually extremely derogatory towards specific demographics as well, like black people or gay people (they use f@g way too much). I don't much care for pop, metal, or screamo either. Any time I can't understand the lyrics, I probably don't like it. Slamming drums and screaming indecipherable stuff is not what I consider music.

Well, not all metal is screaming and indecipherable lyrics. Take a look at Iron Maiden and Judas Priest! :lol-fox:

But yeah, I see what you mean, all the "screamy" side of metal I don't like all that much either.

Country - Justified. My mother has always listened to it, in the car, at home, ALL THE TIME. I just got so tired of it, that I just don't like it anymore.

Other than that, I love a little of all genres, and dislike a little of all genres.

Modern country. So many songs literally sing about the same things as exemplified by this song. It's just so repetitive and shallow and just all around boring to listen to. Like Lacie said, I love artists like Johnny Cash and the like, but country isn't anything like that anymore.

Modern rap truely (autocorrect almost made me post frisky instead of truely WTF) has gone down a crap ton of morale. Nowadays, there's always the word "f*ck", "b!tch" and the n-word. However, there IS worse genres: Brazillian funk. It's nothing like the "funky" funk. It's basically a beat combined with sound effects and raps about young girls twerking with their hand in the air. And drugs.

The majority of Top 40 stuff. There's some I like, but the majority of it sounds so similar that I can't tell the difference between songs.

Modern rock isn't just bad, it's boring as hell. It pretty much lost the balls it had in the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Agreed... so agreed.

And also, like NightF0x said, I hate most of the Top 40 stuff as well. There's SOME Of it that I like (Katy Perry's new album Prism is AWESOME, for example), but a lot of it sounds the same. And also, I'm really tired of pop songs trying to sound like house music. You know what I mean. Ever hear a song on the radio from a station that plays nothing but mainstream crap, and suddenly you hear an awesome sounding electronic song? SURPRISE SURPRISE, if it's by Pitbull or Usher, or in that vein of artists, it's a pop song trying to be house. -_-

Country: I grew up listening to country music; I got sick of it quickly. Don't get me started on new country, all of them have stupid lyrics (srsly? a Happy Meal?).

Rap: Loud, obnoxious and rude. Im nothing like that; therefore, I don't want to listen to music like that.

New Pop: Annoying and auto-tuned to heck. Barely any effort goes into these songs with all the new synthesizers and voice enhancing doodads they have.

Most rap today is absolute crap. It's thoughtless and talentless, and yet these people make millions of dollars doing it. Although I dislike the style of rap in general, a lot of the independent and underground artists I've heard have intelligent and clever lyrics, so at least I can give it that.

Pop. I'm not sure I need to say much more. *shudders*

Modern country is like pop but 10 times worse. You mix the deep south (Which I hate) with pop, and you get the most repetitive, brainless music you've ever heard. I've heard "Chicken Fried" by the Zach Brown Band at least 10 times at the wedding receptions at work, and I can't believe anybody would actually like that song enough to play it their wedding.

(Fun random fact: My stepmom and Zach Brown used to date. If she had stayed with him she'd be rich! :p )

Jazz.

There's no particular reason, I just don't like the typical combination of wind instruments found in it, nor most of the singers. I can stand a little bit of it, but I'm very picky about it.
I'm not sure why I don't like it, or rather, where my dislike stemmed from, though. Guess it's just not my thing.
