  • Punk/screamo = no talent shit. Twangy old C&W also makes my ears bleed.
    • bostjan64
      I taught music in a middle school right at the height of the screamo craze. I think it's safe to say that the musical style didn't age well. But punk is still out there. I just saw a twangy old C&W guy last weekend at one of the local events here. I think that style of music has really lost its momentum. Almost all newer C&W has lost its twang. It sounds like pop/rock, just sometimes with a steel guitar or fiddle buried somewhere in the mix. Oh well.

      Mumble rap
  • Rap. Because they all have stupid names. Q-Tip? Crunchy Black? Idiots.
    • mushroom
      I thought it was because after rhythm and lyrics, melody and harmony were considered great advances in music.
    • Archie Bunker
      The lyrics of most of the songs are by no means great advances. All they seem to sing about is niggers and bitches and money.
    • mushroom
      From a mainstream song: "Whoa, the seed inside ya, baby, do you feel it growin'? Are you happy you know it?" Paul Anka "Having My Baby" (1974)
    • Archie Bunker
      "Off a whole gram of molly, and my bitch think I’m trippin’. Now I’m clutchin’ on my forty, all I can think about is drillin’. I hate fuck shit, slap a bitch nigga, kill a snitch nigga, rob a rich nigga." - Also from a mainstream song from some idiot named Snap Dogg. (don't forget the 2 g's) They just can't play it on the radio. There might be rhythm and a beat, but that's not music. It's just some dude bitching about life and how he's gonna get his and fuck everyone else, with a beat behind it. As I said, dumb.

      Archie Bunker, I don't like rap music, but I do find rappers hilarious with how they dress, speak and act when I see them on TV. I was watching a BET stand up comedy show about a comedian who asked: What's next for the younger black folks who like to sag their pants? Carrying their pants and waving them to people as if they are in a bull contest? I was laughing so hard. LOL
    • Archie Bunker
      BET is racist.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Archie Bunker, which is why they make fun of white people.
    • Linda Joy
      Its still racist.
    • Archie Bunker
      But you're racist if you make fun of blacks. And Linda's right.
  • Almost every style of music I once thought I hated, I have stumbled on an artist who made something I enjoyed. Still, I generally don't like some genres. I loved older pop music, but everything post-2010 seems mostly bad to my ears. People eat the stuff up, but I don't get the lyrics, don't appreciate the "beat," and can't make out the melody.
  • Anything American - it's just screech noise with a generic beat, trying to pretend it's music.
    • Archie Bunker
      Yeah, but Metallica rocks.
  • No, but there are a few I don't like to listen to for very long, like rap, opera, and throat singing.
  • I wouldn't use the word hate, yet I strongly dislike the repetitive pop music that goes ahh ooo ahh, ahh ooo ahh, over and over and over again. Very annoying.
  • Heavy Metal. It's crazy how headbangers shake their head violently in time with the music. It's like they're possessed. 😈
    • Archie Bunker
      Blasphemy!! Metallica Rocks!!!
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Not in my books.
    • bostjan64
      Yeah, a lot of death metal bands are just trying to be like Possessed, who are credited with pioneering the genre.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      bostjan64, not only possessed, but crazy and depressed. Their heavy metal songs are vulnerable to heartbreak and other potential risks.
    • Archie Bunker
      Not a big fan of death metal, 64. But Possessed and Metallica both hail from the Bay Area which is kinda cool.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Archie Bunker, death metal is worse. Many people on the internet ask how do metal fans understand the lyrics.
    • bostjan64
      I mean, it may be difficult to understand death metal grunts and burps, but can you understand any of the following other genre's lyrics: grunge rock, mumble rap, screamo, eurodance, or even operatic aria? I've found that most people who complain about one listen to at least one of the others. And, I don't care if you are fluent in every European language, Dabba Di Dabba Die means nothing, and Ma-ee-ya-hee Ma-ee-ya-ho mean nothing. It's not that I think it's bad, it's just a double standard that most people use to justify their tastes.
    • Linda Joy
      Well, Jenny, what do you expect? They've probably suffered brain injury! If not from head banging then from the drinking and drugging and fighting with their 'friends'. Or is that just the ones I've met?
    • bostjan64
      Most metalheads I know are pretty down-to-earth. There are a few bold exceptions, but, in my experience, it's the punk rock crowd who likes to fight and get drunk and do other mind-altering things.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, I can see why many headbangers have suffered brain injury. That's why it's difficult to understand their "grunts and burps" as bostjan64 said. LOL
    • Archie Bunker
      Just the ones you've met, Linda. I've taken my young daughter to metal concerts and alot of their people there were just like me. 40's, and with their families.
  • Rap Crap is worst of all. IT IS JUST A MAN TALKING WHILE A MONOTONOUS NOISE ACCOMPANIES HIM. THIS GIVES ME A HEADACHE. The lyrics are often barbaric, e.g. beating women, killing cops, etc. Hip Hop is also terrible. Country & Western has some shrill notes that make me cringe.
  • Punk. I don't like heavy metal either, but punk is worse.
