Top Ten Music Genres that are Hated for the Wrong Reasons

The Top Ten

1 Pop

So many complaints I've heard about pop music are either incorrect, or don't necessarily make it bad. Like, the stereotype that they don't use real instruments. Not only can electronic music sound great (and music using real instruments sound like crap), but a lot of pop music does use real instruments. Also, it takes talent to make a good pop song, just like any other genre. Wanna know why an extremely limited selection of music is remembered decades later, pop or not? Because most of it, regardless of genre, is forgettable and/or crap. - Zach808

I like when some pop elements are used in rock songs - zxm

I don't completely hate it. It's gotten worse when 2014 rolled around. - 906389

I don't hate it. I've just grown up. - Britgirl

10 Dance

The Contenders

11 Metal

If someone wants to make some satanic or controversial album, they should be able to. Doesn't mean I have to like it, but it isn't a reason to attack the genre either. Some of the darkest, ugliest music can be great if it's done well. - Zach808

There are SO many RIGHT reasons. No need to mess around with the wrong ones.

Yes, I know why some people hate it. Because of some extreme metal genres. for example - black metal. when some people who've never listened metal music, they find it hard to listen these songs. but I can assure that prog metal and heavy metal will rock for them. - zxm

Metal is sometimes attacked for the wrong reasons like people saying its satanic. - Arcxia
