Top Ten Worst Things About Pop Music In 2014


The Top Ten

1 All the songs are about butts and sex

See this why music is crap now. Every single song out there is nothing but sex, sex, sex! What's worse is that retarded fangirls seem to like it and they don't give a crap if they get offended or not. The music now sucks and I hope something good happens. Metal should really come out and shut down pop down.

Metallica could have probably have been capable of doing something like that a long time ago--but, alas, all they care about is money. -_- - LostDream258

And when young girls listen to the radio they see these women as role models, they are very bad role models who just objectify themselves! - BunnyC

A lot of the pop songs nowadays require little-to-no imagination in their writing and are often quite sexist. - HollyRolo

Yes! Why do people think this is entertaining? It's just disgusting! And so unoriginal since that's what every song is about now.

2 Attention whoring

Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, even Jennifer Lawrence tried so hard to get our attention. I don't respect them!

The best thing to do is avoid awful singers like Justin Bieber (the once piece of crap from the otherwise amazing Canada) or Miley Cyrus ("queen" of twerking). - Comments

This chick's gonna fall off soon. I'm hoping she does. I'm surprised she's still relevant. cause I guarantee that the reason people are still buying her stuff is because they're so obsessed and attracted to her FAKE butt. Is there any person out there with that mindset of not caring about looks? Who would look at Nicki Minaj and say "I don't care about her looks she still sucks as a rapper." Same with a girl who would look at a hot guy singing but can't sing (I'm looking at you Justin Bieber fangirls).

Who cares about looks. Looks don't really mean anything. The skills do. The looks, the money, the fame, the fortune, the popularity, etc, all don't mean jack squat. What really matters is your talent. And Nicki Minaj doesn't have that. She sucks at rapping (Justin Bieber doesn't have any talent either).

Rolling Stone of all things ( the magazine) PRAISED THIS SONG! Why? It is literally the song to outdo Wrecking Ball. Meanwhile, bands like Rush are pushed off by the mainstream. Why? They probably have more talent than most of the mainstream pop songs, if not all of them! There goes my " rant", it's about time I vented it off... - MusicalPony

Just that one awful song is enough. - BigBrotherYESTotalDramaNO

This song is pure garbage. I like SOME of 2014 songs, even though some of them were crap, but this, this is the worst song of 2014 and one of the worst songs ever made.

5 Victoria Justice, Meghan Trainor, and Iggy Azalea got more fame

Victoria Justice isn't that bad, but the other two are HORRENDOUS, - Comments

On point. How the hell Meghan Trainor got a Grammy is beyond me. But not all pop music is bad. I really like Melanie Martinez's Cry Baby. It was the first time I heard an album like that. And I'm on the lookout for more.

Victoria Justice is not a very talented singer, Meghan Trainor 's songs are so annoying, and Iggy Azalea's song are mostly crap.

Good thing was how I quit Pop music before I even heard of Iggy Azalea or Meghan Trainor. I'm dead serious, WHO IS IGGY AZALEA? - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6 Auto-Tune

Most pop stars would not have a singing career at all if not for autotune.

Everyone uses it nowadays, even the most talented singers. It's unfortunate that bad singers can now have music careers because of autotune. Stars like Selena Gomez don't write their own music and also don't have a good voice, and yet she stays famous because her voice is made to sound good.

I was looking for this. Well this thing made a untalented girl to famous. Selena do use this. Once I went her concert and she was singing stars dance. Believe me her voice was fully broken.

Thanks to auto-tune, most singers of today have no talent. Because auto-tune is what they rely on to make them famous. I really don't like it. - FennikenFan9

8 Taylor Swift made a permanent switch to pop

People are insane to like pop "music". I do admit to liking some, but Seether, Three Days Grace, and Trivium are much better. - Turkeyasylum

Yeah I agree. I mean I do like some pop, but the only pop I don't like is constant talk about butts, partying, sex, drugs, you get the idea. I mean, how can anyone listen to that kind of crap? I'm being dead serious.

Did someone just say that I am insane for liking pop? Lol.

Anyway, I honestly don't mind Swift doing this, I only had a problem when they got overplay. - WonkeyDude98

Yea... The swifties at my school were really mad at that. - Minecraftcrazy530

No she said she want to make country music later sometimes after she free from Big Machine Records and have feeling to write country song.*This Is Truly,Truly True.If You Don't Believe Me, Search On Internet or Wikipedia. - BeaM456

9 Repetition
10 Only about 6 songs on the radio's rotations

Yes! My social studies teacher plays the local radio station whenever we work and they had just played that crappy all about that bass song and guess what? Four minutes later, they played it again. You can literally hear songs that will be played at least twelve times a day! - HappyFlower

One of them is that HORRIBLE Don't Blame It On Me song! They just simply refuse to stop playing it!

When your alternative radio station starts playing pop music you just want to hit your head against a wall repeatedly, especially when its played over and over again.

More variety is necessary.

12 Bang Bang

Made by The Three Idiots in music.

I'm just saying. If I wanted to listen to a song called Bang Bang, I'd listen to the one by Rammstein. Not this one.

Jessie and Ari just rock the whole song Nicki= Ruined - UnconditionallyCatholic

This song isn't that bad.

17 Miley Cyrus made music

Miley isn't music, she's a piece of trash you would find on a sidewalk! - kaitlynrad11

To be fair, Miley Cyrus's live rendition of Summertime Sadness was amazing.

I don't call it music. It's called garbage.
