Top Ten Worst Things About Pop Music In 2014


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Nicki Minaj's Anaconda being nominated for a Grammy

This is another reason why I don't like the pop industry, songs that are horrible are nominated for the best stuff! But, according to society, that's how it works - kaitlynrad11

22 Teens nowadays are thinking that rock is too loud

Stupid close-minded teens who never explore other genres.

I used to think that, when I was, like, 6
Now I listen to LOTS of rock
Idiots - kaitlynrad11

23 Hello Kitty

Don't get me wrong, I love Avril Lavigne's music, but I really hate this song. I don't think it's racist, but the song itself is bad.

24 Hangover - Psy

Oh yes, and Ellie Goulding didn't get her #1 hit in the U.S yet.For all the idiots who are going to say Love Me Like You Do and Burn hit #1, they hit #1 in the U.K. (mainly because she lives there). Lights is her top charter in the U.S., whitch hit #2

I thought when I first heard about it "Oh great, antoher song from psy. " But then I noticed the guest apperence was from snoop dogg and I knew it problay couldn't be THAT bad considering I like California Gurls and if Katy used him, I guessed it'd be okay. Then I heard the song and saw the video and I was like what did I just see? I probably won't be hearing K-Pop anytime soon.

25 Becky G Becky G Rebbeca Marie Gomez, better known by her stage name Becky G, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and actress.

Her voice is the most annoying voice I've ever heard, I can't even stand one second of her voice. She makes me wanna listen to kesha and Rebecca black.

Great cures for "Shower":
-The Cure - Disintegration
-Peter Gabriel - So
-XTC - Drums and Wires
-Blondie - Parallel Lines
-The Replacements - Let It Be
If you've heard nothing from at least one of these, you aren't human.

26 Lip-syncing during "live" concerts

Its gotten much worse since complicated dance moves became part of many acts.

This has been around for a while - gemcloben

People who do this are mean - TheMeaningOfLifeIs42

27 U2 forcing their album to literally everyone

I love U2 and all but forcing someone to buy an album isn't a good way to promote an album. Other than that,U2 is an awesome band. - RiverClanRocks

Its not a bad album. for most music fans these days, it will be the best album on their phone - gemcloben

I literally got this iPad with a U2 album on it. I was thinking, 'Wha..." - WonkeyDude98

Why didn't Nirvana do that?

28 Lips Are Movin
29 Shawn Mendes' music

Isn't that good that they stop Rae from being on the radio

He is EVERYWHERE. Last year, there were girls BEGGING the gym teacher to play his songs during class. I swear, I was going to explode - kaitlynrad11

They play his Life of the Party and Something Big garbage every 15 MINUTES. He stopped Rae Sremmurd from gaining fame across Canada and which rapper is he gonna stop now? I hope to make a diss track that will literally end his career. - SelfDestruct

30 All I Got by Hendersin
31 Music still not progressing

Album after album after album after album after album after album after album... No musical evolution whatsoever in pop music! - IronSabbathPriest

32 Poser rappers
33 Hip hop getting worse
34 Rock music almost completely disappearing

No, it won't. Rock albums still get into the Billboard 200.

35 The only good music is from video games now (and classical music)

No, a lot of rock and alternative bands still make great music nowadays.

You just can't beat classical! At least in today's music. - RiverClanRocks

36 Jason Derulo Jason Derulo Jason Joel Desrouleaux, better known by his stage name Jason Derulo (an alternate spelling of his surname), is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. He is best known for his singles such as "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets", "Want To Want Me", "In My Head", and "Whatcha Say", all of which have more.

Wiggle is the worst song he has ever released. Thank god Want to Want Me is actually decent.

This talentless hack made a breakthrough this year, making not one but THREE awful hits this year, from the disturbing Trumpets to the racist Talk Dirty to the all-around asinine Wiggle. - WonkeyDude98

37 Bieber Fever
38 The Flaming Lips collaborating with Miley Cyrus on their fourteenth album

What has gotten into Wayne? Doesn't he have any respect for himself in his image?

The guys went from "She Don't Use Jelly" to clear sellouts in a flash.

39 Taylor Swift's 1989 was the biggest-selling album of the year

Someone like Mario kill taylor swift

THIS is why she should've stayed country.

She will get best-selling album of the year even thought she making country music like Fearless and Red that almost become best-selling album of 2012 but was block by 21 by Adele. - BeaM456

@Anonymous: Mario hasn't made a name for himself since 2009 and THAT was by making one of humanity's worst songs. As for a year where music was little worth caring about, 1989 and 1000 FoF where probably the closest things we had to real albums (The Pinkprint was considered Nicki Minaj's best album to date, how preposterous does that sound). - WonkeyDude98
