Top Ten Things That Should Happen to Music In 2021


The Top Ten

1 Lana Del Rey releases happy and fun music for once

I don't know if her happy and fun music would be good as her typical sad music. All I know is that it would be different - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

She always dope and sad. Release something exciting. - JaysTop10List

How can we decide what will happen in 2021? - Turkeyasylum

I think this should happen because her one kind of upbeat song National Anthem was amazing. - lovefrombadlands

2 One Direction and their fans could go away

One Direction has died down in popularity for the most part. Now we have Five Seconds Of Summer which is basically One Direction 2.0 except not nearly as bad. - RiverClanRocks

One Direction will hopefully be going one direction, gone.

Perfect option! I do like the idea! - Fan_of_Good_Music

They're gone. Now we have 5SOS we are even worse. - WonkeyDude98

5 Queen returns with an new album

Imagine if Freddie Mercury rose from the dead. - ethanmeinster

This would be amazing. - Alpha101

Somebody go dig up Freddie's grave. If not, lets pray his ghost reunites with Queen. - Catacorn

A lot of metal or rock members are dead.. Unless they can get new members that are just as good ( probobly not) - FerrariDude64

6 The Beatles also return

Bit hard, two of their members are dead.

I'm praying that this would happen. John rises from the dead and everything. Lol. - Alpha101

If they somehow could how amazing that would be!

That was unrealistic and scary

7 Nicki Minaj stops rapping and releases decent music

She is actually pretty good at singing, I don't see her rapping and she has terrible song lyrics, if anyone tries, they can make a good song good. - keycha1n

Nicki is a pretty good rapper. Just needs less autotune and have better lyrics. - ToptenPizza

Honestly, she'd be better off as a singer than as a rapper.

Or she stops swearing - jmepa1234

8 Eminem collaborates with Spongebob on a Spongebob soundtrack

That would be funny because there was an idea like that on "Top Ten Episodes That Should Be Created In Season 10 Of SpongeBob SquarePants - PatrickStar

That would be pretty funny, id buy it :3 - MattDeBat

That wouldn't be so bad.

That would be so hilarious. - Catacorn

9 Lady GaGa will change her robotic voice

You know her autotune that makes her voice robotic? - JaysTop10List

10 Miley Cryus stops being mental

She needs to stop being mental in a bad way.

The Contenders

11 Kate Bush releases three more albums
12 Eminem makes MMLP3

It would be AWESOME! - DK

This isn't happening unfortunately. In Bad Guy, he said this:

"So one last time, I’m back/Before it fades into black and it’s all over/Behold the final chapter in the saga/Trying to recapture that lightning trapped in a bottle/Twice, the magic that started it all/Tragic portrait of an artist tortured/Trapped in his own drawings/Tap into thoughts/Blacker and darker than anything imaginable/Here goes a wild stab in the dark/As we pick up where the last Mathers’ left off"

What this means is that after MMLP2, it's over. He will continue releasing albums, but the Marshall Mathers saga is done. There's no way he will be able to bring the spark back in the way he did twice before. - WonkeyDude98

13 Less songs about partying, sex, butts, and drugs get played on the radio

It's always been this way, from the '60s onward. It's just a little less subtle now. All these folks going on about anacondas could take a lesson from Sparks. Now THAT's how you sing about edgy topics. - PetSounds

Can we start singing about real life issues and social statements, or things with deep meanings, and gear away from Tick Tocking, or shaking it off, and anacondas, bang banging into places, having blurred lines, wiggling and rap? - ToptenPizza

14 Jackie Evancho and Victoria Justice get more fame

I think Jackie deserve but Victoria maybe can't because she don't make any album. - BeaM456

15 Miley Cyrus goes back to her original clean music

I loved her music! It was so uplifting and kind! Now she just acts like trash. :(

This happened four years early. - ReltihFloda

16 Metal music becomes popular again

Hell yeah, that would be awesome! Don't get me wrong people, I appreciate all sorts of music, but Metal is WAY too low, it needs to get to a better spot. The most common reason I think for Metal music being this low is because of peoples' different interpretation of how things are and what they mean, especially being called satanic music. But, enough talking... Metal becoming popular again would be amazing, imagine people banging to some Iron Maiden again! M/ METAL m/ (With respect for other music too. )

At least in the 80s Metal actually got played on the radio and now it dosen't EVER

17 Rap is outlawed

Rap wouldn't be so bad if we had guys like Young thug and Iggy to keep it in the gutter, and it doesn't help that Tupac's dead

The world of music and the world itself will be a better place!

Rap is outlawed? Didn't they try that before? - WonkeyDude98

Rap has already become a cultural disease. Let's eradicate it. - PositronWildhawk

18 Avril Lavigne writes more songs

I love Avril's music. I hope she gets better, and makes more songs. - Catacorn

She has Lyme Disease at the moment, so I don't think she can make more until she cures off it. - Swellow

19 Justin Bieber kills himself

At the age of 27?! That's a disgrace to all the great musicians that died at that age!

Wow, how ironic. You picked just the year to say this that Bieber would join the 27 club. - WonkeyDude98

That would be the best moment for the music generation.

20 Taylor swift shuts up about her crappy ex boyfriend songs

She's only had 6 songs about breakups. SIX. - WonkeyDude98

That happened - lovefrombadlands

Even better, she tells her sellout ways to go f--- off by releasing 1990.

21 Justin Bieber realizes his mistakes and apologizes for everything he's done

This would be amazing, but nearly impossible, almost-blonde, and he's a jerk. - funnyuser

22 Muse gets more fame
23 X-Factor gets axed
24 More genres of music get played on the radio besides Pop, Rap, and Country

Where I live the only thing that's played on the radio is country and pop, and it's really annoying. It would be nice if other genres would be played on the radio. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Rock and Metal are on most of the time, what are you talking about? Rap is only on one station and that's 100.7 - FerrariDude64

Please, can you spare us one track we haven't heard a million times already? - PositronWildhawk

25 Taylor Swift retires

That would be pretty good! - Fan_of_Good_Music

This would be awesome.

No she cannot retires. - BeaM456

Or... she goes back to country.

26 Original Guns N' Roses returns

This would be amazing! - Alpha101

Oh yeah please. Imagine?!

Then tell Axl Rose to stop being a douchebag!

27 Taylor swift would write Miley Cyrus's songs

At least Taylor has better lyrics than Miley

28 Iggy Azalea Retires

If she's still relevant in 2021, SHE NEEDS TO RETIRE

29 Rebecca Black Gets A New Career Rebecca Black Gets A New Career Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

Can't you forgive her for making Friday? Her other songs are now decent enough!

Start a new life.. - FerrariDude64

Can't we all just put Friday in the past for Pete's sake? - WonkeyDude98

Put Friday in the past, she's gotten better at singing. And lastly, she's 18 now and she has her own YT channel. - Swellow

30 Rock will return as the dominant genre of music

I hope a band will do that in the long term and not short term like Linkin Park.

Right now I think it's rock and pop - FerrariDude64

31 Public Enemy makes It Still Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
32 Your Favorite Martian Returns

No. No, no, NO. No more Ray William Johnson please!

33 Chris Brown retires
34 Michael Jackson comes back to life

That won't happen in this world.I don't care if you want to thumbs down about this comment. - BeaM456

35 Bruce Springsteen stops making music

That would suck hard.

Please. For the sake of humanity, please let this happen! - RiverClanRocks

36 The re-emergence of thrash metal

Death Angel will pioneer that.

37 A new band arises with a unique style of music that prompts a new era
38 Eminem & Tech N9ne do a song together

They already have

Speedom. One of the best songs of both men involved. - WonkeyDude98

39 Justin Bieber retires

He needs to retire and DIE!

Well, not die. Just forgotten.

40 Nicki Minaj and her fans go away

I would be so happy.

41 Nicki Minaj has more dignity

She never had any dignity in the first place.

42 Marilyn Manson returns with a new album
43 Heavy Metal becomes mainstream again
44 More foreign artists get played on the radio
45 AC/DC Comes Out With a New Album
46 Led Zepplin Returns With a New Album
47 Justin Bieber Joins the 27 Club

That really won't work out; Jim Morrison will kick Bieber's butt if he tries to come in.

48 People Wear Actual Clothes In Music Videos
49 Rock and Metal become the dominant music on the radio!

Just not Nickelback or some other crap

Please don't tell me that One Direction is a rock band.

50 Black Sabbath becomes more popular than One Direction

I once shadowed a school and one of the first things I was asked when I got there was if I liked one direction. It's sad that horrible bands like one direction are more popular than amazing bands like Black Sabbath. - Imreallyboredrightnow

If I ask someone if they know who Black Sabbath, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Queen, Beatles, etc. is, they say no. Then I ask them who their favorite artist is. They say that they like One Direction, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, etc. It's too much to handle... - Alpha101

Actually, I would like Halestorm and Linkin Park to become more popular than 1D.
