Top Ten False Stereotypes About Music Genres


The Top Ten

1 Classical Music Is Boring V 1 Comment
2 Metal Isn't Music

If pop can be called music, without any actual effort put into it, than the talented people who play metal deserve to have their masterpieces called music.

3 Rap Is All About Weed, Money, And Hoes

This is pretty accurate mate, what's wrong with you?! - AGK

Dance With The Devil by Immortal Technique.

It's worth listening to, I promise. - SwagFlicks

No. It's actually about money, hoes and weed.

4 All Metal Is Satanic

Nope. Only bands like Gorgoroth, Deicide, and Marduk are. (Which I'm not dissing and are really good bands in their own right.) - Brobusky

Metal is just a type of music playing which is very heavy and hard.there's nothing got to do with it unless people like ozzy osbourne and Marilyn Manson came in metal.there are a lot of good metal bands - zxm

5 Rock Is All Rebellious
6 Rock/Metal Is Talentless V 1 Comment
7 Pop Music Is Autotuned V 2 Comments
8 Pop Music Is For Sheep

I thought you meant the animal, but now I get it, a person who fits in and basically acts like a mindless clone.

I'm only saying that not all pop is for sheep. The only pop music that sucks and is for mindless sheep fangirls with little to no musical knowledge is most of today's mainstream. - nickolie

9 Country Music Is Depressing

Ah, come on... A lot of it is. Suicide, marriage breakups, illness, orphans... - Britgirl

10 All Pop Music is Bad

The Contenders

11 Rap Is Just Talking

Paid plenty of attention to Pink Floyd for decades. There is much to like and some to love. The fact remains, however, that the theme of much of what they produced was depression; a profound sadness about life unfulfilled.

Okay. Screwed up. Clearly this belongs with item 9.

12 Ska is for racists
13 Pop Songs Are All About Love V 1 Comment
14 Rap Doesn't Require Talent
15 Dubstep Is Just Noise

"All music is a form of noise." No. That's a silly platitude. Music is not "noise." It's a blending of SOUNDS. Noise is unstructured, chaotic, grating, offensive to the senses, and does NOT elicit the emotion, the spiritual response, that music does.

There is some really good dubstep out there, beyond the mainstream, beyond Skrillex. Melodic dubstep is full of emotion and meaning. Like any other genre, you have to look deeper.

All music is a form of noise. Dubstep is just really bad noise. - Brobusky
