Top Ten False Stereotypes About Music Genresnickolie
The Top Ten
Music tastes are subjective but if I had to listen to Classical music the whole day every day it would be very boring.
I'm not a fan of classical music, but I wouldn't call it boring. It's just music and it's still better than modern pop and rap in my opinion. - Userguy44
Well most of classical music is great, but I do find a select few that are just generally boring. - Kwaysar
You mean for relaxing, calming music, mindfulness. No its not boring.V 2 Comments
My god this stereotype is annoying. What, you people think that I sacrifice animals in the night just cause I listen to Iron Maiden? When will people realize that research is a man's best friend?
Nope. Only bands like Gorgoroth, Deicide, and Marduk are. (Which I'm not dissing and are really good bands in their own right.) - Brobusky
Jesus Christ, just because one or two metal bands are Satanic doesn't mean all the other ones are Satanic. Get yo facts right! - CharismaticKat
No just a lot of death metal, all black metal, and a little bit of thrash metal.
I think everything else is non satanic. - Skullkid755
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.
Why? I mean it's played with real instruments and not all metal is satanic and screaming. - Userguy44

Basically, the only rap music I constantly hear on the radio and from peers is about controversial topics. And there are some songs of this genre that despite profanity, don't have bad meanings. And there are some that are just clean in every aspect, even hidden meanings. - Kwaysar
This is pretty accurate mate, what's wrong with you?! - AGK
Unfortunately a lot of it is. - CharismaticKat
Well for some it’s true, but not all of them like NF.V 3 Comments
Who the hell would make up this dumb stereotype? Whoever did probably listens to mainstream pop and rap, which are the actual talentless genres.
Who ever invented this stereotype is literally deaf and stupid. How is playing a guitar talentless? Some people sing and play complex riff at the same time lol. Rock and metal are the best genres and by far the most talented people are here.
This pisses me off. I know it's an opinion by some people and I respect opinions, but this is entirely wrong! - Userguy44
true!V 1 Comment
Uh in which way? - Userguy44
Pop haters sorry but you can get an Pop music sketching and colouring book and no I have not confused it with pop art that would be you.
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
I don't like pop music, but I don't think it's stupid to listen to it. It's just music. - CharismaticKat
I didn't know that sheeps like pop music 🐑 - Userguy44V 3 Comments
Not everything but a lot of it actually is. - Userguy44
most of it
Umm... IT IS!
Oh, so now it's not?
Most mainstream can be. However, underground and most old pop sounds good - nickolie
BG: Sure you're not thinking about Pink Floyd?
Pink Floyd made creative album covers and unique songs. The lyrics sounded poetic, meaningful, and precise. Once you pay attention to the melodies, lyrics, guitar riffs and solos, baselines, and drums, you can understand that their music is actually pretty enjoyable to listen to. Sadly, most people don't care about that. - nickolie
I heard some decent pop songs though, but mostly nowadays is crap! - Userguy44
I'm a metalhead but I'm a little bit of a popper too. - Skullkid755
About 90% of pop music sucks. Come at me haters -_- - CharismaticKat
I agree. - Userguy44
"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
Only close-minded idiots would think that lol (sorry)V 1 Comment
A lot of pop songs nowadays are. Why can't write about something else? It's getting old and annoying. Only about love 😑 - Userguy44
DO U LISTEN TO POP MUSIC NOWADAYS? Not to be rude but most of it is.
I don't listen to pop music although I have respect for underground and several of old stuff such as Michael Jackson or Prince. - nickolie
How is a song about the final thoughts of Jesus (Melancholy by Iced Earth) happy?
Emo was a breakthrough in music, not some stupid self-harmin act
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.
No, because talking generally makes some degree of sense.
Most old school rappers and all underground rappers can write meaningful lyrics about childhood memories, religion, politics, and other interesting topics. They can express their feelings well and a lot of them can freestyle too. - nickolie
Not entirely true and this is coming from a person who doesn't like rap. - Userguy44
Well my Grandma hates Rap so whatever.
