Top Ten Ludicrous Theories as to Why Awful Music is PopularThe most sane of us are displeased by the music on the modern mainstream scene, and we're always looking for an explanation for its unnecessary attention. Here are some ridiculous conspiracy theories that may answer your questions. Or...maybe not...
For all we know, Anaconda could be making them question humanity. But still, it does that enough. - PositronWildhawk
Ha-ha, let's start playing some rock/metal! I want to hear alien music... that will really be something.
Yes indeed! The safest and quickest way to stop an alien invasion. Everyone should blast out mindless pop all at the same time for the good of planet Earth. We must not delay! Do it now! Justin Bieber, it's now time to earn your money...! - Britgirl
This music is already very alien to me. But actual alien music might be interesting. - PositronWildhawk
It's either this stuff or we'd have to break out Slim Whitman's yodeling - see Tim Burton's Mars Attacks! - Billyv
I think this may explain some of the more explicit music videos. - PositronWildhawk
The intellectually inferior beings don't understand the prominence of alternative music. - Merilille
Is there any sign of an unknown mental condition evident from the Anaconda music video? That's a rhetorical question. - PositronWildhawk
I'm a 5 percenter. - FrozenHatingPokefan
To be fair this one almost certainly has some truth to it. Some artists like Lil Wayne get a ridiculous number of songs charting by just emphasising quantity over quality yet many people still buy his music.
In the 1960s when The Beatles started there was loads of fans but other people would've thought they where totally rubbish, the internet wasn't around to slag off fans of anyone famous or the famous people.
Drivel-like pop has always existed, even when the Beatles and Hendrix were on the charts, there was plenty of crapola like the Ohio Express singing "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy". However, the very next song could have been by Marvin Gaye, so it balanced out. The difference is that now, John, George, Jimi, and Marvin are all dead, and there is simply nobody to take their place.
So in that case, the media could potentially have had a mix of good and bad. But no... - PositronWildhawk
Really? Lolololo. That is true - JaysTop10List
Given what good metal bands make songs about, compared to the lyrics of typical pop music, maybe this theory had some truth to it... - romanempire249
