Top 10 Music Genres Where People are Most Selective with the Artists They LikeCrimsonShark As much as anyone loves music, there's bound to be an area where you're going to like some and hate the rest. Like you love a certain band from a specific genre, but then hate another that plays the same genre. While I do respect most genres, I can't help but hate or dislike some bands, regardless.
Which genre do you think you like a lot of artists, but also hate some in the same genre or sub-genre?
The Top Ten
Death metal is awesome.
I do acknowledge this sub-genre in a lot of ways, such as the instrumental precision and vocal work (As unappealing as it can get, at least for me). And I do respect some artists, such as Death, Opeth, Amon Amarth, Soilwork and ESPECIALLY Chuck Schuldiner. That doesn't change the fact that Death Metal does have its artists that are easy to dislike, such as Cannibal Corpse.
Not a fan, but I don't hate it either. I just find myself getting into the genre difficult :/. I do want to like it though... - CrimsonShark
Overhated on this site. I'm personally a fan, but I do know there's a lot of terrible artists.
But it doesn't exclude the fact there's there's a lot of great musicians like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and some recent ones like Bruno Mars and Lorde. So is it bad? Definitely not, but Pop does have its negatives. - CrimsonShark
Another one that gets too much hate. Sure there's Chris Brown, Pitbull and Lil' Bitch, but remember, Rap also has Rakim, Eminem and N.W.A.
I'm not really into rap, but I'll give it a go if what's given is good :). - CrimsonShark
Gets unfairly hated to the point where it's not even considered a Metal subgenre (Which is BS). Sure Bullet for My Valentine doesn't suit your expectations, but it doesn't mean it's bad. They're not the best, but I still like them to this day. Not all Metalcore is going to be appealing, but bands like Trivium and Killswitch Engage gives it a chance. - CrimsonShark
Look, metalcore is mostly punk - it's a punk-based genre influenced by metal and some other genres. This is the reason it isn't considered metal. I wouldn't say this is BS.
Saying that "metalcore isn't metal" means only this - that music doesn't have enough metal elements to be called metal. This is based on careful professional analyses of the music elements of metalcore - as you see it's an objective statement and not a biased opinion because it doesn't discuss whether metalcore is good or bad. - Metal_Treasure
Go ahead and hate Limp Bizkit, but with bands like Korn, Linkin Park (Hybrid Theory, Meteora and The Hunting Party) and Slipknot (Not all of their catalog though), Nu Metal isn't actually all that bad. I'm sure the three I've mentioned will be considered Rock/Metal legends in the next decade or two. - CrimsonShark
True, this is because, as I've said before, Nu-Metal is very undefined. Things such as KoRn and A Day To Remember are very different, and have very different elements. A Day To Remember has a punk vibe to it, while KoRn has aggressive vocals and a heavier vibe. - EliHbk
Yes, true. Nu-Metal is a sort of outcast genre with the artists that don't fit in "Metalcore" or things like that. That makes this genre larger than most sub-genres, in terms of large artists at least. With a broader and bigger selection, this is pretty obvious. - EliHbk
Rise Against is the only big one I know. - EliHbk
