Top 10 Worst Things About Pop Music

Pop used to be great back then. Back when true pop artists like The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and The Monkees were making music of their own and had actual meaning to it.

Nowadays all you hear from most pop songs on the radio is sex, partying, drug use, butts, getting drunk, getting high on weed, and just the dumbest shit in the world. And most artists get famous because of their looks. Not because of their image.
What happened to being real? What happened to having morals and values?

This is the list you've all been waiting for. Here are the top 10 worst things about pop music (mostly modern pop music).
The Top Ten
1 Constant Talk about Partying, Sex, Drug Use, Weed, Butts, and Alcohol

This perfectly describes most songs in 2017 you hear on the radio such as I'm the One, Strip That Down, Anaconda, etc.

I feel like they are, like, 10 artists who don't use partying, sex, drugs, "asses" and alcohol in their songs.

I love pop music but this reason is the only thing I agree with!

Mo Bounce is one of the worst songs I have ever heard!

2 Auto-Tune

Actually for 99% of the music industry auto-tune is used to cut studio times in half. Not because the singer can't sing, just to shorten time.

I like it if it's used in an interesting way. If you consistantly sing just a half step off key, it makes you sound like a glitchy robot. Which is useful if you're Daft Punk or something.

Scream singing takes practice. Auto-tune doesn't

If Justin Bieber sang without autotune, he actually has a decent voice

3 Artists Becoming Popular Based On Image, Not Talent

I love 1d but without the looks they would not be as famous as they are now.

4 Is Played Everywhere

There is no chance of preventing ot reaching your eardrums. On the radio, at a football match, at McDonalds,... this #&_@ is played.

5 Can Influence Bad Behavior
6 Boring

2018 music is basically the same mumble rap beat or K-Pop lyrics put on infinite loop. Boring.

You just hear the words over and over again. Simple beat.

7 Too Simple

Most pop songs today have chord progressions that sound like they've been done 3723952 times before, as well as themes that are very generic (usually about love and romance).

8 Sex Songs to Get More People to Buy a Terrible Artist's Albums

The audience of these albums are usually perverts.

9 Fangirls
10 Horrible Beats

Just simple. No bass drops or anything.

The Contenders
11 It's Overrated
12 Cussing

The are plenty of metal songs that have cussing too.

Cussing doesn't always suck.

13 Most Artists have Ghostwriters writing their Songs for Them

They don't give songwriters enough credit!

14 The Use of Stuttering and Phrases Used Repeatedly During Extremely Basic Choruses
15 Uncreative

They all use the same chord progressions and beats. The lyrics are just one word over and over again or something boring. They usually use the same 4 instruments, none of which are good. The singer doesn't even write the music, because they are uncreative.

16 Majority of Pop Songs are About Love

This should be first. Ever Pop singers of today is whining about love in almost every song of them. Love this, love that. Why can't they write about something else?

What bothers pop singers so much about love?

17 Terrible Lyrics

Listen to mainstream pop. Literally every song they write today is about love. Is the whole mainstream pop scene meant to be for love?

Not Halsey's songs though, which is part of why I like her.

18 Never a Song About Anything Important

The lyrical content unanimously among pop songs always consists of stupid and meaningless problems. I remember a time when songs were written about really crucial and REAL issues. 99% of pop music revovles around a rudimentary, high school agenda, almost always about puppy love and childish relationships.

Yeah, like love is so important.

19 Idiots Talking Crap About It.
20 More Popular than Other Genres

If people want to make this crap then I don't care but when people choose to listen to unoriginal pop by bands who've never written a song and have the arrogance to judge your music taste? That's what I can't stand

21 It Talks About Boys and Girls

Screw the boy bands.

22 Only Appeals to Girls

It does make a little sense that this was marketed to girls, but there are some boys that like it too. And I'm a girl but I hate pop music

23 The Artists Do Not Play Instruments

The laptop/PC/Mac has been a blessing and a curse to the music industry. The blessing is it allows an artist with real talent and musicianship to work faster. The curse is it has allowed artists with virtually no talent to program music via software. And now all the new pop music sounds the same. Especially Rap/Hip Hop which was better when producers used samples.

True but Katy Perry can actually (or at least, could actually) play the acoustic guitar. Look up Kate Hudson!

They do sometimes though and it isn't always bad.

Because they don't learn how to.

24 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

He isn't even the worst pop artist.

I saw that coming TBH. Also, he's not even the worst, it's just children who think hating on him is cool

25 The Lyrics are Repetitive
