Reasons to Hate Today's Mainstream Music

Note that list is only about today's mainstream music, not today's underground music.

The Top Ten

1 It's unoriginal

I'm actually getting tired of seeing these kinds of list. Can we accept all kinds of music now, even though it's crappy? - JaysTop10List

There's lots of experimental music from underground artists, so it's illogical to judge music only by mainstream radio.

That's like complaining that your dating life sucks but you don't go anywhere except bars to meet people - marmalade_skies

Look at the title and description. This list is only about mainstream music. - drdevil

For example, many EDM songs (not all of them) have nothing unique about them. :(

EDIT: I regret making this list. If I could delete it, I definitely would. - drdevil

I wouldn't. Most of these reasons are valid - we seriously need to raise the bar when it comes to mainstream music. - Entranced98

2 It's overrated

Well, overrated doesn't mean bad.

Not really. It's become quite popular to bash current music. - marmalade_skies

3 The songs are plagued with bad lyrics
4 Many of the songs use Auto-Tune
5 Bland melodies
6 Poor mastering
7 Annoying choruses that make you want to scream
8 Melodies are often stolen from classics

And unfortunately, many teens are unaware of this. - drdevil

This happened during other eras too. - marmalade_skies

9 Encourages kids to talk about dirty acts

The argument that music used to be morally pure is crazy.

60's and 70's bands pioneered the culture of drugs and promiscuity, yet people don't mind that. - marmalade_skies

10 It's boring

The Contenders

11 It lacks clarity
12 It's extremely annoying
13 Too many sexual themes
