Top 10 Reasons Why Metal isn't the Best Music GenreNickelbackLinkinPark4Eva Heavy metal is, as of now, the #1 item in the "Best Music Genres" list, but really? Is it really the best music genre? No, it's not. And here are the reasons why.
The Top Ten
Depends on your preference. - Misfire
Personal preferences are completely subjective. Some prefer Pop, some like Rock or Rap music, others will say they favor Metal most. Others might take Classical and Jazz music over instead. - CrimsonShark
Although the list idea is relevant and everyone can decide whether he agrees with it, this list could have been done much better, most likely it's just for trolling the metalhead-dominated community. "there are better music genres" just means the same as "metal isn't the best music genre". It's like saying 2+2=5 because 2+2 isn't 6. - Alkadikce
I personally prefer rock, but I will respect you if you like metal as long as you’ll return that respect. - 3DG202 Comments
Well so is Pop, Rap, and Country. Your point?
So are pop, rock and rap, but that doesn’t necessarily make them bad. It just means they get a lot of praise. - 3DG20
This whole list isn’t fact, it’s just your opinion. - PumpkinKing109
Heavy Metal has become more mainstream than it was in the 90s and 00s. And even then, its not on the same magnitude of popularity as Pop music.
If anything is not mainstream, there's a lot more than just Metal if you ask me. - CrimsonShark
*COUGHS* Pop and Rap are way more mainstream.
No it's not. Pop music is too mainstream. - Userguy44
Pop, rap, rock and even country are way more mainsteam though. - 3DG20
The guitar is my favourite thing about metal, but I respect your opinion. - 3DG20
I find guitars to be awesome in any genre, especially Metal...
Why did you came up with this? You don't like riffs and solos? - Userguy44
Do you mean the screams? Metal vocalists are actually talented! - Userguy44
Still better than all emo band vocals.
There are annoying vocalists in every other genre though. You just can’t let them overshadow the good ones because there are also great vocalists in every genre. - 3DG20
So what? It takes a lot of talent. - Userguy44
Not a valid reason.
That’s a good thing about metal. That means it takes a lot of talent. - 3DG20
Invalid reason. - Misfire
Explain to me how a genre based on Classical music, with many different sub genres, and diverse riffs is outdated?
Pop is outdated because no one will remember today's pop songs in 30 years
Rock is outdated because most of today's rock bands mix rock with other genres and it doesn't exist in its purest form anymore
Jazz is outdated because it was at its best in the 1930s
Classical is outdated because the oldest pieces of music people still listen to are classical compositions
Rap is outdated because it isn't REAL rap anymore, just mumbling about gangster life
Country is outdated because only old people listen to it
Metal is outdated because the greatest bands were formed in the 1980s and how this list says, "it isn't on charts anymore"
We can find reasons for every genre why it is outdated, but is it worth doing it? (I know this is a troll list, but non-trolls also use these arguments sometimes) - Alkadikce
So? Rock songs barely make the charts anymore either but I still love it. - 3DG20
Then don't go to the concerts. - Userguy44
Someone has listened too much Death Metal...
DEPENDS on the Metal band you listen to.
What a stupid reason - Userguy44
