Top Ten Reasons Why Modern Pop is Better Than Metal
The Top Ten
I just came here to contemplate the potential of human stupidity. I am not really a metal head (more of a prog rock fan) but I do love a few metal bands. This list was probably made by some butt hurt teenage girl or a troll. Still, to even dare to think that there's anything in Pop that is better than metal is plain stupid. Well, since I happen to have some free time at the moment, I will answer the maker of this list :
1- "Metal songs can give someone a heart attack" : Until you find proof that this has happened before, and you won't, this argument is invalid. Next.
2- "Modern pop singers are classy" : Yep, Lady Gaga wearing a meat dress, Justin Bieber spitting at his fans, Nikki Minaj referring to dicks through her song "Anaconda", Chris Brown beating his girlfriends. Yeah, that's the definition of class.
3- "Metal songs isn't music" : First, you need to go through your grade 1 grammar books and learn some proper grammar. ...more
Dumbest list I've ever seen.
So can any other genre. - Caleb9000
Lol nobody on this list likes popV 5 Comments
What makes you think that Melancholy by Iced Earth isn't music but Stupid Hoe by Nicki Minaj is? - Metal_Treasure
If something is organized with a consistent and organized beat and melody (no matter how jagged), it is music. Look up the definition of music. - Caleb9000
Metal songs have real instruments and real vocals, so yes, it is music. - 3DG20
One of the dumbest lists I've ever seen! - Userguy44V 6 Comments
Metal isn't only about screaming - zxm
Oh, yes they do. Only unlike people who train their screaming they do it in the wrong way lol by trying to belt and failing. Also, tons of metal bands have singers who don't scream
THIS IS WHY IT's BAD! Why can't it have screaming and blood like metal does. - DarkBoi-X
Oh well, at least metal singers aren't talking about sex constantly. - WheresMyGuitarPickV 4 Comments
Oh really. So Justin Bieber spitting on his fans from a balcony and Miley Cyrus singing about partying and sex are considered classy? Man you're delusional.
Of course they are. They use auto-tune to make up for the fact that they are tone-deaf and they don't write their own songs. They're puppets of the record industry. - Caleb9000
This is one of the most untrue items I've ever seen on here. - allamassal
You a stupid hoe, you a you a stupid hoe. So classy. - WheresMyGuitarPickV 1 Comment
True. Metal wasn't meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Pop was. Metal music is more complex. To understand metal music, the listener has to put more effort, has to be more focused and patient. But this actually proves metal is better. - Metal_Treasure
Music is meant to challenge you. During the classical days this was accepted. - Caleb9000
True, when you first listen to Babykiller by Devourment you can hardly understand a word. But I can't understand a word of most Lil Wayne songs. - WheresMyGuitarPick
So? - 3DG20V 1 Comment
Also, I've met countless pop fans who don't really know anything of global relevance. - Caleb9000
And this is coming from an idiot? - 906389
Like I said before, whoever made this list is an idiot.
What about Metal_Treasure? - WheresMyGuitarPickV 6 Comments
I'm not even gonna bother feeding this pathetic troll.
Music can't be satanic. Only lyrics can. And pop/rap lyrics about sex, money and drugs are actually satanic because these things are temptations according to Christian traditions. - Metal_Treasure
Don't even get me started on why this is wrong. - 906389
People listened too much Black Metal. - Userguy44V 4 Comments
Guess what? I'm not deaf! Surprise? I think not. - 906389
Use the volume control. I listen to metal but I am not deaf. Moreover, I can still hear that many pop/rap/hip hop singers sing out-of-tune. I bet you don't hear it. Not me, YOU are deaf. - Metal_Treasure
I don't hate pop but lets put this thing like this Bruce Dickinson has been a pilot.and if metal would make someone deaf then he would be deaf and will someone take a deaf pilot? - zxm
Really? Because I don’t know a single person who got deaf from listening to metal. - 3DG20V 1 Comment
It's only because it's hard to make pop music worse than it already is - Metal_Treasure
LOL, this list is a clear manifestation of music ignorance. Total eclipse. - Metal_Treasure
Yeah cause it takes zero talent to operate a loud pulse pounding guitar solo for an entire minute and explode on the drums for 5 minutes, yep, makes a ton of sense - EpicHorrorMaster
Compare someone like Cher or Katy Perry to John Arch or Midnight (they don't scream if that's what you are looking for). It's a no-brainer. - Caleb9000
Yeah sure... - Userguy44V 4 Comments
Yeah, so do your Pop/Rap artists who sing about Drugs in every song. I hope this list is fake. - Metalfan2112
Yeah, right. That's why Metallica made the best anti-drug song ever: Master Of Puppets there is.
Who the hell adds so dumb and ignorant items? - Metal_Treasure
People misunderstood MoP. - Userguy44
So do pop stars like Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne. What’s your point? - 3DG20
This is a false item - Metallica didn't say that. They said drugs are bad in their anti-drug song Master Of Puppets. - Metal_Treasure
This is the only valid point in this entire list honestly.
This is really all I have as music wise metal generally out classes pop.
No. While both fanbases can be elitist, I think pop fans showcase a higher degree of ignorance and as a result - they are more elitist. Almost every metal fan knows many pop songs but pop fans usually don't know many metal songs and rely on stereotypes. The current list a great example of it - that's why it's so cringy. This list was made by a pop elitist. - Metal_Treasure
And you make this list? - WheresMyGuitarPickV 1 Comment
No, actually it's the other way around. - DericWilsonMahil
True - lovestarlist
That’s funny, seeing that metal artists talk about world issues while most pop artists I hear on the radio nowadays are always gushing about their boyfriend/girlfriend. - 3DG20
Beaver: BABY, BABY, BABY, OOOH! LIKE BABY, BABY, BABY, OOOH! LIKE BABY, BABY, BABY, OOOH!
Cannibal Corpse: I feel like killing you...let loose the anger...held back to long...my blood runs cold...
Which one's more cheesy? - WheresMyGuitarPick
We are talking about pop not rap! - Userguy44
In general, talking about sex drugs and wealth are most definitely creative, rather thsn having songs with two different hidden meanings. Enter Metallica.
