Top Ten Reasons Why Modern Pop is Better Than Metal

The Top Ten

1 Metal songs can give someone a heart attack

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

Oh really? How can you say that unless you have any proof? Morden pop had become so much worse in decades. Classic pop was so much better. I even still listen to bands like the beatles and CCR. Nowadays in pop, there is so much autotune while in metal, there is no auto tune. Every metal song is played by instruments and not by some stupid dj. Whenever you listen to a new pop song, you're like 'it's so awesome' but when you hear it again and again, you get bored whereas metal songs don't ever make you feel bored. Metal songs gives so much energy (headbanging). Pop dances are so silly they make you feel like a baby but when you headbang to a metal song you feel so energetic. Just try to headbang to at least one or two metal songs and you'll know

2 Metal songs aren't music

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

Really, but computerized instruments and auto tuned singing is?

I agree.These metal fans say computerized affects and autotune aren't music yet they consider making aimal noises music.I LOVE AUTOTUNE! - DarkBoi-X

3 Pop signers don't scream when they are singing

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

I'd like to see JB or any other pop singer to scream and release emotions like late Mitch Lucker or Jonathan Davis or Corey Tailor or Ivan Moody.

4 Modern pop singers are classy

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

5 It's not easy to understand metal songs

Music is meant to challenge you. During the classical days this was accepted. - Caleb9000

Complicated things are sometimes better though,movies like The Godfather,Memento,Inception,Donnie Darko aren't easy to understand.are these bad.though its not a reason but I think more complicated=more unique - zxm

6 Only idiots like metal

Also, I've met countless pop fans who don't really know anything of global relevance. - Caleb9000

Like I said before, whoever made this list is an idiot.

And this is coming from an idiot? - 906389

I hate to break the truth but I read a book that classical music makes you smarter and heavy metal makes you dumber I read that in a book - lovestarlist

7 Metal music is satanic

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

I'm a fan of pop but metal is not satanic no music genre is satanic. There is no evidence that the devil exists, ever heard of the Pagan God called Pan?

8 Metal songs can make someone deaf

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 am not deaf to listen metal. - waraypiso

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

9 Pop fans don't make pop music worse, metal fans make metal music worse
10 Modern pop signers are more talented than metal singers

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

Yep, basically you are saying that someone who practice instrument and studied musci for years is less tanlented than a person whodoesn't know how to read music and can't even sing without that autotune

The Contenders

11 Metallica said that drugs are cool

Yeah, so do your Pop/Rap artists who sing about Drugs in every song. I hope this list is fake. - Metalfan2112

What about Lil Wayne - Yungstirjoey

12 Metal fans are more elitist

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.

13 Metal lyrics are usually cheesy

No, actually it's the other way around. - DericWilsonMahil

True - lovestarlist

Singing about depression singing about your ill wife singing about suicide singing about REAL ISSUES how cheesy singing about being a slut who complains about old boyfriends how original and not cheesy dumb teenage girl who’s boyfriend dumped her and he liked metal

14 Rap lyrics are very creative
