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

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?

If Iron Maiden is classed as metal,Metal is music! - Lord28

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

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.

Ever heard of BOTDF anyone? - Caleb9000

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

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

Listens to metal iq is 184 expected to be lawyer, surgeon by many I must be dumb!

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 pretty sure the evil music is Pop music - Metalfan2112

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

It's actually both. - NikBrusk

10 Metallica said that drugs are cool

What about Lil Wayne - Yungstirjoey

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

The Contenders

11 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

This item of the list is fkng dumbass. - waraypiso

12 Metal fans are more elitist

This is really all I have as music wise metal generally out classes pop.

This is the only valid point in this entire list honestly.

13 Metal lyrics are usually cheesy

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

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
