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

Lol nobody on this list likes pop

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

Metal songs have real instruments and real vocals, so yes, it is music. - 3DG20

One of the dumbest lists I've ever seen! - Userguy44

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

Oh well, at least metal singers aren't talking about sex constantly. - WheresMyGuitarPick

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

You a stupid hoe, you a you a stupid hoe. So classy. - WheresMyGuitarPick

5 It's not easy to understand metal songs

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? - 3DG20

6 Only idiots like metal

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? - WheresMyGuitarPick

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

People listened too much Black Metal. - Userguy44

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 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. - 3DG20

9 Pop fans don't make pop music worse, metal fans make metal music worse

It's only because it's hard to make pop music worse than it already is - Metal_Treasure

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

Yeah sure... - Userguy44

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

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

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.

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? - WheresMyGuitarPick

13 Metal lyrics are usually cheesy

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

Cannibal Corpse: I feel like killing you...let loose the anger...held back to blood runs cold...
Which one's more cheesy? - WheresMyGuitarPick

14 Rap lyrics are very creative

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.
