Top 10 Reasons Why Pop Music Is Awful

I get a Headache every time hear pop music for over 10 minutes. The Simple notes, the bad singing, the stupid lyrics. It just hurts my brain.
And here I wanna list the top reasons why I think its awful
I mostly listen Punkrock, hardrock and metal, and with metal I mean everything in this huge genre what is good, from Melodic metal to trash and progressive metal to metalcore and numetal.
The Top Ten
1 "Singers" need AutoTune

Back in the 80s and 90s, pop singers could actually sing and never used autotune. New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys are incredibly cheesy but at least they could actually sing and sang naturally with their real voices. Modern top 40 pop stars are addicted to autotune. Don't get me wrong, autotune can be used in an artistic way like 2000s Lady Gaga and Daft Punk, but top 40 pop singers who can't sing use it to trick people into making them think they can sing. There are even singers who don't need autotune and just use it anyways.

Crappy singers everywhere, from Chris Brown to Taylor Swift. Flops, show-offs, nothing more than to feed their ego and falsely show off their technical vocal "skills", and worse, do it all under the name of capitalism at its greediest: music companies that demand lots of $$$, as more crap, stale, lame, bland, generic, and repetitive music videos are released, further pushing the music industry's greedy and selfish agenda, forcing them to demand more generic auto-tuned "singers", and then feeding the "singers" ego and pockets, but also subliminally draining out their self-esteem and values. The deadly cycle goes on and on, and auto tune is definitely one of the biggest factors to that modern-day music industry cycle.

One time I cheated on a biology test and got caught. I definitely felt ashamed but I learned from that mistake that it was better just to naturally get a D than to unnaturally get an A. Thus I can relate this story to autotune. Singers who rely on it are technically cheating just to trick us into thinking they can actually sing. It is obvious people back then could really sing because the lack of technology made singers work harder. Of course, there are singers I can recommend like Adele, Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, Amy Winehouse (r.I.p), John Legend, and yes Taylor Swift. But it is rare to find many of them nowadays.

Ed Sheeran is the only good pop singer I have come across so far.

If your gonna sing, at least try! If your so afraid of messing up that you need to use a computer to make everything perfect, perhaps you shouldn't even be singing or making "music" in the first place!

2 No instruments are played

I would like to elaborate that it's not necessarily that there aren't any instruments being played, it's that there is no longer any creativity, or any attempt at making anything other than overly simplistic, market-driven formula drivel. A computer can be an instrument too, it's all in how you use it. Unfortunately, especially varied or creative instrumentals in music doesn't really sell to the lowest common denominator, resulting in the constant generic spiel emanating from your typical Top 40 radio station.

Agreed. An instrument is a tool. A synthesizer is also a tool. It al depends on how you use it.

Pop songs mostly have no instruments played at all. A single boring beat, and the same 5 same computerized notes played over and over. There is simply no soul left in today's music, and anyone who hasn't lost their taste in culture or enlightenment can agree with my claim, while brainwashed sheep follow and listen to whatever they're told because they can't comprehend that the computerized garbage they relish in consists of no instrumental soul, emotional movement, or varying sound.

Drum Machine, and vocals. I understand that over half of pop songs use samples from other instruments, but real drum just sound better (just my opinion).

If you play an instrument, even if you're a very average player, you still have your own sound. Pros elaborate on that further and further, and if they throw in some improvisation, they pretty much create new music every time they play a song. Computer just repeats the same patterns over and over again, which simply strips music of its humanity. And nope, its'n not complaining about a book not being handwritten. It's more like comparing a drawing by hand with a Corel Draw template collage.

3 Almost always about love

Me and my sister even 'count' all the love songs on digital radio in the car, and all of them are love songs, (we count with our fingers so we don't lose track) and I swear me and my sister need more fingers to count all these stupid songs.

Alternative singers such as Melanie Martinez and Billie Eilish actually WRITE their songs, use REAL instruments and don't fill their whole album with love songs. Melanie's album is a whole story! Sure, love songs are great, and their love songs are really good, but variety, hello? have they got nothing better to write about? I just asked some people to list off some shawn mendes songs and THEY WERE ALL LOVE SONGS.

Agreed. People are dying and the only thing pop stars care about is love. Humanity is devolving.

Oh my god, I could rant ALL DAY how love and sex are some of the only and my least favorite messages from pop music, especially from mainstream pop music. Some of my favorite songs AREN'T about love, including Suburban Train (instrumental and my all-time favorite song), Master of Puppets, Fade to Black, most other metal songs that I like, etc. Just make more variety in pop music and maybe I'll like it better. By the way, most pop, rap, and some EDM from 2016 and beyond absolutely SUCK (there are a few exceptions). And these songs are ALL about love and sex. PLEASE MAKE MORE SONGS NOT ABOUT LOVE AND ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE, PLEEEASSE!

Songs like Willow Tree March, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Bohemian Rhapsody, Evelyn Evelyn and Wolf have nothing to do with love! They are all amazing, too. Not saying that love songs are bad-- El Tango De Roxanne, King and Sacred Heart are also of equal greatness. However, a little variety in the pop industry would be nice.

4 Songs are overplayed

There is a radio in a city named São paulo, in Brazil, that is called "Rock Radio", (Or in portuguese: Rádio Rock) and it's awesome. LONG LIVE 89.1 FM!

That's just radio music in general. The fact that people hate on songs based on how often they're played is just questioning my faith in intelligence.

Yeah it's probably because you're listening to a station that only plays rap or pop. Just change the radio station or somethih

Radio stations should play a wider variety of music. It's probably been like this for decades.

5 Stupid lyrics and messages

Don't get me wrong but I think this website takes rock too far. I mean it's okay to like it but you're just making every other good genre invisible. What about Jazz? You guys just shame pop because of its stupid songs even though certain songs are stupid and repetitive but really you going to diss long time classics like Janet Jackson over rock? Are you serious? I mean rock is good but you just make everything else invisible. You know that some of the crappy pop songs could have meanings and I don't mean messages like get a new boyfriend or get over your heartbreak but messages that really stand out but you just compare that to rock. It doesn't make any sense. Fine, thumb down my comment I don't care I'm making a point here. Attack me all you want, it's a shame and you just hate people that don't like rock. Seriously.

Jazz music sounds great, while pop music on the other hand is turning your brain into a useless rotting clump.

Some of the worst lyrics in my opinion :
- "I was busy think about boys, boys, boys"
Who tf cares if you were busy thinking about boys? It's like some stranger walk to you and suddenly say "Hey you know, I was busy thinking about boys! " What you would do? I guess you would keep walking, pretend you don't listen, walk away, listen but then angrily say "I don't care! " or "You're wasting my time! " or something similar

- "Till I find someone I love, kissing strangers"
The songwriter is 100% abnormal. Normal person will never kiss strangers. Can you imagine disgust reaction from strangers when you suddenly kiss them? I can guarantee they'll think you're a crazy person. I never tried this but I use my logical thinking.

I completely think this should have been number one music now days in America is trashy dirt, they are all saying the same stupid stuff for example: I went in the club last night, her big booty. And that's just rap the is just the same there talking about a girl/boy the like (for a girl) wearing a skimpy outfit ( for a guy ) there wearing some type of player outfit and it's getting annoying and to add on to that list there voices are terrible they either use way to much auto tune to the point where it's annoying or they sound like there a Disney kid, America needs to fix there music

You all know what I mean there... "I came in like a wracking ball"
Like your kidding me? And the messages which does stupid lyrics deliver... I didn't had that much party yet in my life but I already know that it isn't that much fun to "party all the night"
And none of the pop songs really is about the real problems in the world. Did you ever heard a pop song even just say the simple message "War is bad". No because they suck and they don't care for the real problems and nobody wanna hear about real problems... Sad world

If you like Beyonce, she actually the first artist to sing this song but was disapproved by herself and later was given to Miley.

6 No talent

All singers have talent. Maybe some like Jacob Sartorious (I dunno if I spelled his name right) don't, but others do, Ariana Grande can hit notes without autotune that are quite hard to hit, Taylor Swift is actually quite creative when writing her songs, and Adele has a beautiful voice. Most talent in pop is stuff you're born with. Talent in rock is stuff that takes time to learn. There are different types of talent. And there are more talents then just singing. Drawing, Dancing? Anyone forget those? You can't just go around saying folks have no talent.

This really annoys me, every singer has talent. People just enjoy pointing out mistakes. For instance I thought that Katy Perry was an untalented pop artist who couldn't play an instrument if you paid her. Then I suddenly found myself on YouTube bawling my eyes out at one of the most emotionally deep and vocally impressive performances I have ever seen. (Funny, huh? ) Anyways Justin Bieber has a much different problem, he doesn't quite have ENOUGH talent. There are plenty of boys that sound just like him and are hardly recognized. Not to mention all the trouble he has gotten into, but you still can't say he is untalented. And by the way, I think it's ridiculous how people constantly say that pop music isn't REALLY music and that it's all horrible. That's your opinion and you need to label it that way. For instance, I don't like Adele that much, this is how I should point this out, "I think Adele is a really good singer, but I personally don't like her music," and here is how many ...more

This is the greatest comment written in the history of the Internet. And finally, an Adele hater who IS NOT BIASED.

I don't say that pop music is all that bad, but it is way too overrated. The singers of this genre don't even need to make a song that sounds good and it becomes a hit instantly and gains hundreds of millions of views. Compare Justin Bieber to sum 41 or Green Day. While the last two pit their talent into their songs along with their music all Justin has to do is try to sound sexy and all his fans go crazy. People have their own preferences but it isn't coincidence that everyone likes only pop. To all the pop fans out there, give some time to listen to other genres like pop punk, alternative rock, soft rock, hard rock, post hardcore, etc.

Actually WonkeyDude98, it's very hard to write a pop song. why? because I can't write enough meaningless lyrics and repetitive chords to make a pop song. but I'm just a 13 year old girl and I've already written plenty of songs, but they're not POP songs, they're ALTERNATIVE songs, because that's much better and actually means something. pop songs are TOO easy to write, anyone can literally just date someone, break up, write about 'how they tore your soul apart' and then say that ten times over and then add the same chord and then get plastic surgery and release it, get famous and the end. alternative songwriters work so much harder and don't get enough credit.

7 You hear it everywhere you go

It really does suck that it’s all that most people listen to. The majority of Western folks just eat up everything the mainstream gives them and never bother to venture out, mostly because they want to fit in by only listening to the same 15 or so songs that are played over and over, in every public place thanks to the radio. Long story short, this is why I bring earbuds everywhere I go.

Okay I won't lie cause this is a huge problem for ALL modern music, NOT JUST POP. That's why people, including myself tend to listen to stuff we grew up with because it never plays anymore. I was born in 99 but I can't stand modern music because of the radio. I mean the 2000s could also annoying at someways but never has it become this painful. we've come a long way with technology in the past 16 years, so now it's even worse to hear the same old annoying song from a car, a phone,etc.

Today I heard crappy K-pop on the MTR! What the heck! I mean, it is just dancing, plastic surgery, looks, autotune (by singing softly and connecting the mic to autotune before connecting to the stereo) and brainwashing teenagers. The mainstream media praised them as "youthful and cute". What is that, music is music, not looks, plastic surgery, dancing, videos and all that bullcrap!

Its more so it's so bad because of the other reasons, however this is insult to our injured ears as we have no escape from the monstrosity. believe me this isn't the reason its bad but the reason so many are aware that it is bad, I would love it if some places would play Jazz, Rock, Ska, Industrial, or Dub-step, just make a variety

8 It's corporate

It's a legitimate way to make a lot of money, nothing wrong with that at all, it actually shows the ease of doing business in the region

It's completely processed. Made with a team of audio engineers to clip the sound and beat-correct the instruments. There's no musical talent, and no musical effort shown.

Those sound engineers make me feel ashamed to be one. (I have never used autotune.)

Most of them are either made by phony SoundCloud rappers or Scandinivian ghost writers (no racism intended). I am actually glad as an electronic teen because people write their own songs.

Most of the pop music nowadays is literally made by the same 2 people, and just made to sell.

9 Lack of creativity

Total lack of creativity indeed. Songs being made off of computer based software making someone famous who has no real talent to begin with. Even vocally, we have so called "singers" who are now nothing more than "noise makers" ( Adele, Rihanna, Adam Levine, and so many more)
Now there's nothing wrong with making music with computer based software. It makes the process faster and frees up time for someone with real instrumental talent, ie: Prince. But it also allows talentless "cockroaches" to infiltrate their way into genres that were once considered great like Rock, Hip Hop/Rap, R&B. Heavy Metal is basically forgotten now and that's sad.
To me, music creativity reached its peak in the 1970's, mainly between 1975-1979. Everyone brought their very best, their A game, their own style to the table and if you tried to copy or sound like someone else, like an established artist, then you simply couldn't compete. In a nutshell, today's mainstream music is irritating and has no ...more

The three singers you listed are horrible examples because they all can sing.

Just look back at music in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Each musician had their own style and each song was different. The melodies, the harmonies, and the layers of instruments and vocals all fit together like a giant puzzle and created something extraordinary and unique. Now in pop music, there is no more creativity. Every song feels the same with barely anything changing. It's truly sad.

Exactly! all I hear in pop songs are lyrics like: "I love you so MUCH! " "lets get. it. on! " "I'm sorri baby that I broke your heart! " "LETS DRINK ALL DAY AND PARTEHKKNBJ! " (the bad spelling is for a bit of comedy). what I am saying is that most pop music are about the same things OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! at least a few good bands are coming back! (though the only one that did not change to pop music is radiohead). I also hate that my fellow LPS (littlest pet shop) tubers are using SOULLESS TRASH for their videos! that is why I am ENCOURAGING these LPS tubers to get out of their comfort zone and make some good mvs with better music!

Bobby Womack once said: "In my day, everybody wanted to sound different, individual. Nowadays, seems like everybody wants to sound like everybody else." Creativity uses influences, but is more than just copying what you admire.

10 Most of the modern Pop songs talk about Drugs, Partying, Sex, and Weed

Guys, please stop pretending that rock bands didn't sing about those things either. There are plenty of rock songs about sex and partying. Don't believe me? Listen to any KISS or AC/DC song. Songs like "Rock n Roll All Night", "Girls Girls Girls", and "Black Dog" are just as meaningless as say, all the Justin Beiber songs yall love to hate on.

The thing we live on (Earth) has lots of problems. Now, would it hurt to sing about something else, except the same stuff again and again and again and again. I honestly think Sex, Drugs, Partying and Weed isn't that great. I get that you are allowed to sing about what you want, but singing about the same stuff homogeneously, isn't gonna make your music better.

Music is no longer family friendly except for the songs that are exclusive to family friendly movies an example being Run Like The River by Meghan Trainor from Playmobil The Movie.

Distract the vacuous. Circling the drain. When did self-destructive behavior become "the real hip culture". You behavior reinforces their false stereo- types.

The Contenders
11 It's too simple

As a music reviewer, I pick apart the songs and analize them. I can get everything there is out of a pop song with my first listen. So why would I want to listen to something with the simplicity of a baby's lullaby when I can listen to less commercial music, perhaps prog rock/metal which you can get so much more out of. This also causes the songs to get old FAST!

You shouldn't hate something just because it's simple. Most of the greatest classic rock tunes are simple in composition, but are still great.
And I feel this list should have been named "Reasons Why MODERN Pop Music Is Awful". Modern pop may be terrible but pop wasn't a bad genre in the past. I am a huge fan of thrash metal, but I also enjoy 80s pop - MJ, Prince, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, etc.

Electronic artists uses a month to combine various sounds to make a truly amazing track without getting much attention, whilst those pop "artists" just spend an hour writing a song with stupid lyrics, sounds and lots of juvenile delinquency. Hopefullu more electronic artists can go popular and show people what is the true music (in my opinion).

With that I mean all of it, simple lyrics, simple instruments and melodic. Its just so simple and repetitive and it hurts my brain. I just put that on the number one because it's the thing which really hurts me physical. And everything is to simple beside that's its bad. Like the lyrics are either simple or stupid or both. the instrumental is either simple or bad or not exicisting. and so on and so for.

12 Only thing that plays on the radio

Once I dreamed that the only thing that played in the radio was Dubstep, Drum 'N' Bass, Classical, Punk and Metalcore. SWEET DREAMS.

I NEVER hear rap songs on 103.1. NEVER. I personally think it is because I live in Australia and their like a rap song with 1 swear word they're like ERMAGHERRD gotta never play it on the radio but play swiftie's bs because it promotes misandrism and it's targets 14 yo girls rather than 80's or Rap or Metal which have much broader audiences but can't be played because 80's doesn't keep up with trends, rapping because it has a small amount of cussing and drugs which are "inappropriate" and metal because it is "satanic".

I agree. I wish I could find a radio station that didn't play pop music, which these days, are always love songs. This is why I listen to the soundtrack I got from iTunes on my phone, or I go to YouTube and find a good song, and even if it's mainstream, it's never a love song, usually like a night core version of Can't Hold Us by Macklemore.

Okay, I like pop music, but it's the only thing that plays along with country where I live. Seriously, we need some rock stations like Linkin Park and Green Day. If they have a station for all genres, I'm happy.

There are stations where I live like KOOL 105.5 and 93.9 MIA that play both rock songs and pop songs.

13 Hard sexual themes

No, not all of them are sexual. Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Alessia Cara, etc are not sexual. Besides what's wrong with being sexual? They have a right to embrace it. If they want to be provocative, LET THEM! Who are you to judge? NO ONE!

True, its hard to find music on the radio that is really appropriate for kids. Not that they completely focus on the lyrics, but they may repeat words they hear

What about Michael Jackson, what about Adele, what about Taylor Swift, what about Alessia Cara, what about current Lady Gaga, what about most of Ed Sheehan?

Good luck turning on the radio and have it child-friendly anymore.

14 Auto-tune

There is nothing wrong with autotune - when used in moderation as mean to add an specific atmosphere to a song. In pop, however, autotune is just used as a way to make mediocre singers sound acceptable. It's a waste of a potential tool...

Auto-tune is a tool, not meant to be used as a vocal effect. Period! Used sparingly, it can help correct difficult notes. My advice as a vocalist... If you have any, use your talent to fix the notes. If you can't, take vocal lessons.

It can apply special effects if used correctly, but the pop "artists" use it to hide the fact that they are talentless losers... just makes me feel dead inside

Most rock bands use auto tune to fix a sharp or flat. But the pop artists I see use it as if it were that pill to keep you alive that doesn't do much.

15 No variety whatsoever

Yes , modern pop is all about love and beats are pretty repetitive, so boring. But some artistes like imagine dragons, twenty one pilots and blackbear are doing great job by adding lot more rock and rap vibes to pop make it much more fresh , energetic and cool.
Not to mention talented pop artistes r there like Halsey , ed Sheeran , Adele that r really talented and know how to make songs

Every pop song that has ever existed is about relationships. Every pop song is either "My girlfriend is mad at me and I want to make amends" or "I love my girl". It is the most unoriginal, exhausted, overused, unrelatable subject to write a song about and it needs to stop.

Subgenres of pop? Um...pop.
Subgenres of metal? Thrash metal, black metal, death metal, Christian metal, speed metal, heavy metal, doom metal, stoner metal, etc.

Dig a bit into the independent music scene. The artists listed on my "homepage" button on my profile are a good starting point.

16 Most modern pop artists are immature

And...this is why pop MUSIC is awful? Just goes to show you how little arguments Metalhead Elitists have. Adele is not immature, Pink isn't very immature (she's just honest really), Kelly Clarkson is not immature, Tyler Joseph is not immature...

Did you forget about that time when Kelly Clarkson lost World Idol? I think that was sometime around 2004 or so.

You're right, man. Did you know every Popstar(when live) uses an acoustic guitar or any similar instrument that sounds like crap. They strum the chords of that guitar and it sounds crap. Sounds like a bucket being hit by an anarchist. I hate them playing only acoustic guitar. So irritating!

Buddy, If I'd known you earlier, I'm certain we would've been best friends. Every single damn point of yours matches my reasons for hating Pop. You're so right.

If you don't agree with this, watch either of Taylor Swift's appearances on New Year's Rocking Eve. You can't deny she's immature.

17 Bad singers

Ok heres the thing, people are listening to the most popular artist hen they could just dig a little deeper and find amazing singers. now not all music is bad these days, try listening to This wild life, D at Sea, Neck deep,Relient k, NF and so many more. this music has a point to it, it means something. it tells a lesson or somebodies life! Music is good today you just have to find the god music that is out there.

There's lots of good pop singers too to be honest. Melanie Martinez is a really good pop artist, But like EVERY good pop artist she's ignored and no talents like Justin Beiber and Katy Perry are noticed.

Look at how many people hate Justing Bieber and Rebecca Black. You listen to their songs and then listen to Taylor Swift. You cannot tell me you don't see any similarities.

If you think Taylor Swift is one of the worst pop singers, I'd recommend listening to more of her music, especially her country music.

Anyone who needs a computer to "sing" needs to take ACTUAL singing lessons. My sister might go into pop, but at least she can sing better than anyone else out there.

18 No poetry

Why does music have to be poetry? If you hate pop music, just stop listening to it. You can't force people to listen to "poetry" songs

You call Nickelback and Skrillex "poetry" then?

Why does it need to be poetry?

19 No passion

Today's music has no soul. Look at Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven, Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In, Light My Fire, Saturday Night Fever, Thriller, Hotel California, Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon. That was real music. Where is that kind of music today? Nowhere--it gets pushed right out of existence by the whole system. You have another Thriller, another Dark Side of the Moon, another Saturday Night Fever, another Led Zeppelin IV, it gets put in the rubbish bin.

Any wonder why people would rather download classic rock, classic disco, classic soul, classic country, classic R&B, classic pop? Even the Beatles, who were lambasted for "debauched music" back in their day, are far superior to today's lame, soul-less robots that make what we take for music. And, where are the comments of today's music being debauched, as opposed to being soul-less?

Music is meant to be passionate. The reason many artists only compose, play and sing to one topic is because they feel a connection. A passion. They will sing with all their heart and lungs to get a message across. They will play an instument until their lungs are ready to burst and their fingers are sore. They will compose until day turns to night. Pop music, however, is not passionate. They only care about money, and even songs about that are rubbish. Ask pop music fans if they've ever cried to a piece of pop music. Their answer will most likely be "No, but... I thought..." or "Umm... Yeah... (lies)".

Yeah, most of them just care about how much money they make. When they sing, they sound like robots: flat and emotionless. Now, not ALL of them are like that, I do know a couple of pop singers who put their heart and soul into the lyrics they belt out, and some older singers sing/play instruments emotionlessly. But majority of them don't really have passion in music and that sucks.

Not only all those things, because I totally agree, but the most Pop performers don't even write their own music! So I feel that they have no real connection to what they're singing, even though what they were singing about is complete crap. They just pay other people to do the work for them, and it's still not even good.

20 It's repetitive

To be honest I don't know if this is a fair reason... I mean early Beatles stuff (I Want to Hold Your Hand, She Loves You, etc.) are quite repetitive, and yet it's considered classic. I do dislike modern pop (with some exceptions), but I don't think repetition is really the problem.

Rihanna has repetitive lyrics in some of her awful tracks (Birthday Cake, S&M, Work...), but she has great music that isn't repetitive (Love the Way You Lie, Disturbia, Love on the Brain), so what is the issue with this?

Yes! The music is the most annoying music ever! They really Shame the legendary artists like MJ, Janet, Whitney and even people of other genres like The Beatles, Elvis, and many more.

Baby now we've got bad blood... yeah shut the hell up Taylor at least you have blood

21 Annoyingly always playing

I agree, I like listening to this one radio station and there was this one song. Oh what was it called? Oh, yes I remember it was called "Welcome To The Black Parade." I love this song, but the station just kept playing it. So now I can barely listen to it. Isn't that hard to believe, a ROCK/ALTERNATIVE song being overplayed. *sarcastic voice* Yeah, idiots it's all up to what station you listen to. So if you don't like the songs that keep being played, don't listen to that station.

For the last few months of 2017, "What About Us" by Pink was literally always playing. Tell me how many times you've heard that song. Now in April 2018 it still plays constantly, but mainly on "variety" stations (97.9 WRMF and KOOL 105.5 are examples where I live).

"Take me to Church" isn't annoying and is actually meaningful with the lyrics and meaning. The other songs however are excessive although does anyone remember the nuisance that was "Selfie"

What's so bad about that? It's pop music because it's popular therefore it plays a lot. Now it could go two ways: it could be annoying like "Closer," or it could be really fun like "Work From Home."

22 Some focus on the music video more than the actual song

Those K-pop videos with pornographic dancing and painfully catchy beats. Sigh.

Greedy people made songs about women's butts a thing. Disgraceful as hell.

This is actually true. :/

23 They are popular because of their looks, not talent

This should be top 5. I miss when people were famous because of their talent, not looks. RIP Good music: 1950s-2012

Most of them are pretty but can't sing to save their lives.

Exactly! we should focus on the music, not the people making it!

So why do we focus on if Justin Bieber made a song? Seriously, he could make a song that surpasses Imagine by John Lennon, and no one would let him win.

Sia is pop and she covers her face

24 It's more for the money

This is so true.Why is Nicki Minaj(The worst singer and rapper who just makes songs about how big her ass is) more well known than Immortal Technique(A highly underrated rapper who makes some meaningful and political songs) or why is One Direction(A bad band who might not be Blood On The Dance Floor level bad bit still a bad band and a band that is highly overrated) more well known than Rage Against The Machine(A band that combines Rap/Hip Hop,Heavy Metal and Alternative and they also have songs that speak out against bad stuff done by the government and by really big corporations),just why are bad musicians with either horrible lyrics or repetitive lyrics more well known than good musicians who have good lyrics that speak the truth? -DarkBoi-X

They Psychologically make popular songs sound good and the same so many people will buy it instead of a variety of music and creativity.

Warner Bros music legit rejected Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco just because it didn’t have the potential to be commercially successful. Money hungry idiots.

25 Most pop stars are fake

@Metalhead1997
The guy that commented, sure Selena Gomez may not be the BEST, but shes improved singing wise. I watched her Revival concert, and she SLAYED.
But I still like her songs and at least she sounds good with autotune (because some people like jacob sartorius and bieber use autotune and even THEN they sound bad)

Tell me. What's a fake singer? Anyone can sing. It just doesn't have to be talented and you'd have to get hate.

Especially K-pop. Ghost writers and plastic surgery everywhere...

Fake boobs, fake butt, fake nose, fake everything...
