Top 10 Reasons Why Pop Music Is Awful

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Appeals to the General Audience

Ummm, why mainstream music is always compared with metal/rock? There are lots of music genres (jazz, reggae, classical, etc) Maybe people who hate mainstream music only listen to rock/metal? Why you don't compare mainstream music with jazz, reggae, classical, etc. I won't compare mainstream music with those genres either because I don't really listen to those genres, I'm just wondering if a fan of those genres also hates mainstream music or is it just rock/metal fans being mean to mainstream music?

How is this bad? I mean, it can go horribly wrong (looking at YOU, Meghan Trainor and 5 Seconds of Summer), but often, it just leads to a song being harmless and mediocre (such as Baby) rather than outright offensive. - WonkeyDude98

I do agree that when a song is overplayed, it becomes really annoying, but this is the same for every genre of music, not only pop. Pop music exists for a reason, it appeals to the mass audience and is relatable, although not to everyone. This is why it tends to be simple, but this is not always the case, there are many complex pop songs out there. People saying that metal or rock music is better, are very biased.

Metal often includes screaming and the cliché distorted guitars, quick drums/tempo, longer song duration, complex harmonics, which may be appealing to some people but to the general audience, sounds terrible and overdone, hence why I call people who state it is better, very hypocritical and biased.

Rock typically includes, repeated verses, hooks and the same set of instruments. Pop music tends ...more

Music is no longer art when you look to your fans for inspiration! I love artists who make art, not TRASH!

43 The Background

The background does all the singing, while the vocals are less heard and are very useless. We want to hear more vocals!

It's called production. And it really depends, like in any genre, some songs are well produced, and some aren't.

44 Songs are overplayed

Just because it overplayed, doesn't mean pop music is awful. If 1960 until 1980 rock music ia overplayed in radio, why you must become hater when pop music is overplayed in 2000 until now. - BeaM456
