Reasons Why Pop Music is Bad for Your Brain

I like the fact that you guys know Pop music is bad. But still, you're gonna need evidences. Luckily, scientists have successfully proven that Pop is bad for our BRAINS. Here are some of the evidences I've found from scientific experiments and from real life.

The Top Ten

1 It can brainwash you to like it, even if you hate it

This list is lame. There is no such thing as music with a cancer or a virus - Neonco31

Some pop songs can't brainwash me - lovingicecreams

Um no it can't...because if you hate it, you won't be listening to it... - Nickelstickman

I'll give you this, Tommy. You made a list that's at least hilariously awful.

There's no such thing as brainwashing music. You either like it or you don't. - WonkeyDude98

2 It destroys your creativity

Really now? Is there statistics or is this just any old site?

Hm. So that's why I, despite liking pop music, have been praised my all of my core class teachers about my creativity in writing and ideas. - WonkeyDude98

3 It disrupts studying and work performance

Yep. If you only care about pop music and you didn't care about study/work performance - lovingicecreams

You shouldn't be listening to music while doing work if it's that important. - WonkeyDude98

4 You will be interested in inappropriate things such as drugs

Because metal doesn't endorse things just as bad if not worse. - WonkeyDude98

There are songs about drugs in all genres! - BeatlesFan1964

This is one of the dumbest lists I've ever seen on this site. I've been listening to pop ever since I was little (i.e. Michael Jackson, yet he wasn't even a pop artist, he was R&B) and I think drugs are god damn disgusting, even smoking cigarettes, but I won't judge you if you do either. - Mcgillacuddy

5 Pop stars endorse terrible, unhealthy products

And metal doesn't? You know, despite the tired, stale motifs of metal that give about as much benefit to society as any pop product?

Oh yeah, and the fact that I have yet to see a metal band give charity to people who need it, what I've seen many pop artists do. - WonkeyDude98

Metallica donated the money made from tickets sold on their latest concert to charity, so there's that. - PhantomMilitia

6 You can't stop listening to it. Thus, you'll forget to do things that are actually important

Can't stop listening to it? Easy. Just put down the device you're using to listen to it, and do what you need to do. - WonkeyDude98

I honestly can't remember the last time I enjoyed a Pop song. I just don't care for it anymore. - Britgirl

I can listen to music and do homework at the same time easy, so it makes no difference. - Mcgillacuddy

7 You won't be able to control yourself

How? I have full authority over my own consciousness and body. What does pop music, or any music genre in general, have to do with that? - Mcgillacuddy

True. If you give me a wig of Gaga, YAS! - ArigatoKawaii

Lol. I would have nearly killed someonr in insane mode - Neonco31

Proof? - WonkeyDude98

8 You never think about global issues such as equality, world peace, etc

There are tons of music artists in all genres that make music on this subject. You're literally just making stuff up. - Mcgillacuddy

Proof? I think of these things a lot. - WonkeyDude98

9 You will end up using the computer instead of real musical instruments

You CANNOT seriously compare controlling electronics to actually MAKING music by virtue of mastering INSTRUMENTS. I'm no fan of metal (or pop), but this argument about equivalency between real and fake music is tired and ridiculous.

This is and always will be the weakest complaint against electronic music. That's like saying I'm a hypocrite because I like cooking my popcorn in the microwave instead of going out and cooking popcorn over a campfire. - Mcgillacuddy

I know a friend who actually DOES produce, and let me tell you from his experience it's decidedly more difficult to program a DAW than use actual percussion. - WonkeyDude98

I love my laptop - Neonco31
