Top 10 Songs that Describe Modern Pop Music

To me pop music has been dead since the 90's these are songs that describe how I feel about Modern pop music. If you're a fan of pop music please don't get too triggered by this list, this list is subjective.

The Top Ten

1 Can't Stand You - Slayer

Obvious...Better to ignore it than to heed it. - Ananya

Yes!, I Hate Most Modern Pop Music! - VideoGamefan5

Describes it perfectly in my opinion

Here are some modern pop songs that break the stereotype set by people who think it's all poorly used autotune and meaningless drivel.

Present Tense, All I Need, and Daydreaming by Radiohead.
Freedom and Sandcastles by Beyonce.
Pink + White, Pyramids, Thinkin About You, Ivy, and Nights by Frank Ocean.
Heartless, Flashing Lights, and Runaway by Kanye West.
Midnight City by M83.

Check those out, and then come back and tell me it's all bad. - SwagFlicks

And also, I can give you the link for Lemonade, it has both of the two songs by Beyonce on there. - SwagFlicks

2 Trash - Korn

Its Trash Indeed - VideoGamefan5

Eh, I don't hate modern pop. But to be honest I'm not very "picky" when it comes to this kind of stuff for whatever reason lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I just don't like most modern pop and if you really don't like this list you can vote on something else.

Yeah... no further explanation needed.

3 Alright - Kendrick Lamar

It's actually great. Modern Pop is better than old pop which is too cheesy. Ariana Grande and others like Jessica J and Selena Gomez are better than crap like Whitney Houston. - AlphaQ

Mediocre's more accurate.

Not the best, not the worst. - djpenquin999

Its far from Alright, Its ATROCIOUD - VideoGamefan5

4 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback

Makes me want to burn it to the ground tonight in my opinion.

Best title to describe Modern Pop music!

5 Maybe IDK - Jon Bellion
6 Everybody's Fool - Evanescence

This song literally targets false pop stars/ praiahs of the 90's like Britney Spears I don't think I need to go on.

Kinda funny that Evanescence, the most derivative and unbearably angsty act in music barring Linkin Park, would make this song. - WonkeyDude98

7 Good Time - Owl City

I hope this is sarcastic - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

8 Cancer - My Chemical Romance

Don't use an amazing and well-written song about patients of the titular disease to describe your laughable musical bias. Lists like this prove that this site seems to think their opinions are always in the right, when truthfully, they are merely being sacred cows. Lotta chutzpah.


Cancer it is.

9 Disasterpiece - Slipknot

Describes it pretty well.

10 Into You - Ariana Grande

The Contenders

11 Why You Always Hatin? - YG

Yeah. What's with all the hate? - AlphaQ

Like, it isn't that bad. Better than Crunkcore. - djpenquin999

12 Fake It - Seether

Sums it up from start to finish.

Awesome song - Nonpointed

13 Turn It Off - Paramore
14 Let It Bleed - The Rolling Stones
15 Pretty Good - Jon Prine
16 We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister

25 I Got S*** - Pearl Jam

26 Worthless - Bullet for My Valentine
27 Brain Damage - Pink Floyd

Once again, using a brilliant work from an amazing artist to describe blatant idiocy is pathetic.

Bad for your brain agreed - Lucretia

28 Yes - Manic Street Preachers
29 Alright, Okay - Ashley Tisdale
