Things In Music That People Love or Hate

The Top Ten

1 Dubstep

Most people get excited from the beat drops & wobbles. Others think it's just noise & annoying. - ruJILLous

I only like the beat drop, my opinion people! - Catacorn

I can certainly understand why some people dislike it. They've only heard mainstream dubstep. If they try out Electus or Gemini, this may turn them around. - PositronWildhawk

2 Rap

Never understood the hate for Rap. Never was a huge fan of it, but I do like it. Maybe they just don't like the constant profanity (not always, just a lot of times) because of the culture it is in. Oh, well. - Donut

I was never a fan of Rap and I probably never will be, and I never liked Rap, but I never for a second thought that all Rap is stupid and requires no talent. There's some rappers that I do like like Chuck-D and Eminem.

I like Rap, but it's not for everyone.

In my opinion, it just entertains idiots - gemcloben

4 Classical

Classical is overrated. But when combined with metal, you get the perfect results!

While some people think it's beautiful & peaceful, others find it boring. - ruJILLous

Appeals mainly to adults, very few children under age 21 can appreciate it.

5 Pop

Pop is the most popular genre as of today. Many of the most popular artists make music of this genre. Lots of people think pop sucks & all the pop artists a bad. Some people even lost faith in music because of pop. - ruJILLous

Coldplay and Radiohead keep me sane

Pop is a mixture of different genre so it isn't technically a genre of its own - jmepa1234

I can't think of one single person who likes him. Really I can't at all.

I think this is where we draw a line between sane people and mainstream pop music. - PositronWildhawk

JB went one step too far past my 'I don't mind' zone - jmepa1234

9 Songs About Sex and Money

People who like that crap are most likely ignorant teenagers who never heard real music. - ruJILLous

Like 75% of "music" being played on the radio nowadays.

It doesn't really matter what its about, a songs a song - gemcloben

She isn't someone what we either love or hate, but someone that we both love and hate. I hate her because she is an awful role model but I love her because she has a great vocal range and she makes cool songs. - PrettyLittleLiars_BiggestFan

People are very split about Rihanna. People either love her or hate her.

16 Shock Rock

Many people find it more satanic

17 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato
18 Black Metal

I don't like it, but there would always be a band who would play black metal music which doesn't have satanic imagery and lyrics.
