Things In Music That People Love or Hate

The Top Ten

1 Dubstep

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

I just think its noise - gemcloben

I hate this style of music - jmepa1234

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

Although its mostly hate

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 listen to rap for about 2 years when pepole on this site talked about Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne I thughted they can't be that bad...It can't be unheard what I heard

Metal is what I live for, hate metal? then Hate me too. - Ananya

Heavy metal is great!

Heavy Metal rules :3 - SweetsongRiverClan143

4 Classical

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

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

Its very technical, but boring - gemcloben

I'm an inbetweener on this subject - jmepa1234

5 Pop

Coldplay and Radiohead keep me sane

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

What's bad about pop? Oh yeah...Justin Bieber. But not all pop is bad.

The only pop artist or group that I lik is OneRepublic

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

9 Songs About Sex and Money

I hate them. they are nasty - SanjayandCraigSucks

It depends in what way its written. Songs like Can't Buy Me Love by The Beatles is about money but that isn't a bad song. - jmepa1234

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.

People think that he lost his effort, and I don't think that's true at all. True, his latest album is very different from his previous works, but his music has been changing over time anyway. His music is no less imaginative, and no less talent has been put into it. He's always been a great musician. He's even said himself that he's a perfectionist. - PositronWildhawk

22 Nu Metal

Nu Metal is still good! Though not as hard as the classics, it's still pretty great considering the music of that time.

I like bands like Korn, Deftones, Disturbed, and System of a Down. But I hate bands like Limp Bizkit.
