Top Ten Things That Ruined the Music Industry
The Top Ten
Madonna was the one who started this stupid trend. She paved the way for mediocre singers to become famous because of their sex appeal and their willingness to create a provocative and overtly sexual image of themselves.
This is one of the absolute worst things.
This why Slipknot wears their masks mask
Justin at Number One? People still make good music, just it does not get popular enough. - 445956
The modern kind ruined it. Especially the ones with sexist and racist lyrics in them.
Rap started off okay but now a lot of songs sound like a 6 year old put together lyrics they found in some angry deviants journal. Bring back talent, instruments and melody.
There are many rappers that are better than Eminem and its not too hard to find them so open your eyes. - MLGPoossySlayer6969
Everything about rap suck ruin music industry same arrange use auto tune no skill all is about lit dope showoff
Tones and I.
It's annoying! If you can't song well, then get good at it! Don't use an effect to make to sound like you can sing! - myusernameisthis
Something is wrong with this in this list, Nu Metal is the best Metal genre out there and one of the coolest genres of all time. - Johnalove
Korn, Disturbed, Soulfly and Slipknot
Eeww who listen to that stuff its gross - Thump
Go listen to your One Direction and don't mess up with real music genres. - Johnalove
Except for songs exclusive to animated movies.
Video killed the radio star.
This gets my vote because MTV is a Tele-VISION and focuses more on what you see (looks) than on what you hear (music). - Metal_Treasure
Brought us all this glam metal - gemcloben
MTV always cares incompetent pop stars. - 05yusuf09
It got a lot worse in the very late 2010s and early 2020s with even more crappy and cringeworthy sounding music from this genre.
Modern pop. Ugh! - Misfire
Its made with ghost producers and sounds all the same.
Pop music and rap music is NASTY.
Thank you! I was scared this wouldn't be on the list. This should totally be #1. Music is mostly about sin nowadays, it's so sad. End times are here. - TheHabsFan
That's all there is to music. Except Tones and I but her singing could really use some work so that it sounds less annoying.
Y'all do realize that your favorite bands AC/DC and KISS made songs about this too, right? - RiverVibeZ
I'm sure the song titled "Entrails Ripped from a Virgins C*** " is perfectly okay, because its metal. But if a artist nowadays says any reference to sex, drugs, or money they deserve to be shot. Just because a certain style of lyrics doesn't appeal to you doesn't mean it doesn't appeal to others. - MLGPoossySlayer6969
I'm surprised he is not higher in this list. - ShyChick
Why do people always say he's that bad? I mean, he's not the best singer in the world. But I still think he has a lot of talent. - dipperpinesfangirl618
He is killed the music along with Nicki Minaj, no doubt. - 05yusuf09
It's always obvious he's number 1. - Neonco31
These guys and Bieber will soon fade away, we should be so lucky as to have Rap fade away just as quickly.
This music group is for gay people who have been in a row in themselves.
Though I'm pissed that they did not disband, I think they actually sounded BETTER without zayn...
If Justin Bieber joined 1 direction I would kill myself
The reality is that the kids who hate on her are intimidated by the fact that a regular, everyday kid from Pittsburgh, who is their own age, has emerged onto the world stage with a historic talent level.
Ruined this site more than music - gemcloben
Could at least put this at number 4?
This is offensive to people who like rock music
It is actually racist. - 445956
Oh please, today's pop and rap music are nowhere better...in fact rap music is not wholesome either.
Her music from 2008-2010 were much better.
I hate that trashy bitch
I hate dubstep it's so overrated and dumb - Harri666
Worst music genre ever. - 05yusuf09
How is dubstep on this list? I mean really, is dubstep not the definition of music? I can feel exactly the anger or joy or agony of the musician when he put together that aaah wubwubwub we hfhfhfhf lo flaflaflafla zien shaaa psh oOOOo weeieieiei wuoiuouw
Screaming fans are nothing new; Rudolf Valentino in the 1920's, Bing Crosby in the 1930's, Frank Sinatra in the 1940's, Elvis Presley in the 1950's, etc, etc. etc.
Honey screaming fans have existed long before we were born. Frank Sinatra started this trend along with Elvis. The Beatles had the biggest one but they tried to end it just to take their music career seriously.
It may me nothing new, but it is bad - gemcloben
Its all about the money, not music - gemcloben
That's all there is to music now.
That's WHY MOST PEOPLE SUCK TODAY!
G.r.e.e.d. What describes modern singers? Greed!
They may not be applicable to all genres, but they do take a lot of talent. I don't really see songs that have pretty long guitar solos nowadays. But I'm not saying that having no guitar solos is bad.
If you want guitar solos, listen to metal music! - Metal_Treasure
The only number 1 songs of the year with guitar solos are thinking out loud and rude. there not really eddie Van Halen. - gemcloben
This should be 2nd after Bieber
He is one of the reasons why the Charts is Crap.
The biggest ass to ever walk the face of the earth.
He knows what he's doing. I'm glad ratm destroyed him. - gemcloben
Hope he gets 'Shot' one day. He is a 'Wanker' so he is.
You got that right
Skrillex helped muse make dubstep. Why. Muse shouldn't do any more dubstep ever again. Hey at least the video was creepy as a living nugget. (See: muse-unsustainable)
Liters,skrillex is awesome - Nateawesomeness
There is better ones than napster now - gemcloben
No one uses Napster anymore. We have piratebay and it's 100 times better then Napster. I support music downloading and if you don't like it tough - Sabbath
Cancer. - RiverVibeZ
Need I say more?
How she isn't in the top 10? - 05yusuf09
Who is this? I have never heard his music. - RiverVibeZ
I mean, yeah.
Nicki Minaj for example duh... - Neonco31
In music videos
And from there, 1997 happened and music went downhill from there...
I'm so sad that I'm to young to have lived in those times
They basically made a new genre for whiny little kids that cut themselves for attention.
What IS THIS DOING? YA BEING OFFENSIVE TO US! (i'm an emo kid )
There's still plenty of great music if you actually look for it.
No it doesn't. that's why I made this list - gemcloben
So basically the people who vote on this list - SammMinajj
She is so repulsive.
And a "song" called Twerk It Like Miley was made! What is up with the new generation?!
Like how Justin Bieber called The Beatles the crap band and how Gucci Mane said that he is better than Nas.
If I were a popular modern musician, I wouldn't dare call Joy Division "unnecessary crap" or pass Patti Smith off as "a product of that damned CBGB thing"...
At least her role in the Playmobil Movie and the movie's song "Run Like The River" was good.
This is why Limp Bizkit got famous.
All kpop is bad - gemcloben
Classical music has been around for over 700 years, and is responsible for creating the music industry.
It helped make it - gemcloben
The number 1 reason there's no money in making music anymore
