Top Ten Things That Most Ruined the Music Industry

The Top Ten
1 People Getting Judged on Looks

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.

Justin at Number One? People still make good music, just it does not get popular enough.

This is one of the absolute worst things.

This why Slipknot wears their masks mask

2 Rap

I disagree rappers like 2pac Eminem notorious b.I.g and even some current rappers like Kendrick Lamar aren't that bad I'm not saying rap is the best (there is a lot of bad current rap) but it's definitely better then some other genres (country )

I thought that whoever put this on the list, actually meant mumble rap. Rap was on fire and had legends back in the days, but then Lil Wayne ruined the music industry, and so did Nicki Minaj, so it is actually mumble rap such as Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Future and Young Thug. This rap as a whole did not ruin the music industry, it’s just most of today’s rap, best known as mumble rap.

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.

3 Auto-Tune

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!

4 Almost All Songs Having a Reference to Sex

Except for songs exclusive to animated movies.

5 Nu-Metal

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.

Eeww who listen to that stuff its gross

Go listen to your One Direction and don't mess up with real music genres.

Korn, Disturbed, Soulfly and Slipknot

6 Songs About Partying, Sex, and Drugs Becoming Popular Among the Mainstream Crowd

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.

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?

7 MTV MTV is an American basic cable and satellite television channel which is a part of the "Viacom Music and Entertainment Group" which is the flagship Property of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom, of which it is a subsidiary.

This gets my vote because MTV is a Tele-VISION and focuses more on what you see (looks) than on what you hear (music).

Video killed the radio star.

MTV always cares incompetent pop stars.

Brought us all this glam metal

8 Pop

It got a lot worse in the very late 2010s and early 2020s with even more crappy and cringeworthy sounding music from this genre.

Its made with ghost producers and sounds all the same.

Pop music and rap music is NASTY.

Modern pop. Ugh!

9 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

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.

He is the logical result and product of this same industry - he embodies it.

He is killed the music along with Nicki Minaj, no doubt.

Yummy is his worst song ever, even worse than Baby.

11 One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

These guys and Bieber will soon fade away, we should be so lucky as to have Rap fade away just as quickly.

Though I'm pissed that they did not disband, I think they actually sounded BETTER without zayn...

The are stupid. Once I said "I don't like one direction" on msp and some teen girl told me to kill myself.

This music group is for gay people who have been in a row in themselves.

12 Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, ...read more.

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

13 The Rumor of Rock and Metal Being the Devil's Music

This is offensive to people who like rock music

Could at least put this at number 4?

It is actually racist.

Oh please, today's pop and rap music are nowhere better...in fact rap music is not wholesome either.

14 Ke$ha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. ...read more.

Her music from 2008-2010 were much better.

I hate that trashy bitch

15 Dubstep

I hate dubstep it's so overrated and dumb

Worst music genre ever.

Sarcasm ahead:
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

16 Billboard
17 Screaming Fans

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.

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.

It may me nothing new, but it is bad

18 Greed

Its all about the money, not music

That's all there is to music now.

G.r.e.e.d. What describes modern singers? Greed!

19 No More Guitar Solos

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.

The only number 1 songs of the year with guitar solos are thinking out loud and rude. there not really eddie Van Halen.

If you want guitar solos, listen to metal music!

This should be 2nd after Bieber

20 Posers
21 Simon Cowell Simon Phillip Cowell is an English reality television judge, entrepreneur, philanthropist, film, record, and television producer.

The biggest ass to ever walk the face of the earth.

He is one of the reasons why the Charts is Crap.

Hope he goes away soon. He is a 'Disgrace' to 'Music' so he is, giving us 'Honey G' who has no Talent at all. Wanker he is...

He knows what he's doing. I'm glad ratm destroyed him.

22 Pop Fangirls

You got that right

23 Trap

He is part of the bands Jack Ü (DJ) and From First To Last (Lead Singer). His album Recess debuted at 4 on the BB200, tying him with Zedd for the highest debut for an EDM album on ...read more.

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

25 Napster

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

There is better ones than napster now
