Top 10 Ways to Tell If Someone's Music Taste is BadI'm not saying as a fact that this makes someone's taste in music bad. All I'm saying is that if you're a rock fan like me especially, these things might make you think that someone's music taste is bad.
The Top Ten
One of the stupidest lists I've ever seen. There is no such thing as "bad music taste". There are no such thing as "good music", "bad music" or "real music" either. Music taste is purely based off on subjective individual preference. - Joeljohns249
So you are stating here that since I listen to EDM, I have bad music taste? - ArtisticLuna
Not true. There are good ones out there. It's just this whole website has a huge lack of this. - LightningStrike
There's no such thing as a bad music taste. This is all opinionated. - BananaBrain19 Comments
I could really care less if the music I listen to has instruments or not. - Luckys
Sadly, I rarely hear real instruments in recent songs... - Misfire
True - LightningStrike
How are real instruments outdated? - Userguy444 Comments
Some soundcloud rappers I like. - Luckys
I hate soundcloud rap, but I may be one as a get rich and famous for just screaming curses. - XxembermasterxX
The good ones hired ghost producers and the bad ones are flat out disastrous. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Or rap at all. - KalloFox342 Comments
Most of these aren't bad music tastes, just one sided tastes or people being ignorant to other genres without acknowledge their qualities or impact. - Martin_Canine
That metal is just screaming, that pop requires no talent, that all rappers write about is drugs and girls, that all rockers are drug addicts and that all country is about whiskey and heartbreak. - 3DG20
Don't forget that electronic music is just noise and classical is boring. - Alkadikce
That's weird. - Misfire
No, people are still rocking to the great songs by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Queen to this day. It's actually most of the artists that people who say this like who will be outdated in 20 years. - allamassal
What about classical music? The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Queen are just 40-50 years old, it's not very long compared to baroque music, which is still listened by some after 300 years. - Alkadikce
In 2038, no one can tell apart 6ix9ine and Lil Pump. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Yep. When I told some kids on a FaceTime-like app that I like heavy metal they says that it's music of the devil (or they asked that and got worried). I told them that it isn't true. - PhoenixAura81
The only satanic metal band I like is Behemoth but that’s because I just really like everything but the lyrics.
6ix9ine is a disgrace and I don't know how some people I know like him. A kid in my grade even raps some of his songs and thinks he's "cute". - PhoenixAura81
He should die already. - XxembermasterxX
So all of my classmates
All he does is yell in his songs lol ew2 Comments
I can't even imagine what this person would be like...YIKES - emraldYE
Yes those who are constantly criticising others taste in music usually have poor (or at least close mined) tastes themselves this needs to be number one.
This list is getting out of hand, so I have no other choice but to add this. - XxembermasterxX
There is no such thing as a bad music taste. Well, except for Nightcore, Pornogrind etc. These genres are terrible and shouldn’t be considered as real music. - Userguy441 Comment
I didn't know this was possible. Jk.
But seriously. He's that bad. - Misfire
LMAO, AND ALSO REBECCA BLACK
Yeah. Metallica is EXACTLY like Blood on the Dance Floor (sarcasm).
Metallica is godly music. Blood on the Dance Floor is not even music. - PhoenixAura81
That's the genre that some of the worst stuff comes from. - allamassal
For once more, TRNDSTTR is the worst trap song ever. - MChkflaguard_Yt
That doesn't mean they have a bad taste that means they're ignorant. - ThatIntrovertedEmo
This is not bad music taste, just bad understanding of genres - Alkadikce
21 Pilots is good, but they're not rock. - KalloFox34
I never thought they were rock. - allamassal1 Comment
If you think that punching randomly a console and taking as "cool" what you get Is music... - jkk
Good EDM is real music. - Userguy44
I hate EDM. - ThatIntrovertedEmo
If you listen to the right artist. - XxembermasterxX2 Comments
It still requires talent, but everyone can write lyrics about love right? - Userguy44
Maybe, but lyrics about love can be done right and wrong as well. From the viewpoint of a pop fan (not me of course), everyone can write lyrics about hell and war as well but it doesn't mean he can write remarkable metal lyrics - Alkadikce
Why is that bad taste? How you guys HEARD 2010s pop music? The singers of these terrible songs are braindead! - KalloFox34
It's "real" music, just not the most sophisticated and musically valuable one. Not real music is John Cage's 4'33" - Alkadikce
Some is good the rest is trash. - ThatIntrovertedEmo
It is real music. So is rock, heavy metal, rap etc. Just because you don't like a certain genre doesn't mean it isn't real music. - Luckys
It looks like someone hasn't listened to Animal Collective. - The_Crimson_King7 Comments
My classmate thought the same for rock music. - Misfire
It's a joke, right?
How dumb can people be? - Userguy44
Screming is not a genre... logic please? - MChkflaguard_Yt1 Comment
You hate Justin Bieber = your taste in music is bad
9 years later, you'd think we could get the mindless JB hate to go away. It's ANNOYING as hell! - emraldYE
I only like 3 of his songs, but he isn't that great. - Luckys
This actually makes some sense. Some people, when asked to say what's good about a music artist, come up with the sales figures they had as reasons. - Alkadikce
Some of the mainstream pop songs are good. - Userguy44
Mainstream music is great in my opinion - Luckys
Not every mainstream music is bad though. - Misfire1 Comment
Then almost everybody has bad musical taste because Hey Jude is one of the most popular songs of all time - Alkadikce
I like some repetitive songs, but they aren't annoying to me. - Luckys
I like the songs So Lonely and She Loves You, even though their choruses are repetitive. If you think my music taste is bad ‘cause of this, then I don’t care. At least I enjoy what I listen to. - Misfire
Guitars and rEaL InStRuMeNtS don't automatically make a song superior.
This list in a nutshell.
Should be higher - B1ueNew
Hypocrite Land - 4459562 Comments
I'm one of those people who call anything before 2019 old. - Luckys
Actually calling 2000s hit songs like In the End old makes some sense, because there are songs that can get "old" with overplay and time. I'm not interested if an underground thrash band is from the 1980s but I really think a pop hit from 2012 that is still being played is already getting old. - Alkadikce
What if they call anything before 2018 old? - Alkadikce
I think that would describe me perfectly. - oneshot
What does that mean? - KalloFox34
I'd say that Lil Pump should be on this list too, but let's face it. No one likes Lil Pump except ironically.
Lil Pump should be on that list too. He sucks more than Lil Wanye.
They all suck! - PhoenixAura81
I think Lil Wayne, XXXTentacion, and Kodak Black are good rappers - Luckys2 Comments
I don't like it at all. - Misfire
I'm not a fan, but there is nothing wrong with liking it, and whoever says you have bad music tastes for listening to it just ignore them they are nothing but immature losers that are better off without the internet. - diehardfan
I like Blackpink. - Luckys
I don’t like it. - Userguy441 Comment
My bff does this ALL the time
I know I may sound stupid but are R&B and Rap the same thing?
I thought Chris Brown was a rap artist... - Luckys
NO kHaLId iS rEal r&B - oneshot
First I am told not to listen to mainstream pop, now not to listen to non-mainstream pop. - Alkadikce
That's bad? There are a lot of great unknown pop stars Ex: Karin Park and Elley Duhe. - XxembermasterxX
This list is just becoming a way to bash someone for having a different taste honestly. - ThatIntrovertedEmo
Troll item - DrayTopTens
Most of the good music I listen too came out either 2010 or 2011
This genre and literally any others with the word grind in it (i.e. pornogrind, a disgusting mess, and goregrind, which is also a disgusting mess) make me want to throw up. - PhoenixAura81
I listen to Drake, I just don't LIKE it. - oneshot
Drake sucks - Luckys
Pretty much every guy in my grade at my 6th and 8th grade school. - PhoenixAura81
Hate me all you want, but there is nothing wrong with liking rap, and this is coming from a rap hater. - XxembermasterxX
Because it’s real music. - Userguy44
Lots of older rap is awesome amd can have amazing lyrics about many things such as the treatment of African Americans in society, and even some modern rappers have the ability to make great songs with great lyrics such as Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) and Kendrick Lamar. However, most modern rappers make horrible songs with some of the worst lyrics (I’m looking at you Tyga). - PhoenixAura81
What's wrong with turning up the radio when it plays a song you like? - Alkadikce
...Like 90% of this list. You're all being remarkably pretentious.
