Top 10 Ways to Tell If Someone's Music Taste is Bad

I'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

1 They Only Listen to Pop/Rap/EDM

Yay, according to this list my music taste is excellent! (but I really don't do any of the things mentioned here) - Metal_Treasure

I listen to pop (including alt-pop), EDM, and rock. I think the worst and most annoying stuff comes from rap. - allamassal

Do you want to start another flame war? Do you? - djpenquin999

Listening to the genre is no crime in and of itself, it's when they refuse to listen to anything else.

2 They Call Music with Real Instruments "Outdated"

What about classical music then? What about the classics Mozart, Beethoven and many more? They use solely instruments! - MChkflaguard_Yt

Playing instruments takes talent but it kind of is if popular music doesn't do it now. - 445956

Kinda true :/ - awesomedp900

I don’t like synthetic instrumentation. By that I mean EDM, computer generated music. I’m all for keyboard and guitar synths, like Iron Maiden did on Somewhere In Time, I don’t like synthetic instruments because they’re too fake feeling to me. I respect the talent it takes but I don’t like it at all.

3 They Like Soundcloud Rappers

The good ones hired ghost producers and the bad ones are flat out disastrous. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Soundcloud rappers are what's killing Rap.-DarkBoi-X

4 They Think Twenty One Pilots is Rock

I like twenty one pilots, but they are not rock. Also, there's no such thing as a bad taste in music. - Sop

I never thought they were rock. - allamassal

5 They Like Jacob Sartorius

I agree

6 They Call Rock, and Metal, "Satan Music"

The only satanic metal band I like is Behemoth but that’s because I just really like everything but the lyrics.

7 Their Favorite Genre is Trap Rap

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

8 They Think Modern Pop is Real Music

Heck, I know too many of these idiots. They have about as much musical insight as a gnat. - PositronWildhawk

It looks like someone hasn't listened to Animal Collective. - The_Crimson_King

50s / 60s / 70s Pop = Very, very good.
80s Pop = Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
90s Pop = Bleh.
00s Pop = What the...? - Britgirl

I can't believe people actually like prolefeed orgasm simulations! Whst the heck! - MChkflaguard_Yt

9 They Think Anything Made Before the 2010s is "Outdated"

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

10 They Like Justin Bieber

Bustin Jieber

The Contenders

11 They Think Scene Bands are Metal
12 They Believe Every Stereotype

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

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

13 They're a Rock Elitist

This list in a nutshell.

Should be higher - B1ueNew

Hypocrite Land - 445956

14 They Support 6ix9ine

6ix9ine is a pedophile with a habit of saying the N word, and he made some of the worst songs ever. How anyone likes him is a mystery that I don't want to know... - allamassal

So all of my classmates

6ix9ine is a pedophile. So does his fans. - MChkflaguard_Yt

All he does is yell in his songs lol ew

15 They Like K-Pop

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 just hope these mindless retards with sub-zero IQ gets rounded up, tortured I gulag, and die from it. Kpop is dumb, so are its fans. - MChkflaguard_Yt

16 They Think Pop Requires No Talent
17 They Think Edm is Not "Real Music"

Petit biscuit? Of course true music.
But then you have Skrillex's Bangarang. - MChkflaguard_Yt

If you listen to the right artist. - XxembermasterxX

18 They Listen to Mainstream

Everybody does, but that doesn't mean they like it. - XxembermasterxX

19 They Think Metal is Just Screaming

How dumb can people be? - Userguy44

Screming is not a genre... logic please? - MChkflaguard_Yt

20 They Have a "Coffee House" Music Taste
