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

I don't like of these genres. I see why he puts this at first place. - Userguy44

2 They Call Music with Real Instruments "Outdated"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

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 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

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 They Like Jacob Sartorius
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

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

Teenager girls. Enough said. - Userguy44

Most of the better stuff comes from 2000s and before. 2010s pop is 99% crap, and the good 1% of it is completely overshadowed and brutally murdered. - 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

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're a Rock Elitist

This list in a nutshell.

Should be higher - B1ueNew

Hypocrite Land - 445956

13 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

14 They Like K-Pop

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

15 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

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

16 They Think Metal is Just Screaming

How dumb can people be? - Userguy44

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

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

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

19 They Have a "Coffee House" Music Taste
