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

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

Coming from someone that made a similar kind of list and suffered intense backlack, this list is pretty close minded in a lot of ways... - SomePersonYouHate

For EDM it depends.There are some good genres like Drum&Bass,Hardstyle and Dubstep(Except for the Skrillex crap) but there's also a ton of trash artists in genres like House and Trap.Rap/Hip Hop is great if you listen to old school stuff like Tupac,Eminem(His old stuff is old school his new stuff is decent but his older stuff is better) and KRS KRS One or Underground Rap and Hip Hop like Immortal Technique and Hospin(I know they're very well know in the underground hip hop scene but I just started getting into the genre) but there's still some good recent artists like Kendrick Lamar and XXXTentacion(Meh I sorta like his music) and for Pop I like the Indie Pop stuff.I usually listen to Electro-Industrial,Industrial Metal,Underground Hip Hop,Alternative Metal and Drum&Bass so yeah I listen to a lot of Electronic,Rock/Metal and Rap.-DarkBoi-X

2 They Call Music with Real Instruments "Outdated"

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

5 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.

6 Their Favorite Genre is Trap Rap
7 They Like Jacob Sartorius
8 They Think Anything Made Before the 2010s is "Outdated"
9 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

Kendrick Lamar is real music. Joey Bada$$ is real music. Logic is real music. J. Cole is real music. - 445956

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

Hypocrite Land - 445956

14 They Support 6ix9ine
15 They Think Metal is Just Screaming
