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

I do this my family sometimes thinks that some songs listen to are garbage and some on this one radio are absolutely bad or bad words

I listen to pop and rap. I don't really care if people hate my music taste. I just don't really like heavy metal to be honest. - Luckys

I listen to EDM (favorite genre besides metal). True EDM though. Not the absolutely crummy mainstream. - PhoenixAura81

And not all of those are bad. - Userguy44

How are real instruments outdated? - Userguy44

I like music with real instruments. - CharismaticKat

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

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

4 They Like Jacob Sartorius

I didn't know this was possible. Jk.
But seriously. He's that bad. - Misfire

No one likes him - CharismaticKat

I agree


5 They Think Twenty One Pilots is Rock

21 Pilots is good, but they're not rock. - KalloFox34

They're not rock. They're a mix of a bunch of different genres. - CharismaticKat

I never thought they were rock. - allamassal

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

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

I like it but it's not my favorite genre. - CharismaticKat

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

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

Hell naw, pop sucks. - CharismaticKat

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

Teenager girls. Enough said. - Userguy44

9 They Think Anything Made Before the 2010s is "Outdated"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 Support 6ix9ine

I don't support his actions. The guy's an idiot and who needs to go back to school and learn some respect. - CharismaticKat

He should die already. - XxembermasterxX

So all of my classmates

All he does is yell in his songs lol ew

12 They Think Scene Bands are Metal

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

13 They Believe Every Stereotype

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

14 They're a Rock Elitist

This list in a nutshell.

Should be higher - B1ueNew

Hypocrite Land - 445956

No, because Rock is the best genre. Much better than rap (or should I say, crap) - KalloFox34

15 They Think Metal is Just Screaming

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_Yt

16 They Think Your Music Taste is Bad

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

Music is art and art is subjective. What’s the point in hating other people’s tastes? Just let them listen to what they like and you can listen to what you like

17 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

18 They Have a "Coffee House" Music Taste


What does that mean? - KalloFox34

19 They Listen to Mainstream

Not every mainstream music is bad though. - Misfire

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

20 They Think Pop Requires No Talent

Why is that bad taste? How you guys HEARD 2010s pop music? The singers of these terrible songs are braindead! - KalloFox34

21 They Think Edm is Not "Real Music"

If you listen to the right artist. - XxembermasterxX

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

Tiësto, Deadmau5, Daft Punk, Benny Benassi, literally anything S Y N T H W A V E: godly EDM that is totally real music
All those poser DJs like the Chainsmokers and Marshmello: trash that I can't consider true EDM - PhoenixAura81

22 They Think Rap Music is Real Music

Hate me all you want, but there is nothing wrong with liking rap, and this is coming from a rap hater. - XxembermasterxX

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

23 They Like Grindcore

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

24 They think Chris Brown is real R&B
25 They Call Anything Before 2010 "Old"

What if they call anything before 2018 old? - Alkadikce

26 They always talk about how songs are "bangers"
27 They Do Not Care for Any Intellectual Aspect
28 They Listen to Drake

Pretty much every guy in my grade at my 6th and 8th grade school. - PhoenixAura81

29 They Claim 2 Chainz, Lil Wanye, XXXTentacion, Kodak Black, Tyga, and 6ix9ine are Good Rappers.
