Their Songs Are Cheesy
EXACTLY WHY IS THIS NOT HIGHER ON THE LIST? I used to hate them because a lot of their fans pissed me off, then I grew up a little and realized they're not THAT bad.
I realized that it was just most of their fans that put me off from listening to them and I decided to give them a chance. So I listened to drag me down and I really really regret that. I wish they would sing an actual meaningful song instead of some like that, not to mention almost ALL of their songs are about some girl. Don't even get be started on BEST SONG EVER, I think it was opposite word day when they came up with that song because it should be WORST SONG EVER. Not hating, by the way stating my opinion.
This is just, this is just SO TRUE. Why are every single on of their songs about girls? Seriously? There are more meaningful things in life than dating. Love is an important part, but, honestly? I think I could name more important things to write about than only love. Their songs also could make someone feel self conscious. Honestly, they talk about beautiful girls, long hair and all those cliche things. If they actually write their own songs, I'm not really sure what they think is most important in their life.
Yep. There are no kids at my school who like One Direction. I don't even see the appeal. I mean, everyone on the internet gushes and goes on and on about how "hot" they are, but I seriously don't find any of them attractive. Sure, I'm not into guys, but I can rate guys like a lot of their fan base has stooped to. I've been told to "evaporate" and had cancer wished upon me because I politely voiced my opinion on the band. I wasn't criticizing them like I am now, I just said I didn't like their music. But honestly, I'm tired of the angsty pmsing fangirls. Their fanbase is the most vicious that I have ever seen, and I think it's worse than the belibers. And no, don't say, "Oh, but other fangirls do the same," because they don't. Even if there was a fan base as vicious as the 1D one, that doesn't justify your actions. You fangirls say that "they saves your lives", which is great, but if they really did save your lives, why are you telling other people to kill themselves? My best friend ...more
They were lucky to actually GET famous in my opinion. They got lucky with "That's What Makes You Beautiful" song (or whatever it's called, it's still terrible and cheesy nonetheless). I think that One Direction write their songs about girls because they know how mindless their fanbase is, and that they can manipulate them into loving them purely because they're attractive (in their fanbase's eyes, anyway) and they're singing about girls.

They always make songs for girls, their biggest fanbase. Don't they have any other thing on their mind, I guess they probably know they won't sell if they started to write things that guys and people on general can relate to. They know that they are only good until they are satisfying their brainless fangirls. Even YouTube artists write better and sing better songs. They don't deserve their fame and are not talented at all.
This is the reason why the world says that teenage girls are easily manipulative. okay, even if One D makes a mistake in their live performance (not even surprised) their fan base doesn't even care and they go on defending them like they're supposed to... The world will lose it if one D continues to do whatever it is they are doing! And lets not get started on KEVIN!
Their songs are like those national anthems which will never go wrong, has no substances or actual inspiration. Zayn made a smart move by leaving, seriously, they really need to grow up and explore or expose themselves according to their own life experience, not just the same damn thing every single album.
I have literally listened to every single song in their first 2 albums. None of the song lyrics is meaningful or even descriptive. I couldn't picture anything from lyrics. The lyrics are absolute crap!
Completely a personal opinion! I think the Beatles sound like bagpipes dueling an accordion during a car wreck. so what. they should never be allowed back on the radio because I'd rather listen to fingernails on a chalkboard?
No one is their right mind would appreciate work even after they realize its stole. doesn't it mean that they lack originality? And yes the reason many dislike them is the fact that they encourage their fan base to go berserk. real music is from the heart and that heals the world and not that which guides you to fame. What is so good about them. answer me logically and we'll see if we can approve of your insanity!
Their songs are usually about love and being young. There's nothing wrong there. There are ton's of artists that write about the same stuff. Stop being a hypocrite. AT LEAST THEY CAN SING, unlike other artists that are lip syncing.
They're songs are better than those that play on the radio. They write with passion, not because some mindless rhythm formed in their head and they need to add words to it
Their songs aren't even cheesy. You're probably only thinking of their old music and saying it because it was pop. They're more rock now kind of and their music has meaning. The songs reminding their fans to be who they are and not to worry, that they are perfect how they are, to own up to their mistakes, and to live while you can. P.S.- to all of you saying their songs are all about girls that's quite actually a lie. Two of the members are forced to stay in the closet about their sexuality because of their controlling Managment.
Cliched lyrics about being teenaged, being young, love, etc. (e.G. "Live While We're Young", "Best Song Ever"). And fans act like they are the first to sing about someone being "beautiful." Well Directioners, meet Joe Cocker ("You Are So Beautiful")
Not only that but song titles are perhaps rip-offs of other popular songs:
"Summer Love" - song by Justin Timberlake
"Nobody Compares" = "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor
They are so unoriginal it's pathetic. You people fell for it when you thought that Simon Cowell is "honest" and knows all about music.
I'd ask the band as well as their fans to listen to 'Eleanor Rigby' by the Beatles and it's heart wrenching complexity. THAT is what you call a song. And not what YOU think makes ME beautiful.
I even like few of Justin Bieber's and Backstreet Boys' songs a bit more than any of the One Direction songs'.
One direction is so so so so so so stupid and dumb
Their earlier music was indeed cheesy. However, now they are writing their own music and it is much better! People don't give them a chonce, but One Direction have matured a lot since What Makes You Beautiful and Best Song Ever. Their new album has songs like "Olivia" and "End Of The Day" which are excellent and well-crafted.
I don't agree with all you people that hate one direction they are not idiots they are the best thing that ever happened in the world they can write their own songs and they are not cheesy. I just don't agree with you people. So sorry you are just wrong. That is not polite and I don't agree with you ok
At least they can sing cause I'd love to see half of you write a good song.
It seems like EVERY song sounds THE same. Its always about a girl they love and all. I swear. Listen to their music. I have nothing else to even say.
What makes you beautiful gives me nightmares of how awful it is.
All of there songs are about girls. Can't they come up with a different music topic?
They are all bad songs. Its not even a question. Cheesy does not begin to describe them. What ever happened to emotional music.
