Top 10 Worst Things to Say to Make When Defending a Music Artist

Arguments to defend any music artist that are horrible. I don't support any of these arguments and I'm just criticizing the arguments not any particular person.

The Top Ten

1 You're horrible for hating this artist!

Calling someone horrible for hating a music artist isn't only a bad argument it's terrible logic to. People are entitled to their opinions regardless if you agree with them or not. - SomePersonYouHate

This is a really good list!

2 Die for hating someone that I like!

What? Just because someone hates a music artist you like doesn't mean you need to wish for them to die. - TheFourthWorld

Bad mentality and logic for anyone to make this argument. - SomePersonYouHate

Mostly elitists do this.Especially the metal elitists on this site.-LitSavage

There's more than just metal elitists there's elitists of all genres and things beyond music that can be found on this site. - SomePersonYouHate

3 I hate you!

Preteen girls make this argument most of the time and it's not really that much of a argument let alone a good argument. - SomePersonYouHate

Lol I said I hate Logan Paul and my “friend” screamed. LOGAN IS AMAZING AND I HATE YOU FOREVER. LOGANG FOR LIFE

proves his fans maturity...

4 You're dumb for hating a artist I like!

Like other items this is a pathetic as hell argument to make. - SomePersonYouHate

This sounds so dumb... - B0S5J4M3S

5 How dare you hate this artist!

Basically a pointless argument made by fanboys of certain artists that can't handle one negative opinion being said about their beloved artist. - SomePersonYouHate

Everyone has their own tastes and opinions. You shouldn't tell anyone what to like or what not to. - TheFourthWorld

I used to say this in December 2017.

6 You suck because you hate this artist!

Mainly preteens and angry fanboys of certain artist make this kind of argument and when they do it's just cringe inducing. - SomePersonYouHate

7 Well... they're better than you!

Did your brain malfunction or something? - SomePersonYouHate

8 You have no taste if you hate this artist!

No I still have a taste it's just different than yours. - SomePersonYouHate

9 I'd like to see you do better and try making your own music!

First off the person making this argument can't do better and secondly why make a argument that's not only stupid but logically is wrong. - SomePersonYouHate

10 I love this artist so you can't criticize them!

Not only a invalid argument but a pointless one to make at that. - SomePersonYouHate

The Contenders

11 Their music saved my life!

Hard Alternative bands like Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Dace and Evanescence are the biggest victims to this trope. And it isn't limited to Punk and Emo bands either like My Chemical Romance, Paramore and Green Day either.

Don't get me wrong, the bands I've listed, I absolutely love, respect and enjoy. And I do feel happy that they inspire fans. But saying that they "Saved your Life" is just not appropriate. These bands make music and if possible, they do it to inspire, but it doesn't excuse much. I mean, Chester Bennington inspired a lot with his emotional lyrics, and I can see why people look up to him. Benjamin Burnley and Adam Gontier also followed down the line, making music about struggles and overcoming them. That's great, but their intentions aren't "To save someone's life", not that I'm trying to make these singers out as selfish. The listeners and fans also have to make a decision to choose to live life. And lastly, this quote has become a joke trend of ...more - CrimsonShark

I wrote a song about how wrong this is.

12 I bet they make more money than you!

My god this damn argument is so old... - SomePersonYouHate

13 Their music defines me!
14 Everything they make is gold!

Just because someone made something you like doesn't mean you have to defend everything else he/she made. - DarkMatter1997
