View Full Version : Music you absolutely loathe
03-03-2002, 11:56 AM
Well, we've had every other kind of music thread so i thought maybe it was time for this one.
I absolutely loathe country and western both the old style "my dog is dead" morose stuff and the new up tempo stuff by the likes of Billy ray cirus(sp?) It just makes me mad a s hell and it's probably the "come on everybody!" quality of it. I hate people trying to jolly me along and also hate music that insists you have a good time.
I hate compilation albums touted as the very best of ......... They usually contain the worst examples aof crass commercialism going and the idea that one might not have the intelligence to choose for oneself the music that spins on the stereo and need to have it chosen by someone else is just incredibly annoying to me. The best of? Who's best of? Not mine.
I hate heavy metal 'music' with screaming guitars and someone screeching incomprehensible words over the top. I used to like rock music. Way back in the early seventies I was quite partial to Led Zeppelin and Black sabbath, Early Queen was good for a laugh. The Who. But this heavy metal is just decibel abuse to me.
I hate anything put out by fakers. A lot of this supposed college boy rock we get coming over from the states just drives me nuts. They put themselves over as these hip 'dudes' but in reality they're just mommies boys from rich families without a frelling clue.
urban 'street' music is just someone with a beat box and a rhyming dictionary droning on and on over the top of a sample of music from someone who actually has talent. rap was interesting back in the Grand master flash days but now it's just dull dull dull.
Garage music is just an excuse for eardrum bursting subsonic basslines and some sad arse warbling over the top and then some clown who can't sing or rap muttering something that makes no sense.
The influx of all these latin inspired tracks by the likes of Pink and Christina Aguilera and Britney. STOP ALREADY! we had enough of that with bloody Ricky Martin. The vibe is dead - move on... :rolleyes:
Kids who release pop songs. I'm talking pre-teens here. I don't really want to go too deep into my own private hell but suffice to say this is one growing area of pop that should be destroyed forthwith.
Brass bands and bagpipes are just dreadful. Not only are they ear splittingly piercing but the tunes are so mangled up and unrecognisable that there's really little point in attempting to listen. Bad bad stuff.
Anyway that's a start on my loathes, what's yours? :D
03-03-2002, 12:06 PM
I hate most rap, really the songs that are absolute garbage, they don't sound good, the lyrics are insanely dumb (Big Pimpin'...urgh YAY! :rolleyes: )
But there is some good rap...very little though
Country for the most part makes me sick...my grandma always listened to it in her old smokey car...so that's what comes to mind :)
Hmm...the white rap/rock. It's a bunch of pointless yelling in my opinion. :p
And any of the little kids that sing (Aaron Carter, Little Bow Wow)...one word: Ugh.
So see? I'm still a groovy hepcat ;)

The Bues- Just plain depressing
New Metal- i.e Slipknot, Limp Bizkit Linkin Park, Pointless sreaming no tune and really the only people that listen to it are hormonal 12-15 year olds
Some Rap- Such as Ja Rule I just don't see a point to it he just wines and moans, I don't mind Eminem and D12 because it's little bit more upbeat and chearfull
U.K Garage- American R'n'B wannabes they think they're hard and they're songs are all about pretty much the same thing
Pop- Not all of it but you just can't beat a good pop song, Rovvie Williams, Dido, Will Young (Joke! But he is a very talented lad)
Hip Hop- It's O.K
Punk- Such as Blink 182, fantastic band, don't take themselves too seriously, don't try to inflict there music onto people that don't want to listen to it, generally a very tallented band
Indie- Such as Stereophonics and Travis
03-03-2002, 02:13 PM
Jargo might not like METAL, but that's okay. That much true power can be frightening(right Howdy?).
Anyways, I can't stand slow jam, don't like the aforementioned "new punk" music by momma's boys, can't stand any music with that "curtain of twinkling drops" sound in it (think every boy band), don't like really any rap (although tone loc and body count were all right) and hate country as well.
I'm really surprised no-one mentioned Celtic music, especially the big stagey kind(a la riverdance). The rest of the world must think we all love that drek up here, but the harsh reality is that we loathe it so much we export it to the rest of the world.
The blues, too, suffer from too many tunes with the exact same riff, instrumentation, arrangement, and lyrical tone, so that gets a vote.
And to those who don't like Metal.........WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
03-03-2002, 04:43 PM
I hate loud and angry music that has no purpose. I can handle loud and angry if it has something behind it. Most of the stuff that's out now is plain posturing.
I'm getting tired of these "Adult Alternative" bands like The Calling, Creed and things like that. They all sound like they started out as Dave Matthews wannabes, lost direction and said... hey let's go "paint-by-numbers".
I can't stand MOST rap. There is so little creativity and there is no climax to those songs. They just lay there like a bored hooker for the 4 minutes they run. Terribly boring. Repetitive.
I can't stand pretentious pop either. I love pop music, but I hate it when the artist goes all "arty". You're a pop musician. You usually have about enough talent to do that. Don't push it!

First I have to agree about the pop music, in England we have a group called a1 who used to just dance about and mime, but now they pretend to play there own intruments and they talk like there going to be around for ever and they think theyre bigger than they actually are. And secondly "Angry and Loud" where the exact words I was looking for, theres just no need for it.
03-03-2002, 08:21 PM
Aww, isn't this cute? It's the "look at me show how old I actually am" thread. ;)
Oh, and I can't stand that Mexican polka-sounding stuff, it's just annoying as crap. I don't know what it's called, but I just hate it.

03-03-2002, 09:36 PM
Country, Rap, Hair Bands, R&B, Punk-pop (i.e. Blink 182, Sum 41, or any other inane sell-out who has a number after their name), Rock-rap (which looks more and more to be a thing of the past), boy bands, pop princesses...oh, how I hate it all.
03-03-2002, 10:13 PM
Although I will most likely be the only one to do so, I must come to the defense of country music. It is probably one of my favorite types of music and I have been listening to it almost exclusively for the past several weeks. I also really love bluegrass music, for its energy and overall toe-tapping qualities
Music I really hate: rap, r&b, hip-hop, jazz and mariachi music (the word you were looking for JT). Most modern rock and heavy metal also tends to turn my stomach.
03-03-2002, 10:59 PM
I can't say I hate any specific style or genre of music, because everyonce in a while there are a few gems you find here or there.
I really don't like commercial pop though, Nsync, Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears clones, etc... They don't write their own stuff, and are about as talented as a sackfull fo door knobs.
03-04-2002, 12:03 AM
I hate death metal or heavy metal as they are both called. I never could understand why people listened to someone scream and grunt. Some of the guitar stuff can actually be pretty cool to listen to though. I only have a slight liking of heavy metal because a couple of my friends are in a heavy metal band and they actually do some amazing instumentation work, but the growling has got to go.
Rap. This is the worst form of music IMHO. How this is considered music is beyond me. All of it sounds the same to me with that same beat in the background all the time. And "rappers" don't even sing. They basically just talk. Anyone can do that. Heck give me a topic and I could probably improvise a whole rap song off the top of my head. It doesn't take talent for this so called "music".
The new Pop scene. If I have to hear anything else by Backstreet Boys, N'SYNC, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore, Jessica Simpson, etc... I'm going to explode. These have to be some of the most talentless people in the music industry. There used to be a time when the word "musician" meant someone that wrote their own songs, sang their own lyrics, and played their own instruments. Nowadays it is all about "I'll lipsync to a song that I recorded that was actually written by someone else while I dance wearing sexy revealing clothing which will make all the teenagers go crazy." Please. Give me a break. This was apparently disappointing as recently at the Grammy's when great classic singers and songwriters such as Billy Joel and Tony Bennet got shut out of their category to some stupid Pop group. Pathetic. Billy Joel and Tony Bennet could kick their @$$ anyday of the week. I hope this pop scene goes away quickly and so do all of these pop people.
03-04-2002, 08:33 AM
I usually stay out of these music threads because I don't listen to "one" type of music. And I don't hate "one" type of music. it's more of a song by song thing. As soon as I say "Man, I HATE Eminem or N*Sync" then they put out something that makes me go "Well, that's actually fairly decent." So I listen to individual stuff and decide based on that. There's no artist that makes me want to run out and buy every single thing they've done. And there's none that make me want to avoid them forever. Generally I don't like rap and heavy metal, but there is always exceptions.
i'm with rollo. i hate prejudice and tend to stay open whenever i'm introduced to another genre or artist i haven't heard of before. humility is important.
however, despite my open attitude, there have nevertheless been cases where a genre has been given so many chances that i finally have had to (temporarily) dismiss it.
one of them being rap - as i see most of you guys dislike as well. really, i wouldn't even call it music. it's basically just a place for "social comment", backed up by a steady beat. it's more like those choruses in greek tragedies, in fact. you can see how desperate they are when they try to incorporate classical refrains into their songs - an effort to "musicify" the rap genre, no doubt.
as for country, i really like "folk music" or socalled americana in its purest sense (with banjos and stuff). but i don't really like the sleek and pointless wailing of contemporary guys like billy ray and garth brooks - or, god forbid: alan williams!
i like a lot of heavy metal, but - as i said in that "favourite" thread - not the more extreme speed-screamin' stuff. i'm more into things like the groovy and dark rammstein.
i find modern r'n'b totally grating. seems like a competition in who's able to do the most flurries with the voice. i like r'n'b in the original sense of the word, though - rhythm and blues - which is funky stuff.
boybands are boring and naīve.
some of the indie stuff is pretty grating as well (the cure etc.). seems like minor variations on one single note.

Actually... Nsync and BSB DO write their own stuff... that's why it's so lousy!!!
03-04-2002, 12:23 PM
o boy, here's a fun topic :evil::
current, commercially-viable genres: guitar-based college rock (whether it's obnoxious like chili peppers or wimpy like alanis), jazz (david sanborn? kenny g? whoops, the latter's also too easy a target, a la carrot top :p ), country and r&b, all of which are a shell of their former selves (though smash mouth had a coupla catchy tunes :p ). i watch letterman and i can count on one hand the number of overhyped critical darlings (read: dave matthews :p ) he's had on in the last decade that Didn't put me to sleep :zzz: these aren't so much musics as Products, lifestyle accessories; the aural equivalents of bedbath&beyond :p
overpackaged, over-indulged baby-boomer nostalgia: righteous brothers, big chill soundtracks, james taylor, certain beatles :p
dreary, workin-class dirtball rock (bob seger, loverboy, eddie money, lynyrd skynrd except "sweet home alabama", etc.): reverse pretension w/out the style :p
musicals, & pop divas who "retire" every other week: flamers should stick to da smokin howse music & opera, and Ditch broadway & streisand :rolleyes:
industrial & metal: sulking adolescent abrasiveness never held lasting appeal for me, and these offer nuthin But :p
actually, now that it's progressin beyond mere lecturin & posturin set to a beat, rap's gettin more interestin the last coupla years, cuz now it's backed by hypnotic chords, textures, referential samples & a sometimes-incisive, sometimes-burlesque, always-engaging sense of humor (all of which de la soul did a decade ago, but it didn't catch on back then). i still can't fathom anyone fallin for white-boy pretenders though: eminem is the vanilla ice of our day, only he's a homely little twerp instead of hunky-
np: beat farmers, "king of sleaze"
03-04-2002, 12:36 PM
I dislike the Cranberries. Nothing against them personally, I just don't like their music. I also hate rap. I'm sorry, it's not rap, its noise.
03-04-2002, 12:41 PM
My prejudices below :D
-Andrew Lloyd Webber-type Musical songs.
actually it's probably easier to say that I like only deep house/jazzy, funky type house music
-Robbie Williams (deserves a mention for being a royal tosser)
-most guitar music (á la Oasis, Blur, Pulp, Suede et al )
-New Wave/ 80s chart music (with the exception of some early Culture Club)
p.s - I stand out in this list as a passionate lover (and producer) of RnB (contemp and original), Soul and Rap. Not wanting to get into a semantics argument (but.......) ;) I find it funny that Hip Hop is being classed as a music style...? It's a culture, encompassing fashion, tag art, rap etc.

I know what you're talking about, JT. It's one of the few things I don't miss about moving from SoCal.
What I really hate:
Anything recommended by Oprah:eek: :eek: :eek: :dead:
03-04-2002, 03:30 PM
Sorry BigBarada, but I am not a fan of the country or bluegrass music.
I do not hate it, but when I think of country music I get depressed and often down.
However I am an open minded person and anyone who likes the music is OK with me.
03-04-2002, 03:51 PM
Hmmm...when I said country in my post, what I meant was new-style country, a'la Shania Twain and Garth Brooks. I'll listen to Willie Nelson and the O Brother soundtrack is the best non-orchestral release of that year, in my opinion.
03-04-2002, 04:06 PM
Even though my heart is filled with Metal, doesn't mean that I could ever judge anyone based on their musical preferences. Nothing wrong with a closed mind, just so long as you're aware of it, and it was you who locked it shut in the first place!!
Oh yeah, and I must agree with everyone who spoke out against the "posturing" of bands like Korn and Creed.
That's the rub for me, I guess, the only kind of music I really don't like (and I can play and produce music, so I'm not just talkin through my platter here) is stuff that just doesn't have anything "to" it.
And if that's what you like, that's cool, at least I know you don't have yer eyes on my signed Motorhead CD, or Hammerfall collection, or my Iron Maiden T shirt.
Sorry, just wanted to be sure everyone here knew, I'm crazy with FUN, not angst or hate.
Music should make you feel how you like to feel, and I like jumping around my house going "wooooo".
I don't like rap, most country, bluegrass, hip-hop, boy band kind of music, pop and most of all I HATE SATANIC MUSIC!!!
And I agree with mabudon, I like metal.

What I'm talking about is, I think, called "Tejano". It's often synonymous with Selina (the singer who was gunned down just as she was approaching real stardom here in the US, but Selina's music seems more creative and lively and less tied down to polka than the tejano you hear around here these days (MC, I totally sympathize with that sentiment ;)).
03-04-2002, 11:36 PM
Well, here's two MORE words: Nelly Furtado :mad:........she's the definition of "sucks".
Let's see.......that moron Missy Elliot. Ok, her talent is what? Randomly babbling words during a song? She's terrible.
Never liked rap, but to say it takes no talent is a strong statement.
Same with country.....never listen to it, but I can acknowledge some talented artists.
Now, rock music is reeeeeally going through bad times. I mean, who vibes on Alien Ant Farm, 3 Doors Down, or Lit? Who are the people that like that crap?.....and I'm sick of hearing about your "father". "Father" this....."where were you, Father" that.....like that bald fat idiot Aaron Lewis (from Staind).
....and as for Mexican music......IT BLOWS. It's like a freakin' carnival. Music with an accordion is destined to be lame anyway. It's like the words are too long for the song.....they cram 80 words into a verse. They need to find a style of music that actually fits their rather lenghty language.
.....and if I ever meet that lanky nerd from Coldplay.....*smack*! That hide in a corner, fetal position whiney "I'm scared" music has been worn out by Toad the Spocket and Matchbox 20.
There's more, I'm sure....but I'm tired and obviously in a bad mood...so........:dead:

this seems like the right thread to post this news clip....
Russell Crowe's album sells 156 copies after release (http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_545798.html?menu=news.latestheadlines)

I never was a fan of rap and some of those songs that have been redone in rap. I like most of the music of rap until the person starts rapping or hip-hopping.
Some of the hard rock that you can't understand what the heck they are saying. Once again the music is good,but the singer,if you can call it that,starts screaming and thats all you hear. To me a lot of todays rock is starting to sound alike no matter what band is playing.

Ok, I'm partial to Blink-182 and Linkin Park but they should never ever ever be in the same sentence as "punk" or "metal"
Music I loathe:
R&B: Destiny's Child, TLC, and the like. Barf barf barf vomit vomit vomit!
"Gangsta" Rap/Hip Hop: Ego-maniacal dumbasses who gabber on about b!tches, h0es, pimpin', drugs, etc. Moronic.
Boy Bands: I don't have enough space to write about this.
Teen Queens: See above
Music I like:
Alternative: Alternative is a pretty wide category, and I like a wide portion of it.
Classic Rock: the Beatles, Queen, etc.
Danny Elfman: A whole category of his own
Humor/Parody/Dementia: Like WEIRD AL! He doesn't bother with those lovey relationshippy songs, he sings about food, tv, and Star Wars!
03-19-2002, 10:16 PM
Well, I'll do a split list (I am the master of lists!)
I do not like any music that feels profanity is "necessary" to get its message across.
The "old" country music was annoying...
But there are some songs I really have a hard time listening to (although I can't say I hate them), for various reasons, and they are:
"Sara" by Starship
"Cherish" by Kool & the Gang
"Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman
"Melanie" by Weird Al Yankovic (I really have no idea why!)
03-20-2002, 12:22 AM
Hmmm, well Bel-Cam....while I probably deserve a bat to the head for this.....I think the acoustic lick in "Fast Car" is kind of cool.....even years ago when it first came out. I'm talking about the riff during the verses.....the rest of the tune, including Buckwheat herself, is :o *yaaaaaaaawn*

i hate Kid Rock too, what do you call him? sort of hillbilly rap or something.
and some punk music is just bloody horrible. I like a lot of it but a whole buttload of it just sucks.
03-21-2002, 11:38 PM
I believe the Kid Rock descriptive word you're looking for is "sucks".
03-22-2002, 11:05 PM
I thought Kid Rock was Trailer Trash Rap
03-23-2002, 10:58 AM
looks like I'm the only one here who listenes to rap, hip-hop, r'n'b
03-23-2002, 11:05 AM
No you aren't, so take solace in my post earlier :)
03-23-2002, 11:11 AM
yeah you're right must've overlooked that one
it's really true that hip-hop is not only a music style but almost "a way of living"
03-23-2002, 02:54 PM
I don't think it really matters to the masses really, but to be anal about it, "rap" is the music, Hip Hop's the culture. I like the 'way of life' term you used! :) So many words, phrases and terms evolve over usage and this's what's happened with HH, so no harm I suppose.
Hip hop is about finding and expressing your individuality, so I guess - as a minority on this thread - we're doing pretty well, 187- Maul :D

I really can't explain it, but the Dave Matthews Band really drives me batty! So much so that if I met Dave in person, I would seriously consider taking one of his overrated, godawful CDs, flip the disc vertically, stick it between his teeth and gums and have him bite down really hard. :crazed: Every girl that I am acquainted with thinks that he is God's gift to music when most of us guys really know that he is one giant bag of elephant fecal matter. ;)
03-24-2002, 08:56 PM
I just picked up Calibretto 13's new CD, and I must say it is amazing. I'd reccomend picking it up, but I doubt any of you ever heard of the band, and you wouldn't be able to find the cd anyway.
Also, some great new albums I've heard you should check out:
Supertones new live album
Bad Religion: Process of Belief
Aquabats had a new album a few months back, awesome
Mad Caddy's new one rocks too
03-25-2002, 05:27 PM
Apparently Wolfwood319 is mistaken, about a great... many... things. This is a "loathe" thread, not a "love" one. Therefore, I will have to edit his post to read:
I just picked up Calibretto 13's new CD, and I must say it is pathetic. I'd never even consider reccomend picking it up, but I doubt any of you ever heard of the band, and you wouldn't be able to find the cd anyway.
Also, some terrible new albums I've heard you should nevercheck out:
Supertones new live album
Bad Religion: Process of Belief
Aquabats had a new album a few months back, awful
Mad Caddy's new one stinks too
Sorry. Thems the rules. ;)
Besides, I believe if you do soem searching in this very section, WW319, you'll find a good music thread! :)

. . . so that i can know exactly which of my goats you're tryina get :D
(I like only deep house/jazzy, funky type house music)
-New Wave/ 80s chart music (with the exception of some early Culture Club? ewwwww, they sucked then, he sucks now :p )
np: romeo void, "never say never"
04-08-2002, 04:52 PM
Almost all music from the early 90's through now. Man does the music SUCK now days. Whatever happened??? Today's music just flat out sucks. :dead: :rolleyes: :frus:
