Music that really GRATES on you
« on: May 16, 2008, 07:50:56 PM »
We all have some kind of music that makes us reach for the radio's station selector, sometimes with an axe. Britney, german polka, something.

Me? I can't stand love songs. They remind me of what I haven't had or believed in, for too long.

I recommend 'I Hate Love Songs' by Gwar

And for me, currently, its Soulja Boy -_- had it stuck in my head a few weeks now and whenever I finally start to forget the radio has to play it.

Bad rap. Bad hip hop. That includes what's on most popular radio stations.

And female vocalists with pitch high voices. -____-

GIRL GROUPS. Happy pop songs. Ugh.

Anything repetitive that gets stuck in my head and will not come out no matter how many times I listen to something GOOD in a vain, desperate attempt to replace it.

I.E. Mmmbop or whatever the hell it is. I'm Blue with the totally incomprehensible lyrics.

Also, anything that has a really similar chord progression to another song, so that any time I hear it, I think of the other song and the two mix in my head. The only example I can think of right now is Drops of Jupiter by Train, which has a chord progression identical to Drift Away by Dobie Gray (and the million other groups that've covered it.)

And last, but not least, songs in which the singer alters the rules of grammar/pronunciation of a word just to make it fit the song/rhyme scheme. Best example I can think of at the moment is Paula Cole's song "I Don't Want To Wait" ... "Say a little prayer for I." *twitch* Wouldn't have been a bad song without that.

Anything in the country genre that has been made in the past 30 years, excepting Johnny Cash.

Techno.  Disco.  Gangsta rap (some hip-hop is great - like true poetry, but "I'm gonna drop it like it's hot suck on my balls bitch bang bang holla" doesn't do it for me).

Avant-garde 'experimental' music.

Noise.

I love the idea of artists pushing the envelope, but there is definitely a point where I need a bit of convention to smooth it all out. As much as I like the idea of it all ...

I just cannot get into it sometimes.

I really can't stand anything on the radio.

But I can sure as hell groove to anything that has something to do with the word "rave".

Oh I have to agree with the bunch who are saying girls with whiney voices.

That's why I could neverrrrrrr be a singer. *has a ridiculously high pitched voice*
BUT... I love r&b, well, r&b that actually sounds like r&b, like alicia keys. I love her raspy voice.
I hate pop. rap. Rap is evil. Rap... is impossible. And it's not good anymore. Poc is gone, biggie smalls is gone. etc etc. no good rappers. What's the point now?
I love jazz. But I'm mostly addicted to soundtracks. Especially video game soundtracks. Anything ny nobou uematsu and harry gregorson-williams rocks my socks hard. Shadow of the Collossus had awesome music. And Suteki da ne is one of my favorite songs ever.
Love japanese music. Hate japanese people trying to sing in english music (aka, Utada's Exodus).
Yesh. And rap.

Britney, Punk in all of its forms, and the most generic stuff they play at MTV...

That would be the blatant dislike list for me.

Power metal, nu metal, brit pop, and gangsta rap... and otherwise pretty much 90% of the popular shit they're playing on TV these days.

Anything that's overplayed on the radio. Anything that they overplay at the work satellite station. If I have to hear Mambo no. 5 ever again, I will hunt down the guy who wrote it and murder him with an axe.

Country, and most 'Scream' 'metal'.

I actually have rare country songs that don't make me pull my hair out.

In rap, the C is silent.  That said, Sturgeon's Law applies as well here as anywhere else.

I like a lot of pop stuff, tons of techno, metal, just about everything out there, but Country is an immediate NO.

And so help me, if I ever get a thermonuclear device and Rascal Flats goes to Houston...

It would be like hitting the lottery on Christmas.
