Default Things You Hate in Music

Be they something major you hate about it or some small, near-pointless thing that annoys you to no end, let off some steam here.

Biggest one for me is people who have their chorus far longer than the verses themselves, or only have twenty second verses and then lots of cuts to the chorus. I'm specifically looking at Roll Deep, who does both... and anybody else who does it.

Also, personal opinion is that Autotune does have its uses for some genres, but it does not belong in pop in the slightest, as pop should showcase vocal talent rather than voice editting to fame; and there needs to be a damn good rap for it to be pulled off in that genre, otherwise just get a good vocalist for the chorus/bridge. A collab isn't that hard. Autotune does have its uses in stuff like, say, most techno genres, so I'm not completely against it.

The lyrics is most rap songs are just utter crap.

They don't even make any sense most of the time.

I'm going to have to agree with Chaos Control.

Um.... Well.... It's really annoying when people swear in song, especially when there's no need. And usually there isn't. :P

Also, this isn't really music's fault, but you know those guys who play like rap/hip-hop music reeeeaaaallly loudly with the base turned waaaaaay up with the windows rolled down on their car? It's so annoying. >(

Yeah!! So I did that... except for I was blasting Megadeath... in Compton (da hoooood).
My, did I get a lot of stares O-O
But sometimes I hate pig-squeals, which is strange considering that German deathcore is in my top three for favorite genres :/

i agree and disagree. some pop songs, not necessarily only american music, have a techno-like sound in which autotune is alright. but in no way should autotune take up any more than 1/5 of a song.

but then again, when has techno ever included that many vocals. :/

You're listening to the wrong kind of rap/most of mainstream rap. Underground or early rappers are much better.

Autotune is only good if it makes sense in the song

i.e. T-Pain lol

I tend to get annoyed about people's attitudes towards music more than things IN music. I've been heckled a couple of times- though admittedly the last one was only 'IT'S WAYNE'S WORLD, WAYNE'S WORLD' being shouted at me- but my good friend lives in a town that's severely horrendous in terms of acceptance, and as he has long hair and a denim jacket, other teenagers actually spit at him.

I'm having to think hard about actual things I hate, as I listen to NOTHING I dislike. If the radio is on, my headphones will be on, simple as that. However I've just thought of one thing... you know that thing that every song played on the radio now has? It's like a rhythm that sounds like a clap. Like boom-clap-boom-clap. EVERY SONG HAS IT. IT'S SO CONFUSING.

Autotuning is also very annoying and warbly (ooOoOaaHAhahaahAHahooOoooOoOoooguuuuurrrlll), though it's fun to try to imagine what the singer ACTUALLY sounds like. :P People are apparently very quick to settle with **** stuff nowadays.

I think Rap irritates me because the stuff I hear is just a constant onslaught of words. I literally end up saying 'oh my god, turn it off!' because it makes me grind my teeth. Saying that, it's the same for very long guitar solos that are completely mental. An example of that is here, at the start of the song, although I absolutely adore that band. The intro is, admittedly, dreadful. The rest of the song is great. ♥

I also hate excessive swearing in songs. To me, swear words have lost a lot of their "shock value," and nowadays you hear them so often that they're meaningless. If they're occasionally used with reason and meaning to express frustration and anger, then its understandable, but if they're dropping the F bomb constantly in a song for no bloody reason, I just want to shut it off. I'd rather hear a baby whining.

On another note, I listen to a lot of techno/trance, and one of the things that's a major turnoff for me with that genre are the loud, high-pitched, squeaky synthesizer sounds they sometimes use for some of those songs. I also hate techno songs that seem to take FOREVER to get going and hit that "climax" where the tempo shoots up and really gets the pace of the song moving (I prefer fast-paced songs to begin with, but I have patience for songs that have a brief "warm up" period). And yes, there are many techno songs that never even get to that point, and just seem to be a slow and endless repetition of repeated beats and subtle sounds.

Also, I would like to know where and how slapping anime pictures on techno and trance songs for YouTube song videos got started. I don't hate it, but you see it everywhere. :P

I can't stand most metal and screaming.

Other than that nothing really bugs me (except willow smith but that's a different story)
