The Worst Music You'll Hear
« on: August 10, 2011, 11:47:49 PM »
Reading up on people's favourite music here's got me thinking just what is your worst? I'll admit I was inspired to make this topic after listening to some truly shockingly awful songs lately. Plus I figure it would be fun to share, whether or not you agree or disagree and maybe open your eyes. You think your choices are bad...

I'll start off my saying that some of the worst music out there is.....pretty much the popular music industry as it stands right now. I realise that's a massive generalisation but it's true for me. I turn on Radio 1 and I hear some really unimaginative garbage that makes me want to saw my ears off. For example, failed X-Factor contestant Cher Lloyd is kick starting her music career with a song called 'Swagger Jagger'. It's fucking awful but surprise, it looks like it's going to be No.1. I weep for humanity.



Or how about Duck Sauce? Perhaps the worst band name of all time coincidentally also makes some of the worst, repetitive, unimaginative songs available:

The worst song I have ever heard is ''Stop being a Dickhead'' by Kate Nash.

^ Song's actually kinda nice, mellow and a bit funky. But that goes into my little rant here:

Welcome to adulthood! :lol: I swear, this is something I've always heard people say about popular music for as far back as I can remember. Even I copped that attitude for a while back in the late '90s/early '00s with all the boybands and light rock pop groups of the time (many of whom I still can't stand). Then I realized "current" stuff will always seem inferior because you're constantly being blitzed by it now while we only remember the good stuff of yesteryear due to the crap of the past either being usually forgotten quickly or not bombarding us constantly anymore. I can totally picture today's "trash" being remembered fondly ten years from now once nostalgia kicks in.

Whenever a topic like this comes up anywhere I always fear it quickly devolving into a circlejerk over whatever act or trend happens to be hot right now or whatever artist/genre/style someone just happens to really not like--I can think of several widely-hated acts that I actually consider quite decent (or at least not completely horrible) and deserving of some praise, and conversely there are certain acts that I can picture getting praise around these parts but I personally can't stand at all. But I suppose that's just the subjective nature of music.

So I'll do my part in staving that off by focusing on obvious choices such as this:


And to balance things out, something from a long time ago:

Wasn't some of that single raising money for Japan though? I remember hearing something about it.

I think to me,I've always had taste. I liked Busted when they were around,I still like Busted. I'll admit I used to love Hear'say and the Allstars who I have now downgraded to only mild like  :lol:(the Allstars were on that Starstreet thing,that programme about the weird house) but I don't think I'm going to like Leona Lewis 10 years from now. I initially hated Alexandra Burke,especially after murdering Halleujah but then she stopped being a Leona Lewis clone and actually did something. SuBo I could see she had talent,I just found it so annoying how it was like everywhere!

The Crazy Frog wasn't that bad. It wasn't offensive,which is more than I can say for most things.

Talk about bipolar. There's examples of songs that switch from clean to screaming vocals in an interesting way that makes the song flow together. This is not one of them.

On that note, have you heard her newest song? Truly awful stuff. I guess musically shooting yourself in the face is one way of reinventing yourself

That's because all American music from about 97 forward is horrible with some exceptions.  I think that's why a lot of us listen to asian music.  In the 70s and 80s, there was actually a lot of quality music, but the music has deteriorated as has American culture in general since then.  Now is the time for Asian culture to come to the forefront in my opinion.  I tell everyone I can about Japanese music.  I think that a lot of people just don't know any better and don't have anything else to listen to other than trash like "Moves Like Jagger" or "Stronger", two of the worst songs in the history of mankind.

And this is exactly the kind of shitty attitude I was talking about regarding how ridiculous this topic is. A lot of great music I discovered over the years were actually made after '97 by American artists, including some of my favorite albums of all time (and GASP some of them are mainstream acts signed to major labels), and to simply dismiss everything so simply like this is beyond ignorant and full of hypernostalgic wankery. I can just as easily counter with the opposite argument, especially since a lot of stuff made before the '90s doesn't interest me much and Asians are just as susceptible as westerners to toss some stinkers out there (I can even argue a sense of hypocrisy considering how "American" a lot of Asian music sounds to me--similar formulas, different language).

If you honestly believe American music and culture is deteriorating, it's because your ability to pay attention has deteriorated, focusing only on what you hate (which I know is the point of this thread but come on now) or finding any excuse to blow off anything that just happened to be made/done after some random arbitrary date. The very definition of selection/confirmation bias and lazy "thinking".
