Your least favourite genres/sub-genres of music?

Pretty much every genre or sub-genre of music has something I like if I look hard enough, but there's types of music that I generally just don't like or cant' get into.

Reggae: I just can't get into reggae. Of the bigger genres of music this is my least favourite one. I can't put my finger on it, but it just turns me off.

Hardcore music in general: You know, the type of music with screaming vocals? That's something people wrongly associate with metal music, but the screaming vocals you're thinking of are actually hardcore bands or metal bands that core varieties in their sound. I like the growling vocals of death metal and can tolerate black metal vocals, but hardcore? No.

A lot of "club music": Like EDM, techno and such. The closest thing I like to club music would be retro-themed synthwave or vaporwave. Otherwise it's rare to find something I like.

For reference, my favourite genres are metal, classical, jazz, synthwave, vaporwave, j-pop and k-pop. Ofc I also like a lot of rock and pop music but those are such broad categories that it'd be hard not to like a lot of stuff in them.

I don't know if that Skrillex & Justin Bieber song is dubstep, but if it is, then it's literally the one good dubstep song I have ever heard. All the rest of dubstep is garbage.

I really can't stand "pop" music, like boy bands and Top 40 stuff.

I'm rather forgiving to a point about most other genres. For example I'm not a huge rap guy, but I do have a mix CD full of a bunch of rap songs I thoroughly enjoy. But the bubblegum stuff I just find completely vapid and soulless.

I'm also not huge into electronic music, like club stuff, but I adore KFMDM, for example.

I'm complicated.

I feel that pop music has gotten way worse this century. There's some cool pop songs from the 60s, 70s and 80s. I feel like most of the big pop hits all sound the same nowadays, basically.

I don't think anyone beyond teenage girls cares about boy bands

I like to think I have an eclectic taste in music. I'll listen to Michael Jackson one minute, then crank up some Fear Factory the next. But there are some genres that I either won't listen to or listen to a lot less than others.

Dubstep: I don't hate it, but I can't get into it, listen to it, or understand its popularity. I think it's just noise, really.

Rap: To be more specific, current rap. I don't like the sound and think it doesn't send the right message properly. I know there are some songs that have some deep meaning behind them but their delivery just sounds like they promote the wrong methods to a resolve a situation. I also can't stand the need for people to blare it out their cars and houses, making everyone else's windows shake and vibrate. Doesn't make me like it any better. Knock that the f**k off.

Pop: Mostly from after or during the year 2000. Occasionally there'll be a few gems amid the muck, but a lot of it just seems to be a mishmash of used bubblegum.

Country: Being married to a country girl, I've gotten used to it. She seems to have an ear for the good stuff. But in general, I could take it or leave it -- and more often than not, leave it. I find it hokey, formulaic, and predictable. It always seems to be about the same thing. And when it gets preachy, oh boy does it drown you in it.

I'm also pretty picky about the genres I do like, mainly metal. I can't stand screaming vocals. That just makes the songs incoherent and lose their meaning. I don't like having to look up lyrics just to know what the person is saying. The closest I can get to tolerating it is Mudvayne.

Everybody talks sh*t about country music, but anyone who ain't down with "Beer For My Horses" is someone I personally don't care to know.

I also love Charlie Daniels Band. Some people insist that that's more "bluegrass" than "country" but I feel like that's just splitting hairs.

That is a damn good song.

I do despise most country music, but I'll listen to some of it.

Opera. I fvcking HATE opera. I'm a savage without culture.

You hardly read any comic books until you were like 30-something. It goes without saying.

Is Dubstep still that big? I remember it being talked about a lot back in 2010-2012, but not so much anymore. Maybe that was the peak of its popularity?

Yes, when I listen to rap it has to be older and simpler rap. None of this overtly produced modern mainstream rap. Plus, I notice a lot of rap just talkes about subject that either I can't relate to at all or just don't care about. I mean, I can't really relate to a lot of lyrics in rock and metal music either, but at least they approach more interesting subjects or fantasy. And yes, I know not all hip-hop is about money, the ghetto cars, drugs, sex, etc. but A LOT of the popular kind is. And those themes and aesthetics present in the genre kinda turn me off from it. So even if I enjoy some rap music I don't care about the whole "hip-hop culture" thing.

Yep, like you, I prefer older pop music. Nowadays most pop music sounds pretty much the same.

I honestly don't think I've listened much to country. So I can't really give an opinion on it.

The types of really loud metal that involves a lot of screaming. Death? Trash? Dunno what the specific genre is, but it's the ones where it is hard to understand what is being sung(or screamed) and the loudness gets tiring on your ears quickly.

Most rap and hiphop. Not a fan of the lifestyle many of these songs advocate, the fashion this genre advertises look really tacky and ugly. And often you have to listen to a song multiple times to get the vocals, cause so many artists sing in this frantic and stressed manner.

Sounds like you're describing Death Metal, some Black Metal and the endless amounts of 'Core' genres (Deathcore, MetalCore, Grindcore etc.)

Thrash metal isn't really Screaming like other genres. Thrash metal vocalists are harsh, but they Shout rather than Scream

I’m not a big fan of music in general tbh, though I like at least a bit of most genres aside from death metal and opera.

Death metal: Hard to understand what’s been said. Doesn’t help that I’m more of a lyrics person.

Opera: Too flipping loud.

Not especially. Classical music, sure.

Least fave genres? MOST country (if you've heard one "crying in your beer" song, you've heard them all!) and just about all modern/current rap/hip-hop. Most Deathmetal, Thrashmetal, and other "Scream-o" metal genres. I also HATE most of the current pop music, as it all feels cheap, boring, talentless, and meaningless.

Might not be a popular opinion, but I actually enjoy opera. Some of it, anyway. But then, I am a big fan of musical theater to begin with, so opera isn't much of a jump for me. I also enjoy genres most would never listen to, like ethnic/world music, new age/meditation, and fantasy or gothic music. Also anime themes, Euro-pop, and jazz. I'm musically eclectic....

I have a major issue about classical music-opera, and it is that a lot of the fans look down on other people, and see themselves as better persons, trying to "educate" others that their taste of music is superior)

Spoken like someone who can't even tell the difference between a "Boomer" and a "Gen-X'er". No, as much as musical taste is subjective, a lot of what is currently being produced is cookie-cutter, cheap, and bland. Catchy, maybe, but about as culturally stimulating as back-lot c-list sci-fi, or as intellectually nourishing as plain oatmeal. And so much of it is just plain crap. Entire careers built around flashy songs intended as musical insults to ex-lovers, or as edgy statements of "street cred". Hardly anything of actual substance.

Fozzy was the last truly excellent band to emerge. Everything else since is "Eh."

Actually Dead Sara is also pretty amazing. So there's two.
