Worst Hottest 100 ever. I'm feeling like Peter in 'Office Space'; "every day you meet me, that's the worst day of my life."

Acourse I'm probably the wrong person to ask, as for me all that up and coming stuff from people like Purity Ring and Grimes, that you guys like, is everything that's wrong in popular music. Twee, sugary, shite.

That Halsey woman (I misheard it as "Ballsy" for months because the jays' on air personalities cannot enunciate to save their lives) is atrocious.

I'm trying to figure out how fairly dark synthpop can be called twee, sugary, and slight. That sounds like you're talking about, well, twee pop like Belle and Sebastian or Beat Happening or Tallulah Gosh.

It's like these Double J ads are made just for Kieran.

Ironically enough, I don't much like Double J. The few times I looked into it it seemed to be mostly fairly mediocre rockabilly music. Anyhow, I don't particularly pine for the nineties or whatever. I'm engaged on a grand journey of discovery into seventies and eighties music, that has nothing to do with nostalgia (I wasn't around for most of it).

It may be thematically dark, but Purity Ring in particular (and yes, I have heard quite a bit of their stuff in one context or another) just comes off as so slight, so... yeesh, they're like Tegan and Sara with synths.

The heavy music that makes the Hottest 100 is inevitably terrible. This Parkway Drive song is absolutely shit metalcore, music for 16 year olds - but 16 year olds in 2006. Are there actual teenagers still listening to this?

I don't mean to be a nitpicker, because I really hate the people who act like if you enjoy metal you must hate punk and vice versa (I know a number of metal fans who go on and on about how punk is simple juvenile music for idiots), but this isn't metal of any sort, let alone death metal. It's melodic metalcore, which derives from hardcore punk.

Bet you anything that dreadful Dead Letter Circus get a song in. Speaking of 'heavy' shite, and yes, I think this is what the kids listen to.

Oh sweet, Alpine.

(Though Kieran if you were calling Purity Ring slight and twee, despite their witch house background, I hate to think what you'll call this.)

I also don't like Alpine, for same reasons as Purity Ring. God, I'll be popular in this thread!

With both artists/groups, a lot of it is in the weightless, girly-girly quality of the vocals.

Mah bad!

Thought Foolish would be way higher. They didn't have any bigger songs off Yuck than that right?

Metalcore is even more horrible than death metal.

Why is A$AP Rocky the only rapper on here?
