Strongly disagree-rap (and hip-hop) can be a very valid, important form of music. Some good political messages, there's some rap songs that I can think of that have a sort of poetic tone lyrically, there's some catchy, fun rap/hip-hop songs. Sure, a lot of songs talk about drugs and women and stuff like that-that's what a lot of rappers have grown up dealing with. They rap about the environment in which they've lived. It may not be pretty, but it can still be worth listening to.

Yeah, I'm with those who don't agree with totally dismissing an entire genre of music. Sure, there's some genres I don't listen to as much as others, but there's good and bad stuff in all genres. And all genres should be considered valid musical forms.

Modern Country is horrid.... (Johnny Cash rules though).
Norteno and Ranchero music is also awful.

Just because of a few crappy contemporary hip hop artists like 50 Cent (personal opinion), you absolutely cannot put down the whole genre! I'm not a big fan of the genre myself but in the past I've enjoyed songs by Dr.Dre, TLC, Run DMC, Del The Funky Homosapien, House Of Pain, Rob Base among others! Even Kriss Kross' Jump though kinda annoying is a catchy little track from 1992.

I can't think of any genre of music where there isn't at least a few artists or songs I like, with the possible exception of bubblegum teen pop.

Anyone who dismisses entire genres are as closed minded as anyone who dismisses entire races, religions, or ethnic groups...

1. Rap is the result of under privileged urban kids who couldn't afford guitars and produced music by using what was available to them. Public Enemy, Disposable Heroes, Beastie Boys, Fugees have all made good music.

2. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday...enough said.

3. Not a genre I listen to that much, but many have some of the most technical musicians around.

4. Tommy, Rent, Phantom you're going to dismiss all of them?

Ridiculous

I really dislike country and rap. I can stand pretty much anything else.

I like a little bit from pretty much every genre, but I think I'd draw the line at death metal, and perhaps the extreme form of "experimental" jazz.

Rap, country, pop(except u2's pop of course), and that today's rock music(i.e. bands like fall out boy and yellow card), and finally that screaming heavy metal rock where every song sounds the same

See, I can't even join with you on that one, because I am a sucker for a catchy pop tune. I looooove me some guilty pleasure pop!

I don't care for the more free-form jazz, but I like big band and a lot of jazz vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald and her ilk.

Even rap ... while I know myself well enough to know I won't like a rap/hip hop album no matter how many critical raves it gets, I LOVE a great hip hop single. Kanye West's "Jesus Walks," Outkast "Bombs Over Baghdad" (to say nothing of the fabulous "Hey Ya," even though that's not really hip hop) ... I just love a good single.

That modern, soulless crap that passes as country these days, however ... I have no use for it. But I wouldn't dismiss country as a whole, because there's so much great, "real" stuff in its vaults.

For the most part, I hate rap too.

But both Kanye West and Outkast are absolutely fantastic. Their records are right at home in my collection and deal with things completely different from the usual rap fare (cars, rims, hos, money, da club, and narcotics)

The only thing I honestly dislike is progressive, and I can't say I like New Age either.

But that's just me.

Parading opinion as fact is just annoying.

in reply,
1 - Rap is 'music' born out of their enviroment?!? Yeah THEIR enviroment not mine therefore it means nothing to me.Beastie boys LOL are they for real? I always thought they were a piss take rap group.
2 - I just dont get jazz,sorry but i dont like it.
3 - Granted they are very talented musicians but again if you dont like the sound you dont like the sound!
4 - Tommy? dont make me laugh!!! WTF is that all about?? If you listen to musicals the music generally follows the same formular and ends up as 'just another Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice monstrosity.
As my original post said it is music I dont like.I have tried to listen to it but it aint for me i'm afraid.
