What a poll!!
The problem is...I wanted to click more than a few there...dammit I should have used the "other" option.
But here my choice was the death metal crap...that music can turn a perfectly fine mood into

Sorry, I should have made more categories but I was trying to condense the list. I thought disco belonged in with techno and electronica even though original disco was not just like it, it's similar, it's 'dance music.' I forgot to put that. I know real, original heavy metal is not the same as death metal or numetal, and I shouldn't have lumped them together, but these days most newer heavy metal sounds like that, sadly. I also forgot hiphop, I guess that should be in with rap. I shouldn't have put ska in with jazz. I'd like to pick more than one too! A lot of sorry music out there!

don't worry about it, as i said before no one's going to agree completly with any categorization that anyone comes up with. that long rambel i posted before was just me being a music geek.

And musicals and alternative country (which cannot in any way be lumped in with country)...but geesh, that would've been a long poll

I'm sorry, but I just can't get into that stuff...I know a lot of people out there love songs like "Stayin' Alive" and "Dancing Queen" and "I Will Survive"...I personally cannot stand those songs, along with various others.

Second on the list would be country. There are very few country artists out there I'll listen to, and if there are any, most of them are from my parents and grandparents' generations. A lot of what they call "country" music today sucks and is not true country.

Those are the only two genres I really hate. Other than that I'll listen to music from pretty much any genre. Yeah, there's certain artists I may not care for in the genres I listen to, but there's also great music from all the other genres out there, so...

And all this being said, I mean no offense to anyone out there who does like disco music or country music. .

Basically, I just feel that as long as you enjoy what you're listening to, that's all that matters.

I had disco, it was in with techno. I hated disco when I was a kid, Bee Gees, Chic, Villiage People, all that junk! I still do! I agree, the country my parents and grandparents listened to was true country- Johnny Cash, Carter Family, Ernest Tubb, Grand Ole Opry. I used to not like it when I was a kid but I appreciate a lot of it now, but I don't like most of today's new country- it's so cheesy and whiney and it all sounds so alike. Some of it is just as prepackaged and polished as the teen pop!


I was bored- I feel the same way about you about the categories, you were right! I was just trying to condense the list. I just wanted you to know I knew better. We could probably even think up more!

It was hard to decide, but I finally chose manufactured pop because the fakeness and attitude annoys me beyond belief. My first instinct was country, but I'm starting to actually appreciate some of it, so that was ruled out.. but it was hard to decide between rap metal, heavy metal, and pop. Instrumental annoys me quite a bit too, but it's pretty neutral.

Um, yeah, I ramble.

I picked teen/manufactured pop. Modern rap drives me up the wall, but back in the late '80s when it first broke into the mainsteam I thought some of it was pretty interesting, especially Run DMC and Public Enemy. I loathe modern country, but I like Johnny Cash and think Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers have put out some decent stuff, so at least modern country came out of something that was good in the first place. But the entire IDEA of manufactured pop is sickening to me. It reduces music to nothing more than a way to get 13-year-old girls to waste their allowances.
