Type of music you would consider torture

Suppose you were being tortured. What type of music do you consider so bad that it would do the job, and that you must turn off each time you hear it? What do you consider unbearable to listen to?

I pick Destiny's Child type stuff, bunch of girls moaning and whining over bunched up words with no tune. Worse than fingernails on a chalkboard.

Does Coldplay count as a "type" of music?



sorry, just had to. but I'm really annoyed by all the artists with "breathy" vocals like Coldplay, John Mayer, DMB, etc.

As for worst genres, I'm torn between whiny white-boy NuMetal (Linkin Park, e.g.) and most modern R&B. Both genres have their exceptions but for the most part they just suck and reek of derivativeness.

Pretentious “wank” music, such as:

Styx
YES
REO Speedwagon, etc…..

Can’t really stand UK “garage” music either.

Almost everything my roommate listens to...

As HelloAngel said earlier, it's Fall Out Boy type music. It sounds like a bunch of little boys whining about being adolescent.

Contemporary country is the most contrived and awful genre of music around. I get the full brunt of it living deep in the heart of Texas. It's formulaic, uninspired, and just plain boring. All the songs begin to sound the same after thirty minutes listening to the same station, which I have to do since every person who lives here listens to the shit.

I fucking hate country music.

Emo. It's the same thing over and over again - 'my heart's broken... roses.... so now I bleed.... more roses' etc etc. I can't stand those forced accents that emo bands seem to adopt, either. I'm just thankful that that sort of music hasn't become so mainstream here (yet).

Britney Spears or Jessica Simpson--I would rather listen to Celine Dion or Michael Bolton for hours than either one of them. Don't get me started on those talentless little #*@&s.

You'd really have to tie me to a chair to make me listen to country music.....especially people like Kenny Chimney or Gretchen Walton.....

New Stones Song (it's FUCKING terrible!)
Bon Jovi
Ashley Simpson, etc...
simple plan..and that band that sings the lifestyles of the rich and the famous song... etc...
Aerosmith (except dream on)
Diva type music and most R and B.. and those rappers who try to sound jamaican or whatever..
Hip Hop produced for the masses.. with remixes and pop beats and Beyonce singing every chorus(not good hip hop like NAS, and a few others)
Country.. the whole works of country is terrible (except some old Cash... George Jones.. Merle Haggard stuff I guess)
Avril Lavigne


sheesh. .. I'm sure I could think of more.. those came right off the top of my head.. and I take this seriously.. these songs really bother me.. I cannot listen to the radio

yeah, i can kinda agree with this

my roommate listens to some decent music (pink floyd, radiohead) but then he listens to this weird neo-jazz stuff, and some freaky band called "mindless self indulgence" that makes me want to stab my ear-drum with a ballpoint pen. i can't even turn my ipod up loud enough to make it go away.

try watching cmt after midnight, they have some video show called "wide opne country" the other night they played loretta lynn with jack white, the jayhawks, and kathleen edwards. like you said, most contemporary country sucks, but there is some really good alt-country.
