Music being the operative term...
Thrash metal where the "singer" (and I use the term loosely) just screams at you like he's about to puke on his shoes and the only words you understand are the even louder swearing "FUCK YOU!!!" 's is not music. It's good Background music for like horror movies, but to just listen to it?
No, it sucks.
Rap -- good only in small doses really in English, now in Japanese I sit and giggle my ass off entertained... in English I'm not all that concerned about "booty", "big butts", "cop killing" or calling your girlfriend a "ho". O_o I think it's offensive actually 99.99999999% of the time.
I love Bluegrass, and "old" country music, the newer stuff blends into generic current pop sounding canned kareoke with a twang...
I love Rock from the 50's to Current, I love Jpop, Techno, Industrial, Classical, Big Band, Swing, Jazz, Blues, Calumet City Blues.... I like most music... that being said I turn off the radio and go off to write.
Sorry, I just can't listen to that music for extended periods of time, my ears bleed from being screamed at by piss-pour "singers" with attitdues way too big for their "talent".
Sorry Limp Bizket, Gobsmack, etc... fans, they SUCK IMO.... O_o (THey may come out with one or 2 songs I actually LIKE, but generally most of their tunes... ICK)
If I want to be screamed at, I'll throw on AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, "old skool metal"... because at least the music they scream to actually ROCKS, you have great guitar solos, rockin' drums, kickin bass lines etc... and it's not all distored, over processed digital noise without definition thumping behind the "singer".
I'm such a bitch.
