I have the solution to all your problems - tune in to the local Classical station, and I promise you will NEVER hear any of those songs! ^________________^


Personally, any song where you can't understand the words goes at the bottom of the list. Therefore, most of modern rock, rap, r&b, jazz, emo and anything else I'm missing is out. Okay, let's be honest - anything written less than fifty years ago will NOT be on my favorites list. Except country. *waits for the rotten tomatoes* Honestly. Oldies are okay. Early rock you could actually understand, there was more to the music than a bass line, and it was catchy in a good way. Example: "Locomotion", by Little Eva. Ever wonder why it's so popular, even today? Because it was GOOD. She was the original singer, by the way. In case you were wondering.

But I don't really listen to any modern stuff. I listen to Classical, and there's nothing I don't like in that genre. ^_^

I personally listen to mostly punk and heavy metal. I am a bit of a snob about it though. I am very selective and do not just listen to any of the [explitive deleted] that comes down the main pipe line.

When it comes to punk, I tend to stick more to bands that actually have something to say like Bad Religion. I can understand the lyrics and their songs have actual messages in them that you do not need a degree in literature, just a brain, to figure out.

On heavy metal, I highly despise most of the [two million explitives deleted] that are forced onto me. Qui-gon said it best, "The ability to speak does not make one intelligent." Well neither does the ability to scream make one a rock star.

I stick more to old school Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Ozzy.

Also, I have a huge collection of "oldies." To this day, Buddy Holly is still my favorite singer. And I will take the Beach Boys over the Beatles any day of the week. All the classic rock stations here in Houston seem to have a huge thing for the Beatles so they play their music constantly.

I swear to the All Father if I have to hear "Yellow Submarine" one more time I am going to [infinite number of explitives deleted] everything in sight.

hehe, my mom always listened to the classical station when I was little. I really don't like it. I can count the songs I like in that genre on one hand - three fingers even. Now when together in the car we take the middle line and listen to folk >>; (eva cassidy! yay!)

It's never to late to fall in love. From the musical The Boyfriend.

That woman's voice, especially when she says 'wack a doo' it just makes me want to kick her into oblivion.

Video games don't make people violent. Barbie* and bad music make people violent.




*I hate dolls, every time I see a barbie or a bratz advert I feel the urge to kill rising.

Oh gosh, Britty, you hit the bane of my life. I always hated dolls, and relatives always got them for me on special occasions! I wanted model horses!!! *grins* Nevermind, I'll be quiet now.

I liked Avril Lavigne, but that Girlfriend song? It was as stupid as it was catchy.

Okay? oldies are great ^__^

Sorry Nu, to have classical ruined for you, but folk's good too.. ^__^

I can't listen to any music where I can't understand the words without getting a migrain, and my bus driver does not know the meaning of good music, he puts on music where the singers are whining all the time, (voice, not lyrics, I mean) and has carols on the whole holiday season (meaning, from the day after Thanksgiving onward)

I hate the beachboys.

HATE.

And...


I love like... "real" modern rock and roll. Not any of those stupid subgenres, but the stuff that actually qualifies as rock and roll. Incubus, Chevelle, Trapt, and Foo Fighters seem to epitomize this to me. It's not that I despise those subgenres, but I think "real" rock and roll has becomes drowned in the see of Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Soft Rock, Country Rock, Emo, Screamo, Screamer, and all those other musical types that tend to weigh down the genre.

In other words, you're a rock'n'roll elitist. Wink

No no, I'm not. I'm not into indy, after all. Those guys are rock and roll elitists. "Oh, I've been listening to Coopersville since they opened for Rauch"... or "I've listened to Dangerdangerdanger since before their first album was released" or whatever. Those guys really annoy me ><;

*winces* *tiny voice* I do not like Alicia Key's 'No One.' It sounds like she's moaning.

*flees*

That they are elitists does not preclude you from being one. It was the attitude of "only the stuff I listen to is real rock" that prompted the comment.

And now for something completely different.
We can't stand Freebird. Got exposed to it many years and many inches ago, didn't like it, got told "You'll grow into it," never did and now can't understand why it seems to be the song to shout for someone to play. (Boy, that came out twisted. Hopefully it's still understandable.) Or is that just one colossal joke-meme?

Hey now, Mato, we aren't all like that. My favorite genre is indie, but I'm one of the most musically open-minded people I know.

That being said, I really hate almost every station that plays "modern music" in the Dallas area because they're all owned by the same company and they all play the exact same music, resulting in just about every single song that comes out reaching "overplayed" status within a week or two. Although the Edge has greatly improved recently due to a change in management that enabled them to go back to their original format (yay, 90's music!). Before that it seemed like they played the exact same few songs every hour.

I'll never forgive them for cancelling the Adventure Club on Sunday nights, though. That stuff was awesome.

Our classical station is awesomesauce, and the oldies and classic rock stations are also pretty good for the most part, but I only listen to the radio in the car, and for some reason I can never listen to anything but rock music while I'm driving or Bad Things (TM) happen, so I guess I should just start bringing my CDs in the car, or something.

Also, really? Somebody doesn't like the sexy tractor song? I think that song's hilarious. Oh well. To each his own, I guess.
