You can only choose one.
You can only choose one.
ICP is not nu-metal. And Editors Want Revenge are not post-punk.
Since I don't feel like putting Kavinsky and Justice in 'other,' I'll go with my second option.
wow, good poll question. a very tough topic no doubt. Most of those are very shitty.
I like Clipse, Dr. Dre and some other "gangsta rap" so i guess i can't pick that one. THough most of gangsta rap truly is awful.
I like Editors, She Wants Revenge, and Interpol so I can't say "21st Century Post punk ripoffs"
pop country is bad, but far less agonizing than other categories....
i think for me its a 6 way tie betwee Nu metal, Hair metal, post grunge, pop punk, eyeliner emo and christian.
maybe i'll have to give the edge to eyeliner EMo. Especially if that includes Screamo
I went with grunge, because you have included 3 of the worst bands ever in such category.
These genres are stinking up the board.
post grunge has some good bands
and again your editors wants intepol is shit, well i dont like she wants revenge, but interpol and editors are good bands
and the worst genre of this poll is pop country
how could you seriously perfer to see Panic At The Disco or My Chemical Romance over Korn or Limp Bizkit?
Id say MCR and those losers would be the worst....them and Nickelback type bands...
it was geniunely hard to pick one. i only picked pop country because my housemate fucking lovvvvvvvvves carrie underwood. barf.
I can actually listen to almost anything......except Christian Music...
Gotta go post-grunge. There's at least a sense of fun and/or stupid catchiness in everything else.
I don't consider "Christian" a genre, because they have music of every genre. Anybody remember The Swirling Eddies? They were like the Dead Milkmen of Christian music.
Honestly, Gangster Rap is probably the worst, but I like a lot of the old-school stuff.
Grindcore is pretty bad.
so is drone metal.
oh and Merzbow, whatever the fuck he is
I also don't see Creed and Nickleback as "post-grunge." They're not an extension of the grunge movement, they're a regression to simpler rock.
Also, Deftones were nu-metal too, and they were fucking awesome for the first two albums. That'll always be true nu-metal to me.
I'm sure glad Disco wasn't on your list.
I think Creed, Nickelback, Hinder, Daughtry, etc. are just generic radio rock. I don't like associating them with post-grunge because grunge was an actual movement of music that didn't suck. No matter though, whatever you wanna label them, it's the worst thing out there. Eyeliner emo is a close runner-up.
Hair Metal rulz. Long live Cinderella!
Christian is not a genre...especially given the fact that your 3 examples are completely different styles of music.
I wish all the little emo boyz would just give it up and give their little sisters their pants back.
Deftones and fucking shitty cocksucking Korn were an evolution of grunge in a lot of ways, but not that other shit. Seriously, tell me this isn't the child of grunge right here:
How come trance isn't on there?! Its boring and cheesy. Actually I can't stand everything on there except hair metal (sorry grew up on that stuff) & 21 st century post punk ripoffs ( i actually like all those bands mentioned) so there!
Well, if there isn't an option for ed banger, why would trance?
And.. where's Jack Johnson?
Trance isn't on there because no one cares about it except a sliver of a sliver of a genre.
I agree with that, I just don't think it's appropriate to sully the legacy of grunge by saying that that garbage is in any way a derivative of it.
At the peak of grunge, there were plenty of bandwagon jumpers sullying that legacy before it was even written.
For me, Grunge was more of a palette cleanser than anything else. It helped clear the shit off mainstream radio and MTV. By that point, I had already given up on mainstream radio, so it never made much of an impact on my life. It made the world better, though. When I was a freshman in college, my dorm neighbors were listening to Milli Vanilli and Young MC. When I was a senior, they were listening to Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. I never liked any of them, but the latter years were much more tollarable.
Creed could also be considered a Christian band.
