All about music

I am going to be completely unbiased in this but I am going to include my opinion on certain music. I enjoy all kinds of music besides country but I mostly love rock and metal.

I am going to start out with my favorite first, Metal music. Metal can be alternative, nu (a mixture), softcore, hardcore, death/deathcore. Mudvayne is an example of deathcore. Their heaviest song is probably Dig or Forget to remember. Happy ? is my favorite song by them. Metal is usually about life and love and heartbreak.

Slipknot is an example of nu metal, a mixture of different genres but still classified as metal. Their softest song is Snuff and their 'hardest' song is probably Psychosocial.My favorite song by them is Killpop.

Now onto rock. Coldplay for example is alternative rock or pop rock. They're more of a light sounding band. Their best songs in my opinion is Viva la Vida and Fix you. Rock is usually about life and emotions and more serious topics.

Now hip-hop. This is a genre not most people like but i find it to be very nice sounding. An example is Ed Sheeran. He is considered hip hop, with some pop, folk and acoustic. My favorite songs by him are Photograph and Wake me up. Hip hop can be about anything from just dancing to love.

Now for some pop. Lorde is considered very popular, or just pop. She is a good singer with a nice voice. I dont listen to her as much but music thats considered pop is POPular for a reason. I find pop to be extremely catchy. Uptown Funk is very catchy and I like how he can get a bunch of people to sing positive words about themselves. Pop can be about anything, it's just whatever is popular.

Reggae is more fun and may be considered pop. It is influenced by Rastafarian ideas and may revolve around that, for example, Bob Marley. Cheerleader by OMI is considered pop reggae, one of my favorite songs of this genre. It's positive about your girlfriend (or SO in general) and to not cheat. I find it sweet and catchy.

Rap. Rap is not for everyone but many rap songs are popular, and are a mix of pop/rap. Rap is mostly about money, sex, life, relationships. There is rap like Eminem, and 50 cent, Drake. Some rap songs may have serious topics like love and life siutations but it can also contain just stuff about sex, ass (i.e. anaconda by nicki minaj) My personal favorite rap song is Stan by Eminem. I named a cat Stan after this song.

Lastly, country. There may be songs about tractors, farming, beer, love, sex and sometimes pain. There are different bands like Lady Antebellum, The band perry, even Lynyrd Skynyrd is considered country. I generally dont like country but my favorite country song is what hurts the most by the rascal flatts.

Every genre includes different things, different styles and instruments. Everyone has different tastes and some genres may be more serious than others. Five finger death punch is awesome but so is Beethoven in my opinion, along with the band perry and eminem. Some may like all genres, or whatever catches their attention and keeps ahold of it. Some may only like one genre. Music in general is amazing and serves an outlet, through emotions without needing to speak. Some songs can help you when you're sad, either by being sad (What hurts the most by rascal flatts) or being cheerful. Some may help when you're depressed and suicidal (coming down by five finger death punch) and some may just be nice when you're happy (like happy by pharell williams). Everyone has different likes when it comes to music and everyone enjoys music, but if someone doesn't then they have an outlet for them that music does for us. To some people, music is a controversial topic, assuming pop is shit or metal is about satan. Not necessarily true. People can like what they like and dont need to be judged for it. Music is something special a lot of people hold dearly to their heart.

    Nice Take, but you got all the Hip hop/Rap thing wrong. Hip Hop is not a genre of music, it's a culture, and inside that culture there are 4 elements: Breakdance, Graffiti, Dj, and Rap.
    Ed Sheeran has absolutely nothing to do with hip hop.

    As someone that loves Rap music and has grown with it, used it to help me through tough times, and helped me build myself up, I feel somewhat offended by the definition you give about Rap. Rap is not about money, sex, and relationships, it's about life, problems, overcoming struggles, power... it's about expressing what's in your mind, letting your voice be heard.
    "Some rap songs may have serious topics" No, most Rap songs have serious topics, thee problem is that today's rap is fucked up, just compare Stan with any song of today and you'll see the difference. Real Rap is not Drake, little Wayne, Nicki Minaj... real Rap is 2Pac, Biggie, Nas, old Jay-Z, N. W. A, Eminem...
    Listen to these songs and spot the differences with today's Rap songs.

    And that is just 2Pac.

    Is this still revelant?
    • I apologize, I used google.

    • I figured... it's ok though.

      @AleDeEurope all songs are about: " expressing what's in your mind, letting your voice be heard."

      rap's roots are in children's games... jumping rope, double dutch, etc.

    Metal music can also be:: death, black, gothic, folk, viking, doom, symphonic, power, thrash, speed, progressive, and of course there's "avantgarde" for whatever doesn't fit anything else

    Then of course you have subcategories like funeral doom, ambient black, technical progressive, DSBM (depressive suicidal black); and then you have mixtures like gothic/doom or black/death or progressive/classical etc.

    gothic doom

    there's "dark" for whatever also doesn't fit anything

    metal with electronic influence

    There is so much more to metal than Linkin Park and Slipknot

    • (and I totally forgot about "heavy metal" like Slayers, derp)

    • i know, i wasn't saying thats all there is. of course that wasn't every single category

  • My favourite genre is definitely post-rock. Here are some great post-rock songs:

    I also like a broad range of alternative rock and electronica and blends of those. Not the easy, accessible kind usually. I detest the kind of big, generic dance music like EDM, and pop rock also isn't really my thing — you mentioned Coldplay, well my favourite Coldplay song is Midnight from the last record. Here's some more stuff I like:

  • Doffydood

    Well, you know about 100% more about music than I do :P

    • its just google and shit i learned by paying attention tbh xD I'm not too smart or anything

    • Doffydood

      Then again, I don't know anything about music, so yeah. :)

    • lol whale then

  • bloodmountain1990

    Mudvayne is definitely not deathcore. Not to sound like one of those elitist metalheads but they're nu metal mixed with alternative metal and some Math/prog influence.

    • It's like saying Slayer and Ghost are black metal because they sing about Satan.

  • ImaginativeDreamer

    You forgot about classical music, electronic music, blues, punk, gothic, soul, jazz... but nice take anyway :)

  • Maxemeister

    My favorites r: Alternative, alternative rock, regular rock

  • Anpu23

    There are a lot more types of music then this. You missed Classical, Punk, Folk, Jaz, Ska, & Blues, just to name a few.

  • PT1911

    Can't talk about metal if you're not going to talk about the Big 4.

    • PT1911

      But still, good take :)
