Why? I have been wanting to debate this for a while and in a thread with senseable posts I hope this can happen. The way I see it is mainstream pop shouldn't be criticized but enjoyed for what is, disposeable, fun music with a few lasting tunes. But alas, most of it gets alot of shit from people who have what they consider a great musical taste and can't enjoy any mainstream pop without dismissing it. See most of these people haven't heard the albums and more often than not have only heard a few of the artists songs, which is what gets my gut. Anyways, please, feel free to post some good lengthy posts that display your opinion on mainstream pop music, so I can tll you that you are wrong. Thankyou.

I could easily quote the whole argument we had over this in another thread and prove you are wrong right here on the spot, but as I can't be bothered with that I'll just tell you again.

Music shouldn't be disposable.

Talentless twats like Ashlee Simpson shouldn't be getting airplay with annoying and terrible songs.

Because of peoples love for this **** mainstream pop, people like Paris Hilton are being allowed to break into the music industry. Which will no doubt end up with every girl in my school singing along to her songs.

And, above all, it makes me feel superior to people who like this mainstream pop music when I belittle them. All a dude wants is some love...

I can't say i like just about any mainstream pop music, but i can't be arsed to take the piss out of people who do, if they enjoy it and find comfort in it etc, then thats great. Threads like the one about James Blunt are completely unproductive and pointless, who cares if you don't like James Blunt? Theres no point in spreading hatred.

Saying things like '*pop artist* should **** off and die' is immature and unjustified, and the kind of opinion i could only expect from a 5 year old.

The Kooks are a pop band, essentially. I remember you said you liked them.

I can understand why you think Ashlee Simpson etc aren't good, i don't think theyre good either, but pop ain't all that bad. The Smiths, The Cure, New Order, Super Furry Animals, Blur, the list goes on, they've all written bloody amazing, catchy pop songs. Theres no point taking a whole genre and saying its rubbish.

Yes, I'm not really talking about those though. There should be 2 different genres-that for Ashlee Simpson and the rest of those talentess hoebags, and then one for Blur, The Smiths etc. From now on if I say Pop is **** just no I'm talking about the former category.

And yes I know this is musical snobbishness. But to be honest, I don't care.

^^ Theres pop and then theres pop.

It's because mainstream pop music by the likes of artists such as Britney, Simpson, Aguilera etc etc have been writing the same songs of eather love or broken hearts for over 20 years. It's all they can do to sell, well that and lots of makeup. There is slim to fuck effort involved in this music, yet it gets all the attention while a million other bands, you know, the ones that actually make an effort, starve from the attention they don't get, but actually work to earn.

It's fine to like it, fine to enjoy it, we don't really give a shit. But don't act as if you don't know why people have no respect for it.
