Narrow minded people are annoying sometimes. I remember this one time few years ago when I was at my girlfriends house and I used her computer to listen to some post-rock. Both my girlfriend and her friend were like: "What is this ****? How can you listen to this? How can you enjoy it live when you can't jump around and dance to the music?". Needless to say I facepalmed the rest of the evening.

I've dealt with that many, many times. Instrumental music, gothic avant garde bands, and dream pop/shoegazey bands have to deal with that a lot. Because some people can only listen to music that's upbeat, under five minutes with lyrics to connect to. Personally, I think that people like that are missing out, badly. Personally I think people whose music never strays out of top-40 territory are lazy, and don't care anymore and can't be bothered to try something new.

These people see music as entertainment, just like a TV programme.
It sounds pleasant, it doesn't trigger their brains in anyway, so it's nice 'n easy.
It's usually very catchy and repetative and really annoying to my ears.

Until their favorite radio station shoves it down their throats, then they love it.

voluntarily having music force-fed is a bit scary, I think...

I listen to mainstream radio because my friends and my sibs like it. A lot of the pop singles suck but I like Gaga, Katy Perry when she's not shooting sparks out of her breasts, and vintage Britney Spears. Ke$ha's my favorite. Her songs are completely substanceless and don't really pretend not to be but their always so fucking catchy and I love her voice. It's pretty, it sounds good even when its not loaded up with a bunch of effects. I like mainstream hip hop when it sounds clean, like the song "Bottoms Up" too. I even Justin Bieber's "Baby" and "I Whip my Hair Back and Forth".
I hate most of the music my mom listens to. I've gotten her into some really good 60s pop, The Clash, and The Black Keys and reintroduced her to the Stones but she listens to Billy Joel, who I don't care for at all, and this XM radio station that plays the shittiest music from the 70s.
She made me listen to this Seal song that she thinks is just the greatest. She put it on repeat like 20 times. I was ready to kill myself. Its just so lame.

Really, you like Kesha's voice? I think she's got a hideous voice.

She's actually got a voice that would be pretty hard to hate. Its light but powerful and it doesn't really sound like she's trying. I think you might hate the vocal effects.

You really don't have to watch that, she sings without effects at the beginning so you'll see what I mean but the font and the background are very ugly.

Dear God, these songs are horrible for the most part.

Lately, every time I've gone to a party at the house of my ex, she's been blaring this bull****:



I think it sounds kind of like Three Days Grace but maybe worse.
