Nope, its just a subjective opinion. Not considering something the worst based on something like accomplishments would be a rather closed minded way to view it though. It doesn't matter what it has accomplished, if someone subjectively considers something subjective the worst based on subjective criteria than that is subjectively the worst to them.

I'm sorry, I don't care if it's subjective or not, we're talking about a genre that spans many centuries and has pretty much been the whole foundation of music theory, something that is rooted in all cultures from around the world, is incredibly diverse and requires a ridiculous amount of skill and discipline in both composition and musicianship. I don't care how boring you think it is, if you think it's the worst kind of music when we have everything from smooth jazz to metalcore, you simply aren't paying enough attention as a musicgoer.

Good to know, Mr. guy who has over 1000 posts that consist only of a few words of trollish nonsense, surely your opinion matters.

Have any of these people claiming that classical music is the worst kind of music even listened to any? and do they mean the classical period or just in general?
by the way anyone actually listened to death metal? i mean it must have redeeming factors in there
but as far as i can tell
no melody no real harmonic variation
yay aeolian, locrian and phrgian modes...ugh
no range of emotions...only hate and anger
horrible tone devoid of mid-range
lyrics that dont actually matter due to their consistent incoherence
and every song with a frickin double kick
not to mention the hair and clothes and wanky playing

im not a huge classical fan ( im in an electro group, and a big fan of daft punk) but to diss a multi-faceted genre that spans centuries and continents is just ignorant...you really must just not like music
go listen to noisecore and pretend melody and harmony dont exist

Country and gangsta rap are tied for first in my book with screamo taking second. And I have to agree with FireInCairo about death metal.

Classical has some good compositions. I think if people explored it more and actually got to listen to more composers they'd eventually find one or two composers that they like. I wasn't really into it until i stumbled upon Carl Orff (Carmina Burana).

Sometimes death metal breaches genres and actually sounds good. In fact, some of the best modern metal bands are death metal bands:

Agalloch
Opeth
Meshuggah
Anathema (it's a stretch, but w/e)

If 90% of death metal is shit, there's still other outstanding metal genres that I hate even more. Black metal is completely awful, with some of the most gruesome lyrics ever.

I think in basically any genre you can find some good but some overall bad genres for me would be (listed in ascending order of terribleness):

nu-metal
smooth jazz
contemporary christian
urban contemporary gospel
