^Hahaha.

Actually that whole panning thing annoys me too.

Hidden tracks.
Ridiculously long song names.
Badly timed samples - I like samples when used correctly, but when not can totally ruin a song.

I love the Electric Blues, well the kind that was in between Country Blues/Piedmont Blues and before the British Blues boom. e.g. Willie Dixon, T Bone Walker, and Slim Harpo. And I think70s Prog is the best, especially in the early years when it beginning it was faster and had more raw than what became later. So being in the earlier causes a whole lot of pet peeves for later bands that play those styles.

I think my biggest pet peeve now are those who sing in that Folkish style often found in pop indie that uses a lot a vibrato and a squeaky voice.

These goddamned vocals

Spoiler for Videos that could crash your browser if I hadn't used the spoiler tags:










Common in:
  • Pop "punk" (The All-American Rejects)
  • "Emo"-pop (We the Kings)
  • Disney acts (The Jonas Brothers)
And a confession: I used to like all those songs less than two years ago, save that last one, which I stopped liking at the age of ten or so.

I hate song titles that are long for the sake of it, and attempt to appear kooky and profound.

I also hate those duets married musicians do when they stare and smile at each-other in that diabetes-inducing way through the whole song.

And rap songs that make tenuous and nonsensical references to films/songs/video-games/political movements/branded food items and then compare themselves to said items through one description that they apparently have in common.

I know it's used for emphasis, but I still get annoyed anytime a rapper rhymes a word with the same exact word in the next line. It just can't help but sounding lazy and dumb.

Agreed, but not just in rap. Anywhere I hear it.

Also, I agree with he above who said pop punk vocals.

Yes! Also, people who rhyme the same syllable line after line. 99% of the time that just sounds supid an unimaginative to me.

A lyric I hate from an album I love:

"I would drown all these crying babies, if I knew that their mothers wouldn't cry".

- The worst lyric ever, by Vinnie Accardi.
