I know David Bowie and you Lady GaGa are no David Bowie.

I thought of more music that I absolutely detest: classical. I refer to it as "Rhett repellent."

I own thousands and thousands of records. None of them are classical. I work for a company that has three radio stations that I announce on. One is classical. I never, ever listen to it. At work, I turn it down all the way so I can't hear it. As long as the silence alarm doesn't go off, I know it's on the air.

I get more out of two and a half minutes of Little Richard singing "Lucille" than I do from anything anyone wrote prior to 1900. I can't help it.

Jazz doesn't do anything for me, either. Nor does easy listening. Or new age (which rhymes with "sewage").

John Lennon said "I have become my parents. I have my period and I stick with it. I like rock and roll, man. I don't like much else." The same goes for me.

With this one, for the same reasons all my friends seem to love it I find myself sawing at my wrist if there's a sharp object in my proximity. For some reason it just grates on me at every level.

the only similarities between lady gaga and david bowie is her sexual ambiguity and her overly theatric music videos and schpeels. bowie practically invented the theatrical music video. before that a lot music videos were just a band singing their song.

I really hate rap, r&b, "hip hop" or whatever they've changed the name to these days. I don't like a lot of music, but rap is by far the worst. Country would be a close second, followed by jazz and blues. I'm not a big fan of popular music at all, though sometimes I hate songs just because of the people who listen them.

I suppose Little Richard was the very first but David Bowie perfected it.

I hate any music that has a lot of swearing, racism or sexism in it. So I guess that covers most tunes that are-literally-from this century. :)

They're called the Ting Tings. And yes they're awful. Except for "Great DJ"


As for me, yeah I dislike alot of Top 40 music unless a band I like suddenly winds up with a hit. Like "Uprising" by Muse. I don't understand why a five-minute song about government paranoia would appeal to Top 40 listeners, but whatever.

I also dislike country and rap except for the "alternative" variations of those genres.

Oh, and Owl City because he's basically making inferior knockoffs of songs by the Postal Service.

Progressive metal. It's usually good when mixed with other genres, but is terrible on its own. And Meshuggah. Everyone loves Meshuggah, for some reason.

99.9% of rap/hip-hop and about the same for country.

Most of today's Top 40 suck...
