Why all the pop music hate?

I dunno, seems like "pop music" is thrown around as a way to insult bands or make fun of them these days, particularly on UG. I really like pop music, it makes me happy. I like catchy songs. Obviously I get that it's not for everyone and you shouldn't listen if you don't like it or you hate it, whatever. that's fine. I just don't know why it's used as a dirty word.
I mean like in the "My Chemical Romance breakup" news article all the comments are "bluh bluh they were a shitty pop band screw them." Like yeah, they were pop influenced, obviously. That doesn't make them bad. Pop isn't bad. Maybe it's just not your thing.

This.
Most people enjoy the odd bit of pop music. That's why it's called pop.

No thanks sounds like a hellish place.
also the only thing "metal" that I really like is BTBAM and I feel like their response will be "hipster fag that's not metal that's trash compared to wjiaofehfwe".

The thing is though, I made similar comments in the Pit a few years ago and got waaaaaay different responses than the pit is giving me now. Which makes me happy. Good on you, pit.

the BTBAM thread was actually just moved from the hardcore forum to the metal forum

almost all of the metal regs hate BTBAM and can't stand that it's so active

I guess part of it would be because of the artist themselves. Their celebrity status goes up and suddenly they're all over TV making the media talk about things no one should care about, (but does) getting their own perfume/cologne, interviews, you know. All that stuff.

It's clear that's most associated with pop artist nowadays than any other genre. From an outside perspective (like, not liking pop or everything the media covers about them), that's probably viewed as a big negative.

And that, my dear boy, is probably why.
...Or my guess anyways.
