Seriously, I always see people use "mainstream" on this site as a type of insult. What's wrong with being mainstream? Not every band has to be incredibly skilled or every musician has to play an instrument.

I happen to love a lot of songs I hear on the radio.

I love these songs and I feel like I'm the only one on this site who does.

I'm not looking to get flamed I'm just wondering why people seem to hate mainstrem music here.

Thoughts? Opinions?

I don't hate it. Too many people here pretend to hate it to seem cool.

This idea is retarded. Ask the general population and most of them won't like your kinda music (I'm guessing metal and other such genres.) Basically grow up and stop looking down at others. You're not better than anyone else.

I like Muse, they don't really count though since I live in America. I've heard that they're pretty mainstream in Europe though.
all I ever wanted was to pick apart the day

i think alot of people here trash mainstream music because it isnt really guitar related.. as i would expect since we are on a guitar-site. But I like rap and hip-hop as well, so your not alone.

I'm just so sick of prejudice against any genres and the whole concept of "mainstream" music. Who gives a damn - music has talent whether you're composing, singing, playing an instrument etc and people who have an intense hatred of radio/pop music or whatever just really need to learn to appreciate it for what it is.

Categorization for the purposes of prejudice is pathetic.

if i hear a good song, i like it, no matter who it's by or if i hear it on the radio or not. and yes, there are a number of songs out on the radio these days that i do rather enjoy.
#19
i think people think its cool if they are centred to one style of music, like people say "im a metal guy!" oh so you can't listen to rap music or acoustic music? some people like saying they dont like the mainstream too, like being a fan of music that is unheard of is cool because no one else likes it, i personally will listen to anything with an open mind

it is sort of annoying, some people need to broaden their musical horizons

there are mainstream bands that i like
but its just mainstream all sounds the same to me.
you need to search for brilliant music, and give it time so you can digest it.
by listening to mainstream music you are listening to what big labels are telling you listen to.

I don't mind it at all. I actually have Taylor Swift's "Fearless" (album), which I listen to regularly, along with the music that many here listen to. I'm not huge on hip-hop, but dismissing mainstream music as crap is just ridiculous. Pop is catchy and generally pretty entertaining.

I actually love a lot of mainstream music. I love Lily Allen, Take That, Leona Lewis, Robbie Williams and loads of other artists that would be considered "mainstream." I'll listen to any artist if they write good songs, it doesn't matter whether it's "mainstream" or not.

Mainstream music isn't always bad. It's just that bad music is often mainstream.

I like mainstream music that has guitar, bass, and drums in it. Im assuming everyone on UG does too.

I like the Killers, Mayday Parade, All American Rejects and Foo Fighters. They're pretty mainstream I think. Otherwise I don't really pay attention to what people currently like.

Skillet and Decyfer Down are 2 of my most favorite bands and they could be considered mainstream, especially Skillet's new CD.

I don't hate mainstream music. I hate music that is written so that the writers/band will become mainstream. If you write a song that gets a ton of radio airplay because you genuinely liked the song and it came from what was in your head, I respect you even though I might still hate the song. If you write a song that gets a ton of radio airplay because you wanted to write a song that got radio airplay, I have absolutely no respect for you whatsoever.
