2. ive realized that have heart's lyrics are ridiculously cheesy.
3. blacklisted is overrated and boring
Quote by shakin'cakes
First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

Ok

For me:
I listen to metal and rock (as everyone here on UG)
but i guess my big controversy is that I really hate everything mainstream mainly because the people listening, so therefore I will listen to anything that will piss the mainstream jerks of =D

Maybe I don't actually like the worst kinds of black and death metal but hell, i'll put on a song or two just be an ass =)

I listen to everything from deicide and morbid angel to hanson and mcfly.
And I'll damn well carry on to do so.
But still, it's always fun to drown out chavvy music off their phones with cannibal corpse on the met or bus

Yes..
But not all mainstream music is a dead fish


true, I generalized when i said everything, there's some good stuff out there, but mainly I dislike the stuff that popular today.
#10
1. I like Ignite a lot.
2. I think Shipwreck are boring and overrated.
3. Mute Math is one of the best bands I have ever seen live.
#12
1. Killswitch Engage is a good band and only get a bad rep because every ****ty metalcore band copies what they did on their second album.

2. Post "My War" Black Flag is much better than pre "My War."

3. I don't like Bad Brains or Gorilla Biscuits.

4. Minor Threat is my least favorite Ian MacKaye band.
#13
1. Black Flag are over rated (music, not influence wise)
2. Terror are pretty good.
3. The new BTBAM sucks.
4. The original self titled Killswitch Engage album has a handful of good tracks.
5. Agnostic Front and Madball are also pretty cool.
6. There are only about five good metalcore bands.
#14
1. I have never REALLY attempted to listen to Black Flag
2. Most tough-guy sounds exactly the same
3. Sound clips are awesome but Graf Orlock might be pushing it
4. Original sounding hardcore is difficult to write
5. Bass is the linchpin o' hardcore
6. Fadeouts (decrescendos, if you will) are one of the best musical devices
7. I enjoy Deathcore a lot
8. Bluegrass takes mad skill
9. There would be joyous world riots if American Nightmare reunited
10. Shipwrecks older stuff was much better
11. A lot o' good bands are getting progressively unappealing
12. Skrammy Skrammz is the most passionate beautiful form of music know to man
#15
1. Melodic Hardcore gets boring, very quickly. Yes, even Ruiner. Actually this shouldn't really be controversial.
2. I actually like Black Flag more when Keith Morris was singing. It's subject to change every now and then though.
3. Unbrokens 'Life Love Regret' is awful.
4. I thought The Movielife's 'This Time Next Year' was dire.
5. I think Zao is good.
6. The covers American Nightmare did were absolute rubbish.

I don't know about controversial but there you go.
rites of nothing.

I really liked the Dead and Gone cover, but that is probably because i never listened to the orignial
#17
the new bands that are coming out that are just rehases of old school hardcore bands are just as much a trend as deathcore

#19
1. i really dont like any oldschool / traditional / whatever hardcore
2. i find that most music sounds like a direct rip of most other music (pretty agreeable i guess?)
3. technical music is boring
4. screaming is stupid...unless you can mix in some singing too, then it works.
5. classic rock was/is just an excuse to get high


overstating most points at least a bit. whatever.
#21
I think thrash metal is for pussies
Deathcore/metalcore is the most overrated genre in metal
90% of deathcore bands sound the same
#22
*I don't like Black Sabbath, The Beatle or almost all older music
*I don't like or listen to most older hardcore except Gorilla Biscuits, although I respect them.
*Converge still doesn't do anything for me
*Brand New is the best band on the face of the earth
*BTBAM's "Colors" is just boring
*Every Fear Before The March Of Flames cd is amazing
*Tough guy hardcore sucks
*Boysetsfire was never good
*Ska music rules
*Justin Timberlake is awesome
*I found myself listening to Linkin Park's ReAnimation last night for all the rap parts.
*Panic At The Disco is not that bad, it's just all these scene kids and annoying girls make them hard to like
*I can still listen to Senses Fail for nostalgia reasons.
*I don't like metal.
*Breakdowns suck 97% of the time.
#24

-My Bloody Valentine + Boris > all hardcore bands except AN/GUTG, Converge, and Gorilla Biscuits
-Tegan and Sara is not catchy, it's ****ing horrible
-Animal Collective is straight garbage

-all Hatebreed other than SITDOD sucks
-My War is the best Black Flag
-Zao is amazing, even their generic later stuff

I like bands with girlier singers better than bands with heavy screaming vocals and tons of originality
Death Metal and Deathcore are the most retarded genres ever (with the exception of like 2 or 3 bands)
#27
Quote by waldorphPRS41
*Agreed about Botch being overrated.
*Set Your Goals was never good to me.
*Miss Machine was Dillinger Escape Plan's best cd.

Dillinger Escape Plan annoys the **** out of me
I enjoy the occasional breakdown
Old JFaC>New
Pop-Punk should not be mixed with hardcore
"Progressive" metal blows
I dont like Pantera
Deathcore is good, the 80% of it that just thinks tremelo and breakdowns=good music just ruin it

I was never able to listen to AC/DC and enjoy it

I love Hellogoodbye and Senses Fail

I like Pop-punk

-Most non-melodic death metal is boring
-Black metal is as cheesy as **** and really annoying

I agree!
Especially with the first. I love so many anime tracks, if only our pop music was as good as their's ):

i liek a combined 3-4 rob zombie and white zombie songs, and i dont like about 90% of bands with threads started about them in the hardcore forum.

edit:
I think Eddie Vedder is a douchebag and his solo stuff is even worse than Pearl Jam
Oldschool hardcore is now the "in" thing
Meshuggah is one of my all time favorites
Technical metal and harcore is played out
Deathcore is played out
Stone Temple Pilots suck, Scott Weiland is a douchebag
Nirvana is prententious IMO


..ill think of more later

off topic edit:

ace ventura 2 is one of the best movies
people who wear kangol hats are douchebags/assholes
