    "Top 3 worst music" I agree with you, because of religious reasons (because they're banned in Islam).

    All EDM and country music is trash, change my mind.

    This is probably a shitpost, but whatever, I'm gonna start my rant.

    Nearly all of EDM sounds the same, with their generic, unexciting beat drops, in addition to boring lyrics at best, cringy at worst. The ones without lyrics belong strictly to EDM festivals, and if you are straight-up listening to EDM with no lyrics, you are probably one of those weird kids that listens to anime soundtracks on your way to school in the bus.

    Modern country is over-glorified pop music.

    Both fans and artists of 'classic' country music tend to be uneducated, and say things like "I need to warsh my hands!" People of this group probably grew up in the rural United States or are wanna-be hillbillies. Back in high school, we had what we called "hillbilly row"; essentially, it was a line of spots in the parking lot where the hillbillies parked their lift-kitted trucks. Every member of the hillbilly society has one of these trucks. In addition, they have a uniform, which is required to be worn if you are a member. You must wear: jeans, camouflage boots, a T-shirt (preferably neon orange or camouflage), and a camouflage hat. In addition, a can of chewing tobacco is required in the back-right pocket of your jeans.

    I agree that pop is trash.

    I've never heard of vapor-wave until now. It is interesting, I will give it that.

    I will say, that not all modern hip-hop is trash. I say this as someone who used to be anti-modern hip-hop and assumed everything out is mumble-rap. I think that there has sort-of been a lull in the hip-hop community since the decline of 50 Cent, G-Unit, and the Game (probably around 2006-2012). I'd almost compare it to post-Doggystyle times, up until Dr. Dre's 2001 (probably around 1994-1999). I think it started to pick-up again in 2012 or 2013 with Kendrick Lamar's first album under Aftermath. Personally, I think there have been a lot more highlights in recent years compared to the post-50 Cent lull. Think Anderson .Paak, Kendrick Lamar, reformed Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Brockhampton, Joyner Lucas, etc. I could probably go on. Hip-hop is more diverse than ever. I'm sure one could find just about anything. On the other hand, they gotta go through more artists and content to find their exact taste, which I suppose could be viewed as a downside to the increased variety and diversity of modern hip-hop.

    Anyways, rant over.

    EDM, yes i agree, cheesy lyrics which i generally hate, and the drops, well similar at best but some decent songs do arise from time to time. EDM in general has been influenced by pop too much.
    This is comming from someone who loves hardcore and hardstyle and re discovering trance, which was big for me during childhood as my dad is huge on trance. Trance is all about the atmosphere and euphoric energy it creates, i'm referring to 2000 - 2010 before it pretty much died off and got popularised.
    I cannot even explain the nostalgia it creates. from travelling across central Australia, endless red flats with a cloudless sky, camping and fishing in one of the hundreds isolated beaches along the coast, "yalata beach" in particular. or hiking along the southern highlands, All while having one of my dads hundreds (yes hundreds) of albums & songs playing on a little speaker.
    Why i love hardstyle & hardcore you may wonder? the bpm, kicks and the insane energy it creates, for me anyways.
    EDM as a whole is such a big genre aswell and honestly wouldn't have a idea how many sub genres there are.

    I prefer my "edm" if you would even call it that without lyrics because the lyrics it dose contain is basic and stupid and alot of the older stuff trance, hardstyle etc rarely had lyrics.

    Vaporwave i hate because of its retro synths and sloowww speed.

    Rap, i liked a small section of it in school, especially eminem. this would've been around 2010. i was late on the rap scene. i liked it because he would tell true storys in his songs, now, hes fallen off imo.
    the biggest problem i have about rap is the lyrics are silly. bitches, hoes, money drugs and murder, one or more in alot of rap now days and alot of mumble rap too.
    Not to mention they all use the same style of "beat" typical 808, hi- hats (closed or open) and a snare. almost as simple as house music. It is nice to listen to a few hip hop tracks that use a more trap like beat with a little bit of another genre like dubstep or hard trap.
    I'm fairly limited on the hip hop scene nowdays and this is all based on the few tracks i would find on youtube every here and there i'm quite passive on it and would be interested to hear some newer stuff that's not total shit.
    I also feel pop has infected hip hop massively now too. i swear pop is worse the aids & and corona virus.

    I see where you are coming from. I do have some recommendations for newer hip-hop songs.

    I really think you would like Anderson .Paak. He has a half soul, half rap kinda thing. Think Nate Dogg. Some songs I would recommend by him are:
    - What Can We Do? feat. Nate Dogg
    - Bubblin’
    - Make It Better feat. Smokey Robinson
    - Come Down
    If you just want some music to vibe to, Anderson is your guy. I find myself listening to this quite a bit personally:


    I also think you would appreciate Saturation-era Brockhampton. They refer to themselves as a boy band, but personally, I think they are kinda like a modern version of Wutang (to an extent). Nowadays, they kinda lost the sound that initially captured me, since they had a fallout with one of their founding members. Think Ice Cube leaving NWA. They are more pop-ish nowadays, which is why I recommend Saturation-era songs by them. Check these out:
    - STUPID
    - GUMMY
    - STAR
    - GOLD
    Some of their songs have a classic West Coast vibe with their use of the “California whistle”, especially STUPID and GUMMY.

    Both artists listed are pretty diverse in their own right. Even if you don’t like the songs I listed you could probably find something in their catalog that you do like. These guys also aren’t old-school Eminem, but if you want something different from the popular offerings of today, these guys are definitely very different.

    "mUMBle CrAP" is not existing. it is called trap and its a rap genre that is focused more on sound beats and catchy hooks rather then lyrics. Just because its more mainstream than "lyrical" rap doesnt mean rap is this. Kendrick, Denzel curry, joey baddass, ab soul, kanye, jay z, earl, tyler, danny brown, big krit, pusha t, freddie gibs, asap rocky and many more have dropped some amazing albums of storytelling and bars over the last 10 years while some of them are more known like kendrick most of them are still underground. Sometimes i want to listen to beautiful rap songs i will listen to them but if u wanna turn up or u with friends or some shit u will bump carti/future/migos and u dont really care bout lyrics.
    ill give u some of the best albums of 2010s and if u wanna get into hip hop u should listen to them
    Kanye west- my beatiful dark twisted fantasy, life of pablo, yeezus
    kendrick lamar- to pimp a butterfly , good kid mad city, damn
    j cole - 2014 forrest hills drive
    pusha t - daytona
    denzel curry - taboo, imperial
    tyler the creator flower boy
    danny brown - atrocity exhibition
    ab soul - control system
    freddie gibs - bandana, pinata

    enjoy if u decide to listen to any of those

    Trap =/= mumble rap. Mumble rap does exist lol. There is a huge different between artists like 21 Savage and Gucci Mane versus Lil Pump and Young Thug. I'd classify mumble rap as a sub-genre of trap. My definition is kind of subjective, but I'd say trap is mumble rap if it meets two of these three conditions:
    • The song originated from SoundCloud or the artist got their big break-through on it.
    • The artist relies on auto-tune.
    • The artist has 'Lil' or 'Young' in their name.
    Also, trap isn't based on the beats and catchy hooks. It originates from the term 'trap house', which is a house where drugs get sold. Gucci Mane, considered one of the founding fathers of trap, named his debut album Trap House. It's kind of like Atlanta's version of gangster rap. All mumble rap is trap, but not all trap is mumble rap. Gucci Mane's stuff, especially his older stuff, sounds more similar to the Dirty South-type (like Ludacris) music of the late-90's and early 00's than mumble rap.

    Also, I like a lot of your album choices. A lot of them are closer to the roots of rap, which I can appreciate.

    You all need to realise something like this is opinion-based. Arguing about it is like filling a leaking bucket with water: pointless.
