Survey: How do you feel about genres of music?

Someone commented about the rapper being sued in Carolina for using the hockey teams logo in his song and using the jersey as a marketing tool for himself and the song he made. Most people are ignorant to other races/genres of music/cultures because they don’t know enough about it. They automatically throw them in a category of being as this person quoted:

“Rap music should be banned. It just promotes drug usage, violence on women, and just plain ghetto behavior. How can it even be called music anyways? No original music, just sampling of other peoples songs and silly rhymes”.

When he or she wrote this comment, they forgot about how Rock N Roll is a major influence of drugs, especially back in the day!!! Rap didn’t exist back in the 60′s and 70′s.

What is your take on these genres of music and do they influence you to do drugs or degrade women and etc….?

1. Rock
2. Rap/Hip Hop
3. R&B
4. Opera….yes Opera!
5. Country
6. Blues
7. Alternative
8. Grunge
9. Punk
10. Techno/House/Dance

If there are other genres you’d like to add, feel free.

Here’s how I feel:

1. Rock – lots of drugs and alcohol/women and revolutionary (Classic Rock)
2. Rap/Hip Hop – makes me want to dance, some make me angry
3. R&B – tells a story of love and heartache
4. Opera….yes Opera! – love stories, good for cleaning the house!
5. Country – no feeling at all, sounds annoying
6. Blues – sadness, depression, kinda like country but mellow
7. Alternative – makes me want to head bang and jump around. I like it.
8. Grunge – just plain old depression and dirty
9. Punk – loud and crazy kids
10. Techno/House/Dance – feels good. pulsating beat makes you move even if you don’t want to. Known in Gay clubs. Can be annoying if you hear it too much.

Thanks for answering, everyone! Remember, this is just an opinion survey. Please don’t take offense to it.
The quote are not my words.

My list is MY OPINION…

Overall, there IS something to be appreciated in every type of music and like I stated before, it’s my opinion so don’t be offensive……geez. Some people need to take a chill pill…

  1. A Wolf at the Door. Says:

    I don’t think any type of music influences people to be disrespectful toward women, do drugs or any other kind of behavior that would be considered “bad” in today’s society. People can and do make their own decisions. Music has nothing to do with it.

  5. ~*T!NK*~ Says:

    i’m guessing you’re a rap fan? lol here’s mine:

    1.rock (as in classic)-often roudy, drug use back in the day (some still, not always), motorcycles/bikers, talented guitarists.
    2.rap/hiphop-degrading to women (not always), materialistic values (diamonds, money, etc)
    3.R&B-soulful, talented singers, old and classic(aretha franklin, etc)
    4.opera-old fashioned and classic, though I don’t like it so much lol.
    5.country-”all american”
    6.blues-soulful and deep, about feelings
    7.alternative-creative and different, not mainstream (hence the name)
    8. grunge-kind of like alternative, only 90′s style
    9.punk-rebellious, loud, sort of like alternative only more extreme
    10.techno/house/dance- gives me headaches lol. some is good though.

    edit: you forgot one important one: Pop :D
    11.pop: popular and mainstream, was good when the original artists were active, until Britney and Nsync turned it into teeny bopper music. Michael Jackson is king and pop music died when he left us =’(.

  6. їмҒЯέЅђ...άη₫ үốự ąЯз...? Says:

    none of it influences me to do anything..
    i do what i want because i have my own mind and i dont need anybody to tell me how to feel or think

  7. Daphne Says:

    I don’t care about genres. I just care about whether a band is good or not.

  8. *~*~ i am so kewl ~*~* Says:

    Music doesn’t influence my actions one bit.

    Yes, it influences my emotions, such as listening to a slow quiet song can cause me to feel sadness or feel more thoughtful about things in my life, while a faster or angrier song can cause me to feel angered or worked up and energetic.

    I also don’t pay attention to genres. As far as I am concerned, music is emotion and art, and is not designed to be placed into a genre.

    If I am to listen to a “rock” song, I do not get a sudden impulse to go whore myself out for a vile of crack cocaine.

    Seeing as I do not classify music under genres, I cannot answer your list.

  9. PISS OUT MY @$$$$$$$ Says:

    I don’t really care but I guess people say my taste is Alternative. Makes you want to dance and is very fun and opinionated.
    Rock-Good
    Rap-Eww
    Hip hop-depends
    R&&B-Some
    Country-Meh it’s okay
    Blues-sadd
    Alternitive-same as you
    Grunge-meh
    Punk-Pretty damn good
    Techno-Fun but can get annoying

  10. Tigger Says:

    I LOve Rock and Roll

  11. Sawyer Says:

    Your category’s suck and after reading them, I’ve decided your opinions aren’t even worth considering.

    You just grouped all rock in to one category as if Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pantera could be compared.

    You’ve insulted music you don’t like because you have no respect for music itself. FYI. There is something to be appreciated in every genre of music. = )

  12. Mimas Says:

    I prefer rock, 80′s music, some techno.
    I’m not much of a fan about the other kinds of music.

  13. Auntie Em Says:

    I don’t think people should base their opinions on stereotypes. I don’t like rap, but that’s because I’m just not interested in it, not because of any stereotype of drugs or violence.

    1. I love Classic Rock. sure there may be drug promotion, but there are quite a few more of them about love, not drugs or alcohol or women. LOVE
    2. I’m not interested in rap or hip hop, thought there are a few songs that stand out.
    3.I haven’t heard much of R&B but it does seem to present love, which I enjoy. I like the types of music with a beautiful story.
    4. I never really liked opera. I have a hard time understanding it.
    5.I agree with you about the country stuff- no feeling
    6. blues- may be about sad stories, but they have really cool instruments and styles of playing.
    7. I don’t like alternative… gives me a headache and I can’t hear what they are saying.
    8. I’ve never heard of grunge…
    9. Too loud, and it seems to be a rip off of good, pure rock. Punk seems to me like a bunch of rock-wanna-be’s that think they know what rock is… and it’s not punk.
    10. I love techno/dance! I always feel like dancing, even though I’m usually trapped in a car.

    Well, that’s how I feel.

  14. closs19 Says:

    DOnt care aout them, there is too many of them, dont care for bands or arthest either, just songs, i go for songs, but dont ask me to name em please

  15. Jimmy Says:

    i pretty much like anything except rap.
    if you ask me it doesn’t require talent.

  16. rebel-without-a-cause Says:

    rock is the best genre ever and grunge, being a form of rock, is the best sub- genre ever.

    LONG LIVE GRUNGE

    Louis Vuitton Japan Co of Louis Vuitton Outlet Monogram Canvas LVJ Group K K has planned to start an online shopping service by the first quarter of 2007. This step will make Louis Vuitton the first major European luxury brand to start a full scale e-shopping in the country. Entry of Louis Vuitton brand on Japanese online market will be followed by entry of other luxury brands. Louis Vuitton launched an e-shopping system in France in October 2005, and in Britain, in January this year. It plans to extend Louis Vuitton Men Bags the system to Germany in April. Almost all available products of the company are sold on the Internet. Japanese consumers can presently view the brand’s official Web site for e-shopping without placing orders for now. Introduction of e-shopping in Japan next year, will facilitate consumers to go for Louis Vuitton products from bags to accessories, including new ranges, online. Care will be taken to avoid hurting business of existing shops by items that are to be sold on Internet. Well known brands are being cautious about online selling as they believe that it might hurt their image. But sales are picking up on Internet as many importers are selling brand products online. Louis Vuitton is going ahead with its own online shopping system as it does not want its image to be lowered by importers selling its products on the web.
