Day 9: What genre of music do you dislike?
I love most types of music, it has more to do with particular things I dislike in music than actual complete genres.
You will never catch me listening to Gaga even though she is much-loved by many alternative people. I frankly think her music style and message do not fit together. And I tire of people telling me I should like her because I’m weird… Um no. Listen to what you like, I don’t think trashing an artist is right, and I try my best to refrain from doing so. I don’t like it, that does not mean I’m an uncultured swine.
I don’t like twangy country music, it mostly just gets on my nerves. I cannot stand RnB except for Aaliyah (R.I.P).
I hate black metal. Yes I’m a metal-head too but really black metal? I also don’t like thrash much. That said, I love a good guitar and some powerful vocals.
I dislike Afrikaans music. And I can handle being told I’m not patriotic because the truth is I’m not. I defend people, animals, the environment and things I love, not a country with corrupt government officials. I o listen to some Kwaito occasionally and The Awakening and Silex. There are also some good bands out of SA (I’m not including the
Parlotones monotones in this lol!)
I cannot tolerate most pop music, and therefore do not listen to the radio. I scour YouTube and the internet for music I like. I’m almost permanently attached to my Ipod which plays a string of all sorts including rock, metal, rap, reggae, catchy tunes and of course goth or goth friendly music!
Goth Challenge Day 10: What do love/hate about the Subculture
- Being myself
- The music
- The clothes
- The sense of belonging
- The spooky things
- The literature I can indulge in without feeling like a nerd
- The creativity
- Most of the Cliche`s like cemeteries etc (See Day 4)
- The pressure to be gothier than the gothiest goth
- The people who think they know what goth is and then try to force their lack of knowledge on others
- The way many Goths are treated by some people due to a lack of understanding or knowledge of the subculture
