Love, hate relationship with music

There is music we love, and there is music we hate. Everybody has a band, rapper, or singer he or she absolutely can’t stand. Music would be boring without the awful- sounding musicians we love to make fun of.
Even the best of musicians have a song someone can’t stand. No artist can be loved by everybody.
Music wouldn’t be good without the songs that are bad.
There is even a Web site dedicated to bad music.
Bad music can come from any of the number of genres and styles out there today.
Taste in music varies. Someone’s least favorite song can be another’s favorite.
There’s no set explanation to what makes music bad or good.
It’s totally up to the listener, and every listener is different.
An older generation of listeners may grit their teeth and shake their heads at the music out today, while a younger generation may sleep away the sounds of an older generation.
Some people I know dislike certain rap artists because their favorite rapper has a beef with that certain artist. That’s stupid!
People should love or hate a song based on their own views of that song, not anyone else’s.
Personally it’s all about the love or the hate for the sound, and how that song makes you feel. Who cares what anyone else thinks?
Music would suck if everyone liked every song.
There has to be music we hate as well as music we love to keep the balance.
