95% of rap muisc, 95% of rock, 95% of jazz, 95% of electronic/techno, 95% of reggae, 95% of blues, 95% of folk, 95% of pop, 95% of R&B, 95% of religious, and 99.999999% of country. All genres are far larger than most people think. You may think you like a genre, but you really only like a small part of it - the stuff that's not crap. For every one song you like there's roughly 19 that you hate in that broad genre, unless you're listening to country, then there's a far greater number that you won't like.
-Hey, turn it to 95.7 THE ROCK.
-WTF I hate this awful music... fucking urban-metro-punk-rock-metal-thrash mix, (3 minutes later) WTF I hate Death Metal, WTF (3 minutes later), WTF (...), WTF (...), WTF!!! *click* There's nothing on today.
-Just go buy some shit you like.
-Yeah. Fuck this shit.
Green Day is one of the biggest definitions of awful music. People say they are sell outs, which isn't really true. They have always sucked. But, they did manage to sell out with American Idiot I guess. They wanted to make people believe they actually gave a shit about politics, and make kids feel like "grown ups" because they were involved in politics too. Bullshit. But, I guess they succeeded, which when you think about is no surprise, considering the country is made up of mostly dumbass.
Plus, they are AWFUL mucisians. I play guitar, drums, and bass. Within a week, I could play any Green Day song I listened to. And their lyrics? "I walk this empty street, on the boulevard of broken dreams". I mean, come on people, it doesn't get much worse than that. And yes, their name did come from smoking pot all day long. In an interview with The Rolling Stone, they said it themselves.
Green Day belongs in an anus.
Yes, they are the true definition of awful music.
