look up any word, like cunt:
 
1.
People will say that some music isn't "real music" simply because it does not suit their tastes. When in reality, if it's music it's music. Many people say that electronic dance music, rap, and hip hop aren't real forms of music.
Dude, that techno isn't real music, neither is rap.

Is any music in general. Songs, rhythm, whistling, etc.

Anything can be music, only narrow-minded pricks claim one genre is "Real Music".
Random Youtube Prick:

Man this song is real music.

Another Youtuber: Really? Then the people from Ancient Greece didn't know s*** if this is what represents "art".

n.Music made that that has no help of hot music video girls, implants, gimmicks, voice enhancers, steroids, or repeating a single lyric over and over because your big name and street cred will automatically make anyone buy your crappy rap music no matter how much it sucks and love it in fear of being socially rejected despite the fact that your early career as a free styler was a million times more inventive and would have impressed those haters at the FCC somehow and saved white people across the world a lot of time typing up angry letters, posts, dictionary inserts, etc.

Any music is real music, ANY! That includes jessica simpson or Slipknot, even though you dont like a band doesnt mean it isn't real music. The term is usualy used by people who are angry at other people for their opinions regarding music.
Jon- I like My Chemical Romance

Tommy- what are you gay? go listen to some real music like Tool.

Jon- Your an asshole, it's all real music. You just cant tell the difference between fact and opinion.

Tommy- I see so clearly now! my opinions arent fact, there just what i think! I will no longer be pissed when someone else shows that they are different from me!

Most often this term is used by people who think what they listen to is "real music" just because it is old or underground. In reality, half the bands they listen to suck just as bad as anything on MTV.
Just because the Sex Pistols are old, doesn't mean they are good.

A term used by many people who get opinion confused with fact. Mostly used when a person has an extreme dislike for a certain type of music or song. Thus, causing extreme ignorance making them believe that their opinions dominate everyone elses, by using the term "real music".
Guy: That crap you listen to aint real music!

Me: Go learn what "opinion" means dumbass and then we can talk about music.

*A term that teenagers throw out far too often, the first signs of music snobbery as it immediately entails Hip-hop/dance genres being classed as ''crap music''

**Music that has been played in reality & thus is real music rather than notes on sheets.
Teenager: God this generation sucks for music, i wish i was born in the 70s when they had brilliant rock music everywhere, it was all real music

Me: You are aware every generation has whats known as the ''20 year rule'' where the teenagers wish they were born 20 years ago? & that you'd hate the chart music back then as it consisted of Donny Osmond and other corporate made one hit wonders with the odd exception of good bands, just like today

Teenager: Nuh uh it was all stairway to heaven, & pink floyd & The Doors & ehh bach, really cool bands back in the 70s
