Least favorite tropes in music

this one should be easy to understand
1Five Finger Death Punch
And Justice for None


edgy tough-guy bullshit. it's a hell of a lot more badass to open up when you're in dire need of help and let yourself be vulnerable. at least if i listen to faux-inspirational stuff it's at least TRYING to send a positive message, as hackneyed and fake as it may feel. but if toxic masculine crap like this could stop being such a mainstay that'd be nice
2Tom MacDonald
Deathreats


force-fed political statements from angles that don't make any sense. if you want to make a statement that's fine but maybe don't be a tom macdonald or eric july about it please, that's all. and yeah aaron lewis can fuck right off too with that racism anthem he dropped
3Gift Giver
White Devil


being "2heavy4u" for the sake of it while sacrificing actual good songwriting because nerds will eat it up anyway
4Rings of Saturn
Lugal Ki En


being more concerned about how many notes you can play as fast as you can than actually coming up with good songwriting. also applies to cheesy power metal bands like dragonforce
5Owl City
Ocean Eyes


this is mostly just a dig at this project more than anything but, taking every single cue from another popular artist to the point of near-plagiarism and then sucking every ounce of emotion and heart out of it to make it sound like a soulless piece of shit carbon copy from an assembly line
6Dance Gavin Dance
Mothership


being more invested in being total goofballs than making your music not sound like every element clashes with eachother, periphery may be goofy but they still release quality music, and it's even more sad because this is just a recent thing with DGD, Acceptance Speech was quality but everything post-IG just doesn't click at all.
7Disturbed
Immortalized


any usage of that hack Kevin Churko in the production booth.
