Are there any songs, bands, or musicians that make you homicidal when you hear them?

Asked by holden (8447points) November 23rd, 2009

There are some songs on the radio that make me pop a blood vessel as soon as I hear them. “You found me” by the Fray, anything by Taylor Swift or Nickelback, and “Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas are some of them. What songs grate on you?

anything on the country station

Anything whiny or emo-sounding. Anything screamo. As soon as I hear that “demonic 12-year-old boy” voice like in Hawthorne Heights or whatever, I feel slightly homicidal. Bleh. Also really hardcore metal or death metal music that just has a grating voice that sounds like someone with throat-cancer singing. Not too big of a fan of Nickelback either, just because I hate that voice and the music is nothing special. I also hate all those voices that just imitate Pearl Jam like Creed.

As for Boom Boom Pow, I love that song for many reasons, one of which is highly private. :)

@holden Although I try to stay away from being negative, I think I want to indulge in this for just a bit. Heres my list of ear bleeds:
Anything country and especially Carrie Underwood and her stupid cheating song
Lil Wayne
Miley Cyrus
And especially Britney Spear’s “Toxic” which blisters my ears everytime I hear it.
And pretty much all rap, except for a few rare exceptions, and Americana music

Tool. And I’m told that I’m totally crazy for this.

That “hot gurlllz” song. The only lyrics are hot gurllz and yeah. Also, that song were the female singers says “I want to take a ride on your disco stick” I think it was Lady Gaga

holden's avatar

oh yeah! I forgot Lady Gaga. Unless Eric Cartman is covering her.

nayeight's avatar

Zooey Deschanel. Anytime that Cotton commercial comes on I have to mute it because if I hear her voice again I’m afraid my ears might bleed.

Nickelback, Daughtry, Creed, Hinder…. I think you can see where i’m going with this. Not only do they all sound the same, but they all suck really bad.

troubleinharlem's avatar

Country and Metal. And Techno.

and anything that’s a spawn of Disney.

Fernspider's avatar

Chris Brown & Lady Gaga – Argh

@amnorvend – all hail Tool, long live Tool.

jeanna's avatar

@nayeight Mad lurve for you regarding that damn cotton commercial! I loathe it.

Just about anything that is labeled as pop or country. I am also so fucking sick of hearing about Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, etc. Ugh. What is wrong with people?

@Rachienz I lurve Tool. They make me homicidal in a good way.

Taylor Swift.

I wish she’s go back to the planet she came from.

sebastian_von_tulu's avatar

As far as I can tell, anything that is in the charts right now.
I am forced to listen to the radio while at work and almost everything sounds like garbage to me. Being at work probably doesn’t help that.

FishGutsDale's avatar

@holden yeah paris hilton released a song or album…garbage. I’d link to it but do not want to promote it. Youtube will have it should you wish to damage your soul.

reacting_acid's avatar

I think I remember when Paris Hiltons song came out on the radio. I blew milk out of my nose. Yeah good times…

Tink's avatar

Whenever the Jonas Brothers pop out anywhere I want to cut my ears off. There is also Miley/Hannah, Demi Lovato, and Justin Beiber bleck! Any freaken Rap/Hip hop or Disney promoted artists really urk me.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Any song, jokey or not, that goes nuts with the Auto Tune on purpose, and that includes the first one, Cher’s Believe. Although the Know Your Meme video about it is pretty funny.

reacting_acid's avatar

@Tink1113 You’re right. They are awful! Especially Demi Lovato. Whenever she comes on I want to kill myself.

Tink's avatar

@reacting_acid I know right?! You cannot be a “cool” and respected by all teenage artist when you are promoted by Disney, c’mon.

DominicX's avatar


There. I said it.

Damn_Tony's avatar

Daughtry, Skillet, Sublime, and Nickleback.

BluRhino's avatar

Whoever it is that did this bastardization….

MacBean's avatar

Bob fucking Dylan. Stick to writing, Bob. Your voice makes me want to rupture my eardrums.

faye's avatar

The song that advertises the tv show ‘weeds’.

Val123's avatar

Adam Lambert

jaketheripper's avatar

@MacBean bite your tongue…

asmonet's avatar

@MacBean: Don’t listen to him. We’ll sing our own Dylan songs and be glorious.

noaconstrictor's avatar

@amnorvend tool. yes. that guys voice grates my nerves like no one else. and their songs are sooo dull at the same time.

avvooooooo's avatar

OMG, Adam Lambert is the worst!

sjmc1989's avatar

JUST FOR YOU! @MacBean No but seriously the first time I heard a song by him I thought it was a joke. As I listened to more songs I fell in love! :) I think Bob Dylan is one of those singers you either absolutely love or loathe.

sjmc1989's avatar

I agree with @sebastian_von_tulu I don’t listen to anything thats on the radio or on T.V. I play my iPod because it plays all of my most favorite songs!

evegrimm's avatar

Philip Glass‘s music makes me go crazy.

Also, Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten. Not a bad song in and of itself, but for a few months, it was played at exactly the same time every day—when my alarm went off. Damn radio station.

Plain White T’s Hey There Delilah had a similar impact on my brain. Grr…

And finally, Kings of Leon. The radio station I used to listen to insisted on playing them at least once every thirty minutes. Drove me batty. :D

Val123's avatar

@sjmc1989 I never got Bob Dylan. OR the Stones. I still think almost anyone who says the did were just sucking up…. BUT, in response to your next comment, @sjmc1989 where did you first hear your favorite songs, if not on radio or TV?

MacBean's avatar

@sjmc1989: lol4rl. Thanks. I can stand him for a minute or so. Just can’t make it through a whole song.

mcbealer's avatar

pretty much most country music… well except for some Johnny Cash

tb1570's avatar

Yeah, I’ll have to throw my hat in with the crowd who answered Britney Spears, though when I hear her songs, it only makes me want her to die, not anybody else. Seriously, I’d rather punch that girl in the face than have sex with her! There, I said it! Out loud!

But the parody of her in The Onion Movie was absolutely fanatstic! And the songs were great as well! Take me from Behind indeed!!

Val123's avatar

Who’s Brittney Spears?

knitfroggy's avatar

Jethro Tull makes me insane! Rock flute just isn’t for me. Unfortunately it’s one of my husband’s favorite bands. He blares it from the basement when he is on his computer and after about 30 minutes I’m pretty much ready to kill him.

MacBean's avatar

I like most country music, but here are a few examples of songs that make me want to punch small helpless things:

Kellie Pickler – Things That Never Cross A Man’s Mind lyrics | listen
Craig Morgan – International Harvester lyrics | listen
Joe Nichols – Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off lyrics | listen
Trace Adkins – Honky Tonk Badonkadonk lyrics | listen
Carrie Underwood – Jesus Take the Wheel lyrics | listen
Carrie Underwood – Before He Cheats lyrics | listen
Steve Azar – I Don’t Have to Be Me (Til Monday) lyrics | listen
And I hate Toby Keith in general, but I like this song even less than his “patriotic” idiocy:

Toby Keith – She Never Cried in Front of Me lyrics | listen

Tink's avatar

I like Taylor Swift.

forestGeek's avatar

Any song that has that really annoying synthesized electronic voice effect that’s being overused on so much pop/hip-hop music these days…ugh, it’s absolute crap, has no artistic merit whatsoever, and just plain pisses me off!

mcbealer's avatar

@forestGeek ~ how high is your blood pressure now? ;)

forestGeek's avatar

@mcbealer – fine, thanks to the fact that I haven’t been listening to crappy radio for a while…though I think it went up just writing about that crappy music. And I’m sure I’m sure it’s go way up over the upcoming holiday weekend. Very hard to avoid…

Val123's avatar

Rolling Stones.

noodle_poodle's avatar
