Do you think you have any music opinion(s) that could be considered unpopular or even 'controversial'?

I don't like Adele and don't think she is a very good singer - often out of tune and shouty.

And I actually think Britney can sing really well! Very controversial

Lady GaGa is crap.
Her music is crap, all of it.
She looks awful all the time, in fact I can't even look at her... she's repulsive.

Wish her music career would crash and burn.

Bruno Mars and Gaga are overrated and have uninspiring material, Katy Perry simply cannot sing and Lord only knows what Pixie Lott did to get a recording contract...

Lady Gaga has all the originality of a photocopier

Adele isn't a very good singer

Many of the people in the industry expressing grief over Whitney Houston probably wouldn't have given her the time of day a week before her death.

I hate Adele, Kylie, Prince, JLo and Beyoncé.

Kylie has lasted so long only because the majority of the public wouldn't know good music if it stared back at them from a mirror.

Just because a single becomes a chart topper doesn't make it good.

The Bonnie Tyler hit 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart' is a boring slice of overblown over emotional crap.

The Ultravox hit 'Vienna' is just a mass of pretentious overindulgence.

I really want to like Nicki Minaj but I think her songs are appallingly bad.

I generally like Adele but the way she sings the word "you" on SLY in the chorus sounds ear-splittingly awful to me and almost ruins the song.

I don't think Rebecca Black's Friday is as horrific as made out to be.

Here's an opinion: there's a 48 page thread out there with the same / similar title. The OP could have checked before starting another thread.

Still, not as bad as the idiots that keep starting "what's your favourite song?" threads as if no-one on this forum has ever asked that question before. Duh.

The title of the thread is not controversial music opinions.

*applauds*

Ok here are some of mine:

I think Coldplay are a very overrated band. Their songs are slow and boring and Chris Martin is a terrible singer.

I detest boybands. In rock bands, the first talent is singing and the second talent is playing an instrument. In boybands, the first talent is singing and the second talent is being so "fit" that there will be saliva drooling out of every girl's mouth in the country. I wonder if they weren't so "fit" would they have as many fans?

I don't really care much for Led Zeppelin. I've listened to their first two albums and nothing has really grabbed me.

Yoko Ono is one of the worlds best artists.
Anastacia has one of the best female voices of our time.

Both seem obvious to me but are always unpopular.

I quite like One Direction. Witty ditties of easy listening niceness. The boys are pretty to look at too. Controversially I'm way too old to be a fan.....

Rihanna would sound much better if she didn't sing down her nose and miss every note by a semi-tone.

I wouldn't have fancied any of them in a million years when I was their target audience.

I really can't see the attraction.

They are horribly overexposed at the moment, too.

Agreed.

due to her massive amount of fans I dont think we're gonna get rid of her for a while.

What I especially loathe about her is her pretentiousness. This combined with an over inflated opinion of her song writing talents (her last album wasnt up to much song writing wise)

Her videos and pronouncements are just pretentious in an embarrassing, 6th former kinda way. Shes not actually "deep" at all. She spouts the kinda things many people have been saying for decades, yet her fans hang on every word asif shes some great innovator.

I guess that in many cases this is cos theyre very young and arent aware of the contributions of others. This doesnt excuse her older fans though (the over 25's)

I prefer Paloma Faith to Adele!

I too, thought that Rebecca Blacks FRiday wasnt as horrendous as people made out. Perfectly acceptable tacky bubble gum crap pop song IMO, no worse than a lot of stuff in the charts.

Lana del Ray and Christina Perri are just dirgy and dull

Florence Welsh sings like a cat being tortured, I just want to turn off the music whenever I hear her, dont get the appeal AT ALL!
