Re: why do people hate electronic music

What I've found is two main things that people tell me:

There is no singing ( There is sometimes foo ;o)
It's too repetitive.

When I first heard trance I thought what the hell this is way too repetitive, but now I like it, I guess I've adapted to it hah. But like the others said, don't get pissed from it, who cares if they hate it. We love it!

Also many people hear one crazy song that is very, "rave-y" if you will, and are like heh this is for nerds. They don't understand the branches and styles of electronic music, not everything is like the other songs. I dunno if Im making any sense so I will stop now..

Re: why do people hate electronic music

I kind of agree that Autechre isn't the first thing I would try to catch people's attention with, but I never understood the "cold, sterile" argument. Electronic music has always made me feel something in the way of an emotion, even songs that are intentionally "cold".

Also, I suppose the "image of a nerd on his computer" thing never bothered me because I don't imagine who made the song as I listen to it, in all honesty I don't give a shit what they look like.

Also, synesthesia gets in the way of that.

I'm looking at this from your average person's point of view. I don't understand why electronic music fans can't understand why most people don't like it, or why they care so much if those people do or not. You don't see metal heads complaining about how most people don't like metal, do you?

I also forgot to mention that Autechre is horribly repetitive. HORRIBLY.

I also forgot to mention that I own 5 of their albums.

I don't care if people like it or not, really, but sometimes I feel like I don't have anyone IRL to relate to.

Also, metal heads are more common than electronic music nerds, at least in my area, so I don't expect them to feel as though everyone hates their music.

Re: why do people hate electronic music

Seriously though, if you don't get why nobody listens to Boards Of Canada or Venetian Snares or whatever, then you don't know much about people. I know people that see all electronic music as variations on this:


Honestly with all the shit on the radio it's hard to blame them.

Re: why do people hate electronic music

+1 for "Put A Donk On it" ...lol...I watched a whole documentary about that and Blackout Crew at one point. Think it was on YouTube.

At OP: I don't even like 90% of electronic music I come across. Fact. I don't blame people who dislike 100% of it.

A LOT of pop music is very EDM sounding these days, as mentioned previously. But it all has a vocal focus. I'd bet if took a lot of top 40 tunes (discounting things with particularly catchy instrumental hooks) and stripped the vocals out a lot of people would probably say, "Oh, that is just that techno music".

Re: why do people hate electronic music

This post is soo right! I mean some people like EM and they say they don't when some1 ask, and claim to be into "guns and roses" or some "popularly accepted band". I just can't get it, they can say they like it all they would sure sound more open minded

Re: why do people hate electronic music

I agree very much with Relic who pointed out that a lot of stripped pop tunes sound very electronic. This was also true even back in the 80s.

Some people hate electronic music for 1 of two reasons:

1) lack of imagination on part of the composer
2) lack of imagination on part of the listener

You need enough of both for a winning combination.

Shamefully, people don't see it like that.

I believe people often see it as: it is made by computer, SO THEREFORE IT IS DONE AUTOMATICALLY WITHOUT THOUGHT AND IS EASY as if it is a horrible mechanical process. Bunch of bullshit really.

I had a friend saying all you do to create electronic music is literally press a button and its done for you...I then explained that that approach of just 'pressing a button' would be algorithmic composition, and that that would take a hell of a lot of skilled and esoteric knowledge of mathematics and production to accomplish, probably as much as what anyone would put into learning a 'real' instrument in the first place...years of knowledge and practice.

Re: why do people hate electronic music

As a former electronic music hater I would say it's mainly because of limited perception what electronic music encompasses. In school there were so many people around me who were into EDM just because it was cool to be and listened to the crappiest Eurodance shite available that I judged all of "Tekkno".(the more k the harder, anyone remember that?) to be like that and turned to Rock and eventually Deathmetal and Blackmetal, which has a different kind of energy than Dance music, IMO.

Some EDM (probably a lot) is pretty simplistic, repetitive to the extreme, unimaginative and so commercially ambitious that it not only has no soul, but feels like it tries to devour yours and turn your brain into grey mush while it's at it.

Otoh there's stuff like Ochre, Italtek, the martian etc., but unless you are either lucky enough to be exposed to it or actively develop an interest you may never realize there's a whole universe of sound to discover.

In the end, different people like different kinds of music, and while I may feel like hot needles are shot through my eardrums my neighbour may actually enjoy whatever he's torturing me wth

And then you fall in the "it's art beacause it's fucking hard to do" argumentation and you look like a jazz fan.

Sad really, but that's the price of being at the pinpoint of current music evolution.

Electronic music board: "Why does everyone hate electronic music?"

Metal board: "Why does everyone hate heavy metal?"

Punk board: "Why does everyone hate punk music?"

Rap board: "Why do people be hatin' on hip-hop?"


"People" don't hate electronic music. You're always sensitive to your own interests.
