Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but that doesn’t mean that their opinions are right. When it comes to music, movies, and other entertainment—there’s a right and a wrong opinion. Sorry, not sorry. While some refer to these as “unpopular opinions,” I refer to them as absolutely incorrect and preposterous opinions—bad takes.
Recently, Twitter account New Branches asked people online to share their unpopular music opinions.

And, boy, do they deliver. Brace yourselves, this will hurt.
1. Eminem is trash.

2. Nickelback is good.
Nickelback is a good band but everyone hates on them because the internet told them to https://t.co/PS0i8qcETi

3. And, so is Katy Perry.
Katy Perry is an underrated vocalist and songwriter. Y’all criticize her but her voice has matured so much and is so unique that you know it’s her. People know her main bubblegum singles but if u listened to most of her album tracks, they’re like the deepest songs ever ☕️ https://t.co/rHPg1rnZaj

4. The Beatles are overrated (this one hurts my soul, bro).

5. Ariana Grande has no talent.
Ariana Grande isn’t that great, and her recent single 7 Rings is horrible. People are just flocking to her right now because of the Mac Miller situation and her recent engagement and then breakup with Pete Davidson.

6. People pay too much attention to the wrong artists.
Too much attention is paid to the wrong "artists"

7. Genres ruin everything.
genres ruin so many amazing bands/albums/etc for people and it’s ridiculous. artists should not be confined to one style of music because it’s how they started out. let artists grow and change, it’s better for them and for you because you have a taste of something new every time. https://t.co/f9ScKSi81Q

8. The radio plays garbage.
99% of music on the radio is utter garbage https://t.co/EBpxLm3rZA

9. Song lyrics ruin sh*t.
songs don’t have to have lyrics to be powerful https://t.co/afexd9ycsl

10. But, also, music with no lyrics suck.
The new generation gives too much emphasis on music/beats and not enough on lyrics. That's why we have so many mumble rappers

11. Yeezy ain’t that great.
kanye west’s new music is not that good
— Cobes (@JacobiLucchese) January 22, 2019
12. It’s okay to be a “new fan.”
stop hating on “new” fans.. you were once a new fan too https://t.co/VnmA9pgxkD

13. Classical is underrated.
Classical is amazing

14. Today’s music is not worth the hype.
Music nowadays is trash 🗑 there’s so many rappers that can hardly even rap, the same beat to every single song. There’s also no production in music anymore. If you look to the 80’s there was soooo much thought into the music and lyrics and vocal abilities
— Peppa Breitinger (@PeppaBreitinger) January 22, 2019
15. But, others say music today IS GOOD.
Music these days IS as good as it used to be. There’s bad stuff in every generation, we just get to hear the good stuff through nostalgia goggles (or technically nostalgia earbuds). Stuff these days is better produced, more inventive, and more creative than it ever has been. https://t.co/g2HtwFcBgK

16. Video game music is real music.
Video game music is indefinitely better than modern day music. And I mean SOOOOOOOOOO much better, there's no contest. I'd rather listen to my least favorite video game song than my favorite modern song. (Anime Openings and anime music count under the same umbrella as game songs)

17. To be a “true musician” you have to write your own music.
true musicians write their own music…,,,,,,..,,, u can have a good voice / be talented on an instrument but if u didn’t write the song (or created an adaptation of one) u shouldn’t be given credit for it

18. Country “slaps.”
Some country songs slap. I still won't play em tho😅😬
