What were the worst music trends of 2012?

IMO, I think it was Gangnam Style, Friday and all the other Ark songs.

All generic type music that is overplayed on the radio nowadays. Those were the worst music trends.

Don't get me wrong, the songs can be good, but since they are so overplayed, they become annoying to listen to and I just want to rip out my stereo because the same songs get played over and over again.

i don't really see how that impacts music

those things don't make it a musical trend

gangnam style is as much of a 'trend' as the macarena

trend (plural trends)

1. An inclination in a particular direction
2. A tendency
3. A fad or fashion style

So gangnam style is a trend, and it is related to music.

I listened to half of one of their songs and I thought I was going to tear my ears off.
That and they ripped off The Clash.

Big Time Rush also ripped off Blur but thats a different story....

Are you saying that because it was so overused or because it's simply never good?

Well everything Mainstream related has always been shit since 2001...

However in the underground scene (or so called,) picked up some great music and new stuff to listen to daily. Hopefully 2013 has more treats for me this year... (Ventana and Circus of Dead Squirrels release... would make the year for me.)

That was 2011.

I think music trends nowadays always involves going to a club or something

Everything. I like "Gangnam Style" and some of the more professional parodies, but the rest were shit.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

you just proved me right

is music suddenly heading in the musical direction of 'gangnam style'

how many songs on the radio sound like it, huh? not many

it's a viral hit, but not a trend

Just about all the no-talent auto tune voiced artists. I'm not saying today's music is bad, because I think this decade has some of the greatest music of all time, but it's unfortunate that the majority of today's musicians don't actually have any real singing talent and can just rely on auto tune.

Why is it so difficult for you to accept Gangnam Style as a trend? Just look at the definition! Thought it's not a good trend, you are just cavilling. And even if you wouldn't want Gangbang Style to be associated with the word 'trend', it is still related to the discussion.
