So, after reading the "Rock is for old fat bald guys", and having it hit a bit close to home, I decided to listen to some popular music. Apple Music's Canada 100 playlist is the most played tracks, updated every day.

9 of the top 10 have the [E] warning.

Shrug. These days companies think they have to cover their asses by putting warnings on everything. What can you do, right?

Also, if you just like listen to random top 10s to try to 'give pop a chance,' you're probably going to have a bad time. Also, the majority of those are hiphop, not straight up pop.

Yeah, the kids today don't really understand about real music, they just want to hear loads of swearing and stuff about hoes, gangsters and shooting and that.

I think the warning is that Canadian music sucks.  However, not
as bad as Canadian film.  I don't think I have ever, EVER seen
a good Canadian movie.

Quebec makes good movies cuz they have a good audience to produce for.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Atom Egoyan is great.

Cronenberg is Canadian, too and his movies are considered Canadian.

Oh ya... forgot about The Fly...

A lot of Canadians watch movies not realizing it's Canadian, and often go on about how bad Canadian movies are. The volume isn't there since we're pretty much flooded with American pop culture.

The Sweet Hereafter is a must-see. I literally ordered the DVD a few weeks ago.

I said “popular”, not “pop”, deliberately.

This is what’s getting play on Apple Music Canada, regardless of genre.

Update:

Last night I put it in in the car with my 12 year old.

He picks up the phone which is streaming the music and hits <skip>, the explains.

“A bunch of swearing isn’t really a song. I usually skip anything with a number in the band name, or “Lil”... or “Woo””

He then puts on “Imagine Dragons”.

I mean, he is only 12, so I wouldn't judge him too harshly.

The young gingers with their fake beards, flipped hair or manbuns need protection and like lame music.  I don't mind som types of pop or other genres.  But lame stuff like this seriously can't be liked by anyone?  I feel like it's nails on a chalkboard.

On the other hand some of the parodies are damn funny.

I actually don't mind some songs from crossover type groups (some rock riffs or inspirations mixed with pop sounds.  Imagine Dragons and Coldplay are examples of more modern groups with some songs I like.  (Some songs I don't like of course.)
