I almost agree with you entirely Cloud. I wouldn't say I hated any kind of music though, hate is a strong word to use for this occasion. And as far as no talent needed to create dance music, you're probably right. Although not all dance music is a looped cover of classic rock. Some genuinely do innovate, but yes it is repetitive. However I appreciate music for the music itself, not always because I think the composer is talented or if it's original. Hardcore music is something I dislike, I find it irritating for exactly the same reason. It's repetitive and boring. I used to like rap, Eminem in particular and I do think he is/was talented. Not merely speaking quickly. Although it's almost pointless defending a certain genre of music (or anything for that matter), once people form an opinion it's very difficult to shift that opinion.
