Formula is the death of a genre.
    I know I made the poll, but Pop really isn't a genre. It's a term that covers such a huge scope of things, including large parts of the actual genres I listed.
    I don't really understand the hatred "Pop" gets when that can cover everything from The Beatles to Kesha.

    Plenty of "Pop" is about taking risks. As much as Rock or Jazz or anything else.

    Many people associate Pop with boy bands and electronic music that expresses nonsensical(I know this isn't the appropriate word, but the word I'm looking for is not coming into my head) verses: "Starships were meant to fly". Today, many would classify the Beatles as Rock and Roll, but artist like Backstreet Boys will probably always be labeled as Pop.

    As far as what I define as pop I just don't feel like there's any "soul" in it; as if it weren't human. Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop... they all feel so organic and raw.

    Pop on the other hand feels manufactured. It's as if it were an Android: looks human and talks human, but can never truly be human. After all, most pop songs are created not off of expression, but are formulated to be catchy enough. Even Kendrick Lamar admitted this when he was quoting Drake in the song Buried Alive "Woman are like the wine tasters to our music".

    Does St Vincent count as pop? I love St Vincent. Though like Monkey King said, it's not really a genre, it's pretty much popular music of any given time.

    But there are a lot of pop bands that aren't popular. It has become a genre in its own way.

    I hate Country music. I like a variety of genres but country will never be one of them.

    I think bluegrass counts as country. Try listening to some of it.

    It's a genre with a near 100-year history, there's got to be something​ you'd like out of it.

    I also voted for country (way back when I voted on this poll), but I admit I was really thinking of more mainstream country when I voted. Alternative country is much more enjoyable for me.

    For example,

    Like Cyan said, country has a long history. There's a lot of stuff in there. Just gotta give it a chance, and you'll surely find something.
