Why electronic music sucks – a case against the popular genre


It is a well-known fact that electronic music sucks. It is repetitive, boring, and often times, indistinguishable from one another. There are very few exceptions to this rule, and even those are usually not very good.

Why electronic music sucks

There are many reasons why electronic music sucks. It is often repetitive and boring, the beats are often too fast or too slow, and the melodies are often too simple. Additionally, electronic music often lacks the emotional depth and soul of other genres of music.

It’s repetitive and unimaginative

Repetitive and unimaginative are probably the two most common complaints about electronic music. And they’re both fair criticisms. A lot of electronic music is, in fact, repetitive and unimaginative. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, repetition and simplicity can be some of the most powerful tools in a musician’s arsenal.

Take, for example, the work of Steve Reich. One of the pioneers of minimalism, Reich’s pieces are often based on simple, repeating patterns that gradually evolve over time. The result is music that is both hypnotic and deeply moving. It’s proof that repetitive music can be anything but boring.

Of course, not all electronic music is as interesting as Reich’s. A lot of it is indeed repetitive and unimaginative. But that doesn’t mean it’s all bad. There are plenty of electronic musicians out there who are doing interesting and innovative things with the genre. It just takes a little effort to find them.

It’s overproduced and polished

Electronic music has become so overproduced and polished that it often sounds sterile and lifeless. It’s hard to find an electronic track that doesn’t sound like it was made in a computer, and that’s because most of them are. The best electronic music is the stuff that sounds organic and human, like it was made by real people playing real instruments. But even that is becoming rarer as more and more artists rely on computer-generated sounds.

It’s soulless and emotionless

Most people who don’t like electronic music say that it’s soulless and emotionless. They argue that the music is repetitive and monotonous, and that it lacks the depth and feeling of other genres.

There is some truth to these claims – electronic music can be repetitive and monotonous, and it can sometimes lack the emotional depth of other genres. However, this isn’t always the case. There are many electronic artists who make beautiful, emotionally-rich music. And even when electronic music is repetitive or monotonous, there can still be a lot of beauty in its simplicity.

Ultimately, whether or not you like electronic music comes down to personal preference. If you’re open to trying new things, there’s a good chance you’ll find some electronic music that you enjoy. But if you’re closed-minded about genre, you probably won’t like it no matter what.


To conclude, electronic music is not for everyone. It can be repetitive and lack the soul of other genres. However, it is still possible to find good electronic music if you know where to look. There are many great artists out there making interesting and innovative music with synthesizers, drum machines and other electronic equipment. If you’re open to giving it a chance, you might be surprised by what you find.
