I Dont Like Songs With Profanity In Them

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 204 People

    A few cuss words I can handle. When the whole song is made up of one phrase : **** you you **** dirty *** *****,   that's a no go for me!

    I Don't

    I think so much more can be said without. Now, there are some songs, mainly country, where they fit just right and don't sound profane. (A Charlie Daniel's song comes to mind.) I don't like them generally. I don't use them when I talk. Unless I bash my thumb with a hammer or...

    I don't mind songs with profanity in them. Although, I wouldn't want to hear a curse every 2 seconds throughout the whole thing.

    I feel like, what is the point of using

    profanity when the English language is so vast that we have so many adjectives and verbs. It's just really silly to me. I'm a nerd.

    I only like them if I'm alone or with my wife. I've been listening to 2 live crew,and trucker songs since I was a teen.

    Usually I Don't Like It

    Usually I don't like it but there is one exception: **** you from Eamon. The music of this song is very good, so I forgive the words. But the lyrics are important, too. So mostly I don't listen to music with words like this.

    Certain songs DO make their point more clear with a bit of vulgar descriptions and dirty words. lol. But as a general rule, i DON'T want to hear a CD filled with nasty, filthy, potty mouthed lyrics. And even WORSE, I don't like to hear LITERALLY: bleeeep, bleeeep sounds over the...

    Oh God, I hate songs with profanity. Of course, sometimes they have nice melodies or so and I listen to them. But I just have to sing when I listen to music. One reason why I can't listen to instrumentals. I just have to sing. All I know is I feel better when I sing. And when I...

    Exactly

    Yeah, exactly, man.  Why bother?  It's supposed to be shock value, I suppose, but all it means to me is that you don't have sufficient vocabulary to express what you really want to say.  Take Mysitkal: I LOVE his music; but I can't listen to it, for all the p***y...

    But I'm Torn

      most of the artists I listen to on a regular basis that do occasionally use profanity use it to convey extreme emotion that other words can't convey. I usually prefer the songs without profanity, but when a song is written a certain way, it is written to be that way, and...

    I get bugged alot because I refuse to listen to music that has profanity in it. I like my country music ALOT. I get called a Hick or Redneck. One DOES NOT need to have swearing or other stuff like sex or drugs to get the point of the song across. I maybe be oldfashion...

    It Irritates Me

    It's rare that I hear a song with dirty or vulgar langauge in it where it isn't overdone or distatefully done. Swearing is meant to convey particularly strong emotion, not to up the "shock value" of one's latest music video. The worst thing to happen to art has been...

    How Articulate Are You?

    Profanity is a turn-off. People who use it must not be very articulate.

    Filler Words.

    Does it really matter?  If the song is crap, no amount of swearing will make it any less crap.  I say swear away, if it works within the context of the song.  Just don't play it so loud on your mp3 player that everyone else on the bus, train etc can hear it...

    Songs With Profanity

    Actually, I usually don't mind those songs, but sometimes it bothers me. For example, in James Blunt's "You're Beautiful", the lyrics are all gentle and full of longing, until in the middle he suddenly says "*******", and it's totally out of place. Ugh.

    vulgarity and profanity are two different things.  i cuss.  i don't know many adults who don't.  very few in fact.  but i don't believe vulgarity is necessary.  there are other words one could utilize to get the point across and it makes the song that...

    i dislike profanity in ANYTHING. To me it shows a lack of education, you can SO easily get your point across, just as strongly, without swearing. My mother feels the same way UNTIL you put her on a golf course and then i on't know who she is?lol
