    I personally don't like grime music. I'm more for rock myself. I don't like much rapping, but I think it sounds better when done in an American accent than a British one.
    To me grime just sounds like 'innit bruv am in East London wit mah Rolex ain't I, fam? And then there was a fight in the street and got mobbed and robbed yeah - British life innit."
    My taxi driver (who is white) who takes me to school everyday always puts BBC Radio 1Xtra on in the afternoon, which is pretty much just hip hop, R&B and grime. Particularly annoying when you hear the same songs every day. His ringtone on his phone is some Dizzee Rascal song, I think.
    But no music is objectively 'good' or 'bad'. What's good music to me will probably have some people falling asleep, while other music that's raved about might have me cringing in my seat. People probably like grime because of the beats, the culture, and the 'close to home' lyrics, or other reasons. People who listen to it aren't idiots or uncultured or have 'bad' taste; they just like that music.

    Shut up you wasteman this is britains culture yh accept it you stupid prick or ill shank you and your dusty face
    Hi "skengboy", I think you're just furthering my point that grime is causing a culture of the chav to grow in this country. You defend your preferred type of music with violence when all i did was state my opinion on it and ask people for theirs.

    To be honest i would put money on it that you're <16 like the rest of the grime fans, so even if i did come to your "endz" i doubt very much would happen in your favour.

    Study also show rock and heavy metal increases chance of suicide among teens.
    Does that also make rock bad?

    i would say that is one of the cons of rock, yes

    It's also not a main part of being a following of rock

    this was nice to read even as this hour
    I'm white as well and grime and dnb are my fav genres lol
    however you can have grime and rap that don't speak about any of that stuff
    What makes a genre a genre is the rhythm and instruments and bpm and all this tecnical stuff, and then of course the image
    but rock isn't anymore innocent as far as influence

    I really don't understand why so many UK teens are following this grime culture. The music is genuinely unpleasant to listen to and it promotes really chavy behaviour like taking drugs wearing a tracksuit... Anyone else think the same?
