    Generally, Simon Cowell's Xfactor ****. The types that know nothing of the music industry and song writing, fired into millions quicker than the beeriods after a heavy night on the piss.

    Not seen that film, just kind of assumed it would be a load of ****e. And from that trailer I would probably be right.
    It's god awful. Like a soft porn...I do enjoy the soundtrack though

    Aside from the fact that most rap and metal is pop, I want to know what you do listen to. Seems like you've just about got classical, jazz, ambient and noise left.

    screaming is by definition high pitched.

    Gutturals by definition are extremely lowed pitched.

    So maybe if a genre has gutturals it isn't screamo? Not all music that has harsh vocals is screamo, and screamo isn't even a big or popular genre.

    Your ears are the problem.

    I can listen to anything except most country and bad "screamo" (as opposed to good skramz like Orchid and Envy) and bad hardcore (i/e Pulling Teeth).

    I do have to be in a certain mood even to listen to good hardcore, though, and am picky about the vocals (just for a taste of what I consider good hardcore, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RkM4J-zguw

    Whats wrong with being part of the "i'll listen to anything" crew? Is openness to music really that looked down upon?

    Actually, the screamo I've heard has been low pitched like a roar

    Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Looking down on another person for what they listen to is like looking down on them for having brown hair.

    Guttural noises are usually prevalent in metal and hardcore.

    A lot of screamo has harsh vocals, but is extremely melodic.

    Dubstep and heavy metal. I appreciate that both make skill to make but where's the rhythm and soul in those genres? You can't move to them apart from jumping around wildly flailing your arms in mid air.
    At the risk of answering a rhetorical question:



    1'56" onwards.
