the worst phrase used when describing music?
It's 'earnest' or 'sincere'.
Sincere meaning I really mean this, maaaaan, then I will have to hurt you.
is my pet hate. Especially when used to describe a band with anything other than guitar, bass and drums.
"Funky" is the other one, but that's not restricted to musical waters.
when I hear a band's sound being described as cathartic....what they mean is the singer screams.
Fantastic if they're making vegetable soup. Fucking shit if they're making music.
