Why do people hate scream music? It has meaning behind it all of it, the song, the singers. We all have a different story to tell and they say it in their songs. Everyone judges the screaming before they hear the meaning. We have stories and some of us don't say it, our music says it for us. Its feelings, emotions, and life lessons that they have learned. People say it's demonic and its not, they are all different religions singing. Black Veil Brides are Cristian and their 5th album is about god, sleeping with sirens is about love. "Stay for tonight, if you want to I can show you what my dreams are made of"-sleeping with sirens If i'm James Dean,than your Audrey Hepburn
"I kiss the scars on her skin, I still think your beautiful, and I don't ever wanna lose my best friend"- Pierce The Veil hold on till may
"Savior will be there even when your feeling alone out there"- Black veil brides
"This is not what it is only baby scars"- of mice and men
I don't see why people hate our kind of music just cause of the screaming. Hear the meaning than judge it because its our feelings pourd out by other people.

The issue is people listen to music based on more than meanings behind them. Tonality is very important in music, many people may enjoy screamo because it is a tonality they enjoy, but many people may not like it because it is not a tonality they enjoy.

Imagine the hundreds of different genres of music, yet many people may only enjoy the music that they connect the most with based off of their surrounding peers and culture. Screamo has a lot of emotion behind it that people don't connect to. It can be viewed as violent, aggressive, and disturbing because typically yelling or screaming only happens in those kind of contexts.

Something that has a slower tempo and lighter vocals would evoke an entirely different tonality that many may find more appropiate for their day to day life.

Well most people that listen to scream music do connect to it so it saves their lives. 89% of the people that listen to scream music are suicidal and it is because of them that they do not commit suicide. They all connect to the songs in their own way. They give people hope that tomorrow will be a better day and life can not end so soon. We all connect to the songs in our own way. And if you think we don't than you are very wrong cuz we all do

They saved 89% of suicidal teens, they don't make them more suicidal they help them stop being suicidal. That will only increase as they keep singing their music. They wont ever sing a song that makes them more depressed or suicidal they would never let them go that far. Andy has looked at his songs more than one to make sure they all have a meaning. They refuse to have their fans commit suicide. Every band not just BVB but any scream band checks to make sure they show their meaning and that they help someone in some kind of way. When they do find out a fan has commited suicide they feel like they could do more to help them so their will dedicate songs to their fans. Dead or alive they will write a song for us so we know they are their to help us get through this.

I stopped responding because the investigator started throwing information around that had no source "screamo music helped 89% of suicidal individuals" that's just not true, that would mean 89% of people who would commit suicide would also have to listen to screamo which is not true at all. If there even is a connection of suicide to screamo music then there's a bigger issue with what screamo music influences.

He did not want to debate, he wanted to convince himself he has a good taste in music, the only people would would videw this would like screamo music because it's not an interestigg topic.

honestly screamo music isn't half bad. All of the songs have a message. Some are about love and others are about cutting, it doesn't influence people to do so it just helps people not to do it. Its like the song helps them. I honestly think people hate It because they think its too loud and they cant understand what they are saying.

Who can even understand what is being said? The message is lost before its heard. You cannot like something you do not understand whats being said. It's like trying to read this.

Yet more complicated words. with lots of heavy music in the back ground and piecing guitars.

Reasons for voting decision: FF, but please for heaven's sake stop calling it screamo. There are real genre names for those types of music, but you choose a degenerative term like screamo.
