Is there such a thing as bad music?

Writing a song and finally producing it isn't an easy job. It takes lots of effort, time and practice before this goal is achieved. For this reason, it's why I don't believe there's anything like bad music but just a music someone failed to appreciate.
 
Music is in the ear of the beholder. Something I may enjoy might not be enjoyable to another person, vice versa. That you didn't find a particular song or genre appealing to your ears doesn't mean it's not music. I think there's nothing like bad music. You can say the person didn't arrange the lyrics well or adopt a nice instruments for the song.

I would've have said that there are bad songs, but when I have come across people vibing to songs that I wouldn't play on a normal day, I came to the conclusion that there are definitely no bad songs. It is all about picking what you enjoy.
 
Some stuff I dislike is subjective, but other stuff would be objective. Obviously, people playing out of tune is objective, though there is some music which might sound good out of tune or with a bad vocalist or something.

That's why it's called perspective. The way you picture something or hear it cannot be the same way another person will picture it. There's nothing like bad songs, just that your differences are not similar with another person.
 
I would say there are such things as bad music but it all depends on the person listening to music. While some could enjoy a song, others might not and could call it bad music instead.

For example, I would say that heavy rock and heavy metal are bad music but someone else could say that it is great music.
 
Perhaps the lyrics and the message can make the music bad. If the language is all lewd and unwholesome, and it promotes what should not be promoted by t can be classified as bad.
