Bye, Bye, Bye!

Everyone loves a good 90's throwback song — but if you're going on a date with one of these guys, you  might want to keep your long-standing relationship with 'N SYNC, to yourself.

Read on to see what other bands, soundtracks, and music tastes caused these men to press pause.

 

1. Heavy Metal
"A girl I dated in college listened to heavy metal. The kind where the singers are screaming, and you can't understand what they're even saying, and every instrument blends into one sound. It sounds like nails on a chalkboard...or cats mating." -Frank, 26

2. Modern Country
"Modern Country, like the Zac Brown Band. It's just a pastiche of declining trends being sold to middle-america under a sheen of pseudo-sentimentality. Modern country is just really bad rock n' roll." -Chad, 37

3. Dance, Trance, or Rave
"No, I will not take you out dancing to this kind of music. I can't believe they give out Grammys for being really good at computers..." -Steve, 45

4. The Grease Soundtrack
"What is it about these songs from Grease that fascinate women so much? If I have to hear 'You're the one that I want ooh ooh ooh' one more time I think I am going to scream!" -Dan, 33

5. Hip-Hop
"I hate going to the clubby places that play this kind of music. The music is cranked so loud, and I don't dance. The hip-hop scene is not something I'm into, so I wouldn't date a woman who is into it." -Kyle, 22

6. Rent
"I can't take a girl seriously when she starts telling me how the soundtrack to Rent is the most powerful, moving music she's ever listened to. That song about there being 52,600 minutes is so monotonous and annoying." -James, 27

7. Boy Bands
"I dated a girl who had an entire playlist dedicated to boy bands, old and new, from 'N SYNC, to One Direction. I'm sorry, but you're 28 years old, it's time to let your music tastes evolve." -Justin, 28

8. "Anything I can dance to"
"Not only is this a ridiculously vague answer to the question, 'What kind of music do you like?' but it's also subjective to the girl's dance abilities. It doesn't tell me anything about what you like, and it makes you sound kind of vapid." -Carl, 32
