Removal request for: Butt Rock

Doesn't seem to contribute anything substantial and is a rather subjective (and condescending) slang term.

Has been used to refer to hard rock, hair metal and post-grunge. Unnecessary since not even regular music genres are regarded as concepts, and using umbrella terms like this seem unwarranted.

Not to mention the definition given on the concept page is probably unique in its claims, as the term (to my understanding) doesn't actually describe lyrics or structure but rather alludes to a lack of creativity.

Oh, and we already have Rock Music.

Considering there's no really good definition for what butt rock is, I tend to agree.

Just ask yourself: 'is my face melting?', if the answer is no, then it's not butt rock...

No, music is subjective and one person's "butt rock" might sound perfectly structured to another. And face-melting songs can have structure, or songs with awesome structure can have face-melting solos. It doesn't seem to add much to the site, nor does it make a whole lot of sense.

I'm surprised this concept has lasted on the site so long

I agree. What constitutes butt rock is subjective.

Agreed. The concept is far too vague and subjective, the page has been deleted.
