RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

My favorite is hip-hop/rap because that's what ive been listening to my whole life. I like how the lyrics are the main part of the song and I think that if you get good at interpreting the lyrics to rap music, you can do the same for other genres easily.

Don't get me wrong, rap isn't the only genre with good lyrics or even the only genre with lyrics at its level, but almost all rap songs send a message and I can pick it up quicker than I do for other genres

Ive been getting into metal for the past few years and I would have to say is my second favorite genre. I don't give a fuck about its subgenres though but I mostly like classic metal, such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Definitely my second favorite genre.

I also like Beatles and Rolling Stones type rock. Not their pop rock but shit like Strawberry Fields Forever.

I hate lyrics that you can find out the full meaning without thinking about it.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

I have an extremely eclectic taste in music. I listen to everything from Frank Sinatra to Ice Cube.
If I had to pick one though it would definitely be punk rock.
Ramones, Dead Kennedys, The Vandals, Stiff Little Fingers, Bad Brains etc...

Classic Rock probably second
WAR, Foghat, Rolling Stones, The Who, Aerosmith, Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane

Pretty much anything and everything except for all the new pop auto-tune garbage.
I do like Lady Gaga though.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

I like alternative hip hop. Mainstream hip-hop just isn't any good.

"There's no 'I' in 'Team'." Yeah, but there is a "me" in "Team" spelled backwards!

I like electronic music. Particularly house, dubstep and break-beat.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

My sense of music is still developing I think. I like lots of different stuff, no country and mostly no rap.
I've been getting more into dubstep though.

No, this is Patrick.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

Currently I've been listening to mostly Hip-Hop/Rap. When im high though, or just feel like something different, usually electronic, like deadmau5 and daft punk.

Rap is probably my favorite genre though, just because I can actually understand the lyrics, and personally, it just seems like to me there is more meaning behind the lyrics of rap songs. I like some metal, but it just seems like its all about the same 2 things. Its either bitching about hating someone, or bitching about breaking up with their girlfiend, But it might just seem like that because i've only really listened to more of the "mainstream" metal, which I personally think sucks donkey dick. Most metal i've heard is just them singing for about 45 seconds (and so far, all the times theres actually been singing in any metal song ive heard the guy always sounds like a god damn 12 year old, and he sounds like a fucking pussy) and then he gradualy gets louder and louder until he finally screams some generic ass fucking line like "and you wont, FORGIVE ME!" and then they scream random shit I cant even hear.

That went on longer than expected but yeah haha, electronic and Rap are my two main genres.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

Where I live, the kiddies listen to shit like country and rap (except for the Keynes vs. Hayek raps). Which is shit, I hate it. I also hate dubstep.

I generally listen to classic rock and oldies. I'm a fan of everything from Elvis Presley to Motley Crue, from Simon and Garfunkel to Rush. That kind of stuff. I'm not completely against newer stuff though, as I've lately listened to some Jack White.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

Recently I've been mostly into death metal such as Entombed, Dismember, Opeth, Bloodbath, Grave, Unleashed, Morbid Angel, Death, that kind of shit. I also like progressive rock such as Pink Floyd, Rush, ELP, and some King Crimson, as well as classic rock like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, etc.
I like some ambient "electronic" music, especially dark ambient such as Atrium Carceri and Ulver. I don't listen to it very often at all, though.

I'm not a huge fan of rap, but then I'm also really, really terrible with lyrics, and not just at getting the meaning but at comprehending what words are being said in the first place.

RE: Your favorite music genre non-spambot version

@fish20 I don't know enough about country to make a point about it, but there are country songs with meaning AND rap songs. Ill show you some meaningful rap songs. Like I said, idk enough about country to suggest songs to you.
Uncommon Valor - Jedi Mind Tricks
Cause of Death - Immortal Technique
Judo Flip - Asheru (on the 4-minute video on YouTube, the uploader looped the intro so skip to like 1:43)
911 Is a Joke - Public Enemy

Look up more about country too. I'm sure you'll like it if you get more into it

On topic, my favorite genre is punk, but I also like classic metal, hip hop and jazz/blues. Below those are electronic and classical. At the bottom is pop or anything with the word pop in it.
