Why do people hate Exo-Politics?

I'm trying to insult those who dislike it here.

But why do people hate that song? I don't like it too much but I don't think it's awful, and fans always say it's the worst on the album but I never see why they think that...

Also, hi, I'm new to the forums.

Well, I don't think the song itself is bad (in fact it's actually pretty great), it's down to the recording. The tone is garish, the pre-chorus sounds awful, and the guitar is very gnarly.

Well apparently it's down to production, but it sounds fine to me, obviously I don't know anything about the aforementioned topic.

But yeah, awesome song, highly underrated.

They dislike it because they don't like it.

What's your next question, why is the sky blue?

oh isn't this forum great so far.

I was just asking because I never read positive things about that song and I was wondering why they thought it was bad, no need to be so condescending on a forum. >_>

It's not necessarily bad, but it's not good either. It's just painstakingly average.

Welcome to the boards by the way.

ok fine:

1. it is boring and unoriginal.

2. It just revolves around a poor riff

3. The production is awful

4. The lyrics..... well.... enough said.

5. "Zetas?!?!?" I spose that is actually the best bit..

and lastly this is all my opinion.

But to be fair, when I joined the forum I was worse than you, so ignore me if you want and don't take offense.

Thank you.
Sorry if I was being annoying back there, I was just expecting a response like that, but in the end you gave the most information. :P

I rather like this song. It's catchy and it gets stuck in my head everytime I listen to it.

I liked it when I first heard it, but it just sounds kind of empty, you know? Like there's not too much going on.
