There are many different types of music; country, hip hop, oldies, pop, indie, punk rock, funk, classical, etc. What kind of music one listens to can depend on what beats they like and what the lyrics mean to them. There is a huge variety of music that high schoolers listen to.
Freshman Victoria Yefremenkov states that she likes hip hop and pop the best. Her favorite artists are Rae Sremmurd, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Bobby Shmurda. She likes the songs No Type by Rae Sremmurd, I Don’t Mind by Usher, This is How We Do by Katy Perry, and Adore You by Miley Cyrus. She likes this music because it energizes her, puts her in a better mood, and gets her “turnt”.
Another student from El Camino who has requested to stay anonymous in fear of being judged for their music taste says, “I listen to country music when I’m alone because all of my friends listen to rap,”. Their favorite artists are; Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, and Lee Brice. Their all time favorite song is God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton. They believe that the words and meanings in country songs are really meaningful and sweet.
Clearly, everyone has their own taste in music. This is especially true in high school because there is a lot of soul searching going on there and people finding themselves. No one should judge or be judged based on what music they listen to.
