Everyone has opinions that are deemed less than popular by majority of others, and while some people take them way too seriously or personally, I think, for the most part, they are very intriguing. As long as they aren’t being used to belittle someone, they are very good conversation starters. Something about uncommon opinions is just weirdly interesting and sometimes really funny, but they can also sometimes make you think differently or see something in a new light. For this post, I have decided to stick to the more fun, lighthearted things to base my opinions on, so here are my top 10 unpopular opinions.
- Steak is not that good.
While I do enjoy a nice medium well or well done steak once in a while, I have never understood the hype around it. I’ve just never been that impressed by it, so I don’t understand why people make it out to be such a big deal. I think it’s over priced and over rated, and if given the choice, I would eat a really good brat over a steak any day.
- Baseball is the most boring sport that has ever happened.
Talk about a snooze-fest! I often wonder if baseball players are even tired after a game, because they don’t do anything 75% of the time. I do not get the thrill with this sport; no one hits each other, no one gets tackled, and nothing happens. I despise watching baseball and do not get how people can sit and watch it for hours. I will gladly stick with watching football.
- The second Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies is way better than the first.
When I read the books, I always pictured Dumbledore as having a strong voice and a commanding presence. I thought the first Dumbledore was incredibly weak and was very disappointed in the casting choice. Michael Gambon’s Dumbledore was exactly what I pictured in my head. While I understand why people prefer the first one, I don’t get why people hate on the second one so much. I thought he was phenomenal and exactly the Dumbledore the story needed.
- Buffalo sauce is nasty.
To paraphrase on of my good friends from high school, “I straight up don’t like it.”
- Beyoncé is wildly overrated.
Every Beyoncé song I hear is just her singing the same word or phrase over and over again. While I think she has great voice and some really good songs, overall, I don’t think she’s very impressive. Her lyrics are shallow and her performances are boring. Don’t get me wrong- she’s a very beautiful woman and has a gorgeous voice. I just don’t quite get the hype surrounding her.
- Olive Garden is not impressive.
While we’re on the subject of things that are overrated, let’s talk about Olive Garden. First of all, the fat that pasta is crazy expensive in restaurants baffles me, because it is one of the cheapest things to make. Olive Garden is insanely overpriced and their food is mediocre at best. I can make some bomb ass pasta for dirt cheap, so Olive Garden is not impressive to me.
- Van Gogh’s paintings are ugly.
I know he’s a super famous artist and could obviously paint better than I could ever hope to, but I think his paintings are ugly. I don’t like his brush work and he uses the same color palette for every single one of his pieces, so I just don’t think his paintings are that impressive. When I say this, a lot of people bring up Starry Night, but my original statement still stands. I don’t think Starry Night is all that great. There are way better artists out there that I feel are overshadowed by Van Gogh’s unimpressive work.
- Country music is fire.
I get that everybody has styles of music they prefer over others, but I don’t get why people hate country music so vehemently. I, personally, love it. I like music that I can hear individual instruments in and understand what the singer is saying. Nowadays, it seems like country music is the only genre that I can find these things in. I love me my Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and Carrie Underwood, and I will never apologize for it.
- The Princess Bride is a stupid movie.
I watched this movie for the first time when I was a junior in college, and I couldn’t even finish it because it was so bad. Why do so many people love this movie!? Someone please explain it to me, because I just don’t get it. This film should win an award for being the most overrated movie that has ever happened.
- Pineapple is NOT the problem with Hawaiian pizza.
Whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza has been a heated debate for well over a year, and I, for one, don’t give a rat’s ass. If you like it on your pizza, good for you. If not, oh well. With that said, I do not like Hawaiian pizza, but not because of the pineapple. The grossest part of Hawaiian pizza, or any pizza for that matter, is Canadian bacon. It doesn’t even look appetizing and it ruins everything it’s put on. Pepperoni pizza, however, is BOMB with pineapple added to it.
I encourage you all to share your unpopular opinions with others, because it can break the ground of a really fun conversation. Whether you agree with any of mine or not, I hope you at least cracked a smile while reading this. Never let anyone tell you your unpopular opinions are wrong! Keep on being your bad self, and, in the wise words of Kevin G, “Don’t let the haters stop you from doing your thang!”
James Patterson sucks.
