    Mmmm. . . I think that each musician/person lives in a different "music world."

    I personally don't mind any of the terms you mentioned, if done well and in the right context, except "Pay to Play."

    But randomly, in my music world, I frown when I hear or see:

    -Double bass drums, or double pedals,
    -More than 3 cymbals on a drum set (besides the hi-hat),
    -Whammy bars,
    -Standard MIDI tracks,
    -Excessive reverb, on anything,
    -Tight black jeans and black concert t-shirts,
    -Anything that has to do with flutes,
    -Yamaha DX-7s, and FM synthesis in general,
    -Light beer.
