Okay, you got me. I find it difficult to listen to, prolly because I got yelled at so much as I was growing up. Once I hear the screaming, I seem to shut down. Perhaps you kids just had it too easy growing up, cuz if you'd been hollered at like us older folk, this wouldn't appeal to you, either!
It all seems to come back to those modern parenting methods, doesn't it?
I mean, I USE chainsaws, but not as rating scales. Imho, a chainsaw is a necessary evil for cutting downed trees & creating heat for my winter. It isn't a sound that I would seek out for pleasure, cuz it indicates hard work to me, & has nothing to do with fun & entertainment.
Seriously, one cookie monster sounds like another to me, with the possible exception of some dynamics. How can this style of vocalization even be rated? It often sems to have no meter, which makes it UNmusical to my ear. It has no melody, & without meter, is lacking in percussive qualities as well, unlike rap. There also seems to be no REASON for the vocalist to be screaming, when the lyric is so lacking in rage, & it ends up sounding silly to me.
I know - I'm old & I don't get it. Please explain its appeal so I can better understand.
