Fall 2022 - This class is definitely an easy GE. The lectures were not mandatory so I typically did not attend especially since they were boring, but the content itself was interesting. The content reviewed in lectures was not necessary to know in order to do the assignments. I think I had like 5 assignments in total for this class. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy and interesting GE!
Fall 2015 - I thought the class was going to be less work based on the ratings, but it turned out to require a good amount of reading and writing. My TA was a fairly nice grader, though, so it wasn't too bad. I can see how people could find this class overbearing at times, since the professor does require you to identify songs and memorize information about them, but it's nothing excessive. If you just attend lecture, take notes, and memorize the songs on his playlist, your grade should be fine. Even if you don't attend lecture, he gives you a review sheet with a list of terms that you should know for the final, and you can just fill out the list with information from Wikipedia.
Fall 2022 - Bro these lectures were so so so long and absolutely useless. Thankfully, the assignments weren't based on what was taught in the lectures. It is a super easy GE, and I would recommend it - just don't go to the lectures. Also my TA didn't really speak English, so when I would ask her something she would high key just confuse me more and not answer my questions at all. NOT HER FAULT FOR NOT SPEAKING ENGLISH it just made it hard to have her as a teacher.
