I got used to the music, and found it fun after a while. What you listen to, and what you do in the class really depends on the instructor. Some instructors at my gym only play cutting edge international jazzy music, some ONLY dance/rap, others only classic rock (60s - 70s), and there is one dude that only plays blue-grass and country. Some instructors go for "whole body fitness" (push-ups, hip/dance moves, etc.), others super-hard intensity intervals, but my favorites tend to make their rides as much like riding outside as possible.
But it can be all over the place. I have to admit that I like some variety in my spin classes, and prefer it when they switch things up and make me do and listen to new stuff. One key thing about the classes, is that you DON'T have to do everything that they tell you. If it hurts or feels wrong, you can do something else until they go to another "move".
I say go back 3-10 times, and try other instructors. It is a lot less boring than riding on a stationary bike alone. Take care.
