Depends on if it suits the video and is used correctly.

An example would be the use of Jake Chudnow's music in the Vsauce videos.
I want to put music in my video, but I heard a lot that people don't like it, and I shouldn't have any music in my video at all.

I would say to take time to study how music is used in media.

The common complaints that can occur are that the music is distracting, too loud, conceals the voice/voices of people talking, does not fit the subject matter.

Used correctly it can help reinforce the subject matter of the video and subtly influence the engagement and emotions of the viewers.

I think without music my video could be a little bit boring.
 
I usually am ok with background music, but it needs to be more subtle and not a distraction from your voice
Bad example for background music:
Good example:

Some examples:

In this one Artemis used a variety of instrumental music. There are his intro and outro, cut a ways, and when talking quietly in the background there a variety of tracks used a background support.


With Vsauce the instrumental music is in background support and again a variety of tracks.


Veritasium is another channel that uses music in support but also skilfully to capture attention and provide reinforcement.

Something else to remember is that YouTube dose have a library of music available that you can use with out paying a fee. But take care to read the terms of use as you usually have to post a credit and some times a link in the video description to the tracks used. Also make sure that you keep a copy of the agreements for any music you use just in case you have to contest a DRM strike.

The copyright system of YouTube and media companies can be a brutal and it can be all to easy to rack up three strikes and your channel being shut down. It can be as simple as forgetting that a radio was on in the background.
The only DRM strike I have had was for the very resin that I had not noticed that there was a radio on.

I'm currently searching in this Youtube music library. Let's see what I can find.

What you could do is create a practice voice over and then combine it with the track that you are thinking of using. Then you can play with the leaves as you listen back so that you can determine if it works.

Some more examples



Moog on this channel actually writes his own music for the channel but still they make great use of music in there shows

I don't want to link the whole video, but once a Youtuber said: "Are you talking to a child when you put that kind of music in your videos?":p All these pseudo DIY channels have that, I hate it.

Hey if it's done right, what could possibly go wrong? Sometimes youtubers make mistakes, Tujo here www.bitchute.com: TujoPanda sometimes has the music volume randomly go up to the point where his narration is a bit drowned. Personally I like to put the annoying music from LSD dream emulator in mine, but then again I'm pretty much a troll
