Biggest pet peeve when discussing music with someone.

Personally I cant stand when people will rip on a band and write them off as "talentless" because a band may play simplistic stuff that isnt fast or technical. I mean if you only like music thats complex and technical then you have a pretty stagnant music taste.

What about you guys?

I get annoyed when people only listen to one genre of music. I like to discuss a variety, and it rarely happens.

I hate when people's bias on music gear. example being that you have to play ibanez, jackson, esp, etc. guitar if playing metal.

When people try to label bands but they have no idea what they are talking about, and then they get pissed off when you correct them. Most recently was Paraffinity trying to tell me that the Trans-Siberian Orchestra only plays "generic 80s turd-metal."

"This music is so old." lol Don't they know that good music never ages?

edit: Especially when they refer to a song that's only 5 years old lol.

I know a few guys who out bands on the highest pedestal of people. Like, if you love their music that's great, but you can listen to other bands and realize their flaws.

When people think their favorite band is perfect.

People who only listen to a band because they're not well known, and then when the band becomes semi-popular they drop the band for "selling out."

genre elitists.

I usually am pretty okay with discussing music with people. Unless they're arrogant and try to make it seem like they know so much more than me. That's kind of annoying.

Some people just aren't into music very much, so it doesn't bother me when people aren't all that knowledgable.

^ Although that is annoying. I guess everyone's entitled to their own opinion, though.

If someone not very genre educated says something like "I love punk" and they really only listen to Green Day and/or Paramore. Or like "I love Reggae" and they only listen to Bob Marley. Basically letting one band choose your favorite genre(s).
For example, Megadeth is one of my favorite metal bands, but I really don't care for Thrash Metal.

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

How would that make one an arsehole? it comes down to presentational style, if you're rude in correcting them it would make you an arsehole, but if you aren't, you're educating them and possibly expanding their musical horizons.

Some people probably find it annoying when they're saying something like:

"I like punk bands like, At the Drive-in."

"They're not punk, they're Post-hardcore"

or

"I like metal bands like Megadeth"

"they're not metal, they're Thrash Metal"
