Agree?

Not really. There are a lot of bands that I like to listen to, but if I'm not in the mood, then I'll stop listening to them and move on to other stuff. For example, I like Trivium a lot (inb4 lololololol he's a Trivitard and irrelephant hurhurhur), but I get burned out listening to them. They're certainly a band I think has the potential to stick around for a while, but it's not something I can listen to day in and day out.

I think it's really ironic that old schoolers have been hipsters since even before the word hipster was even invented.

Any band, that one listens to in excess, will get tiring after awhile. I'm that way with Trivium, mostly specific albums. I also get that way with Vehemence, which is pretty much the reason I've been listening to Helping The World To See more than God Was Created lately.

I had completely forgotten that Vehemence existed.

I didn't know hipsters (women's panties) were such a recent invention.

In all seriousness though, I don't think I got your joke. Please elaborate.

I think it's because "old schoolers" talk about how much better and/or obscure their favourite bands are. Of course, obscurity/underground is all relative..

Do serious people ever really talk about how obscure bands are anymore?

No. That's how you know if they're serious or not.

This, and how much better old things are and how metal was better before it was popular.

Oh, alright, I just didn't see "old schooler" as automatically an underground thing. But I see the point.

While it's relevant to the discussion at hand, this got me thinking, and I'd like to hear you guys answer to a classic question you might hear from a person in real life: "What are some bands you like to listen to?"

After that, I'd like you to give a brief description of how well the people around you know these bands. I know we live in all parts of the world and have all kinds of tastes. I'm curious as some of us might be lucky enough to be surrounded by musically likeminded people, but I for one am not. Curious how I can relate to your feelings about the music you listen to when perceived by others around you.

I'm actually lucky enough to have a couple of friends who are also metal fans. A number of my friends who aren't real metalheads like a few of the artists I listen to (Meshuggah and BTBAM are pretty accessible, I guess?). Only a few of my friends actually dislike my music and refuse to listen to any of it.

Popular is also relative. I think Burzum was way more popular in the early 90s than now. Most of the "older" bands are better though because the genres have practically run their course, it's difficult to bring something worthwhile to the table nowadays.

That being said I like plenty of modern metal bands.

My closest friends are past or present metal tourists. One of them is just obsessed with technicality and isn't interested in metal that isn't hard to play. Another one I've gotten in to black metal because he digs the atmosphere and ambiance, but he isn't actively searching for more in metal, he mostly listens to electronic stuff (not dub step).

I avoid that question like the plague.

Depending on how pretentious I feel like sounding at the moment, my answer ranges from name dropping Romantic composers to just shrugging my shoulders and saying "eh just some old rock and stuff".

If you just give someone band names: "I've never heard of any of those"
In all other accounts you either get misrepresented (I listen to metal, or hardcore, or "everything") or they might not understand your answer, eg: I listen to music that challenges the ear/mind.

It's lose lose lose

Yessir. Which is why I avoid it.

I mean, why should I say that I listen to Ildjarn, Beherit, and King Crimson. We both know they haven't heard of any of the bands, and sometimes I will even get nods and words of approval from these chaps as if they know the bands quite well. Speaks more as a merit of bad character than anything else, but thats something else.

I suppose I could just say Meshuggah and ask for anal penetration. Thats what all the kids are doing these days.

Haha, alright, so I guess I'm not the only one who gets uncomfortable when the question is thrown. I'm guessing that in 'murica the ratio of metal listeners is smaller than in a lot of European countries, so it might be even more dreadful a question there.

I guess I try to avoid it by giving some vague genre based answer, and maybe add a household name like Miles Davis. But if they want bands it gets awkward when they know none of them, and then I get uncomfortable and say something stupid like "yeah they're pretty underground" and end up looking like a hipster douche who listens to that music cause no one knows it. True story.

I have plenty of friends who listen to metal. It's just usually very different bands than what I do. I feel like there's not a person in the world who hasn't heard of Meshuggah. And you know, everyone knows Opeth while no one knows Cynic.

Most of my friends are into surface level metal and crappy metalcore.

It's pretty shite tbh. I'm all like, guys check out this new album from Between The Buried and Me it's awesome!

And they'll be like "nah" and will listen to Pantera and Asking Alexandria.
