Judgement Made By Looking at a Band's Name

So Pit..

Before you hear any music of any artist at all for the first time, have you ever made the assumption, wheather you just look at the artist's name, artwork, lyrics, style, image, etc etc, that you would either like or hate that particular artist right off the bat? Then listen to said artist just to find out your assumption was right?

If so, what artists?

I assumed Porcupine Tree were an indie band.

I still do, as I still haven't listened to them.

Yeah same, but a lot of the time your instincts are right.

They was the rare exception. I listened to them thinking I'd hate it but they actually kick a lot of ass

All of them

The Something = indie-ish band
Verb The Noun = modern metal (core)
Noun that ends with -tion = death metal
Two long words = prog
4 words or more = "emotional hardcore" or whatever you call it these days
Name and the Plural Nouns = folk or blues

I don't judge music because of the artist's name, look or artwork, I construct my opinion of them by the music.

Kinda obvious.....

i really hate when people do that. im a huge music fan and love spreading the holy word which is good music. but when people like this friend i have can decide whether they like an artist before 30 seconds of music have been played... what? listen to the music before you make oyur decisions!

I've often bought albums by bands I've never heard of just by the cover, not so much the name. I have been burned many, many times, but also I have been pleasantly surprised.

I bought The Gaslight Anthem's The '59 Sound merely by the name and the cover, I had never heard of them before.

Also Maylene and the Sons of Destruction their first album, and Murder by Death's in bocca il lupo.

When I first heard of Streetlight Manifesto, I thought they'd make gay and terrible music.



I was right.

At first I was like nah but then I thought about it was was like yeah actually.

Also add "ridiculous medical term = brutal death metal/goregrind" and "random words/phrases that don't mean anything = pseudo-prog metalcore/mathcore" to that list.
