I have an issue here.

Me and my girlfriend love each other to death, but we have different tastes in music.
And we fight about it all of the time.

I listen to mostly death metal (Cannibal Corpse, etc.) and power metal (Nevermore, etc.).

She listens to what I call "radio rock" (Slipknot, Disturbed, Godsmack, etc.)

She gets really pissed off and won't talk to me when I say my music kicks hers in the nuts.

1) Is my music better than hers?
2) Is it right for me to say what I do?

Thanks, Pit!

It's all subjective.

People hate one type of music, others love it. It's the way it is, and always will be.

2 - Learn to not be quite such a douche, you might even get laid.

You could, oh gosh I dunno, maybe accept eachother for your differences?

-Edit-
Also, no. One style is no better then another. It's all in the ear of the listener. You'd be an ass to say otherwise:

"My music is better then your music!"

'Why?'


"...it just is!"

Everyone is different. You like your music, she likes hers, and I think both of yours are equally bad.
#8
As said before, it's all subjective.

However, you shouldn't say yours is better than hers. I get annoyed when people say that to me, and I don't say it to other people, even though I want to. Just don't say anything about her music at all unless she specificly asks you to.

Then bag it out all you want.

Me and my ex were kind of the same way, albeit different genres but same idea, she was into the radio music. I learned to be tolerant and less of a douche and actually picked up some new bands.

Moral is don't be a dick and stop insulting her tastes, just be tolerant and you'll both learn to accept each other's tastes, and maybe even like a few bands.
#13
start listening to brighteyes and coldplay, it'll piss you both off, and you can have angry sex.
Soon, death metal's drums will be so fast only computers will be able to listen to it.

94? Not bad. It shall improve >=)

Your music sucks so much dick it's unbelievable?

Disagree? Upset? Perhaps you should realize that people have different tastes in music...

Sure, Godsmack and Slipknot are mainstream (and arguably garbage) but good music is good music... And that is subjective...

(The first sentence was only a device to get you to think, not serious... Though I do see cannibal corpse as a joke/gimmick band)
#15
I don't really think there's too much of a difference to complain about. It's not she likes Folk music.
#16
I think you both fail, for only listening to metal.

maybe you guys should try listening to things OTHER than metal. Trust me, I used to be a big metalhead elitist....music is too beautiful to listen to only one genre.

Listen to Ska, the both of you.

But you have no right to say your music is better than hers.
#20
Try some other bands out, see if you guys can find some new bands that you both like. Saying someone else's taste in music sucks is a real douchey thing to do, especially to your girlfriend.

Well, both of the styles you mentionned sucks to me

Anyways........ If it's true love, music won't get in the way. Not that I'm saying it will or it has, but still. My dream girl likes Rap and I HATE about 99.5% of Rap, but I still love her. Part of the reson she probably gets mad is the whole "kicks you in the nuts" thing. If you want to talk about music you dislike, talk about something that you both dislike.

I hate both of your music. That doesn't mean its a problem. I just have different tastes, just like everyone else in the world. Get over it.

At least your girlfriend has some taste half similar to yours. I'm a raving metalhead and my wife listens to Top 40 music and thats it. Doesn't even try metal, i think the closest i can get is Killswitch with Howards big black man singing. I would comprimise to Slipknot any day in my situation man.
#34
Well, TS, you're into Death Metal, she's into Nu Metal. I got into thrash and death via Nu Metal, so you just need to get your brainwashing skills in gear and ween her into br00tality, and the problem will cease to exist.

Because elitism is exclusive to metal fans? I don't see anything wrong with not liking someone else's music taste. Also, elitism is thoroughly underrated.
