What's up with that anyway? I listen to metal, mainly Mastodon, Megadeth, etc. and I've got a few tracks by them on my cell phone. So people ask to take a look at it and go to the 'music' section first of all. They play a track and then say "I hate this kind of music" or "It's ****" and so on. While they may think whatever they want, I don't like hearing what they think I should listen to or how bad they think my music is. I don't comment on their taste in music, whatever they may listen to. If I like it, all right. If I don't I keep my thoughts to myself. I'm not saying everyone should like the same music I do, or be all merry and positive about it, but am I not free to listen to whatever I want? /Rant

Have you got any similar experiences with this?

You can listen to whatever the hell you want to but when you do you have to be open to argument and prejudice. It's a part of music dude... if everyone liked the same exact genre there would only be one. so ummm deal with it?

Maybe because is megadeth.:P

But seriously.
Yes, and It's very annoying.
Try slipknot or korn next time next time.
Maybe then you'll be socially acceptable.

Seriously though, musical elitism is everywhere. Deal with it - the only person who decides what music you should like is you.

I have an intolerance towards the same thread being made every other day about other people being elitist, and implying they are better than the elitists.

Of course, you're absolutely correct. You'll always find someone who appreciates the same music you do, so music is obviously a very relative thing. I just don't understand why you should be questioned for your taste of music. To me it's nothing to be argumented, as it all comes down to the preference of an individual. But then again, that applies to religion and science aswell, but I can't say that's not a hot topic...

Oh sorry for the misinterpretation.

But that makes no sense at all... technically every band is socially acceptable... unless they're like a group of baby eating cannibalistic rapists. And I'm sure even THEY would still have a handful of fans. So to say that only popular bands are socially acceptable is bullocks.

I don't know whether it's just me but I've found that I don't enjoy listening to the things I once did 3 or 4 years ago. I'm not talking about particular bands but I'm talking about genres as a whole. Now, I really couldn't give a damn about rock-or anything subrock/jazz/shred/classical/blues etc. I've stuck with Chinese Pop music for a long time and I just find it's overtaken me. It's not really a phase because I know from this day onwards, it's all I'll ever want to listen to. I've tried going back to finding new stuff from the genres I used to like and even some I never considered listening to before but it's getting worse with each new listen that's I'm pretty sure I'll never go back.

I'm very content with my musical preference nowadays and I don't know - I take a lot of pride in the music that I like and even more so that not a lot of people like what I like. It just makes everything feel special to me. I don't particularly care what other people listen to because I have something very special that I don't particularly want to share - I feel that it's mine and I don't want to let it go.

Yeah one of my flat mates was like ''I don't understand why anyone would want to listen to slipknot, it's just noise''

Now i'm not a fan of slipknot but i've heard a number of there songs and they're not just random thrashing and screaming (despite what some Ug'ers might say:p. What made it even more annoying was the fact he listened to drum and bass. I don't tell him his music is ****e, i even go on nights out where we visit clubs that play exclusively drum and bass, but i try to enjoy it rather than knock it.

Annoying.

Haven't you ever heard chavs at the back of a bus etc play r'n'b, or chavvy music and thought "Urgh, I hate that crappy music they play?"
What I just said is a lie.

I get **** from the metal-lovers at my school for my taste of music all the time, interestingly enough.

I listen to Death Cab for Cutie, Dashboard Confessional, Arcade Fire, Coldplay, the Postal Service, Arctic Monkeys, Brand New, and Circa Survive quite often and I am told on a daily basis by metal elitists that my taste isnt "heavy" enough or "f*cking emo".

I also listen to metal and hardcore and such, but that is beside the point.

THOUGHT, yes. But you don't walk over to them and tell them to "turn that crappy music off". Especially when they're chavs...

TS said in his post that it's normal to have an opinion about other people's music, but that they should KEEP IT TO THEMSELVES.

most people only listen to mainstream music and decide that other music sucks, i listen to metal because it IS ****ING AWESOME not becuase other people listen to it (i don't konw many people who do)
#34
It's just another case of people presenting their personal opinions as fact. It's perfectly acceptable for someone to not like a certain type of music, but when they start acting like they're better than someone or looking down on someone because they like a certain band or genre, they're just being assholes.

We all have plenty of music we'd never really care to listen to, but you have to understand that it appeals to other people for their own reasons and respect that. There's no "right" or "wrong" with music and anyone that thinks there is is a giant douche.
(the exception is people who listen to music to "fit in" or other reasons that don't involve them actually liking it, but that's a different subject)

Where i live Slipknot is not socially accepted.
On my school i am the only one who like Slipknot.
The only one beside me i know also like them is my uncle who is about 23 or something.

If you want good slipknot u should listen to (sic) and the drum solo from 9.0 live disc 1
The reason i like slipknot is they have 1 of the worlds best drummers. they are 9 guys who play at the same time (i think) and i like number 8s (the singer) voice.
