Am I the only one who has to deal with them on nearly a daily schedule? It's known around my "group" (I use that word very lightly) that if you need a new band that I can usually find something to fit your need.

So for a recent example a friend tagged me in a Facebook note asking all his friends for music. So I just started calling off bands that I could think of. One of them was Death Cab For Cutie. Hey, I like em and I think Ben Gibbard is a musical genius. But of course there is the kid who thinks he will be cool to call out that I mentioned them (and Daft Punk) to express his musical knowledge. I said its cool if he doesn't like them but to not call me out because of it.

So he's ranting on and on about how homosexual my tastes in music are an blah blah blah...

So who else always has the pleasure of talking to these stubborn minded people?

I LOVE Daft Punk



The kid said that you don't have to have any knowledge or skill to play their music so I sent him a picture of their pyramid and he stopped commenting on it.

You're close minded. I don't like DCFC because they don't suit my taste in music. That doesn't make me close minded because I actually listened to them.

But trying to tell me that I'm close minded because you like them and I don't is idiotic.

I agree. I like quite a bit of rap and when someone thinks they are witty for saying "cant spell crap without rap!!111" I too want to cry.

Perhaps "narrow minded" was a bit much. But if you saw this kid's backing to anything, you would agree. He just says everything is gay and Gibbard is Mercury's lost gay lover.

Besides, his favorite band is Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit.

Again, so what? He's a music retard. And I like both Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit. Yet I listen to Led Zep, Daft Punk, etc.

He's just trying to fit and and failing.

ok ok. What I should've said is: Anyone who dislikes a band simply because they are not of a certain genre or because they're not "brutal" is close minded. IMO Death Cab is one of the best bands out there.

Also, DCFC sucks insurmountable amounts of dick. But people who think otherwise aren't retards. They just have different taste.

People are entitled to like and dislike whatever. I myself don't like 90% of metal I've heard and wounder why anyone thinks Job For a Cowboy is enjoyable but I don't make fun of it.

And comments like your first sentence make you just seem immature.

Constantly, everybody in my town listen ti rap and Reaggaeton, the call me Emo all the time.

They couldn't recognize a Metalhead from an Emo if their lives depended on it.

Lol, Jonas Brothers and DCFC and 50 Cent and Taylor Swift and Cannibal Corpse and Slaaaayer and Dragonforce ar so gaaaaaaaay olololololol.

Yes. I deal with it all the time. I actually punched a guy in the crotch for continually telling me that Country was gay. Gay =/= synonym for stupid, and insulting musical tastes don't make you cool.

I bet this thread would be completely different if OP would've said Nickelback instead of Death Cab For Cutie.

I never said they weren't. I was just pointing out the fact that calling someone an idiot because of their taste in music after defending yourself from them doing the same to you, is moronic.

And that's because I am immature.

Given that a pop-music-bot could write Nickelback's music (and may have), you're probably right.

first of all, Death Cab For Cutie are gods, as well as Daft Punk

second of all, all the time...ALL THE TIME, partially due to my love of No Doubt

but I vehemently argue with idiots who think bands like MCR or FOB are Emo...NOBODY KNOWS WHAT IT IS! and it annoys me...

There was some idiot on another message board that I visit who insisted that bands who "can't hang" with Guns N' Roses are p*ssies and their music shouldn't be listened to. He was going on and on about how bands/songwriters who express their emotions in their songs are "homos" and he shot down every single suggestion saying things like "they aren't hard enough", "his voice is too high-pitched and emo" (that was when I suggested Coheed and Cambria), and other close-minded crap like that.

If JFAC was the first band you thought of when you said "metal" you need to listen to more metal. I like some JFAC but there are way better bands out there that I like that describe metal better.

That being said, I don't really like DCFC, I just don't like the sound of their music. I give them props for making music many people enjoy though.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.
