Because you can say whatever you want online on these forums and have that not impact your life at all.
And some people just really don't like mainstream music or culture.

because a lot of the 14 year old kids like to think of themselves as cool by being "kvlt" on the internet, and think it makes them all unique and noncomformist, and original, and other bull****. I like led zeppelin, i like slash, i love eric clapton, i love jimi hendrix, jimmy page is my hero, i think dire straits are the greatest band to have ever existed, and the beatles are gods the only guitars i own besides a jackson and an ESP are made by fender or gibson, I don't like guitar teachers, i don't listen to death metal, and classic rock and blues are the reason i live... anyone have a fuckin problem with that?

What makes up UG?

Guitarists.

What kind of music do most guitarists play?

Rock and its sub-genres.

Rock music is generally leery of mainstream culture, and some of its sub genres (i.e. punk, metal) are even more distanced. Which is why many guitarists distance themselves from mainstream culture/society.

Which is why UG have an aversion to mainstream stuff

because a lot of mainstream stuff is proven to suck, like Fall Out Boy and Jonas Brothers, and that makes them think John Mayer or classic rock will suck too.

because many are 13 and trying to fit in. they're sadly doing exactly that.

It's just the nature of people like us. We are guitarists, musicians.


Our creative, individual side doesn't let us like mainstream stuff. We are into the whole individuality thing.

I think it's just a majority of the mainstream music just isn't the genre which UG likes.

Simple as that. Their style of music doesn't get much mainstream attention.

Ganoosh for the serious answer. For me personally I think that most of the mainstream culture is just rediculous, and is trying to make everyone the same. I personally love individuality.

Pretty much this, and they fear that it will turn them into a fashion victim.

I don't know about you people but most people I know who 'have an aversion' to mainstream music and/or culture just feel that way because they just don't like it. It all comes down to taste. The people who are bashing people who don't like mainstream music are being more closed-minded than the rest of us. But that's just the way I see things

i agree, but i personally think some mainstream stuff is great. For example, the Green Day album i thought was an incredible CD. that and... well never mind. I guess that's the only mainstream stuff i like. But i agree with ganoosh.

Because they are scared of it. They think they will become like those bratty, spoiled, uptight girls at their schools.

Also, I approve of your username.

EDIT: Also, it is because they think that the music they like is the only kind of good music, and anyone who doesn't listen to their music is ****ing stupid. And because it is mainstream, they despise it because so many people like it, and not their genre of music.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

Maybe some people genuinely like music that is not popular better. It's not a hard concept.
#33
Because most members of UG have a false sense of elitism over the mainstream and the mainstream followers. I play guitar, therefore I know what makes music REAL music. So I hear things most mainstream can't hear. Right?
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Gibson Faded V
Warmoth Strat copy
Epiphone Hummingbird (FS!!)
Ibanez SR400QM
Fender BXR100
Reggae Bass Covers mahn!!!

Maybe some people just don't like mainstream msuic. Maybe some people aren't trying to be cool or different, they just listen to what they want and disregard the fact some music is "mainstream" and some is "underground."

Well partly this and partly what Dirty Makik said, I guess it was because I was always left out by the popular kids who are into mainstream stuff and then I found friends who were into the same kind of things I was, as well as also being alienated. From there I decided that my friends were way better than the "popular" kids and I never wanted to be a "popular" kid because they were all assholes all the time. And I have an I.Q. that is great than that of a monkey

Well personally, I thought the new Green Day album is just ****. But I do like alot of their other stuff. I mean, I'm all for the whole individuality and fuck the mainstream attitude, but I DO enjoy some mainstream stuff. I listen to alot of rap, etc. But like everyone else here, I am generally repulsed by most mainstream things, just because that's the way I am.


Also, there is something that ALL OF YOU NEED TO REALIZE ABOUT MOST MAINSTREAM MUSIC.

Those musicians are business men. We don't like them because we know about music, and we know that they aren't talented or good at what they do, at all. But anybody who doesn't play an instrument or who isn't familiarized with music listens to that stuff and hears the catchy tune, and they like it. It's all for money.


Soulja Boy? He's not a rapper. He's not a musician. He is a business man. He is doing it for the money, and nobody cares because they think it sounds cool. And you know what? Good for him. He has figured out a way to exploit people by paying for cool beats, writing half-ass lyrics and making them sound catchy, and making up contagious dances for the songs. Same thing with the Jonas Brothers.

I hereby deem the above statement incorrect.

though that would describe some peoples attitudes about it, thats not WHY they dislike mainstream music,.
