Searchbarred, found nothing recent or relevant.

Looking at your mp3 player, what is the average age of the musicians to whom you listen?
I did a quick count and my average musician age is 52. Whether this is something I should be proud of or ashamed of as a 22yr old girl I do not know.


Well?

Probably late 20's to mid 30's.

About 3k songs on there, I'm not counting. I'd guess they're all older than me. I'd also guess that they're, on average, twice my age, so about 35.
#6
Uh, probably 20somethings. Most of them, that is.

But you never did.

Actually figuring this out would require far too much effort. If I had to guess, I'd say most are between 25-35.
#8
No one in their right mind will actually find out, considering most people here have anywhere from 500 - 10,000 songs on their iPods.

Everyone will just take a random shot at it, and the general consensus will be anywhere from 25-35 years old.

I have 1.4Tb of music and the figure I give in the OP is something I actually sat down and worked out.

I lead no life....although most of the musicians I like are old enough to be grandfathers.

Or you could use half a brain, sample 20 randoms, and average it out. BTW I used age pre-mortem.

The reason your average is 52 because thats the average age of Rush. Seriously, I checked.

It's not really.. Pretty close though.. They're all 57

You must have like three bands on your player. No way in hell am I gonna take waste the time to go through all the bands on my ipod and average their ages.

I had to do that instead of a real lolstack, because the number of lols would exceed the image limit. But dear god

I listen to a lot of older stuff and a lot of newer stuff. It probably averages out to about, I dunno, 38 or so. That's sort of my lucky number anyway. If you have some classical music it's really gonna skew that average though!
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

Sad thing is that I know the average age of Rush to be 57.3 (Neil Peart is 58 in a few days time).


Why did I even bother to work that out?!

Really? I have 8000+ songs. I don't have time for that. I have stuff ranging from, oh, 16 year olds to 90 year olds.
