When did this become a crime?

Coming home from the club tonight, I shared a cab with this dude and his girlfriend. On the radio, ET by Katy Perry played and I told the cabbie to turn it up because I liked the song and the dude I caught the cab with told me "That song is gay. Why do you like such crappy music?"

What the hell is so bad about liking music that's played on the radio? I see it a lot on UG too, so I'll ask you guys.

What's wrong with mainstream music?

A lot of it is really catchy, except for the radio rock like Light House, Rob Thomas, or Coldplay which makes me want to shoot something.

It's not like we had a 1000 threads about this before, not at all, people like to feel superior when they bash popular music.

Nah I don't mind some of the pop/chart songs have good beats and tunes.

Hm, did you still end up sleeping with him?

People have different tastes, and unfortunately some are vocal about what they don't like. Just ignore them.

Nothing, just don't go around acting like it's popularity gives it some sort of god status becuase that's usually what breeds the non-conformists.

So he didn't like the song. You're not Anne Frank.

EDIT: That came across more confrontational than I meant it to.

I don't mind mainstream music, but it's not something I go out of my way to listen to (not like I have to, since it's mainstream anyway!!JHufdhduifhsduihfusdhfsdf).

I like that Katy Perry song where she shoots out fireworks from her bewbs!

Music = subjective

If you like it, listen to it.

But my guilty pleasure is Katy Perry.

I'm with the guy in the cab, how can you like katy perry and hate coldplay?

I hate both of them but at least I can tolerate coldplay when a buddy of mine listens to em, however I can't stand ANY katy perry.

Because Coldplay is whiny and shitty and sounds the same.

And Katy Perry has catchy music. Granted, I only listen to about 3 or 4 of her songs, but they're catchy! I just don't see what's so wrong with it.

You can't whine about someone disliking a mainstream artist while you do the.exact.same.thing.

I think both of them are whiny and all the songs sound the same

It would help if I liked their genres.

Why not?

Because you're doing the same thing.

Incidentally, where in your story did the dude you shared a cab with say it was bad because it was mainstream? Maybe he just didn't like katy perry. Same way you don't like coldplay.

Naw, bro. People do it all the time.

And that's a good point. He never did mention mainstream per se; I just made the connection. But Katy Perry is not gay. If anything, liking a hot chick with big tits is completely ungay.

I don't like mainstream music, i prefer music that is different, such as Paul Gilbert and his newer albums, the greatest guitarist ever. I don't see Katy Perry topping his music (Thats not to say she's not bad, she's quite a good singer).

Indie Music = The way to go!

It just so happens I did but don't anymore, I don't listen to the cure (Never heard of them), I have never worn glasses. PG is the best.
