Now, before you guys flip out I love a huge variety of music from dubstep to indie to melodic death metal. However, my girl is pretty much only into Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Paramore. I tried to be cool with it but I can't stand it anymore. So I went and tried to show her some good bands such as The Black Keys, Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Silversun Pickups, Sublime, Velvet Revolver, Counting Crows. Now, I just wanted to get some decent to good bands in and I wanted to try a variety on her, but she thought all of it was complete shit. Eventually she liked a couple Incubus songs and City and Colour. Really I'd be cool with anything thats not mainstream pop/pop rock, but I'm having difficulty finding bands or artists that she could get into as stepping stones to other genres and bands (none specifically). And dont get me wrong, I'd love it even more if she went metal but that's just not gonna happen.
(tl;dr)
My question to you pit monkies is what bands or artists do you have in mind that I could introduce to her to improve her music taste?

That's a pretty subjective question

Rise Against, Blink-182, MxPx, Screeching Weasel, and other various pop punk/punk bands will work on getting her into more rock-ish stuff,

I think we can all agree that 99% of music out there is better than Taylor Swift and Katy ****ing Perry, so really I guess my question could be just "can you name some good bands for me? but think light"

Who says her music taste needs improving? She doesn't actively try to fully convert (or improve as you say) you to her shit does she?
#12
how about you stop being a retard and realise that she might legitimately not like that kind of music. Stepping stones don't mean shit if she just doesn't like anything in those genres.

Why does it matter to you what your girlfriend listens to?

I'm not saying I love them, but they aren't bad. Do you have any suggestions then?

Ooh, make her listen to good rap, like Nas, MF DOOM, NWA, and Public Enemy, especially going off the Public Enemy to more political based music, like the pop punk bands I mentioned above.

I think you guys are missing the point. I know for a fact none of you actively listen to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. Don't even try to troll. Maybe I'm asking the wrong question. I think I've lost faith in the pit, none of you even try to be entertaining and troll me anymore

Damn bro, your music taste is shit. You should break up with her and go back to masturbating to pictures of David Grohl.

DO NOT MAKE HER LISTEN TO MF DOOM!

He is the most overrated underground rapper of this generation all time.

Dude, listen to what I suggested.

I don't actively listen to Taylor Swift, but I do actively listen to Katy Perry. I also really actively listen to Paramore. They are good musicians that write/sing songs with good hooks. Your girlfriend should like the bands I suggested, and they aren't "lame" like the three aforesaid.

They're my favorite band right now, I think.


Haven't listened to them in ages, admittedly, but I had stints where I listened to just them for days on end.

^ Have you heard the new album? It's a lot slower than even Get Better, but it's pretty good.

Seriously? Overrated? I guarantee you if I asked anyone in my school what they thought of DOOM they would have no clue what I was talking about. As for his skill, his lyrics are great and his flow is great, plus he's a kick-ass producer.

So somebody is a troll because they like a pop country singer? God forbid somebody has a different opinion than you.

That's why I said underground. I never was a fan of his flow. He always sounds out of breath

I still think Madvillainy is the most overrated rap record ever released.

Yup, pretty good as you say. But I think I like their compilation, The First Collection best.

Same. It's a shame they'll probably never sound like that again, but oh well.
