Dear, loveable Pit,

I happen to know someone who continually bashes the music I listen to. This guy also happens to be my little brother. It's the classic example of today's hate-fuelled music face-offs: he listens hiphop, rap and whatnot (I'm not against this, nor do I openly claim it to be crap). I tend to listen to Hot Water Music lately, which is generalised by Wikipedia as Punk Rock, but I actually think it goes way further with all jazzy influences and improvising. Anyhow, whenever he only hears the slightest bit of any music (he's not actually listening) he directly claims it to be junk. In a way, this hurts, for I'm quite a dedicated music lover and when I especially dig a band I don't want it to be ignorantly labelled crap without the slightest consideration. Of course, this insult coming from a short-sighted butcher, I shouldn't take it too high, but it's still very annoying. It did bring up a question though: do you guys ever face these ignorant, musically illiterate dumbheads? How do you usually handle these cases?

tldr;-version: How are you telling someone to shut the crap up about the kind of music you listen to?

He's not targeting the music you're listening to. He's trying to target you. Just think about it that way.

...modes and scales are still useless.

when i play my ipod at work, which is rare because i know everyone hates my music, i constantly remind THEM how horrible it is so they can't complain about it. Just say "doens't this song suck, dude?" and turn it up.

or he's judging it by his values and it falls short.

replace the words "this sucks" or "this is shit" with "I don't like it" and get on with your life.

kick his ass, or just tell him he's an ignorant, mainstream-listening douchebag who wouldn't know what real music/talented musicians are if they hit him in the face.

shut the crap up


Ya know, punk rock is all about being yourself and not caring what others think, so... do that. Also, don't listen to that "dumb head" and maybe he'll "shut the crap up".

Hot Water Music kicks ass though.

Your brother is a Butcher? He slays the meat for your family to eat and live off of? What kind of self-centered, ungrateful brother are you!? If he doesn't like your music tough shit, he is feeding you so learn some respect asshole! .__.

Boil the kettle and pour it on him while he listens to his music. Then ask him if he would prefer Hot Water Music or hot water and music.

I don't get why people always use excuses. If someone sees my music, and doesn't like, I just tell them that's what I like, and they can like what they want.

Though I like most music. So people can usually find something they have heard of while browsing my iPod


Edit: that wasn't really directed at you, JimmyBanks, just people in general

Go on the computer and delete all of his songs and be like

HILT!

You're older than he is, and you're not the one that listens to rap.

Shouldn't it all make sense?

You're his big brother. He's going to hate everything you do. If you really want it to stop, he is your little brother. You could remind him who's the bitch around here.

Grow up TS, everyone is gonna hate what you think, it's a part of life, people are mean, and you can't let them get to you, because they are dumb, and everybody is dumb, we are all just dumb...except me.

Well, if you can't use your wit to shut him up, I guess you should just ignore him. It's not like his opinion matters.

Beat the crap out of him like yr in a moshpit. If yr a real punk, there's no other course of action.
