Artists in general. Art requires an open mind and open minds are usually more liberal.

Country music is an exception though.

Rock and roll is rebellion. If you like and believe in all the same things as the establishment then what are you rebelling against?

Because a lot of musicians come from poor backgrounds, making them more likely to be liberal/left-wing unless their thick as pigshit

It's threads like this that separate grammar Nazis from only mildly anti-Semitic grammar conservatives.

Yeah, I've noticed that. Although some genres' fans seem to be more likely to be conservative/reactionary than others (black metal, modern country, etc).

Quote by RU Experienced?
You've noticed a trend based on anecdotal evidence that does not generalize to the whole musical community.

At no point did he say it applied to the entire commnity. He said "many", not "all". Many doesn't even have to mean a particularly large amount. Next time try to read the post properly before posting such a retarded response.

I tend to associate artists with intelligence (quite often wrong) and being conservative with being stupid (not quite so often wrong).
#20
The tight conservative budget has no room for such frivolousness as music...unless you're gonna make a big profit.

Wait, is this conservative: the modern government? Or conservative: the philosophy? The philosophy states that you believe that people are too stupid for their own good and need something more powerful than society to keep them in line. There's probably lots of musicians that believe that...

Varg Vikernes one of the most fascist musicians ever, and he just looks like a total nerd.

To be creative you have to push boundaries and stray from your comfort zone...conservatives tend to have a boner for the past. That's about all I can come up with.

You're being a pedantic douche. In the context of the post we can infer "many" means a preponderance of musicians. If I sampled bluegrass and country musicians I'd probably find a greater proportion of conservative musicians. Since TS is probably a 15-20 year old from a middle class family his demographic is more likely to be liberal.
#26
It's because appreciation of art and liberalism are correlated with a psychological trait called 'openness to experience.' Liberals like progress and new things, while conservatives like tradition and the familiar. Ergo, liberals are more likely to appreciate art.

I find it's a fairly even split, you just tend to think more of the liberal politically active musicians first because rock music was steeped in the progressive movement in the late 60's with women's rights and African American rights and all that, as well as the fact that the more prominent folk musicians, which is where a lot of the politically themed contemporary music comes from, seem to be liberal. Granted there are conservative folk musicians, but they're overshadowed by giants like Dylan.

I know where I stand and I'm glad those I listen to all are on the same side as me.

I don't think I listen to a single artist which my ideology go against. I'm glad. On the other hand I do not believe I'd accept myself listening to an artist being on the right wing as I find that way of ideology and politics pathetic and wrong.

Only the musicians who really have something to add to the political agenda and current world situation. I dare anyone to name one musician who is right wing who's either remotely good or remotely influential.


James Hetfield.
Richard Wagner.


Take your pick.

James Hetfield.


And he has not been influential to anything I listen to whatsoever. He can live with his views for all I care. He has influented most things I find bad with music anyway.

Wagner was right wing in the 17th century? I can almost relate bro.

Johnny Ramone(Not a punk fan, but the guy essentially invented what led to modern punk, that's inarguably influential)
John Petrucci
Johnny Cash

Add those to the list, as well.

Well, I know I don't enjoy music written by right wing supporters. As far as I know. If anyone wants to prove me wrong I'm open for it. I doubt anyone can find a single one from what I listen to, to be right wing.


Quote by necrosis1193


Oh well, never been a big fan of The Ramones either. Don't know if it's a coincidence or not.

But I seldom relate to an artist if I can't read their lyrics and relate. If I find their lyrics about politics to go against my own I seldom if ever like it.

This. Besides, music that isn't left wing or apolitical is teh suck.
