Hello the Pit, today I was sitting infront of a person I hate in class (the person is an arrogant ignorant asshat). I overheard his conversation with his douchebag friend, they were talking about music, so I was like 'Oh you probably listen to gay bands like nickelback or brokencdye' but then I heard the guy mention the words "Dream Theater", and instantly I went numb.
Dream Theater is the band that helped me through my toughest times in my life, the song "Another Day" kept me from comitting suicide. 'The Spirit Carries On" helped me get over a loss of a close relative. The 12 step suite helped a friend kick his drug and alcohol addiction.
I heard him say "I listend to "The Dark Eternal Night- that song kicks ass, i like how the riff goes dun dun dun.. dunanananuna...., and I can't remember how the rest of the song goes, i cant be bothered listening"
At this point I was like
But he carried on saying, "Oh yeah I'm downloading their whole discography from the pirate bay at the moment; I'm like their biggest fan."
Now I was f--king furious. This person is downloading Dream Theater's whole library of work without a single bit of respect for the band. I worked my ass off to buy Dream Theater's CDs, I haven't even heard a "Dramatic Turn of Events" yet because my parents have been made unemployed, and money is tight, but I don't want to disrespect the band I owe so much by downloading their album for free.

Now I can't listen to a single Dream Theater song to cheer myself up because i keep thinking about that f--kwit's face, because he's also listening to Dream theater, and that just spoils everything.

tl; dr: A guy I hate so much has discovered and started to listen to the band that means so much to me and my life, and I can't listen to them anymore because I keep remembering the ****** who thinks he's their "No.1 Fan" just because he likes one riff from one of their songs.

What do I do Pit? Am i being selfish and butthurt? Has this ever happened to you?

Yes. They can listen to whoever the hell they want and it's incredibly childish that you are not listening to it just because you found out they do.

EDIT: And the bit about downloading: many people download these days, he's not the only one who acquired Dream Theater illegitimately. I download most music and I only ever buy CD's of very special bands who I think need the support.

Also, you can take this however you want, but I'm serious when I say that I've never met anyone in person who liked Dream Theater and wasn't a total sleeze, and that's before they've revealed they like DT. The last DT guy I met I almost walked away in the middle of talking because he was sssssuuuuuucchh a sleeze, my god. It was painful.

Im not listening to Dream Theater just because I think its 'cool' and its super complicated and everything. I listen to it because it means my life to me. If you missed it:
-It stopped my committing suicide
-Helped me deal with the deaths of close relatives
-Helped stop a guy killing himself and his family with drugs and alcohol

And yes i agree, some DT fans are fat ugly nerds who jerk off to Petrucci, but i can assure you, i am not one of them. Edit: I am a girl...

And no im not spending my money on Cds when my parents are unemlopyed, that was BEFORE, when they had JOBS.

Yet you still have some sort of God complex in which those below you may not listen to Dream Theater? Come on, seriously...

Look, it's not rocket science. DT is a widely known rock band that many people around the globe listens to. You don't get to pick who those people are.

So you drove your family into poverty with DT records? Nice.

People take different things out of music. People use the "I'm their biggest fan" all the time so chill out yo.

Just be glad they are listening to music with some substance, you should be encouraging it.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

lol

I've had something similar happen to me before.

My older brother introduced me to metal. What I found funny is that occasionally he would show me "so-and-so" band and I may/may not have said to myself "Ohh, thats something I could see myself listening to." If I happened to like it, he would start dissing it and stop listening to it in a really obvious way. You know what I did about it? I just kept listening to whatever the hell I wanted to listen to regardless of what his insecure ass did.

Actually, if I really wanted to I could just pretend to get really into his favourite bands just to f**k with him and have a good laugh at how he dealt with that; it would be pretty funny I think.

That's the point where you tell them to shut the fuck up and give them a real metal bands CD, like something by Gojira

I actually have no idea. They were lumped in with Nickelback and have an incredibly lame name, so I just kind of assumed they suck.

And there's nothing wrong with listening to music that appeals to 15 year old girls...assuming you're with 15 year old girls.
