Title says it all. What were some of the popular (whether it be on a mass scale or something your friends did) that you just never really caught on to, whether you now for sure or not.


1.) I never have, and probably never will, get into mosh pits. I see the point, they look entertaining, but I just don't like them. I go to concerts to listen and soak in the music, not get my nose broke.

2.) "Sex" bracelets. You know, those little $0.25 cent pieces of plastic made into bracelet, and if you broke it, depending on the color you would have to perform some kinda of sexual deed, whether it be hetero or homosexual in nature, on a person. I always thought they looked cool for people, but I never liked them. Besides, my wrists are HUGE, so it's not like they would fit.

So, what about you guys (and girls)?

Not all music comes from those bands you idiot. My favorite kinda music is CLASSICAL you fool. And for the metal that I listen to, it stems from jazz, not rock.

Playstation and Final Fantasy. Just never sparked my interest.

Edit:

MTV
Techno
Rap/Hip-Hop
Slipknot

Sorry, I had to pick at ya.

And he's telling the truth, even though I love CR bands, he doesn't HAVE to like them seeing as he backs up his tastes with some INSANELY good bands. Not to mention he's a stellar player.

Fingerpicking, but thats not the kind of classical I meant. I mean Beethoven, Tchaikovsy, Brahms, Paganini, Bach, etc

I never got into the whole 'shave half your head to show how cool you are' that's going on in my school. All these chicks now look like transgender prostitutes.
I never got the whole techno + E-tardedness of kids today, or the self-mutilated look, fake bisexuality, sk8er, classic rock faggotry, video games 1337, pot, punk, etc.

I'm gonna be one to say bravo for not falling into what seems to be a necessary Classic Rock fanboyism for a period of time for any guitarist. While I do like most of those bands, they're a bit overhyped if you ask me, and surrounded by far too much elitism.

As for fads I never got into... Makeup on guys, tight pants, Beatlemania (I tried, I really tried...), American Idol, Drugs, AIM lingo, etc. etc.

No problem.

I DID get into mocking it, though. It's just SOOOO fun.

I mean. I'm not particularly a fan of Classic Rock. I just respect it. And I don't like seeing it written off as "all those stupid oldies bands" by some narrow-minded prick.

Pfft narrow minded prick. The same guy who listens to Necrophagist, Tupac, DJ Method, Shakira, and Panic at the Disco in one car ride. I like blues, jazz, country, classical, metal, and SOME hip hop with nice beats, and some techno. I do not like classic rock, and hair metal. That is all.

I don't think I can say just one specific genre, because I haven't heard all music from each genre, and it's not really fair of me to judge it based on the crap I have heard.

Pokemon (i really like dragon ball Z, pokemon i just couldnt get into)
crazy bones
fall out boy, panic at the disco, mcr, atreyu, underoath, etc
uggs
hellogoodbye
jeffree star
the party monster scene (i enjoyed the movie, but i cant stand the e-tards that go around saying, "i'm not addicted to drugs i'm addicted to glamour" :@
and more that i can't think of
