Everyone has them and everyone is an elitist in some kind of way. I have two prejudices and they're quite silly but I still stick by them. I only listen to music with instrumental focus. In other words, the artist must actually play an instrument. I can never really listen to an artist who doesn't play an instrument. It seems silly, I agree but it's just one of my prejudices. The other prejudice I have is that the music I listen too must have lyrical content that means something to me. The lyrics have to appeal to me. If a band has terrible lyrics it really bothers me.

So you care more about instruments than vocals, but you care more about vocals than instruments?

1)Nothing against classic rock, but i hate when the classic rawk 14 year old kiddos act like it's the only good music in the known universe.
2) When people judge all of Hip Hop by the Hip-Pop they hear on MTV.

Should have made that clear. I mean to say, I need a band/artist who play solos and really focuses on playing their instruments.

I have to agree with you. Rap and hip hop on MTV is sickening. Its not that, its pop, and its terrible. Im not really a fan of rap, but I just listened to some underground stuff the other day with a friend and was impressed at the talent these guys posses.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

I can't stand bands who put guitar solos in their songs just for the sake of having guitar solos.

I have prejudices, but it doesn't necessarily stop me from listening to music that falls under them. I kind of just listen to what makes me feel good, BUT there are certain things that will kind of add plus points to a song/artist: that is, writing their own lyrics, playing their own instruments, and not going out of their way to portray a certain image. Do I listen to music that doesn't fulfill the above? Absolutely. Frank Sinatra didn't write any of his own songs. Johnny Cash didn't write many of his songs either, and I'm practically in love with both those men.

Try Brad Paisley [Country Guitar virtuso who also plays Jazz]. I never liked country until I heard that guy.

I only listen to metal, classical and greek/bouzouki and finish folk. I know I should get in to more it's not that I am prejudice but nothing else interests me quite as much.

I tend to develop an immediate disliking towards any band whos name starts with "The". I always keep an open mind to their music, but can't help getting really bored of all of these "The" bands.

I can't listen to anything that takes itself too seriously. I really can't describe it, there's just this vibe a lot of bands have that I can't stand. I also don't like my bands to be too talented. I think excessive instrumental virtuosity negates the spirit of rock and roll.
Listen to mah discs.

I hate "solo" artists who have a band that write and records all the music in their songs and have other people write their lyrics for them and the "solo" artist is just the person who sings.

I don't like it when people don't write their own music in general.

And I hate all those Pop stars who go into music just because its another way to make money. Some bands have awesome passion for their music and work hard but are hardly known, yet these pop stars are world famous and their only doing it cos it helps their Image, even though they already have a TV show, been in a couple movies, are a model and have their own clothing line.

I can listen to anything except Dragonforce. I dunno why, but that band annoys the hell outta me. I think it's the lyrics.

Like Michael Jackson!


I don't really have any musical prejudices. I did though, I used to be anti-core (metalcore, deathcore, fashioncore) but then I got into some core bands and realized that it's not all bad.

I now have no prejudices.

I used to hate all forms of pop but I don't mind pop now - of course if a primary instrument is involved. Most people say they hate pop but most don't even know what the terms really means. John Mayer, for example has many pop tunes but he's an exceptionally gifted musician.

I clicked on this thread expecting to see that you were trolling for a flamefest. Trying to get people to bash each others genres.
I was wrong!

Even your poll choices are excellent in terms of tolerance.


Marry me ............ Now!

...


BTW, I try to listen to a little of everything, and stay with the stuff I like. The stuff that doesn't speak to me, I figure that's just my own business. I do remark on poor performances in genres that I do enjoy. That way I have something intelligent to add rather than just saying something is rubbish.
