I was wondering, what genre has the most close minded fans? I would have to say either classic rock, punk, or indie. I love punk, but I'll admit I'm a little close minded when it comes to metal and classic rock. What do you guys think?

As interesting as the topic is, I think this won't go well.

Guys, atleast try not to turn this into a flamefest.

Black metal. The general majority of them tend to be extremely elitist and close minded. Anything made after the second wave of black metal, anything with semi-decent production, and anything even the slightest bit "mainstream" is terrible and needs to be eradicated, according to them.

Not all black metal fans are like that of course (like me ).

Punk

mainly because there is very little that matches real old school punk in terms of modern "punk" bands

Metal by an outrageously huge margin

EDIT: Let me explain. Quite alot of my mates have needlessly argued with me for getting The Beatles "White Album" for my birthday a few years ago. I said I liked the band, and they said "Why don't you like what a normal 15 year old likes? EWveryone I know is a metallica fan, and so am I. Jesus Christ you don't have to be so ****ing wierd all the time, just go with the flow". This actually hurt in many ways.

I've also drawn a conclusion. Most people who hate electronic music are Metallica fans. And so far I haven't been proved wrong =]

Anti-Flag are horrible. Look on the UG punk boards, we're all pretty close minded but still the awesomest board on UG. There are exceptions though. Actually the only genres really dislike there are pop rock, metal, and most classic rock.

Polka elitists. They'll lynch you for bringing up the thought of playing Enya or Yanni during one of their oopma dance sessions.

I like classic rock and anything else just blows


Exhibit A!

Me, I have no idea. There are close-minded morons in every genre.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Okay, I just came to realise.

Jazz.

Jazz snobs are the most close minded people in the world. I know a jazz snob who asked what my display picture was of.. ...my display picture was the Sgt. Peppers album cover.

pop/mainstream and probably fans of old 70s~80s pop/romance

but my own opinion, it really depends on how closed minded the listeners are

People who get offended when you say "So-so band sucks" are not very bright because you dissed the band, not the person.

Metal. I don't dress metal because I don't want to associate with close-minded Metal fans, as they are strangely attracted to a person wearing a cannibal corpse shirt.

Plus they're smelly.
