So today I was listening to some stuff on my ipod (RHCP, Led Zeppelin, Steve Miller, Allman Brothers, Wolfmother, etc.) and these two people in my class were listening to Taylor Swift, Nickelback, Seether, 3 Days Grace, Rap, Some more country (radio crap) and I just said I didn't like any of that stuff and they told me all you listen to is old crap. I then tried to explain that it's better in my opinion and that all the radio stuff sounds alike....then i said i really hate Nickleback and they were like no I love Nickleback every song they sing is amazing!!! He then told me to stop listening to my "hippy music" haha. This wasn't really a fight just a discussion and I was wondering if there's any good songs or things to say to convince them that actual takes actual talent. Ya im bored....

All those bands use talent, you're being as closed minded as they are....I only like one Nickleback song and that's Side of a Bullet....

Your music sucks. Try listening to some real music. You know, some Diabelli, Schubert, J. S. Bach, Clementi, Haydn, not that devil music.

See what I did there?

I'm not saying that they can't listen to what they want.....When did i say that? I just think they shouldn't be close minded to what i listen to. I've listened to what they listen to and decided i don't like it. They just think it sucks and haven't listened to it
#11
You listened to all those bands at once? That is amazing?

But back to the point at hand. I don't like any of those bands you listed. I do however like Nickelback, along with bands such as Hypocrisy, Dissetion, Bloodbath and Opeth (since just recently, actually). What do this prove?

Well, it proves that I don't listen to the techicalities behind the music; I listen to the music. That is all it is, music, and if you have to put labels and laws on that, well then prepare to be refered to as the Hitler of Music for the rest of your days.

maybe they have listened to it. i don't need to listen to steve miller's entire catalogue to know i don't like him.

Why would you do that?

Why not just let people listen to what they like?

You don't see me telling you what to listen to do you?

I agree with the TS, and the TS wasn't trying to put their music down. He clearly said that he just didn't prefer their music and they were the ones who put him down for listening to "crap" music. It is funny everyone always sides with the ignorant.

At my school, it is so funny. I was listening to Dream Theater's Systematic Chaos (which came out in 2007.) And a kid was like "you need to start listening to some new stuff, that old stuff is long gone." I said, "this is new." He says "yea, well, it doesn't SOUND new." Lol since when is "new," a genre?

I was just telling them what i listen to see if they like it. Since i did use to listen to the radio stuff a long time ago and then i found out about what i listen to now. I'm always open to musical suggestions too.

Have you listened to any of the bands I listed?

No?

So when you give them recommendations and they don't listen, you want to enlighten them, yet you ignore my recommendations?

That's a trauma twofer.

Talent is relative. I like Rock Music. The Allman Brothers Band and Pink Floyd/Syd Barrett are two of my favorite artists to listen to, but compared to Mozart and Liszt, they don't have an enormous amount of talent in terms of skill, theory, etc.

Debussy, in my opinion, isn't as good a composer as Mozart or Bach, yet he is still by far my favorite to listen to.

You my freind, are what we like to call arrogant and close minded.

All music takes talent, different bands are good in the their respective genres.

So please do us all a favour and get out.

ok seether, 3 days grace and nickelback are talented at what they play. Which just doesn't seem difficult or take much skill to play in my opinion. But sure they're talented. And you've seen that i was just trying to show them what i listen to

You dismissing your their music as popular and trendy, yet you listen to trendy music yourself (Ledzeplin, Wolfmother, ect. Where popular 30 years ago, and are just as popular now). If your going to dismiss people's taste as trendy and popular then atleast have a taste for more underground music than that. They listen to radio crap? I could find all of the bands you listed as your kind of music playing on the radio.

"...I just think they shouldn't be close minded to what i listen to..."
and telling them that they need to listen to different music when you say their music is garbage. Hypocrisy.
