Play something similar that you do like.

One of my friends invited me to a jam session with my acoustic. She wanted to play some Simple Plan, I said let's do Story of the Year.

This thread is almost as pathetic as your grasp of the English language.

EDIT: By which I mean, play the damn song and stop being an elitist.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

I don't compromise and I play whatever I like. When partners start trying to get eachother to do stuff the other doesn't want or like the relationship will fail.
I've started playing flamenco about a year ago and I have nails on my right hand, she doesn't like it but hey it's my life and I can decide to do whatever I want with it. I can try and get her to stop sleeping 10 hours a day but I don't because it won't work and it's her decision and not mine.

depends on one simple thing: how badly do you wanna get laid?
i mean learn a song or two, play them for the special somebody, nobody said you gotta bust out that crappy riff at band practice
i've SEEN a metal head play hey there delila (sp?) and he got laid (i didn't see the sex, i saw the playing lol) so you gotta just go for it, unless it's a really dumb crappy song, hey tehre delila is at least half decent

What would you do, if your son was at home
Cryin' all alone on the bedroom floor,
Cuz he's hungry,
And the only way to feed him,
Is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money,
And his daddy's gone,
Somewhere smokin' rock now, in and out of lock down,
I aint gotta job now, so for you this is just a good time,
But for me this is what I call life

Good question. I don't really know what I'd do.

Fall Out Boy, sad?

Just say you don't like the music, and as said earlier in the thread compromise. Play her something with melody that isn't to heavy. In saying that I don't actually know your music taste, it'd be pretty hard to find a death metal riff that person into pop rock would like.

Just play the song then forget about it, no-one else needs to know about it...except us

dont do it. Just be nice and honest with her. Just say "i really dont like fall out boy" be nice, but be yourself.

compromising is a good idea too. play Fade to black, Cemetery Gates, or Diary of a madman or something like that.

How is that a compromise?

If Metallica covered Sugar We're Going Down Swinging, I'd laugh my arse off.

A compromise would be more playing HIM, although how that's better than Fall Out Boy I have no idea.

Hey, some of us like HIM. Listen to something like Sleep Walking Past Hope, has some really cool guitar in it.

And it's easily a compromise if you are talking about the clean parts of those songs, lots of people I know who aren't into metal would like the clean parts in those songs.

And to Dannyboy1992, it's a matter of intergrity, it's similar to making a type of music just to get more fans, even if you don't like that type of music.

Anyway, on topic- I'd just play it.

Just ask yourself- is it worth 3 minutes of playing something you don't like for 3 minutes of awkward, unsatisfying sex? It usually is.

I'd just play it. If I don't like a band I just don't listen to them. I don't hate them and make fun of them like many of you do. So really playing really is no big deal, plus the more songs someone learns the better.

you could always stop being close-minded and immature and try and listen to her music as well.

my boyfriend likes indie mainly, i like pretty much everything, but we manage to find stuff to listen to. it's called being mature enough to not feel the need to be "cool" by only professing to like one genre. i cannot stand people who slag off music they've never even heard just because it's "gay" or "sad" or "emo" or "not emotional enough" or "not technical enough" or "too slow" or "too fast" or "the lead singer has a moustache so they MUST suck".

seriously, it gets old really fast.

That's why I have 2 hands numbnuts. Besides there are a lot more fun things you can do together if you get the idea.

edit:^If he doesn't like it he doesn't have to play it, if he's close minded then that's his problem and that wasn't what he asked. If someone asks you to do something you don't like don't do it. At least not if it's something as trivial as this.

I actually don't mind HIM, they're reasonably good performers. I saw them support Metallica and the crowd slaughtered them, which I thought was a bit harsh, but it was also really funny to see people do a conga line to Bullet With Butterfly Wings...

And I know it's a compromise, that's why I suggested it, but I'm guessing TS won't do it.

This has never actually happened to me, I was only wondering what most of you would do.

And also I only used Fallout Boy as an example as a lot of people hear don't seem to like playing there stuff, no offense to anyone who does like them loads, I like them quite a lot myself, it's just most of there die hard fans I despise!
