So today, at my locker, me and my friend Shane are having a conversation. We somehow got into the topic of what bands we have been listening to lately. I mentioned that I had recently started listening to Metallica and Streetlight Manifesto.

Now he's a pretty hardcore ska fan, but when I had mentioned Streetlight, he went crazy. He went off on a tangent on how "You have to be ska to listen to ska", and a whole bunch of other crap. He said that I only like one ska band so i cant be ska, therefore I cant listen to ska. So I tell him that it is only one band, and that I'm not trying to be ska, I just happen to like Streetlight Manifesto. He immediately denounced me as a poser, and walked off.

WTF is this logic?
I have come to the conclusion that he is a "Musical Elitist". Someone who immediately denounces people as posers if they don't follow a strict set of rules on how to like a genre, and that all other genres are crap.

Who is right in this argument, me or Shane?
Is he right and I'm just going insane, or is he really overreacting to the whole thing?
Does anyone else know anyone like this?

TLDR:
A bunch of high school drama about music.

Of course he's right. It is, after all, his opinion.

Elitism is amazing. Anyone that thinks otherwise is an idiot who has crap taste, and is in denial about it all.

You're right, he's being a mong, that would mean that unless you started listening to about 15 bands of the same genre at the same time or you can't listen that genre at all.

Just ignore him.

First of all, Streetlight = Massive Win.

Second of all, at first, when I said the words "my friend likes Ska", I was going to say "he's right". But now I see that he's a douche, and you should destroy his genitals with a hammer.

Ska is supposed to be about having fun and NOT being a douchebag. Your friend appears to be a douchebag, so therefore he shouldn't be listening to Ska.

You have to be ska to listen to ska? So I guess smurfs are the only ones who can listen to blues.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Oh what a surprise, there was this ska guy at school once who was so damn elitist too. Not only for his music, but a complete left-wing-in-your-face twat.

Make sure your always playing Ska when he's around. Jerks like that should be annoyed at every possible chance.

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

Elitists in general hate it when they find out that more than one person likes a band they like.

I started listening to Streetlight manifesto after I read your first post. I hate people like that.

However, I also like that Less Than Jake song All My Friends Are Metalheads, so I'm More Ska than you!!!!! Hahaha.

Anyway, I like all kinds of music, generally if it's a good song then I like it, and that's if I think it's a good song then I like it, regardless of band, genre etc. etc.

Shane himself is a twat.

I only listen to metal (as in like my stereo and stuff) because it's what I love..

But I can tolerate other music.. I'm studying classical in music and I think it's great..

Tell your "friend" to fornicate himself with an iron stick.
