Ok, there have been threads about music you're embarrassed that you like. Obviously we all instinctively know what some of these bands are. Jonas Brothers, Fall Out Boy, blink-182, Katy Perry, etc. They're all really simple (and "bad") but we all know they're catchy as hell.

But some bands people say they're embarrassed to listen to but there doesn't seem to be a reason for it. (Like My Chemical Romance; come on, some of their guitar parts are pretty ****ing good for pop punk.)

So... can anyone say what the criteria is for a band to be embarrassing to listen to?

EXACTLY. That's what I think. But I'm posing this question to the people who are embarrassed to admit they listen to certain bands.

To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

+1 to this dude. I gave up caring what people think of my music tastes a long time ago and am now proud to say that I regularly listen to Imogen Heap and Frou Frou.

There's no problem with them. The problem is their fans who are usually try hards and/or 12 year old girls/people who dress like 12 year old girls.

That's true. I like My Chem, but I wouldn't see them live because it's always full of obese emo girls.

I would say things like the wiggles, spice girls etc are pretty embarassing to like...

At my school, people reckon that liking Metallica like hardcore liking them is pretty embarasing so i supose that it just depends on the main genre that is liked in the area you live

For me I am never embarrased by the music that I like because I really don't give a ....hahahahhahah. As long as it good I like it...and usually other peeps seem to catch on lol.

MCR =/= pop punk.

And my guess is that some people don't want to be laughed at for what music they like, so some of it, they hide. Ya know, the weird or out-of-place stuff.

I felt like video game music and classical music was embarrassing to listen to. I just began to not give a shit and listen to it anyways.

The answer:

Not give a shit. You're missing out on some great music.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

Its not that hard to figure out. My Chemical Romance, FoB, all those ****ers are simply rejected by the majority of guitar players. So why would anyone want to waste time on a band that many guitar players hate? It seems like good logic, but its just false reasoning.

It happens all the time, if you've gone thru middle school or high school you should know exactly what I'm talking about
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

dude, that's such a good song although I have to admit, most of their others I have grown tired of and I'm not too anxious for their new album.


but I'm stickin with the main trend that you shouldn't care at all what other people think. there's a reason you like the songs you like and that reason is not "because other people like it" blah blah blah.

have your own opinion and don't be embarrassed to listen to something when someone else doesn't.

I have Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Right Said Fred, Savage Garden, Michael Jackson, Blondie, etc on my iPod.

At the same time, I have the bands I primarily listen to, like Sex Pistols, Shinedown, Nirvana, Seether, Sublime, RATM, etc.


I enjoy blasting the "embarassing" music and singing along with it as loud as possible too...

I listen to MCR because I like them, but I don't openly shout it from the rooftops for the fact that the majority of guitarists who are closed minded elitist pricks will lump me into a stereotype that I feel is misrepresentative of me, my abilities and my personality. That is, I'd say 'MCR' and they'd go 'clueless emo chick who knows nothing about music' instead of considering the different, more reputable - if you will - bands that I listen to including Metallica, Dream Theater and the like.
#29
It's elitism. I love My Chemical Romance, Blink-182, Paramore (OK mostly because Hyaley Williams is damn hot) but I'm not ashamed of it. My MCR patch sits proudly with my Nirvana, Alter Bridge and Dio patches.

Because it sucks or is made for little girls (Jonas Brothers, Hannah Montana, etc.)
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.
#31
Ha, just go to my profile and look at the bands listed there. Flame material and I don't give a shit. I am a proud Nickelback fan, newer A7X fan (hate their screaming stuff), Green Day fan, staind fan, and so on. I really don't care what the pit thinks. It is the kind of music I play and want to continue playing not only because its what pleases me and I feel is more thought out lyrically and sonically, but because its where the money is. I mean Nickelback's last album went 10x platinum, I think, worldwide; 7x I believe here in the US.
#32
i think some music is embarrassing because people are afraid that the music they like is so different that others can't possibly understand. no one wants to be judged. it seems silly but is true.

i do this, though it's easy because i'm eclectic.

but yeah, i'll listen to everything named thus far. i even listen to Christian bands though i'm agnostic (but i grew up a Christian listening to Christian Rcok)

idk. when people tell me a band i like sucks, i either say "f-you, i'll listen to what i want" or "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

personally along with my nevermore and meshuggah i like a bit of japanese pop music thrown in. probably because nobody you know really likes it and it's for some reason it's considered uncool. my school is entirely composed of nut jobs like me though so there's really no "normal" or "cool" or really any fads.

take, for example, the guy who walks around with iron maiden shirts and long hair also sings opera, and very well i might add. then there's the guy who swears that german pop music is awesome but also enjoys technical death metal and flamenco music. maybe the really moke girl who always talks in pidgin and loves slipknot.

everyone has their quirky little interests, musical or otherwise. deal with them.
