I’ll listen to whatever the hell I want

Music. People quickly judging you by the music you listen to. People listening to certain types of music to look ‘cool’. Stupid.

A lot of people treat musical genres like it was embedded in their DNA. In the ‘coolness’ strand. They listen to what they perceive as ‘cool’ music, usually some obscure band with obscure sounding instruments. That’s alright, you can listen to whatever you want. But why in the world would you look down on someone listening to other types? I’m sure you’re all gangsta and that only rap can soothe your senses. Smack yo bitch up eh? MP5 be praised!

But it’s just music. Nobody gives a damn. It’s pointless parroting around your music tastes to anybody who will listen. You aren’t cool because you listen to music that’s not mainstream either. Most music doesn’t go mainstream because it’s so crappy nobody wants to listen. Then it’s peddled to all the schmucks looking for ‘underground’ music. Old music is not necessarily better than new music. Ohhhh music changed your life eh? Well guess what? Hannah Montana does that to 12 year olds too I bet.

If you listen to the words, then keep it to yourself for cryin’ out loud. It’s worse than those uppity armchair movie critics looking down their bent noses at people who don’t see the ‘true meaning’ in movie scenes. A beat is a beat. Music is music. Different people like different types.

Coolness is relative. In order, you get

  1. Obscure Band
  2. Major Band
  3. Small-timers
  4. Guitarists
  5. People who listen to ‘cultured’ music
  6. Inanimate objects
  7. Miley Cyrus
  8. Toothpicks

99. Pianists

That is, according to popular ‘coolness’ ratings canvassed from urban youth from different genres.

I’ll listen to whatever the hell I want.

    Bravo! I wholeheartedly agree! Sure music works in different ways to different people, but what is this obsession with the obscure never-heard-of-and-can’t-pronounce-their-names bands?!

    The same goes for all the metal-heads out there.. Hey there are some true hardcore lovers of metal, and I salute you, but then you have the wannabe’s that want to be stereotyped and it’s just so blatantly obvious…

    btw, pianists at 99 huh? πŸ˜› bastard… lol…

    Hear, Hear!

    And I hate it when people say “oh there’s something wrong with you if you don’t like this genre/band/singer/song”. Erm yeah whatever. Like I care.

    BTW what do you mean by ‘cultured’ music?

    Some people like myself mostly pretend to like a certain type of music not only to look cool, but get laid as well. The cooler u are = more likely u get some
    I was in to this heavy metal n shit cos I thought chix would dig da ‘disturbed kid’ thing like in movies etc but doesn’t really work as u need to then make sure u don’t creep them out while also being mysterious to get their interest. This is hard work n not worth effort to try to get laid that way

    Being generally clean n rich helps more than listening to what others think is kewl music
