The topic in Movies called "movies people love but you hate" inspired me to do this post, sort of the opposite though. I'm not too interested in how many of us don't like Nickelback or Michael Bolton, rather what's some music you dig that the people in your life have an extreme aversion to.

Feel free to post Youtube examples, the forum is diverse enough that maybe several will actually support your decision to enjoy Mr. Bungle.

Most of the people I hang out with have pretty good taste in music, but can't handle some of the admittedly less accessible stuff I listen to which is often a fair share of my overall listening habits. The glaring example would be Captain Beefheart who happens to be one of my favorite musicians. I've introduced several people to it and to date I haven't found anyone who shares my affection for Trout Mask Replica.



Yet another example of music I love but my friends hate would be electronic artist Fennesz. His music tends to be sort of formless, I enjoy how you kind of have to be an active listener and find the music in it. Needless to say, I am alone here as well.



My final entry is from the extremely obscure band Yowie that I stumbled upon somewhere in the internet's annals. It seems to me to be some twisted pedigree of technical/math rock. I find it extremely impressive and frequently dance to this in my underwear. No one else does, possibly except for me and the band themselves.

I also appreciate Captain Beefheart and his Magical Band alot. I got introduced to him by a friend (whom has a similar taste in music) and I looked for more albums from him. Not everything is as good but overall he got some good songs.

And indeed, not alot of people can appreciate him... which is something I've also noticed biggrin.gif .

Most of my friends are big fans of ska, reggae and dubstep. That kind of style is probably my favorite too, but I listen very broadly. For the most part, my taste in metal and punk isn't met with much enthusiasm from my mates, nor is my love for stoner rock. They really despise the latter, actually. tounge.gif

I'm pretty lucky in this respect. If I like something usually it rubs off them except for maybe some PsyTrance which I'd only listen to when out or at a festival. Generally it's O.K.

I dig it too (excluding Brittany Spear or the Backstreet Boys). And '80s pop.

But I have a varied taste in music. Most of my friends hate older rap or rap where the lyrics maintain some intelligence. They'll only listen to Weezy and Lil Wayne and all of that sh*t. I tried to persuade them that there is much better rap out there, like Nas, MF DOOM, Immortal Technique, etc. but they just never give it a chance. The majority of them like country music as well. That's really the only genre I refuse to enter. Not bashing it, just not my thing. I'm from New York so I'm more used to urban rap, punk, metal, rock, alternative, r&b, trip hop, etc.

Anyways, the band I like that most of my friends dislike is Green Day. And most of the people on this site hate them as well. They've just been my favorite band since I was, like, 4. And they're the only band whose lyrics speak out to me like no other artists' lyrics could. And they've become my main inspiration for my songwriting and wanting to get into the music industry. They went from playing in people's living rooms (and even crashing there for the night) to selling out arenas and stadiums worldwide. Just sort of amazes me.

My friends aren't very keen to Billy Joel, Pink Floyd or Counting Crows either. 3 of my other favorite artist/bands. Seems they only wanna listen to stuff like Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Sum 41 (f*cking posers).

/rant over.

Yea I have a ton of early 90's guilty pleasures, mainly Dance Artists: KLF, Technotronic, Soul II Soul, Black Box, SNAP!, Crystal Waters, Haddaway, C&C Music Factory, Dee-Lite, Quad City DJ's. The list goes on, I'm sure.

Hearing that stuff just makes me think of being a kid again so I always turn it up.

They dislike my favorite artists passionately (Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits), but in turn, I do the same. I'm not a giant fan of Tupac, Akon or T.I. but we get along just swell.

Oh God, where do I start. I don't keep much company (that's another story) but that I do keep probably refer to me as "the one with a sh*t music taste". It's quite ignorant in a way - I'd never rag on them for it, but I digress. He's already been mentioned, but Captain Beefheart raises a few eyebrows in my circle. I struggle to find anyone who actually likes him. I think what first drew me to him was his voice, it was like something I'd never heard. I discovered him through Frank Zappa, who I've listened to consistently for many years now. Again, I'll struggle to find anyone with a genuine interest.

I also don't like it when I tell people what I like to listen to (in bars and such, I'm not a mad bastard who'll just tell any old fool in the street) and they assume it's because I strive to be different, that really annoys me. I'll tell them I like Venetian Snares and they'll either shrug or actually have a listen and then dismiss my tastes because they think I'm listening to them just to be off the beaten track. Buckethead, who's one of my absolute favourite musicians, also makes people pull faces. Far be it from me to be bothered, but I think if they gave him a listen they wouldn't find it so bad. I just think the pale mask and bucket combination puts some people off.

Some Venetian Snares for those that feel curious...

I'm going to repost since my last post wasn't quuuite that precise

I listen to pretty much artists from pretty much genres, but the main genre for me is hip-hop.
I have one friend who is all about it (much more mainstream then what I listen to, though) and nothing else, a few who listen to everything and by that, rap too.
My best friend listens to metal and stuff but he is into Eminem and Linkin Park too, though. But I don't share intrest into that genre with my friends that much.

I also listen to ska punk, reggae and dubstep rather much and my best friend likes Billy Talent and Green Day but that's just 'bout it, I aside from that I don't share those genres with my friends at all.

I pretty much share intrest in music with my girl (space) friends - don't think of it as homo as it sounds like.

Mexican music by my former co-workers, I couldn't stand it. We had three people who loved METAL, more who liked rock, and the rest, country. No one got along on a musical level, needless to say

Most of my friends are really mainstream and they think don't think that many hip hop songs sound very energetic. I can also listen to reggae and my friends are like what the f*ck is this sh*t but I enjoy it. Then again, it's the same way when it comes to me disliking my friends' music.

Basically everything I listen to, my friends don't. Most of them don't really hate my music, but some of them can't stand it. And it works the other way around. I don't like most of their music either.

I adore post rock but most people I know can't stand it. I think they prefer to listen to their auto tune lil wayne and other mobile phone garbage but whatever I guess that's part of growing up in the UK and around trashy kids who feed into the horrible.

A lot of my friends are extremely ignorant when it comes to music and when I so much even mention 'Metal' they throw their arms in the air and go 'Uck, why do you listen to that screamo sh*t!?!'

Hell, I could say AC/DC and probably get the same response. confused.gif

Most of the Punk rock I listen to make my friends cringe, unless its "I love livin' in the city" by FEAR. Other than that pretty much on the same level except for my friend Jonathan who listens to annoying sh*t like Rise Against, Breaking Benjamin and a bunch of weird gay sounding JPOP sh*t.

Absolutely everything I listen to. But to be fair, I listen to some pretty weird/strange sh*t.

80's pop and electronic music at that time. I noticed that most people of this generation hate it. My best friend likes it, but my classmates hate anything that is old lol. My classmates hate anything that is good too and they like anything that is crap(commercial music).

Whenever I listen to the original versions of Out of Touch or Forever Young people say
'Why you listening to that sh*t?'

Then 10 minutes later they start listening to Justin Beiber or Rihana or sh*t like that.

What is the world coming to?

It wouldn't be called mainstream if the majority of people didn't listen to it. I mean without them you'd have nobody to point to and say "Look at that commercial bastard, I'M HARDCORE". I hate being that guy but it is how it is.

God damn it. I was really looking forward to that album. I can take K'Naan and Joss Stone, but Lil Wayne is where I draw the line. Oh well, I'll just listen to the songs on the album that doesn't feature him. Maybe if the song with him on it is good I'll enjoy it.
