Well I got to be the biggest victim of this thread. Every time I place a youtube music video in a typical "what the flying f**k are you listening to" thread, the thread sinks to the second page and beyond. I only know one guy in the whole world who shares my music taste slightly.

I can't remember what you like, Uprising, only that it's somewhere in the 'metal' area...

The 'metal' area, the 'drum & bass' area, the 'techno' area, the 'psy' area, the 'gabber' area, the 'dubstep' area,... I think the 'noise' area would be more appropriate to sum it up.

Sorry for the late reply, the answer is no, but I do not mind their stuff.

It's in the good direction.

I meant 'noise' in the way of noisy music aka loud heavy fast distorted but not necessarily the noise genre itself.

I guess I'm raised to listen to heavy music, I grew up with it (rebel factor?) and can't let go of it, unlike my mates and nephews who are all sick of it now and prefer the musically sober life.

Whenever I say I listen to metal, the person will usually ask if I listen to some mainstream metal bands, Metallica, Dream Theater etc. And I will usually say no but sometimes act like I like one to not make them feel bad. It’s not that I have a bias against mainstream metal; it’s just that many of bands I happen to like are very obscure. Sometimes I will even avoid the subject of music in a conversation, just because the chances of finding a common interest with anyone is very slim. If I said I listen to Arcturus, Urizen, Persefone etc., they wouldn’t have any idea of what I am talking about, and assume I am some sort of snob that listens to bands just because they are obscure.

Then there is the worst scenario where they are someone who stereotypes metal music; thinks its trashy bar music, smashing instruments together, or "just screaming". Then you have to awkwardly lecture them about the genre. :roll:

Does anyone else have to avoid music conversations with people? :?

Yes. Can't really say to other people ''I'm so into stoner doom/old school death/funeral doom/black metal/ classical music mainly from the time of Rachmaninov to Pärt''. Well, of course I can, but if I'm planning to work with them on some project I'd rather keep things as neutral as possible.

Quite a bit of my music is rather obscure as well, but I don't think it has anything to do with snobism. A lot of music produced for the mainstream market just isn't appealing.

Doom metal, even though I can say "stuff like Black Sabbath", most people have no clue what it is. Heavy metal, while there are mainstream bands here, and i like a lot of them. I usually listen to the "epic" style of this genre like Manilla Road, Brocas Helm, and Cirith Ungol, which never really reached any sort of popularity.

From the epic genre and the stuff I know of it I can only enjoy the work of Dark Forest, which is partially to be defined as epic, if I'm not mistaken.

Haven't heard of Dark Forest. Here's an example of what epic metal I listen to:

I think it's best to like a mixture of mainstream and underground bands, but not let other coerce you into liking said mainstream bands. My social links are bands like metallica (Black album/Load/Reload), Linkin Park, All That Remains and Machine Head.

Anyone else have bands that double as social links?

Many mainstream bands are trash of course, but some good bands get attention they deserve, like Rise Against.

Yeah, I have more Manic Street Preachers fans connections than connections from any other group of people. A lot of times I don't even remember that's how I know all those people. :lol:

Half of the time my taste in music isolates me, and other times it doen't. Most of the time I listen to mainstream music, but mostly hip hop, R&B, and rap. But at the same time I can't help but listen to the Jonas Brothers (yeah I'm still a little 10-year-old at heart), *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block, TLC, Foreigner, Metallica, Nickelback, No Doubt, Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, 3 Doors Down, Godsmack, Panic! At The Disco, Puddle oF Mudd, Play, Selena Gomez, Marc Anthony, Disturbed, Blink 182, Hollywood Undead, Daddy Yankee, Colbie Caillat, Big Time Rush, and Lonely Island. Now that I think about it, I think I like more non-mainstream music than actual mainstream music haaha :lol:

Maybe mine does to an extent but at the same time, I don't really care.

Most of the time when I say Joy Division people are like "who is that". :( Perhaps I would have better luck in Britain.
