    I got into metal with Metallica, Maiden and Sabbath, then Dream Theatre, then Yngwie Malmsteem, then pretty much everything else. Now all my friends pretty much just listen to metal and are disgusted that I have a "Fleetwood Mac" folder on my phone

    Music elitists are the worst and are also probably the worst thing to ever happen to music.

    There will always be hatred for music one way or another. Always, no way around it.

    The same thing happened to me with heavy metal. I used to wear all black and nothing but metal shirts, I had really long hair... But, it was almost like I woke up one day not liking it anymore. It almost got old to me. Kind of like if you eat the same thing for lunch everyday, the taste just gets bland and you think "I want something different today". Now, that's not to say I don't enjoy the occasional blasting of Metallica's "Whiplash" or "Phantom Lord", but that very rarely happens anymore, as opposed to when I used to listen to the album Kill 'Em All at least twice a day.

    When The Mighty Rio Grande was used in Moneyball I was like "Holy shit, I've been listening to TWDY forever! So awesome to hear them in this movie." Everyone else was acting like someone shit in their cereal. "WHYYYYYYYYYYY I WAS LISTENING TO THIS BEFORE IT WAS COOL"

    Hipsters in the technical sense don't even exist anymore (someone who dislikes something solely due to its popularity), I'm not sure what you're complaining about. I mean, the associated culture still exists but I don't see why there'd be an issue having a musical conversation with one.

    Even if you know someone who genuinely dislikes something sheerly out of its popularity, then that's simply musical elitism as well.

    And each comes with their own kind of annoying. I think it's the pretentiousness of hipsters that gets to me, similar to progressive elitists.

    If we're going to debate aesthetics then for me it's those stupid fucking glasses. Hideously thick-rimmed, and more recently, not even functional. Just a fugly accessory to go with an already bad wardrobe.

    I don't see what that has to do with music, though. I think you're in the wrong for assuming just because someone meets a certain stereotype at first glance that they're immediately going to be annoying and elitist. I know numerous people who would probably count as hipsters and if anything I find musical discussions with them more rewarding than otherwise.

    I generally wait for the pretentious comments before I make that judgement.
    I do, admittedly, find the wardrobe extremely annoying though. Something about it just irks me.

    And that's entirely down to opinion. I happen to wear glasses that fit that description... and they are functional, am I immediately invalidated as a person? This isn't even a musical discussion.

    No it's not, and no that doesn't invalidate you as a person. But I do also know people that literally got fake, gigantic-rimmed glasses for no real reason.

    And in any case, back to music...the one genre I really just stopped listening to was any form of death metal. Sure, I enjoy the occasional relapse into Opeth or Wintersun for a while, but I just don't like most of it anymore.

    At least hipsters tend to be musically open-minded. Metal elitists outright refuse and even joke about anything that isn't metal.

    Really the only genres I'm not fond of are hip-hop, rnb, funk, and disco. Just never liked the way they sound.

    I was making a joke, but it's really not funny for anyone but me because I live in Colorado and perpetually wear a hoodie over a t-shirt and hear people complain how cold it is all the time here. :/

    E: But thick, useless glasses are totally stupid, yeah.

    metal elitists are usually hilarious because in my experience, they're the ones with the most conservative and "safe" tastes in metal (I can only presume because they've got really rigid (and retarded) ideas of what is "true" metal)

    Oh, and as it happens, I don't like Fleetwood Mac lol. Don't exactly hate them but I'd probably change station if one of their songs came on the radio.

    People who listen to the -core metals have a more open minded taste than metal elitists, which is hilarious since metal elitists hate the people who listen to those genres.

    I'm gonna take a wild guess and say Franke_R is someone who listens to the -core metals.

    Myself, I don't actively listen to them, but there are some (some) -core bands I can tolerate. Overall I don't really care for it, since metalcore seems to have a tendency of using mediocre harsh vocals, and the song structures and compositions tend to be really formulaic and not that ambitious (that is to say they "play it safe" by "using the generic metalcore formula.")

    With that being said, there are the occasional metalcore bands or songs I can appreciate, though I think this is mostly born from the fact that modern bands really blur the line between what is considered metalcore and what is considered melodic metal. Most the metalcore bands I do tolerate tend to be referred interchangeably between the two genres.

    Grew out of Lil Wayne and any new main-streamer rappers that like rapping about their money, cars, and mansions+hoes. Never looked back and loving the sound of Tupac, Biggie, Nas, Hopsin, Easy E, rappers that actually flow.

    The very first song I had ever actually liked was "Breathe" by Prodigy (That was when I was 11. Seriously - before then I didn't even like music.), followed by Buckethead's "Jordan." Then I was like "FUCK THAT" and started listening to trance, then hardstyle, then nightcore. Now I've kind of backed up and I'm into anything that serves a good beat or catchy lyrics    except dubstep.

    I don't get why a ton of folk draw the line at dubstep, there's a ton of good dubstep out there, whether it's old school dubstep like Mungo's HiFi or the modern stuff like Koan Sound or Love & Lights :frown:

    tbh most people probably avoid dubstep because they think of obnoxious kiddies on the internet who always go on about how they listen to skrillex and that mouse guy rather than, y'know, actual dubstep.

    Really I guess it suffers in the same way as metal - because people often think of metal as obnoxious kiddies who go on about slipknot and trivium or whatever. Either way, by judging two whole genres on their most obnoxious fans you miss out on a huge amount of music.
