It depends on what I'm listening to and who it is. With my chill out music most are like Ooo what's this I like it. With Japanese music it varies. So.e are like hey alright, some are like the hell is this crap.

More like the people who listen to the music i play at work are culturally deprived. Everyone today wants to listen to the latest rap and hip hop music, assuming it's even hip hop or rap, i will never understand how people can listen to that garbage today. I like to listen to the classics and underground hip hop. All my co-workers don't like it. I'm not sure how the hell they can't like what started the bullshit they listen to today. I can already imagine what they will say if i play J-Rock, J-Pop and DJ USAO. Never again will i share my interest in music with anyone ever again.

I've fortunately had people in my life who respected me enough to not say anything bad about the music I listen to, even if they think it's weird or etc. That said though, I haven't met anyone personally in my life (met a bunch on CR though) who listens to the same things I do - instrumental, classical, etc.

I've seen disrespectful criticism back home in Alabama against people who listened to things like K-POP, J-POP, and etc. however.

My male friends can sometimes make fun of me for listening to k-pop.
It's not so much about the music but more about their outfits or style. They don't understand the whole skinny jeans thing, make-up and their hairstyles. And sometimes it's about the Korean and English. Which makes no sense since they listen to music in Japanese (anime openings+endings). It's not that different or any more wierd -.-

A lot however I think its mostly in good fun since most of my friends trade jabs with each other about what we each listen to. I do try and avoid playing music that I know my friends won't like however I believe I do so merely out of common curtsey since a good percentage of the music I enjoy is extreme by their standards.

Not generally, but they do disapprove of one particular type of music I enjoy- the upbeat and not disturbing Vocaloid songs. Now, most people around me either know nothing about J-culture or have a horrible misconception about it. Of course I'm going to be made fun of for that...

ALWAYS!!

I am a huge heavy metal fan but no one around here likes it. It's gotten to the point where when asked what I like for music I just say "I like the heavy stuff" and then avoid the subject all together.

I just get tired of hearing "I don't understand what they are saying" "You can't sing along" "How can you stand someone yelling all the time" Whatever, I like it... that's all that matters to me.

Not necessarily all the time. Just when i listen to something that isn't mainstream where I live like J-Rock, Psychobily, Crust punk, Rockabilly, 80's Hardcore, Thrash, Hardcore. "I Can't understand it" "Is that Even Music?" "Why do they scream so much?"

Or if i do listen to Something mainstream I get it form the other end. "That's Gay why are you listening to that." "Oh that's that one horrible song they keep playing on the radio " "Wow dude you are so gay for listening to that"

One way or the other people are going to make fun of something they don't understand or disagree with. Truthfully I too have made fun of some people for listening to a certain thing. Doesn't make it right though. In the end all I've tried to do is just not care what other people would think.

Definitely not. Music is music and if they like it, so be it. I am not them and they are not me. I have no reason to judge them because of what they like to listen to. My entire family enjoys music completely opposite from my taste. I do not hate genres, but I can say I dislike some of them.

Some people do. I guess that can't be avoided especially when the songs you play have lyrics which are strange to their ears. But I don't really care. They can make fun of me as much as they want, I'll still listen to the music I like anyway. They can't do anything about that.

No.
Nobody makes fun of the things that I enjoy.

*sighs* Yup. I listen to metal and heavy metal and people always insult it. It just pisses me off because a majority of people who bash on metal music and call it scream haven't even heard it before. Death metal isn't just senseless yelling. There are instruments, choruses, lyrics, melodies, and catchy parts. I don't enjoy hearing people yell, there's a difference. I mostly listen to punk and rock but the few metal bands I listen to is all that people concentrate on.

I have people ask why I listen to "all that old outdated music" and I usually just look at them like they're an idiot and go back to listening to my Rollings Stones and Rush and Queen and all those guys. I don't care what people like to listen to, that's their personal preference, but if you start talking bad about other's preferences I start to get a bit pissed.
