Stereotypical Fans.
Posted 5/28/10
Sooo ... we all know that most girls drool over boy bands, who sing pop songs about love ... fragile love.

Nothing wrong with that? Right. So then, how about those people who think they listen to "real" music?

For example, I was cruising a thread not long ago, and I came across one post that said "Boybands suck. Go listen to some metal".

Now, I've seen a lot of posts similar to this one; it's just this one stood out more to me. Now, these people who think metal/deathcore/gorecore/etc. is "real" music and boybands suck and are nothing but manufactured plastics, all happen to be guys. Yep. Boys who think metal is the way to go.

So, based off this, it has come to my conclusion that; most females tend to listen to boybands, male/female solo singers. Many males tend to listen to metal, rock, deathcore, and other genres similar to that. Hence the title "Stereotypical fans."

......................................


I wanted to know you guys' opinions on this. Did you guys notice the same thing? Is it safe to generalize all females listen to boybands and all males listen to rock?

Stereotyping is the worst thing since marmalade.
Everyone has different tastes, just because the noticeable fans of boybands are girls. doesn't mean that all girls only fan boybands.

I love my rock, metal, alternative etc etc.
And I hate romance, RnB, love songs.
And yet I listen to boybands on the side anyway.

"Boys who think metal is the way to go."
I think it's got to do with "man pride" you know?
"MY ____ IS MORE MANLIER THAN YOURS!"
^Maybe something like that goes through their brain every time they see someone.

No. It's wrong to stereotype people in real life based off of Crunchyroll.

And yes, every damn girl is going to love Boy Bands on CR, and you'll hear them talk about how sexy they find X member or how they find Y member ugly compared to X member. They also have a huge love for Visual-kei if they ever dare venture outside of the world of Boy Bands/Girl Bands.

Crunchyroll is a community of horny fangirls. Seriously, the whole damn place has been taken over by them, and that's all you'll ever see. They mainly are girls, but that doesn't mean they at all represent the majority of women.

I don't really like metal at all...too loud for me. I prefer solo male/female singers and bands like ikimonogakari. So I guess I don't fit into the typical stereotype. Most of my friends though tend to like rock and rap...I absolutely hate rap, but I don't mind some rock

I love every type of music. It's hard to find anyone on CR like that. It's just a bunch of spazzing fangirl and boy on this site and allkpop.

Girls can't resist good looking guys. [Unless their sexuality is either homo or bi, but that's a different story xD]
Honestly, I love all music except country.
Metal, Hardcore, Screamo, Rock, I can take all that. I probably won't be into but I can handle.
R&B is practically my mainstream, but it has to be a certain R&B like Alicia Keys.
Boybands: They can actually be pretty good if they have the right song. Super Junior, for example, had "It's You" and they pulled it off for me (teehee, that's what she said....sorry)

But really, guys ACTUALLY like Boy Bands xD (A small portion I should say)
Like one of my guy friends like Super Junior while the other likes Big Bang.
None of them like 2PM though. Why? Because 2PM is always shirtless meaning they don't wanna ... yep.

Not really, I'm a girl and I HATE those manufactured pop bands (and yes i do think they're fake, sso dont get me started on that :p)

And no it's not safe to generalize that, because most girls I know don't listen to boybands while most guys I know dont listen to metal

I agree with this person.

I listen to a wide array of music including Jazz, Techno, Blues, Acoustic, and Melodic Instrumentals aside from Rock or Metal. I know a bunch of females that listen to metal and rock.

I love all music...

But I HATE when a band is famous, or a band markets purely on their own appearance.

I am a metal lover, through and through. As well as a rap lover, and a techno lover, and a classical lover etc... etc..

But I refuse to listen to Boybands because all they market is appearance, not music. Justin Bieber is another example, the only reason he is famous is because he gets little girls drooling over him, not because of the music.

Yes they are talented, I won't lie, Bieber can sing... but it isn't his singing alone that has got him so big, and he knows that, and he plays on it. Then music is gone, people don't go to his concerts to listen to the music, rather they go to drool over him.

And the metal scene isn't free of awful things like this, Bring me the Horizon for example, oh my god. I went to see these live, now for those who don't know, these are big on the screaming harsh vocal work. And they scream, they trash, they jump around. And I do enjoy their music. But I noticed in the corner a few little emo girls, with their fingers in their ears shouting "we love you Oli Sykes"... I could've punched them right there and then :):)

Well I like boy bands but I also really like metal, rap and r&b. And I don't fangirl that much to be honest. And I don't really focus on looks, yeah the looks get me to notice them but it's the music that I like. Everyone has their opinion about fan girls but not all fan girls are crazy (korean fan girls are on another level though...)

I smell an inaccurate generalization here.
