I was listening to so music until I discovered this conversation on youtube.



I've seen this plenty of times on almost every music video I have watched, so it's really no surprise to me, especially since I listen to death metal and djent so I get it all the time, but it still is absolutely hilarious. People are uneducated just because they don't like their genre of music, are you serious? Seeing people taking music this seriously makes me lose brain cells lmfao.

I guess these people consider it a "real fan" or "real dedication" to their genre, but really they're just shaming it. It's just disgusting to be honest, seeing people like this over a preference.

it isn't okay just to lump in a whole group of people just because some don't appreciate your taste in music. The only time I actually think people are stupid for not liking any particular kind of music is when their reasons for not liking them are stupid. If you can't articulate your feelings enough to explain why you can't get into a particular group, then I think that counts against you. But saying that people are stupid for not agreeing with a viewpoint is retarded. I can even get that way sometimes but people have their own tastes and it is fine if that taste works for them and not for yourself. As long as people remain open minded and explore different genres then I have no problem with people have eclectic tastes. As long as people can have educated discussions on the matter, then everything is alright. And the idea that all Americans have crappy music tastes are retarded since we have plenty of great American bands and diverse amounts of people from various cultures. Making generalizations about everybody is retarded.

People that get butthurt about what other people like to listen to are sadly very common. Especially within metal and its various subgroups. Now I'm just gonna throw it out there that Sabaton and Nightwish are awesome and I quite enjoy power metal and its ilk. I'm going to make some big assumptions here but This sounds like a a group of people who love power metal (specifically European) and are whining about others who don't like it. Power metal gets a Lot of flack from fans of other metal genres for being too high pitched and whatnot, so i think they're just trying to put down everyone else, so that they feel some sort of foolish pride. When you're passionate about your music and want others to enjoy it, you proceed share it and end up getting negative feedback. That happens a lot when you like metal. Then their feeling get hurt because someone said, "That sounds like a bunch of noise!" Next comes the lashing out at everyone else's music because they don't know how to accept others opinions without weeping. i get these responses all the time too, but just because someone else is small minded and puts others down for their own tiny ego boost, doesn't mean that you have to! Just keep on being an awesome person and ignore these foolish peasants! I'm going to enjoy some Ensiferum now, may the odds be forever in your favor.

You can never take music too seriously, but when you start comparing music (artists, bands, genres, labels, your own collections, etc.), that, is when you lose the balance and focus to truly enjoy one of the man's greatest gifts.

Lumping an entire continents intellect on whatever mainstream music is popular at the moment only shows their own insecurities when it comes to musical taste. They pathetically retort to name calling with "they must be stupid if they can't appreciate my favorite obscure shit band. Why does no one else like my plebian tastes!?"

Ignore people who do this. They're just salty that no one else cares about some irrelevant band they deem the pinnacle of musical excellence.

I don't listen to metal but I have friends who do so I'll chime in. You shouldn't get mad at others for not liking what you like, I'm not gonna get mad at someone for not liking Funk music because everyone's taste is not the same and it should stay that way or else the world would be boring. The only time I'll get mad is if someone approaches me the wrong way about what I like other than that, I'm very reasonable and understanding but most of all music is meant to be enjoyed and shared not competitive and compared.
