"You listen to THEM?"

Oh these guys. I've heard this song before. They were in the Creed/Lifehouse pile all along!

Well, getting angry is silly but it will definitely change my opinion of a person if they tell me they listen to (here are some non-Christian examples) Nickelback or Tool or Boards of Canada or Gwen Stefani's solo projects or whatever it is they're into. Not always for the worse, I've often found common ground with people over our musical tastes. Man, if someone likes one of my favourite bands it's INSTANT friend credit!

It's definitely one area where I have a lot of trouble lying to be polite. Music is so emotional that if someone tells me they listen to, say, Linkin Park, I might not say anything but it's really hard to keep the disgusted expression off my face. (Linkin Park is not terrible exactly, but if it's one of the bands you mention when talking about music you like, that is terribly sad.)

I mentioned them?

I hate Linkin Park! LOL I can't stand them. They're on par with NickelBack, Tool, Creed, disturbed, and those idiots who sing that song about cheating on your girlfriend.

I agree with where you're coming from though, there is instant win-power with those who share the same tastes. And when they like somebody who you consider to be notoriously talentless or just horrible (Linkin park, 50 Cent, etc... in my opinion) you sort of want to drive a hammer through your ear whenever it comes up on their iPod at work/in their car/wherever, and you slowly lose respect.

Strange how that works.... Incredibly judgmental race, we are.
