I’m a music snob. Like, a really big music snob.
I know I’m a bad person, but whenever someone says they love One Direction, Katy Perry or Rihanna etc, I’m going to assume that they don’t have a range in musical interest and I will judge them.
One of the reasons I think is because, for example Directioners, they claim that 1D have the best everything; songs, lyrics, music videos and overall the greatest artist ever. And as you guessed, it pisses me off a lot. Shit like that comes across as really ignorant as they don’t take any other artist in to account.
It isn’t just pop as well. Those who like only heavy metal or only pop-punk anger me as well. They think just because their favourite band plays their own instrument that they’re music gods, and all artists who don’t play instruments are inferior. No your fave band is probably shit.
Guns n’ Roses? Shit.
All Time Low? Shit.
Bring Me the Horizon? Shit.
This is where my music snobbery level goes even higher, I think I have one of the best music tastes ever, because I have a really wide variety in music taste. I listen to at least a couple of artists a genre, and I think I’m such a pro critique (My favourites include Kanye, Radiohead, Bjork, Nirvana so yeah, some call me a hipster douche).
I get the whole “respect peoples’ opinions” and “people can listen to whatever they want” but I seriously can’t come to terms with that. I feel like it’s my duty to save people who listen to boy-bands, pop princesses and other mainstream products of music. I will comment on a YouTube video by The Vamps or 1D or 5SOS and express my criticism for them groups.
In conclusion, I think everyone who listens to just one artist or just mainstream music, are ignorant and should listen to other genres. I know I’m wrong, but I don’t give a shit, I’m still gonna judge you on your music taste.
Yup. Contradiction, much? This post itself doesn’t even make any sense. Claiming to listen to Bjork, Kanye West, and Radiohead is not even hipster. You would know they listen to really underground/indie music for one; And two, Radiohead is extremley over rated. If you want to be hipster, listen to stuff by Vivaldi, Chopin, Offenbach, or Poulenc, and various suites by other composers. You probably don’t even know who these people are, even so how about you shut the fuck up, and go back to your so called playlist.
