People who don't listen to classic music are simple. People who don't listen to rock are idiots. People who don't listen to dubstep are boring. People who don't listen to reggae are uptight. People who don't listen to rap are racist.
This is what I hear from a lot of music enthusiasts. Especially rock enthusiasts - Typically adults who are "ashamed" of the younger generations.
Chill out, alright. It's music; Like with food, we all have different tastes. I'm sorry I don't know who prince is. I'm sorry I don't know any reggae artists other than Bob Marley. I'm sorry my music taste doesn't fit yours. If it's any consolation, I do enjoy a variety of music genres, including yours, but I guess making your personal favourite genre my favourite genre is not high on my list of priorities.
- I don't know what you are talking about. Everyone I have met with a differing music taste has been courteous and respectful towards mine.20%(12)18%(18)Vote15%(6)

Seriously, if you are like this then get over yourself. Nobody cares if you know every single artist of XYZ genre.

My first boyfriend was like that and it was *so* annoying. So what if I like pop? Everyone does - major chord progressions light up the brain, in basically every test subject studied, regardless of whether they reported to have liked it or not.
Everybody chill out. Let people enjoy things. There's so little that's nice in the world, that we shouldn't be destroying that for people.2

I never really got into the whole your this kind of person because you listen to this kind of music deal. I find it kind of stupid to be honest with you. I mean I'm not going to your kind of music if I find it revolting, weird or I just flat out don't like it and I don't expect you to listen to my music either.
As long as your respect what I listen to and don't make a big deal about it, I won't say anything about your tastes either. But there are times when I can't bite my tongue when it comes to some music and some of it seriously sends a bad message to kids, that kind of stuff, I can't bite my tongue about but when it comes to most kinds of music I can hold it.1
