We always talk about which genre has the worst fans.
But what genre has the best fans?
My vote goes towards Ambient.
All genres of music have their shit fans, all genres of music have their good fans.
I'd throw my vote in for industrial (not counting like Marylin Manson shit ofc)
I've never really gotten into ambient, so I've always been confused by what backpack ambient meant, I know what backpacker hip hop is, but I don't get what it means here.
My experience with harsh noise fans are
>P4K drones who pretend to like Merzbow too much
>Neo-nazis who drifted a little too far from power electronics
99% of them are really interesting to talk to cool guys
my favorite genre of music, and eno is my GOAT artist. :-)
This picture cracks me up, BUT...
the artists listed as 'real man's ambient' (lmao) are legit way better. no idea what the hell is meant by 'backpambient', but I will say this much- people i know in real life who dig music and are peripherally interested in ambient tend to avoid roach, TG, pinhas etc. even when i recc it to them because its not really fashionable to like. you get what i mean? it's too old plus it's associated with prog or new age. maybe certain fans of the genre just get upset that newer, more derivative artists with a trendier aesthetic get more praise while the cream of the crop is comparatively unknown...
either way, i would be shocked if anyone on the board has ever actually met someone in real life that resembles this comic.
