What do you tell Normies/Chads/Stacys you listen to?

What do you actually listen to?

Me:

>Normies/Chads/Stacys?
"M-mostly punk, indie, and rap but honestly I listen to everything"

>Actually
Pop punk, post hardcore, emo, hip hop, indie pop, indie rock, electropop, indietronica
>>
>"iggy pop"
>>
>>61901088

"Heavy metal"

If they don't like it, they can fuck off.
>>
just say a bit of everything

your taste is "normie"-core anyway i dont know what the fuck youre hiding it for

It's pretty normie-core by /mu/'s standards but most people I know irl still like Coldplay and Maroon 4

Why do you think I don't say shit like this irl?

>>61901088
>normie
I like how on /mu/ it means "people who don't spent hours everyday looking for obscure music"

But on /fa/ it means "wears mall tier clothing and no designer shoes "

But on /g/ it means you're a slave to the botnet and using a windows machine or "overpriced hipster macbook"

Or on /sci/ it's anyone who can't d a triple integral

I usually tell them I tend to stick to top 40 and generally don't enjoy listening to music in my spare time.

>>61901234
>insecure and delusional

describes me perfectly senpai ;^)
>>
>>61901088
I try to interpret whatever the person likes and say what I think they want to hear, that way it's easier to become better acquaintance and have something to talk about.
>>
>>61901088
I tell them tokyo shoegazer is my favorite band.

So what?

>>61901272
What if they ask you first
>>
>>61901304
Shut the hell up
>>
>Normies/Chads/Stacys
prog rock, black metal, shoegaze

>Actually
prog rock, black metal, shoegaze

it's not that hard, just don't be a fag about it
>>
>>61901393
>Interpret
It's a judgement call. I'm usually pretty good with being able to tell what people like and their upbringings. Works I'd say 7/10 times for the usual "normies"
>>
>"rap"

>actual
emo, trap music, cloud rap, hardcore punk, and various forms of electronic.

also realize that most people ask this question to talk about themselves and to see if you have common tastes, generally they don't care what you answer if it's different from their taste.

>>61902263
>Imagine if I actually said I listen to emo IRL though
idk man, i find that most people don't give a shit about what you say so long as you own it, if you hold your ground people wont give you shit for it imo.
>>
I say something like , "oh, a little bit of everything."

Hides my power level and generally ends the conversation.

Why not just tell people what you listen to? Most of the people who have no idea what I'm talking about end up checking it out and I get some funny reactions. My said Loveless sounded like, "Poorly mixed songs from the 90s played on really shitty speakers."

>one of the most mainstream genres
its popularity has nothing to do with the fact that when someone hears 'emo' they think cringeworthy hot topic bands
>>
>>61902546
Yeah it's not about appearing mainstream.

When people think "emo" they think terrible metalcore and MCR. Now, to be fair, I love MCR, but I hate being associated with the 2000s "emo" scene
>>
>>61901233
dubs speak truths
>>
>>61902566
It sucks, especially because the scene is mostly watered-down post-hardcore, metalcore, and pop punk
>>
>>61903017
Yeah the scene was more of an altrock offshoot than emo. I blame Taking Back Sunday for the crossover. They're one of my favourite bands ever but god damn they had some terrible fucking fans.

desu "normies" most of the time will either be interested in you or not if you just be honest with them and non condensending towards them. You have niche interests, that's fine let the other person learn about you and learn about the other person, that's what conversations are about.
>>
Just a question, I usually visit /mu/ whenever a singer or someone dies, last time I was here was when Wayne Static died just to feel the vibe and see how people reacted.

But I want to ask if /mu/ like or hates people that like Post Hardcore or mathrock music?
I listen to things like Polyphia, Periphery, Dance Gavin Dance, A Day To Remember, Chon, Atreyu, August Burns Red, Brand New, Boys Night Out, Circa Survive, Coheed And Cambria, Senses Fail, Silverstein, The Used, The Amity Affliction and lot's of bands like that.

What is the consensus of /mu/ and those genres and bands? Are they talked about? Are they hated and regarded as shit posters?
I've always wanted to know what is universally loved here. Sorry if I have shit taste in advance to some people.

Rap, the fags wouldn't understand the different genres of edm or any of the other shit I like. Good luck having a decent conversation about rap with anyone who isn't on mu. Fags don't even know the distinctions between Memphis, trap, drill, west coast, etc all that shit. They look at you like you have three heads.

They'll hate you.

I like some of those same bands but by and large /mu/ doesn't like this shit.

Shout out to Boys Night Out tho mad underrated G T A B O Y S
>>
>>61903196
Not going to lie, it is a pretty good place for devolping deeper tastes in things
>>
>Normies/Chads/Stacys?
"Experimental music, indie, electronic, japanese music, 80's pop, futurefunk"

>Actually
Vaporwave, drone, bubblegum bass, pc music, futurefunk, 80's/90's pop, intros from animus, dubstep, trance, house, synthwave, swing.
>>
>>61903238
Damn, that's unfortunate to hear, I've always wanted to talk about some music like that but I knew my taste would be disregarded and hated.

Thanks again though, I really appreciate it, I guess I'll continue avoiding /mu/ like I have been since 2009.

Also good taste bro
>>
>>61903338
Meh, doesn't stop me from shitposting

Are you on RYM? I think we'd get along
>>
>>61903338
don't think like this anon, /mu/ is a community run place, if you want content, make it. start a /screamo/ general, attract anons with similar taste, and ignore shitposters

I find your music unlistenable, but I always want to see more variety that the "can anyone recommend me bands like mbv" threads
>>
>>61903157
Just speaking for myself but i like Chon and Brand New, i dislike Periphery and Coheed And Cambria.

also, you might like Plini and Vola if you have not heard of them, Plini is a lot like Chon and Vola has an interesting mix of genres.

Screamo, noise, industrial, and black metal mostly.
I don't really interact with any normies on a regular basis desu. I don't talk to anyone outside of 4chan and a small group of IRL friends anyway.

Meh I don't even give a shit anymore. I just tell them the truth "I only listen to improvised music" then I explain it to them and they're like oh cool.

be yourself.

I just answer I listen to both kinds of music. ---------
County AND western!

>>
>a bit of everything

>neofolk, dark ambient, traditional folk, chamber folk, gregorian chant, anything to do with early church music
>>
Honestly I always avoid it by literally spouting /mu/ memes. I usually start with "field recordings of owls", then from there it's post-avant jazzcore or harsh noise (which I actually listen to rarely so I guess it's not all memes)
>>
I usually just say "classic rock and indie folk".

To them, it's Jimi Hendrix and Mumford and Sons. To me, it's Warren Zevvon and Phil Everum.

Grunge. Sometimes Iron maiden or led zeppelin.

desu senpai as long as you deliver with confidence and a bit of pretentiousness
they probably will be interested in whatever band you say
like i told some girl i liked pc-music and added some commentary about it being post-pop music / post-internet and she was unexpectedly interested
works especially well if the girl is a bit artsy and thus would wants your approval
chads will probably casually switch topics b/c they don't give a shit about what you like
>>
I tell them punk rock and indie rock. It's pretty accurate, if not exhaustive.
