Yeah she's a bitch. I don't talk to her much anymore
Learned my lesson, I avoid the topic of music entirely and I don't recommend anything. This has happened way too many times
looked up this song, expecting some really meme shit but I really enjoy this song anon
I'm no friend of yours, but thanks for showing me. I'll have to click around his other songs
I was at a party once and put on a playlist. Born Under Punches by Talking Heads came on and somebody said "Why is the laptop playing two songs at once?"
Not my finest hour. The rest of it went down really well but that one makes me laugh and hurts all at the same time.

>She tells me everything I recommended was shit

I knew she wouldn't like it, it's just funny to give it to someone who says they're into experimental. I guess the story doesn't belong in the thread because I don't particularly enjoy it either

Everytime I see this album posted on /mu/, I remember that.
Most of my friends have great taste in music, and we can even zone out and listen to heavy 40 minute concept albums together
The only pleb friend I have is a guy who will not listen to anything that isn't "chill"
I don't have friends so not really.
I'm usually playing something though throughout the day and whenever my sister visits me she always tells me what bad taste in music I have.
Meanwhile she still only listens to gangster rap.
You are very lucky. My friends play the same Kanye, Drake, Future songs and whatever is popular at the time. It drives me crazy because they must play their music out loud wherever they go.
We're in college and one of my friends plays music from his phone - out loud - wherever he walks.
My friend made me feel like a faggot when I was younger for saying I liked the Pixies. This was shortly before I remembered he was the faggot with no taste who listened to nothing besides shitty radio friendly pop punk
Why is this? I've been friends with tons of guys and tons of girls and always, ALWAYS the girls have absolute shit taste
Recently this girl I've been getting close to said she was into heavy metal, so I asked what bands she liked and she said "Oh, I only listen to Bring Me the Horizon"
>"hey anon what are you listening to"
>"just music, its nothing"
>show phone screen
>"haha who the fuck is earl sweatshirt hahaha"
i feel bad for not listening to drake or future like my normie friends.
The guys at my work are like that
Every day when we're closing up shop they put on Drake radio on Pandora and I have to listen to the same shitty songs over and over. I put on Death Grips radio this one day and they said it just sounded like shouting and noise
>have vast taste in music
>friends hear me listen to black metal once
>i am forever labeled a metalhead
>qt asks me what I'm listening too
>tell her it's some experimental garbage
>"Play it for me"
>play her the song
>it's Earthmover by Have A Nice Life
>noisy part kicks in
>"Lol wtf this sounds like someone screaming and washing their feet"
>don't talk to anyone for the rest of the day
>spend all night listening to gloomcore and crying
Any chance that I had of liking those artists was completely ruined by the fact that I hear the same singles over and over.
I played Ghostface Killah for my friend and he told me "he sounds too much like Action Bronson"
I try to be accepting of other people's music tastes but BMTH is just bad. Like, objectively bad. Their songs are not composed well and they don't do anything original, it literally pains me to listen to them
Yeah, he plays it for me all the time because he thinks it's original and he really wants me to like them. After the fifth time of "Dude, come listen to this," I had to get the message through and I laughed at him and told him it was garbage. Felt bad but he hasn't tried again
oh man, the amount of times i've heard
>metal is just noise
>"METAL IS FOR TEENAGERS WHO WANT TO BE LOUD AND DISRUPTIVE!!!!!!!!"
I feel like most art forms have objectively better stuff (example mu shit compared to radio indie bull shit). But most girls tend to be easily influenced by trends and don't explore anything out of the most normal stuff you can find.
Here in my country, people are so fucking dumb that they think that Rock and Metal are all the same thing. Kek.
>It's all the same thing anon
>Why do you think so?
>They all have guitars, it's all the same
>at a bonfire
>girl gets out boombox and the group tells me to play something
>play Sound and Vision
>slowly everyone stops talking and just stares at the boombox
>"Who is this anon?"
>They turn it down so it's barely audible
>mfw I blew it in front of my crush
I wonder how bad her taste of music is that she doesn't like that song. It might not be your taste but how can you actually say that is a "shit" song? It's not like you put on a fucking drake or some shit. Oh wait she probably likes drake right?
And the most ironic part is that if you ask them what they like to listen, they'll say something like:
>"uuur I like to listen to all kinds of music, I'm pretty ecletic"
They think that listening to Top 40 pop and some known Indie stuff makes them ecletic. Fucking retards.
>It's your turn to play music
>You have picked out the best possible song in your head, everyone's gonna love it
>As soon as you hit play the conversation in the group gets heated or they decide to go somewhere and no one is listening
>"Hey anon can you turn that off?"
It's bad enough that she played the same four Cage the Elephant singles for over an hour. She's a pseudo-patrician, she thinks genres like hip-hop and metal are shit because it's "not real music" and prefers extremely popular, unoriginal indie bands
I dated a girl who was into heavy death metal while I was in my psych rock phase. We both didn't enjoy each other's tastes but eventually found middle ground. We broke up a couple years later, but music had nothing to do with it.
I think you'll be okay. And you have good taste by the way
>Amazing song has a weird experimental part where it gets really loud and chaotic and it rubs all your friends the wrong way
If you get your friends high before you play something experimental they'll be more open to it. I got my friend to enjoy Emergency and I because I played it for her while she was high. Not to say that she appreciated it the way I do, but she enjoyed it, which is a start
When my friend gets high he becomes super controlling of the speaker and doesn't let anybody else play music. His attention span also wanes and he never lets a fucking song finish. I HATE IT
>listening to music in car with my headphones, relatively high volume
>boards of canada - music is math starts playing
>friend asks "whose phone is ringing?" 100% serious
Yeah alot of times people say they like "hipster / indie "music but really they're huge Drake fans undercover, it's really shocking and predictable. You can't play any new music with these types of people.
>meet nice girl who likes tame impala song I play
>sitting in car smoking/chilling with other girls
>can only play the top hits from tame impala, mac demarco, or one pixies song
>play com truise
>car goes quiet
> Requested to play some ambient music
> Putting on Eleh cus why the fuck not
> The room goes "what is this shit?!"
> "It loops, anon" "Change the fucking song"
Com Truise on a panorama view with a car at dusk would make some great memories...
in terms of making memories with songs my entire last summer was set to discipline by club cheval.
Was the last summer with some of my old high school friends before going off to college and we were partying drinking and smoking almost every night, favorite time was staying at a beautiful log cabin overlooking a lake of my friends dad's house.
How about we post some times your friends actually liked your taste?
>driving with my brother at night
>asks him if i could play some of my music
>put on Duster - Stratosphere
>mfw he likes it and he says likes the chill atmosphere
>decide to put on some other slowcore like galaxie 500, which he enjoys as well
It was pretty nice
>Out at a lakefront, getting friend high for the first time
>Put on "I Talk to the Wind" as we lay back in the grass after smoking a bowl
>He absolutely loves it and we end up playing the whole album
>To this day King Crimson is still one of his favorite bands
And another one
>Different friend is visiting from college for a couple days
>Chilling in his room, both tripping on one tab of acid
>Decide to play "Maggot Brain"
>He says its the most beautiful song he's ever heard and it literally makes him cry
>in dorm room with large group of people
>play Mort Garson's Plantasia
>everyone loves it
>one person even says it's some of the best music he's ever heard
>everyone wants me to recommend them more space age pop-type stuff
This would have made for a better thread.
Dont have any specific stories but i've been able to get multiple people into The Microphones, Fishmans, and John Maus.
I'm pretty lucky to have friends that are passionate about music. There're about 4 or 5 of us that will basically listen to anything someone else puts on and be chill with it. The friend im forming a band with have chilled just smoking and listening to harsh noise. Also i know like 7 people who love Death Grips unironically, feels good.
It's so awesome to have friends that are into Death Grips. I have a few that fucking hate them, but when I get the ones who do enjoy them in a room together we blast it loud as fuck and get super pumped up and it's awesome

I've posted a similar story before, but fuck here we go.
I was really, really, fucking really into the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I fucking loved them, first band I properly "got into" as it were. There were plenty of awkward time but this was probably the worst.

Years and fucking years later and I'm still known as "Red Hot Chili Peppers Guy". I can't bring up the band, mention anything related or play a couple of riffs from one of their songs without being ridiculed.
It will never die. Fucking RHCP.
You just zone out to the music. People use it to concentrate on something other than suffering when they work out. It sometimes sucks when you're doing cardio because it could fuck up your pace. Other than that, it's fine.

Anyway, he put Death Grips on his Spotify, so it all worked out ok.
same. its been a week after a 3 year relationship and im basically in hell. i know /mu/ is not the place for feels but i feel like you guys are the only ones who understand
Wait, you've heard of Mos Def before that interaction, right?
I know how you feel. Im 3 months out of a 2 year relationship. Im still massively depressed over it, and I still love her, but I'm starting to move on.
The most important part is that I learned what I want, and what I don't want in a relationship
thats a great way of looking at it. i hear all these stories about people being 2 or 3 months out of a relationship and being depressed...i dont want that. maybe i should get a tinder
I was with a girl for seven years and she left me a few months ago, so I feel you guys. Shit was really fucking rough, all I can say is that you'll get over it with time. I ended up buying a motorcycle as an early-life-crisis-mobile. Totally fucking worth it. Also, here's something I saw posted on /mu/ a few weeks ago that really resonated with me and will hopefully do the same with you:
you too eh
I just keep telling myself that it's the same predictable shit every time. there's literally nothing to do but feel bad until it passes. breakups happen, and happiness happens after the breakup, and it's inevitable. there's no rushing it, there's just a lot of contemplation and brooding and overthinking until suddenly you're okay again.
the best thing you can do is find a friend and vent your heart out. discuss every aspect, discuss what went wrong and how to avoid the things that hurt you with the next person you meet, and what was good about the relationship that made the whole thing worthwhile. relationships are incubators to grow and learn, she affected you in a meaningful way and you have evolved through her, hopefully for the better. she is a brush stroke on the benevolent watercolour that is you. think about her impact, and what you can do to allow that impact to make you a better person.
you will be okay.
damn u guys this is why i love you.
this is the 3 years relationship guy. shitty thing is, me and this girl actually met on /mu/. she was so complicated and interesting, and was a lot like me in so many ways. had similar and even more patrician taste than i did. legitimately thought we were going to be together forever. then we got to college, started living together, and i found out she cheated on me with some stoner. i knew it happened, but she totally lied to me about it to my face. i decided not to tell her i knew, and we broke up. now im stuck in this situation where i have 2 more months till i study abroad, but we're still living together and i have no where else to go. she just sleeps at that stoners place every night. fuck /mu/ hold me
sorry just venting. ignore this shitpost
yep. a week after we broke up she then set her profile picture to her with that guy
keep in mind that me and this girl were CLOSE. our families were very close - i stayed with her family for a while and she stayed in mine. we acted like we were married. and then she does all this shit to me? i think she also has a problem with weed - she never smoked before college, but she started smoking almost every night with this dude she cheated on me with.
everyone i talk to says that i dodged a bullet and that i didnt allow myself to marry this girl or anything. but damn its hard to just say that and get over it after 3 years, yknow? i know its only been a week but like damn
I know how that feels. I met a girl when I was in a mental hospital and we ended up dating for years. I became emotionally dependant on her and out of the blue one day she decided to just break up with me. That same day she changed her relationship status and everything on her social media to be her with some other guy that she obviously met and liked better me.
I was fucked up for a loooong time after that, and she went through guy after guy, 3 of them in just a few months, using people to make her feel better about her own insecurities as a person. And when she gets bored of them she just moves on to the next guy.
Women are evil
jesus thats brutal. how can someone do that.
people like u are the bomb, for real. thanks dude. i know its fucked up but im glad there are people out there who have been in similar situations as me. makes me feel like im not doomed or alone haha (but i kno i rly am :^)
I managed to figure out my friends taste so I spammed like 8 songs that fit perfectly and he liked all of them. Feels good man
I'm a classicfag, just to clarify
>talking with my friend
>he asks me to play a favorite
>not being sure what to play, I put on Rachmaninovs piano concerto no 3

Yeah, I didn't really believe her, but she has a pretty good taste in general, so I gave her the benefit of doubt. She already said that she in love with me. Shame that we live so far from each other right now, though...

Hurt my feelings a bit.
Had a girlfriend and was telling her about kayo dot and was really excited to introduce them to her. We were driving through a beautiful scenic area and the mood and ambiance was perfect and I put on pitcher of summer for her. She hated it and turned it off halfway through and put on some shitty reggae music despite me making it very clear multiple times that I hate reggae. Completely ruined the mood and the trip and we broke up pretty soon after for "unrelated" reasons
If she wouldn't let you share a song that was clearly important to you, she doesn't deserve to be your girlfriend
A good partner would be interested in the kind of music that touches you and makes you happy
>better than disturbed
Literally crying for anon. My gf at least tries to listen to the music I like, she got me Funeral on Vinyl for my birthday but likes the 2 worst songs on it the most by far.
She loves sufjan too, I honestly though all girls liked sufjan, it was even one of my main tips on how to get girls, play songs just like Casimir Puaski Day to them.
>I was at a party
>someone told me to put on music
>I put on music that I like bit obviously isn't right for the setting I'm in
>people *surprisingly* don't like it because I have no idea how to act properly in social situations
>they're all shitty plebs!
Its not hard to play music at a party. I actually have a playlist pre-made on my phone for this exact scenario that consists of some crappy music that everyone likes, some less known stuff but is catchy and people always seem to like it, and a few songs that are a little less accessible to push the boundaries a bit without going too far. It works great every time and I've had numerous people compliment how good the playlist is, and its still a playlist I can listen to on my own
I really don't understand why this is hard for you guys
When I was in high school I was at a friend's house with a few other friends playing GTA V while also playing music on a laptop at the same time. When it was my turn to pick the music, I chose a Beastie Boys (it was either No Sleep Till Brooklyn or Fight for Your Right can't remember). I should clarify that the friends I was with were not that into hip hop/rap. In fact it's probably safe to say that they flat out didn't like the entire genre (to be fair I used to be like that too). Anyways the song plays and they don't like it. One friend in particular didn't like it because the Beastie Boys were saying the name of their band in the song, self-referencing themselves.
Honestly I've never experienced people being this dickish about music. Once at my job I put on a playlist and Melt-Banana and everyone thought it was weird but I just said "cmon you cant not have fun with this music" and people were ok with it. I put on American Football at my job and people liked it, I put on Animal Collective and people thought it was aight. Maybe I'm just lucky
This is basically what I do too.
Although I usually have an album on my ipod somebody wants to hear, for whatever bizarre circumstances.
It happened at a really mixed party once with Stop Making Sense.
Either that or I put on bleep bloop techno music that doesn't care if you pay attention to it.
Yeah that's fine. I already said we broke up pretty quickly afterwards. I didn't break up with her because of the specifically but the shitty nature of her in that scenario carried over to a lot of other areas. Sucks though because the sex was great. Biggest boobs and nicest ass I've ever had and she didn't have them because she was fat either, she had a perfect hourglass body. Not sure how I managed to score it. Oh well though, other than that she sucked as a person
I have like three close friends.
Two of them listen to stuff like The National and The Antlers etc, so they're not bad to talk about music to. Even if they don't like it they'll take the time to understand and appreciate it.
Other friend is a massive weeb and only listens to anime music and j-rock.
I thought girls loved shit like Casimir Pulaski day. What the hell was wrong with your friend? I played the album for my mom (usually a normie) a while back and yesterday she asked me to put on the "pretty album with the sad song about bone cancer."
Dated an amazing girl who was way out of my league and hit all the fetishes, she even let me cum straight into her ass. But she was a horrible human being and I broke up with her
>chilling with friends
>everything going great
>lil ugly mane lean got me
It was a silent 4 minutes.
>talking to a girl about music
>she says she likes country
>ask her if she's heard of meat puppets
>play the instrumental I am a Mindless Idiot off my ipod for her
>"what was the point of that song?"
FFS this is why I don't play music around my family. They'll be enjoying the song and then 20 seconds of weird noises and they're jumping down my throat. It's almost like they're being triggered by it with how ridiculous they react. Sometimes it's not even anything weird, I put on Trans-Europe Express and my mom asked me to turn it off because it was too repetitious.
I'm "training" my sister to be more open to new sounds when we take drives together. It's easier when there's not everyone else in the house for her to rally with against my music, so I can convince her to give it a chance.

Mac regularly wears suspenders for god's sake.
/mu/ will >imply at me for recommending a compilation, but the Substance 1987 album is a bunch of their non-album singles and B-sides. It's a great place to start with them, they deliberately put as much effort into singles as they did albums. As far as the albums themselves go, it's really hard to go wrong with anything they made from 1983-93, but my personal favorite is Brotherhood.
> of montreal

> wow you guys those damn NORMIES amirite? xDD
i really fucking hate this board at times. you guys claim to be miserable because youre just so misunderstood and special, yet you all listen to the exact same most normal shit there.
it would be fucking awful to have this mindset. to think you have no friends because youre different when really its just because youre insufferable.
In that case I'd recommend their debut album, Movement. But other than that I hate to say that you're pretty much out of luck, after that one they kinda shook off their post-punk Joy Division-y sound and went to making dance music full-time.
Something similar has happened to me a few times. When I was first starting to listen to music I was mostly listening to like the Beatles or Queen so some people keep saying I'm an old man because I liked classic rock even though I don't listen to that much anymore. Later on I would occasionally listen to metal and some people think I only listen to metal despite again, not really listening to it much anymore. To be fair though it's few and far between the times anyone knows or cares what I listen to so it's not like they would know what I listen to on a daily or weekly basis.
>Be before the breakup with my fiance
>In car discussing good glam
>She brings up artists we've already talked about T.Rex,Bowie, or Gary Glitter(Pedophile glam artist we'd make fun of"
>Try bringing up Brian Eno and playing it in her car while we drive to my mom's birthday dinner
>Says it's shit and that she hates it and tells me this is her car and we'll play music that she's okay with
>Not shocked at the idea that she doesn't want to play my music but goes off at me in such a hurtful way for trying to show her an artist I'm very fond of
>Tell her she has shit taste in music which is why she can't appreciate artist that a majority of the bands we listen to take inspiration from
>Gets fucking mad at me and tells me only someone with shit taste would like Brian Eno
>It gets silent for a while
>We make up and have sex later that night and say we love eachother
>This was 3 weeks ago
Recently found out she's bipolar and now does shrooms with a friend of mine and does nothing with her life but post on instagram and live off a college fun
Should of known when the bitch said she didn't like the Eno

Friend once told me when we were talking on a group chat
>yeah anon you probably have the worst taste in music here
fuck you you aren't entitled to an opinion when all you listen to is fucking chillwave and video game soundtracks and your friend who you consider has best taste listens to fucking dad rock. fuck off. I might not have the most eclectic taste in music but it's far more fucking eclectic than yours. I'll go from Marvin Gaye to Merzbow within a matter of minutes. David Bowie to Oneohtrix Point Never within a matter of seconds. Like holy shit just fuck off back to your next league of legends match while you listen to fucking monstercat you pleb shit. Oh yeah, and your "patrician" friend? Little fucking douchebag only fucking listens to pink floyd and spouts his "le music after the 80s sucks ass bro" bullshit. So look here you little fuckass. Fuck off my music tastes. just fuck off.
This right here perfectly sums up what I don't understand about these threads, why didn't you just tell him all this. My dad has God tier musical taste and he just sits there and takes all this shit from my G-Eazy loving old brother and sister, it's depressing as fuck. If you like your music so much tell them they're being a cunt.
>Friends are jizzing themselves over new Logic album
>"Haha anon probably doesn't even listen to rap"
>"I-i like some"
>"I like A Tribe Called Que-
>LFMAO DUDE THATS SOME OLD SHIT GET WITH THE TIMES
I hate that mentality so much
>2 weeks ago with a group of people
>Yo that new pusha t album is sick, I can't wait for the next one
>Yeah man he's one of the best rappers out there
>"I preferred him in Clipse as well, he's great"
>What the hell is Clipse
>"The rap group he was in with his brother..."
>His brother is a rappper?
I have to learn to numb myself to this shit. I think I'm going to spontaneously combust one of these days.
>>Casimir Pulaski Day
>>Put it on for her
>>She's not even really paying attention
>>Halfway through she turns it off
>>"Anon that was literally fucking garbage"
I hope this didn't actually happen. As far as I know people don't talk like that.
Seriously, what do you people expect?
Most people couldn't give a fuck about anything other mainstream stuff especially when they're at a party.
Just because you think you have a good taste in music does't mean anyone else should or will.
Nice song by the way.
