Music, or appreciation for music, is an intrinsic part of any natural human being. It's a primal instinct. If you don't like music it immediately shows the kind of outcast you are.

>Why are normies so preoccupied with music, robots?

They even really like music, they just listen to whatever the media tell them to listen, or if they have some taste to some """""obscure"""" bands/singer from the past.

I do love music, I play music and I listen from all the style, and you're not weird at all for not liking music, hell Islam condemn music so it isn't like it is a basic need of human nature, but normies cannot fathom that there's other humans that don't think like them.

I can't appreciate it as a positive thing or enjoy it for what it is, it either gets in the way of other sounds I'm trying to hear (vidya/conversations), and I consider it an annoying background noise, like a mosquito or something.

I never know how to respond to this. If I say prog-rock and sludge metal or anything other than simply "rock" or "metal" they look at you like you're a fucking autist, but if you just plain say "rock" you look like you have shit taste.

You described it as being noise and that you go out of your way to mute it when you can.

It bothers you and you have personal issues, don't try to turn it into "lel music is 4 normies XD".

Music is one of the easiest forms of expression and escapism for robots.

Maybe you've only been exposed to top 40 crap and haven't found a genre that clicks with you.

Agreed. I don't listen to albums at all. I just listen to the first/last/longest song; experience shows, if it doesn't get straight to the business (and I mean literally, within the first second), the music is bound to be substandard either way.

This is really true.

I listened to essentially nothing but punk and metal for over a decade, going into the most obscure subgenres like anarcho-crust-powerviolence and symphonic-blackened-technical-death-metal and people get upset when I mention that I don't care about The Ramones and The Clash or Black Sabbath and Metallica and other mainstream introductory bands.

I don't know.

I just know that 98% of time, a long intro leads to an underwhelming song because the band relies on 'mood' rather than composition.

But mood is cool sempai.
Too bad for the doors, they made some great 60's rock songs, but their best work is the moody pieces that last 7+ min. (though for a pure composical standpoint, they're way above the standard 3 chords of rock music, modal and such)

I used to be like this, except a bit more neutral. I didn't mute games as the music rarely got into way, but I didn't really listen anything. Nowadays I just occasionally listen to some vidya osts to catch some of the game's nostalgia I guess. I literally don't know what normies listen and probably haven't even heard of the bands they're listening to. Or maybe I've heard, but know nothing more than it's existence when reminded. When asked what I listen to, I simply answer I don't really listen to music and intentionally kill the conversation there as I don't have interest in keeping it alive anyway. If there's one thing I fucking hate it's small talk with no point or genuine interest.

I usually prefer silence if I have to think and concentrate, or quiet music just to silence my tinnitus which can get annoying.

In general, you can identify normieland by the amount of noise it produces. More noise=more normie.

You aren't as crazy as you might think you are anon. This is a lot more common than you might think and its basically because your brain doesn't derive pleasure from listening to music.

Most people here are the complete opposite and get a lot more out of music. Enjoying music is like on a scale and some people are higher up on that scale like musicians or people who dedicate their life to music then you have people around the middle of the "scale" who listen to music everyday and will search out lots of different genres. Then at the bottom you have normies who only listen to shitty top 40 pop yet say things like "music is my life" or people who only listen to movie/videogame/anime soundtracks. You are pretty much at the very lowest point of that "scale" basically. There are actually more people than you might think who are like this, most of them just won't admit it most of the time.

Maybe you are listening to music with the wrong approach.
Rhythm is far from being the only reason to listen to music for instance, as plenty of people, like myself, also appreciate music that has none to little rhythm, like ambient, drone, noise, etc...

I say this because if you start to listen to something with the wrong expectation, you likely won't like it.

Back then I wouldn't understand people that don't like or listen to music, but after getting depression I can relate. Music doesn't sound good and kind of like noise like OP described. Whenever I had the chance before, I'd listen to music, but now I can't even feel an emotional difference between silence and music.

Swans have made music in each of those genres you just described; don't act like they're a poor representation of "listen to this noise for 30 minutes; it's a little bit different at the end from the beginning and it's really loud".
