Kanye and Death Grips by far. Blood On The Dancefloor and Tool fans are pretty bad too. Literally any nu-metal band has terrible fans. Juggalos are awful. Floyd fans are awful. Sublime fans are awful. Radiohead fans are awful. I could go on forever.

Definitely prog rock fans by far. Usually when a certain genre is brought up, people will discuss who they like and why, and there might be a dozen or more names thrown around.

But with prog rock it's literally just "OH GOD RUSH OH GOD DREAM THEATER THEY'RE THE BEST BANDS EVER NEIL PEART LET ME SUCK YOUR DICK"

not a band but i fucking hate people who are into festivals. bonnaroo, coachella, anything. 90% of the time they don't even make a schedule it seems; they're all there for the festival. and the weeks leading up to it all you hear is "omg it's so much better than last year, can't wait".

they all have this fucking carefree attitude about life and money that i cannot stand. it's so beyond me. never met someone into going to festivals that i could say i liked.

you're mistaking festivals for shows I think.

I'd hate to be the kind of person who goes to a seven day festival with a fucking tabulated itinerary "Well it's 15:32 now so we need to run over to the second stage for fifteen minutes of <x> before heading over to the fosters stage for twenty six minutes exactly"

they're expensive as shit is what i'm getting at. between that and the hotel and the commute.

why can't you throw a party and do drugs and listen to music? it's much cheaper. also the sound is awful at festival settings so that rules out actually enjoying the music.
>>
>>53031756
The reason people go there is to be carefree and burn money on the fun. It's just like going on vacation. Don't be such a tight wad "old" man.

so you're saying that you're cool with paying 100+ dollars to be locked in a facility in order to do drugs with the off chance you'll coincidentally stumble upon a performance you wanna see?
>>
>>53031710

No progressive rock fan thinks that. It's never been about technicality; it's about progression, hence the name. Songs that are constantly moving and developing, as opposed to standard rock song structure. That is what is appealing about the genre.
>>
>>53031922

its ok not to like deadheads but the band actually has a practice of not repeating sets or songs les than ike 3 or for gigs apart

People who believe "meme-rap" is a thing are pretty annoying.

Not a particular artist, but really any mainstream pop musician. Britney Spears, Adele, Trainor, or any random no name that breaks the top 5. Their fans are always people who will dismiss anything barely outside pop music as "weird," and insist that their favorite music's popularity is evidence of quality.

>>53032252
>I've never met a cool DG fan

I've legitimately never even met a DG fan at all. Some of my friends have heard of them but haven't listened to them, and I've never talked to anyone who has.

Reggae as a whole, but more specifically Bob fucking Marley.

I love Bob Marley, but his fucking white, wannabe gangster fans who rep "One Love" and wear Rasta colors and claim to be Rasta even though they have tattoos and piercings... My fucking high school was full of kids like that.

Also, Odd Future, Eminem, Kottonmouth Kings, Blink-182, Rush, Skrillex and dubstep fans, metal heads, and Avenged Sevenfold.

>>53032456
legitimate question from an olderfag (27): how do young people know what's popular these days? no one listens to the radio, mtv doesn't have videos (I assume, it stopped playing vids back in 2002 or so), so where is the place that people find out about the schlock that becomes pop music?

I'm not interested in listening to it myself, I'm just confused. I thought the internet destroyed all the normal ways that shitty bland music was delivered to my and older generations, so how do the kids all know the same stuff these days?
>>
>>53033710
People just buy singles they hear on Youtube. Also word of mouth and advertising plays a big part. Top albums are very skewed however, you end up with weird results sometimes since nobody buys albums anymore.
>>
>>53033710
I'm assuming the radio in their cars when they drive somewhere. Also probably banner advertisements and stuff like that on iTunes or whatever outlet they use for music. Pop musicians' faces are usually plastered all over those sites advertising new releases. Spotify does that too. Especially if they're already into pop music, they'll be getting advertisements tailored for them.
>>
>>53032777
Dub reggae fans are generally cool.

Also, I don't agree with festival dude but I will say I'm not too fond of festivals, mostly because of the heat and that I have a hard time connecting with people unless I'm rolling. I do like the availability of drugs though and the music, of course.

Promotion through social media and blog sites.

Correction, young prog rock fans suck. There's nothing wrong with liking Rush or Dream Theatre but most people who dig into the genre will find plenty on offer.
