I think that "bad" as an adjective only works if we define it as "narrow minded". Just like Jansz said.

Definitely. Narrow mindedness and neglecting artists based on genre are two very important factors that would lead one to believe that someone has bad taste.

I tend to try out everything regardless of genre.

There is no such thing as bad taste. In fact who says that is a person who a full moron.

The funny thing about me is that actually I am a very open minded. I primiarily a Urban and African (very Congolese) music fan. But I listen to others too. For example, late Colombian star Joe Arroyo. I did not think he was valuable. But after he passed and then I decided to hear him and now I can say I made the right decision. Joe Arroyo is one of the masters of music in general. His voice always remained just tight. I now want others to hear about Joe Arroyo.

I actually like some rock bands. I like Nirvana, Ac/Dc, Green Day, Grace Potter, and Metalicca.

I try to keep a open mind.

Of course I am a big fan of Franco (check him out, I mean Franco Luambo) and Pepe Kalle (check him out too). That is why I name myself Franco Pepe Kalle.

I wouldn't say so. I do wish I could enjoy music for what it accomplishes or does musically, as opposed to it just affecting me in one way or another. For example, progressive house. It is complex? No. Does it take a good deal of musical knowledge to create it or understand it? No. It sounds... nice. It reminds me of the beach and of warm weather. It's positive and upbeat. Now say I check out a new album which gets a lot of praise, and I like it. It's never for the reasons it's positively reviewed. I just... like it. It bothers me.

I never understood the idea of enjoying a piece music based on its complexity. Sure, complexity can bring in enough interest to keep you listening to a piece but If it's not saying anything to me it really won't matter how long I pay attention to it, I'm still not going to think much of it.

I think like you said Ki it's subjective so it's hard to say whether someone has "bad" taste in music because to them, or to others, their taste in music might be perceives as "good."

However I would describe someone with "bad" taste in music not so much as someone who is narrow-minded in their tastes (who says it's "bad" if someone only likes one particular genre?) but someone who can't appreciate other types of music outside of their comfort zone. For example, my tastes in music might only be limited to a bunch of different genres. BUT, I can appreciate music outside of these genres even though I don't necessarily like it - I can appreciate it for what it is.

It's a hard topic to discuss though because it's totally subject to personal preference...

^ I definitely agree on being able to appreciate the different genres. And I know it's a pretty tough topic to discuss, but it's always a good one to bring up because you start to understand how people go about listening / enjoying the music they listen to, mostly because we all approach the music we like differently.

Yeah that's how I am too. I'll like anything, no matter how complex or simple, as long as it does something for me. I almost never know what that something is, but complexity is rarely a factor. As far as I know, it's simply enjoyment from listening to it. Every now and then I'll listen to the local Classical/Jazz station (Classical in the day time, Jazz at night) and I enjoy most of it, it's just a matter of liking it enough to seek it out. That's very, very rare.

Actually I am. You will be surprised to find that I enjoy Janis Joplin too. I also like some hispanic music too.
