How obscure is your taste?

I'm only at 73% right now, I'm getting there.

My tastes have changed so drastically since I got Last.FM a few years ago that I really can't rely on "overall." However, in the last 12 months my musical taste is 55.4% more obscure on average. And in the last 6 months, 62.2%! My overall is 40.8%. I am 21.8% more obscure than all the users of Last.FM!

This is fun. Haha.

62.6% more obscure than other Lastfm users, 57.7% on average.

That was a fun 30-seconds.

72.5% here. I blame all my recent listening of the Beatles, Beach Boys and Rolling Stones for such a low number.

8.5% personally

33.5% obscure on average.

However, I jump to around 55% when I look at my last year/6 months. Only really started looking for obscurity in that time.

I don't have a lastFM account so I can't really gauge my collection.

But, SIANspheric is one of my favourite bands and they rate with an 89.4% obscurity rate hahaha (then again most Canadian bands rate around 80% obscurity or so it seems). Though I figure I'm closer to the 65% mark myself.

then again most of my plays are due to girl groups that nobody's heard of and 70s glam groups.

I can't really use that accurately on myself. When I started using Last.FM I just started accepting any recommendation I saw site unseen. So 90% of the bands on my account I've never even heard of, let alone listened to.
