Exactly.

Like when you reply with "o, i like buckethead, john fruscainte, and cire" i just get a look back like you an idiot, what are you talking about, or Buckethead...that guy wears a KFC bucket on his head, your taste stinks.



Thats a hard one to defend to your average listener.

If people ask me what type of music I like I just say 'most of it'

Yeah, but I think there's a difference between that and being the kind of person who can't answer simply because they've never formulated their own music tastes. They're interests are entirely built by top-ten radio and whatever happens to be in their friend's CD player.

If that makes sense.

The sorts of people I know wouldn't even have heard of Modest Mouse and Morrissey.

That's why if somebody asks me, I just say Akon and Nickelback.

I've gotten blank stares talking about Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd before, so the popular thing doesn't always work.

I find people generalize recognize the name Morrissey though most don't seem to be aware of anything about him...at all. Modest Mouse is huge here.

Just the other day Zeppelin came up in a conversation and there was a chick that never heard of them... I had a hard time trying to think of a song she would have heard ("Stairway" didn't work), I found it amusing.

I just say Rock N Roll... most people have heard of that
