Musicbanter has taught me, I believe, everything that I know about music. I'm not going to be that elitist prick that thinks that I came to this site with the wealth of knowledge that I have today. I will say that I owe, honestly, 70% of my musical knowledge to MB. And for that I will be forever grateful. This site is honestly one of best sites that I have ever come across and I'm proud to say that I am a part of this wonderful flourishing, community.

If there is one band in particular that I'd like to singularly thank MB is for introducing me to Carissa's Wierd. Words cannot describe how perfect this band is to me and how much they've done for me. They're simply perfect and I owe me finding them to Musicbanter. This is one band that I'd say with the utmost, 100% confidence that they are in fact one of the best bands I've ever had the pleasure of listening. In fact, if I ever come across anyone that thinks they're not good, I'll instantly think that you have poor musical tastes. Even if you dabble in Sigh, to Austere, to Coltrane, to The Residents, to Nick Drake.. Simply put, everyone has that one band that they'd put their neck on the line. This, is mine. And Musicbanter, you have my sincerest thanks for that.

No I have drunken Englishman fingers and it gets tiresome typing out words when a single letter will suffice.

I learned how to download large quantities of songs at a time without paying a cent.

Edit: but more importantly, exactly what Dr. Seussicide said in his first paragraph. Thanks MB.

They give elitism a bad name for those who really do have a superior taste in music, like me.

Me Too!

MB has taught me, or helped me fully understand:

  • Most people renouncing a musical movement are unaware of their place in another that became accepted for the same basic reasons, but with a different spin.
  • They will deny that.
  • Talking about music you like is synonymous with talking about yourself. And when people "listen", they're simply waiting for their turn to talk. Music discussion is a majority percent: self-love.
  • Same goes for other discussion, which is why you can consider this masturbation.
  • People often defend their music preference with as much vigor as they would defend their own morality. The intensity at which they do so speaks volumes about their personalities. And then other times, it's just a case of someone not knowing what they like until enough people tell them what it should be.
  • Music preference is, at all times, a virus.
  • There are an embarrassing amount of people here that are likely to misinterpret the above bullet.
  • Vanilla is horny 100 percent of the time. This cannot be refuted.

Because of musicbanter I:
Appreciate other genres, because of musicbanter I now enjoy post-hardcore/emo, rap and most importantly I discovered now one of my favorite types of music, folk-punk thanks to this website. As a matter of fact I went from typical indie kid to something much more diverse. Plus it introduced me to cllct.com, which may be one of the greatest music websites I've ever found. So thank you musicbanter!
