This is a really interesting concept, I think. Pushing your music views upon others. I've had so much music pushed on me, it's not even funny.

Katy Perry's "California Girls"

There's no, "Oh but it has a good beat" here. it just sucks. And so does "Fireworks" for the most part.

Any Mike Posner songs. He's ****ing annoying. I don't like him. His voice isn't that good. And it sounds like he has a speech impediment. But for some reason, everybody is ALWAYS trying to get me to listen to him.

Any Taio Cruz songs. "I throw my hands up in the air sometimes. Sayin-" Shut up.

Taylor Swift. My suite loves her. And I don't know how I feel about her, but I know I don't want to be told to youtube her songs when they all sound the ****ing same.

Honestly, though, being force-fed sucks, even if you like the music. I hate anyone's views being forced upon me but I have to say music bothers me more.

This is something I don't usually talk about, and if I read it over, it probably won't sound very intelligently written, but I'm sure you all know generally what I mean.

It's been a long time since I've had anyone force music on me but I did used share an office with a guy who listened to Wilco every fucking day.

One of my friends listens almost exclusively to dubstep and stuff like Dave Matthews and John Mayer. And while he never tries to force it down my throat (thank god), it really annoys me hearing him talk about music. Either he's talking about all the great dubstep he's been listening to (when honestly he only knows maybe 10 different acts) or he's trying to fit in with other people by saying he likes the same music as them, even when I know he doesn't listen to it.

I think it's all well and good that he likes dubstep and whatnot, if that's what makes him happy. It just really turns my crank to hear him pretending he knows about music.

I try to avoid supermarkets because of the music they play there.
Mainly Duets (blegh) and stuff like Christina Aguilera. Why can't the stupid bint keep one ****ing tone straight... Damn I hate this awful screaming, let me out of here, let me out, aargh!
Something like that.
Problem is, I can't exclude any sound I hear. I hear every ****ing thing.
When we watch TV and my rather deaf father hears everything, I can't hear a thing because of the gas running in the kitchen. I **** you not.

I used to work in a department store that would play mostly top 40s ****. 8 hours a day. Every single time that "1234" by the Plain White Ts came on, I wanted to strangle myself(That song is worse than castration...).

High school was a bad buzz for me in this respect... a lot of my friends listened to Disturbed, Slipknot, Nightwish and Killswitch Engage. At least they also listened to Tool (and Opeth, given some coercion).

Nowadays, this isn't such a problem for me... as long as I overlook the fact that some of my good uni friends are hardcore Bon Jovi and Dream Theater fans

Some people like shoving whatever band they like down your throat and you're pretending to like them because you don't want to hurt his or her feelings.

Currently, I'm having this AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL ATROCIOUS song pushed down my esophagus.

My fav current pop-punk band's last show Nashville got cancelled, and they finally rescheduled for March. They're opening for this band...

Most of my female friends have a fair respectable taste in music, or they don't act like know-it-alls if they only listen to a few artists. My male friends, however

I don't know what it is about me that makes easy friends with these machismo type people. Maybe it's because I hardly judge folks on anything until I hear their taste in music, and by then it's often too late. Examples of what a lot of my male friends around my age are into

Other of my friends who are bit older and more mature (and slightly hipsterish) like better music. It's often stuff I can't get into like Animal Collective, Miike Snow, etc. but it's a refreshing conversation compared to all this sexist rawwwk.

Unless it's a review that interests me or in the mini-review thread I never click them. Especially when people post them in the shoutbox or no apparent reason.
