My mum uses the typical "turn that **** down, it's not even music" when I listen to pretty much anything, and then she goes in her room and blasts stuff like Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna etc -_-. One band she's targeted was Yeah Yeah Yeahs, I saw them like 2 years ago and the day of the concert I pretty much listened to them all day and she came in and was like "Is this who you're going to see later?" and I was like "Mhm, they're called Yeah Yeah Yeah's. I can't wait" and she was like "More like No No No's. I could bloody wait" haha. And then I went to Glastonbury the same year and they played and she watched the TV coverage and saw their set and text me saying "That Yeah Yeah Yeahs woman is definitely on something, she's crazy, I mean I'm pretty open minded but this is terrible"

Family wise:

My mother's boyfriend play Bass and he's really into classic rock/Soul and Funk. He is very open to hearing new bands/artists that I play for him and usually wants me to make a mix cd for him every once in awhile to keep him up to date and the new artists that are up and coming with a great sound. He trusts my ears for music. He said I have a producer's ear. I usually break down the sound when talking to him about it and tell him what I would have added or taken out from the beat/instrumentation.

My mother she is more of on the side of easy listening radio station material and she also likes a few pop artists. Moody Blues and Beyonce are two of her favorites.

When it comes to my Friends, they are pretty open to new suggestions in the genres that they listen to. Since I listen to all genres pretty much I'm able to give them recs here and there and they end up liking what I have to offer. Plus they know that I used to be a great online dj and I have an ear for good music. That's the reason why my name is djchameleon, just like a chameleon I'm able to blend into my surroundings and listen to the best music in any genre.

I don't think my family knows what I listen to, with the exception of my two younger sisters. They end up listening to whatever I listen to. We're pretty close in age though, so I can't blame it all on myself.

I've definitely made the mistake of giving my dad songs I've made, which he would proceed to whore out to anything with a pulse, regardless of how I felt about the song. That shit went on for years. I eventually learned not to ever show a parent anything you create unless you're absolutely sure you're fine with it being smeared across the entire universe by people who have absolutely no idea what it actually means, and who are showing people that would never understand to begin with.

As far as friends... depending on the friend, if we have something musical in common, then that person will generally know about that part of my musical taste. Otherwise, it's not something that comes up on a regular basis. It's not like when I was a teenager and my social life was based on music I listened to.

So I guess I don't really have any answer to the original question.
I wonder why I couldn't have just typed that one sentence.
Too late now. The effort is expended.

Family:

My dad listens to radio country(Kenney Chesney, Toby Kieth, Kieth Urban, etc.) exclusively, and I basically have to hide whatever music I'm listening to most of the time, because he makes fun of me for it. Like one time he caught me listening to rap and he called me "Nigger boy" for the rest of the day.

My mom listens to mainly pop radio but doesn't really care what I listen to, and sometimes will sing along to the more accessible songs when we listen to music in the car. She said she kind of likes Arcade Fire and the more accesible songs by Neutral Milk Hotel and Radiohead.

For my friends most of them just listen to whatever's popular at the moment, but recently some of them have started to listen to better stuff. I turned two friends onto Arcade Fire and the Pixies, but that's it. I have another kid who I used to be friends with who liked a lot of 90's Indie stuff and Classic Rock, but hates new music.

And then my best friend who used to like exclusively radio pop now listens to all the Indie I listen to, is starting to get into the Rap I like, but hates the Electronic stuff I like. It's pretty sweet to have someone to show and discuss music with, and who shows you bands back.

That's pretty much my situation too. Actually one of the main reasons I post on MB is because my conversations about music with my friends and family are fairly limited and I need some kind of outlet. Even my friends who are into music aren't as into music as I am. Also, strangely enough considering how much loud noisy aggressive type music I like, I have literally no one that I know in real life who listens to anything even remotely in that ballpark. I don't even think my wife has a very clear picture of what kinds of music I listen to since a good 75% of what I listen to is music I would never play around her.

Most kids my age think I listen to all the same stuff they listen to cause I try to talk about bands that they like and not the stuff I know they wouldn't. That being said all tastes in music I have are pretty much represented in some group of friends I have.

I've had many people say to me things like "I don't know how you can enjoy that unless you're stoned" about a variety of different bands. Especially when I lived in student halls - that said, I often was stoned when I lived in halls.

I remember sometime before christmas I was drinking with two of my friends before we went out - they're both girls who love X Factor. This was a Saturday night, and so I had to sit and watch X factor with them ... and before it one of them happened to say something along the lines of "I don't know if I want to watch X Factor with you, you like terrible music". I just smiled and had a significantly large drink of my wine.

In school most people were aware that I liked different stuff but to be honest it never really affected me in a big way, socially. I kept my music taste to myself in school, for the most part - I rarely spoke to anyone about what I liked, although like I say people knew I had "weird" taste. I have a lot of friends now who enjoy similar music to me, but in school I knew of nobody who liked the bands I liked. To be honest, lots of my best friends in school are now into the stuff I like, and tell me they wished they'd listened to it sooner. Again, I just smile condescendingly

I might have lost it. Sounds like you handled it well.
