Default Friends and families reactions to your taste in music

We've all had friends and families scoff at what we listen to, mainly because of their terrible taste. But it still makes results in lots of funnies.
So what have some of your friends had to say about certain albums/songs/artists you've been listen to?

My most noticeable ones:



I showed a friend the joys of Loveless, not the whole album, just a few tracks.
He said 'Sometimes' was just NOISE.
And then when I showed him a couple of other tracks, he said that it was worse than a live abortion.

I then showed my nan the wonders of Straight Outta Compton (purely for the lulz):



I don't think she's a fan of Gangsta Rap.

Yes, I know this is a thread that's laughing at how inferior real life people's taste in music is to our oh so elitist much superior tastes. But fuck it.

Back when I first discovered the more Avant-Garde types of music, my mom was appalled by what I was listening to:
Her reaction to Zs: Where's the music? this makes no sense!
Her reaction to Battles: Most of it is instrumental. Why do people like instrumenttal music? it's not catchy or anything
Her reaction to Kayo Dot: It's just screaming!
Her Reaction to Loveless: Where's the music? all i hear is BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

My stepfather's reaction to my music:
When I fist discovered BOC: I hate electronic music, but just as long as it's not dance
When I started listening to Aphex Twin's dancey-er tracks: Eh... Zoe, that sounds a little dancey
When I was listening to Daft Punk: TURN THAT **** OFFF!!!!!!!

My Bio Father's reaction to my taste in music: Hey, you should send me some youtube videos of that. Sounds Awesome. I'm glad that you're not an Ed Hardy Mainstreamer Douchebag!

I had a discussion with my sister and her friend about bass players and we were saying our favourites. I mentioned Jaco Pastorious and she looked him up on youtube. She replied later saying "you must smoke weed or something, that stuff is weird. That'd be good on weed."

"I hate the singer's voice."



Mom: "It's too fast. It's not even music."



Brother: (thought I made the music as a joke) "Come on, nobody's gonna believe that's real."

When people call the music I like "weird" I get very annoyed. It's only "weird" because you don't know anything about it, so why flaunt your position of ignorance?

My brother and dad have almost exactly the same taste in music that I do, so no complaints there, and I share a love for Motown with my mom. When I'm home and playing RATM (which can only be listened to blaring) she immediately shuts it off though.

My GF likes your usual flavour of the day (Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, etc.). I gave up trying to get her to listen to good music almost right away. Tried to convert her to Radiohead starting with Kid A (bad decision, way too weird for her), and thought I'd have more luck with OK Computer. She told me she thought Karma Police was ok but I'm pretty sure that was just to get me to shut up.

MBV is really a love 'em or hate 'em type deal. You might have had some luck if you played Soon though. That song is so addictive.

Weird is a good thing Conan.
My friends have a very weird reaction to my music. I think I hav got to the point that they think of my musical taste as some sort of handicap. The other day I tried to howl like a wolf at show rehearsals and a girl in the show asked "Have you heard the song Shewolf?" I then heard my frind whisper to her quickly "Don't go there, he likes unknown stuff".
Don't know how that made me feel.

I'd feel proud. I've got a little bit of a reputation with some friends of mine as having the most out there taste. Feels pretty good to me. Like I'm in on some massive secret they aren't. Snobbishness comments aside, it does take a little restraint sometimes when they obviously don't know what they're talking about in regards to genres and stuff.

I don't even try with family/friends anymore when it comes to music. Apart from my brother who I share an extremely strong friendship with mostly through music, I can't get anyone to understand it.

I think it should but they see it as a bad thing. One friend of mine recently discovered The Pixies and he refuses to discuss them with me. I think I might be an elitist.

My dad said that "Black Bubblegum" by The Dillinger Escape Plan is not music. It's funny because it's not even one of their mathcore songs, it's pretty much just a pop tune.
