This is one of the most aggravating things. So often people will say they listen to everything, and by that they mean mainstream hip-hop, pop, and some Nickelback and Beatles. l0l

I don't think I've ever heard someone that's actually educated about music use that phrase. It's pretty ignorant.
x1000000

Seen countless internet comments with this attitude, and also believe I've encountered it IRL but I can't remember it clearly.

Default I never seek out music

My whole life i have just had music either come across my ears because it is popular or because someone i know liked/listened to it. any one else? it makes me feel guilty but i've been happy doing it this way and never had a lack of great music to listen to.

I listen to everything

Or let me rephrase that, I will listen to anything.

And probably like it for some peculiar reason.

I actually don't doubt any of that, what bothers me are the twats I've met in real life that claim they listen to everything without realizing there's like 900 genres they've never even heard of, let alone listened to.

Example of a conversation I've had:

Me: so what kind of music do you like
Them: oh anything. i listen to everything!
Me: oh ok!!! so what's your favorite sludge metal band??
Them: huh?

I generally don't bring up music anymore when talking to co-workers or someone who I know is a casual music listener. It's not bad to like whatever's played on the radio, but I swear people find out that I listen to "weird stuff" and they pick on me about it all the time. It's rather annoying, I actually got accused of listening to music that's "different" for the sake of being different. That really pissed me off and I let them know how much of a dickhead they are. I do like talking about music when I meet someone who shares at least a band or two in their library, but that's few and far between here. I've mentioned artists like Aphex Twin, Black Flag, John Cage, Philip Glass, Stockhausen, Brian Jonestown Massacre, My Bloody Valentine, and I receive confused looks. People then accuse me of being something along the lines of being a "hipster" which is beyond stupid. Seriously, why can't I just like the music I like without being judged solely on whether or not someone else has heard of it?

I don't people who say that. Surely they must be able to suggest a band or genre that interest them. My aunty plays the radio to make her feel young yet she has way better music at home. I don't want to be so judgemental, as at least she buys New Zealand music.
