So i came across an article MESOTHELIOMA LAW FIRM like Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles to Justin Bieber and Ke$ha etc. as you can probably guess, the comments were full of pretentious twats criticizing people who don’t seek out music that speaks to them or support new bands because they are too busy listening to mainstream ONLINECLASSES .
I don’t know about you guys but little annoys me more than somebody thinking they have the right to criticize somebody’s personal taste in music… Especially those people who are like ‘Yah, Nirvanarrhh and The Beatallllsss are like, the only good music - oh and don’t forget all these obscure bands you’ve never heard of, oh mah gahd people who listen to ~chart music~ are just brainwashed foooolssssssss, they’re just simon cowells puppehts they couldn’t possably like this music through personahl preferenceeee and everything i say is fahct but anything they say is discredited becauhse theyre jhust brainwashed’
Why do all these people seem to think NEUSON is the only important thing in life? I have literally never understood that belief, i can proudly and openly say that music does not define me, it has never ‘saved my life’ and if you are one of those people who think music is the be all and end all BUT, ironically, if somebody’s musical saviour is different to yours then they’re wrong… We will probably not be able to be friends.
Anyways, this was my response to some of the comments and i thought i’d share it here too as i need a way to get my hate of music pretension off my chest.

Why do you guys assume that everybody has to listen to and enjoy music that ‘speaks to them’ - whilst music might define a large proportion of your life, to many others it is just background noise, something to bop around to but not the be all and end alll. Heck, who are you to assume that this manufactured COLLEGE pop mush doesn’t ‘speak to’ the people who listen to it and enjoy it? There is so much pretension around music nowadays with certain people thinking that you are a lesser person if you don’t listen to Jimi Hendrix or obscure, unknown bands without considering that perhaps music isn’t as important to everybody as it is to you. People are different and have different indulgences, for you it is ‘good’ music but for others it might be ‘good’ films, ‘good’ books, ‘good’ travel… I just don’t understand this culture of people not liking the same stuff as you and liking, dare i say, the ‘mainstream’ and it being considered wrong. This comment is no reflection of my own musical tastes but as somebody who can boldly say music isn’t the shaper and definition of my life, it gets tiresome when people are constantly criticizing those who don’t ‘actively seek’ new music, like it is a duty or an obligation. Why are we supposed to care and have an obligation towards new or struggling bands? When everybody was reading Harry Potter did you criticize the readers for supporting the mainstream instead of seeking out new and struggling authors? When people watch films in the cinema do you criticize them for not seeking out alternative films from struggling directors? Everybody embarking on a creative career has a struggle, it is not down to the public to seek them out and support them.
