Music is so, so, so subjective. Some music can sound like absolute mastery to some, and at the same time be complete trash to someone else.
For example, I hate trap music. To me, it’s basically just random yelling (usually degrading women or bragging about drug and alcohol use) over an annoying beat that was probably created in 4 minutes. But to some, this stuff is gold. Some really connect with this stuff, which is baffling to me.
However, who the hell am I to judge? Some people think my music taste sucks. Green Day is annoying. Weezer is just a bunch of dorks. What’s wrong with Thom Yorke’s eye? Gwen Stefani used to be in a band? My Chemical Romance is for emo kids!
But the thing is, I love these bands and I love their music (for the most part- looking at you Weezer, and those awful 2000s), and it always boggles my mind when someone just straight up says that something I like is “awful”.
What really grinds my gears is when someone says something bad about Radiohead. Really? Do you not have ears? I can get really heated about these things.
But then I take a step back and put myself in their shoes. Then I realize, that they are in the exact same situation I’ve put myself in.
Jacob here loves the Gorillaz. I like the Gorillaz too, they’re a really good , creative band with innovative music videos. But Jacob dislikes most of my music, mocking me sometimes, and I do the same to him and his music taste. I guess it’s just what’s always gonna be the case in terms of something so diverse like music.
