When a musical preference becomes used as an indicator of a certain lifestyle, it does become very problematic, I agree. Listening to The Fall (while watching Zidane) has become a statement in and of itself for a generation of postpunk existentialists. People eulogise them with the usual "eeew, The Fall" or "eeew, Zidane" but rarely get beyond that. They like them because of what they hope it says about them to other people. That's been going on for years though. Right now it happens to be focused on a mancunian songwriter and a French footballer. God knows who the next generation will adopt.
