Has anyone bothered to check Pink.'s posts?

If she's a troll, she's lousy at it. Posts art, starts threads, comments, etc.

The first time I remember being aware of music as a trend suddenly shifting was as a (pre-death) Nirvana fan circa 1996 when dance music & hip hop became the popular thing to listen to, and I was mocked for still listening to Nirvana (etc) by the very same people who had just months earlier been listening to it too. What perplexed me is that I legitimately enjoyed that music, which is why I listened to it - I hadn't realized so many people had just become "fans" in the aftermath of Kurt's death, and abandoned it for the next big trend to (I guess) stay popular in high school.

Now, I enjoyed Nirvana and Sonic Youth. I was ridiculed for it. I have to consider that these kids may have actually liked that dance/hiphop regardless of whether it was the current trend. I barely gave it a chance, so in many ways I was no better. I remember music being a BIG identifier in my teenage years, whether positive or negative (I always felt I was born about 5 years too late and was basically acting like a kid trying to fit in with the ghost of a peer group that had long passed).

Nowadays, I appreciate music based on whether I listen to it and enjoy it, and that's all. I'm not actively seeking out any of the current popular music, but I can't deny that people enjoy it - and there's nothing wrong with that. Recently Lou Barlow posted a link to the newest Taylor Swift video on Facebook, singing its praises, so I listened & watched and it was actually really good! In my opinion, and apparently Lou Barlow's (and a few million others?). I can see how that would be a big argument in high school, but now it just doesn't matter (although it can be fun to debate musical tastes in a civil manner, I suppose...).

I think I may have had a point when I started, maybe how it's just funny to think back on how much music could drive rivalry in high school. No, I guess what intrigued me more was the idea that people could just change to accommodate a trend, and how that never seemed natural to me...I'm not saying good or bad either way (too late now!), I just find it interesting.

Oh, I remember my actual point. That for some people, music is just a background accessory and not something that defines them, so they will naturally listen to what's popular (and usually what's popular is popular for a reason). People who have a different sort of connection with music are obviously going to seek out things beneath the "popular" surface and listen to things that really excite them. Again, not saying good or bad (I certainly wish I wasn't as obsessive...), just interesting. I can't imagine not being totally fucking obsessed with music.

I graduated from High School in 1988. I don't recall music trends for listeners back then. However, I do recall some artist trending in odd directions. Jimmy Page became a member of, The Firm. Rick Ocasek was leaving The Cars and going solo while ZZ Top started using electronic drums.

At the time, in my opinion, there was no "trend" indicating fans were wanting any of this. At the time, ZZ Top fans in Texas were pissed! Of course, we didn't have message boards to sound off on and we had to listen to the radio to hear anything new.

In the mid to late 80's, your willingness to search out anything different placed you in some sort of elitist category. Buying my first Legendary Pink Dot's release didn't make me elitist over others, but my determination to search them out and learn about the group, that made me different from others......others being everyone who was satisfied by simply listening to what was being played on the radio.

Today, can a couple clicks of a mouse make you elitist?

OH OH and #2. There is no such thing as a "good taste" in music. Everyone's taste is shit, just like yours and just like my taste.

there may not be a rigid definition of what sucks, but there is most definitely an ongoing consensus!!!

I mean, will anyone unearth C&C Music Factory and try to claim them as seminal musicians? NO!

Liking good music, film, and literature is a lonely ride in high school. But you can still have friends with different interests. I had music friends, sci-fi friends, weirdo friends, and quiz bowl friends. Nobody liked Sonic Youth as much as I did, but whatever, they liked Black Flag & Minutemen & other cool shit and that was good enough.

You're also ahead of the curve. I didn't start to really get into musictil 16-17. Some people don't until college. As you get older you'll feel less lonely.

I don't think music taste really played significant part in defining oneself in high school. In general, I don't remember people really giving a shit about what you liked. Although, maybe I just wasn't social enough to acknowledge all this. Also, as I got older, I've constantly become less and less concerned with what people are into.

I'm surprised if things like this still matter, in this day and age where everyone can find their own little niche through the internets and social media. But maybe it's different over there in north merryca. Your high school stereotypes and cliches don't seem to apply here.

everything superficial and emotional matters when you are 13-20. It has been conclusively demonstrated that the human brain is still forming it's adult state at these ages, and that decisions are mostly made purely on emotional resonance, and not logic, or actual critical thinking about the situation.

you just like weirdo rock music. i guess kids your age consider that a lame thing, but just wait 3-4 years, trust me being a hipster will be the shit. no one of your peers will care about Justin Bieber or Nicklodeon band anymore. some of them will even dedicate their lives trying to develop a hipster image/identity. you're years ahead of their time.

It sucks to be called a hipster by people at school because your favorite bands are Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, The velvet underground etc..
I feel the same fucking way. im 14 too and I like all those bands and it sucks because i have never met ANYONE i can relate to. When i do find people they only know like one song by them espeacially when i talk about nirvana.
