I love the questions that were raised by this post. See my response in the comments section on the original post.
Some context: I like (but am not a hardcore fan of) rock and metal music such as Metallica, Halestorm and Evanescence, while not particularly fond of music from Justin Bieber, One Direction and the like. Based on my immature logic back then, I would vehemently tell people that “Justin Bieber is an atrocity to music.” I really want to give myself fifty slaps across the face. Maybe more.
This is because I was forced to not realise, but acknowledge, that there are songs I enjoy, even if they are not purely rock or metal. Songs from Disney movies, classical, video games, a cappella…anything.
I think the bigger question is whether or not one’s taste in music reflect ones character. Perhaps it doesn’t apply to everyone, but it’s something we might not realise. What we do realise, though is how we tend to react to other people’s tastes in music.
