    eminem has some amazing songs and I feel like I have bands that would destroy what ALL ETC had to say about modern music.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    Face it, if Justin Bieber goes, someone new, and worse will pop up. Columbia isn't happy unless they have some teenage heart throb for little girls to gush over.

    To be honest, if it pleases the masses of gullible, impressionable teen girls, than who am I to intercede? My sister is into Justin Bieber, I will never know why. Much to my delight, she also likes the Offspring. I think she'll grow out of Mainstream pop sooner or later.

    I'm upset at the way people view hip hop, there are a lot of great hip hop artists. You just have to ask around.
    Your back's to the wall, that's protocol;
    It's sequestering your spirit, misleading us all.

    That awkward moment when you realize you listen to artists from both sides of the list, except of Bieber, T-Pain and The Jonas Brothers...

    And even more awkward when you realize you actually prefer Taylor Swift over Breaking Benjamin.

    EDIT: Actually no, it's not awkward... I'm not ashamed of my musical taste.

    This is just another classic example of when the opposition to something mildly annoying is far more annoying than the thing itself. I could not give less of a shit about Bieber one way or another, so I fucking hate going to completely unrelated youtube videos and seeing the top comments all be about that kid in one way or another.

    "LOL this is almost as gay as Justin Bieber!" (automatic 15 thumbs-up)

    "This band kicks ass! THIS is what people should be listening to and not that Justin Bieber fag!!!" (automatic 20 thumbs-up)

    This type of thing has been happening forever. It's still going on with Nickelback, because dumping on their music is the safest ground ever for validating one's own taste in music. It even happened on this BBS back a few years ago when a bunch of young British posters would not shut up about "chavs." If "chavs" actually exist, sure, maybe they're annoying, but there is absolutely no way in hell they were as annoying as people who complained about it.

    Probably the earliest example of this that I could relate to was Adam Sandler back in the late 90s and early 2000s. I never thought he was the funniest guy ever, and yes, a lot of the time he was painfully unfunny. But I thought a couple of his movies were pretty amusing. Back then, people who were anti-Sandler felt the need to be as vehement as they possibly could about it, and they always came off as elitist. Oh, you think a guy who wrote a song called "Dip Doodle" is "immature"? Congrats on forming that opinion! So, while I was never a huge Adam Sandler fan, I was always rooting for him. Whenever he had a new movie come out, I always wanted it to actually be good so that people might shut the fuck up. I hope Bieber comes out with a really kickass album sometime soon.
    "LIVE OR DIE, MAN??"

    "DIE!!!!!"

    "WRONG! HOOOONK!"

    That's something I appreciate and respect about you. You have terrible taste in music, you know you have terrible taste in music, but you own it. You don't give a shit what people think or say, and instead you like what you fuckin' like. More people should be like this. It's how I am about the movies I like. I have terrible taste in movies, and I don't care. No shame. I like what I like and shut the fuck up

    As stated earlier in this thread, I don't think Nickelback is comparable to Bieber, simply because of the demographic. While I never would hear anything about Bieber if it weren't for the haters, it can be pretty infuriating trying to avoid Nickelback-obsession. People who talk positively about Bieber are like 13; for Nickelback, they're in their 20s. Since I work with adults all the time, and all my friends and acquaintances are adults, I'm much more likely to find myself defending why I don't like Nickelback.

    Hating Nickelback is also a way of bonding for me.

    Probably the earliest example of this that I could relate to was Adam Sandler back in the late 90s and early 2000s. I never thought he was the funniest guy ever, and yes, a lot of the time he was painfully unfunny. But I thought a couple of his movies were pretty amusing.

    I totally agree with you here. Will Ferrell is the new Adam Sandler in this regard.

    In most cases I respect people's movie opinions. What really bothers me is when people are like "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and The Phantom Menace are way better movies than Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back." Okay, first of all, yes, I am a nerd. Second of all, The original trilogy is a hundred times greater than the new movies.

    But sometimes my taste isn't very good either. I love the Transformers movies. I also love that 2010 movie "Predators". The sequel style movie to the original Predator movie. It would bother me if someone said that Predators is a much better movie than Citizen Kane, or something of that nature. A movie doesn't need to be a masterpiece to be enjoyable, and just because I like it doesn't mean it's an amazing movie.

    Okay that's the end of my rant.

    I only listen to Mamaleek now. It's the only non-commercial music. It is the only music.

    You say Justin Bieber, I say Worlds Apart.

    Shitty bands made for teenage girls always existed and honestly, I feel it is a little bit better that guys chose to make little girls happy are now teenagersinstead of full grown men. So yeah, I completely agree with Pilz-E

    What sucks is I can't guarantee that if I were 13-14 now, I wouldn't be secretly in love with Justin Bieber.
