I find that when people ask what music I like, it’s not really because they’re interested in what music I like so much as they’re just desperately hoping I enjoy the same music as them (I usually don’t) and sometimes they even do it just so they can trash on me for liking things that are “too mainstream” or “too dark” and just use it as an excuse to take shots at me.
In general, I hate anyone that refers to themselves as a “music fan” because they’re pretty much all self-righteous pricks.
I just listen to music. I would never call myself a “music fan.” Or even a fan of a particular band or genre of music, since I’m open to so much.
Remember the golden rule of the internet:
It’s okay to not like things, but don’t be a dick about it
