A: Oh you like Band X... I do too. Do you listen to Band Y
B: I liked them before they sold out.
A: I don't think they sold out... they just signed on to a major record label. their music is still good.
B: [Rolls Eyes]
Music elitists who try to out-indie or out-underground a person who is trying to find musical common ground just grate my nerves.... especially when I find myself doing it 0_o
Nonetheless, I challenge you not to lose all respect for a person that lists Nickleback as their favorite band and thinks Kelly Clarkson is the best thing since Captain and Tennille.
