Is there such a thing as shit music? When people dismiss music I like as shit I just take the attitude that it is not to their taste, which is fine. Similarly, when I call music shit I am aware that to some people it can be great.
One way of thinking is that if some people think a band is great then they cannot be shit, because some people enjoy it. Taste varies, so maybe music cannot be shit as a matter of fact, but instead shit in the individuals opinion.
Another way of thinking is that music is either shit or good or the varying degrees in between. This assumes that you either know what is good or you don't, and some people just have terrible taste. If this is the case, who decides what is shit and what is good?
I have always been of the opinion that I have my taste, and others have theirs, but I have my moments of hearing what sounds to me like horrible horrible music, and in those instances I cannot understand how anyone can like it, and I start thinking that those who like it are deluded or just plain wrong.
Hmm. Not sure how well I put that across, but I'm interested to hear people's opinions.
