but when it's attributed to bands like that who really don't deserve anything more than an occasional "that song's quite good" (and that's possibly twice in the case of U2 and Pearl Jam) it make me ponder the person's sanity and usually avoid them.
I dunno, I think I embellished my response for intended but failed amusement, but I do just find it odd when people are like it
yeah, i fucking hate it when people are like that.
It's obviously fine if they like the bands loads. But it seems like with these bands in particular seem to create odd fanboys
but i'll agree with you on the muse point. i have met some really fucking odd people at muse gigs.
but hey, i used to be one of them.
just avoid them
understood why everyone loves U2.
just never. all of their songs seem very very forgettable.
ii'm probably wrong, but i just don't understand!
it's like weird obsessive teenage girl fans of placebo...
I'd only distrust their taste.
And spot on with the occasional "that song's quite good" comment.
...but if I met someone who was a really big fan of a huge, bland rock group (substitute Red Hot Chili Pepeers for Muse in this instance) I probaly would find it hard to relate to that and imagine they weren't someone I had enough with in common to be friends with.
I distrust anyone who doesn't like Seinfeld, sunshine, London, Olives, or meat come to that.
I would distrust people who only listen to Muse and Pearl Jam. Would definitely distrust people who liked U2. But having said that, I have slight misgivings about people who rave on and on about The Beatles et al.
Nine Inch Nails and Tool to that list. People who love those bands without question are usually crazy.
downward spiral without question but not NIN in general.
but people who are obsessed with them are crazy and cannot be reasoned with.
do people like the red hot chilli peppers?
i mean, seriously?
quite like their taste in music.
whether or not they are cunts.
