You have to be some kind of freak not to like music lol.

I love all kinds of music. Just has to be good. You just know when something is good. And the best music is the music that can make you feel something.

I’m not a big fan of rap, but I love the early Eminem stuff. His ability to play with words was astounding. He’s mostly terrible now, he looks like a butch lesbian or trans female to male with that weird beard and just shouts everything. But then again he’s almost 50 and rap is a young mans game.

I couldn't hmmm or name a song that has come out since 1990, probably 1980.

I just quit listening to "pop" of any kind, I guess you do that when you get old.  Fortunately the wife likes the same kinds of music as I do, including country, jazz, R&B, rock, Big Band, and of course classical.  I don't listen as much as I once did though, not sure why.

I stopped following what the latest thing was when I went into the Army in 1979. Didn't have either the time or the inclination to listen to it, and it had gotten so bad in the late '70s--Disco, anyone?--that I had gotten out of the habit.
I got into a little bit of country--Randy Travis, Dottie West, The Judds, et. al.--in the '80s.  "Got into" means I bought a couple of CDs of each.
I can recall Eric Clapton of the '90s.  Ten Summoner's Tales was the CD, I think.  Hootie and the Blowfish.  And Big Band music.
Now it's Big Band, jazz, classical, some '50s and '60s. I think Garth Brooks cured me of ever again being interested in current C&W.

I guess I'm fairly typical of an American male.  I certainly enjoy music, as we all note, and am lukewarm to visual arts, dance, theater is OK, ...

I like scenery outdoors.

Huh, I wonder if appreciation of hte visual arts takes more training or investment to understand by that painting of a red square is so moving.

I think, on the average, people tend to stop keeping up with new music around the age of 32.

I'm fine with music.  I'm just too busy/tired to find new music I like, and I'm sort of sick of the music I already know I like, and don't like enough new mainstream music that's served up to me.  There's generally a song or two out there I like.

I love live music in small venues, of all kinds, but hate large concerts.  I think that last concert I went to was Queen with Adam Lambert back in maybe 2015?

We have season tickets to a theater here so we see about 5 musicals a year.  Generally I'm familiar with 1 or 2 of them, and of the 3 or so I'm not, one is generally a pleasant surprise and 2 are forgettable.

I think you're a little high,  if you're talking about mainstream new music.
I do listen to a lot of new music but it tends to be 'college radio' / indie centric.  Some of it is outstanding, some of it awful.  What qualifies as rock anymore is hard to define.  The genres have become quite blurred in many ways. Still lots of imitation and copy cat acts thats always been the case. Having said that, it is very tough to find many  bands w conventional arrangements with much mainstream appeal.  They tend to be older.  Times change, thats fine, but the pressure to tour tour tour as nobody buys an album anymore has really put that genre, to the extent it exists anymore into a niche.

When i see some of these indie bands the crowds at these non festival venues leans older.  30-49.  Show up at a Festival and its younger, but that's more of a social function imo, then whos interested in the band or performer on stage.  I'm 44, I don't want to stand out in a field with young punks with their phones out constantly taking pics and recording stupid stuff.  Ill happily see that same band in a dark hole in the wall bar in a city for 90 minutes though.

I remember seeing War on Drugs a few years ago and maybe 10% of the crowd was under 30.  Jason Isbell, same thing.  Conversely the Metallica show I saw last year had a bunch of youngsters, the kids of the parents that dragged them to see them.  ;)

I think for many of us, it was when kids came along, which can be around that age of course.  I recall in high school is was "necessary" to have a favorite group, and if you say someone prosaic like "The Beatles", you weren't cool, and being cool was, well, cooler than not being cool.

"We" were so consumed with being cool, with fitting in, with conforming to noncomformity, being an athelete and dating that cheerleader ....

Time comes back around - my oldest daughter is all about new music but has a pretty healthy like of classic rock and regularly wears Beatles, Cash, and Stones tshirts.  She even kind of likes bluegrass.  Can't get her into most classic country though.

I listen to rock/metal, but search out classical/opera and theater for live performances.  Regarding art, we collect and I enjoy going to museums when we travel.

Yep. Modern rock is basically alt-rock. Much of what is called "alternative" these days is half-pop or half-electronic. Modern country is basically rock with a twang or pop with a twang. 

My wife likes to listen to Y2Kountry on SiriusXM and I'm always perplexed by the duet song by Kid Rock and Cheryl Crow, "Picture", showing up on that station. The song isn't country, and neither artist is in any way considered country. 

Darius Rucker went from being the frontman for Hootie and the Blowfish to being a country artist, and barely anything in his music changed.

Musical genres are more confusing than modern genders.

Cheryl Crow played my old HS on the fourth of July a few years back. Joan Jett, the year before that. 

Evidently they were pretty good at enticing washed up rock divas to be the opening act for their fireworks show.

agree with all these points and analogies...  In some regards, I think it is great one struggles to label a band or song.   However, it does make it confusing when discussing likes/dislikes.
