Hey guys, thanks or front page.
As always people are taking things too seriously and misinterpreting stuff, and as I try to explain what I meant I got ********* of butthurt comments. Don't really care about that, but dome friendly advice - you don't have to be so mad over some picture you saw on a site.
I can see people went through the comments just to thumb down mine, even the ones that don't have anything to do with this. It's really sad.
Hope you enjoyed.

He was only describing what rock listeners do, not how to be a true rock listener.

Yes, butOH PEEdidn't tell you how you should act, he just showed you how you could act if you wanted to, he never told you to act a certain way

That's kind of a problem, because anybody telling you "open your mind" is telling you what to do by saying that.

how does knowing every album make you a 'true' rock fan. Just have to enjoy the music.
clearly the person posting this thinks he/she is cool for liking rock, hence labeling others and acting like he knows what a 'true' fan is.

Well, if you ARE a true fan of some artist, you should know more than just hits by that musician. I'm not saying you should love a whole album as that's nearly impossible, but I hate people wearing Iron Maiden shirts when they know 3 songs.

yes i agree, but if u live to songs solely because they are hits, and others know it, then i suppose u are a poser, but if you listen to the hits and like them simply because they are good songs still means u are a legitimate fan, if you look more into the artists work and find u only like the hits, still doesn't mean u r a poser, it just means the hits are genuinely good songs.
and yes i do agree i hate people who wear the rolling stones tongue symbol t shirt without even knowing the band
its like wearing a peace sign whilst looking for a fight

Of course the hits are good songs, never said somebody shouldn't love them, but you must admit it's very rare that somebody who really loves Queen likes only the hits while knowing their other work.

What is this fascination with Queen ****? They were a decent band but you guys make them out to be gods or something, you don't see you guys talking up Miles Davis or Dylan...

yes but im jus sayyin, for instance, i like few velvet underground and lou reed songs, but their hits, and believe me, ive looked into it, and overall i only like their hits
whenever i hear one great song i look into the artist's music and try to squeeze every song of their's that is good onto my library, but for some, only the hits are good
like the beatles for instance
I have 112 songs of theirs
ALL HITS
cuz every ******* song the beateles made are hits

Okay, but you don't go around parading your love for velvet underground and lou reed.
Also the beatles do have some non-hit songs, and they're equally amazing.

first three metallica albums (aka, cliff burton on bass) it is impossible to be a fully functioning human being and dislike a single song from kill em all, ride the lightning, or master of puppets.

This post is self defeating.

Slag off peoples music taste and then tell them to open their minds? Shut up. Music isn't a competition, it's entirely subjective. It doesn't matter if someone likes only popular music.

I didn't say **** about anybody's taste in music. This is referring to rock, but I never said you should only listen to rock. What I'm saying is that posers really annoy me, and that if a person really likes rock music they should actually listen to what they say they listen. Don't talk about people like they're your idols and wear bands' t-shirts if you only heard a few songs and claim you're a hardcore rocker.
And I just said to open your minds, that can't be bad. I never said NOT to listen to the popular songs. I just said 'listen to the less popular songs too'.

Why? So you can be a 'true rocker'?
Does it really matter what music they listen to? It certainly doesn't discredit you as a fan, and even if it did, that shouldn't matter if you truly like the band and aren't just in it for the image.

No, so you can discover something new and special and amazing. This post is really meant to push people towards discovering what they love. If you really think music is great, why not love it properly? Do you know the feeling you get when you discover a new song you like?
I'm really not saying this because of how much I hate posers or whatever (they do annoy me but they're mostly kids, let's face it) but because people should learn to enjoy music better. It's their own benefit.
You can say it's none of my business and I agree, but it's the internet and still we're arguing.
Is this any of your business either? No, but you still want to say something.

I want to point out your hypocrisy.
And you are still implying that there is a right and wrong way to be a fan of a band. "Why not love it properly?" There is no right and wrong. Get off your high horse.

Are you saying there's no such thing as superficial people who claim to love and admire bands while they really only listened to the hits? That's what this is about.

That's not what I am saying at all. In any way.

I am saying that you shouldn't give a **** about them, because the only reason it would matter is if you so desperately crave the label of 'true fan' from other people.

I just don't like people who annoy me, no matter how unimportant they are in my life. I'll bitch about all sorts of morons during the day, doesn't mean I want their approval or anybody else's.

I never even mentioned taste in music. I'm talking about people who talk about how music is their life and parade their love for some bands while they haven't even heard their whole albums! I know a lot of people who act like that.

I never said people should label themselves (see the t-shirt thing above). But you can say you mostly like rock, people often do like a certain genre better than all others.

And by the way, good metal does exist outside of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Pantera, and anything from the 1980s. Preparing for red pinkies.

Indeed, I've always seen these kind of posts like "Hey, i'm a true rock/metalhead and this is how you have to be if you want to be as true as me!"   
quite poser....
