    I'd officially like to announce that I'd like $1 for every time someone mentions the word "Muse" in this thread

    Your musical tastes are extremely different.There must be very few of your friends who can manage to talk music with you.Must be hard.

    Muse and your musical tastes are in direct conflict.Its only natural for you to think Muse are overrated.

    Hey, I can talk about music for hours. I appreciate all variant's of music. I can see why people think Muse are good, I am not dismissing that. Just in my opinion they are overated.

    Maybe his friends are who have exposed him to these different types of music, expanding his tastes.

    What I meant was there must be very few people you know who actually listen to your favorites,especially since you are 18,people around you are probably into metal or rap/hip-hop.

    I suppose my tone was a bit strong,but I meant i understood why Muse were overrated according to you.

    Nope, you were right. I listen to much more varied types of music than my friends do but I kind of like that. I'm different and I like that.

    Music is a very personal thing, which is what it makes it so great. There's something out there that will suit everyone's tastes and that people will like.

    yeah, well said.
    the music i listen to, while not as varied as yours, is about twice as varied as my friends, which can get annoying because they tend to just follow whatever's in (rap or hip hop right now..). and it does make me feel special being different

    Exactly Andy, and that's the only thing I say to people, especially my friends. To try and listen to and experience as many different genre's of music as possible. It's worth it, because even if you don't like that particular genre of music, you learn to appreciate it and get a realisation as to why people like it.

    yeah, i try to do that, but i just can not really accept some types of music (i wont specify which ones), that just seem to unoriginal and boring for me.

    My friends and music...

    I was listening to David Gray in year 8. They come around in year 11 and try to tell me about this guy called David Gray.

    I listen to Jeff Buckley. They come up and ask me about Hallelujah after they see it on the OC.

    I have a whole different bunch of mates who have really opened my eyes music wise though, and for that I'm always indebted.
