    I really don't think it is anyone's place to say who listens to 'good' or 'bad' music. It is completely subjective. People commenting telling you have good taste in music is just as irrelevant as the person who originally told you that you have bad taste in music. It is your personal preference. People who listen to certain music to fit in with the cool kids, or who listen to completely obscure music so they can be hipsters and different from everyone else, they are both relatively flawed. Just listen to whatever the hell you want and don't give a **** what anyone else thinks.
    Are you sure because im in my late twenties and still listen to stuff like justin bieber, busted, aaron carter, maroon 5, blink 182, michael jackson and have just listened to a song by frankie concozza.

    I like a bit of dance type music too like labrinth in fact i looking for some new stuff similar to this to wean me off the uncool stuff.

    Am I sure about what? Not really sure what point you're trying to make here, or the relevance of any of the bands/singers you listen to...

    You listen to Björk, you are awesome.
    Also, contrary to what many people say, I think Ed Sheeran is great. Speaking as a musician, I highly appreciate his attitude towards his music. Like, he doesn't give a **** if half the crowd he's performing to has illegally downloaded his album because as long as his music brings joy to them, he's happy. And that's what it means to be a genuine musician. Quite hard to come across at that level of mainstream success.

    Someone told me I have a rubbish taste in music and this really offended me as I was never allowed to listen to music as a child so have only really had the chance to listen to music of my own choice recently as I've become independent of my parents.

    Anyway, I love:

    The Smiths
    The Beatles
    Prince
    Marina and the Diamonds
    Florence and the Machine
    Sky Ferreira
    The Script
    Ed Sheeren
    Phoenix
    Björk (loveee her)
    The XX
    Natalie Williams
    And muse

    And, ya know, if I'm in the mood to dance then I like a bit of commercial stuff:
    Nicki Minaj
    Gaga
    Ke$ha
    Little mix (that's apparently extremely terrible)
    Kerli
    Britney

    I love my music as i feel it really appeals to all my emotions and gets me thinking a lot .. I tend to like quite melancholic music ... And I suppose all that matters Is that I like my music, but would you say my music is bad?

    you like Prince.
    That is good taste

    Can't really tell you, but one thing's for sure - your self-esteem and need for approval from others sure is.

    I mean, that 'look at me, I listen to commercial stuff too when I'm dancing' paragraph is really quite pathetic.
    Agreed. I don't care what people think of my taste in music. I generally either get looks of or :eek:

    Yeah 'lol' I am. I'm not even sure your counter point was effective in making any statement whatsoever. I still don't get what you were trying to say.

    but no your music taste cannot be "bad"
    it's your opinion on music
    people can disagree with it, but there actually isn't such thing as "bad" music taste. Or any taste for that matter.
    It's just a difference in opinion.
