    my little sister found this guy on youtube:



    Everyone is saying how good he is, but I fail to see it.

    Do i have a bad taste in music, or is he mediocre?

    You're basing your whole music taste on this one guy?

    If it makes you feel any better, I'm not a fan..

    Not just on this, but all my friends say i have a bad taste. Here's five artists (randomly selected) from my ipod:

    basement jaxxx
    College & Electric Youth
    Kavinsky
    The Clash
    Calvin Harris

    Errm yeah I've genuinely only ever heard of Calvin Harris (who I like).. But then I guess when it comes to my music taste, I'm pretty mainstream.

    But people can say that in their opinion you have bad music taste. But it's not fact. Why should you care? I've got Justin Beiber on my iPod and I'm a straight guy. I really couldn't care what people thought of my ​music taste.

    i'm not alone! he isn't bad, it's just it's a boring song and the piano sounds out of place, etc. and there's loads of boys who can play acoustic guitar and strum out (pardon the pun) mediocre music.

    No, it's a bad song and the boy sounds average. Just another youtube teenager with a guitar Sick of seeing these 'hipsters' appear across the net.

    BTW you're gorgeous, katie

    10-a-penny is like "a-dime-a-dozen". In other words there are so many of this guy out there, it's boring, unimaginative material that's been done to death - you could get 10 of him and it'd only cost you a penny.

    also "bollox" should really have the x replaces with "cks", but I was being naughty and avoiding TSR's swear filter, which I will probably get warning points for doing. It means "testicles".

    Oh I know now, thanks! I agree

    I have heard "boll*cks" now you say, it's a quintessentially British term for "ballsack" as the Americans say.
