The title really says it all. I ask this because of that whole "clique" thing. It seems to be continuously becoming more of a musical thing. I don't hang around anyone really that likes my kind of music alot. Also, have you ever ended a friendship based on someone getting into a new style of music? I kinda did this once, but only because he kept trying to force the music on me.

How about you?

It depends. My best friend is a fan of country and I hate country. But if someone said they loved Paramore...

I choose my friends based on their ability to form a coherent sentence. Most people fail.

They won't get out of my head. It's not a willing enjoyment. And certainly atypical of what I'd normally listen to.

Nope. I hate most of my friends music, but we do share some of the same likings. Some have even turned me onto bands.

I am a man who listens to a lot of really old stuff primarily surrounded by people who like Screamo. I kinda severed my contact with them, though. They were all boozed-up druggies with closed minds.

No, most of my friends listen to reggeaton and all that crap. I love my friends, but we're extremely different, maybe that's what keeps the friendship interesting

No, I don't base friends around musical interests. On the other hand, if I someone does like similar music too me the odds of us 'bonding' are of course higher. I am a music fanatic, if anything.

420 is NOT the code for marijuana use. It comes from some teenagers in northern california that use to go smoke weed at 4:20 at a statue of Alexander Fleming, so the High School just started saying "4:20 at Fleming" to mean smoke weed.

Oh there's nothing wrong with weed. But that's a conversation for another topic

But everyone on the border of my social circle are people who judge based on musical taste and dress style.

If I happen to share a love for certain music that others also do, they often win points for it, cos I love sharing good music with other people. If there are people who passionately hate certain music styles it bothers me. I dont like hating. There are styles of music that bother me, but if you like those styles thats not going to stop you being my friend at all!

Music tastes can show a person's ideals and filters on reality, but its only part of the picture. Haha thats my conclusion!

I have a lot of friends that has a different taste in music, but I do find myself having an easier time becoming friends with people who enjoy the same music.

Nope, I don't really like my friends music tastes but I wouldn't respect them any less for it. They don't like my music either so it goes both ways.

There is good psychological evidence that comes from the University of Texas at Austin that there is a significant correlation between music taste and personality type. Thus, it's quite likely that you choose your friends based on similar personality types and that correlates with what music you listen to. It's a very useful tool for judging people.

No not at all, but seeing as how kids that end up being friends are usually alike in a lot of ways, many of my friends have similar tastes to me. However, there are a few of my good friends that aren't like me at all when it comes to music. Kids that like techno, hardcore rock, etc..I seem to be more mellow than them.

From reading the title of this thread, the idea of anyone who would choose friends based on their musical preferences is very stupid... In my opinion.

You guys may think I'm an absolute cunt now, but be glad this isn't a music forum. I try and put my friends taste in music out of mind. I have 2 that have fantastic taste though.

No, that would make for some boring conversation. At the same time, I don't enjoy self righteous music fans either. You know the type, ones who wallow in the fact they know of some obscure band/artist/album/music genre. Ok, I get it, you spent a week on music message boards and discovered an album that changed your life. Can I eat my sandwich now?
