I'll keep an eye out for them. I don't do a whole lot of concerts though.

what would be some fall out boy songs to listen to? Youtube is naturally going to give me the radio singles that I don't like.

I can't really describe what I like in terms of Genre. There is a lot of bad music in genres I typically like and some good music in genres I typically don't like.

I'm a huge sucker for catchy lyrics and a female vocalist too. get me drunk and put on some adele or t swift and you are in for quite a scene

right now i'm in a phase where it seems i only have patience to listen to A) three minutes of pop perfection or B) an hour of avant-jazz blowing. i loose interest with everything in between. no middle ground.

Hmm..

Here are a few I like:

"The Patron Saint of Liars and Fakes"
"Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of Things to Do Today"
"XO"
"Of All the Gin Joints in All the World"
"Thriller"
"The Take Over, the Breaks Over"
"Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes"
"What a Catch, Donnie"

I just picked 2 songs off of each album that weren't singles. It gives you a better idea of how they sound.

If you want catchy and female (plus attractive), I'd say check out Paramore. At least from the pop rock scene ( I guess that's what I'd label it as).

I've actually been to a Paramore and No Doubt concert with my wife It was full of teen twilight fans because apparently they did a song for that. but really, how can you not enjoy a wife-endorsed event where you get to watch haley williams? If I remember correctly, I saw the other band members doing flips and **** off in the peripherals

Oh haha. Yeah Paramore is one of my wife's favorite bands. I wasn't aware of the Twilight connection.

I mostly listen to old country these days so I'd prescribe you some Tammy Wynette or Dolly Parton.

country is probably the genre where I've found the least examples for my "good music in a genre I don't like" theory there are a few really good ones. Typically they are sort of countryish hybrids. I love good country-rock hybrids and some solid female country ballads. I don't like twang though. Its hard to really describe what I will and won't like. Random song I like: Picture by Kid Rock and Sharyll Crow. If you described the song to me I'd probably expect to hate it. Ok, I got it. Its not twangy. really, I don't mind country but I hate hickish country twang

my man. if i was going to group my listening by genre, it would go as follows: 1) avant-garde/free jazz; 2) indie; 3) country (and related country/folk rock).

Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Kris Kristofferson.

Now you're talking my language. I was a late bloomer to country and resisted it fiercely for years. The joke was on me in the end and by the time i was in my twenties it was the perfect complement to some of the more obscure music in my life. Heavy metal will probably always be #1 in my heart though. A live Judas Priest show puts the others to shame.

Don't hipsters love Mumford and Sons? I know all of my old Starbucks co-workers won't shut up about them.

And you damn know I won't drink that piss water.

I have no idea. Hipsters probably used to listen to Mumford and Sons before they got popular. I get the feeling you would stop liking a band if they got too popular

I feel like hipsters don't like starbucks either. its too mainstream.

Hipsters used to drink Starbucks. Now there are plenty of local hip coffee shops. I should say if hipsters do exist, I probably fit at least 50% of the stereotypes.

don't knock PBR. ****in' hipsters appropriating my immigrant father's beer of choice when he built the nuclear power plants that run this country in the 70s.

some essential hipster reading: What Was the Hipster?

Quote:
The truth was that there was no culture worth speaking of, and the people called hipsters just happened to be young and, more often than not, funny-looking.
Quote:
Like “doochebag,” “hipster” was a name that no one could apply to oneself. But the opportunity to call someone else a “doochebag”: that offered the would-be hipster a means of self-identification by a name one could say, looking outward. In the doochebag, the hipster had found its Other.

by the way, I have no idea if hipsters even exist. I have one friend who seems to hate any popular music. Talks about how they used to be good before they got big and stuff. I know some of that is bands legitimately changing their style causing them to get popular. But its fun to tease anyway.
