    Angry 'Garage Band' Prejudice

    The other day I was talking to someone about bands. Well after awhile I mentioned that I am in a band. Then he told me that my band sucks. I told him that he had'nt even heard my band's music. Then I asked him why and he said "Because its not famous. Its a 'Garage Band'." His opinion was already decided that my band sucks because we're not famous. What is everybody's opinion on this matter?

    To make it simple, that person is a complete moron.
    You should try testing this person. Let him hear different songs, some made by more established artists (preferably the ones he doesn't know) and some made by 'garage bands'.
    Ask him to separate the two kinds and if he can't do it you have proof that he was just talking out of his ignorant ass.

    I'm thinking that this is another imaginary-persecution incident related to my closing a previous thread announcing the devistating break-up of your 1 year-old band by saying something to the effect of:

    "This is personal and belongs in your journal. I'm pretty sure that most people here don't know anything about your garage band or particularly care that it's breaking up."

    I dont really care if you closed that thread. Im just saying that people say things suck BEFORE they even heard the music.

    It's not difficult to see that it doesn't make sense to dislike music you have never heard right?

    But that's not what this thread is about... right?

    Hmm..well, perhaps what they are saying is more along the line of thinking that the local high school band makes terrible music because the Nobuo Uematsus and Jeremy Soules of the world make them look like rubble. I don't defend that view point, but I can see the logic. What seems fairly ignorant is that they would judge the music without even hearing it.
