What Your Music Taste Says About You

In our current world, new songs arise every single day that fill listeners’ ears with different types of genres and sounds. Whether you’re still listening to Katy Perry’s 2013 album Prison or jamming out to Jimmy Hendrix’s 1969 Woodstock performance, the music that you listen to says a lot about you.


If you’re still listening to Pitbull, Party Rock, or Flo Rida, you’re either a young adult with fond memories of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs or you’re a 7th grader discovering the era of Pop you missed. Either way, these artists have produced some classic hits that definitely hold core memories.



If you listen to Adele, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, or Ariana Grande, you deserve the award for being the best shower singer. I can totally imagine you singing along in the bathtub holding the shampoo as a microphone to some of these artists’ songs. Whatever you do, please do not take your singing outside of the shower, and make sure your windows are closed so the neighbors don't hear you. Trust me - you are doing everyone a favor.



Listeners of rap can be placed into two categories. One of them includes old-school and chill rap, such as Drake, Kanye West, and The Notorious B.I.G. You have a great music taste that makes you a happy and confident person, and you’re more likely to help an old lady cross the road than the other category.



This other category consists of drill, 21 Savage, and a lot of cursing. If you don't know what some of those terms mean, it's for the best since these types of people are menaces to all. They love blasting their music at red lights with the windows down (just so everyone knows they’re cool). They try to hit the top speed on their car every time they’re on the pipeline, and are probably more likely to cut off an old lady crossing the road than help her. Also, if you can't hear their music at the stoplights, it’s probably because their engines are roaring at decibels that are higher than loudspeakers at sports games.



The next group is those that listen to strictly country music. Your ideal Friday night consists of fried chicken, cold beer, and a pair of jeans that are a little too tight. If you think you know country music because you understood the allusion in the last line of this article, anyone who actually knows country can get a free ticket to hitting you in the head with a banjo, putting a cowboy hat on your head, and teaching you what real country is all about.



Those that listen to heavy metal are easy to classify. They are the type of students that chew on pencil erasers if they’re not otherwise spending their time trying to jailbreak their iPhones. Their ideal weather consists of thunderstorms, and they definitely don't pick up their dogs' poop in their neighbors' lawns. They also enjoy the sound of nails on a chalkboard (which I'm sure you just winced at) and probably have countless wired earbuds that are scattered around their house.



The final genre of music is anything classical, such as Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, or Chopin. There is no question that these music listeners own a crusty small white dog and will always drink anything with their pinky up whether it be wine or a protein shake. This group of people either own an all-White Rolls Royce Phantom or live in a nursing home.



Each genre of music has its own unique group. Nevertheless, each group contributes to society in various ways, whether it be helping an old lady cross the street or bankrolling the wired earbuds industry. What group are you a part of?
