I don't judge people on their musical preference. I judge people on how they act when talking about music. If you loved those bands, but weren't psycho about it or thought your tastes were superior, I would be totally cool with you. I have a close friend who loves those bands, but she's respectful about it, so we're fine. If I met someone who loved the same music that I do, and they acted superior, I wouldn't like them.
People have judged me, yes. I have very eclectic tastes, and people seem to think I just pick a random group and say I like them to fit in. They don't seem to realize that I don't care what other people think about me. I do, to some degree, but not when it comes to music. Music is my main passion, it's my therapy, and my heart sinks when I can't find my music. So, yeah, I get really annoyed when people challenge my musical preference. Take time to get to know someone before you judge them, it should always be that way. No matter what it is, music, clothes, weight, race. It should never matter. I have all kinds of friends, it's insane. Goths, skaters, potheads, preps, clowns...it doesn't matter, as long as there's a mutual respect for who the other person is.
Sorry, I went into a rant. I said more than I wanted to, but it makes my blood boil. Haha. Ryan was gonna say something similar, but he's too lazy.
