Picky eater or stuck on music from their youth.

Someone else mentioned libido mismatch, I don't consider that trivial.

Screw that, I'll listen to Nofx until I die.

But only that? A lot of guys are so nostalgic about music they do not listen to new stuff, taste never grows or evolves at all, that is a bad sign to me.

Not saying abandon old music. Just open minded to new things, not stuck.

Man, with music, you like what you like.

That's like saying your favorite desert is creme brule, and you order it all the time because it's fucking delicious.

However, thanks for sharing.

Must say I have a hard time getting to know new music in this so rapidly changing music world.

I was used to brick and mortar stores and friends having wildly different tastes in music, nowadays I think it's complicated to just duck under the load of influence for commercial music (and other too I guess).

How am I even supposed to find new music I like, and that I can support, without enormous efforts?

Well I miss Google Play Music so much, it was creepy how well that algorithm worked, and it could find me very local concerts. But streaming in general and we have a good community radio station here, that's how I find so much new stuff. What old music do you like? Maybe we should start a Lemmy community to recommend bands, based on bands people like?

Good idea!

I listen mostly to 1980-90 pop rock and french music :-)

Hmm, try Misterwives and Tennis. And now I'm thinking about it, also Lady Gaga, The 1979, Leon Bridges, Beyonce.
