If you were judged just by the music you listen to...

If someone just looked at your music library and knew NOTHING about you, your gender, age, etc., who would they think you are?

Since most of the artists/music I listen to is older than I am, a person looking at my music would probably assume that I'm in my 40s (as opposed to 20s) with a love of classic rock, and little to no pop, country, or rap (with the exception of 80s pop, which harkens back to the age thing).

So, what would people assume about you based on your music?

They'd think "who/what the fuck is this kid"?

I have no particular taste, and enjoy dozens of genres. They probably wouldn't think I'm 17, however.

Well, if we're talking about broad assumptions they'd probably guess I'm a female since female artists take up more than a quarter of my collection. And though I've got a wide mix of decades and genres, it's mostly dominated by the 90s and 00s releases, so the guess would be a person in their 20s or 30s (I'm 27). I doubt they'd pick up a Russian background from my music, since it's 98% English-speaking bands/artists.

They'd probably think I had a major thing for The Church and Steve Kilbey. Why they would think that I have no earthly idea.

Haha. Mine would prob be the same.

Rock, country, pop, glam rock, dance, new wave...you name it I have it.

They prob wouldn't guess that im 15 tho. Most of my music is from 70's/80's.

Other than U2 and Floyd pretty much every other cd I own comes from one of the Heavy Metal genre's.

They'd probably call me a 'goth'...

I have a lot of shoegaze, early swing and jazz, funk and soul, a near complete compilation of Husker Du, episodes of the Jack Benny radio show and Gwen Stefani's "4 in the Morning".

I'm not sure what kind of monster I'd be envisioned as.

well lets see.....

I can go from Listening to Porcupine Tree then straight to....say Kelly Clarkson.

Then from say Muse to Sarah Blasko and then back to Pink Floyd then off to some Xtina back to U2 or Green Day, or The White Stripes

They'd just call me some weird gay Rock n Roll Indie kid.

And Well...I'm not gay......

They'd most definitely know that I'm a chick from my guilty pleasure cds/songs. Aside from that, I honestly have no clue what people would think of me, other than I have excellent taste.

They'd probably think that I'm cooler than I actually am...but then they'd come across some stuff that would make them say, "Oh, nevermind."
"Knight in shining Zubaz."

If someone I didn't know was just given my iPod without seeing me, I don't know if they'd be able to tell anything about me. I love almost every genre from rock to rap to country to blues and everything in between. Metal and emo/screamo are the only things you'll never catch me listening to. Most of the music I listen to is older. I love everything from the 50s on up. I do like some artists that are popular now but most of my favorite music is older or is by artists that have been around for a long time but are still making music a la my ultimate favorites U2 and Madonna.
