This thread disappoints. I definitely have to tailor it for my audience. If I was around hipsters I'd probably say Dream Theater, around law school students Led Zeppelin, and around potential mates The Wiggles. Es bueno?

P.S. I can't stand watching sports - it's an opiate for the masses, similar to religion and politics/voting.

No, no this thread is not going down this road.

Let's talk about how Dave Matthews Band needs to be mentioned ITT.

The Ivy Walls and The Nightwatchman are pretty damn fantastic.

And if you want to seem classy as fuck and get brownie points from the film-lovers crowd, the soundtracks to The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (amurrican version) are amazing.

You should probably just say Pink Floyd since that is the only band you seem to have listened to enough to have a short conversation about.

Or Neutral Milk Hotel, they're pretty awesome.

OR, as TLS wisdom often tells us, do some of your own damn research and visit Pitchfork, AVClub, Pandora (do people still use Pandora?), Last FM, or maybe just turn on the radio for a second.

Without trying to name a shit ton of music no one has ever heard of ever get super hip TCR for OP's question is the Beatles.

Works well for most demographics and is not "embarrassing."

As awesome as Neutral Milk Hotel is if you said that to 90% of the population you would get blank stares. Lawyers are not likely to be more musically knowledgeable than the rest of the population.

Disregard my last post. I didn't realize OP also stated that watching sports is the opiate of the masses. Given this new information, I would say that you should just carry around an index card that says, "I'm socially inept, please don't try to talk to me" and silently present it to anyone friendly/foolish enough to try to ensnare you in a conversation. Problem solved.

does not watching sports and not liking shitty popular music make one socially inept?


No, but not listening to music at all and listing watching sports as an opiate for the masses (pretty hyperbolic, don't you think) smacks of social ineptness. Additionally, using TLS to figure out how to answer such a benign question as "who is your favorite band" doesnt really speak well to a person who can easily navigate most social situations.

Surely you are able to see the difference between what I stated and how you interpretted it, right?
