    I'm not saying that people shouldn't listen to German Rap, just that I don't feel any need to. There's a lot of music out there in the world which is leaping to the top of the list before that.

    Take @elanglois choice of Joe Satriani above. I can admire his insane proficiency, I can manage to sit through a couple of songs, I can support him in his lawsuit against the evil thieving Coldplay bastards, but it's not something I'll generally choose to listen to for more than a beer. Or two beers, some of those tracks are quite long.

    I know many Germans who don't listen to German rap.

    Don't assume that your preferences extend to the general population, that's how certain political regimes get started.

    I expect you to listen to whatever makes you happy, even if you're obviously wrong and you'll cringe at it 15 years from now.

    Just don't expect the rest of us to listen to it, I think that's pretty much by design.

    Wait, what?

    I get it, I was 15 once. You have raging hormones and you think that you can fix all of the problems in the world. That's as it should be, it's how we progress as a society.

    I've barely listened to any new music in the last 20 years, but I can still admit that some of what I liked when I was a kid was objectively bollocks. That being said, most of it was awesome and will remain so until the end of recorded history.

    It's called context. You'll understand when you're 16. Maybe 17.

    What was the point of bringing up German Rap music in a thread about perfect form & function of a mobile phone?

    well when you learn to read (Skill unlocked at IQ level 85) u can see that i said ,, I use flush colours and german rappers as background". And dude why are you so butthurt about my taste in music? And you dont have to point out that I am currently 15 years old. Intelligence is not in the Age its in your brain.

    You were the one who pointed out your age, not me.

    You were the one who pointed out that "you listen to German Rap because you're German".

    I have no objections to either of those things, but you seem offended by the fact that there's a reality outside of both of those. This, also, is a natural consequence of being 15 - your view of the world is so constricted that you can't understand the concept that other people like different shit. That's not an attack on you or your choices, it's just the way things are.

    yes i pointed out my age first but only one time.
    And you are basically a hypocrite because you say ,, you cant understand the concept of other people liking other stuff" then why are you criticising my taste in music? And I bet i have a wider perspective than you, while being 15. Im not offended i just dont understand the points that you are trying to make.

    You don't like it when people (allegedly) criticise others taste in music?

    Remind me again, who's the hypocrite?

    You should stop hearing things which nobody ever said. My personal preferences in music - or anything else - don't invalidate your choices. Not every comment which - even slightly - contradicts your worldview is a personal attack on your deep seated beliefs.

    I actually don't listen much to Satriani these days. Mostly Linkin Park, Evanessence, and Faith No More. Satriani is still one of the best guitar players ever, but he's not quite known for "catchy tunes".

    I'm really big on Alexandr Misko right now. He does some amazing things on a single guitar. One of the best percussive acoustic players I've ever heard. He plays 3 or 4 different parts at once and sometimes retunes while he plays. He plays a wide variety of styles, too. I bought both his albums.

    Check out his version of George Michael's Careless Whisper.

    oh so you didnt say that I'm wrong by listening to rap and that I'll cringe at it 15 years from now? And you dont have to treat me like a feminist, I dont get angry at every comment. I'm just asking why is my worldview & taste in music such a big deal for you? I mean you are probably much older than me so why dont you use that time to do something else, like i dunno doing Older People tasks i guess?

    Since we're indulging in rampant stereotypes, shouldn't you be doing young people tasks like sulking in your room complaining about how the world is unfair?

    Oh right, carry on.
