30 day challenge - Number 16 - Music

I'm not that into music as a rule. There's songs I like and I'll listen to them for years. A couple of bands I followed (Tool, White Zombie, Monster Magnet, NIN) but not really as a 'fan' per se.

Mainstream, popular music? Whatever the opposite of a 'fan' is, I guess I'm that. While an appreciation for stuff I used to hate filters through after a decade or so, for the most part I hate vapid pop music and have a particular hate-on for what they call 'R&B'. The only rap I like is very old stuff or stuff that's a parody (Nerdcore, chap-hop etc).

Where do you even go to find new music these days? MTV? They don't show music any more. Top of the Pops? Doesn't exist any more. Radio? Commercials and the few crappy pop tunes that climb an increasingly irrelevant singles chart.
