    What do you do if someone says they like everything?

    I usually just leave them alone. I've always wanted to interrogate if they like grindcore or ambient drone, but I'd probably come off as a music snob and I don't want to bother naming things that they don't know.

    I ask them if they like Tibetan throat singing!

    I just assume they mean they don't really care about music and it is all background noise to them, be it a Top 40 radio or Tibetan throat singing.

  • Ask if they like death/black metal or some really experimental genre.

    If someone can listen to every single song, he must be so indifferent and resistant to disgust, that I cannot help anyway.

    Otherwise, if someone can show the, supposedly quite rare gems of true artwork in almost shitty genres, then I am rather willing to honour his eclecticism.

    They don't trust us, why should we trust them, then?
  • Say "Oh cool" then ask them for their favourite things instead. Then I mentally remove some cool points from them


  • @Randwer Most people who say they like everything say that just because they're young, retarded teens who know nothing about music and tend to just like everything that plays on a friends shuffle at a party or something.

  • I've never done this, but I'd play some Gnaw Their Tongues or Sunn O))) and wait for a response.

  • I've always wanted to ask what their favorite klezmer band is. I tried that once on someone and she didn't evn know what it was. :P

  • "I've never done this, but I'd play some Gnaw Their Tongues or Sunn O))) and wait for a response."
    Likewise.

    I tend to show them Marduk, Napalm Death or War From A Harlots Mouth.

  • I send them a link to a song of a genre thats never even come close to mainstream success in my region, or an instrumental, just to see how they react.

    That, or I'd say "Your nose is getting bigger"

  • I ask them what their favorite Gregorian chant is.

  • I like Tibetan and mongol throat singing....

  • Everything means music from the current top 40.

    But i'm dreaming of showing them some depressive black metal or free jazz. xD

    Ask them what their favorite grindcore band is

  • I stop talking to them about music, because I know there would be nothing worth discussing.

  • I'd have them listen to music that consists purely of machine-like gurgling, humming sounds combined with occasional static.

    Ask them if they like metal and if they say no (which happens 98% of the time), I say "well you don't like everything then" :)

    I ask them, what's their favourite Merzbow album

    They don't trust us, why should we trust them, then?

    yeah, that's exactly what i do too.

    unless they then respond with "i dunno, i'm not that into music", in which case I will then flat out tell them that they have no soul.

    I play them my library and they're like "EW". XD Proved them wrong.

  • Playing Last Days of Humanity or Dead Infection (A Chapter of Accidents) usually proved they didn't.

    Hand on trigger. Phantom face. Don't trust no one. Always on the run.
