How To Decide If You're Cool

Well, that might be a little misleading.......... This piece suggests ways you might decide whether or not you're uncool based on your musical taste.

"...if lots of listeners really don’t want people to know that they are listening to a particular artist, then that artist is probably not too cool. Luckily, there’s an interesting source for just this kind of data. Recently, the researchers at published a list of the ‘most unwanted scrobbles‘. This is a list of tracks that were most frequently deleted by the community..."

Firstly, let's get the obvious out of the way. "Scrobbles." Haha. What a ridiculous word.

Personally, I think this is a load of horse shit. If you like something, just like it. When you're trying to hide the songs you listen to from other people who probably could care less anyway, you've got bigger problems than learning how to be cool. You need to find The Greatest Love of All.

Not that you'll find that song on my iPod or anything. No way! What are you, crazy?
