Become a Music Geek Using Four Simple Steps
|Beware of getting this hardcore too quickly.|
It is also important for music nerds to like bands who never became household names. (Don't be intimidated. If we mention such a name around you, it's probably because we think it's something you'll like). Trust us, the same way I trusted the Northridge Fashion Center goths back in the day.
|Rejoice! You made it!|
It may take a few years, but one day, you will wake up and realize that you don't have to fake it anymore. You now have a vast arsenal of music-related trivia at your disposal. You're able to carry on an hour-long conversation about obscure B-sides. You can write dissertations on how bands that never blew up inspired extremely famous groups that came later. Your friends gawk when they see that you own vinyl usually only found on record store walls.
Your poseur skin has officially molted. You are a music geek. Congratulations, and welcome to the club.
