DO YOU FEEL PRESSURED INTO LISTENING TO CERTAIN TYPES OF MUSIC?

Our scene was founded on the morals of acceptance and non-judgement. From day one, this community has served to give a home to the homeless, a voice to the voiceless and hope to the hopeless. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean everyone always abides by those principles. In a world where social status is everything, music should serve as an avenue of escape, not another way for people to find a way to "fit in." We all have our musical guilty pleasures; those bands we listen to only behind closed doors. But is that necessarily good, or even healthy? Are we listening to the music we do because we genuinely, wholeheartedly appreciate it? Or is it because if we listen to something else, we're going to feel the discernment of those around us?
