Things that make music good according to Elph:

Feminism {x}
Not being or looking like bros or having bros for fans {x}
Not being liked by dads {x}
Riffs { }

It's not about the fan base, the fan base is a reflection of what the band is

Why would I dislike a band for its fan base? Why even think that?

I dislike the dumb band for being dumb, not for attracting dumb people

See here's the thing buddy, your preoccupation with the "status" of a band (what type of people you perceive as enjoying their music, how popular/underground they were etc etc) is causing you to put the blinders up to stuff that you either haven't listened to or have listened to through a lens of prejudice because of ideas you already had about the type of people who like that band/artist. This is a really common behaviour in young people, because when you're 14 and trying to work out who you are music speaks to you heavily (because it's aimed at you) and comes with fashion attached, making it easy and attractive to draw a correlation between who you are and what you listen to.

But you're not 14, Elph. You're 20 or something. Time to learn to just enjoy shit for what it is and stop worrying about your personal brand.

I do care about how a band presents itself. I consider it as part of the art, it being a performance art. Again, Rock music is about a lot more than just a guitar riff.

However I do not care how a bands fan base dresses

I don't know what 98% of the artists I listen to look like. You know how much that detracts from my enjoyment of their music?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's par for the course for electronic music right?

It's not uncommon, but I'd venture that electronic music accounts for ~25% of all the music i listen to

Image matters in the same way lyrics matter

It's like when you watch a movie you also get sound

If image matters to your enjoyment of a band you are every bit as guilty of being into fashion rather than art as I've accused you of being.
