    This.

    I consider The Ramones a joke and other 70s noisy punk like The Dead Boys, Sex Pistols.

    I'm not the target audience as well.
    I would see a great prog rock band.

    Let's just say if that is true, I never got the joke.

    However many other folks did, and who am I to argue about how and where people get musical inspiration from?

    To me this is pretty close minded. I’m glad I can appreciate both.

    Yeah, I can honestly say I hate most rap and hip hop out there today, but that's not to say I haven't found some that somehow served a purpose, such as what the Red Hot Chili Peppers have done.

    So, for me, I'm glad I can have an open mind about any music genre even if it's not something I personally enjoy listening to a great deal myself...

    Most people are closed minded. It's their right to remain so.

    Plus, I love the Matisse story about in his later life, when he was making great art with a minimum of brush strokes, and a lady asked him condescendingly "How long did it take you to paint that?",
    and his answer was something like "40 years".

    Not to do the work itself - to learn how to do so much with so little.

    Thanks for your post.

    Frankly, that would be open minded to be able to both like punk and prog.

    Is there such a thing as progressive punk?

    If not, there should be.

    How many early Who tunes do you play?

    If attitude is a big part of punk, then the Who are one of the grandfathers of all punks.

    I’m not trying to take your rights away. Lol just saying I got over that phase in my early 20s. The whole this genre sucks phase.

    Closed minded implies not giving something a chance. I've listened to Ramones and Dead Boys albums in their entirety. I've listened to many things.

    I don't buy the premise there is no such thing as bad music and that all music is good.

    How many here own the Yoko Ono box set?
    If not, why?

    As long as you gave it an honest chance. There are a lot of people who don’t. Of course there is music I don’t like.

    Nor I.

    As a matter of fact, I am a card-carrying musical elitist, and definitely believe some music is "better" than other music.

    I meant closed minded in the sense of once you decide you don't like something, nobody can make you change your mind. Even mother gave up trying to make you eat stuff you didn't like after you vomited on her enough.

    There are only two kinds of music, the kind I like and the kind I don't.

    Louis Armstrong said there were 2 kinds of music - good music and the other kind.

    Quite what I was meaning to know in my opening post.

    Probably the best answer so far.

    I like any music that's "interesting", and by that I mean NOT "nauseatingly redundant". Every musical style has their own particular "best of the best" though and that's what I look for.

    So I may listen to Country one day, Classical the next, throw in some Disco now and then, Heavy Metal, a small dose of Polka, some essential Jazz, a little New Wave, of course Punk (as it applies here) and maybe (and this is a BIG maybe) some rap and or hip hop.

    Perhaps I get bored easily, but I just can't listen to the same thing over and over and over and...

    If you don’t appreciate Yoko Ono as a great singer, you’re closed minded....right?
