The music you listen to says something about yourself to anyone within earshot, so you don’t want it to say you suck. That’s why I’m here to help you curate the selection of music you keep on your iPod with this list of albums a man should be embarrassed to own.
Now, I’m not some music fascist, trying to tell you what to like and what not to like. We’ve all got our guilty pleasures, and if some of yours happen to be on this list, that’s fine. It’s just that, if you let strangers know you like it, they’re probably going to think your lame. For example, the other day I was on a bus, and there was this guy blasting Beyoncé on his ear buds so loud that the whole bus could hear every word to “Single Ladies.” And sure enough, I thought he was pretty lame.
Anyway, I’m not saying you need to taylor your likes and dislikes to the whims of the masses. I’m just saying that first impressions matter, and you don’t want someone’s first impression of you to be “this guy likes Daughtry.” You know?
So here’s a list of albums to keep off your iPod so people can’t figure out your dark secrets.
What kinds of albums am I talking about? See for yourself.
