My best friend and her cousin now listen to The Megas. Who have you spread your favorite bands too?

I got several friends into Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree and Boards of Canada.

Since then, my attempts have spreading (including playing black metal in my school newsroom) have failed abysmally.

I got most of the dwellers in the Hip Hop Thread into Aesop Rock, if memory serves.

I unintentionally got my little brother into a shitload of bands/artists that I'm a fan of (though, for some reason, he got into Godflesh before I did); he's now got a very similar taste in music to me, though I'm not particularly fond of Woods of Ypres like he is.

I tried to get this kid at my school to listen to The Mars Volta and Explosions In The Sky, but he's yet to listen to the songs I recommended.

I also successfully made Saeglopur and Zudak into Aesop Rock fans, and they went on to listen to Madvillain due to this.

I can entirely live with half the forum being Aesop Rock fans.

Dammit, now I need to go listen to him

Asphidel sort of listens to System of a Down because of me.

One of my best friends now thinks Best Boast and the Vaselines are awesome. She's right.

My ex and I did a band trade - she got me into Type O Negative, I got her onto Killing Joke.
Aww, did I hurt your widdle fee-fees?

On an overnight stay when I was looking at a college (I ended up going there), I hooked my host's roommate onto Cain's Offering.
There are snakes in the grass, so we'd better go hunting!
Lordnecronus, the exact same thing happened with me and my little sister. I got her into bands like Within Temptation, Sirenia, Theatre of Tragedy, etc. Now when I go back to visit, my C Ds mysteriously go missing a lot.

She still thinks some of my favourites (like Benedictum) are "tuneless screaming" though.
What's the point in giving up when you know you'll never stop anyway?

I've managed to spread the good news of Queen, Rush, Megadeth, and Jonathan Coulton to the musically illiterate people of my school.

I take pleasure in having proliferated The Arrogant Worms throughout an entire school that I never once set foot in.

I've also hooked assorted kith and kin on Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Abney Park, Tom Lehrer, and Diablo Swing Orchestra.

Oddly, the only time I can think of this happening on a mass level is back when I got all my high school friends listening to Wesley Willis.

In general, I got into "Alternative Rock" in 1994, my sister kinda followed on her own a little bit later, and for a while we had a fairly big effect on each other's tastes just by borrowing cd's. I guess this still happens to a lesser extent now that we're friends on last.fm.

The girl I'm kinda going out with now has pretty mainstream music tastes, including country, so when I ended up making her a mix CD I opted to mainly use songs by folk or country-tinged (or just plain poppy) indie rock bands. She said she really liked it, and I guess that wasn't just talk, because later she'd put up "Home" by Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros and "I'll Bring The Sun" by Jason Collett on her facebook.

I got one of my closest friends into the nerdcore sub-genre by showing her Generic Crunk Rap and Internet Relationships both by MC Lars.
We're going to spread this shit like Nutella.

Erm... I guess I've spread some of my taste in music to Zudak and Lucky, and possibly some other people round here? But that's been reciprocated in at least equal quantity.

I did manage to introduce my housemate to both The Mountain Goats and Sufjan Stevens though, and I managed to make a whole room full of people at a house party interested in School Of Seven Bells.

I got Furiko and Lucky into Miyavi, and my best friend has a Lolita23Q song play every time he gets a texttongue
My hetero life mate Xilli X borrows his taste almost exclusively from me. I introduced him to pretty much all of his favorite bands.

As for my girlfriend: nothing. Diddly dick. It's difficult even finding music we can both tolerate (mainly Muse, VNV Nation, and Susumu Hirasawa).

No one. Most of my friends think my taste in music is horrible. And they're probably right. tongue
