K-On has good music? Am I from an alternate universe?
The World Is MineIt's catchy, bright, makes me smile and I will defend to the death my right to say it's good.

DUMBIs it wrong that most of what I know of this series I learned from Fawriel's (now-archived) liveblog? >_>
The World Is Mine^Of course not. It doesn't strike me as something you'd like, anyway.

"keionbu ni yokusou, nyan?"At least I'm proud of the fact that I'm not part of the Lowest Common Denominator who love Moe. I watched K-On for the music.
Hexachordal CombinatorialI started watching it 'cause all the cool kids were doing it.
The thing is, everyone I saw who 'watched it for the music' or at least expected it to be interesting because of music (like Spice and Wolf with economics) was disgusted by it because it lacked that. I only know the opening song rapes my ears.

"keionbu ni yokusou, nyan?"I didn't particularly like Cagayake Girls. I loved the inserts though; I have all the songs they played as inserts in full. Especially Watashi no Koi wa Hotchikisu, a.k.a. My Love is a Stapler.

Hexachordal CombinatorialOh, and Guitar Porn. Sorta like Scenery Porn and Food Porn, but not.
"keionbu ni yokusou, nyan?"Oh yeah, since Kyo Ani made it, naturally, that happens. I hear sales of Fenders went up thanks to K-On.
Hexachordal CombinatorialDoesn't surprise me at all.
DUMBWell, you can't exactly get a good musical impression from reading about somebody reading the manga, so...
The World Is MineWell, they don't sound like that in real life (unless they work in cosplay cafes, or something). It's really only an anime thing.

DUMBDon't I know it. ^Yeah, I know, but still pretty obnoxious. The ED was alright. Still not my thing, though, but hey, I don't listen to much non-incidental music made after 1950 anyway

I watched it for Mio.
"keionbu ni yokusou, nyan?"^^^ Or they're at fan concerts. Seeing Aya Hirano live singing in her Konata voice was something to behold.
I'm glasses.I really liked all the music the band played in K-On!, but I was sorely disappointed that the background music didn't live up to it and was your typical moe-sounding, forgettable whatever. What REALLY would have made the show awesome is if all the music, incidental and performed, was more like the cool indie-rock stuff the Pillows did in FLCL. I have a feeling the show would have a lot less of a Western hatedom if that had happened.
Always, somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember them, you are not alone.
Sawako-sensei is mai waifu.
Hexachordal CombinatorialYeah, I was a tad disappointed by the lack of awesome background music. But I enjoyed the Moe Moe enough that I didn't care.
A J-pop song where the vocalist doesn't sound like she's been huffing helium?!?! Unthinkable!
"keionbu ni yokusou, nyan?"Haruhi has invaded the K-On thread. Let the Fandom Rivalry begin. j/k. God Knows is always a Crowning Music of Awesome.
Oh yeah, whoops. I kinda forgot this was a K-On thread. >_> Still though. I generally don't care for J-pop (because helium) but yeah, that song is awesome. Aya Hirano can sing, all right.
