New to you. Once you've heard it, it's not new.

It's not a hard concept to grasp, dumbasses.

It literally couldn't be any clearer. You guys are too dumb to live.

What percentage of those hours do you listen to music that you haven't heard before?

To be fair, it's really just Dev that doesn't get it, Jorge

If it's only the first time you ever hear a song, then it's almost impossible to listen to a lot of new music. If you ever hear it a second time, it's old news.

This is ridiculously, ridiculously wrong. Do you know how much music there is out there?

Reading comprehension on RM really seems to have plummeted lately.

I prefer yellow, but this looks good too.

Thanks to the nearly 70 non-weirdos who aren't too nervous or insecure to fill out a harmless anonymous survey

Speaking of harmless, this thing isn't truly representative unless you get him to participate.

I try to listen to newly released music more than almost anyone I know IRL. Each year this amounts to about a 1000 extra songs on my pc from that year. In time though, the first time I listened to those songs, and the first time I randomly heard some hit song on the radio or in a club, is just a fairly brief amount of time. Most people I know just hear some radio, go to a few concerts and maybe buy a release or two from their favorite musicians.

Besides, half the joy of music, is hearing a song over again. Usually the first time you hear something, you don't even know if you like it.

That's nice, but the question is pretty simple: what percentage of your music-listening time to do you spend exploring new things (where "new" doesn't necessarily mean something that just came out, but something you yourself had never heard before)?

Just trying to gauge how many RMers still feel the itch to try new stuff out vs. how many are comfortable / set in their ways. It's pretty straightforward, I feel.

I could've saved you some time, Jorge. We're a Pearl Jam board filled with white, heterosexual males that don't like Pearl Jam.

He should add the question: "Will you ever be happy again?"

It's a good census. Look forward to the results.
