Why does almost everyone on this forum use Last.fm? When I tried to use it a couple years ago, it was terrible.

It's nice to be able to keep track of what you've listened to and to see what your friends listen to.

It's not useful or anything, just fun.

Would be fun to have one. But no one here knows it. I also listen to some really terrible music according to many people.

Yeah pretty much this.
It's also a great place to find new bands. For example if you listen to a certain band they'll give you recommendations based on that specific artist and whatnot.

I use something better than last.fm. It's called the original CDs.

After tracking over 40k songs, mine decided to stop working. I have not used it since. I totally forget it exists.

I tried it a long time ago. It seemed to be some broken website for streaming music. The thing is, I would want it to stream, say, rock and it would stream pop or whatever the fuck it felt like.

stupid website.

Last.fm is about finding new music based on music you already find enjoyable. It determines this by keeping a record of what you listen to and finding artists with many similar tags to ones you listen to often. Yes, there's a radio, but that isn't the focus of it.

Also, if you were using a tag as unspecific as "rock" and expecting to get a consistent sound between all of the artists it played, you're truly an idiot.

you're a fucking moron for a few reasons, let me explain them to you

first of all, last.fm is about scrobbling albums/songs that YOU listen to from YOUR computer and then the site recommends you new artists that you may like based off of that. it is not about streaming music. listening to the last.fm radio is stupid and you shouldn't even do it anyway. and secondly, you're a fucking monogoloid for thinking that you will get specific music from a tag like "rock", you fucking mongoloid.

fuck you. you're stupid. get the fuck out.

No, if I'm using a tag like "rock" and I'm getting a different genre (I'm not expecting a consistent sound, I'm expecting something of the same genre) then the site is broken. If I'm expecting rock, and I'm getting Justin Bieber, that's not rock, now is it you moron?

Also, I'm willing to try the site again, seeing as it was new when I last used it. But I still see it as pointless. If I want to discover new music, I'll do it the old fashioned way: by actually getting involved in the music community.

How the fuck does that even work? How do you get "involved in the music community" any better than last fm?

I dunno, maybe a little something called human interaction. Believe it or not, some people like doing that.

I don't think you understand how genre tags work. If an artist or song uses any sort of rock influenced sound or structure in their music, they're bound to have "rock" somewhere in their list of tags. And considering "rock" is such a broad term, you're bound to get quite a variety of genres, yes, even that dreaded pop music.

Last.fm is part of the "music community", it allows you to share your listening habits and talk to others about what you've been listening to. That's the whole point of the friend feature. I suggest you stay away from the site as a whole, though. We don't need you shitting up the place.

I tried using last.fm once. all I remember is not liking it because all it did was give me 30 second clips and then gave me an ad to buy it on itunes.

Because you totally can't do that without the internet.

On the contrary, I think the site needs me. I should make an account and become very active with it. Oh, and explain to me how the friend feature on the site is any better than going to a music store and chilling with the owners for the day. Listening to music in the shop and reveling in the meaning of the music.

Oh wow I'm sure you discover tons of new bands every day by talking to your peers.
Also, how do your peers get to know such bands?

I never said you couldn't. Last.fm is simply a convenient and centralized place to do that sort of thing.

I'm done replying to you. You either have no idea what you're talking about or you're purposely trying to seem like an idiot in order to be some "epic troll" or something.
