Dang, that was a really good animation. Yeah, guilty pleasure on music hit home for me, and your message (or theme? or moral? whatever they call it) was actually something I needed to hear. I was expecting the guy's friend to be the judgemental "cool dude" type, but luckily it turned out not to be the case, which was great!
Also you chose a neat, wide-range of music that he flipped through quickly, which was well-done. Thanks for putting them in the credits too.
Also, why did his friend have a hat with the communist Soviet symbol on there? I thought it was weird (I hope he's not a communist :P) but I guess it's either a reference I don't get (there are a lot of those...) or something random.
