    This score doesn't bother me, but because a band has lots of listeners doesn't necessarily make it "mainstream."

    Perhaps the numbers but it doesnt seem to like my username - others worked ok.

    Aaah. You mistyped that username!


    I think that's because last.fm must have changed something about their username policies. Now they don't allow names starting with a number.

    top-scorer now: cam2009 - ~75 % mainstream

    I got a very similar score (30.1%) and I agree.

    But now it's me and luck

    muhaha! You are 57.39 % Mainstream! - I'm fine with this, I have a pretty diverse selection of music.

    I don't see why people try so hardcore to be non-mainstream. I thought people listen to music because they like it, instead it seems like they want to be some sort of an elitist.

    I've always wondered the same thing, SimplexMu.

    There's a lot of mainstream that flat-out sucks, particularly these scene pop-punk bands like Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance. But this isn't necessarily a good measure of mainstream anyway because there's a lot of bands who have tons of listeners that will never be mainstream.

    You are 21.05 % Mainstream!

  • You are 36.71 % Mainstream!

    Mostly because i have:
    Michael Jackson
    Nirvana
    NIN

    And well in the future i will be listening to The Beatles more, and Radiohead, Muse.

    So i think m meter will be rising up to like 60% :/

    haha anyone who either a) is genuinely bummed about their percentage, b) tries to make up a shit excuse as to why their percentage is higher than they wanted, or c) purposely tries to change around their charts to appear less 'mainstream' are massive tools


    You are 20.00 % Mainstream!


    id better put some wolf parade on loop to regain my sweet indie cred ;(((((

  • 23.86%

    Very neat app but basing it on last.fm stats isn't necessarily going to give a general view of what is "mainstream" given that this site is populated almost entirely trendy scenesters with predictably indie tastes. Interesting to see that my Snoop Dogg listens make me far less mainstream than my Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith and Mogwai.

    I expected it to be way higher actually =D But what is the point actually of this test? It scares the people who don't ever want to be mainstream? If that is so, the test works very good because half of the people with a high percentage doesn't like it xD

  • You are 28.35 % Mainstream!

    Hmm, I thought I wasn't that mainstream at all.

    1 Neutral Milk Hotel 182405
    2 The Mountain Goats 79100
    3 Andrew Bird 66851
    4 Islands 49645
    5 Yeah Yeah Yeahs 255873
    6 Bright Eyes 285217
    7 The Unicorns 104045
    8 The Thermals 31512
    9 Deerhoof 86179
    10 Xiu Xiu 80988
    11 Belle and Sebastian 286447
    12 Final Fantasy 45417
    13 Regina Spektor 122261
    14 The Magnetic Fields 108004
    15 Interpol 306583

    For the record I don't listen to Bright Eyes all that mych anymore, or Belle and Sebastian or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

    And Neutral MIlk Hotel may have lots of listeners, but I don't find it mainstream at all.

    No kidding. Like it really matters what some person over the internet thinks about your taste of music? As long as you enjoy it that's what matters.
