Because you like music that is not spoon fed to you do you consider yourself a music snob?

I'm not clear what a music snob is based on the OP's post.
How about a maybe vote..?

Not at all. I find quality even in the pop songs. Desireless - Voyage Voyage is as important as the most complex progressive songs for me.

I may be snob in some ways, yet if you mean "progsnob", I'm far from it.

Not quite sure how to answer, but probably. I enjoy a wide variety of music that includes prog rock, but is not exclusive to prog rock. Everything from rock, to blues, to classical, to jazz, to schlocky lounge, big band, etc. But, I like what I like, and don't like what I don't like - probably makes me a snob...

No. I like a lot of different styles of music, and dislike a fair number.

I was "spoon fed" with Europe - The Final Countdown, when I was very little. I still think it is one of the best songs ever written and performed (and also sound wise).

I was also "spoon fed" with Trio - Da Da Da. After I matured, I've been thinking that it is one of the biggest craps in history.

I don't know if snobbishness should enter into consideration when it comes to one's individual tastes in music.

If you were to impose that taste on others by deriding music that they enjoy, i think that would be snobbish - but that's true of any kind of subjective enjoyment of art/media.

Taken to its extreme however, ideally no one should be imposing loud music on people in public spaces, because there will be at least some people who dislike it. This is especially egregious in the use of (bad) modern music in grocery stores. I'm hypersentive to sound, and music in particular, so in general i dislike stores playing music - even if it's music I don't actively dislike, because i would rather focus on my shopping undistracted.

Yes, I have a masters degree in music theory and I like modern jazz and 20th century composers, and I won't take gigs that pay less than $100.00, although a real snob would demand more than that.

I am not a music snob. I just happen to be right, and if you agree with me, you are also right. See how inclusive I am?

Not even sure what that means anymore. I would say the opposite is true of the OP's premise. People who do not explore nything outside of what is spoon fed to them are the music snobs.

I'm certainly snobby about some aspects of music. That being said, I don't dislike music for being too mainstream or simplistic, although I have particular opinions that tend to be negative towards certain trends in modern popular music.

Snobbery is only in the ear of the beholder. . . . or something.

Hi,

I think a lot of folks would think I am a music snob. 

I'm not sure what they are referring to ... one look at my collection and the amount of different musics and my standing up for so many lesser known bands, makes me think that snobbery is not something that goes with me ... at least not like the academic days I was familiar with ... when the "intellectuals" would be discussing the latest Fellini, or Antonioni, and they thought that .... the children don't belong here in the living room next to the professors and these discussions.

I still kinda joke that they were just, in some hidden way, just jealous that there were no fold outs of Sophia Loren and Anita Ekberg for them to enjoy!
