Directly related to name dropping
, the act of creating an overly large list of bands in an effort to appear more culturally secure rather than a true love of music. The "band name dropper" is trying to appear more cultured and music knowledgeable that they really are. Intelligent people are able to see through the facade
and this is a negative habit.
"Oh Hey! I like Tool, The Stones, Metallica, Foo Fighters, blah blah blah, Styx, The Beatles, blah blah.. (usually by now you tune out again.)"
Anyone who has an online profile with more than 7-10 bands in the "music I like" section is a high candidate for band name dropping.
