We all know and love at least one music snob… Here’s how to understand them
“Any old idiot — even you — loves music, but it takes a smart person to love music in a way that takes all the fun out of it.” …That’s how this video begins, and it only gets better from there.
In a new series from comedy network Above Average , everyone in society is playfully simplified into two categories: idiots and smart people. This helps us idiots understand how smart people think about important topics — in this case, music — and we soon learn that the smart people are really just mostly ridiculous.
Here are a few notable quotes from this video:
Remember that it’s not enough for smart people to like a band. They have to explain why they like a band. And the answer can’t be because it sounds good, even though that’s the only answer that actually matters.

Uncommon time signatures are especially intoxicating to smart people, finally achieving their lifelong goal of injecting math into music.

Both [jazz and classical music] light up all the pleasure centers in a smart person’s brain: they’re obscure, hard to enjoy…and you can study them in college.
There are plenty more, but at this point, it’s time to just watch the video…
