The Mainstream-O-Meter ... will show you how mainstream (uncool) you are. I am 48.7% mainstream, sadly. If it weren't for those Beatles, and Led Zeppelin, grr.

Where are the rest of ya at? ( profile with listening history required to play)

Doubles are no sweat here, bkudria. Hi.

Well, I missed the other one and I'm glad to say I'm 2.72% mainstream. Given my weird life, I guess that's about right in all areas, not just music.

I'm 10.31% mainstream. I'm kinda more interested in who's the most mainstream, though I wonder whether that kind of listener, and that kind of listening, is underrepresented in's userbase.

I'm 14.56% mainstream.

I'm around 40% mainstream. Which is probably about right.

I do not understand how this works.

Oh no, at 14.73%, I'm slightly more mainstream than hellbient!

However, my girlfriend comes out at less than 1% mainstream, so she wins.

26.96 % mainstream.

And I'm okay with that.

Alas, I am not even mainstream enough to have a account.
posted by brina 07 May | 16:05
yeah klang, I'm blaming Bowie, The Clash, Mr. Cash and The Strokes (ahem) on that number.
posted by Hellbient 07 May | 16:29 keeps saying my username isn't valid, even tho it is. Guess I'll never know how mainstream I am.

I'm at 15% or so...thank heavens. No good Dylan and Bowie! I could never complain about the only band that matters though, so I'll leave my complaining at that!

Oh, ok, danostuporstar, thanks. Had me worried a bit there. Hi back.

I score 13.7%. It would have been lower if the tape-Beatles didn't induce division by 0.

Why is Arling & Cameron less than 1% mainstream? They soundtracked a Gap ad, for Pete's sake. They do remixes for Bjork. They're better known than... well... than at least five other higher-scoring artists on my list.

29.2% mainstream, pretty much right where I thought I'd be.
