YouGov Prove That Radiohead Fans Are Boring, Morrissey Fans Are Earnest Vegetarians, and Old Women Love Kasabian
by Joe Zadeh, Noisey Vice


excerpt:




Meat is murder etc. etc., and it seems that Morrissey fans are happy to follow their dour overlord into a life of being a nuisance at dinner parties and unwanted flatulence. They rank vegetarian sausage rolls, vegetarian haggis, and satay tofu as their top foods. They also cement their status as people you’d least want to hang out with, describing themselves as misanthropic, alternative types who prefer Fanta to Coke and part with their cash on Indie GoGo, presumably so they can support start-up cradle-to-grave llama farms.

Is there such a thing as wanted flatulence?

Horseshit. I am an earnest vegetarian, I love Radiohead, and I hate Kasabian.

P.
by the definitions set forth in the article, you are an Earnest Vegetarian (Moz fan), Boring (Radiohead fan) and not an old woman (Kasbian fan)

The following artists and their fanbases are profiled here: Lana Del Rey; Cliff Richard; Morrissey; Drake; Oasis; Blur; Radiohead; Kasbian

I agree completely with this:

Oasis vs. Blur was about politics and class

The stats suggest that the 90s “Battle of Britpop” didn’t just boil down to whether you preferred Damon Albarn’s coiffed fringe over Liam’s wanker swagger. It represented opposites throughout your entire way of life. The archetype Oasis fan—according to YouGov—is a right-leaning, tabloid reader, who works in construction, gorges chocolate fudge pudding, and watches Family Guy. Whereas model Blur fans are London based office workers who lean left, read The Guardian, and play Scrabble. Worth noting that Blur fans second most favored band is Pulp, whereas the second most popular band amongst Oasis fans? Blur.

Best part is not the article but the profiler. Like P. (Skinny) said in Off-Topic, you can profile just about anything.
