Mostly A’s – You are a Musical Moonlighter

Forever hunting for the fresh beat you spend most of your time at clubs having your eardrums clawed at. Your playlists consist of Kiss 101 tracks and the bass will keep everyone up at night. Preferably wearing beats headphones, you keep up with new trends. Your fast paced lifestyle keeps up with your busy schedule.



Mostly B’s – You are a Mainstream Commuter

Music may not be a large factor of your life and is more enjoyable as single tracks when running to morning lectures to keep a steady pace or to wake you up! You’ll listen to most songs, all of varied genres as your friends mention them to you. You’re not fussy and you seem to enjoy all genres and moods.



Mostly C’s – You are a Rock God(des)

Who needs to pay for music when your parents have it all on CD and Vinyl? Your scruffy exterior and constant wearing of headphones suggest that you really enjoy your music loud and proud. Your hair may be messy from the head banging at a gig last night and your room is kitted out to start your own band.



Mostly D’s – You are a Musical Elitist

Much like the Rock God, you don’t necessarily pay for your music but you’re definitely a music hoarder. Your music style ranges throughout the genres and your iPod of choice is the classic. With such appreciation for music, you may play an instrument, but not necessarily sing. All music has a great effect on you and you love finding more music to enjoy whether it’s slow or fast.
