Should i try to change my music taste to fit in with what people at school listen to mostly?

In my grade, most people listen to rap and hip hop, and these artists usually include Lil Uzi Vert, XXXTentacion, Travis Scott, and tons of other people. I sometimes listen to rap, but i like bands like Slayer, Gojira, Mudvayne, Korn, S.O.D, and many more bands. The problem is, I often get weird looks for listening to this type of music, and a few people i know told me i shouldn't listen to metal in school in general because it would make me look like a school shooter. I feel stupid for asking this because i could ignore and be myself, but should i try to fit in more?

If you have to change yourself, than you would be a phony. Don't try and be part of a clique, when you are clearly not. Don't let ANYONE try and influence you on what kind of music you listen to. You listen to what makes you happy, after all, you are not at school to please others and "their" style of music.


no, it's just music.
