In this day and age, I don’t know what’s popular…
Or maybe I’m just too old…
Either way, we all have those things that are insanely popular that just don’t make any sense to us…
And here’s what AskReddit users had to say about this!
Watched the first episode and felt meh about it.”
2. Haven’t seen it.
“The Walking Dead.
I’m just a blank face when people rave about it because I’ve not seen it.
Think I watched one walking dead episode and it was just beyond gore, despite loving Andrew Lincoln from Afterlife.
3. Is this funny?
“Friends (as in the TV show).
Seen quite a few episodes, as have been in the room when other people are watching it, and just can’t understand why so many people find it funny.”
4. What’s so great about it?
A lot of people I know date a lot, I don’t really see what’s so great about dating around as much as they do.”
5. No FB for you.
“I never got a Facebook account back when it was all the rage. I couldn’t have cared less about it.
I always thought it was funny that people bragged about how many “Facebook friends” they had, like that equated to friends in real life.”
6. Uh oh.
I absolutely understand that she’s talented, hardworking, and extremely important for her fanbase. I don’t like her music. I don’t care for voice. She just doesn’t do it for me.
I don’t find something like Lemonade personally appealing. Part of it is my age: I grew up on Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Donna Summer, so I didn’t need Beyonce the way that Millenials did.
I think that’s actually spread to a lot of currently popular musical artists. I wanted to like Taylor, Billie, Lizzo, Cardi, but I’m just not clicking with a lot of contemporary music, and contemporary female singers specifically.
I think it has a lot to do with not caring for current production styles. That means that, come 2036, I’ll discover all of today’s music and it’ll be brand new to me, but in the larger historical contexts I love.
Now cue all the Beyonce insanity in the comments.”
7. What’s the big deal?
Its a good show, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t get all these people who are making it their entire personality.”
8. Stay clean.
“Drinking. And the bar culture. Never got into it.
Always just bummed me out seeing all the same people at bars every night. Not for me.
But for about 90% of this state (Wisconsin), that’s the life.”
9. Very popular.
Everyone raves how it’s so good but I could never get into it.
Survival was too slow and boring, and creative is sometimes fun for building lavish houses.”
I watched it once because my friend wanted to and I’m nice. It was just ladies eating salads and giving each other meaningful looks.
They are all very pretty but not interesting at all to me. I don’t get it.”
11. This is funny.
“The band Oasis.
I always thought the two brothers looked like people I’d avoid in the street, and their singing style was similar to that of a dirge.
So glad they’re not in the charts anymore.”
12. All of it.
What popular thing did you never get into?

Thanks a lot!
