What Popular Thing Did You Never Get Into? People Shared Their Thoughts.

I know my answer to this question…

For the life of me, I can’t get into jam bands.

I’m talking about Phish, Widespread Panic, and other bands like that.

And a lot of my friends are super into that stuff…but it’s just not for me, I guess…

Let’s see what other things AskReddit users can’t get into despite their popularity.

1. Oh, well.


Someone I knew in college told me about Bitcoin back in 2011. She encouraged me to throw $100 into it “just in case it takes off.”

Haha oh well…”

2. GOT.

“Game of Thrones was a phenomenon so extreme that for nearly 8 years it was all anyone talked about, an instant conversation starter.

Many people hosted watch parties with large diverse groups of friends and family.

There is no reason we all shouldn’t have rewatched it like 4 times by now, but the ending was bad.

It was so bad that it retroactively ruined the beginning.

I’ve never seen something crash so hard.”

3. Okay, Gramps.


Which makes me think i’m getting old even though I’m not that old.”

4. Not into it.

“As a guy, being an enthusiastic sports fan and watching sports a lot on TV.

I appreciate athleticism and can enjoy watching a game or a match, especially live. I’ll attend a football game watching for social reasons and for the beer.

But I have never even gotten close to the commitment, knowledge and passion that most guys seem to have about watching other men play a game.”

5. Expensive.

“Funko pop vinyl figures.

I never like the overall style of them and seeing as there are so many of characters I like, it looks like I’ve saved a small fortune by not getting into collecting them.”

6. Not into Tweeting.

“There are some funny tweets, sure, but it’s not nearly enough to make me go into it.

I have an account from 2010 with like 7 tweets.

I just can’t get what’s so cool about it.”

7. Too fast.

“Video games.

I don’t know what is wrong with my eyesight/visual acuity, but I cannot process things that move fast on a screen (don’t worry – I don’t drive either).

I cannot follow most video games at all.”

8. Witchcraft!

“Harry Potter.

My parents didn’t let me read the books as a kid because “witchcraft,” and I’ve never gotten enough motivation to make the time to go back and read them now as an adult.”

9. Forgot about it.

“I tried SOOOOOOO f**king hard to get into Fortnite because I loved the concept and it sounded really fun.

I spent about a month playing a couple games a day, thinking it’ll grow on me, but it never did and eventually I just kinda forgot to play it

I still love the concept behind it l, but the gameplay just felt so dull

This isn’t a case of me being had at the game, I actually won a few times, which was part of why it took me a month instead of a week or a few days.”

10. Remember those?

“Fidget Spinners, back when they were popular.

Ahh, Summer of 2017, a totally different time!”

11. I’m with you.

“Marvel movies/TV shows.

I appreciate what goes into making them and understand the appeal but even after landing a small role in one I couldn’t get as excited fans around my age.”

12. Not for me.

“Reality shows. Every one of them.

All the way back to MTV’s Real World.

I’m living a life. I don’t wanna watch it.”
