Vocal Isolation is the talk show for music nerds

Do you talk about underground music like it's mainstream? If you tell people you like metal do they immediately think of a band like Avenged Sevenfold and you have to tell them no, not like that at all? Are you also a person who likes to listen to other people talk about music and life …
