I have something thats been bugging me...

Why are people extremely apt to rebel against whats popular? I mean something new comes out (A Band, A Movie etc.) and a minority of people like it.. Then the aforementioned thing gets big and people start to hate it because its popular... Whats up with that?

Could you gives so examples?

I suppose it's because that group of people want to have something that they can consider "their own". Just a guess. :confused:

Sure I'll give an example:

I know some people that liked the band "The Strokes" before they had that hit with "Last Nite". They really really really loved that band, but after they started becoming popular, the aforementioned people starting proclaiming that their lead singer was Satan.. All because they went big

Ah, ok. Then I'll stick to what I originally said. :) To elaborate a little, they feel hurt that it's not, "theirs" now.
