Do You Need a Woman Who Needs Bad Religion?
Having dated dudes whose music taste would make even the non-snobs cringe (one specific guy comes to mind who just loved the Blue Man Group -- and not in an ironic, Arrested Development way), I can see the appeal of matchmaking based on good taste. But something about Rocknrolldating.com screams Hot Topic more than it does hot 'n' heavy. Then again, I've never really needed a guy who was into "Goth Rock / Industrial" ... although, ok, easily ignoring the entire "jam band/Deadheads" pool of single guys in flip-flops could save many ladies a whole lotta trouble.
The music lovers' dating site, which launched last week, includes one interesting bit of trivia: it's the brainchild of Daniel House, who played in O.G. grunge band Skin Yard (which included legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino) and who also launched C/Z records (once the home to NW acts like Built to Spill, 7 Year Bitch, the Gits, and Nirvana). Now there's a guy who had some good taste in music once upon a time. Check off the "grunge/stoner" category and per chance Daniel (or the rockers he inspired) will be just your type. -- Jennifer Maerz
