There is currently an AI bot on the Internet that ravages people who fry Spotify music and you really have to bravely remind yourself of its mockery.
Just a few weeks ago, all Spotify Wrapped for 2020 was eagerly compared online. Honestly, it got a little much. Paul’s cousin’s favorite artist of the year was Billie Eilish? Great. Your aunt was among the top 0.5% of Taylor Swift listeners? Congratulations.
Now the mean and insidious AI bot has arrived and is ready to REALLY tell you how bad your Spotify is. Comes courtesy of genius on Pudding, “How bad is your Spotify?” the bot uses “sophisticated AI” to “judge your awful taste in music.”
The experience will be a huge moment for any music snobs – and there are plenty of them out there – who have always bragged out loud about how great their musical taste is. This bot just doesn’t care.

Once he is granted access to your Spotify account, the bot goes through your listening behaviors and then discusses it with sharp wit and seeming sincerity.
The bot will brazenly ask if you’ve ironically listened to certain songs (his questioning of my listening to Maja DeMarco’s “Ode to the Viceroy” really struck me). It will also make you play the unexpected game ‘Fuck You, Get Married, Kill Yourself’ with three of your favorite artists. The bot has no mercy.
Eventually you’ll get a base percentage to compare with friends and family, and the bot will summarize your musical taste in hyper-specific and devastating detail: for this writer, ‘Your spotify was instagram-your-tent-at-sunset-craft-beer -snob-Cabincore bad ‘I really felt like Bon Iver a cheap man.
Don’t be scared, because it’s really just a lot of harmless fun (if you can handle 21% calling you basic). Follow the link here and simply log in to your Spotify account and let the chaos begin!
