Awesome Infographic: The Musicians Least Likely to Get You Laid


You always knew Nickelback were terrible, but did you realize that their music makes a very effective contraception? It’s true! The dating site, which revealed back in April that Coldplay fans are prudes, has just released some fascinating new data on the way our musical preferences affect our sex lives. After surveying thousands of Tastebuds users, they’ve determined which bands are the biggest turnoffs. Nickelback tops the list of acts mostly likely to send a potential partner running for the hills, with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga following fairly close behind. When Tastebuds divided responses by gender, the Nickelback-Bieber-Gaga trifecta still topped both lists. The biggest difference thereafter was that women were actually more bothered by a partner who enjoyed female pop stars (Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj) than men, whose top 10 turnoffs included Coldplay, U2, Lil Wayne, and Creed. See the gender breakdown infographic after the jump. If we had to guess, we’d say this has something to do with heterosexual preferring to date gender-normative men and women. Anyone else have a theory?
