How Underground Are Your Music Tastes?
You've got to be a Last.fm user to participate in this one. Recently there was a tool released called the Mainstream-O-Meter that looks at your music listening habits (top 30 most listened to artists) and calculates how mainstream your tastes are based on how many other Last.fm users listen to the same artists. The formula is well thought-out, although likely far from perfect based on the user samples and sampling of music played only at users' computers, but let's run with it just for fun.
The resulting score is a percentage representing how mainstream your musical tastes are. One could therefore infer that the difference would represent how underground your music tastes are.
Take my stats for instance: If I'm only 6% mainstream, I would be 94% underground. How underground are you?
