Default Foo Fighters related friend problem

so one of my friends has lately started to make fun of/annoy the living crap out of me for being a big Foo Fighters fan. she says i'm obsessed (not that there's anything wrong with that) with them. she also calls me a "groupie" and has made fun of me for having a picture of Dave as my profile picture on facebook (he's awesome, it's a cool picture, and i'm as ugly as a donkey's ass; i think it's okay). i've tried explaining to her that i am a big Foo Fighters fan, and they are my favorite band, but i'm not as nearly as big a fan as others, and have never been to see them in concert (i didn't hear about them until a while after last time they came to town), but she still doesn't stop. any help?

sorry if this is in the wrong section; thought it might have gone here b/c it was Foo related

can't stand people who insist on having other people as their facebook profile pictures for more than a week. Be yourself!

You can have it for a little while to show it off, sure. It's more people who's profile pics are their car. So lame!

people made fun of me for a long time for the same reason as you. I always ignored and it just stopped.

it's my favorite band, but not the ONLY band I know, so the only times I really got annoyed was when someone implied that I had a limited taste for music as I only listened to the foos, which is a complete lie. even when I have tons of their songs on a playlist, I always have the equivalent of other bands or band.

fun fact, there was a guy who kept forgettin my name, so he called me "hey, foo fighters!" instead, it's so much more complicated but some people just cannot lose the joke.

Pff... what kind of a friend is that? I mean, no offence, but they should mind their own business. I love FF a lot, but me and my boyfriend just make jokes about it

Don't take so much offense to it. Just joke it off. People say to me "you would marry dave grohl." So I say something like "not only that, I'd be his housewife, and let him cheat on me." Anytime the joke is on you, make it so it is also a joke for you.

that is very true.

yeah, when you take someone's joke about you and spice it a little bit YOURSELF, people tend to be embarassed or just lose the fun of it, people like to see you blush, but when you don't AND you joke too, it just dies.

I agree! It's so fucking annoying when people do that, it's the sort of thing I remember doing when I was 14.

But yeah on topic, just get over it or stop flaunting your obsession in peoples faces. If you give them ammo, you'll get shot, my friends used to take the piss with me but now I don't give them the opportunity, i.e rarely put them on when we're hanging out, only mention them to people who are also interested in them.
