It's not so much about taking sides. I respect that others don't like my music.
So far I have been able to listen to it. My colleagues liked my music, I also often asked them what they wanted to hear and if they were okay with me playing music at all.
This new guys music taste isn't compatible with my other colleagues taste and he always has his headphones on, so I play the music that my other colleague likes.
I asked the new guy about me playing music and he said he was fine with it, but then he takes the matter directly to management. I'm a pretty scary guy I guess, so, although I'm a little disappointed he just doesn't ask me to turn off my music, I'm ok with it.

I'm all about not forcing other people to listen to music they don't want to. I also never said I was.

And then I asked what other people do to make work more like-able.
Perhaps I can fit that into my daily routine instead of music. Although I really love to listen to music.
It's an OO world.
