‘How Bad is Your Spotify?’ How to get an AI bot to shame you for your music taste


Many of us have already found out which artists we listened to most in the past year and discovered our most overplayed tracks with Spotify Wrapped.

Depending on what the results were, some of us even shared them with others on social media.

But now a new quiz is here to not only analyse, but to savagely judge our Spotify listening habits.

An “AI Robot“, created by digital publication The Pudding, not by Spotify itself, is here to tell you just how “bad” your music taste is, with often hilarious results.

Here’s everything you need to know about The How Bad Is Your Spotify AI robot and how to do the quiz.

How do I do the The How Bad Is Your Spotify quiz?

Simply head to the How Bad Is My Spotify website, here.

The site will then ask you to log in to your Spotify account, granting the app access.

The app said it won’t “post or change anything” and just wants to see your music library.

Who made it?

The website was created by The Pudding, a digital publication that explains ideas debated in culture with visual essays.

The Pudding said on its website: “Our sophisticated A.I. judges your awful taste in music.”

How does it work?

The app uses artificial intelligence (AI) which was trained by by Matt Daniels and Mike Lacher for The Pudding.

The app said: “I’ve been trained on a corpus of over two million indicators of objectively good music, including Pitchfork reviews, record store recommendations, and subreddits you’ve never heard of,” when you click a button on the website which reads “how do you know what’s good”.

What sort of things does it say?

The quiz takes you through a series of tongue-in-cheek questions in a chatty manner as though it is typing while going through picks from your music library.

It said things such as: “lol… omg… okay hold up… Do you really listen to [artist name]…?”

When you click yes, it proceeds to check: “Like ironically?”

After you go have finished answering its playful questions, the AI robot gives you a result to let you know just how “bad” your Spotify is.

“Your spotify was romcom-trailer-music-glowstick-artisanal-coffee-shop bad,” is the sort of thing you can expect.

It then proceeds to tell you which tracks you listen to “too much”, which artists you obsess over “to an uncomfortable extent” and what per cent “basic” your music tastes are.

It’s all a bit of fun, of course.

What have people on social media said about it?

Many have been sharing and commenting on their quiz results on Twitter.

One Twitter user shared their result: “Your Spotify was adult-skateboarder-80s-dweeb-succulent-growing-indie-pop-bad”, and commented: “The accuracy of the how bad is your Spotify thing is terrifying.”

Another said the AI robot “showed no mercy” and shared results which said: “Your Spotify was tay-tay-fan-girl-cottagecore-tj-maxx-christmas-soundtrack-bad”.

Understandably, not everyone wanted the world to know their music habits though.

One Twitter user said: “I tried the “how bad is your Spotify playlist” AI and I am too embarrassed to share the results…”
