It's True: Some People Just Don't Like Music

sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Researchers have found that between 1 and 3% of people don't like music of any kind. These people aren't tone deaf or incapable of grasping the emotional meaning of a song—their brains simply didn’t find listening to music rewarding. While some psychiatric disorders are associated with the loss of the ability to feel pleasure, called anhedonia, the music-haters represent the first evidence for not feeling pleasure from only one specific pleasing stimulant, a condition that has been dubbed music-specific anhedonia. Curious where you fall on the music reward spectrum? The researchers have an online quiz. [http://www.brainvitge.org/bmrq.php]"

Yeah It's true some people just don't like music! I don't know why to them. I think that's just natural of them.
