I really feel that a lot of you on here misunderstand what I'm saying, and it's my fault for not being specific enough. When I am saying "we really do care about terms", many of you think that I am only talking about the name or label in a trivial sense. However, what I am saying is far deeper than that, this isn't a name in the same sense as giving people or pets names simply to know who's who; names that are made solely for that purpose do not take into consideration the actual identity of that person or thing. Therefore, we shouldn't care about labels as much in that trivial sense. If you truly like a band, that decision is not made because of whatever label the masses assign to that particular band. So, a term is merely a term, merely a word, and words as they are mean nothing without the interpretation of a subjective entity.
What I am talking about when I say "terms" is the agreement "agreement marker" among certain groups on interpretations. As humans (physically) this is how we communicate intellectually, and this is necessary for the like minded people to recognize their like-mindedness (or lack thereof) with others. It is the acknowledgement of something's identity from one person to another! Also, to avoid further confusion, you can still have terms without language - there could be some kind of visual identity markers, and it would be the same thing... But, language makes it a whole lot easier.
It is in this case that the "term" is the identity marker of the aesthetics and the philosophy, the marker for the group to agree on and recognize each other's understanding. This "group" could be "your future band", or (as I was using as an example) people that you agree with on subjects of philosophy and aesthetics.
If you hate the idea of being in a "group" of any kind, you still need identity markers as a human. We all consciously and subconsciously classify things to recognize what they all share in common that we like about them, and the marker for these properties that we like is what i have been calling the "terms". After all, you have to make sure you agree with yourself.
