I used to the massively into metal (death, speed, heavy, black, you name it, I listened to it) but now I'm much more open in terms of genre. My absolute faves right now have to be indie, dubstep and dubstyle.

07-14-2010, 12:57 PM
I basically listen to every style of music (with the exception of Country music) but I live for Hardcore (Hardcore, Post-Hardcore, Hardcore/Electronica) :)

07-14-2010, 10:06 PM
I listen to mostly Metal (Metallica, Machine Head, etc) but I do like some of those funky bands like Primus and Korn. :p

07-20-2010, 01:41 AM
I don't believe I have a favorite genre per say, some bands suck others don't

But I like bands such as:
Five Finger Death Punch
Bullet for my Valentine
Linkin Park
Rammstein (I understand it too... er... will in a few months)
Its hard to find french stuff like that but it would be great if someone knew some and would like to share the information with me (et je comprends francais) its not just for the sound

08-06-2010, 03:45 PM
I'd have to say staright up rock, although I'm getting back in to rap at the moment as well. I'm also a big big fan of the Josh Homme genre e.g. QOTSA (favorite band ever), Eagles of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures.

Davey Zoo
08-07-2010, 04:29 PM
Mainly Hip-Hop/Rap:rant:, But I also like Kasabian, Red Hot Chilli Peppers & Florence and the Machine among lots of others.

08-08-2010, 12:48 AM
I prefer rock and its different variants as well as some metal(only bands like Bullet For My Valentine though), I do listen to a bit of everything though, apart from rap, terrible stuff right there.

08-08-2010, 09:26 AM

10-27-2011, 03:41 PM
my favorite type of music are: Grime/Rap/Hip-hop/RnB/Raggae/Dancehall

10-27-2011, 05:52 PM
Thats a hard one for me since I enjoy every genre besides gospel and country. I'd have to say either Techno or Rock(alternative - hard).

11-21-2011, 12:55 PM
I have a wide variety of musical interests, but if I HAD to choose one, I would say metal....probably melodic death metal or whatever they are calling it nowadays

11-21-2011, 01:29 PM
Mainly Electro/techno/pop. I finding myself drawn more towards songs with a computer beat than classic band instruments. But generally i have fav artists/groups, nit a fav gnere. I probably like at least one song from every genre. I thought opera would be excluded, but if the SSBB opening counts it's awesome.

11-23-2011, 11:29 PM
Rock, metal, and Techno.

11-23-2011, 11:51 PM
Classic rock. More specifically, 70s hard rock and 80s hair metal.

11-24-2011, 12:27 AM
Alot: All kinds of Metal, Electro n' DubStep and OST's. The mood is important.

11-24-2011, 10:02 AM
I pretty much like all types of music..except screamo, I just don't get it.

12-01-2011, 01:49 AM
Everything! I don't stick to a specific genre. I mostly listen to J-Pop, Metal and Classical/Video Game because that is mostly what I have in my music library, but basically, if I think it sounds good, I'll like it, no matter the genre.

12-01-2011, 06:18 AM
I'll listen to anything except Country. I don't know why, I just don't like it. As for Rap, I'm underground cause I really don't like most mainstream crap these days

12-02-2011, 02:45 PM
ROCK << Is all I have to say :)

Ultimate Shingo
12-05-2011, 07:38 PM
Hard to say, as I give every song a shot.
Most songs that I like are from Techno, more like Hardstyle and Hands Up, but I'm looking for Dubstep these days. Then we have Rap, but I'm really picky there. No gangsta sh!t ;)
As for Rock and Metal, I prefer Folk Metal and 80's or early 90's Rock. But as I said, I'm not bound to genres or even to bands, I'll try out lots of songs.
I also like to listen to Video Game Music, especially to Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy for example).Not far away is OverClocked Remix, it's a paradise for my ears :)

12-08-2011, 04:38 AM
Trance, Ambient, House. Most of my music is made up of these genres but I have a bit of everything.

01-05-2012, 03:13 PM
Punkrock all the way :)

01-05-2012, 03:41 PM
I listen to 80s and First Wave on SirusXM radio the most. Some Boneyard and Hairbands. But I like a little form everyone. I can go from Godsmack, to Shaggy, to The Beatles, to 40s big band, to Depech Mode. But I don't care for jazz, opera, blues or counrty.

01-05-2012, 04:45 PM
I think it's good to have an open mind to music genres, but my favourites are Melodic Death Metal, Industrial Metal, Progressive Rock, Electronic, Avent Garde Metal, and Thrash Metal.

So yeah, Metal, basically..... >_>

01-12-2012, 01:01 AM
Classic Rock, a little bit of Grunge, Motown and 80's music are some of my favorites, but i like a little bit of everything.

01-12-2012, 01:07 AM
Rock music, metal

Stuff along those lines ...

01-12-2012, 06:24 AM
Mostly hard rock "stoner rock" some heavy metal and folk/country stuff like Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt, The Band. Hip Hop/rap as well.

01-17-2012, 09:35 PM
Mostly classic rock, alt/indie rock and a lot of electro/house/progressive/trance!

01-18-2012, 08:32 PM
Indie, Irish Rock, Metal.

01-19-2012, 05:40 PM
My tastes are geared more towards 80s music (Dead or Alive, Billy Idol etc.), Grunge and Alt. Rock, a pinch of Metal and throw in some J-Pop and J-Rock.

01-19-2012, 07:24 PM
listen to almost everything.. to be specific hip-hop, south asian, dancehall, sri lankan baila, newage pop, rock, punjabi, trance/techno, epic soundtracks, etc etc..

01-20-2012, 06:04 PM
I don't think I have the same taste as really anyone on this forum.

Mostly folk, jazz, some indie, a little post-rock, very very few hip-hop artists, and a few that don't fit into these genres like My Morning Jacket.

I've started watching every new album review by Anthony Fantano and then listening to that album (unless he doesn't give it a very high score), just to try and find some new bands/albums. Plus, he's great at reviewing music.

01-22-2012, 01:04 AM
I have a pretty easy ear for music, except RnB and all this disgusting chart music that the media throw at everyday people.
Anything from The Smiths to The Strokes, Skrillex to Ben Howard etc

01-22-2012, 04:52 AM
I like a lot of stuff anything from country,k-pop, j-pop, jazz, instrumentals, reggae, rock, I could keep going but I won't.

02-02-2012, 09:56 PM
I used to be a massive fan of hip-hop and dismissed all other genres of music, but now I listen mostly to alternative and indie rock. I still like some hip-hop though, and I think the only genre that I absolutely despise is noise.

02-02-2012, 10:25 PM
Rock and only rock. Everything else I cant stand...

02-06-2012, 05:09 AM
Mostly hard rock and heavy metal, but I also enjoy some blues.

Auron Surmount
02-08-2012, 07:40 PM
I like a lot of different music. I don't go in depth with the names of the type of music.
However, I like...

classic rock
death metal (Not the biggest fan)
punk (not a huge fan, but i do like some)
I will listen to Pop, Country, and rap. But in such little amounts. That i barely say i like them. example: if it is on the radio i will tolerate it. But i would never listen to such music on my own free will.
"Screamo": I have standards. If you can't understand them. Then it isn't worth listening to. UNLESS you are listening for the instruments. Then get something that is instrumental. I have alot of bands that may fall into this catagory, but I may put them into alternative, rock, or metal.
I like everything from old stuff to new stuff. I typically have been listening to music from the late 90s till today. I find myself listening to a lot of Avenged Sevenfold. Why? I have no idea. More so thier old stuff. But I also love their new stuff. I just love all thier music. Metallica. They are also awesome. Escape the fate. Falling in Reverse. Bullet for my Valentine. Muse. Korn. Atreyu. Mudvayne. Godsmack. Disturbed. Drowning Pool. Acceptance (thier first album). Slipknot. Blue october. the unseen. the used. bad religion. taking back sunday. system of a down. story of the year. slayer. sevendust. rise against. she wants revenge. sick puppies. 10 years. ..... that is just to name a few. I have a fairly mixed taste. Of course there is older stuff i like too. Oh can't forget the misfits. These for the most part are newer bands that I like. I love the classics too. But there is no real need to post them here. why? beause they are classics. Everyone knows they are awesome ^^

(sorry for such a disorganized post. That is what i get for trying to do it off the top of my head.)

02-12-2012, 10:23 PM
nice I kinda like the same

02-12-2012, 10:24 PM
Soft, Hardcore, Metalcore, Etc

02-13-2012, 03:37 AM
I used to listen to all rock and heavy metal and I swore by those genres. While I still do listen to them, over the past few years I've taken a huge liking to the electronic genre and all of its sub-genres. One of my favorite being electro hip hop/soul.

A very good example:

Also dubstep, drum and bass, and progressive house are among my favorite sub-genres of electronic.

02-13-2012, 04:30 PM
definately punk :Bounce:

04-06-2012, 03:40 AM
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal
some Classic Rock depends on the band

04-06-2012, 04:01 AM
Rap and Rock. Some Dubstep is alright, but I'm not a huge fan of it.

06-30-2012, 02:17 AM
Primarily rock and metal. I do like a bit of hip hop on the side.

07-05-2012, 01:25 AM
Rap & Hip-Hop. I listen to some Dubstep, but not primarily.

07-05-2012, 01:29 AM
A wide variety, mostly classic rock/heavy metal...

08-05-2012, 03:04 PM
My favourite genres are Rock and Metal like Guns n Roses and Iron Maiden.

Warpath Wolf
08-11-2012, 07:45 PM
I like bands like Dropkick Murphys, Disturbed, Metallica, Godsmack, Rise Against, Green Day, Queen, AC/DC, Scorpions and so on.

I also enjoy rap.

08-19-2012, 05:06 AM
I truly like a little bit of everything, but my all time favorite genres are Post-Punk and EBM. I don't meet very many people who are into either though, lol.

Last Shaman
09-07-2012, 07:22 PM
I listen to any kind of music but i'm really into rock music.

09-07-2012, 08:22 PM
Either Alternative rock or techno.

09-11-2012, 10:22 PM
these genres because i want to be good at them in guitar.

of course, there are a few odd selections that are just for tripping out of the norm.

09-12-2012, 12:43 PM

09-12-2012, 01:06 PM

Did you actually buy those from Jankees or downloaded them? I love his soundtracks!

09-12-2012, 01:59 PM

But I'm also really into swing, some hip-hop, acoustic, alternative, and a few others.

09-12-2012, 03:42 PM
Did you actually buy those from Jankees or downloaded them? I love his soundtracks!
I thought about it, I mean the guy is absolutely amazing and I would love to have his signature, but nah; dl from amazon.

You know the reason he looks happy all the time?

09-22-2012, 06:18 PM
I enjoy almost every genre, metalcore the most though

09-27-2012, 06:04 PM
Pop Punk is my favorite type but I listen to a lot. My favorite band is blink-182! :D

10-14-2012, 02:12 PM
The only music I do not like is EBM and pop.

10-15-2012, 01:57 AM
Like many people have put, I listen to pretty much anything.

However, I'd say my favourite types of music are Indie/Rock/Folk, I also like listening to Blues and Jazz which my mates find weird haha.

10-15-2012, 01:58 AM
Too many to name. Seriously, I like at least one thing in every genre.

10-15-2012, 11:56 PM
Same, I probably have a song from about 30 genres on my phone.

10-16-2012, 01:34 AM
Metal manily new age metal tho like prog metal, tech etc...

10-16-2012, 02:07 AM
Gotta say Rock N' Roll.

10-16-2012, 02:18 AM

Infected Guts - Cerebral Vomiting - YouTube

Harreh Shat
11-16-2012, 02:23 AM
I'm personally into all kinds of metal; Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Symphonic Technical Brutal Death Metal, you name it! I also step out of that zone. I like Indie Rock, Techno, some Rap, and Jazz. Go ahead, hate.

11-17-2012, 09:40 AM
Pretty much everything. Lots of the Decemberists lately.

11-20-2012, 12:40 AM
Dance mainly and some Top 50

Dragon BLaZe o
11-20-2012, 12:44 AM
Any kind of good music but mainly Hip Hop.

11-23-2012, 07:12 PM
I like a lot of different types of music but my favorites would be rock, techno, and foreign (especially French and Japanese). :)

12-03-2012, 04:57 PM
I listen to a lot of drum & bass and frequent events pretty much every Friday night. Of course that's not all I listen to, as I am also big into classic rock, hip-hop, and jazz. I don't disparage any type of particular music, because if something sounds good to me it sounds good, and I typically don't really care what genre it is. The lines between a lot of genres can be pretty damned blurry these days, anyhow.

12-05-2012, 12:34 AM
Trance. Been listening to it religiously for just over 11 years now. First picked it up around 2001ish when a mate of mine came back from the UK with a CD his brother gave him. Fell in love ever since.

I produce Trance and Progressive, and DJ anything EDM. From Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Psy & Goa, Chillout, House, Minimal & Ambient. You name it.

I cringe when people use the term 'Techno' to sum up EDM.

12-05-2012, 12:50 AM
I cringe when people use the term 'Techno' to sum up EDM.

Ahh, I agree! That is seriously annoying, and it happens all the time here in the States. People just say, "Oh, I don't like techno," when they're talking about something that is not techno at all. I also find it ironic, considering how the background beats of all the pop music these days sounds a lot like "techno" to me.

Having said that, I do genuinely like some true techno artists like Richie Hawtin / Plastikman and Jeff Mills.

12-05-2012, 06:57 AM
tends to be underproduced shitty old black metal above everything else

12-05-2012, 05:50 PM
Industrial synthpop and progressive trance. Most of my favourite bands/artists are not categorized because they don't sound quite like any other group - for example, The Birthday Massacre. I think they classify themselves as gothic rock/pop rock but not really sure. Emilie Autumn, well, she made up her own genre called "victoriandustrial".

12-05-2012, 10:27 PM
I've been on a Celtic punk binge lately.

Nathan WV10
12-05-2012, 10:39 PM
My favourites are grime, rap, uk rap and hip hop. Others i listen to are drum and base, baseline, dubstep and jackin house.

12-06-2012, 03:19 AM
My personal favorites are harder rock (FFDP, Disturbed) and Rap, not radio rap though.

12-07-2012, 12:13 AM
Favorite genre has to be Hardcore/Post-Hardcore.

Woe, is Me
A Day To Remember
We Came as Romans

just to name a few that I like

12-09-2012, 01:55 AM

Ever heard of a YouTube user named oabbasi? He posts songs of lesser-known melodic death metal bands. Among my favorites from oabbasi's channel are Death Scythe, Icewind Blast, Be'lakor, Inferi, Descend Into Nothingness... the list goes on. I never knew so many death metal bands existed! :)

I also listen to more well-known metal/rock bands such as Disturbed, Trivium, Amon Amarth, Five Finger Death Punch, As I Lay Dying, etc.
