What genre of music do you like?

Recommended Posts

I like most music to some degree, although I've yet to find any dance or dubstep that I like (and yes, I have heard Burial). I LOVE metal in most of its forms, although there are comparatively few metalcore and deathcore bands that I like, and female-fronted gothic metal leaves me cold. I also love most experimental music, and other favourite genres are jazz/blues, classical, punk/hardcore/grindcore/powerviolence, and noise/power electronics. Some of my current favourite albums:

 

Autopsy - Mental Funeral, Macabre Eternal

Satan - Court In The Act

Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss, Filosofem

Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness

Napalm Death - Scum, From Enslavement To Obliteration

Man Is The Bastard - Mancruel

Septic Death - Attention

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto #23

Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 1 ('Titan')

John Zorn - Naked City

Sutcliffe Jugend - When Pornography Is No Longer Enough

Whitehouse - Asceticists, Mummy And Daddy

Merzbow - Pulse Demon

Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue, [bleep]es Brew

Mercyful Fate - Don't Break The Oath

 

This list is liable to change by tomorrow.

I'm not particularly picky. I like my music based on the song itself - not the genre. So I'll take almost anything :P

I like a little bit from each genre, I think. Haven't found much R&B and those that tend towards that 'rappish' style. Can't say I like country at all, though. Taylor Swift and all her beauty still doesn't make me like it a little.

 

I'm quite fond of alternative, punk rock, and indie. Also, big fan of jam bands (DMB, Oasis, OAR, etc). I'll say I can handle a lot of music in all genres except country, rap/R&B, and classic rock (can't stand classic rock).

 

I've got to say, though, besides Blink-182 and Dave Matthews Band, the majority of what I listen to is Post Rock. I've been trying to enlarge my library:

 

Hammock

Stars of the Lid

Explosions in the Sky

The Six Parts Seven

Sigur Ros

Eluvium

This Will Destroy You

Mogwai

Godspeed! You Black Emperor

Yndi Halda

Mono

 

There's probably a ton of other bands out there. Still searching. :thumbsup:

You might enjoy We Lost the Sea. Eerie post-rock juxtaposed with sludge metal. You can listen to Hail! Star of the Sea on their myspace. Toe as well, thought they're more post-rock and math rock. Álfheimr makes ambient/post-rock/dream pop in the vein of Sigur Ros and his music is free.

[Edit] [cabbage], I just scrolled up all the way (even though there's a "back to top" link on every post) and saw a U Totem video and got all excited. #-o

Other metal:

Why have you said these two are 'other' metal? Both power metal bands... I'm just wondering.

I try to ignore genres and listen to songs individually, but my library is consisted of (for the most part) rock, rap, alt-rock, acoustic and a little dubstep.

 

Currently downloading The Black Keys' discography. They're a blues-rock band that I'm looking forward to hearing more of.

I listen to everything although there are a few genres that are my favorites though:

 

Classical :boohoo:

Rock/Metal (Anything that falls under these categories)

Electronic Music (What I mean by this is pretty much everything from Techno to Trance to House to Hardstyle to Dubstep)

 

If I had to pick my favorite from those above, it would be metal.

Really any kind of Rock going back from the 50s to today (not really fond of the generic/synthetic 80s stuff, though). Alternative Hard Rock would probably be my favorite sub-genre (Breaking Benjamin, Sick Puppies, Billy Talent, etc.). I listen to Metal as well (mostly Metallica and Machine Head). I also enjoy upbeat big-band jazz, such as Maynard Ferguson (who composed the original Rocky theme song).

 

If I had to pick two favorite artists from each (completed) decade of Rock/Metal, it would probably be Breaking Benjamin & System of a Down (00s), Nirvana & Alice in Chains (90s), Metallica & Dio (80s), Pink Floyd & The Eagles (70s), Jimi Hendrix & The Doors (60s), and Chuck Berry & Elvis (50s). A Day to Remember and Hail the Villain are definitely bands to watch out for this decade, imo.

 

I'll listen to pretty much anything from before the 80s and I avoid all genres ending in the letter "p" for their lack of natural (meaning without auto-tune/voice "correction") singing and real (meaning "non-computerized" and not just talking) instruments (which, you know, I always thought you needed at least one of to make music). That's not meant to be an insult to those genres, but I just don't have an interest in any of them :?.

Black Keys really opened my eyes, tbh. Really thought good rock and blues was dead. Then i heard the Black Keys.

 

As for genres, 70's Rock, and Blues. If the song has a heavy and powerful guitar riff, and maybe even a solo or Free Bird-style Duet, I'm hooked. I've strayed away from those genres ocassionally, for example I really liked Pendulum's earlier songs, even if they were Drum'n'Bass.

I don't think I have a specific genre that I listen to.

 

I don't generally listen to albums, usually just single songs from different artists. My library on my computer is very strange and theres so many folders with only one or two songs in each.

 

Though it is mostly made up of rock and metal, which would be what I would say if someone asked me in real life :P

You should try, it's pretty cool to see how songs you listened to independently are actually tied together in an album. That's assuming the songs you don't have aren't filler though.

Yeah, I plan on. I hear bands sometimes talk about how they don't put some songs onto an album because it didn't really fit in with the other songs so I figured that a good album is more crafted rather then shoved together.

Almost everything, but I prefer dubstep.

Pretty much any kind of Rock. I can go from the Beatles to All Shall Perish and back without blinking an eye. I'll also listen to a little rap. Only old school rap and hip-hop though.....rap died after 2000.

You should give Joe Bonamassa a listen. Opened for B.B. King when he was like 9 years old, and he's 30-something today. Saw him live 1,5 years ago, one of the best gigs ever.

Although i listen to/like many genres, i've recently been headbangin' to metal, especially Thrash/Speed :)

My "main genre" has been punk-rock for many years now, mostly 90s PR. I still listen to it, but nowadays i have many different genres added in the mix.

 

I don't like rap/hip hop or similar and the most of todays pop music.
