Poll: What's your favorite type of music

So, in getting to know my fellow interferences better, I was wondering what the predominant musical preference is on the board. Please pick the one that best suites your musical taste. I apologize in adance if you feel I've misplaced a particular band in a particular genere (I know calling Pink Floyd part of the British Invasion is a stretch but I wanted to get them in somewhere).

None of the above.

I really couldn't pick a favourite genre anyway. I couldn't bring myself to pick the Dunedin Sound (The Chills, Straitjacket Fits) over modern progressive/art rock (Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater) or the melodic rock of Crowded House or darkness of Joy Division.

Yeah, there should be a...... a "n/a" or "other" or something. Or "eclectic" or "world music", etc.


And what about jazz??


I would, off that list, pick the U2 one on the bottom I guess.... But that's not really a true answer.

Like everything else, my tastes go beyond "types" I believe any music can be good, or like. It's not types. It's substance.

Everyone know Gwen Steffani (sp) from No Doubt?
I disliked her music for the longest time. I thought she always had potential, and some talent. But now, her latest songs, especially the cover of "It's my life", I thnk that is smashingly good.

Sure, I admit type does have an influence, but also... I think there is a.. an... thing, and either you like it or you don't.



But I don't meant to ...... negate your poll. hahhaa.


Just stating my long andwindedpeice, that's all.

Wow. You've obviously spent a lot of time creating this poll. But I have to say that my favorite genre is either not here or a mix of 2 or 3 that you mentioned!

My favorite bands are U2, The Beatles, Radiohead, REM, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd among others. So I guess you could say I like bands that constantly try to push their boundaries and make exciting music!

I wish I could pick the 1990s and the British Invasion... I dunno...if you look at my favorite albums they all tend to be pretty similar but I'm not sure what I'd call that kind of music specifically.

No offense but some of those groupings are horrible. I know you meant well, but you should have just come up with generic genres and let people post what they thought those genres meant.

Kenny Rodgers doesn't deserve a place with Willie Nelson. Just like Kiss with Zeppelin, or Flock of Seagulls with Psychedelic Furs...

That being said, I listen to so much of everything that I couldn't answer this poll.

Right now my top ten rotation are:

Johnny Cash
Ryan Adams
U2
Stereophonics
Grant Lee Buffalo
Arcade Fire
Sinead O'Connor
New Radicals
Bob Marley
Fiona Apple

I agree. For one thing, Bruce Springsteen is NOT just '80s rock. Some (although by no means all) of his best work was in the '70s. Also, there is a whole world of R&B beyond Usher, Mariah Carey and R. Kelly. What about Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye? Then again, I don't like the thought of lumping them in with the likes of Usher, so maybe you should have just had separate categories, like classic R&B and current R&B.

But I guess it's all rather meaningless in my case because I could never pick a favorite category of music.

your categorization is suspicious.

stoner rock =/= dmb, phish, dead. that's hippie jam music. stoner rock is a label applied to bands like queens of the stoneage, monster magnet, tree, drunken horse (or whatever they're actually called), hell probably dinosaur jr. fits in there...


i like some things from almost every category, while i hate other things from the very same categories. so i can't vote.
