What Styles of Music Do You Listen to?

Since we have aine's What's your favorite music style? I decided on doing What Styles of Music Do You Listen to?

Rock N' Roll and Heavy Metal are my two favorite styles of music but I listen to a lot more: rock n' roll, heavy metal, hard rock (that being in the AC/DC and early Aerosmith kind of hard rock not Poison or any of that stuff), thrash, punk rock, blues, country, folk and lately I've been listening to a lot of SOUL!!! A lot of Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Joe Cocker, Van Morison lately. No one sings better than soul singers!! I have also been listening to a lot of Motown stuff. There are some genres I don't like but I'm not going to list them. I have tried some three or four times before in the past to get into jazz but so far it hasnít really done much to me. I'll keep on trying though and I'm sure I will find something that will take me in the future. Music is my life, corny but true. What about you all?

I'm really ecletic, I'm a short list about band, and long one about music styles.
I love Blues, Old Rock N' roll, 60's and 80's, pop music from the 90's, acoustic/instrumental music, classic, progressive rock, progressive heavy metal, some hard core, pop rock, some rap and hip hop, and some that I call "hip pop", I also like a lot electronic music, and some music mixes!

As you said that music is your life, is definitly mine too, I'm always with a couple of favorites cds in my purse, and a discman, and sure, batteries, I just get pissed when they're over...

I dream through the songs, as Bono once said, they can take you somewhere else, and that's what happens to me, they totally take me somewhere else, and I totally let them take me.

Cool. I always have my diskman with me too. If I go to collage and at one point in the morning I don't listen to music then I'll end up with a shitty ass morning.

I try to keep my mind (and ears) open to everything, but I admit I still have a hard time with the current state of 'country music'. Though there are even a few acts there who are pretty good (Nickel Creek in particular)

Anyways, here's the list:

Rock (classic, modern, whatever)
Alternative (whatever that may be)
Indie Rock
Indie Pop
Electronica (particularly chill-out and trance lately)
Punk (and most if its subgenres)
Hip Hop
New Age
New Wave

rock n roll (the stuff they play on oldies and some classic rock stations + "revival" type things: buddy holly to chuck berry to the stray cats to rev. horton heat and everything in between)

"classic" punk rock such as the clash, the ramones, stiff little fingers, etc.

nyhc in the vein of agnostic front or murphy's law

boston hardcore in the vein of slapshot, the f.u.'s, gang green, or blood for blood

boston street punk in the vein of dropkick murphys, suspect device, street dogs, ducky boys

oi! (anti-facist or non-political. no racist crap.)

some legit (ie. not good charollete or blink 182) pop-punk (the descendents, some green day, etc.)

some post-punk

i'm not opposed to some goth...but not as far as some metal stuff

i like some metal. like old metallica, motorhead and a few others

i'm getting kicked off the computer now...more later.

I can't say there's any particular genre I dont like by definition
so I listen to every artist I do like

or something like that

I have the biggest collection of aussie music north of ... well, australia

and everyone should download/buy anything they can get their hands on by Hunters & Collectors or I will hunt you down

thank you

AFI is what I'm listening to a lot now for hardcore punk but I listen to rock like Nirvana and Foo Fighters. They're my favorite bands. Also, just classic rock and just a lot of other stuff. I listen to a lot of U2 also.

Hunters are great.

the only style of music I can honestly say I don't like is New Age. I just don't get it.
