Re: Favorite genre of music?

i'm partial to metal my favourite band is slayer whenever i need to let off a little steam or to relax slayer is it. I also enjoy hatebreed, jungle rot, cannibal corpse, job for a cowboy, suicide silence, paradise lost, arch enemy, jasta, and many others. I also love the 80's stuff like journey, huey lewis and stuff like that.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

80's music is great. My personal favorite era in music closely followed by the 70's.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

I like stuff like The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Frank Zappa, The Doors, John Lennon..
That's my top tier. Other favorites of mine -
TOOl, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Black Sabbath (with Ozzy), Bob Marley, WHITE ZOMBIE!, Rob Zombie, Pearl Jam, Anvil, Led Zepplin, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, The Ramones, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The Misfits (early stuff with Danzig),  Ani DiFranco (yes, I love this chick), Primus, Beck, Rage Against The Machine, Alice In Chains, The Who, and more recently The Grateful Dead, Captain Beyond, and Armageddon.

I'm also a big fan of the late 1960's psychedelic era of music. Love it.

Oh of course. Misfits are my favorite band but since they're horror punk, I couldn't put them in with those categories.

Well I put my favorite as punk rock but I just felt like organizing it into my favorite types.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

Classic Rock/folk/blues/jazz/raggea all the way. In short TRUE music before consumerism gobbled it up.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

My music taste is really varied, I listen to a lot of metal type stuff, rock, love country music, and 80s and 90s stuff is my guilty pleasure smile Also listen to some pop music (Katy Perry etc) when the missus is around! The only thing I don't like or listen to is rap/RnB

Re: Favorite genre of music?

"specialize" in 70s hard rock, metal and hardcore punk, but also damn partial to 60s garage and psychedelia, British Invasion stuff, Motown, funk, disco, roots music, dub and reggae, old school rap and even some industrial.
If it's done with heart, imagination and integrity I'll probably dig it.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

I listen to bands like Talking Heads, Grateful Dead, Radiohead, U2, The White Stripes, Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper, Klaatu, Nirvana, Boston, Tom Waits, the Sparks. I'm also partial to Alt-rock suck as Green Day, The Strokes, Muse, and The Killers (their early stuff). Lately I've been listening to the alt-rock band Foster the People. And on to one of my most favorite single artists, it's Weird Al. He's introduced the genre "style-parody", and he brings the comedy in music and the style to accordion. So overall I hope that covers it.

Wow...many of these make up the majority of my high school years. 

Dollar Bill by Screaming Trees is one of the greatest songs ever.  Was jamming to Temple not that long ago.

Oh, just wow...to be young again.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

I forgot about rap. N.W.A and OFWGKTA are off the hook, dawg.

Tri- Have you ever listened to Steel Panther?  They are pretty funny...

Re: Favorite genre of music?

Okay, first, smooth-jazz, especially when I'm on the road (I need music that keeps calm with all those idiots out there driving around).

Then other times when I'm in the house or walking around listening to my iPod...

Old School R&B (mostly bands)

Regular Jazz (fusion, B-Bop and sometimes big-band swing)

Blues (electric...acoustical every now and then)

Contemporary Gospel

Christian Rock

Old School Rap

Classic Rock

Smooth R&B

Country (contemporary)

Classical when I'm usually working at my desk (no opera though, for some reason I just can't get into it)

and when I really wanna chill, New Age Ambient

other than that, talk-radio, news, recorded lectures, debates and speeches.

Re: Favorite genre of music?

Hard core gangsta Polka

Umpoppa cap in you’re a$$

I am going to recycle that joke until someone thinks it’s funny
