I have been a headbanger since the late 70's/early 80's. Kinda gives you a clue as to my age. As I have gotten older I have opened up to other genre's such as SOME Country, classic rock, and some others.
To name a few of my fav bands I like to listen to are: Freedom Call (Love this band. And great singing Vihzel)), Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Fates Warning, Ronnie James Dio (R.I.P), and so many more. Never been much into grunge, thrash metal, or the death bands.
Vihzel there are some really good singers in metal. You just have to listen to the right bands. I always have preferred bands with guys that have a talent for singing. And good lead guitar work (R.I.P Randy Rhoads). Just my preference.

I happen to like Justin Beiber, think the kid is going to go far. He's good with the ESL students as well, for getting them to sing.

Well there are a few musical genres I listen to. Female vocals are preferred in most cases but male voices are not excluded. Any language is fine. If not understood, the voice becomes another instrument. So here we go: <3 symphonic metal / rock, various other metal, all forms of goth, industrial, techno, other electronic music, trance, punk, post punk, no wave, new wave, classical, <3 medieval and Celtic and Irish, country, bluegrass, Caribbean, reggae, Afro pop, traditional Chinese and Thai, South American, other world music, new age (a hated tag), some pop but female vocals are mandatory (luv Laura Branigan and not very poppy Polly Scattergood), individual instruments in various styles - harp, piano, <3 flute and violin, percussion (xylophones, marimbas, drums, etc.), guitars, <3 cellos and Irish bagpipes and hammered dulcimers, oboes, some classic rock but I'm kinda tired of it since bands like the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc. were new bands when I first heard them, a lot of indie / alternative from the '80s and '90s and some from this century. Have CDs, cassette tapes, and LPs of all the above.
Take away the music, better put me in a padded cell. Last.fm was the first app installed on the Esteem. And thanks to Last.fm I've developed a fondness for various genres of music by Russian artists.

I go through phases with music. My first music love was nineties rock of course, given my age.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
(old) Green Day
When I was a teenager and discovered metal, I listened to little else. Bands like these occupied all my time:
Type O Negative
Then I started getting into jam bands. The Dead, Rusted Root, String Cheese Incident, I would lose myself.
A bit more recently, I started downloading assorted jrock, wanting more music like the excellent Bleach theme songs. I somehow discovered my current obsession, Dir en Grey, an amazing Japanese metal band that takes my mind on epic journeys. I have been buying up their music like crazy on Google Music.
If I had to pick one kind of music only for the rest of my life though, it would have to be metal. Nothing else makes me feel as good.

I'm a dancer so I like to rock out to a lot of different styles.
House (all types), Jazz (all types), Underground Hip Hop (cant stand the radio stuff), Trip hop, 2-step, Metal, Grindcore, DnB (all types), Trance, Hard House/ Hard Style, Super Euro Beat (some of it is pretty catchy), J-pop/J-rock, 40's (I hate 50's music) 60's 70's 80's, Gabber, Rotterdam, Gopstyle, Soul/R&B, Classic, and yes Country (Boot scootin boogie is my ish.).
anything musical... sounds too general, but its true. I dont KNOW a lot of music, I'm not one of those guys that can name every sub-genre of every genre, but I can appreciate pretty much everything for its musicality.
I listen to quite a bit of music. I like just about all music, not to particular about country of today..
but i listen to.. Rock (all the different kinds) Metal ( all of them) Rap, Pop, Dubstep, Classical, older country, soul...
I don't really know the names of all the genres but I listen to quite a bit
Yikes, this is impossible for me to answer. I'm a huge music lover. Just discovered Girl Talk, and I'm really digging it. I'll listen to nearly anything. For my mainstays, it's mostly the indie stuff: Andrew Bird, Joanna Newsom, Bjork. I've gone through many fazes: grunge, punk, techno, metal, classic rock; love it all.
I enjoy every genre of music except for hardcore metal. To be precise, since I do like some metal as well, it's those songs where the singer would simply scream themselves hoarse. Not sure if it's more accurate to call it "screamo"? I'll usually be more annoyed at the difficulty in hearing what exactly they're trying to sing. That, and usually I dislike the lyrics.
i always care for music i'm listening to. For me it's not just "hear-enjoy" stuffs. I always look after the lyrics, is it useful or at least entertaining positively. As another options, its always safe for me to go with instrumental music, especially solo guitar like steve vai, joe satriani, eric johnson, andy timmons or even paul gilbert.
Tons of poppunk (the story so far,transit,title fight,citizen,blink182) a lot of hardcore (rock bottom,terror,sworn enemy,cold world,cruel hand,old ceremony,converge,swamp thing etc.),still occasionally listen to deathcore, and a lot of jazz,indie,alternative
The list goes on....
Generally i like to listen fast music and this is from my favorite albums because i am feeling fresh to my self after listen the fast music anyways this is my choice and what is your's choice would you like to tell me here....
Really, it depends on my mood. If you look at the collection in my CD player (5 disc changer) you'll see the following: Wumpscut, She Wants Revenge, Metallica, Alien Ant Farm, and 311.
I tend to vary my music by my mood, like I said earlier. From Rise Against, to Gackt, to CCR, and many more. If I were to list all the bands I like, I'm pretty sure I'd reach the post text limit (if there is one) quite easily.
Anybody here listen to country music? I'm not talking Taylor Twitt trash either just good down home country music. Some of my heroes would be billy Joe shaver, waylon Jennings,Willie nelson and a whole slew of others.
