    As some of you may have seen from the "What Are You Listening To" thread I have a pretty diverse taste in music. I listen to hip-hop, R&B, soul, neo soul, hard rock, metal, alternative rock, grunge, classic rock, trance, techno, classical, and country. Maybe there's a few more I haven't listed but I like to listen to all types of music pretty much.

    What kind of music do you guys listen to?

    I generally stick to R&B, classic rock, alternative rock, grunge, any genre related to electronic (trance, techno, etc..) but also sometimes hip-hop although I must admit new hip-hop is absolutely terrible with very very few exceptions to a few songs/artists.

    Agreed about new hip-hop although there's some exceptions. One guy I've been listening to lately is XV. I like his stuff and he's under the radar. It seems like once rappers hit the mainstream they sell out to the fame and money. I use to like Lil Wayne back in the old days before he exploded with this whole Young Money and rock experimentation crap. Same is going to happen to Drake, don't know why he signed with Young Money. Right now hip-hop actually has some hope compared to the past, lots of young blood. J. Cole, XV, Cudi, and Big Sean are just a few. There's also Jay Electronica, Charles Hamilton, Joell Ortiz, etc. I think you might like an artist called Blu. Check him out.

    Listen to the album Below the Heavens by Blu & Exile

    I'm a very mainstream kind of person, which isn't bad! I like pop, pop/rock, pop/r&b, basically... anything pop. I also like r&b, rock, foreign music (Korean, French, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Spanish), Asian folksy music, classical music, the absolutely spectacular works from Joe Hisaishi (he has made the soundtracks to Miyazaki movies), and umm... some other genres too.

    One thing that I can't stand is autotune. I understand if it is used ONLY as a simple effect or a small correction on a few notes, but when artists use it ALL the time... it is extremely annoying. I can't stand listening to robots. Artists like Ke$ha, T-Pain, Lil' Wayne, and others like them... awful. Something that I really like about country is that autotune hasn't really penetrated as much as pop, especially pop, and artists still have to know how to sing to succeed in that genre. I still don't really like listening to country music though, only a few select artists that have a country + pop feel.

    I'm really into prettymuch every sub-genre of rock and metal. I actually got my first Android product just for music. It's an Archos 5 Internet Tablet 500GB. I got it so I could have all my music with me all the time and run simple last.fm scrobbler in the background. It runs Android 1.6, I think they called that one Donut. It's the perfect mp3 player and great for movies too.
  6. I'll listen to almost anything. Mostly rock and pop, though. I spent tonight at work alternating between SLOT, Dommin, Ke$ha, and Rammstein.

    I didn't mean all mainstream artists, I just implied the bad ones like you mentioned :p

    I myself can't listen to hardcore/true country music.

    Oh I didn't even know about your little comment on mainstream artists until this. lol I was like "What is he talking about?" hehe.

    +1 for not being able to listen to hardcore music. I'm assuming you mean like heavy metal, death metal, and such, right? I can't stand people screaming at me in person, so I definitely will not pay to listen to people scream at me with a little tune. lol

    Yeah death metal is one and screamo is another lol. I think there's only one semi-screamo song I like but then again I've never really made a conscious effort to listen to the genre. I just don't want someone screaming the entire song.

    I like most music, as long as it's not the X Factor/Justin Bieber style pop.

    Mostly metal/hard rock. Killswitch Engage and Tool are quite possibly the best bands around right now. But I listen to all different kinds except for hip hop/rap, some of the older stuff was good but the new crap is just horrible. I could care less how many houses, cars and gold chains these douches have and that seems to be all they sing about.

    Anyways, some examples: NIN, old Manson, Metallica(Black albumn and back), Tori Amos, Amon Amarth, As I Lay Dying, old country(when it was still country), System, Lady Gaga, Trance/House techno, Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium, Foo Fighters, Black Tide, H.I.M. and many many more.
