At The Drive-In.

I basically don't like any of that punk/hardcore stuff, but any band with Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez is good in my books.

I don't have a "main genre" really.....I listen to my modern rock, metal and classic rock pretty evenly. I guess the next thing would be classical.

I don't really have a main genre. If anything, my main genre would be "music that involves guitar". With that said, my favorite music outside of that genre would be the occasional rap song.

Punk Rocker
03-20-2006, 11:43 PM
i usually listen to punk but outside of punk my fav is prolly classic rock, mainly van halen, AC/DC, led zeppelin, and cream. Thee was also this heavy band with some weird vocalist doing falcetto shrieks that i kinda liked.

I don't know what my 'main' genre is.......

I guess I'll say metal, because at the moment all of my favourite bands are metal.

Outside of metal, my favourite band is either Thrice or Alkaline Trio.

I list to Metal, Rock, and Punk about equaly, so I don't really have a "main genre". A few artists that I listen to outside these 3 genres are Tech N9ne, Michelle Branch, Cascada, Mariah Carey, and The Pussycat Dolls.

I listen to songs based on my mood. Somedays, Techno does it for me. Other days I only wanna hear Jack Johnson music, other days I only wanna hear punk music. it all depends on my mood (however, I usually stick my iPod on random and just get a feel for whatever)

I listen to a lot of Daft punk but i detest Acid house and **** like that where the bass just goes Boom-boom-Boom-Boom cos it sounds like Robots having sex.

Main genre = Modern Rock

skeptopotamus
05-31-2006, 04:35 PM
I rarely listen to classic rock anymore these days, so I guess when I pop one of those in it'd be outside my main genre. These days I'm usually listening to metal, folk, roots, or bluegrass, so I'm covering quite a wide spectrum.
CCR
Led Zeppelin
Pink FLoyd
Wu Tang Clan
Anti Flag
Unseen
El Vez
Total Science
etc..

Surfpunks.

I don't know if any of you guys have heard of them, but my dad took out a vinyl he had of them and played it the other day. Pretty sweet.

I can honestly say I don't have one dominant genre.
Well, if you want to be technical, you could say "rock" to encompass everything from the earliest rock n' roll artists of the 50's and everything that grew from it.

But I listen to pretty much equal parts electronica, rock (though probably a minor bias this way), hip-hop and jazz. And countless crossovers. I see no rational reason to limit myself to one type of music over all else.

I usually listen to death/black/doom metal etc. but I have a super soft spot for pink floyd, the who and alotta punk.

My love for floyd was just reinforced by seeing Roger Waters at Hyde Park Calling... Beautiful show.

FadingRoots
07-09-2006, 02:04 PM
Offspring, Smash Mouth, and some ****ty 90's pop stuff (Eve 6, Sugar Ray)

I would say my main genres are anything made before '89.
