I'm not just talking about discovering new music or going through a 'phase'.
I'm talking really changing and not going back. I find most of the music I liked when I was very little I can still to a degree enjoy today. Or I can see why I was so into it.

EDIT: Didn't mean this thread to be similar to the 'Turning points in your musical taste' thread.

If you like a certain thing about certain music. How has that 'thing' changed. Despite the genre or bands you may or may not have heard of at that point.

i still like the same music i liked when i was younger, i listen to a lot of different bands now and the only reason i dont listen to my old favorites is because my library is more vast than it was and the chance of listening to them is smaller, but i still like most of the artists i liked before.

EDIT: the only thing that changed are the presets on my car which are now mostly jazz stations, cause fast jazz music is the shit when youre driving

I used to only like old school metal, now I've gotten into hardcore and house quite a bit, and found my favorite metal subgenres.

I used to thin the Jonas Brothers were the shit at 12 -brace myself for imminent E-Slap-
thank god for my friends exposing me to metal. at first it was just the old stuf Like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica. Then About a year ago I started listening to current stuff like AX7, BFMV, 5FDP, etc. Now I'm a true metalhead, I loath the Brothers.

NOTE: One thin that hasn't changed is my love of classic rock. The Beatles, Deep Purple, AC/DC. Love 'em all. If it weren't for them we wouldn't have rock or metal.
Have a good one,

That's pretty much the thread I think.

The only band I really still listen to that I listened to back when I was like, 11, is Pink Floyd, and that's because they are probably the greatest band evar. Back then, besides Pink Floyd, I listened to basically Green Day, Blink 182, and on a more positive note, Nirvana.

So, yeah I'd say my music taste has changed. Used to listen to Pop Punk, now I listen to more progressive and psychedelic stuff, like MGMT, Animal Collective, Pink Floyd (still), King Crimson, Tool, Between the Buried and Me, Nektar, The Mars Volta, etc. The only band I still listen to that is even kind of pop punk is Brand New, and I don't really like their more pop punk stuff, the only album of theirs I can really listen to in full is Daisy.


EDIT: And I used to hate rap and hate any music with growling vocals, and I like (some) rap now, and I like (some) bands with growling vocals. Still don't like overuse of screaming vocals though.

I mean, screaming every once and a while for effect is fine (think Grass by Animal Collective, if you've heard it, when he screams "HOW NOW HOW NOW" for a while), but bands like Dillinger Escape Plan that constantly scream all the time (besides Black Bubblegum and Mouth of Ghosts, I those songs) and ruin otherwise brilliant songs, I just don't like.

Oh, and I don't listen to nearly as much classic rock as I used to. I used to be a bit of an elitist a couple years back.

The only things that I used to listen to that I can't stand anymore are Simple Plan and hair metal.

I know I liked Simple Plan because it appealed to 12-15 year olds, but I can't seem to figure out why I ever liked hair metal.

i started out listen to elvis, bon jovi, then yellowcard and fall out boy, then metallica and i was like "WOAH" so i only listened to metal for a while. now im getting into punk
#21
Very rarely do I come across any music that I just stopped liking. All that brutal/technical/melodic death metal still has a special place in my heart.

edit: A lot of the anarcho-punk stuff is too retarded for me now though.

Used to be into a lot of punk/screamo when I was younger, then slowly that evolved into a lot of classic rock. During that time I got way into Pink Floyd, which pretty much shaped my music taste to how it is now, as I don't listen to punk much at all and classic rock rarely, except for pink floyd.

Now I listen to mainly post-rock, jazz, ambient/electronic music, and new age/solo piano, with a good deal of classical, and a bit of hard-rock, prog-rock, and ska.
#23
I started of with pop rock and stuff. Then went into older stuff, like AC/DC, KISS, and some hair metal. I'm into punk and ska now, I don't want to grow out of it.

It has definitely changed for me. Rock music inspired me to study music seriously, but in the last few years, I have almost completely abandoned it in favor of classical. Now I study and listen to classical music almost exclusively.

A lot of the ideas and practices I used to love about rock music, I now reject. For example, I used to admire progressive metal for how imaginative and expansive it was. But in studying composition, I've found that a truly effective piece of music relies on one or two ideas that are then fully explored. With the endless varieties in riffs and sections in a progressive song, I now only hear a lack of unity and development, with every idea falling short before they finish. And even more overarching, the texture of rock music now sounds one dimensional because almost everyone approaches it from a homophonic perspective. I'm now adjusted to listening to polyphonic music and keeping track of multiple lines at the same time. So when I hear just a blanket of chords with a melody on top, it is a little boring. I still respect rock music for what it is, but I have moved on.

...modes and scales are still useless.

1. I play covers and originals at my church, no matter what the lyrical content which brings me to...

2. The Jonas Brothers? Good God, man... They're an affront to music itself...

I wouldn't sat it changes, but it expands. I still like the stuff I've always liked, but I get into new stuff every now and then.
#29
Back when I was 13-14, if it wasn't "hard" and "heavy" rock or metal then, as far as I was concerned, it was shit music for gays... *shudders at memory of past dickheadness*

Now I like electro, dub, dubstep, classical, traditional, indie, rap and hip-hop as well

I wouldn't say my tastes have ever changed drastically, I still sometimes listen to what I listened to at 12 or 13, but my listening horizons have expanded dramatically.

I used to be into a lot of what you could call emocore bands (A Static Lullaby, etc.) and now I can't listen to it at all. But other then that my music taste has only broadened.

All the time, it's kind of annoying.

Mine doesn't change completely. It expands, rather than changes. I still like the same stuff I did when I was 10 years old, but I've found more to enjoy since then.

A lot of stuff I never got into, and probably never will.

Came here with a epiphone g400, left with a Martin d-15s.

I like acoustic mostly. Fingerpicked sorta stuff.
