On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

I put 'other' because I don't really have a favourite 'genre'

I like a lot of blues and rock 'n' roll (both of which were missing from the survey) classic rock, metal, punk, indie, etc. pretty much anything with a distorted guitar really, but I also like a lot of acoustic 'folk' music too.

Shoulda made it a public poll so we can discriminate.

I had a bitch of a time choosing between metal and punk.

It's funny because bitches choose metal or punk

I couldn't pick one, so alphabetically (I'm going with subgenres too): bluegrass, dark ambient, drone, folk metal, funeral doom, outlaw country, and trance.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

A mix of these four honestly

Indie/ Emo/ Grunge/ Alternative
Punk/ Hardcore/ Screamo/ the other type of Emo... you know what I mean
Metal
Pop Punk


I couldn't pick between them since I listen to bands from all of them almost daily

Would've gone with anything "Progressive" but I picked metal, because most of it is and some of the music I quite like (e.g. Death//Doom) isn't strictly progressive.

Post-Rock isn't there, which is a genre I really like. I still really like Metal though, so I picked that. (Would've picked that anyway, but I would've clicked Post-Rock, if it was on there and there were multiple choices allowed.)

But progressive is more of a descriptor, in the same way that "indie" is a descriptor. It covers multiple genres. Still, as someone who also listens to a lot of progressive, I can see your point.

In the UK at least, Indie is actually quite a well defined genre in and of itself. Bands like Bombay Bicycle Club, early Foals and (try to think of an example an American will know) Arcade Fire are what we call Indie.

EDIT: Actually, Arcade Fire is an awful example. Vampire Weekend would be a much better one.

It's really the same in the US with indie. I have no clue where he got that from. And I should also make a note that progressive rock (when talking about bands like King Crimson, Yes, ELP, etc) is as an equally well defined genre in it's own right.

I guess that's my point. I don't care too much whether the music is acoustic, metal or both! I guess I think the 'descriptor' is the more important part of the genre name. After all, you might get a lot of people who assosciate themselves with jazz but don't care for smooth jazz etc...

*Patois.

Yeah I hate it when they do that. But sometimes it's just kinda instinctive.

Dammit, went with the wrong patois, stupid Indian Patwa.

Fair enough, just like, have a word at the next meeting and I'm sure everything will sort itself out.

I voted "metal", but don't actually like most of it subgenres. I can't stand "brutal" genres like black, death and metalcore (they do have fun riffs to play though). I like more melodic stuffs like classic, hair, gothic and power. Also hard rock, classic rock, AOR and bit of punk and grunge. Very few thrash and progressive songs.

I also like classic music and some acoustic stuffs.

I was mostly into west coast. And no.


I'd give you a 5/10 on the nasty n8 coolness scale.
Picking East coast would have given you an extra 2 points, listening to Big Pun would give you 3 more, and saying Southern Hip Hop would've given you 4.

I've tried to listen


Death Grips new album is the only rap album (I'm not even sure it's rap honestly. Just saying that before someone makes fun of me. ) I've heard in a few years that I've liked.


It just rarely ever appeals to me. I have nothing against it though.
