I like country because it reminds me of simpler times. It's also killer when you're drunk.

I like country because just like most genres if you give it a chance you'll find stuff you like in it and stuff you don't like. Although I poop my pants in fear when death metal comes on so it doesn't apply to all situations.
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

The Pit operates under a pseudo-Murphy’s Law state of mind. You can make a comment and "whatever wrong assumption that can be made about it, will be made about it."

I like power metal for its epicness.

I think most people like music based on the environment they either live in, want to live in, or strongly appreciate, along with their perception of said environment.

I notice most reasons for people liking country doesn't actually have anything to do with country music at all. I could write funk songs about fishing, and being on the lake, and beating my wife/sister and it would achieve the same purpose, except sound better.

****ing plebs.

I like funk because of the aggressive highly syncopated rhythms, the willingness to go a little outside the lines of comfortable tonality and simply the energy much of it has. Can I relate to being a black urban youth in early 70's Detroit? No, so for me to say something about liking a style of music because it somehow arbitrarily relates to my life experience would be utterly ******ed and give off the impression that I have the IQ of a goldfish, drive a Chevy truck and date a fat "cosmotologist."

I will give the exception for specific songs that remind you of specific events/people/moment.

I like punk because I grew up during it's creation. The raw energy and emotion in it reaches down the front of my pants and rummages around for a while.

Why wouldn't I like it?

I enjoy drone-based music because of the timbre and subsequently texture formed by different sources of the tones, but also for the emotion that can be held in the subtlety of a minimalist approach. Drone doom seems to be able to entice emotion in slow, stumbling progressions which reinforce themselves with each repetition; a simple melody fusing with a looming atmosphere to create absolutely hypnotic, crushing progressions (and if it's live, even better). In ambient or orchestral based works it's even more to do with texture and the subtle variances in the technique which each instrument utilizes, each coming in and out of play to weave an intricate ambiance. Like noise, I find myself listening to different layers present.

Or maybe they just like how it sounds...(Seriously, applying "environment" argument to music is SO pretentious...)

No, it isn't. Look into the semantics of a word before using it. The artistic environment in which you are raised in has a great affect upon your tastes. If someone's lived in the country most of their life and doesn't have as much experience with, say, metal, their perception of it relative to what they're fundamentally used to and fond of is key. Furthermore from a less global perspective, you often have to be in the right mood for some music. Which is also a factor which relates to it.

Simply saying "I like how it sounds" is no reflection of actual enjoyment other than a basic begging-the-question fallacy. Explore in yourself why you like something. What qualities do you like which are specific to the genre? And what emotional ties do you have to an artist or scene?

For some reason I recall a time when TS said that he likes country but it turned out that he only listens to shitty pop country. I don't remember if that actually happened though.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I like metal because it's a good way for me to get rid of pent up aggression. I like prog and the like because I enjoy mentally following melodies and rhythms that are not necessarily intuitive or simple.

There's something incredibly satisfying about following a really angular melody or a series of odd time signatures, haha.

i like metal because it has a seriousness that is lacking in most modern music; it has an atmosphere that is both worldly and spiritual, that seeks the transcendent and the marvelous; it has values, values that are not commonplace values of weakness.

I used to like metal because I was a huge fag, but now I just like jazz because it makes me appear more sophisticated and just like a guy that likes his females to have their breasts covered in fur instead.

I like rap because it helps me with poetry and English and it builds a bigger vocabulary. Real rap like Potluck, Dirtball, Tech n9ne, Eminem, Hopsin and whatnot. Not whats on the MTV charts
