What do metalheads listen to when they're not listening to metal?

Page 1 of 15
Strange question I know, but I've found myself in sort of a musical rut recently. I've been lacking a lot of musical direction and been getting tired of my normal music, so I've been craving something that's different from what I normally listen to and will help inspire me to get some new ideas musically.

So what do all of you listen to when you're not listening to metal? What are your other personal favorites?
A bit of everything really - some older punk rock (non of the emo crap), elctronica a bit of dance a bit of ska occasionally or even pop

When I'm not listening to metal or classic rock, I'll probably turn to some electronica. Stuff like Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy.

But I'm not into the 4 hour long mixes some 12 year old threw together with the chipmunk voices and all that I try not to be closed minded, but some dance sucks real ass. I can't see how one can just beat match two records and call it new music.
Classical... mostly Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata 1st and 3rd Movements... Vivaldi's Winter 1st Movement... Summer 1st and third movements... hm... I love Bach's Toccatta and Fugue... Mozart's Requiem (Lacrimosa) .... not much really haha... occasionally System of a Down
They listen to EMO...especially when they got their earphones on. If it was really metal, they would already be blasting it.
Fender Strat
Genz.Benz Black Pearl 1x12
Teh Blues, mostly.
books have knowledge, knowledge is power, power corrupts, corruption is a crime, and crime doesn't pay..so if you keep reading, you'll go broke.

UG Profile
Stuff like Alice in Chains, STP, Pearl Jam, King Crimson...99% of the time I listen to metal though.
ambient or video game type music e.g. Diablo& diablo 2 type music
hard to explain but i like it
also classical
Classical... mostly Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata 1st and 3rd Movements

moonlight sonata= one of the best peices of music ever
Jazz/fusion (miles davis, frank gambale, django reinhart)
blues-rock (puppa chubby, jimi hendrix, ZZ top)
hard rock (van halen, led zep, deep purple, ac/dc)
prog rock (rush, king crimson, pink floyd)
classical (vivaldi, js bach, mozart, paganini...)
Rap (Eminem, NWA)

Mostly everything, except Pop, RnB, Techno, altern rock, grung and i can listen to just a few punk (sex pistols, minor threat, ramones) at very small doses ^^
the sounds of children being brutally slaughtered, then more black metal.

you shoulda lynched that nigger.

*spits in spittoon and feels up his cousin*
Red Hot Chili Peppers, some old-school hip-hop, some classical, Elliott Smith, and a little bit of punk.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Blues mostly. Good ole classic rock like Skynyrd, CCR, Nugent, Zeppelin, Lizzy. David Allan Coe, Hank Williams Jr. ive actually become fond of Down. I know they might be considered metal, but they have some very good slow southern stuff.

Everything else.

Precisely so... Well, I try artists when recommended to me. If I like it, I like it, y'know.

I try to keep an open mind in relation to music
Nobuo Uematsu, Dire Straits, R.E.M., Tears for Fears, Blue Man Group, Feeling (Native American band, really epic compositions, often found playing town centres).

Tbh, I don't listen to that much outside of metal, i'm open to other musical experiences but i'm busy trying to get to know the genre i'm listening to mostly better.

Blues, classic rock, hard rock, intrumental guitar albums of various styles, some electronic music (lately), some classical, some indie, some alt. rock, some Irish folk music, and a few comedy/parody type songs that my brother has on the computer.

But the vast majority of what I listen to is metal of some sort.

Classic rock, hard rock, grunge and britpop/madchester stuff. I like me alternative music too, Faith No More type stuff is nice.
For variety, I listen to Rush, Alice In Chains, Oasis, Thin Lizzy, The Yardbirds, The Stone Roses, Primus and Yes.
Grunge/Modern Rock, but none of the NEW NEW Stuff. By Modern Rock I mean Red Hot Chili Peppers and Smashing Pumpkins.

Also I love Classic Rock and Blues.
