What Styles of Music do you listen to?

A previous thread has been closed for some song listing stuff, I didn't see any other thread 'bout general music, so let's go.
Don't forget no to make any listing, just tell us your styles, and some examples of groups, artists or deejays may be tolered, I think.
If the thread encounters the forum's rules, please tell me, I'd delete by myself.

Music is a great part of my life, I can't stand working or even playin without listening to my favourites tracks. I'm able to play my tracklists (Bored to change the CDs in the Hi-Fi, but...) for several hours without breaking, all day long.

Mostly, I listen to Trance, Hardstyle and Jumpstyle (Jumpstyle is mostly a Nightclub music, Europeans only can understand, from Nothern France, Belgium, Germany or Holland...)
I also like Hardcore (Not the Rock Hardcore, the Electro Hardcore. )
Sometimes I give me a break with some easy-listening music, like Anna Nalick, Sarah McLachlan, stuff like that, ore even some Classical music (Barber, Vivaldi, Carl Orff...)
I adore Rammstein and Oomph!, two german Hardrock/Metal groups. They're impressive and have a different style from other rock bands.
(Plus I'm fond of Fate/Stay Night & Noein OST! )

In the past we've had similar sorts of threads and they invariably turn into rather pointless list only posts.

The purpose (or at least the intent) of this thread is to discuss what type and style of music you enjoy and listen to. As Vanta has already stated, it's not just limited to anime music, it's music in general under discussion (hence the thread is located in the General Chat forum and not the Music forum).

Please remember: this is for fun. Don't take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a style of music you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter is always welcome, but harassing people won’t be tolerated.

In addition, please do not post lists If you do, then chances are the entire post will be deleted. This is a discussion thread, so discuss please follow the example of the opening post and try and add substance to what you post.

Hah, Vanta... your musical preference is totally different than mine. But I guess that's the amazing thing about music huh! I will agree with you on one thing tho - there's no way I can go through a day without listening to some type of music. It definitely is a huge part of my life.

In terms of my favorite music, I mostly lean towards listening to different styles of modern rock.

My favorite musical genre is probably a pop/punk kind of sound. Bands that I usually listen to associated with this genre include Hit The Lights, Mayday Parade, Relient K, Boys Like Girls, All Time Low, Run Kid Run, and THEAudition.

I also really enjoy listening to some of the lighter screamo bands. As long as I can tell what they're saying, it's probably good enough for me haha! Some of my favorite screamo bands include AFI, The Almost, and Saosin. I suppose you could also label 30 Seconds to Mars as a screamo band.

I also like some stuff I label as alternative rock (these are the ones I'm too lazy to clump into something more specific lol). Some of my bands that I throw in that genre are Novice, The Ataris, Madina Lake, and Motion City Soundtrack.

And I also like some acoustic stuff.. I generally just clump all of that into a emo music genre haha (in other words, the lyrics are that good that they can invoke some pretty strong emotions). Bands that I listen to in this little genre of mine include Making April, Dashboard Confessional, Copeland, and Secondhand Serenade.

So yeah, that's a few of my favorite musical genres in a nutshell ^.^

I think the reason I listen to those bands in general is because I can relate with so many of the songs at this point in my life. There are some times where I'll feel really happy and pop in a upbeat pop/punk song and jam away to it, or other times where I'll be feeling pretty down and I'll pop in something a little slower so I can see that other people feel that way too. At least that's my reason for why I listen to what I do. Not to mention I think it sounds really cool! Haha.

NOTE: I'm not too good on the whole genre deal, many of my genres overlap. So don't flame too much if ya disagree with some of em haha :X

I take a few alternative rock bands, both English and Japanese, including The Fray, The All-American Rejects, Franz Ferdinand, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Mr. Children (Japanese).

J-rock over J-pop. Favorite J-rock artists include The Pillows, Kaela Kimura, and High and Mighty Color. For J-pop, I listen to Ayumi Hamasaki and whatever good single pieces I come across (right now, Crystal Kay's music is good).

I tried to listen to Techno, but I haven't found a band to my liking yet. Trance and nightclub music in general has made my head hurt, so I stayed away from that. I prefer stuff with nice melodies, and so far, only DARUDE's Sandstorm satisfied me for techno.

But my biggest genre is lodged in metal. I listen to mostly thrash metal, speed metal, power metal, and melodic death metal. Bands I listen to a lot include, in no particular order, Sonata Arctica, Into Eternity, Scar Symmetry, Dark Tranquility, Symphony X, Devin Townsend, Strapping Young Lad, Overkill, Black Sabbath / Heaven and Hell, and Dream Theater.

Yeah...nobody in real life has ever expected me to listen to metal. The moment they snatch my headphones and put them on they come right off and I get a really long stare. Now top that with the fact that I listen to some really squeaky J-pop.

I also can't take hip-hop, R&B, and rap. Thing about me is I can't listen to anything without lots of instrumental melodies going on, and the three mentioned have none of that.

I can handle various styles of music. My favorites being alternative rock and trance. I used to listen to hard rock back in my high school years because the morning DJs were so funny. But after they left the station and started playing the same 70s and 80s Jimi Hendrix and Metallica, I got bored and started seeking new songs. Alternative rock is where I found what I was looking for. Soft rock just puts me to sleep. -_-

Whenever I browse the intraweb, at work, or at play, I'm always listening to an alternative rock radio station on the web. My favorites being the one from 181.fm. Some favorite bands of mine:

Dynamite Hack
Panic! at the Disco
Rage against the Machine (welcome back!)
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Trance has the beats I like to listen to when I'm in a party mood. I dunno how anyone (around my age) can not like trance. = O It's just really good at keeping you awake doing homework and whatnot.

Given what I've stated, you can kind of guess what kind of Japanese songs I like to listen to. But it's not like I'm a constant headbanger. I enjoy some slow songs, some mushy songs, some gregorian chant. Perhaps the only thing I cannot stomach is Hip Hop / R&B. Weird, huh?

As to what styles of music I listen to... I think the only thing I can do about that question is answering what styles of music I don't listen to. I can't stomach Hip-Hop at all. The darker and noisier variations of metal hurt my ears, though I do enjoy listening to "lighter" versions of it, like power metal, or like some things of folk metal I've been listening to lately. Trance/Electronica and the like put me nervous.

Everything else works fine for me. I do have a special liking for rock (though I hate most of the modern western rock), indie J-pop (I can stomach the cheesy popsugar one, but only so far), and jazz. My all-time favorite band is U2.

I like a lot of different styles of music.

In High School I listened to Goth stuff, like Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Magazine, or Nico. Sometimes I would listen to Ambient music, like Brian Eno, Popul Vuh. I also liked some Prog, like Yes and Be Bop Deluxe.

I got bored of contemporary music in the mid-80s, and started listening to Jazz, like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis' Cool style, or Bossa Nova, like Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto.

By the late-90s I was listening to Classical Guitar, like Heitor Villa Lobos, Julian Bream. I also started getting into the ECM label Jazz stuff (Jan Garbarek, Oregon), and some Folk fusion (Pentangle).

The thing that brought me back into contemporary music was Trip-hop (Portishead, Moloko).

I like a lot of other styles as well, but one of my favorites is 70s Prog, which seems to continually offer new discoveries (Slapp Happy, Henry Cow, Comus, Camel, Gong, Soft Machine, National Health, PFM ...).

Some of my favorite Anime music: Azumanga Daioh OST, RahXephon OST, and, of course, Yoko Kanno.

I totally agree with Vanta:

I love J-Pop only when it is sang by cute young and (likely) horny girls. Mucic is okay but as disposable as any other american hits.

I like experimental music because its usualy different then what our ears are used too.

I also like sad but profound Rock music like Delgados or Radiohead.

Anything that is lyricaly evolved gets my attention first.

Oh my God, how could I forget about her? I am of the serious opinion that she's the best musician alive.

I like to listen to power metal and most other types of metal. I can't stand stuff like Cannibal Corpse though, too weird.

Besides that I can listen to anything besides country and a certain degree of rap.

This is almost exactly what I was about to type. I was just going to pick slightly different adjectives. Clearly WanderingKnight is an upstanding person of formidable intelligence. The fact that he agrees with me is unarguable proof.

The only difference in my statement would be that some older hip-hop, from when it was actually MUSICAL is to my taste. A few hip-hop producers carry that torch, but not most.

Music-wise I'm a fan of anything with a good beat. I mostly listen to J-pop, and new music from HK. Im a fan of Euro-trance, Music like 6-strings, Sammy, Chem-brothers, Rockell and the such. Not too big a fan of Hip-Hop, too overrated IMO, will listen to country but I hate the song that actually use honky-tonk in the lyrics ie. Dolly Parton, and groups like Brooks and Dunn. Definitely cannot bear Goth and Satanic, or cult music, such as Marilyn Manson's, and or Ozzy Osborn's work. Something about being so Goth freaks me out. Dunno maybe its my stereotyping of people.

Edit i just had to make it point that I dislike the one's in bold
