As far as what McGrugg was saying; I agree that a lot of people seem to need for MTV or Commercial Radio to validate a band as being cool before they are willing to give them a chance. Not enough people give independant labels a chance and assume that if a band is'nt on a big label or getting media coverage it must be because they're no good. But if you give local or independant bands a chance not only will you find some amazing bands that blow away 99% of commercial music, but you get much more personal feel when you see a band in a room full of say 300 people versus a arena with 30,000 or more. Following independant music has given me the privelege of seeing bands like Blink 182, Sum41, Less than Jake, MxPx, mighty mighty bosstones Dashboard confessional etc. before they hit the mainstream.
But at the same time i'm a selfish bastard who does'nt want to share his music anyways. I long for the days when I could get into the shows for my favorite bands without paying over $10. One of my favorite live bands was Flogging Molly, I go see them once and i'm blown away with how fun it was, then about 2 months later 107.7 The End (that stupid trendy music station MTV's Real World Seattle worked at) plays them and they come back shortly after and the lines are going around the block and I can't get in. But I am happy that at least people recognize their talent once they give them a chance.

I'm pretty certian that this will have been posted before but I'm curious because I'm new and couldn't finf a post like this in the past...though I may have overlooked it ¬_¬
But anyway, to the body of the topic:
What type of music do people listen to?
My favourite types of music are Metal...Gothic, Death Metal, Thrash, Speed Metal, Heavy Metal, thiungs like that. Bands under this category would be:
Cradle of Filth
System of a Down
I have a strong liking to J-rock as well, bands like:
Dir en Grey
I also like Anime music and J-pop...New Age music is good as well...and game music (especially Silent Hill OSTs)
What about everyone else? ^.^
