I added an additional 'Anything that is actually good' category, as none of the others really catered for me. I don't have specific genre tastes when it comes to music, I just like anything that has quality to it - doesn't matter what kind of music it is.

Why I didn't think of that, I don't know. I guess it would depend on the film. I have heard some bad scores, but some good ones too.

I do have somthing to say about the anything that is good option. That's not really a genre, somthing that's good to one person sucks for another so if they pick that option, it tells you nothing.

Yeah... We want filmscores in the options list =D
For me, I listen to extreme technical progressive rock, and classic music. I can appreceite a lot of other music. But those two stand out for me. Listening to bands/composers like
- Dream Theater
- Muse (quite weird choice in this list, but I just love Matt's guitarwork)
- Frank Zappa
- Astor Piazzolla
- J.S. Bach
- Triumvirat (it isn't goth.. It's classic Progressive Jazzrock razz)

If someone knows any bands/composers that will suit my style. Please feel free to tell me.

That goes for all genres though.

My favorite artists are as follows (each from a different genre, seriously, so you can guess which option I chose):

Muse
Porcupine Tree
The Decemberists
Green Day
DJ Shadow
Buckethead
Iron Maiden
Basshunter
David Wise
Red Sparowes
VHS or Beta
Dropkick Murphys
Finntroll
Markéta Irglová
John Williams
Nightwish
DragonForce
Modest Mouse
The Offspring
Presh (seriously, I'm not just putting this because it's the music of an FXHomer)
Bob Marley
Led Zeppelin

^^Every single one of those is considered to be from a different genre, from Trip Hop to Troll Metal. I am an open person and like music if I like it. I know a lot of people who stick to weird underground dark rock, or they only listen to rap, and I just don't get it.

I have about eight favorite bands(in random order):

The Strokes
The Fratellis
Interpol
Franz Ferdinand
Arctic Monkeys
Motion City Soundtrack
The Futureheads
Modest Mouse

I'm not into hardcore rock, or any emo/screamo. I just like cool guitar riffs, and a good beat. I also, like a really unique voice. I know some people that hate Paul Banks(Interpol) or Julian Casablancas(The Strokes) because of their voices.

Well, I'd have to say that I prefer Rock over anything else; Hard, Classic, (some) Shock, etc. I'll listen to everything, though, but like my signature says:

92% of today's teens have moved on to rap...

I can hardly understand what they say, although one could say that you couldn't understand what they say in Rock...

Not really watch MTV or VH1 and do a rap/r&b vs. everything else. Atleast to me it seems like Rap/R&B beats everything else.

I vote anything as long as it's good. Music I've been listening to recently (in no order):

Daft Punk
Justice
The Shamen
Simian Mobile Disco
The Smiths
Linkin Park
LCD Soundsystem
A-Ha
Air
The Used
Andy C (drum n bass DJ)

So a fairly mixed bag, I'd say. I don't think I fit a particular style.

Not just that, but I get really pissed off when I read these, like some little kid is trying to sound deep. Frankly, I love rap music. And the whole fact that the sig doesn't consider rap "real music" is quite frustrating.

The line is always so hateful to me, and I wish people would stop with it. There's a lot of great rap out there, and even things you may consider idiotic or trivial without a real meaning behind the words- they're still entertaining- just as some of the ridiculous, nonsensical Fall Out Boy songs are. It's all relative, and I wish people would see that.

I'm partial to a mixture of things. In order of ranking, I like Michael Jackson, The Postal Service, Jay-Z, John Mayer, Men Without Hats, and others. But, quite obviously, I like a mix of things.

Yeah, that statistic is bull. I'm pretty sure most teens listen to both rock and rap. I just have a shallow taste in music. Most people say, "I like anything", when I'm the exact opposite. The genre/theme that I've found to have most of my bands in is called, "Post-punk revival". What that means, I have no clue, but most of the bands you saw me list are on there.

Rap is a style I'll never get into. I've pretty much narrowed it down to three things:

1. There are no guitars. I really dig guitars, and I love hearing them in my music.

2. I don't really listen to lyrics, and the most emphasized part of rap music is the lyrics. From the way I listen to music, I can play the instrumental parts of a song in my head, but all I hear as the vocals is, "nananaanananana". razz

3. The music itself is very repetitive. I swear, I want to stab the people that sing, "Ay bay bay! Ay bay bay!" in my school.

It isn't. It's a genre all its own, and that doesn't mean it's a bad thing (think poetry). I think what annoys people is the whole act that comes along with it, where you get black guys surrounded by women, talking like two year olds, with huge gold ornaments and pretending they're some kind of hero. Except for properly done, very high-end Rap, it's an extremely easy type of thing to create since there is no music and only words, and you're not looking for a particularly intellectual thing to say most of the time, which means that people look at rappers and it just... annoys them.

My appologies, Atom, but if it angers you so much, then simply don't read it. But believe me, I'm not "some little kid trying to sound deep". It is also only an opinion. Nothing more; I don't think that my signature speaks for every teenager in the world.

Just a note, for anyone who likes Hans Zimmer - the following is easily the BEST thing he's ever composed, ever:

I voted for anything that's good. But the genre's that I usually listen to are all forms of rock except for emo and metal, and I love electronica. Some of my current favorite bands right now are Daft Punk, Ratatat, and Depeche Mode. And although I usually cannot stand rap, I am really enjoying Kanye West's new album and especially his song "Stronger".

I'm going to second that.

My view on the rap genre:

For every day rap, I think it's horrible. I respect the fact that they can use words the way they do, but I hate ebonics and most of the lyrics, and the music is repetitive and head ache inducing. Most of the background music is a pre-existing beat or a poorly put together bit of music and isn't an important part o the song usually.

I have yet to find a rap song that I like, even what is considered "high end rap." I'm in the same boat as Pooky. I respect people's opinions though and can see why some people like "good rap," I just can't say the same. There is some music considered hip-hop that I like (DJ Shadow, that's really it...)

This is seriously, absolutely no different than a rockstar in many ways playing death metal or something to that extent. If rap/hip-hop/south-music isn't your taste, that's fine- but it is just as much music as everything else is.

It isn't fair at all to any of the musicians and entertainers out there to ignore it as "music" simply because you don't like or disagree with it, and that's really the only vibe or defense I get when I say things like this. Some stereotypical comment about it all.

You don't hear me attacking progressive rock or anything, why must people be so hateful simply to another genre of music?

And like I said earlier, I really like everything- don't take me to be a rap/hip-hop fanatic, but I respect it and respect it as "music". Just on the way home from some school thing I listened to 'The Good Life' by Kanye, 'Such Great Heights' by Postal Service, 'Rockstar' by Nickelback, 'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson, and ended with 'Heart of the City' by Jay-Z. To me, it was a perfect mix. For however much I like one genre or one style, I'm not complete without it all.

My collection is mostly rock (of all types) but I like a little of all music. I used to have the 92% of teens thing in my sig, but got rid of it because what I really hate about rap is the commercialized element of it, and I do like some some music with rap/hip-hop elements (Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda, Gnarles Barkley, Rage Against the Machine). I guess all genres have somewhat of a comercialized element, it just seems a lot more apparent in hip hop.

Today, hip-hop is better than most "rock" music.
That is NOT a made up statistic.

Ever since going through a week-long interdisciplinary "Hip-Hop 101" class with my old physics teacher (at my school, once a year we get to pick one week to take up a specialized class that a teacher can create) I have a newfound appreciation for rap and hip-hop; the former being the new, mindless but fun 'Dirty South' style, the latter a more in-tune, more philosophical rhythm about the troubles of society.

Anyone who doesn't like rap/hip-hop (if they can even be considered the same thing) should check out the following 'old school' artists:

-Tupac
-KRS One
-Ice T
-Dead Presidents (though it's REALLY racist)
-Notorious BIG

There are plenty more old school rappers that are great, and with a message, if these don't suit your fancy.

Some new school stuff to look into:

-KanYe West (I don't like him as a person, but to deny his rapping skills is crazy. Good songs are School Spirit, All Falls Down, Jesus Walks, Golddigger, Stronger, Homecoming, and plenty others)
-Common (just GREAT at the whole musical/message aspects of rapping.)
-Nas
-Jay-Z (not everything of his, but Kingdom Come is a pretty good album, as is The Blueprint)

I'm not asking anybody like hip-hop or rap, but don't condemn something or write it off as non-music unless you REALLY, REALLY give it a chance.

Much as i hate to admit it, (I really dislike rap and hip-hop, bring back disco :p) hes got a good point. Just cause we don't like it doesn't mean that we can call it not music.

In perspective - "[insert film here] is not a film because it is a [insert genra here] film!!!"

although it is a slightly skewed example, I think you get the point :p

Relient K
Switchfoot
All American Rejects (Kind of)
Newsboys
Neil Young
The Bourne Ultimatum Soundtrack
Some other bands...


I used to like Relient K but once I started listening to more secular bands like The Fall of Troy and Chiodos, I realized Relient K isnt that good... My opinion atleast.
Yeah, I see more and more people saying that these days about Christian bands. But, somehow, no matter how many secular bands I hear, Relient K seems to top them off...

Relient K is a band I used to hate but just not am starting to sort of like. I hate, hate, HATE "What Have You Been Doing Lately?" though.

God, I accidentally downloaded it with "Must Have Done", which is really good, and synced it up to my Zune, and now when it plays after Must Have Done it's so bad I have to shut the whole music player off just to get it outta my head. I thought I would like the song after reading the lyrics before hearing it, but the way they sing it is just awful. So obnoxious and jarring.

Agreed. I like the lyrics fine, but the song is just annoying. Easily their best album that I've heard though. Is the latest one any good?
Anywho, some bands/music I listen to:
Switchfoot (particularly some of the older stuff)
Hawk Nelson
FM Static (though some of their lyrics are a bit simple)
The Afters (doubt anyone's heard of them)
Sanctus Real
Skillet
Seven Places
House of Heroes
Any good orchestral stuff, particularly filmscores.

Really, I'm not too selective. As long as it's got good lyrics and/or a decent tune, I'll generally enjoy it. Typically, that excludes a lot of rap or hip-hop music, though I'm not opposed to the genres by principle.

Chiodos and My chemical Romance arnt emo.

Ok off the top of my head 3 My chemical Romance songs "Black Parade" yells "Carry on!" i dont know how many times. "Famouse last words" says "I'm not afraid to keep on living". And "Helena" says "Its better if I stay". That doesnt really sound emo to me.

And I listen to Chiodos everyday and havent ever heard any emo lyrics.

As for the other bands, I dont know.

MCR is almost the epitome of emo.

It's not about song names, it's a style. And MCR's style is definatley emo.

Well the way Pooky was saying all the bands KA listened to are emo rather he ment emo lyrics or the emo style, He labeled MCR and Chiodos emo and they def dont have the same style. And then that other guy said

Which made me think he was also talking about lyrics. Sorry for the confusion.

Erm. Also found in MCR songs:

"Because the drugs never work [...] They’re gonna rip up your heads, Your aspirations to shreds, Another cog in the murder machine"

"They could care less, As long as someone'll bleed, So darken your clothes, Or strike a violent pose, Maybe they’ll leave you alone, but not me"

"Mama, we're all gonna die. Stop asking me questions, I'd hate to see you cry"

"I said, ashes to ashes, we all fall down, We got innocence for days, Well I think I'm gonna burn in hell, Everybody burn the house right down"

And so on. Don't get me wrong though, I love MCR... but yeah don't kid yourself, it is Emo. Goth-ish Emo, but Emo.

Yeah I guess your right... I need to think a bit more before I post. But I know for a fact that Chiodos are not emo...

Hey, I just copied off myspace pages =/

But Linkin Park is not emo. They just aren't. Sure, some of their lyrics have emo(tional) content, but they do not have the sound or style.

The Beatles
Neutral Milk Hotel
The Desemberists
Rilo Kily
The Eels
Bright Eyes (I'm not emo, really)
Death Cab for Cutie
Harvey Danger
Pink Floyd
Radiohead

and a bunch of other stuff...

I've never been one to listen to the lyrics of any music I listen to with the exception of,say, Weird Al. I listen to the music.I like Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance for the most part. If they have emo lyrics or whatever I wouldn't notice.
