Thread Starter 
I like classical: Beethoven,Bach,Mozart.
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal: Disturbed,Godsmack,Evanescance,ETC.
Classic Rock: Metallica,Aerosmith,Def Leopard ETC.
I also like Jewel and Celine Dion.
I dont like any rap (except alittle of the freestyle from 8mile movie). There are only 2-3 country songs I can tolerate.
Oh and I like music in other languages like Irish.

What about you??

I like oldies and country music.

My all-time favorite song is "As Time Goes By", from Casablanca and my favorite album is Carole King's "Tapestry". Over the years, I've worn out a couple of vinyl albums, an eight-track tape and a few cassettes. NOW, I have it on CD.

Well, my all time favorites are Nine Inch Nails and Rosetta Stone (goth band). But I have very ecclectic taste overall. I listen to country at work, grew up on 80s metal/glam, like a lot of the newer metal/rock, like Broadway tunes, classic rock, even *some* pop. The only things I don't like are rap and hip hop.

I'm a lover of all music! It's definitely my passion in life!
I mostly enjoy Country (it's much easier to sing to!, but do enjoy Alternative, Pop, 80's rock, 80's glam, disco (not too much, but have some specific songs I love), Classic rock, very little rap (I do enjoy Kid Rock, mainly cuz he's more rock than rap) and 50's oldies.

I don't care for Classical and Goth (Sorry Heidi!).

Right now, I'm totally addicted to 3 Doors Down! I just can't seem to get enough of their song "When I'm Gone". I swear it spins in my head all day long!

I listen to a lot of stuff, but mostly classic rock and stuff from the 60's, 70's and 80's. I have about 3000 music files on the computer, which has been my stereo ever since Napster hit the scene

All time favorite band is Led Zeppelin.

I love most music, but I don't really like country, rap, or top 40 type music.

My all-time favorite band is U2. I absolutely love them. I also like the Beastie Boys, Linkin Park, Creed, Godsmack, Dido, Sting, The Cure. I prefer alternative music, and love a lot of the 80s new wave I grew up with. Also Motown, 50s rock n roll, jazz, big band, and some classic rock like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Doors and the Rolling Stones. And of course, the Beatles.

I also love classical, especially Mozart and Tchaikovsky.

I like a wide variety of's not so much the genre, but whether I find something in the music that touches me.

Classical-Holst's "The Planets" (my favorite is "Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity"), Beethoven's 9th, Baroque music

80's music-What can I say, I was in high school/college during the 80's. My favorite two groups are the Police and New Order. I also love the Communards and They Might Be Giants.

Rap-De La Soul, TLC. I even like some of Eminem's work ("Without Me").

Metal-Metallica, KMFDM, Nitzer Ebb (sp?), Evanesence (I just got their CD and I LOVE it).

Celtic rock/Celtic traditional-Wolfstone, Brother, Seven Nations, Glenngary Bhoys, Altan, Clannad, the Chieftans.

Hmmmm.... I'm an 80's chic but I love 70's, too.

I'm sure I'll think of more

I listen to rockabilly, and progressive country mostly, but I love blues, classical, and classic rock. If anybody is considering satellite radio, I highly recommend it. There are 100 dedicated channels, so you can listen to your kind of music all the time, instead of having to listen to 10 songs you don't like, just to hear one that you do. You also get to hear the stuff you usually won't hear on clear channel radio.
Some of my favorites---
Social Distortion
Webb Wilder and The Nash Vegans
The Reverand Horton Heat
Brian Setzer (with his big band, or his trio)
Robert Earl Keen
Guy Clark
Emmylou Harris
Southern Culture On The Skids
It depends on my mood what I listen to. I hate rap, hip hop, pop, and pop country.

Are you ok?! How did your surgery go?
post #14 of 29
I'm only 13! So It's pretty obvious I'm not going to like, 80's music and stuff ..LOL

I'm an absoulute fan of ELVIS though. He truly is the king and I have most of his songs on tape. And I have many Newspaper articles on him. I love his music and can totally relate to his songs.

My Fav. band all time is Blue. And I enjoy Evanensece(sp?)

I'll think of some more and then come back and write them

I like almost everything (listen to mostly country right now though), even some rap (I don't like the rap with nasty language, Will Smith is good though).

I've got some killer tunes in German and Russian from my college days.

And then there's Louis Lesther with "Deshabille Moi". LOL

Lots of different stuff plays on my stereo- Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Linkin Park, Disturbed, - then theres Sum 41, Simple Plan, and Jimmy Eat World, and heres where it gets weird- I also like Insane Clown posse and Eminem

I love music- its a huge part of my life. I'm trying at the moment to locate a second hand drum set so I can learn. My best friend and I want to start a 'chick band ', shes learning bass and another friend of mine is pretty good on guitar. The world needs a really cool chick punk band

My thoughts exactly!! I think I would be unable to speak if I ever actually met him. He is someone I truly admire, and lust after, too. I've been listening to U2 since the mid 80s. I love how they keep reinventing themselves. Can't wait for their new CD, and tour. They are so amazing live, I really want to see them again, several times if I have the money and the time.

That is a great picture Sicy. He is so hot, I am so jealous.

My favorite all around band (joining the crowd) is U2 as well!
I like most forms of music except blues and gospel.

I have to confess though that my favorite form of music is
opera. Living in NYC, I've had the luck to be able to see some
outstanding performances (and performers). I also have about
250 opera recordings.

Never one to be consistent however, I've recently developed a secret
fondness for Eminem. Go figure!

My favorite band is The Alkaline Trio. Some of my other 'most listened to' include The Slackers, The Pietasters, Brandtson, Billy Idol, Dashboard Confessional, and Jimmy Eat World. I love music. One of the best times of my life were the 3 horribly hot, sticky days at Woodstock '99! Live music is the greatest thing, IMO... I've been to nearly 100 shows since I was 12 years old!

I feel the same way. There is truly no other band on the planet that moves me like they do.

I never met them though Just got pretty close at a couple concerts. I have friends that have met him or members of the band. So jealous...
