POLL: HOW OLD IS "YOUR" MUSIC - Page 2

post #31 of 57
I listen to Top 40 and probably always will. I wonder how old I'll be when I stop liking current music? It's weird to think about. I like older music, and different music, but the majority of the time I'm listening to pop/top 40.

I listen to a plethora of music. Grew up with (80's) Metal - pop metal, hair metal, thrash metal...all of it! So of course I still like that, except where the vocals are more growling than singing. Went to college in Nebraska and got into Country, so I can listen to that. Earl has some techno stations on the Sirius radio in the car, so I am getting used to and liking that too. Oh yeah, and goth/darkwave & industrial too. All of these from 80's to current.

My favorite band is NIN, which I guess would fall in the metal/industrial area.

Amen to that!!

Although I would hesitate to put post-hair-cut Metallica in anything but the "corprate sell-out" category. Their old stuff, on the other hand, is great.

My BF refers to those bands as "cookie monsters", because the singers sound like the Cookie Monster. hehe

Cookie Monsters! I love it!!

And I totally agree with you about Metallica. Of all the bands who could have come out against Napster...the band who got signed because of COPIED (not bought) tapes making their way across the country does it. I lost all respect for them. Good thing I saw them twice in 1988-89 on the ...And Justice For All tour!

I agree with Metallica on the napster issue.

Why Metallica Sued Napster


"At this moment, all around the world, hundreds of thousands of people are breaking into record stores and stealing CDs and tapes. Or they might as well be."

"Metallica has challenged Napster not only because they are outraged that their recordings are being duplicated and distributed without their consent. Metallica also wants to support the many less prominent artists who are unable to fight Napster or any other corporation trying to undermine their art and well-being. Thousands of artists depend on record royalties to survive, to support their families and to create more new music. Napster takes royalties from these artists. It shouldn't come as a surprise that most musicians can keep going only if people actually buy their music, as opposed to getting it free from Napster -- and for every wildly successful band like Metallica, there are thousands of artists who are barely able to get by. Left unchecked, Napster threatens the livelihood of every writer and musician. And except for the most established artists, Napster will also eliminate the funding from record labels needed to pay the significant costs of making and marketing new records. The irony of this all is that Napster could lead to a future with far less music, rather than more."

"Metallica has always been generous with its music. Unlike most bands, Metallica has always allowed, and still allows, fans to record live concerts and trade those recordings in any format, including MP3. Metallica has also chosen on several occasions to provide free concerts and to stream albums and live concerts over the Internet for free. In addition, Metallica's Web site features free samples of the band's work, at www.metallica.com. But giving away the band's music in these instances has been strictly Metallica's choice, as well it should be."

Another heavy metal fan here, and the music I like tends to be around the 1980s and 1990s.

My little sister shocked me a few months ago when she called my music old!! Of course, she IS 13....
HAHA that's pretty much exactly what I was going to say!! I listen to music from all era's but my music is definitely the 90s grunge thing!!

I'm an 80s hair band chick, a 90s grunge chick, and definitely a metal chick
post #43 of 57
I'm happy and amazed at the amount of metal fans here!

There must be something similar about growling men and cute little kittens
post #44 of 57
I really like todays country music.
post #45 of 57
OK I have a question! WHY do all the singers nowdays sound as if they are TONGUE TIED. I mean they sound as if their tongue is stuck to their bottom teeth! Hillary Duff and Brittany Spears and even older singers all sound just the same! Sheesh! Even some country artists are starting to!
post #46 of 57
hmm... i prefer 80s music.

I wasn't born in the 80s, though XD O_o.

Hey now, everyone can hate on rap, but no one is allowed to hate on metal!
I am, of course, kidding. There is some good R&B and rap out there (even if, IMO, it is few and far between).

You are right on some of the "crap they call heavy metal". A good bit of it these days IS crap!! (And this is coming from someone who likes the genre....)
post #49 of 57
I was kind of joking. I'm the type of person that gets offended quite easily!

I do like some Heavy Metal, but the majority of it no.

It always comes down to, wouldn't it be boring if we all liked the same things!
post #50 of 57
hmmm... well, i don't like the rap and metal that are out there now. Rap/r&b/hiphop all sound the same now. And most metal bands are just people trying to scream... though i do enjoy a few .

yup yup.

Rock & Roll Friend!!! ..........I envy you!!!!

My music is mixed. Sometimes classic, sometimes Glenn Miller or Django Reinhardt, Beach Boys, German interpreter, and, sure, the 70th and 80th. Some years I worked as DJ. Was a great time :-) Someone remember Barry White, or the Carpenters, or CCR, or Peter, Paul and Mary, or ....

I just had to vote for every single era, I don't judge music by style, but by quality. I listen music from Motown and classic jazz to HC punk and classic rock. Traditional classical music is also nice, hence "other".

If I have to name a few faves: Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Mozart, early Oasis, Billie Holiday, the list goes on. I usually like individual songs, not artists.

What I really hate is this modern unbelievebly unimaginative pop "Rn'B"(I personally would not dignify it with that name), that has no other ambition than to make as sexy music videos as possible. I stopped watching MTV long ago.

Me? I listen to music from the 60's 70's 80's and 90's. Very rarely do I like the new music, some of it is okay but most of it makes my hair stand on end
