Which music do you like the most?

i don’t really have a set genre but heres my list of fav bands at the moment:

System Of A Down
Rage Against The Machine
Pink Floyd
The Dandy Worhols
The Cure

I like a huge variety of stuff, but 80% of what I listen to is metal (everthing from hair to gore)

Rock and Roll baby !

All from elvis to slayer , acdc is the best .
Iron Maiden.
Alive cooper and
Black sabbath.
And some eagles , cash and Dylan

Underground ‘true school’ hiphop from the UK and the US.

UK wise I like Jehst, Task Force, Braintax, Maestro, Lewis Parker and generally all the guys associated with Low Life Records in London, Phi Life Cipher in Luton and Marc B and Blade (arguably the founders of UK hiphop). The whole UK scene is ridiculously underground with Roots Manuva being just about the only proper rapper to break through and have commercial success.

As for the US… I can listen to some mainstream for short periods because some of those guys do know rap and are comfortable with the basic techniques of it and can rip the occasional mean verse (I’m thinking Eminem, Snoop, Missy, Luda etc), and also I find the sheer success hiphop has had in the mainstream interesting, and how it’s spreading out to influence other forms of music. But the likes of Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples and The Roots have more skill than the majority of mainstream artists (excluding the likes of Eminem on absolutely top form) and I find I can relate to the content a lot better (I’m culturally biased but I find ‘indie’ rap a whole lot more intelligent than materialistic ghetto rap, on the whole). And then when you get to the really underground level of the guys at Definitive Juxtaposition records (Mr Lif, Aesop Rock, El-p, Cannibul Ox, MURS, C Rayz Walz etc etc) then well… rap starts to become something else entirely, something a lot more ambitious.

I’m going to see both Taskforce and Jehst live for the first time this month so it’s going to be a really special month for the evolution of my hiphop journey. Will probably post up show reviews here as the UK scene needs all the support it can get!!!

Heh id have to say my favorite types of music would be classic rock and… thinks i dunno… instrumentals and… *SOME rap… icp when i want to laugh at really stupid things :tongue: and oingo boingo :happy:

I like a lot of music that starts with the letter “B”. e.g. Björk, Boards of Canada, The Beatles… :content:

I’ll listen to anything really (except for R&B, hip hop and pop) but mostly it’s rock and metal. Favorite bands include: System of a Down, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, Ozzy Osbourne, Audioslave, Disturbed, Greenday, The Ramones, Muse, Cranberries, Smashing Pumpkins, REM, Nirvana, Fear Factory and many more.

I love music, couldn’t live without it. :smile:

“Then everyone says, you like prog, you must like ELP?”

I don’t remotely like ELP.

you know what i always find this to be the most difficult question to answer. I’m after talent, people that can play their instruments and blow my mind or give me orgasms, which ever comes first.
I’ve heard a LOT of extremely talented musicians from a wide variety of music. Each genre of music has its prime musicians and something different and unique to offer.

I’m mostly into rock music, all kinds. There is nothing like a solo or harmonious clash of instruments. oh you want to talk about clash, classical takes the cake. you got 40+ EXPERT players performing pieces that were written centuries ago. oh its just to die for.

I guess if i really had to pick just one… ohh… its just too hard. Definately rock music tho. Acid, punk, classic, even grunge isn’t that bad, jam. its allllll gravy baby.

Mazzy star “look on down from the bridge”

Heres another cool one

Hope Sandoval “Down the steps” Mazzy star is one of my bands

Anyone ever heard of Dream Theater? They are undoubtedly my favourite band. Progressive style metal that is very versatile. All absolute masters of their instruments.

Im really into metal (In Flames, pantera, arch enemy etc), progressive (porcupine tree, the mars volta etc), rock (Velvet revolver being my fave in rock) and some shred.

Hm. That would be a thogh question to answer.

I certainly like jazz a lot. Anything from Ella to the Dave Brubeck Quartet—Time Out is certanly among my favourite masterpieces, and if you know musical theory, you gotta love it.

I also enjoy electronica, especially trance. I like the way the beat generation developed into a culture which tries to find the perfect silence, and builds the silence within that body–possessing mixture of beats, noises and harmonicas. The cohesion and the randomness—by the way, do notice that these two features also show in jazz. I feel like my inside is being turned into one of Pollock’s dripping paintings.

But electronica is, unfortunately, too exagerated at times. So I like it when they make a trance remix of something a little bit more structured, like classical music—another musical passion of mine. Right now, I’m listening to a piece of music called “Finished Symphony” (Hybrid @ Wide angle). Liesten to it. That’s what I’m talking about.

I also enjoy quality brit rock and brit pop, like Gorillaz, which refreshed and reinvented some features of pop music, and good old progressive rock—especially the Dark Side of the Moon, probably my favourite piece of art.

Another CD I like very much is Astronauta Olvidado, from an underground indie prog rock band from Argentina called Bauer. (Try reading that last phase out loud.)

When I’m feeling ecletic, I listen to MPB (Brazillian Pop Music) and good old rock (Rolling Stones, baby :cool: ).

And that’s basically it. I like songs rather than genres, but I think I made my point as to my musical taste: improvisation, the presence of silence as a musical element, stong beats, a coherent composition rather than a lot of dancing noises… You know, goooooood music. :cool:

My passion is power metal(Blind Guardian, battlelore, rhapsody). But I also like a lot Era/Eric levi and Enya :smile:
Some pop music never hurts, though.

Gackt anyone? L’Arc~en~Ciel? Asian Kung-Fu Generation? Ayu?

well, I’m the only one into Jpop/Jrock I guess

I listen to lots of metal, form thrash, death, and some black.
I also like 70’s hard rock, and barouqe.
