Do you guys have any favorite music genres? What band's or artists do you listen to?

I used to be into street punk because it was really fast and I liked the lyrics. I also listen to ska because it's really upbeat and keeps me in a good mood. Lately I've been listening to thrash metal, power violence, and crust punk. I don't agree wholly with what the lyrics are about, but the music alone sounds cool and unique and loud.

Some people criticize the music i listen to to just being 'noise'. There's a ton of distortion in it, and it really does just sound like white noise with a drumbeat, crashing cymbals and a guy screaming random words that kinda rhyme. Personally, I like my music noisy, the less it sounds overproduced and the more it sounds like the guys recorded it in their garage, or recorded it live, the more I like it.

I've got a ton of CD's. I think i have over 50 by now. I listen to them all, the genres all vary slightly, but I like having so many options of music styles to pick from. It costed me a lot over the years, but I really do love it.

That's just me. I may list some bands I listen to particularly later, but there are so many to list right now. heh.

What do you guys listen to?

i like almost all kind of electrical music, but i remember that the first was techno (maybe because my brother listened it a lot). i like the fast rythm in it and the ton of effects, it always wakes me up.
nowadays my fave genre is trance. the melody is great, the vocals just cheer me up so its awesome.
my other favourite is Jpop, its good for everything. theres a big variety of music styles in it so i never got bored with it. And my fave artist sings in this genre, as you may guess she's Hamasaki Ayumi.

I like listening to rock and metal, especially power metal. The bands I listen to have melodic songs with sensible lyrics.

Oh wow, I seem to be the odd one out...I listen to a lot of rock (old & new, all kinds) and blues. I'm not so much into the metal or techno.

A few of the bands I listen to:
Sam Roberts, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton (All of his many bands), Matt Mays & El Torpedo, Rush, Blue Rodeo, Pink Floyd, The Who

Trance, rave and house. I don't have too much of favorites but I do tend to listen to minomus and Skaven (even without Meteor). I just like all trance, rave and house that's good.

I'm with Arezay, my playlist is composed mainly of M1/2 songs and a few I've extracted from C&C renegade. I also use XMplayer to listen to them.

Well in fact little of the music I listen to is used in M1/M2, sure there's Last Ravechild on it and a couple of others. My favorites are minomus' Cheese Patrol and Skaven's Codename Silver.

Heh well I'm pretty odd here too.

Punk
Street Punk
Crust Punk
Noise Punk
Thrash Punk
Crack Rock Steady
Ska-core
Hardcore
Straight-Edge
Power violence
and sometimes hip-hop

Are all genres of music I normally listen to. I dunno how to describe punk music alone, you'll have to find out yourself what that sounds like. Street Punk is a little faster version of punk, except with lyrics more about fighting, sticking together, and political issues. Crust Punk is a much deeper and slower version of punk, with heavier political styled lyrics, often about the clear despise of politics and regular citizen behavior in general. Noise punk and thrash punk are pretty much the same thing, they're loud, really fast, and what most people would consider 'untalented'. But I love it that way. Crack rock steady often sings about drugs, alcohol, and hatred of police. I don't totally stand by that message but the music is amazing. Ska-core inspired crack rock steady, which is not a whole lot like punk, but is way more upbeat and and the lyrics are more about common teenager ordeals. Hardcore is much heavier, almost like street punk but a little deeper and more so about fighting than anything else. Straight edge is faster than street punk but they sing against alcohol and any kind of drug use whatsoever. I don't really stand by that message either. Powerviolence is really fast and thrashy, and more biased to fighting for what you believe in.

Most people will look at me like I'm crazy, but a lot of hip-hop is really pretty good. I think all forms of music get a bad rep from popular TV channels like MTV. While the Indie Rock that they always play on MTV is terrible, the R&B, rap, and hip-hop are terrible too. But after a bit of searching for good music, I came across a number great hip-hop artists that were actually really fun to listen to. Most of those groups are older though and broke up long ago. Upon finding that it drew me to the conclusion that all music in pop culture sucks.

I'm with that, generally people have a very weird taste of music. Over here the radio is being kept on during the day and I forcefully hear 'songs' from popular culture. Once I heard an interview where they discussed electronic music. The one being interviewed said that electronic music won't last for long due to popular loss. That, I thought, was more wrong that 1+1=3.

Haha I know that track. It's used a lot as a background music for FPS gameplay videos.

This is my favorite crack rock steady band, The Infested. Every one of their songs puts me in such a good mood. Especially the song 'the right to die'

Their album doesn't come out until November 3rd X(

I hadn't listened to 'The Infested' before. But now I have heard their music. It's not a bad band.

If you guys like hard stuff, I suggest you listen to Witch Hunt.

Try this song if you wanna be pissed off. It's called "Blood Red States"

I haven't heard about this band. But right now I can't listen to the music from the link you wrote because I am not in front of my own computer right now and also, this computer has no sound. But when I get home I will listen to the music of 'Witch Hunt'.
