    Me, I used to listen mostly to hip-hop & r&b. But I don't any more. Now I'll listen to anything, except for hip-hop.

    I can see the beauty in everything from down-home bluegrass to death metal-as long as it's for REAL, not the creation of some slimy, parasitical music biz mogul. I see the popular music scene as a never-ending struggle between the artists & the moguls.

    When the artists are winning, we get fresh, creative, exciting music.

    When the moguls are winning, we get bubble gum, disco, and a plethora of two-chord dirges, one song quite indistinguishable from another.

    Elvis Presely - his music is never dated and boring.
    Frank Sinatra - over time, I have learned to appricate his music.
    Of todays music?

    Britany Spears! - Just kidding - I heard she lipsincs anyway....that her voice is robotic.

    Courtney Love. A bit of crackhead to say it mildly but I do like her music....

    You must like my avatar then!!!That is my favorite too. I was a teen when Bon Jovi,Cinderella,Motley were all big-that is what I grew up on and love. I love Led Zep too. I actually find myself growing more fond of country as I get older. I love the partriotism.

    My music tastes are all over the board. It's easier for me to say what I don't like, which is today's rap and R&B, today's country (outside of alt-country), and today's popular rock and metal. Other than that, chances are I've listened to it.

    Just to give you an example, these are the first four CD's in my collection:

    AC/DC - Live
    Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker
    The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's
    Bush - Sixteen Stone

    Then way down at the bottom I've got Rob Zombie! :D

    DK, great list of bands! My favorites are Bob Marley, Offspring, Linkin Park, Incubus, Van Halen (1984 and prior), and the Supertones.

    I enjoy reggae a lot, plus hard rock/nu-metal. I don't care for pop, though I do have a soft spot for Liz Phair/Michelle Branch. And I am even starting to tolerate a little bit of country!

    Quick story: in high school all I ever listened to was gangsta rap - NWA especially. Eventually my dad figured out who NWA was - I think it was the Compton hat that I used to wear that gave him a clue. Anyway, he made me throw out my NWA tapes. In a fit of teen angst, I threw out all my rap tapes. So I had no music. For my next birthday, I got Bob Marley's Legend on cassette - and I have been hooked ever since. My Marley collection has grown to 30 CDs, 5 or 6 shirts, numerous posters, a framed picture, several years worth of calenders, three books, and some other miscellaneous stuff. So any Bob Marley questions you've got, throw 'em my way! :D
