    What does GBAtemp like?

    I like all genres of metal except hair metal (except for the Pantera album Power Metal) and religious metal (no offense to you religious folk), classic rock and classical (17th century).

    Where's the techno, alternative, trance, emo, happy hardcore, electronica, indie, and many others? There's more to music than just rock, metal, and pop.

    i listen to a lot of stuff. personally i enjoy blues/jazz/bluesrock, but I listen to a lot of other stuff as well. I write music for a living, so you're actually exposed to all kinds of music/noise.

    I don't see Shoegaze. Where is Shoegaze? Best genre ever. Asides that, I enjoy Stoner Rock/Metal, Drum 'n' Bass, Classical, Post-Rock, and some other stuff (Vidya musics, etc).

    Heh, i came up with a genre for MCR/AFI and the likes a year ago. GlamCore [​IMG]

    ---

    Outside of that quote, i listen to a little bit of everything. Give me some Chicago, Cash, NoFx, Jimmy Eat World, Dragonforce, Sublime, Tiƫsto, Trip6 Mafia, And One, Cake, etc etc and i'm golden.
    I'm not a huge fan of a lot of country (but there are some), and i don't know tons in the way of rap/hip-hop, but i love a fast clean flow, or more instruments backing the vocals.

    Yea, i heart music [​IMG]

    Rock
    Heavy Rock
    Metal
    Heavy Metal
    Thrash Metal (some of it)

    Also quite like some Religious Rock/Metal, providing the song is actually good, most religious rock/metal songs are such the opposite of stereotypical religious music it actually makes it worse then it, but I know there are a few gems out there.

    As for the others, I also like:

    Classical
    Orchestral (which is pretty much Classical except it's done today and not 400 years ago)

    Some other stuff I like which I didn't put down (as I'd say I'm not really a fan of the genre, more specific pieces) is rap and jazz.

    Wow, that's way too many rock/metal genres and way too few genres of anything else...
    If you want this poll to make any sense, either limit it to few genres, allowing everyone to further specify their tastes in the thread, or add some more genres...

    Also, I think there have been numerous threads like this before...

    Anyway, I listen to pretty much everything electronic:
    House: Minimal-, Electro-, Deep-, Progressive-, Tribal-, Tech-, Chicago-, Disco-, Acid-, Ambient- ....
    Techno: Minimal-, Detroit-, Tribal-, Deep-, Dub-, Ambient-...
    Drum'n'Bass
    Drill'n'Bass
    Breakcore
    Dubstep
    IDM
    Glitch
    Experimental
    Post-Rock
    Ambient
    Illbient
    Chill-Out
    Downtempo
    Psychedelic
    Trance
    Psy/Goa Trance
    Psy Chill
    Acid Jazz/Nu Jazz

    And probably some more genres I didn't even know they exist [​IMG] (Like, what the hell are Leftfield or Shoegaze?)

    Voted indie & rap (modern rap is shit though) and then shoegazing though shoegazing IS a rock genre.
