    Well I've seen people's signatures about 92% of the teen population being into rap music, repost if you still listen to real music or whatever. What is your defenition of real music? Personally, I like something with a bit of emotion. I can honestly say I hate the beatles. I just dislike their music, the lyrics, the beats. SO guys, what's your defenition of "real music"?

    Honestly I am a metal kinda guy. I mostly listen to Heavy and Death metal, but I sometimes listen to other styles, even some rap.

    Everyone's got a different opinion, but I prefer Electro House/Dubstep, ONLY if it's not the same 4 bars repeated endlessly for 5 minutes. That stuff's boring.

    I also listen to Contemporary Christian rock every now and then when I find a song/album that I like.

    You realise that was just made up by a rap-hating troll? Music is in the ear of the beholder.

    How would you define "real"?
    Not made with software/hardware? Made with "real" instruments (guitar, piano, drums, etc.)?
    There's some awesome music in both real and unreal (derp, it's called synthetic, I believe) categories.
    What would you call music made with a tracker, but using real samples for drums, piano, guitar, etc.?
    I think "real" music is a bit of a gray area.

    I mostly listen to dubstep, D&B, some rock here and there, trance... and some sub-genres of all of them.

    This p. much. I listen to anything I find appealing, and don't really have any specific preferences.

    i wouldn't discredit rap as "not real music" but instead, "not good music"

    i wouldn't discredit any music as not real music. and hate the beatles all you want, they did a lot of unique tunes in a very short amount of time. i always thoguth they were around for decades but they weren't.

    basically it boils down to "your music sucks"

    esit: plus you are probably very young, so your tastes will probably change and some of the music you listen to now you'll feel embarrassed about.

    in this case, it would be in the ear of the listener.

    for me a good music is when i hear it, i would like to close my eyes and just listen to it or sing along with it.

    Everybody's defi\nition of "real (something)" is whatever (something) they (verb) (to).

    'Cause everybody knows if you don't like it or it's not yours then that means it's invalid/sucky.

    and about the beatles... I've tried listening to them... I just can't... and well yeah.. and i guess this was mostly a "what kind of music do you like thread"... as far as music is today, most of it is for show. The lyrics are written by companies to satisfy the masses.

    Real music is whatever I like.
    Your opinion on the subject means nothing at all.

    Music can be for all i care a loud cheer. You yourself are the one defining the "real music" and no one else.
    My "real music" would be Kpop though B-)
