    im a whore about subgenres (as my friends say) so ill list them ;p

    rock:
    alternative
    progressive
    psychedelic
    instrumental

    if i thought indie were a genre it would be added above, however, i think indie music is actually just a combo of the first 3 genres i listed (and a couple others) anyways, and usually not all at once, so i find it easier just to label them otherwise.

    hardcore:
    hardcore - stuff like black flag
    "post-hardcore" (i dont like the term but apparently alot of bands that are considered this. i think most of the time it fits better under metalcore or just hardcore, but whatever)
    screamo (like original 1st wave screamo bands. the bands that actually are screamo, and not metal or post-hardcore. ones that im not ashamed to call screamo. ie orchid)

    metal:
    death metal
    progressive metal (including prog death)
    metalcore
    'classic' metal
    doom metal

    others:
    post-rock
    post-metal
    ambient (ambient != post-rock as many people mistake)
    classical
    swing
    emo (like capn jazz. i find that most bands labled emo are really not. ive ranted about this before here, having emotional lyrics does not mean emo. if that were true pink floyd would be emo. also screaming is not emo.)

    the internet hath spoiled be with too much music that im way too anal about subgenres genres. i have argued countless times over what subgenre is what but in the end i think i ruin too much fun for others that way so i generally try not to (unless someone calls metal screamo. then ill get bitchy)

    also, voted rock/heavy metal

    I'm not a big fan of grouping rock and metal together, but I voted for that.

    Folk metal is my genre of choice [​IMG]

    Well, to be honest, emo and screamo is the same (and I mean screamo/emo like orchid).
    capn jazz, joan of arc (joanfrc) are more like indie rock or avant garde or something (I like 'em too!)

    Soo: I voted hardcore, since it's closer to Emo (screamo) than anything else.
    But it's more specific like this:
    Emo (envy)
    Hardcore (fall of troy)
    "post-hardcore" (matchbook romance, i guess it's called post-hardcore.. I'd call it rock)
    Post-rock (explosions in the sky, sigur rós, codes in the clouds, maybeshewill)
    Progressive (the mars volta)
    Indie rock / avant garde (Joan of arc / joanfrc)
    pop (someone still loves you boris yeltsin)

    I don't really have a taste for specific genres, I like songs/bands on their own merits. The top 5 on my Last.fm charts are -

    Nightwish (symphonic metal)
    The Divine Comedy (chamber pop)
    The Smiths (alternative rock)
    Air (Electronica)
    Nobuo Uematsu (Videogame soundtrack)

    ...about as different a set of genres as you are likely to find.

    I'm in any genre, as long as it's an OST (video games, anime, movie).

    I like music which accompany a story, and listening to that music again later makes me remember to story part.
    I have a preference for orchestral music though (but NOT pure classical).

    If I don't listen to music, my head is doing juke box by itself, I've always a song in mind.

    My main genre is like punk rock, and I listen to a lot of indie and emo too. Some ska is good too.

    Basically any kind of rock. I don't really like classifying music under genres though.

    sounds like you'd like rock operas (like the wall and tommy) and possibly even concept albums (yoshimi battles the pink robots has a story to it for the first few tracks, but it has recurring themes throughout)

    Personally at the moment I am into House. Although I do like a lot of trance in the mix, and the only station on my Pandora I listen to ATM is a trance station. If you want to know the group [DJ?] I like right now it is 2Inventions. You can get all their albums and stuff free (Legally I hope), but I am still not sure if I can post it up on the Temp. I am also listening to Breaking Benjamin, and some artists with a similar sound. [​IMG]
