    Hi.

    It's been blatantly proven time and time again, most male internet goers have the tendency to prefer a form of rock, metal, or punk (though this genre is less liked, but still like over other genres).


    I myself don't care for metal and rock with words in it. I like it lyricless.


    But then also, I favor:

    Country (Some people just swear that it's the demon spawn of satan).
    Big Band .
    Big Band and Swing (BEST GENRE EVEEEEEER.)
    Swing.
    Showtunes (Broadway).
    A spray of classical.
    Christian
    Bands (As in, high school bands. Those types. I don't consider this the "Big Band" type)
    Lyricless Blues.
    Lyricless Jazz.


    So yeah.
    How about you guys?
    I'm talking about genres OTHER than metal/rock/punk.

    Lyrically....
    John Prine, better than Dylan, don't shoot me.
    Cat Stevens, lyrical buddha.
    Tom Waits, grabs my guts.
    Randy Newman, the dark stuff is dark.
    Sparks, cleverest, who writes a love song to a cigarette?

    ..and I agree with you about big band, that music just runs the gamut (I love Artie Shaw!)

    Find some John Prine!

    Rhythm and Blues, Hip-Hop/Rap (Very few songs I like)

    My favorite genre of music is Rock/Metal. (Sorry had to! [​IMG] It's really my favorite genre though.)

    I don't limit myself in any way, if I like what I hear then I like what I hear, it doesn't matter what genre it is.

    Same goes for most things in life for me. [​IMG]

    We have common music interests, Nero, you should shoot me a playlist.

    But then again, I'm sure most people dig this kinda stuff ( alt., metal, etc).

    Rap/Hip-Hop like most teenage people.

    Cept I like more of the old stuff, not much of this new non-sensical garbage that's released every couple weeks.

    "SouljaBoy up in this ho...Watch me lean and watch me rock. Superman that ho, now watch me bump that Robocop..."

    What the fux?
    Stupidest song evar...you get my point.

    Bone Thugs N Harmony have great rap music.
    Best Rap Group ever, IMO [​IMG]
