    My kind of music is Rock, Heavy Metal style. It really charges you, can listen to it any time, any number of times.
    Though I like some music on the softer side of it (like Pink Floyd), nothing to beat the Harder side. And guess what??? I was in the Roger Waters concert in India, was AWESOME, was a chance of a lifetime, can never forget that concert. Didn't need drugs to put you high!

    I listen to about everything.

    But among the favorites...

    Classical music. No doubt about it.

    I'm very found of trip-hop. Bands like Hooverphonic, Massive Attack, Portishead and Sneaker Pimps. I'm also into early gothic like Bahaus and some Nick Cave.

    Also composers/players like Astor Piazzola, Al Dimeola, Carlos Paredes, Vangelis...

    Dig Jazz, some Blues.
    Also very found of experimental music and blues fusion. Tom Waits rules!

    And I could go on forever...

    I'm a real country fan. It's a funny story really. When I was a kid someone set my radio to a country station and I didn't know how to change it. I guess I just learned to love it.

    I also like bands like matchbox twenty, barnaked ladies, great big sea, lifehouse, default, train, our lady peace, etc. Music is a great thing.

    I usually just turn on the radio and listen to whatever is playing, although I like to listen to my mp3s too. I guess my favourite bands would include: Live, Incubus, Guns and Roses and Nickelback.

    I don't really listen to anything specific... Right now, I'm listening to the new Our Lady Peace CD (I don't give a rat's ass - overcommercialized or not - I still like their music. Come to think of it, what band ISN'T overcommercialized? I mean, c'mon - what's more commercial than a record company? Listen to the Tool song "Hooker with a penis" - you'll know what I mean)

    Fave bands include - Live, DMB, Incubus, Caroline's Spine, Tool, NIN, Nonpoint, Dashboard Confessionals, Verve Pipe, Earshot, Metallica, most rock, but I also enjoy classical, some rap, and some country.... R&B, in general, sucks pig balls, and I can't claim to be a fan of any R&B song I've heard in awhile.

    All kinds of music. it depends on how I feel.
    But most of the time I listen to some techno.
    also some lounge music. Haven't heard alot of that but it's not bad.

    Sometimes I listen to classic music mostly when I'm having exams (like now). It helps me relax. my favourite: Beethoven's Moonlight sonata

    no-one, I like your avatar (looks like a moby figure)

    You're dead right. They started out to be trip-hop. In fact they were one of the founders of the style and the most influential. (Portishead are big fans of earlier MAssive attack).
    But alas! They are themselves heavily influenced by experimentalist hip-hop. And most of their songs nowadays are anything but trip-hop.

    But if you listen carefully to Hooverphonic for instance... better yet, try Sneaker Pimps or even Tricky (former massive attack member) and you'll notice the same hip-hop trend. I guess Trip-hop was an accident when Massive attack launched BlueLines. A good accident, if you ask me

    hip hop, rap, pop, and classical.

    pretty much anything you can dance to is what i like. i can stand country if i absolutely have to, but i dont really like to listen it. alternative is okay...but i dont like punk rock and heavy metal stuff....
