Umm...I listen to a whole bunch of different types of music, but my favorite is probably rock/alternative. I just picked rock/alternative for the poll.

I like rock mainly... progressive/classic/heavy/symphonic/rock opera. But I like some Ambient too... usually written by Brian Eno and 80s pop.

For the record I selected rock.:)

I like EVERYTHING but country and really not that much rap either. At the moment, I am listening to a lot of Breaks...simply jeff and omar santanna and a few others.

Are there any party-animals(clubbers) in here?

If so, what's it like in your country?

Aye. ;)

Club scene is good here surprisingly. A lot of crappy clubs but theres a hell of a time to be had if you know the spots. You've also got to know someone with a house party going on after, as most of places still close at 2 am even tho the laws been changed to allow them til 4. 2 is way too early me to quit... I'm just getting started. :p

Not sure exactly what you mean by 'whats it like'. Isn't it the same everywhere? A small dark room full of giant speakers, hot chicks, insanely loud music, beer everywhere, drunken guys thinking they're the **** (who cant dance worth the same) who are spreading the aformentioned beer everywhere. Activities include watching the babes dance on the bar while spilling your beer on the dance floor and trying to get closer to the speakers cuz, hey, the 4 billion decibles is only good if you're 2 milimeters from the source. Oh, and of course; Hoping to hell that the chicks you're dancing with aren't using fake ID cuz at least one of them young enough to get you in trouble.

Have I missed anything?

I like all! Although I need a visulization for classical (apocolypse now- wagner scene), but I grew up on reggae, calypso and soca so naturally their my favorites.

I think Iron Maiden is a metal band but they sound more like rock to me.

My favorite groups are:
Bad Religion
Metallica
Iron Maiden
Pantera

Do John Williams or Howard Shore count as classical music?

I don't know if it educates, but I've read that baroque is good for thinking. The rythm of baroque seems to be like the rythm of the beat of your heart.. or something like that. Anyway, experiments have shown that thinking is improved when listening to baroque.

Currently in the Netherlands, reggae is coming up now and quite popular. I like a lot of styles, but reggae sure is one of my favourites.

A few years ago, there was a "music"-style which was called gabber. It seemed to be quite popular, never been to gabber parties, I don't like gabber. Gabber was in large partytents, but club is only in the dancing-halls and discotheques.

Rock is only a genre under which heavy metal is just a style.

Well - I am an absolutely mad fan of The Cure.. but I like a wide variety of music, so i have everything from The Beatles to Tool in my collection..

But one thing I am enjoying right now is Ladytron's album 604. (not "The Ladytron" - different bands..). It's like Kraftwerk meets Moloko.. or something, I am having a hard time thinking of a parralel actually.

Something slow on the cd player would do me great while writing programs.... or when my brain is in busy mode....

While relaxing, (brain in idle mode) I'll prefer either slow or just rock...

:D

>>What kind of music is of Beastie Boys? Its too loud to be named as Hip-Hop/Rap??

How about: "Obnoxious nasal wannabes"? ... Okay so I own two of their albums... But in my defence I own two of everybodies albums.

>>Yeah, Office Space that's one funny movie.

One of the best of all time. Oh: See 'Out Cold'. Definatly one of the top 3 funniest movies I've ever seen.

>>but I like a wide variety of music, so i have everything from The Beatles to Tool in my collection..

Dito. Diversity makes te world go 'round. :)
