Im making this post out of curiosity, seeing as though this is a programming community, I wonder if computer-literates share a trend in music preference.

I myself like especially progressive trance and to a lesser extent any form of techno :) .

Mostly classical and rancheros of the mariachi. (diverse, eh?) :D

Insane Clown Posse
Happy Hardcore
Theme Remixes
Original Themes
Video Game Music Remixes
Original Video Game Music
80's pop
Older metal/rock

I also like stuff like DJ Chip Man - Peanut Butter Jelly Time which is similar to the Witch Doctor cover.

I voted on everything except Jazz. You need more options on that poll.

Interpol

Alpine Stars
The Church
Echo and The Bunnymen
Nick Cave and the Badseeds
Einsturzende Neubauten
Royksopp
The Faint
Joy Division
The Smiths

I sit in this wierd limbo between Pop/Goth and Post Punk.. I suppose it depends on my mood and what I am coding. ;)

Classical, and Metal...
Many people think that's odd to have someone to like both classical and metal.

Original video game music. I went to the trouble of recording many of the songs from FF7 (such as One Winged Angel) myself. Remixes are sometimes nice.

There are examples of just about every genre in my collection, mood thing - I play what I feel like listening too. I think I would have difficulty finding much Country and Western I could say I liked.

Edit: Trance and techno suck. I hope you die a horrible, horrible death...Poly, hehehehe, video game music sort of IS techno if you think about it. Well, depending upon the game you're talking about.

Me personally, I created a few cds like this. One cd is full of theme remixes. Scooby doo, simpsons, smurfs, speed racer, mega man music, tetris, killer instinct, all your base, friends(by scooter), and the inspector gadget remix. Then, I have a cd which is full of composed midi remixes of video game music(from vgmusic.com) which was sent through a wavetable plug-in for winamp and outputted to wav files for a cd. Then, the SNES, NSF, and Sega Genesis plug-ins for winamp which used emulator ripped sound tracks from video games. And, that cd, which has batman stuff, zelda stuff, mega man, ninja gaiden, and metroid stuff from the nes days...that's kind of techno to me. It might not be "cool" techno, but, it's definitely not country music. :p

Yeah, I agree, Trance and Techno are dominant music types,
Meaning that you constantly think about it so it's not
really relaxing or anything. I like soft and background music.

I like the sounds of games.

Especially old DOS games which just scream insane beeps out of the PC speaker.

Brilliant.

Bingo. I have a musical twin.

>>Many people think that's odd to have someone to like both classical and metal.

You must like Tool then. Ever heard the strings album composed by various artists as a tribute to Tool, called Third Eye Open? Do a search and you'll find where to order it. Its great stuff.

No -- just because something uses electronic instruments doesn't mean it's techno. You can write a symphony with electronic instruments, or a rag for piano using electronic instruments, or a waltz, or metal.

Is the music from a Zelda game techno? No. How about Chrono Trigger, or Mario?

Sure, there CAN be video game music that is techno, but in actuality, very little ever is.

> doesn't mean it's techno.
Gotcha. I pay very little attention to techno. I don't like it really. The closest to techno I like is happy hardcore and some of the things I listed.

I had a g/f who was into it hardcore and made a cd or two(published them, made money, etc.) - small time dj. Most of it's bland, and dull. Happy Hardcore is cool though:D.

I just wish more technoish music was like the last 30 seconds of the inspector gadget remix.

On a different note, I can't stand RnB.... hmmm, how to describe it...
RnB to me is like... you know that feeling you get immediately after you trip over and bang your head on something hard? that's the feeling i get when I 'hear' RnB. All dizzy n stupified :p

Whenever I am on my PC, my Techno, drum n bass and Dance selections are on full whack. Can't here anything but I love the feeling that my hands are typing to the music.

Have been told off twice today already at school because I have been listening to my music on the forum and it was 'too loud'!

Red Hot chilli peppers

Since when did the peppers become metal? Either way, Metallica is cool; I liked them since I was a little kid (5th grade).

Rap = fascist crap (even with talent like Eminem- crap)
Acid Punk = crap
"Punk Rock" = crap
Pop = crap (with some exceptions)
Rock = bad, with a large section of goodness
Classical = nice
Instrumental = this category is too broad
Jazz = #1, super-duper, all the way, awesome, elite, excellent

This is not an opinion; this is truth.
-Strumming 'G' and 'Aflat' while screaming (aka acid punk) is a sad excuse for music.
-Rap is decivilizing jabbering with an occasional good beat.
-"Punk Rock" is pop for rich white kids.
-Pop music reflects our current social standing- corrupted shallow ####.
-Rock is an evolution of blues and it often good; but not that often.
-Classical music is the root of all western music and should be respected as such.
-Jazz is an artform and good to listen to.
Amen.

i think i'd agree, "punk" isnt what it used to be, TRUE punk is the underground stuff, and now you got bands like sum41, and blink 182 that are "punk" and youre right, all these little rich white kids are jumping on the bandwagon.

slipknot, mudvayne, system of a down, skrape, deadsy, korn(..yes korn) , deftones, spineshank, shuvel, finger11, nonpoint, cold(not coldplay) sevendust...rock on!

Yes they are not metal, and Metallica is great... One of the best metal bands...

It's good we have some SOaD fans, because they have many great songs...

Sebastiani

As a teenager we used to listen mostly to punk/post-punk bands and of course the stuff on the radio.

Classics:

Blondie (heart of glass!)
The Ramones
The Cure (killing an arab!)
The Clash
The Velvet Underground
Bauhaus
Nitzer Ebb
Taking Heads
David Bowie


Forgettable:

Rush
The Dead Milkmen
The Dead Kennedy's
Weird Al Yankovik
Adam Ant
The B-52's



And who actually survives through everything? Elton John!
