I change my favorite genre every month, despite my love for all types of music (expect for classical)
At the moment, it's dubstep and rockish music. More of Linkin Park, to be honest and Klaypex.

I feel really hipster saying this, but right now I'm into really off-beat songs that not a lot of people have heard of, or didn't really make it big in the mainstream. It's not because they're not mainstream - I like mainstream music as much as the next person, it's just that the way I usually stumble across these off-beat songs makes them mean more to me than most other songs.

I usually find songs through TV shows, and the way they're used in the context of the show makes me grow emotionally attached to the song as well. So that's how that works for me lol. My latest one is a really short song called "What A Pity" by Right Away, Great Captain. I found it on Grey's Anatomy haha.

Mostly rock/pop. Bands like Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, that kind of stuff which isn't unusual for me, but also I've been starting to venture into more poppy stuff like Total Eclipse of the Heart and similar songs due to a friend of mine that listens a lot to that genre, and I must admit I'm not hating it one bit :p I feel an iTunes overhaul coming on!

I've been listening different stuff lately, but overall the same. Mostly metal, usually thrash/groove/progressive/power metal with some heavier death/black in between: Dream Theater, Queensryche, Nevermore, Sepultura, Machine Head, Pantera, Mayhem, Mirrorthrone, Satyricon, Slayer, Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Mastodon (recent interest), High on Fire, Death.

Drum and bass, downtempo, pipe orgam symphopnies, all that jazz.

I'm also digging Skyrim's soundtrack.

The album that has been on replay in my car for the past two months is Sia's "Some People Have Real Problems" It's the best downtempo album I own. I recently bought the physical CD (I'd had it only digitally before) and I haven't taken out of my car's CD player since.

It's my favorite album of her's and its a masterpiece.

Do you like Pink Floyd? Your name makes me think of them. ^-^

I'm really into 90's alternative, like Smashing Pumpkins and Incubus, and older stuff like Pink Floyd and the Beatles. Also Elvis. I have no clue why, either. :/

I'm really into modern pop/rock, but when I'm not around other people I listen to a variety of post-rock bands such as Mogwai, Tortoise and Mutemath. I like the instrumental songs that Mogwai and Tortoise offer, especially if I'm alone or trying to calm down/sleep, and I love Mutemath if I feel like I'm seven-years old and need to dance around in my underwear. n-n

do you know what hurts most about a broken heart?
not being able to remember how you felt before...
try and keep that feeling because... if it goes...
you'll never get it back. ever.

I love The Sun Smells too Loud by Mogwai. <3

I'm kinda all over the board right now when it comes to music. I've been keeping up with all of T. Swift's new stuff, got the new Killers album, but I've also been exploring a lot of indie rock, whatever genre you want to call it, mainly Loquat, Now, Now, and Six Gallery.

I'm currently on a James Bond high and have been listening to Bond songs like mad for the past week. Also this song by passEnger called "Let Her Go" (it's free on Amazon, at least in the US) and Rascal Flatts' "Come Wake Me Up."

I do like a variety of things... so this will be different in a few months xD.

As of late, I've been all over the place. Been listening to Death Grips, Neutral Milk Hotel, Animal Collective, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Death Grips is waaaay out of what I'd consider my comfort zone, but I dig it.

Neutral Milk Hotel and Andrew Jackson Jihad cure an itch I didn't know I had, but bless em all the same.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor is awesome new to me. I'd never bothered with post-rock because I found the genre name silly (still do).

Animal Collective... lol. Not really sure how I feel about them.

Also lol the new Muse album. No thanks.

Oh dang, this is a difficult question to answer. Oh well, I'll answer.

I've been obsessed with All Time Low, Motion City Soundtrack, and Say Anything right now.

They're pretty much the only bands I've listened to for the past 2 or three months.

Otherwise, I'm a big fan of bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Sleeping With Sirens, Fall Out Boy, and Every Time I Die.

It's pretty hard for me to listen to listen to more than 10 bands in a 3-month period.

I'm currently into Korean pop and general pop, but I don't really get the hype of Gangnam Style everywhere although it's superbly catchy.
