A lot of modern rap is....unintelligent, lyric-wise, to say the least. (no offense to rap fans) It doesn't sound right to me.
Country isn't as bad, although I still don't like it.
And I'm perfectly fine with dubstep and pop and whatnot.
Ooh, this is a topic I can get into!
I can get into pretty much any genre, I judge it by band more though to be honest.
Right now i'm listening to Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head by Gorillaz. These guys are one of my favorite hip-hop/alt/alt rock band.
As for the punk rock thing Carchar, I agree the old stuff was amazing, but music should change and grow otherwise it becomes boring.
Classical music depends pretty much a HUGE amount on the composer and the type of music the composition is. I dig Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Widor, and some Wagner and Shostakovich.
I'm especially fond of pipe organ arrangements as well.
It's not so much the music that I dislike about it changing (although it doesn't help), it's the attitude. Punk used to be all about anarchy, sticking it to anyone and not giving a f***; nowadays, it appears not so much.
I tend to go by songs more than genres or bands. Even in a genre that I normally dislike, there are some exceptions with certain songs or possibly bands/artists. This gets annoying, though, because I have a difficult time finding a band that I generally like, not just a few of their songs.
"Its immense jaws have enough destructive force that it can chew up an automobile.
It lived 100 million years ago."
I usually find myself in a minority, i tend to favor rock, metal, classic metal, classic rock, punk and so on.
Few examples for those interested:
the sex pistols
Three days grace
Panic! at the disco
fall out boy
Bullet for my valentine
a day to remember
Black veil brides
Falling in reverse
I'm not opposed to any particular genre really, although I'm yet to find a rap/dubstep song I enjoy. Although that last fact may be due to the fact the only people I ever see or hear playing it are the least likable people in my area.
It doesn't help that I work in a nightclub, meaning that I have to put up with truly awful taste in music, and the same 4 songs from the current-pop charts repeated over and over....
