Up until a few years ago, I was strictly video game and movie scores. Had a very brief stint of alt rock.

But recently, I've been very 60s-ish. The Beatles (lots of them. Official core catalogue, extra stuff, rare stuff, Beatlegs), Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Who, Beach Boys, The Doors. I've been listening to the soundtrack to the first Austin Powers movie a lot too. lol

...and then Adele, at random.

K-Pop mainly, but video game music, J-pop and J-rock on the side. K-rap is nice too but most are fused with K-pop so I just slap it under that.

I love rock music, it energizes me. I also love pop and even some rap, but not the kind of rap where their is swearing in every line. Artists I love include Linkin Park, Drake, Shinedown, Journey, Queen, Aerosmith, Eminem.

I am currently into Linkin Park and Justin Bieber. Weird combination I know, but both of their CDs were released just 2 days ago. I listen to lots of different music, but mainly rock. I like the heavier bands like Bullet For My Valentine and then I also like the alternative stuff like New Medicine and Evans Blue. I even like the rap/rock bands like Linkin Park and I recently came across an awesome band called A Broken Silence that is very similar to them. I usually don't listen to the same thing for long because I get bored of it after listening to it on repeat for hours on end.

I'm a fan of electronic music. Approaching Nirvana is a great example of this. Various styles of video game music can pique my interest too. I can pretty much tolerate every other genre of music except for metal.

Recently began listening to Possessed, Exhumed, Type O Negative, and Death. I also found a composer that clicks with me recently: Charles-Marie Widor. His pipe organ symphonies are amazing.

Other than that, still listening to the usual metal I posted last time.

Here in the past two weeks I've been into a lot of Nick Cave... and pretty much nothing else. Boatman's Call has been the album getting the most rotation, as it's pretty much perfect drinking music.

Also Rush's new album. That thing is brilliant beyond words. Definitely worth the five year wait!

Other than that... pretty much nothing else. Weird for me.

For a very long stretch of time - approximately two and a half years, if anyone is interested - I listened to literally nothing but metal. Sludge metal, death metal, and black metal were my favorites. About four or five months ago, though, I tired of listening to the music; I found most of it boring and thought the new acts to be stagnant and devoid of heart. I listen to primarily hip-hop and alternative rock now, with a little metal mixed in, though it's mostly Black Sabbath. Everyone likes Black Sabbath, though.

Currently I'm listening a lot of vocal music and jazz. Namely the Beach Boys, the Bee Gees and the Four Freshmen (vocal) and Charlie Parker, Herbie Hancock, the Vince Guaraldi Trio and many versions of songs written by George Gershwin.

At the moment I'm into small pop-punk and rock bands.

There's one called A Rocket to the Moon who aren't relatively big but they have some really cute songs (try listening to Like We Used To from their On Your Side album, it's so cute! :3) and I really appreciate the lyricism used within almost all of their songs. The second is called Altered Sky who are a small pop-punk band who put out amazing content. I found out about them randomly through Twitter and I've been addicted to them since then.

I'm into a wide variety of music but rock is my main theme.
Currently I'm into Artic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, AWOLNATION, Grouplove, Offspring (interest revived with their new CD ), Franz Ferdinand, Gaelic Storm, Metric, Modest Mouse, Peter Bjorn & John, Pixies, Raconteurs, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soft Pack, Strokes, T. Rex, Boys Like Girls, Every Avenue, Broken Bells, Five Iron Frenzy and I'm probably missing a lot of the others. Like Gomez

Finished the FR/LG monotype a loooooong time ago. Not that anyone cares though.

Lately I've been going back to what I grew up listening to which is mostly various types of rock. Genesis, Asia, Queen, Talking Heads, The Cars. It's just what I've always liked and it's nice to get back to that.

Um also I didn't actually grow up in the 70s. I grew up in the 90s. But my parents brought me up on this stuff and I'm kind of rediscovering it on my own time.

Lately I've been marathoning Marianas Trench, He is We, and The Decemberists. It isn't too different from what I normally listen to, just a little more indie I suppose? My main music loves are classic rock and indie :)

I mostly only listen to Video game and Scores. But I love rock, and even a really old Pop song once in a while. Need a Hero by Bonnie Tyler is one of my favourites. Too bad Chris-Chan almost ruined it for me...

I've been listening to a ton of artists these days. My top bands right now are The Wanted, Foster The People, and Foo Fighters. I can tolerate any genre of music except for hardcore rap and *some* country. I like Rascal Flatts and Toby Keith, actually :P. I also appreciate older generation music like Depeche Mode, Bon Jovi, KISS, as well as Van Halen. My dad was the one that got me into that music lol.

I've been jumping between Pink Floyd (The Wall Immersion box set, thank you very much), Shinedown and Devin Townsend, but recently watched an online interactive gig with Tony Harnell who is my favourite singer of all time ever.

I have been taking interest in a lot of genera lately, some may be a little soft heavy metal. Mainly Leander Rising, which I must say is very talented even though they're drowned in mainstream crap. I also enjoy metal and rock somewhat, I still can't tolerate pop but it's decent to listen to.

Well, I've always been into metal, but recently, I've been listening to a lot of technical death metal, djent, mathcore. I've always loved technical metal, but I've been into A LOT of it recently. I found a few technical bands that sound amazing! Djent is just extremely groovy and I just can't think of any other way to explain how amazing it is. I just really love the tone. Bands like Vildhjarta, Volumes, and Ceruleus are some good djent bands. Some technical bands would be Veil Of Maya, I guess? The Faceless is technical death metal. I don't know, search for some bands; you should come across some good ones.

I'm into K-Pop too. Mostly just BoA (I like Eat You Up and Look Who's Talking).

I'm also kind of into music from 1999 - 2009

Some examples are:
Baby One More Time (1999)
(You Drive Me) Crazy (1999)
Oops I Did It Again (2000)
I'm A Slave 4 U (2001)
Lady Marmalade (2002)
Listen (2002)
Me Against The Music (2003)
Toxic (2004)

Everytime (2004)

I'll throw in P!nk, MJ, Madonna, Janet, Maroon 5, and Whitney Houston in my music as well.
