just wondering what everyone around here listens to
I play alot of rhymesayers, def jux, and once in awhile i'll get some rock and oldies in there.
I usually go for Metal or Classical.
Better yet, a combination of Metal and Classical (re: Symphony X or Metallica "S&M")
Right now I'm listening to Megadeth's album "Cryptic Writings". One of their best, in my honest opinion.
Other bands in my music folder:
Guns 'n Roses
The Rolling Stones
System of a Down
Type O Negative
-My work can be found at my local directory thread.
hmz...mainly Heavy Metal of all kinds and origins...heres a small selection from my 50 Bands 70 CDs strong collection =
^^ yeah , im a geek when it comes to heavy metal...
But im listening to other stuff for a while now...kinda develop myself musically...i really enjoy classic guitarists like Andy Mckee , Tommy Emmanuel or Ben Harper.
Also my interest in Industrial and Folkmusic is getting stronger
i like all types of music...
what i listen to when i work depends on the mood i guess.
http://www.pandora.com/ is a pretty
neat site where you can find some new bands. sometimes you wonder why
they put a certain band with the one you chose...but sometimes you
hear somethin new. kinda cool
i love a mix of a lot of things =]
jazz and blues, oh andyouve got to love the blues brothers films soundtracks hehe, i love tower of power, and i play drums in a big band which plays jazz, blues funk, that type of thing
i also love the funkier, or more fun side of classical, theres a lot of great film soundtracks i love like amelie, chocolat, pirates of the caribbean, a very long engagement, and i also play in numerous symphonic wind ensembles and other things along those lines, so anything thats fun to play, although i play violin , im not too fond of dainty sounding string pieces
youve got to love some of the golden oldies of pop, i love a bit of 80's - soft cell and the likes hehe
heavier side,metal etc, i love avenged sevenfold, AFI etc
less heavy- coheed and cambria, hundred reasons, aaand my favourite band is incubus
My taste in music?

i despise most modern major label music, too many sellout bands that aren't even that good. Punk stays underground and non-corporate, metal...i stick to european bands since they tend to be more talented and interesting than the like here in america.
www.somafm.com = really really good SanFran-based 24hr internet radio show, no commercials.... if you don't know about it it's a MUST .. there's several ongoing genres there from IndiRock to Experimental Techno to Ambient.. my fav show up there is GrooveSalad (it's a groove salad)
"CliqHop" is abstract and fresh experimental electronique.
Great studio-work music!
hiphop,some rock, but mainly underground hiphop.
atmosphere, living legends,boombap project, dialated peoples,brother ali, pigion john from the states.
eternia, dl incognito, classified and some others i cant really remember from canada.
from australia it's hilltop hoods, weapon x and ken hell, delta, de ja groove,
gmc, justice and kaos, pegz, draft, muph n plutonic, koolism, astronomy class, bliss n esso, the hospice crew.
from new zealand, dubious brothers, pnc, scribe, decepitkonz and fat freddys drop.
You are a level 8 ninja and even though you have a lot of weapons sometimes your ninja moves are your most powerful.
how about Paul Gilbert?
check his stuff on youtube, he's nuts.
i recommend the video with him and billy sheehan.
steve vai's the shit.
I wont fail now
To be honest, there's not much that I /won't/ listen to, except for really redneck country or RnB (srsly, don't like it.) Though I do end up listening to some of the same kinds of stuff. Just grindcore/mathcore, indie, and reggae stuff are what I'll generally drift towards.
Pretty wide-ranging (or at least I'd like to think it is. heh).
Alt-rock, industrial, punk and hardcore/whatever-subgenre-ends-in-the-word-'core' mostly, with some sprinklings of metal. Also rather big on a lot of electronica from psytrance to ambient to breaks to drum n' bass to EBM etc. etc. etc. Then I've also got a penchant for any kind of classical music.
I listen to the streams on digitallyimported (http://www.di.fm) a lot, there's some great electronic selections there.
hard trance, psy-trance, hard house, drum 'n' bass, electronica.. and the occasional death metal. - JAG
it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..
Breaks, Drum n Bass, Dub, Punk, Jungle, Rock (Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, etc..), Death Metal, Jazz, Minimal House/Techno, Tribal music, Percussive, Scores, Soundtracks, Emo (Some of it). Hip Hop -(old skool vibe. A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Dj Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince, etc..). Classical, Electro, 80's music, Synth Pop, Industrial.
or to sum this all up,
anything with a very nice rhythm, a strong bassline, and great melody.
Exactly the same for me.......Originally Posted by JaboElectro, Trip Hop, Big Beat, DnB, House, Blues, sometimes Jazz and increasingly less and softer Rock.
But whats missing is Hip Hop from A to B :
Arrested Development, A tribe called Quest, Afu Ra, Bamahadia, Black Star(Mos Def Talib Kweli), Blackalicious.....etc
edit: almost forgot Dj Mitsu, this man makes quite some good hip hop
Love classic rock...Zeppelin, Floyd, Beatles....today..The Working Title, 30 Seconds to Mars, KT Tunstall, Goo Goo Dolls, Incubus....i like jazz and piano stuff too
Mine is sweet, sour, kinda like beer, with an extra punch that hits you on the face at the end Seriously, is more of a progressive metal/rock thing, recently:
Rhapsody of Fire
and of course, here and there, sometimes, a bit of RPG music, especially the Final Fantasy series.
lots really ....everything from josh groban to rammstien. lots of soundtracks really. just got 300 and love it.
Prefuse, nice... Cinematic Orchestra and the rest of Lounge.
I like Indie and alternative rock. Or at least, I think it is Indie and Alt. rock...
my fav bands at the moment are:
the Mars volta
Muse is also cool.
