That would be cool. :) Truly. I'm also hoping to see Rooster if he gets his trip to the game developers.

I enjoy Country and Orchestral most. Country seems to have a better overall celebration of life besides just breakups and sex (pop/rap) and better than the annoying ramblings of sex, drugs and money from rap. The type of Orchestral I like inspires my creative side. Tell me, does the song below not make you think of an epic situation?

DarkM, that first one on your list...Pitbull, Chris Brown...
That has 134 million hits! (and counting, probably)
I have loved rock music since the sixties but don't get this...

Although I don't find everything about Pitbull to be "Good Listening" . . . the beat supplies me with ample tempo to which I can keep a certain rate on the elliptical bike . . . it is a catchy too.

With some exceptions, I mostly enjoy music with lyrics that make sense to me.

Probably because my ADHD makes my unfocused attention span relatively short unless I get "hooked" into the song somehow.

I seldom listen to music---it's never just " on in the background."

If I'm not listening to traffic or news when driving; and I keep the radio on, I will usually punch the one country and western station I have preselected.

Standards from the 40's on up, early rock and roll, ballads, folk & country.  I also enjoy classical.  All of them have been the background music of my life.

1. Rock

2. Jazz

3. Classical

Why? Because I'm not being forced by the before-mentioned genre to listen to people talk about the hood, ghetto, guns, murder or killing the poo poo. As far as "real love", there's a little wiggle room for that.

I listen to lots of genres randomly but my top favorite is Rock- metal and then good old jazz!!

Nothing beats rock! (which it converts in several genres by itself) there's few rock genres that i can't stand at all for instance (progressive rock) but love Rock itself, alternative rock, metal (which one side of it is part of rock) , Nu metal, electronic rock, ect . . .

I can't find any emotion that i find with rock! Grew with it and absorbed past and present! From Nirvana and Pearl Jam and AC/DC to Evanescence, Breaking benjamin,Disturbed, halestorm, ect . .

After all, my true favorite genre is  ♥ L i N k I n  P a R k ♥

LP is not just rock, it's creativity of music.

Electronica and indie are my favorite genres. I don't know why--they just sound the best to me. With electronica, it's all about the variety of sounds that can be produced by synthesizers. With indie, I love the simplicity of much of the music and the pleasant sound of the singers voices (usually a bit softer).

60s-80s classic rock and metal (mostly Metallica, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Queen, Rainbow, and Pink Floyd), some Japanese rock songs once in a while, and maybe some modern rock and metal... I also listen to classical music every now and again!

It depends on my mood, sometimes I listen the rock, country and even rap too, but I rarely like it, normally I prefer the classical music that are soft and relaxing, as after the work, listening to a relaxing one is good for the mind.

Ooooh I like this answer. I mostly listen to the electric genre. I'll mostly listen to Trap, Dustep, Melbourne Bounce, Techno, Trance Drumstep etc. Here are some examples 


Trance/Techno at 2:05 onward is my favorite part

Last but not least can't really name it so I'll just say it's EDM

Feel free to go through the playlist I made. You might just find something you like.

I don't have a favourite genres of music. This is because I listen to all kind of music, as long as the rhythm and lyrics are catchy and created with pure talent.

Commercial, Pop, Rock, RnB, Classic, House, Electronic... It doesn't really matter. I'm looking for style and music made with taste!
