Confession time--I'm 47 years old but love "alternative music", so I'm an embarassment to my kids but a hero to their friends--Pearl Jam, Beck, U2, Velvet Underground, Greenday, etc. Not the "screaming stuff", though. Always hated country. Liz

I've listened to alot of things over the years...everything from classic rock to jazz to country to classical to blues to hard rock/metal etc. etc. etc.. Since I learned how to play guitar listening to hard rock/metal (still play 23+ years later), that's pretty much what I still listen to, even at the age of 36...No, I'm not really listening to the same bands (well, maybe a couple), there's alot of talented kids out there these days and I've kept a pretty youthful ear...and yes, I listen to the screaming stuff too...lol

as you can see, like rv56, "guitar driven" does it for me too.

For the new stuff, lately my tastes are (in no particular order):

A Perfect Circle, Chevelle, Sevendust, Soil, Black Label Society, Hoobastank, Incubus, Shinedown, Three Days Grace, Slipknot, Seether, Tool, Nickelback, Mudvayne, Disturbed

That's nowhere near a complete list, just what I could think of off the top of my head :D

for the old stuff, I'd be a little too embarrassed to mention some of the 80's hair metal but I was into quite a few good bands back then and still listen to em' a bit....like: Van Halen, Ozzy, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, so on and so on

as odd of a combination as it might sound here's what i listen to.

Heavy Metal ----- mostly underground and my favorite music :)

Hard Rock

Rock N Roll -------- mostly 80s

Punk ------- a little punk once in a while

Rap ------ a little rap if it's Linkin Park or Kid Rock or something like that


Blues and a little Jazz too

Classical ------ i had a weird habit of making mixes of famous classics like Beethoven's Fifth Symphony with Heavy Metal and home Made Techno :huh:

~ My musical tastes are eclectic and range from classic and top 40 rock, to

my ultimate favorite genre...smooth jazz!

Listing my favorites gets more difficult the older I get, because the list simply grows and grows.

The short version of my current favorites list include Brian Culbertson, Steve Cole, Pamela Williams, Marion Meadows, Chris Botti, Peter White, Fattburger, Fourplay, Bob James, Acoustic Alchemy, Rick Braun, Joyce Cooling, Pieces of a Dream and Hall and Oates (they always seem to make the cut!) etc.

Hi B,

Your list made me chuckle--my son introduced my 72 year old mother to Punk Rock (...she wanted to know what's new in music...) and she absolutely LOVES NFG!! He even ended up copying her a CD. Guess my eccentric tastes are from her genes...

(but Boston? :sighs and slaps forehead...: :) ) Liz

Wow... What a cool group of people.The range is far reaching and yummy! Well...i'd be the nerd in the group. i like "show tunes". i can't help myself.i'm truly a geek. i collect 'em :D

i've fired up a BIC at Pink Floyd and cried like a baby at a public viewing of the "God Bless the USA"video. i like almost all music. If it has a rhythm that's a plus. But i've listen to Whale Songs (and liked them). i loved Jim Croce and the less remembered Cashman and West. i'm lovin' Keanes sound to date. Sometimes lyrics ruin it for me but the music often redeems.! To much airplay ruins a song for me! Come on... It's music not mind control.There is just to much music waiting to be born... Let it all be heard! Ummm i'm ranting... Sorry...

i miss Freddy Mercury of Queen...i wanted to marry Paul Revere AND the Raiders!


Thanks for the topic hitest !
