Music Genre Poll


Recommended Posts

Hey all, just wanted to get a general idea of what music the Technic community listens to. No real format for replies other than including your preferred genre/genres would help ;)

For me it's Metal every step of the way, Metallica, Slayer, Lamb of God, Job for a Cowboy you name it, although it not only limited to metal. If you guys actually give a crap about the other stuff let me know :D

I like Techno, especially songs with bass. Not the really fast stuff though or stuff like what Infected Mushroom makes.

Daft Punk, Benny Benassi, and Deadmau5 are my favorites.

I also like listening to bands with female singers, listening to Fireflight right now. Sounds better in my car though, my headphones aren't all that fancy.

I like Metal. Thrash/Death/Black/Doom and even some folk and power. I've been fortunate to work as a metal DJ at our college's radio station, otherwise I wouldn't have been exposed to half these people (and probably would have still thought Metallica had talent).

Vader, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Rotting Christ, Belphegor, Graveworm, Gorguts, Municipal Waste, Overkill, Swallow the Sun, Sun O))), Aether Realm, Amon Amarth, Entombed, Ancient, Behemoth, Watain, Austrian Death Machine, Psychostick, Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Tyr, Korpiklaani (hit or miss), Draconian, Insomnium, Nightwish, Nile, Children of Bodom, Kataclysm, Goatwhore, Death, Carcass, Dream Theater (OK they're prog rock, but still damn good), Devin Townsend Project, Tryptikon, and probably more I can't think off the top of my head.

I'm a name-dropping whore.

Rock, Chiptune, Jazz, retro game tunes etc.

Among my favorite bands are The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

I absolutely love Oscar Peterson's jazzy work.

I listen to (and make) lots of chiptunes. I don't know why they appeal so much to me, but they just do. The NES and especially the C64 can crank out some crazy-ass shit.

Seriously, look up Fearofdark, Rushjet1 and Tadpole, among countless other chiptune artists. These guys put a lot of work into their stuff.

http://tadpolemusic.us/ -Even more.

Oh, and I couldn't have forgotten this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIkQNti8_EU

One more thing: Dubstep is terrible.

Being a musician, i've learned to appreciate a lot of different styles of music, but i think my favorites are Djent, Ska, 80s speed metal, and awful 90s rock.

Keith Merrow

Asylum Street Spankers

Diablo Swing Orchestra

White stripes you can find on your own.

I've got to say, Jay, that there is something to be said for awful 90s rock, is it just White Stripes you meant by that?

Not just the white stripes, but they are my favorite awful 90s band.

One more thing: Dubstep is terrible.

I actually enjoy some dubstep. Skrillex just sounds like a washing machine to me though.

Also, i think enough people may enjoy these.

Does miscellaneous video game and movie soundtracks count as a genre?

In the same way that "showtunes" counts. While it is technically a group of music, it isn't necessarily musical quality that links them together.

Rock, pretty much the only thing I listen to. (Skrillex being the exception :P, I liked Bangarang and Scary monsters and Nice sprites)

Thousand Foot Krutch, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, Skillet, Sum 41, Angels and Airwaves, Rise Against
