I like a lot of Rock, quite a bit of Pop, a fair amount of Country, etc. I am receptive to the Blues and some Jazz depending on mood. My interest in Classical mostly peters out in the early twentieth century (but I actually like Bach, Mozart and Beethoven).

In the last hour or so I've heard Adele, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Sheryl Crow, the Judds, Green Day, Clapton, Linda Ronstadt, Eden's Edge, Cat Stevens, Lady Gaga, the Beatles and Patty Loveless.

Mostly the music I grew up listening to.

Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Blue Oyster Cult, Alice Cooper, Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Dread Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, ELP, KoRn, etc.

I discovered Bluegrass covers to some of those songs by artists like David West, Iron Horse, Hayseed Dixie and am into that too.

I like a little bit of almost anything. Something I've recently discovered about myself is that I enjoy fusions of different genres. There is a project underway at the moment called (if memory serves) Diztard, which invites pop/dance artists and metal artists to come together and perform songs together. The combination and energy is really quite striking.

A lot of the stuff I listen to know is whatever shows up on weloverocknpop.com or welovemetal.com as there is always something new coming down the pipe in the music scene.

Being that I'm just a "dumb ol' redneck" I like 60s-80s rock, including yes, the hairbands.. plus pretty much all country from the 1950s and up. I like some R&B as well, though mostly the old-school stuff, like Run DMC etc.. I -can- listen to pretty much anything without it "bothering" me, so to speak, tho some of the newer pop/top40 stuff makes me want to stick screwdrivers in my ears to shatter my ear drums.. Dubstep has that affect on me as well.. Anything else I can listen to.. :)

I dabble in a few miscellaneous songs and artists from time to time. My sociology teacher back in h.s was a huge bluebrass fan. Not my cup of tea, but it definitely kept him calm on his off days. In regards to dubstep, yeah Im kind of the same way, cant realy stand it. Its actually derived from drum and bass which I like (particularly liquid d&b). Like most things its the crappy mainstream derivative of something much better, but of course most know nothing about it because they like being handed b.s (e.g MacOSX vs. open-source..but anywho). But hey cmon guys, I know theres more of you out there, lets keep the topic rolling. Nobody listens to musis anymore lol?:p

Some of the Bluegrass covers I referenced are actually pretty good. My favorites are the Pink Floyd covers by David West, like Goodbye Blue Sky, and can be found on youtube if you're interested. Some of it, like the AC-DC covers by Hayseed Dixie, are just funny to hear done in that style and can also be found on youtube.

There is a whole "Pickin' On" series covers of bands like The Rolling Stones. Jimmy Buffett, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Metallica, and The Grateful Dead.

David Lee Roth even gets in on the act with The John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band cover of Jamie's Crying.

Lately: it has been called 'chill' music. House, trance, smooth jazz, light electronic instrumentals....

Originally: Step-mother played classical piano so: Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. Tchaikovsky too.

I am pretty much all over the map..Yes, Beatles and Pink Floyd have a special place too!!

I have been on a Bon Scott fad lately. So sad he died so young. I really dig the slow groove of this and Ride On.
