Lol'd at someone liking slayer and katy perry.

For me though, I mostly listen to Rush, after 40 years they've got so much good music I ever feel like I need much else. I also like to listen to Explosions in the Sky too though, depending on my mood. Very good instrumental stuff that lets your memories fill in the lyrics for you.

I started to list a dozen genres and artists, but decided to pare it down to two uncommon ones:

Jazz instrumental: J.J. Johnson

Jazz vocal: Julie London


Don't worry, you're not the only one!
Jazz instrumental: Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Arturo Sandoval, Roy Hargrove (I used to play jazz Trumpet, hence all the trumpet players)
Jazz vocal: Frank Sinatra
Jazz Big Band: Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Bob Curnow, Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band

I'm more into rock these days. Some of these bands I only have a few songs of, but I'll include them anyways:
Autograph, Mega Deth, Rush, Foo Fighters, Steel Panther, Skid Row, Ratt, Black Sabbath, Blue Murder, Deep Purple, and the James Gang to name some. I also do enjoy classical music now and again, and I prefer Hayden, Gustav Holst (The Planets suite is my favorite), Rachmaninav, Mozart, Johan de Meij, and Tchaikovsky.

You haven't heard music until you've listened to Pink Floyd
The most underrated band in history is Ween (can't even give them a classification, it's like they took all your favorite music and made it the right way)
Primus is awesome
other pretty good bands: Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers(new album is... meh), Rage Against the Machine, Beck, The Beasty Boys (great range for a group most people would think of as rappers), The Mars Volta.
I won't hate on your music (unless it really sucks), but seriously if you haven't heard Ween then there is a pit in your soul that you're not aware of.

If you like Pink Floyd, you ought to give Porcupine Tree and/or Steven Wilson (The solo project of Porcupine Tree's frontman) a listen to. A few notable records (also my favorite) are Fear of a Blank Planet, In Abstentia, and (recently released) Grace for Drowning.

BTW, most classical listeners make me sick... pretentious elitists who aren't truly interested in music or composition...


lol, music and composition has its roots in classical irrefutably, so this is either a hilariously awful troll attempt or this person is just plain ignorant. this statement makes you and only you pretentious, like somehow the factual roots of all western music is not good enough for you.

and here is a songwriter that is into classical music but composes anti-folk:
www.facebook.com/brancrown
or www.brancrown.bandcamp.com

(i think both have slightly different music selection, with the facebook probably having the stronger tracks)

Country- Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Brooks and Dunn,

@Rainbowhawk- Finally someone who agrees with me that A Thousand Suns is awesome!! I own all the LP albums and love them all, but I really think ATS is their best work to date.
