Title: The all-new favourite genre thread!
Post by: 762 on August 18, 2005, 07:05:43 pm
If your favorite genre isn't in there, just post here and tell me what it is and I will gladly update it. Just don't get too specific. I don't want to have 50 categories like "Country from the 1950's by male artists." Chances are that with 13 and counting categories of music, something very similar will be on there. If it's really a mainstream genre and I just forgot it, then post and I'll update.

And you can change your vote this time.

The list is pretty much done expanding now, just vote on what's on there.

I, of course, vote for classical again.  :P

I voted New Age this time. Which is very close to classical, in a way.
Title: Re: The all new favorite genre thread.

new age is the closest to 80s so rock rock on!

I voted for Punk again, i guess thats as close as I'm going to get to Alternative-indie-postpunk :)

eg: The Fall, Fugazi, The Pixies, The Cure, Husker Du, etc

Post by: Legodragonxp on August 19, 2005, 07:55:59 pm
I'll just vote country. I prefer ballad. Coward of the County, The Greatest, One piece at a time, The one on the left is on the right, Brundy county auction(SOLD), etc...

I voted Jazz. There are so many branches off of jazz (blues, swing, ragtime, etc...) It's my favorite.

You should check out Katie Melua and Jamie Cullum - they're both great if you like Jazz.  They're more modern than most other Jazz artists.

I picked Metal but I also am a fan of Jazz.

Post by: Pir0 on August 31, 2005, 01:47:54 am
I love carpet.

And Bob, that's like an oxymoron right there. They should create a new genre called Metaljazz or Jazzel. That combines the double bass drumming, jazz's soft vocals, brilliant baselines carrying the melody, with 2 guitars doing harmonic solos.

It would be kickin rad.

Title: Re: The all new favorite genre thread.
Post by: ECUnlimited on November 28, 2005, 04:37:23 am
I listen to just about every genre.  There are a few I don't like such as emo, the kinda of metal where the scream constantly (Is there an actual name for that?) and a few others I can't think of.

If I had to pick, I'd pick metal from Europe.  Not here.  Anything from Finland espcially like Nightwish or Sonata Arctica.  They have amazing voices and meld in their guitar skills and orchastrative backgrounds right in so it sounds just amazing.  Such great music.

I've never heard of that before in my life. I said that I'm not going to add 50,000 options to the poll, so just vote for what you think is closest. According to what I found on google, probably "classic"
Title: Re: The all-new favorite genre thread!

Yeah. That is what I voted for.

It's called Death Metal, but more specifically, the technique of screaming into the mic which creates an effect of having a possessed voice is called a "death grunt" although non-death metal bands (such as Slipknot, I thonk. I dont really listen to them) scream into the mic.

Someone, please, for the love of God, correct me if I'm wrong.

I voted for Metal, by the way. I love metal. All kinds of metal (except most hair metal *cringe*)

Comedy? You mean weird al kind of stuff? Why would that be a favorite genre? People actually listen to that stuff for more than ten minutes?  :o
Title: Re: The all-new favorite genre thread!
Post by: GrrrArrgh on May 18, 2006, 10:25:30 pm
You're missing a lot of genres there. Like industrial, gothic, trance, house, electronica, smooth jazz, easy listening, reggae, ska, r&b, world music, alternative, bluegrass, folk, showtunes, opera. There's several different kinds of metal. You can make three categories for rock, but only one for metal? Someone has a bias.  :P

Anyway, I listen to practically everything, but lean mostly toward the various incarnations of rock, metal, techno, and "new age".

Indie isnt a genre, its just a term describing what sort of record label a band is signed under. You could have Indie Metal or Indie folk or Indie anything.

DJ Tiësto - Traffic

And Dance needs to be on there, as well.


IF you dont have a clue what trance is, I suppose you could call it a mix of Dance and Techno, but its better then both!

Huckbuck, all music after the 90s are just noise, swearing, and sexxual innuendos.

Name one popular hip-hop or rap song not to do with killing, poor neighborhoods, money, or procreation.

You my friend have a very stereotypical view of music today. Do you actually listen to classical music? Ok, it works in the backround of a game or a film, but you dont have posters of Bach on your walls and a concert with classical music must be the most boring ever, I mean, they never talk, no singing, just a guy with a stick and a helluvalot of other guys noone knows the name of since the artist who has written the songs is dead.

All Fort Minor singles, Believe Me, Petrified, Remember The Name, Where'd You Go?.

There's many, but I dont have time to find them all now.

Even though quite a few rap songs don't have a "melody," just a pathetic beat that a 5-year-old could think up.

You don't go there to listen to someone talk, or for a name. You go for the damn music.

Bach beats backbeat, every time.

Yes, that depends on the lyrics. Lots of strings to a slow beat with meaningfull lyrics can touch you. 2Pacs Ghetto Gospel is one example.

I hate that song. It reminds me of another problem I have with Rap/Bad hip-hop, wherein good songs are sampled in bad ones, thereby making the original less appreciable.

Well lets just say it like this then. You dont like modern music, you prefer classical music. I dont like classical music, I prefer modern music. I accept your opinion, but I dont agree with it, I hope you can respect mine aswell.

I like nu-metal best. But rock's good too, and I'll listen to some latin music occasionally. Oh yeah, classical, sometimes.

But gothic rock is pretty good. Darling Violetta, for example. Lacuna Coil...

I googled it to see if it was really all that different from classical, but there were no samples that I could find within 5 minutes, so I'm not really counting it as a different style. Send an example and I may put it on.

That's not different enough. If it makes it feel more fair, I'm not being biased. I like country and bluegrass, which are two very different styles, but I only have country on the list. Before I made this topic, I had never heard of people who like medieval music, so it's not going up.

Yeah, it is. It's also weird having all music ever grouped into 16 categories. The main reason I'm putting up so few categories is so that you can see results. If I have a hundred options, then none of them are going to get more than 3 votes and that doesn't mean a whole lot.

Though its wierd that Its "Rap" and "Hiphop", and not "Hiphop" and "R&B". Rap is not a musicstyle. Its like you would have an option called "Singing".
Title: Re: The all-new favourite genre thread!
Post by: Kcronos on September 05, 2007, 03:05:57 pm
I just don't know.  I don't like seeing "Classical", which spans half a millenium as one section, while all this music popping up over the last 50 years each get their own option.


Maybe you don't need a "Medieval" section, but how about "Classical", "Romantic", and "Baroque"?
Title: Re: The all-new favourite genre thread!
Post by: 762 on September 06, 2007, 02:05:09 pm
That's because 90% of peoples' favourite genres come from the past 50 years. Looking at the number who voted classical, actually, it's 90.7%

I plead ignorance. All I know about Rap and Hip Hop is that one group of listeners gets insanely offended when you ask if they like the other genre, so I separated them.

Why do I always feel like I'm under attack on this board? Maybe I should stop giving anything that even remotely resembles an opinion.

This is a silly question.

My mood dictates what I fancy listening to. I range from metal to classical to jazz to funk to "techno" to pretty much most stuff. Just depends what I feel like at the time.

And "Techno"???? What is with that word? Is that just an all encompassing word for electronic music?

Because can somebody tell me that Portishead and Prodigy could possibly be in the same category?
