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.

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*)

Ahem.

I believe you need to add showtunes. Surely they merit their own option.

Please and thank you. ;D

Well, I miss Progressive Rock/Metal.. So I'm going with Classical.

Dont forget comedy.

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

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".

Why does rock get three options and yet metal only one?

Know it's an old post but since the thread is at least temporarily revived I gotta say I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere out there that actually existed. I know they've got folk/thrash metal.
