Title: Favourite Music Genre
Post by: TheNightWatchman on June 24, 2006, 04:48:49 pm
Thought I might bring this back too.

I will argue all day that Rap and Hip Hop are the same thing!  8) lol

Rock classifies as STANDARD rock, yes I agree punk and metal can be classed underneath Rock.

I decided not to include Alternative because it's too vast

note: If I've missed one, tell me

note2: You may change your votes   :D [although I can't find how?]

Heh, I added Indie. I neeeeeded to have it.  8) :P

Also, the option to allow you to change votes had somehow been un-checked, so I re-checked it.

What?!? You can't include indie! It's not even a genre! It just says that the band aren't mainstream! They still fall under the category of Rock, Pop, Punk, etc

Sorry, since I'm not a mod on the new fourm I can't re-check it after I edit the poll for some reason...

Lies.  >:(
It actually stems from alternative rock bands with independant record labels, but has become it's own genre.  Anyway, plenty of indie music can't really fit in any other genre.  Try to say otherwise and indie snobs will hunt you down and beat you with coffee cups and Mogwai mixes.  ;D :D

Indie is more specific than alternative, imo.  But it's kinda hard to define.

Plus, it stems from alternative. Rock split, making alternative. Indie became an offshoot from alternative. Music is too vast to be a genre, but there is a big difference between rock and jazz.

And I warned you about the beatings. I've got a brand-new Mogwai album, too. Rawr.  ;)

Gee thats tough to pick just three.. all depends really on the mood your in.  I love anything.. except for Rap.. leaves me cold.. anything else.. no problem.. oh and even country i can handle a "little" bit of that, so long as the steel guitar is eliminated.. Joshua Kadison type is good.

I like Rock, but Argetinian Rock, or for example Pink Floy or Led Zepelin. I don't like the heavy metal or something like that. I saw that 4 people (i'm the number 5) vote clasicc. It's a sorprise for me.

Retro music? Sorry I just don't understand how that is a genre?

Checked in the dictionary to see if there was some other meaning I am missing but it gives the same as I thought
"of or designating the style of an earlier time"

I think Billy would have other thoughts on calling anything from the 80s 'retro'  ;)
Title: Re: Favourite Music Genre
Post by: terminator333333 on March 24, 2007, 12:53:13 am
If it were up to me i would list retro a type of music specifically if it was a time spannig 20 years before our time and classic rock for example would be categorized as classic.
Hopefully i'm not confusiing anyone.lol

Classic rock would be like floyd,zeppelin,eagles the who,stones etc....

 ;D ;D ;D Now Pink Floyd "the Wall" that is a classic and always will be.
Personally much of todays music is machine driven. Boom Boom/Dit, Dit/Boom Boom, and is only there for boy racers with big stereo systems in car. The female singers all sound the same. But I will admit there are a few groups still left that I Enjoy.

Progressive, no not the insurance company; the state of music that climbs to a climax!

Rush, U2, Genesis, Yes, Triumph and many forms of classical music written by Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Strauss and Rossini to name a few.

Post by: texasboy on September 18, 2007, 08:20:24 am
 ;D Much of what you listen to.depends on your mood,where you are at the time and sometimes who you are with. No head banging stuff here pls, but good old 70-90s rock Pink Floyd/U 2/Eurasure etc, sometimes out in the car the country and western comes through best, because I usually sing a long.lol. Then in my quieter moments ,some light classical Grieg/Rossini/Aboloni , and Adagio of strings.
Just me.
cheers
Beethovens 6th symphony with a good pair of head phones will bring in rock/soul/modern.lol

I selected Techno/Drum and Bass/Electronic for the fact of which is, it's the closest I could get to my genre of interest. My genre of interest is "Aggrotech", Many of you might not have any clue what that is and that's fine. Aggrotech, is a more.. darker side to Industrial, Harsh-EBM, Dark-Electro and such all fall under "Aggrotech". If you want to find out what Aggrotech may sound like, search bands like "CombiChrist", "Dawn Of Ashes", "XP8",
and so forth. I do take a slight interest in Techno/Drum and Bass/Electronic, though... I'm into Non-Vocal trance, drum and bass break beat, and stuff like that... Electronic, is not something I enjoy... but it depends on what other genres and mixes are thrown into the Electronic mix that may satisfy my interest.

I checked Folk, Native Contemporary (because I like the World music genre and I suppose that's what that would fall under :) ), and Rock, but I also listen to others, such as Country, Pop, some Jazz and Classical, sometimes R&B, so I have lots of faves!

Post by: iwatchon on January 18, 2010, 05:57:44 pm
hello there. I am new on these forums.

I also think there should be a separate "contemporary classical" on the list, though it can be shoved under "classical", the problem is, that it is entirely different in concept, writing and performance. so different in fact, just take Beethoven and Feldman, for instance, that it can be called a genre on it's own. just a suggestion.

take care.

I mostly only listen to jazz, classical, and country. Which one of those is my favorite depends on my mood. At the moment I'm in a classical mood.
