Music snob...

For the record... I can usually listen to almost ANY music...

Music being the operative term...

Thrash metal where the "singer" (and I use the term loosely) just screams at you like he's about to puke on his shoes and the only words you understand are the even louder swearing "FUCK YOU!!!" 's is not music. It's good Background music for like horror movies, but to just listen to it?

No, it sucks.

Rap -- good only in small doses really in English, now in Japanese I sit and giggle my ass off entertained... in English I'm not all that concerned about "booty", "big butts", "cop killing" or calling your girlfriend a "ho". O_o I think it's offensive actually 99.99999999% of the time.

I love Bluegrass, and "old" country music, the newer stuff blends into generic current pop sounding canned kareoke with a twang...
I love Rock from the 50's to Current, I love Jpop, Techno, Industrial, Classical, Big Band, Swing, Jazz, Blues, Calumet City Blues.... I like most music... that being said I turn off the radio and go off to write.

Sorry, I just can't listen to that music for extended periods of time, my ears bleed from being screamed at by piss-pour "singers" with attitdues way too big for their "talent".

Sorry Limp Bizket, Gobsmack, etc... fans, they SUCK IMO.... O_o (THey may come out with one or 2 songs I actually LIKE, but generally most of their tunes... ICK)

If I want to be screamed at, I'll throw on AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, "old skool metal"... because at least the music they scream to actually ROCKS, you have great guitar solos, rockin' drums, kickin bass lines etc... and it's not all distored, over processed digital noise without definition thumping behind the "singer".

I'm such a bitch.

And while people like Ozzy are screaming at you, you get good lyrics, as well.

Mmm... ozzy and Alice. Ah, my heart sings to thee...

And yeah, I'm pretty much the same way as far as music goes. My playlist is pretty varied, and a few songs I hear on the radio, I take a liking to, but that's about it. ^^

Have to agree with you, though I DO happen to like Godsmack's song "Alive" *I blame that pureky on those Navy commercials being played over and over and over again, grabbing my attention every second of the day ^^;*.

But give me Poison, Warrant, the old Aerosmith, Guns n Roses, or groups like Blackmore's Night or Blind Guardian, or best yet, Rhapsody. Or just about ANYTHING from 1980's into the early early `90's, and I'm a happy lil bee ^_^.

Hiphop and rap.. well a little rap is okay, depending on whom the artist is, like Will Smith and a little Eminem, but nooooo hiphop... hiphop just makes me wanna rip the speakers out of the stereo if I hear it.

*looks around, wary* And I still have a fangirl weakness for NKoTB ^^;. It's one of those reminiscing things X3. *snuggles her NKoTB Greatest Hits cd ^W^*.

If you're a bitch, then so am I ^___^ I detest that hardcore metal crap, nothing but a bunch of noise with "fuck yous" mixed in. Rap drives me up the wall, same old stuff over and over, nothing original. Give me classic rock, 50's, 60's, country, 80's, swing, big band, classical, jpop and jrock, but please, no heavy metal or rap, I want real music thank you very much.

*breaks out singing* "Joy to the world, all the boys and girls.."
