Thrash Metal, it is the genre I have the most artists and songs for and pretty much defined my high school years as it was all I listened too. That would be my favorite music from the last century.

#15 Posted by fisk0 (4129 posts) -

Burzum is a crazy fucking nutjob, but he remains pretty much the best black metal guy out there.

Chrome was a relatively early band to mix industrial, post-punk and lyrics about transhumanism and other cyberpunk themes back in the late 1970's, and I fucking adore them (I especially recommend their 1980 album Red Exposure).

Philip Glass, because his stuff is just goddamn fantastic.

King Crimson. Listen to Epitaph.

Ståålfågel - while none of their other songs quite live up the quality of En Dag I Varuhuset, that song is so goddamn good that I'd put them up there just for that one song. Along with Cortex' Jesus I Betong, the absolute best to come out of Sweden's already pretty damn great new wave period:

Could you give us a little more info to go on? Some examples of music that you enjoy, perhaps.

#21 Posted by BIGJEFFREY (5055 posts) -

Do video game scores count? Cause holy shit do i listen to alot. If not then Katy Perry.

#22 Posted by crunchyflies (37 posts) -

@spaceinsomniac: anything really. Dubstep, rock, hip-hop, video game and movie scores. However, I am a little on the skeptical side when it comes to rap.=/

#23 Posted by CaLe (3988 posts) -

I don't listen to music out of context, I mean just for the sake of listening to it. So my enjoyment of it is largely tied to whatever it is accompanying, and therefore, the type which fills the chest during the climax of something emotionally moving is probably the best for me. I dunno the names of anything music related so I dunno what it's called. I'm sure you music-heads will know what I mean.

#24 Posted by StingerMK2 (386 posts) -

I'm normally more of a rock and metal fan, but over the last few years I'v gotten into a bit of hip hop, and I'd thoroughly recommend B Dolan- Fallen House, Sunken City, good music and thoughtful lyrics, it's catchy but doesn't feel commercial or cheesy.

Okay, I'll bite. What is the difference between hip-hop and rap? Some examples, perhaps?

#26 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4213 posts) -

Well, if you're looking to stay away from rap, then I'd say try going towards the strange pop side. I always thought as this video as wonderful.

The one's that come to mind are like:

  • Phoenix
  • One Republic
  • Thievery Corporation
  • Fitz and the Tantrums
  • The National
  • Empire of The Sun
  • Vampire Weekend
  • Portugal. The Man
  • The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  • Coconut Records
  • Editors
