This might have been done before, so apologies if it has but I couldn't see it. 
 
Anyway, my favourite genres of music would be punk, metal and hip-hop (when I say hip-hop though I like mine not too mainstream and to have something to say, so no 50 Cent etc!)
 

  • Favourite punk bands would probably be The Clash and Bad Religion. 
  • Favourite 'metal' bands would be Killswitch Engage (though I wasn't keen on their last record!) and Converge
  • Favourite hip hop artists would be Jurassic 5, P.O.S. and Big Boi.
 
 How about everyone else?

Sublime is a difficult one! It'd be easy to say reggae, but there's more to them than that (dabbling in punk etc) I'd say Mad Caddies would fit into the same genre, whatever the hell that was.

Mid 90s style hip hop! Wu, Gangstarr (RIP Guru), MF Doom, KRS 1 (new album with Tru Master is nuts), Murs, Visionaries. 
 
Too tough to get into the newer hip hop acts (think I'm officially getting old)
