I am a fan of rock, heavy metal and anything in between the two. I love the sound of guitars, bass, and drums.

I wish I could get into metal, it's one of the very few genres I have trouble with. Although I do like a lot of the very early proto-metal stuff like Girlschool, Motörhead and such. Closest thing to metal I find I enjoy is Industrial Rock, which probably has more in common with Synthpop, just harder.

Also Thin Lizzy's proto-metal stuff is really fun too.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I'm not into all subgenres of heavy metal. I prefer the metal that has some sort of singing even if it isn't the best. Bands like Metallica, Slayer, System of a Down, Rammstein,  Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, and many more. I've really gotten into Ghost, though, I'd classify them more as hard rock than metal despite their satanic themes.

Speaking of Thin Lizzy, I do like this Metallica cover of one of their songs:

I also like this Tears for Fears cover by Disturbed

Oh, and another metal band I like is Bodycount. I guess they kind of have a Motörhead sound to it. Like metal with a punk spirit.

The lack of an indie or indie rock option in the poll saddens me.

Yeah, my favorite genre is indie, particularly indie rock/pop. Bands like Pinback, Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Built to Spill, etc. There's plenty, plenty more in there and plenty of overlap. Bands like Sigur Ros, Sparklehorse, Black Heart Procession, Temper Trap.

I grew up on rock and classic rock and still really enjoy those. My least favorite genres (not that you're asking) are Rap, Nu Metal, Dubstep, EDM, and modern country.

A mix of Rock / Pop / Indie / Alternative covers most of what I listen to. Metric is my favorite band which is indie rock.



Signature goes here!

Most kinds of rock. Whether it's old-school hard rock, prog, grunge, punk, industrial, metal, I love some me some good old rock and roll.

However, I am also a huge fan of 80s pop & New Wave, hip-hop/rap (mainly the old-school 80s & 90s stuff), orchestral, and even electronic music.

The only major genres of music I don't actively listen to are country, opera, and 21st-century pop.

Well, there are only so many poll options, so I couldn't do any specific genres.

Oh, and I actually did make a thread about least favourite genres as well: https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=239917

There are 10 options, and indie isn't that specific of a genre.  It's actually very, very broad.  Was just sad not to see it get the representation it deserves.  



I can enjoy songs from every genre, but I don't particularly like most popular songs from each of those genres aside from "Nu-Metal".

So I guess my favorite is "Nu-Metal" like System of a Down, Slipknot, Maximum the Hormone.
