    i am the last of the NYC old school punk generation. The NY Dolls, Ramones, Plasmatics, The Clash and of course The Sex Pistols. Give me a guy who knows only 2 guitar cords and can scream and i am happy.

    YES, more YES, then there's Jon Anderson, Mozart Beethoven Handel Vivaldi (I play mostly these on Violin but listen a lot). Not good with names, and the radio rarely names the songs they play in any kind of order you can follow, but there is a lot of new songs I like too. Since I am an audiophile, I build my own speakers, the sound recording quality must be really good, or forget it. 96 Khz recordings sound good, since most CD are at 48 kz. they stink. :)

    I like pretty much any heavy metal but I'm the opposite of you in that I prefer sore throat metal. Bolt Thrower, Obituary and Death when I'm in old-school mode, Arch Enemy, Lamb Of God and Killswitch Engage being my preferred modern growls. Arch Enemy is my particular favourite as I have a bit of a thing for symphonic and melody death metal at the moment.

    I used to be a big Metallica fan, but anything since the Black Album is dead to me. I have to grudgingly admit that their latest album Death Magnetic is a bit more up my street but the damage is done. Plus they're driven by commercialism and personal gain rather than really caring much about the fans. That's true for most bands, but at least the others are honest about it. Metallica tell everyone it's all for the fans but it's not. Damn their black hearts.

    Other interests include soundtrack albums and their composers. Michael Giacchino (Lost, 2009 Star Trek), Christopher Franke (Babylon 5) and Hans Zimmer (Nolan's Batman films) being the perennial favourites.

    When I'm in the mood for some classical, I love a bit of Shostakovich. 8th and 9th symphonies bring the metal moods from an orchestra. Best of both worlds...

    I grew up listening to the Osmonds, & Partridge Family. Still do occasionally.
    I like Country, Toby Keith, Shania Twain, Kieth Urban, Dixie Chicks, SHeDaisy
    to name a few.
    But currently, I LOVE a group I can not buy anything of locally.

    Sorry to offend you Kiyoshi, but I Have become obsessed with KvK.
    The Childrens group Kinderen Voor Kinderen from Hilversam/Amsterdam!!

    I have found Only 4 CD's from US sellers. If I could, I would purchase
    ALL their CD's & DVD's.
    I do have one DVD, but can not play it, as it is a Region 2 disc,
    and US spec is region 1

    The other problem I have with my new favorite Music, as a US citizen,
    I only know English, Though I AM learning!
    I need translations to be able to understand what the kids are singing.

    I like anything and everything!
    Here are a few great Canadian bands: The Tragically Hip, Great Big Sea, Spirit of the West, not to mention Rush and The Guess Who (I refuse to acknowledge Justin Bieber- I guess I'm just too old). I'm sure you might have heard of a couple of them ;)
    I also listen to bagpipe music, but that may only appeal to me

    "Mickey Mouse Club" & "THE Party". Members of MMC that became a
    Group for a short time

    MMC only released ONE, I have it as both Cassette & CD,
    and The Party only offered 4. I have their First as both CD & Cassette, 2 & 3 as Cassette only. I did not even know about the fourth til seeing it on evilbay a
    few years ago.

    Same here.

    I too love soundtracks, which I consider contemporary classical music. Basil Poledouris (Conan the Barbarian, Hunt for Red October, Starship Troopers), John Williams (Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark), Jerry Goldsmith (Star Trek TNG, Total Recall [Arnold version], The 13th Warrior) and Hans Zimmer (Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Nolan's Batman) are some of my favorites.

    Don't know how I missed this one, I am mostly into what is termed "Dinosaur Rock" nowadays.

    AC/DC, Aerosmith. Alice Cooper, Allman Bros Band, Alvin Lee & Ten Years After, America, BTO, Bad Company, Badfinger, The Band, BB King, Beastie Boys, Beatles, Bee Gees, Billy Idol, The Black Crowes, Black Eyed Peas, Black Oak Arkansas, Black Sabbath, Blind Faith, Blue Oyster Cult, Blues Brothers, Blues Travelers, Clapton, and the list just keeps on going.

    I carry an 80 Gigabyte Zune that is loaded up with a great deal of my collection but with Microsoft bowing out of the music end of things I find myself having to compute with Fruit and going with the iPhone 4 that my company has issued to me I also have a tiny 2 gig Shuffle that I carry on an arm band when I go out for walks. The Zune goes with me to work every day for now though. According to iTunes I have nearly a months worth of music in my collection, not all of it is rock, there is country, blues, a little classical hard to pin me down completely.

    Hi i'm mainly into 70s and 80s music and a while back i was looking for some instrumental music to use in my home photo slide shows and came across a contemporary jazz band called The Rippingtons formed in 1985 by guitarist Russ Freeman.
    I now own all their albums (some i had to buy second hand) and cant get enough of their music. you can check out some of their live performances on Youtube and they also have their own website Rippingtons.com.

    YES, AWBH, Mozar, Bacharinni, Vivaldi, did I say YES, America, Simon and Garfunkel, Paul Simon without Garfunkel, Garfunkel, I like Funk, That song, "Kissing the Rain", that song just blows me away. I play violin and there are many more that would probably bore the heck of a lot of people but this one is incredible, Itimar Zorman playing "Fantasie" by Camille Saint Saens" (written when he was 77 years old), has to be one of the best violins song's I have ever heard (accompanied by an excellent Harpist), just like everyone else, too many songs to list. Thank God for music!! :)

    Kissing the Rain (there are a couple of versions of this)

    Itimar Zorman playing faintasie by Camille Saint Sean, the Violin is a 1739 Guaneri on loan to him, probably worth 9 to 12 million bucks!
