[color=0099cc]So yeah, what music do you people listen to? I'm a metalhead, albeit not extreme metal. That screaming stuff's just no.

My favourite bands are Dream Theater, Metallica, Megadeth, Coheed and Cambria, and Breaking Benjamin. I also love the classic stuff like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Dio, etc. I also for some reason like some stuff by Slayer, even though the really shouldn't be my thing. I left alot of stuff out. I used to have a huge comprehensive list on facebook, but they revamped theprofiles and killed my list. -_-

And as a sort of "guilty pleasure" I like the All-American Rejects, Avril Lavigne, and alot of 80s pop before it all turned into rapping about shallow things with synthesized music.

Anyway, what about you guys?

My musical taste is all over the place... There's not really any set genre. I listen to: Thin Lizzy, The Pogues, Guns N' Roses, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix... The list goes on for some time, and doesn't form any sort of pattern.

[color=0099cc]Takal, your music's pretty great. Less heavy than the stuff I listen to, but still great.

And Monasti, you've got some good bands, but the fact Slipknot is there renders your entire list moot. You are a terrible person.

Thanks!

I can't really judge you - I've never heard Dream Theater, Megadeth, Coheed and Cambria or Dio, but I like most of the Iron Maiden my brother has, and he's introducing me to Metallica as we speak - and it's not bad. As for Breaking Benjamin, I've only ever heard 'Blow Me Away,' but it made the grade, and it's on my MP3 player.

P.S. Kieran (Porsche 997) asks Monasti if he likes 'Bullet for My Valentine.'

[color=0099cc]And all that Metallica hate on tth... -_- Glad you're liking them though. Which stuff have you heard?

As for Dio, I think you'd like him. He's alder, like your bands. a bit heavier, but still sort of a crossover between both our musical realms. And Dream Theater's awesome if you like long songs... and by long I mean anywhere from 2 minutes to and hour.

Also that breaking benjamin song's good, though hardly one of their best. It was made specifically for Halo. You should look up Diary Of Jane, So Cold, Dance With The Devil, and Give Me A Sign.

The sone was: "Enter Sandman." I'll look 'em up later - 11PM is scarecly the time to go waking up the neighbours with Metal...

I only play Heroic/Legendary so I have to spend an hour to get to that bit. And it's my favourite fight of the whole series, though not just for the music!

[color=0099cc]Wait, that song was actually in the game? I thought it was just on the fake soundtrack thing...

And yeah, Enter Sandman's a great song. Don't know if you'd like their earlier stuff too much... it's really fast. And the dude sort of barks instead on singing normally.

Yeah, but they reduced the vocals to nothing. It still plays everything else until you leave the room, when it just cuts to the end of the last chorus.

I've got nothing against fast music, but barking...

[color=0099cc]Their second album, Ride The Lightning, I think you could easily handle that. It's got some great melodies and stuff mixed in with the nuttiness. Dunno about the next two though. Listen to "One", just to sample the barking. It's their most famous song.

My favorites are the classics, like the Beatles, the stones, the who, zeppelin, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd. But I'm also into pop from the 60's 70's & 80's, prog, some metal, grunge, some alternative stuff, some rap, and techno.

Well, I dont have much music, pretty much all of it is collectors edition sountracks from things I'e personally bought, or Christmas gifts.

*Starcraft 2 wings of Liberty soundtrack
*Ghost In The Shell S.A.C. and S.S.S. soundtracks
*Beetlejuice soundtracks
*The two free Bionicle themed songs
*Dinosaurs Big Songs...From that tv show sitcom with all the puppets, it was a christmas gift >_>
*A few Carmen CDs (Another Christmas gift), a Christian music person. The music and lyrics aren't that bad actually.

Im sure theres a few Im forgetting, but Ive got no more than 15 music CDs altogether. I guess other things caught my interest before music had a chance to become a significant interest to me.

My brother was listening to some sort of metal band where they basicaly sing "words" like pum da diddly instead of using instruments. There were some repricussion instruments, and maybe drums but no guitars or anything like that.

[color=0099cc]When did you become a fan of screaming? Last I heard you only liked it in moderation.

And I don't know if it counts as metal without guitars... that's kinda' the whole point of metal, isn't it?

[color=0099cc]No. Just no. That's like comparing Belgian chocolate to edible oil products. No.

Metallica is -the- most famous, best selling, and successful Metal bands of all time.

Slipknot's just a bunch of wannabes in stupid masks who think they're god's gift to music.

No.

(Also, of course, this is all my opinion. I don't want to come off as all elitist like everyone on BZP, but slipknot is the only band that I absolutely despise.)

@Xin: Considering the cuurent state of hip-hop and a decent amount of pop music in general, fame, sales, and success do not dictate a good artist. Just sayin', that's not a real good defense.

So... uh... Skillet should just be called "Et" because there's no Skill in their music.

[color=0099cc]Fair enough, but they were the best selling band of the 80s, and the 80s were awesome in every aspect music-wise.

My point is slipknot is terrible. And you better not go revoke that opinion on me aswell, because I may have to stop talking to you if that happens.

No, I still don't care for Slipknot. Never saw the appeal.

There are much better artists out there like, say, Alter Bridge, which is a really cool band. Honestly, their new AB III album is the best thing released in 2010, beating out Godsmack's, Ozzy's, Slash's, Linkin Park's, and a whole load of others' new releases. I think only a Tesla album could`ve been better.
