    If yes, what?

    Personally, over 90% of my music listening time is metal (it's just so damn diverse!), all sub-genres except black, power, nu, math and all the "cores." I mostly listen to prog metal/rock, thrash and death.

    Other genres that I like include: jazz, blues, rock, classical music, flamenco, a bit grunge, and I don't know what genre they fall under but, Rodrigo y Gabriela. I tried to like other genres like rap and pop, but just couldn't. I'm open to suggestions, however. :)

    I like some of Burzum's ambient material. I like some progressive rock as well, like Rush.

    I don't like Gabber. Not very big on Electro Swing either. Also Happy Hardcore can fuck off.

    I just listen to a few metal bands. Most of the bands I like are pop punk, alt rock, or metalcore. And I love classical, especially baroque!

    I also like a lot of straight ahead 60s rock like The Animals and The Yardbirds. Grunge is good as well, but I personally see it as a type of metal.

    Prog rock, noise rock, post-punk, funk, and soul make up most of my non-metal listening. Plus all my autismal video game music.

    Mostly prog rock, and i LOVE Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson. Besides, post rock and some indie pop/rock, and a bit of punk and electronic music.

    Fuckin' right. Necro is awesome.

    When it comes to rap I like, I don't like many projects but this is what I do like:

    Necro
    Brotha Lynch Hung
    Twisted Insane
    Tech N9ne
    Ill Bill
    X-Raided
    Some Hopsin songs (although I really hate that thing he does where he raps at a normal volume then he will rap one word really LOUDLY for no reason other than a shock effect)
    The Rangers
    Snow Tha Product
    Twista
    Old Eminem (say what you want, the first couple Eminem albums rule)
    Busta Rhymes
    Coolio (I remember him having cool songs when I was a kid)
    Wu-Tang Clan

    I listen to heavy rock and prog from the 1970s, post-punk, dream pop, ambient, noise, darkwave, shoegaze, neofolk, industrial, blues and film and game soundtracks. There's other stuff, but that's the bulk of it.

    Not really genre-specific, but I've always had phases where for a year or more I'd primarily listen to a single band. Started a long time ago with Queen, then Deep Purple (rock), Red Hot Chili Peppers (funk/rap/whatever), a short Blues phase (Muddy Waters & BB King), Buty(jazz/pop), Rammstein, etc... I still enjoy listening to some of those artists from time to time and I still play some blues and simple jazz stuff on my guitar daily. Makes things a bit more "colorful" as it gives a nice contrast to harder genres and it's always nice to have some other influences help keep an open mind for when I write my own little songs.

    Early Cocteau Twins and Jesus and Mary Chain. A lot of it also borders on post-punk or shoegaze, so things like The Chameleons too. I think that the Cocteaus are the best though.
