    Might be a little bit out of place in a metal based forum, but I think, the music industry is so diverse and full of different styles, that just metal all the time starts to seriously feel boring at some point...

    Well, I'll start off - I really like Country, Pop rock, Electronic, Rap(only a few specific ones, not a big fan of the genre), and Neo-prog. These are some of my favourite artists/bands outside the metal scene -

    IQ
    Daughtry
    John Berry
    Bryan Austin
    Infected Mushroom
    Skrillex
    Twelfth Night
    Sentinel
    Nickelback
    Theory of a Deadman
    Breaking Benjamin
    Shinedown

    well, what about you?

    old folk rock from the 60s/70s like fairport convention and steeleye span, to new folky 00s/10s pop/rock like first aid kit and fleet foxes.
    60s/70s dance/pop like abba and chic and motown music.
    any prog/symphonic rock from any decade, from genesis to yezda urfa.
    80s pop like duran duran, alphaville, cyndi lauper and cross-over 80s pop like talk talk.
    60s/70s/80s rock like creedence clearwater revival, van halen, the doors and deep purple.
    roots raggae like augustus pablos and midnite.
    film composers like basil pouledaris (conan), john williams (jurassic park), howard shore (LOTR), and in particular ennio morricone. also, goblin (gallo/horror movies).
    new age stuff like enya and eri sugai.
    a lot of hard-to-categorize music, but often within the rock domain, like mr. bungle.
    folky singer/songwriters, like neil young, jeff buckley and more obscure ones like shelagh mcdonald.
    classical music like bach, beethoven, holst.
    jazz, but pretty selective as I'm not very well-oriented in the genre; coltrane and davis.
    modern pop/dance/whatevs like daft punk, adele, and robyn.
    oh yeah, and country (I guess?); I've got a weakness for lee hazlewood and kenny rogers.

    Yes... Rio is short for rock in opposition. Frank Zappa was famous for this genre....

    Listen to Magma. That's pure Zeuhl. Actually they invented that word (means "celestial" in Kobaian language o_O )

    I listen to lots of non-metal. Mostly folk, rock, soul, and some blues.

    It's easier to say what I don't listen to.

    I don't listen to modern radio pop, EDM, grunge, anything "core", or nu-metal, alt-metal.

    I havent done this yet because im lazy, but Ken nailed it for.me too. Except grunge.. I love Soundgarden, AIC, and the Screaming Trees especially. I find Nirvana to be overrated(except for Bleach).

    Wait, whats EDM?
