    I can find something worth listening to in pretty much any genre you care to name - except boybands, RnB and free-jazz.

    But for preference, outside metal I listen to:
    AOR , Prog, Hard Rock, 70s Rock and Anime soundtracks.

    I listen to anything from techno to emo. It all depends on what mood I'm in. But my favorite bands(non-metal) are Coheed & Cambria and The Smashing Pumpkins.

    Yeah. I don't listen to those bands either. The only non metal I listen to is some hardcore, and one or two punk bands that I happen to like.

    Psy/hard-trance
    Classical
    Ambient
    Darkwave
    Hard rock & rock

    Classical (lately I've been listening to more modern stuff like Ligeti)
    neoclassical (Elend, Dead Can Dance)
    ambient (raison d'etre, Tangerine Dream)
    world music (flamenco, I also enjoy traditional Asian music)

    and when I feel like taking a much needed break from good taste, I listen to a lot of happy hardcore/trance.

    PUNK ROCK!!!

    (Hardcore, streetpunk, and Oi! None of that pop-punk/emo shit. Emo is for whiny teenage guys...)

    Some of my favorite (non-metal, obviously) bands are A Global Threat, Cheap Sex, Leftover Crack, F-Minus, The Exploited, Virus, Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, The Descendents, Minor Threat, etc.

    I listen to a lot of alternative rock, all kinds of techno, and even, on rare occasion, some rap. I absolutely adore music from the Matrix movies, too. Some of my favorites are "Navaras" and "Masters of the Universe" by Juno Reactor, and "Mona Lisa/Overdrive" by Juno Reactor and Don Davis.

    I work in a nightclub and get to hear a lot of house and club music. Lately I've been listening to a lot of house, but I've also been listening to a lot of punk. Stiff Little Fingers, Refused, and Crass mainly.

    Ive been getting kinda tired of death and black metal. Its gotten really repetitive(spl?). Lately Ive been listening to some punk metal, alternative rock/metal, and some more mainstream stuff. I just wanted a little more emotion in the songs. some bands would be:
    Submersed
    Underoath
    My Chemical Romance
    Three Days Grace
    Linkin Park
    Skillet(their new album Collide is AWSOME, definitly check it out!)
    Godsmack
    even some Greenday

    I will tolerate almost anything besides rap and hip-hop. Hell, I'd rather listen to hours of polka music than that trash.

    Huge into all forms of progressive music, prog metal too, but that's irrelevant to the thread. Also love celtic folk, like anything from the Braveheart soundtrack. Also love a female singer named Mary Fahl. Her cd the Other Side of Time blows me away. Very atmospheric, sometimes folk-ish soft stuff. Not rock at all.

    These are almost metal, but Grindcore, Mallcore, Metalcore is good.
