Just wondering... Personally I listen to metal
I my own religion.. xD
If it's not written by Maynard, it's crap.
Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.
Rock, Grunge, Trash, Metal and whatever Judas Priest, Kiss and David Bowie qualify as.

I agree.. but it's mostly metal for me, but I listen to everything from blues to black metal
Post-rock for the most part.
i think you forgot the R&B? anyways..

Mainly some classic rock: Hendrix, Beatles, Zeppilin, and Springsteen to mention some of my favorites I also like metal although screamo doesn't appeal to me much.
Those are some pretty generic genres. There are a lot more categories that music can fall into. I like rock, but I absolutely hate that MTV crap - Nickelback, Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, and crap like that.
So I'll just list a top 5, ignoring genre.
2. Modest Mouse
5. Queens of the Stone Age
My top 3 switch positions with eachother a lot depending on what I'm in the mood for. And outside of those bands, I like quite a few. I even like some country music, but it doesn't fall into my favorites category.

That's not actually that big a stretch...
EDIT: Don't know why I forgot to post my opinion lol... Try again...
I put my vote in for Jazz, as I'm putting a bet in that noone else/very few others would, because most people tend to 'like' jazz, but not 'listen to' it. I put myself in both camps, as well as playing it. Which brings me to my real point on this. There aren't any genres I don't listen to, BUT that isn't to go with the copout a lot of the general public use 'Oh, I listen to anything.' I'm INCREDIBLY picky about my music. I find it hilarious when generic indie kids tell me they listen to everything, without adding the proviso 'that NME tells me to listen to.' I can always prove them wrong by throwing on some of the ole Gorgoroth, or some Avant Garde Jazz.
My criteria for music that I will happily listen to, is exactly that: there has to be something good to listen to. Something that I can enjoy for the 500th time, as much as I enjoyed the first time (and there damn well better be something worth enjoying the first time, or else I'm gonna snap the CD). I find that with jazz recordings, even as a drummer (and drumming has come on A LOT since the 1940 recordings I enjoy) I can still listen for the 500th time and be just as in awe at the rhythmic complexities, and improvised melody as I was the first time I tried to grasp what's going on in the song. I get the same from Dragonforce though as I do from Miles Davis (maybe less so ), or even from solo acoustic stuff, like David Meade, or more contemporarily acceptable, Secondhand Serenade. Music needs to have a depth that can take all of my attention, but it also should fit seemlessly in the background if I don't want to pay attention to it.
I will have to say though, I HATE indie. With a f*cking passion. The least deep, imaginative music in the entire world, with the least talent involved in playing it. However, I did say above that there's no genre that I outright say 'no' to. There are a couple of indie bands that I do enjoy - namely, Scouting for Girls and Oasis. I mean, I hate Oasis for what they did to music, but come on. Wonderwall is fucking addictive.
i mostly just listen to metal.
Where is the R&B? I voted Hip Hop, because there is no R&B.

For myself, it tends to be a mix of metal, rock and even some classical stuff. Majority of the stuff I listen to isn't all that main stream. You won't hear it on your broadcast radio stations in your city.
No required quests! And if I decide I want to be an assassin-cartographer-dancer-pastry chef who lives only to stalk and kill interior decorators, then that's who I want to be, even if it takes me four years to max all the skills and everyone else thinks I'm freaking nuts. -Madimorga-
Alt/Indie rock mostly for me. Though I listen to other genres as well.
lol, let me consult the playlist...
This week Im seeing some ska, little punk. Definatly some Funk this weekend and a little Alanis!
after 6 or so years, I had to change it a little...

We feel the same way then.. I only listen to music that I like listening to, and I almost never like any songs outside of those genres though..
I listen to everything but Jazz, I can't stand most country but there are a few songs I really likeI'm most into 80's metalSlayer Megadeth some Metallicaall glam rock i love glam rocksome hard shit like lamb of god and Daath cannibal corpse shit like thatsometimes im in the mood for other stuff like sevendustand chevellemy favorite is Dave Mustaine and Megadeth Edit: I have tremendous respect for any artist who can sing and play guitar at the same time and i almost refuse to listen to bands who don't play their own musical instruments or make their shit on a computerI'll listen to techno but I prefer not to... it's early and i can't type

This probably isn't your style, but you will certainly appreciate the talent.
Regarding the poll: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8. I never really cared for rap/hip-hop or pop music. I mostly listen to older stuff from the 60s - 90s and metal, but I have all genres to fit any mood (except cappin fools or whatever pop music's message is).
Anything that has some great guitar playing, but mostly metal
Heavy Metal, Speed Metal, Power Metal, Black Metal, Progressive Metal and melodic black metal.
Rock, especially progressive rock
Blues, Blues Rock
