    I like:
    1) West African, especially Mali, music eg Oumou Sangare
    2) Roots rock, eg early Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal
    3) Delta and swamp blues
    3) Zydeco
    4) Original punk, eg Clash and Sex Pistols
    5) Blues-based jazz, eg Wynton Marsalis

    I cannot stand:
    1) Rap
    2) Heavy metal
    3) Hard rock
    4) Glam rock
    5) Concept rock, eg Alan Parsons Project, Tangerine Dream
    6) Lite rock
    7) Cool jazz
    8) Soul
    9) Ballads
    10) Anything by Mariah Carey

    I have spoken, now fall in line.

    9) Free form, avant garde jazz
    10) Light classical music, eg Vivaldi

    All bow to the supremacy of Heavy Metal!!! The power! The energy! The aggression! The technique! The emotion!

    Classical comes in second place, with the more energetic classical being generally better.

    Progressive and Symphonic Rock!

    I 2nd that.

    I generally listen to stuff that is labeled as alt. rock, classic rock, rap, jazz, and classical

    nothing that i really hate. i've grown tired of R&B, and don't really listen to contry, or heavy metal.

    I believe that the grunge genre produced better music than any other.

    What are you saying?
    You think bands like Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Jane's Addiction, Camper van Beethoven, Soundgarden and REM are just chopped liver?

    I like Classical Music and Opera. I can not stand todays music. It has died on me. The only music i find beautiful is Classical music.

    the grunge was some of the last good music produced. much of today's music is too molded, like they tried to follow a formula to get on the radio/mtv. the old stuff speaks, it has a purpose, and it was more creative. the only thing that comes close is some of the independent/underground stuff, that's the only place where music hasn't been corrupted by money.

    I 2nd Zeronem - (page 1). Classical opera are my favourite music, simply because it is beautiful and as it is wonderful to just listen to.

    I hate most modern day music, mainly because I cannot listen to it, and because it is not music, but noise. (Especially heavy metal, urban and R&B.) Though of course, all people have their own tastes.

    ^^^ Zero, that rocks.

    Honestly, I don't think I could say one genre is best -- there are so many good ones. I like pretty much everything mentioned here, with the exceptions of Mariah Carey, opera, and cool/lite/adult music. Playlist usually includes everything from John Lee Hooker to the Ramones, Pink Floyd, Eminem, Zep, Aphex Twin, Hank Williams...

    Hard (but not too hard) Rock, Classical (preferably piano solo, but any kind of Classical is good by me), and Country.

    I've been cloned

    What I was going to say Dissident Dan has said almost exactly the same. Scary. Nothing for me beats the power of Metal. Good classical music comes a close second.

    Rock on my friends.
