    I like whatever category this falls into,

    Rolling Stones,
    Guns N'Roses,

    I could listen to those 3 all day long, and here are some that i like just not as much,

    Bon Jovi,
    David Bowie,
    Izzy stradlin.
    Meat loaf.

    Rock: from Evanescence (which, I think, is considered "Alternative Rock") to Disturbed. I like Creed, Metallica, GodSmack (just some of their songs), Nickelback, Default, 3 doors down, etc...

    Classical (particularly piano): Chopin (he's my new favorite), Schumman (previous favorite), Vivaldi, Beethoven, Shubert, Bach, Handel, Mendelson, Debussy, etc...

    i personally can't think of a form of music i don't like at least one song in. my least favorites would probobly be country/western or opera, but i too love the classics and some of the newer stuff. (some barely qualifies as music to me.)

    NIN is great...PJ harvey, depeche mode, david bowie, lou reed, things like that. This list could go on for a long time, so I'll stop here.

    In the classical, I *LOVE* beethoven.

    Yep, I'm one of those classical music people too.
    Dvorak for me, with some Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Grieg, Rachmaninov, Einaudi, Vivaldi and some other names I don't remember/can't spell.

    Don't really like Beethoven/Mozart too much. Just me, probably.

    To me, the 1960's is "The Decade" for music, both in rock (Beatles, Stones, Cream, Hendrix,...) and soul (James Brown, Temptations, Sly and the Family Stone, Aretha,...). The good vibes continued into the early 70's with Zeppelin, and whoever from the above list survived the 60's, but things quickly got lame and never quite recovered IMO. I like very few bands from the mid-70's on.

    The 2nd movement of the 9th symphony is my absolute favorite. He's got this amazing intensity and vision.

    Yeah, I really like Rachmaninov, too - especially "Bells of Moscow".

    Dvoràk is one of my personal favorites too! i love the symphyomies in "from the new world". very similar style to another one of my favorites John Williams (a more modern composer). most of the other ones you named i also like, but i think Mozart and Beethover are great. (some of their stuff is a bit overplayed though)
