What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

I would expect that the bulk of the music collections from the members of a classic rock forum would be mostly classic rock and rock but what other music is in your collection that you listen to.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

The bulk of my collection is still classic rock, believe it or not. I also love a lot of 90s rock, but my favorite 90s artists are Neil Young and Tom Petty!

My second favorite genre behind rock is pop, of which modern pop I consider to be the best. Third and fourth would be metal and rap, respective favorites being 80s thrash metal, 90s black metal, and 90s g-funk/gangsta rap.

I like a ton of outliers here and there with Bach and Son House and NON and what have you. But the larger my music collection gets, the higher I raise my standards for what I consider to be a "favorite." Y'know, e.g. in the past something I only listened to 100 times might have been a favorite but as time goes on it comes down to only the things that I'm absolutely, unbelievably crazy about. Things that defined my life and played on my stereo so much the CDs broke.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

Some artists I listen to, and don't consider classic rock (or 70's progressive rock). Rock and other genres:

Marillion (neo-prog: classic rock?)
Pearl Jam, AIC, Soundgarden, etc
Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, etc.
Prince
Bjork, Portishead, Massive Attack, etc.
Porcupine Tree (and some other 90's-00's prog)
Bob Marley (70's reggae: can be considered classic rock?)
Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Robert Johnson, etc.
Some occasional post-rock artists
Jazz: mostly Miles Davis, but some others too, especially jazz-fusion
Electronics: Not too much, I'd like to delve more into this genre, especially ambient.
Southamerican/spanish rock/pop/fusion bands from 80's-00's
Classical: Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Bach, etc.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

All sorts of rock, Blues if we're not counting that as rock, Some older pop/adult alternative/lite/whathaveyou, Civil Rights Era Folk (I just can't get into more modern folk), and because one of my closest friends is a music history major I get subjected to a lot of classical that I've become more open to.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

Classical music dominates my collection, followed by rock (progressive, classic), pop, jazz and some new age.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

hmm...define classic rock.


nah, but it's far from what I have the most of...there's lots of garage rock, indie rock, folk, country, hip-hop, metal and soul in there too. most could fall under the rock umbrella with a bit of trying since a lot of the folk and country stuff are folk rock/americana/alt country and the like.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

I like:

Old Country music and blue grass
Classical music...especially Bach
Older pop
some contemporary and Southern Rock
Foreign music of various kinds
Folk music
Soul...a must
Big Band stuff from the 40s...Glenn Miller per se.

Look, if it is music and it is good I will like it.

Re: What Do You Like Besides Classic Rock

I like a bit of the better quality pop music - La Roux (described as techno pop, crikey); also love Robbie Williams ... pop leaning towards rock.

And the Irish folk-protest singer Christy Moore is just out of this world.

That is interesting ... I have known a lot of guitarists who are into Bach. My long-suffering guitar teacher kept trying to get me to play it, but I was never good enough!!
