I remember Prodigy! There's only one song I remember from a long long time ago, a super popular one that was on MTV all the time. What's it called?

Very true.

The only music that I dislike a lot is the trance, dance and techno type music. Even though some of it is good, I find the majority of it painful to listen to.

Smack My Bitch Up?

Pretty good track, but you could take pretty much any 25-second sample of it and have the entire song.

Then again, the same could be said for pretty much every Guilty Gear track I have, so eh!

I like rap, when it's good. But as far as I'm concerned, it's usually not.

I think he might have meant firestarter or breathe.

Only thing that really matters to me that the message of the music is not retarded. Also it should be original. When talking about rap the likes of 50Cent with his unoriginal songs about girls money and his bulletproof car have given rap a bad name and it annoys me. Actually the same thing applies to any type of music: Someones been listening to MTV and hears some song and thinks "Wow this is really shit" and never give that kind of music a second chance ever again.

The album with those songs (prodigy) is called "The Fat of the Land" and is a great album from beginning to end.

Melodeath? Lol, thats a new name in my ears.

Genres is one thing, but the hordes of subgenres within subgenres in the metal scene is ridicilous. I did use to like the old in flames stuff, from clayman and out they kinda lost me though.. Its not the most impressive stuff but its pretty good. If we stretch a bit im sure "math" metal would pass as death metal in most peoples (outside of the metal scene) ears. And within in that genre you find some pretty impressive song construction. For technical death metal ive grown to love Necrophagist

Edit: And if we stretch a bit further i think we can call most Opeth albums heavely death metal influenced with a hint of doom and prog. And they have some awesome song constructions going on aswell :]

The Postal Service! I forgot untill like yesterday. The Postal Service is awesome.

Ok, lemmie go pokin' around in my CD collection. It's not so wierd as my mp3 collection (and a lot smaller) but it's still a pretty esoteric mix. In no particular order...
ABBA
'Princess Mononoke' Soundtrack
No Doubt* (Self Titled, Tragic Kingdom, Return of Saturn, and Rock Steady)
Queen
Dogs Die In Hot Cars (<- Good shit!)
311
Garbage
Flogging Molly
They Might Be Giants

*I hear (from friends whos opinion I trust) that Gwen Stefani's solo stuf is total shit so I've stayed away from it.

Player, download this one song. It may not be to your taste but it's arranged and develops like very few trance/techno-ish songs do (Trance, by it's nature, tends to get really boring for me). A lot of techno is kinda too bombastic for me, when it's just a beat drowning out all the music but there is a bunch I like. (Mostly from ocremix. I don't get around to much techno otherwise)

I like a lot of jazz. John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis.
I also like Jamie Cullum, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, and Bing Crosby.
Classical, I like Bach (Cello suites), The planet suites, Verdi, Chopin.
Drum and Bass, I like pendulum.

Odd but good random finds: Scott Jacoby (pop/funk), Caetano Veloso (bossa nova), Dispatch (folk rock), Herbie Hancock (funk), Hepcat (real ska). Have a look into each of them.


I'm a big fan of bossa nova as well.
One of my more unusual tastes is anything vaguely Spaghetti Western; Calexico, Bjorn Ollson (but nothing soundtrack like - Ennio Morricone).

Also although it may be considered emo, I'm a massive Billy Talent fan.

Familiar with any of those?

Well Just came back from a Battle of The Bands Show. Well it kinda of suck. The guitar playing was kick ass but when it got to the vocals fuck, that's when you realized that the band is emocore or metalcore. High Pitch voice screams = Emo, Deep voice scream = Metal. There was one death metal band that was kick ass, they sang in Spanish. Fuck there's this famous band here where I live call Broken Endings and fucking gay ass emo fags, not sure why they have so many fans. Only two good bands out of seven. Meh I guess it wasn't worth the five bucks

FT how can you not like death metal, Slayer? Megadeth? Metallica?(Kill em all album) etc...

Geokill, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer AREN'T death metal. They're thrash metal, or just plain old heavy metal. There's a HUGE difference.

Also, the three bands you mentioned are 3/4ths of the thrash metal pioneers, the other group being Anthrax.

For death metal, albeit extremely mainstream, try some Cannibal Corpse and tell me if there's not a difference between Metallica and them.
