  1. According to my friends my music is too diverse. One min im chilling listening to a Jimmy Page solo, the next im headbanging to some Slayer, then ill be kickin it with Eminem, and then im blasting some Dubstep. Surely this is nothing out of the ordinary, what about you blades?
  2. idk i just hate sublime
  3. Im not a big fan of them besides "Santeria". Thats not how i chose my name though:p
  4. damnit i failed...
  5. I listen to everything... I listen to Gucci mane, lil wayne, juicy j, gorilla zoe, young money, immortal technique, deltron 3030, spm, diabolic, gravediggaz wutang and everything in between... I also like rock believe it or not like children of bodom, slayer, red hot chili peppers, guns and roses etc im the probably the most diverse person ever i like some jumpstyle and hardstyle too

  7. that is me rapping i think im pretty good but nobody will respond to my thread about my song or give me feedback

    thanks tho preciate it

  8. Are you kidding? They're all hip-hop musicians.

    I have around 3000 songs of hip-hop. A rapidly expanding collection of about 500 indie/modern rock tracks. Then probably about 200 electro tracks I don't really listen to heaps but whip out when I have parties. Plenty of random stuff that's fun to smoke to, bands like The Police, LZ, Pink Floyd are all in there.

    I'm always looking to broaden my horizons. So I don't think I'm very diverse as I tend to get into a genre and go through it really hard to find heaps of tunes I dig. Doing that with indie. Then I always fall back on my mammoth hip-hop collection.
  9. Yeah man, I see no reason not to be open to music from all genres, but more than that I just listen to stuff that most people haven't even heard of nowadays.
    My tastes range from this kinda stuff:

    I got like 96,000 tracks in my mp3 collection. My mom started me out with The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Metallica, with most 'classic' blues rock in between. Growing up listening to the radio, I got mostly 90s alternative and really got into Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck, CAKE, Powerman 5000, Smashing Pumpkins, and Godsmack. This lasted me up through high school when I discovered G-Funk like Warren G and Deltron 3030 came out the year I discovered early 90s west coast hiphop, so I was completely immersed in Deltron for a few years. :p

    I branched out into more 'underground', abstract, alternative hip-hop with Gift of Gab, Blackalicious, DJ Shadow going to college at UC Davis, and that's where they graduated from. Not sure how I came up on them. Maybe ... and then someone showed me Aesop Rock around '06 and he's been my most played artist of all time. I delved deep into rap history, starting at scratch and working my way forward, ignoring most of the top40 acts over time. I've got loose ends up and down, but I'm fairly well versed in hip-hop.

    Simultaneously, I got sucked back into the 60s and 70s, catching all the psychedelic rock I could, digging deep in to prog music, hitting up the nooks and crannies for more hidden gems. I've got enough prog music to last me a few months without hearing a song twice, and still there's more. Surprisingly, there's a ton of Italian Dream Theater-esque bands over there. I went backwards and forwards on prog. King Crimson, Van der Graaf Generator, and then stuff like Gong, Gentle Giant, which led me down the road to Ozric Tentacles and I opened up to electronic music and synth. I got heavily into space rock and still am. Secret Saucer, Sula Bassana, Hidria Spacefolk etc.

    I got really into guitar virtuosos, and downtempo electronic music, dubstep, folk punk, and gypsy punk with those Gogol Bordello fellows. Really enjoy Allamailan Vasarat as well.

    My can say this a whole lot better. Link in sig. I encourage you to add me and/or check out my radio station if you're looking for some fresh ideas.

    So, in short, yeah OP I have people say that to me too but I know there's too much good stuff to be complacent hearing the same 50 artists for decades.

    Here's a typical 10 song shuffle...

    What I always figure I hate, I learn I don't hate. I just haven't found the right band/songs. I highly dislike popular country music (current), but I like a lot of classic country style, I like bluegrass, etc., and I like when bands like CAKE show their country flare amidst their alternative catalog. I learned I really love instrumental music, and a singer really needs to have something special if I'm to really enjoy the music for a long time. Screaming music I still have trouble with, but even here I found something: Refused. Fuckin awesome. 2 in 100 bands with screaming singers, I can handle. I'm still exploring here. Spanish music. I was like... really? But, Gypsy Kings lay down some slick tunes, and so do Rodrigo and Gabriela with more ferocity.

    I need some Hawaiian music. That's my next stop.
  16. That has to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. Everyone should have diverse music taste, it's small minded to just stick to one genre.
  17. I like everything from Agnostic Front to ZZ Top. :smoking:
  18. Your music can't be too diverse. I'll just do a random list for me:
    Pink Floyd to Metallica, Eminem to Snoop Dogg, Sublime to Metallica, Collie Buddz to Jimi Hendrix. Could keep going on and on lol. Also love a lotta electronic styles like dnb & dubstep.
  19. but with liking so much different kinds of music can you really appreciate what each artist has to offer?
