ANSWER #4 of 9

I don't like metal. I think it's shite.

there are the odd songs that can be good but as a genre it's pretty much corporate wank, making music to sell records with no meaning.

everything in metal is overdone. it's like there's a drum solo, a guitar solo and everything else going at full pelt all the time. I don't get how it sounds good. head ache!

ANSWER #6 of 9

Because it all sounds so different; I've never heard two metal songs that sound a lot alike, unlike a lot of the other types of music that you can barely tell two songs apart. I could never get tired of metal music. I'd have to say my favorite bands are probably the chiodos, bring me the horizon, & dream theater.

ANSWER #8 of 9

I have respect for all music types usually.

Usually what I listen to, is based off what kind of mood I'm in. When I tend to be more angry, I listen to metal/hard rock. Usually something like Cradle of Filth, or Cannbal Corpse, or something to that effect; At the same time I don't mind playing some Disturbed, Atreyu, Rise Against, A7X... I like a lot of music.

Once that mood alleviates, you never know what goes on next.. could be country, could be techno, it could even be rap. Y'never know with me ;)
