I have mixed tastes myself. I like Colplay, Cat Empire, Linkin Park and I absolutely love Yo Yo Ma.
I do play the cello, which I guess explains the Yo Yo Ma obsession, but anyway...

Your turn. Your turns? Your turn.:m046::violin::music:

Bomb the Music Industry
Big D and the Kid's Table
Operation Ivy
Suicide Machines
The Slackers
The Toasters

I'm pretty much into ska/punk/reggae
I also have obsessions with Jazz and Brazilian guitar but I don't feel like making a huge list and I doubt people would want to read it.
I like a smattering of everything. From my facebook (because I'm lazy):

Boards of Canada
Brand New
Circa Survive
Death Cab for Cutie
Joy Division
Minus the Bear
My Bloody Valentine
the Postal Service

This list doesn't begin to cover everything I listen to. I love "real" emo like City of Caterpillar and Circle Takes the Square.

I also dig Miles Davis but I'm always listening to other stuff so I don't ever really have the mindset to look for more jazz.
I'm not sure about jazz. I mean, I like it, but I don't really listen to it.
The closest thing that I've listened to more than once would probably be Yo Yo Ma and the Bolling Jazz Piano Trio. That was cool.
listen to my radio show! i'm exploring some great jazz right now.

6. Billy Talent
4. Puddle Of Mudd

Aaand again:

(I so love this group, although their last album is quite milder than I expected...)

I used to like Linkin Park, but their last CD was pretty low ranking.

Other than that...

- Hans Zimmer
- Nobuo Uematsu
- 30 seconds to mars
- Poets of the fall
- Michael Jackson
- Vertical Horizon
- Offspring
- Westlife...

There you go, a list that makes no musical sense. :3
  • Rage Against the Machine
  • Pitbull
  • The Game
  • Weezer
  • Disturbed
  • Eminem
  • Shakira (only the songs in Spanish)
  • Lifehouse
  • T.I.
  • Rakim y Ken-Y
  • Sepultura
(Not in that order)
I'm just posting from my Facebook, but I deleted the ones that are not necessary:

The Mars Volta, At the Drive-in, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Can, Death From Above 1979,
Dead Can Dance, Bj

I'm really all over the map musically. I go through phases and I don't have any particular bands I follow religiously; usually, I'll only like one or two tracks of a band's album and to be, and to me, I guess that can loosely constitute me as 'liking' that particular artist. I never consider myself a "true fan" of anything.

I've enjoyed,

Nine Inch Nails
Marilyn Manson
Billy Idol
Michael Jackson
Dead Can Dance
ES PostHumos
Immediate Music
Two Steps from Hell
Alanis Morsette
Foo Fighters
Smashing Pumpkins (pre-2000's)

I tried getting into hardcore Heavy metal, but it just scared the shit into me.
My music taste is dominantly Oshare and Visual Kei..:

Antique Caf
I like of foreign music:

Sigur Ros
Luna Sea
Siam Shade
Massive Attack

I like a few domestic bands too:
Dream Theater

I also like jazz and classical... I know that's really broad but I haven't narrowed it down much farther than that.
Hard to go wrong with Sinatra, Miles Davis, Bach, and Beethoven though :m177:

And horray for TheDaringHatTrick and Jasmine for listning to DCD as well! :D
