View Full Version : So what do you actively listen to that isn't rock or metal?

Inspired by TheWildAndTheYoung's typically teenage narrow tastes (we were all there).

What does everyone actively listen to that isn't rock or metal, now they've grown up? And I don't mean "guilty pleasures" because feeling guilty about listening to music is fucking pathetic.

For me:


A crap-ton of blues (examples available on request)
Paul Weller
The grittier end of folk (examples available on request)
Neo-folk (examples available on request)
"Outlaw" country (examples available on request)
Certain albums by the likes of Alanis Morissette, Joan Osborne, Sheryl Crow, Meredith Brooks, etc.
Depeche Mode


There's probably a little more, but that's the main stuff.

When I was 15, I discovered prog rock and I stopped being an OMG METAL ONLY guy. Metal is still my overall clear-cut favorite, and prog-rock in 2nd place behind it. Since then I've expanded to be fairly into Jazz, Hip hop, and a pretty large range of electronic musics. No discriminating if it makes my ears happy.

Some post-rock, some hip-hop (old school 1990s stuff) and a hell of a lot of video game music. I really like hard trance too. And the odd pop or top-40 single, but I never buy those albums.

I like some electric blues like Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, etc. (Johnny Winter will probably be my next concert; he's playing here at the end of this week.)

Also a lot of jazz fusion, some of which is pretty similar to rock anyway.

I like some traditional Celtic music, like Altan, who I was very lucky to see play in March 2012. Fantastic.

I like a lot of pop music too, particularly the variety that leans towards rock (as opposed to dance/club/R&B).

For classical I tend to like smaller-scale stuff: solo pieces, quartets, concertos that revolve around one featured instrument.

Well when you exclude rock music as a whole, I guess pretty much just rap. The only rap artists i'm an active fan of (e.g. not just a couple of songs here or there) are Eminem, Tech N9ne, Nas, and DMX.

I do enjoy God is An Astronaut, who are more of an instrumental post-rock band. Mindless Self Indulgence is one of my favourite bands, and while they have a lot of EDM and a few hip hop influences, they're still rooted in rock music.

Punk - Just getting into it some more. I'm sure this still counts in the "rock/metal" category, but whatevs.

Hip Hop/Rap - I never thought I'd ever like Hip Hop or Rap after my small phase in Middle School, thought it sucked, was stupid, hated it so much... Wu Tang Clan and Dr. Dre are now my go to artists when I don't know what to listen to. ;)

Hip Hop: Not a ton of active listening, but I always bump Nas and Mos Def when driving for some reason and there are some albums I do love when I'm in the mood. Still looking to get into more of this genre, Sep's hip hop thread has been a goldmine.

R&B/Soul/Funk: James Brown is awesome all the time, and Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder is one of my favorite albums. I also recently picked up an Al Green greatest hits album that fricken rules. Mothership Connection by Parliament is also fucking awesome and is one of the best late night driving albums ever. If Mitch Ryder goes under here, his All Hits album is just way too much fun. There's some others, but the above is what I regularly listen to.

Blues/Oldies: I've casually been into blues and early '50s rock and roll for years and years, and though I wouldn't say I "actively" listen to it, I always love the music when I'm in the mood for it. I've been digging Howlin' Wolf a lot lately. If SRV counts, he's always been a favorite since I was somewhat young. I also spent the last year getting into Little Richard. He's just fucking awesome in the same over the top way that James Brown is.

Disco: Saturday Night Fever soundtrack is MY JAM.

Secret Chiefs 3: I don't know what genre they are, but I don't think they're rock or metal and they rule. It's like surf music from hell, but with random exotic shit going on.

Also Soundtrack to Shaft. 'Nuff said.

And I don't mean "guilty pleasures" because feeling guilty about listening to music is fucking pathetic.

This friends, is truth.

Nothing revolutionary here, I must admit. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr., The Highwaymen, Shooter Jennings, Townes Van Zandt (cross-over here between folk and country), and a little by the likes of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, Scott H. Biram, Bob Wayne, etc.

Definitely want to expand the range I listen to at some stage.

Bluegrass requires incredible skill, and I totally respect musicians who do it, but no, I don't generally like it.

Hip-hop/Rap - I've been listening to a bunch of hip-hop lately and generally enjoy anything from the old school stuff (Boogie Down Productions, N.W.A.) to some newer shit (Kendrick Lamar, A$ap Rocky). I really enjoy stuff with somewhat witty lyrics like Tyler, the Creator and Childish Gambino. Also, been liking what I'm hearing of the "trap rap" or whatever lately.

Post-rock - God is an Astronaut and Mogwai in particular lately.

Pop - I have a soft spot for really upbeat shitty pop music. I usually stop what I'm doing at work and will listen when stuff like "Slow Down" by Selena Gomez and "Sweet Nothing" by Calvin Harris come on the radio at work. I actively listen to shit like Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Lorde too.

Electronic - I used to be obsessed with electronic music. Big beat like The Prodigy and Crystal Method. Trance of any kind like Infected Mushroom, ATB. Eurodance like Basshunter and Darude. I was big on dubstep when it was first gaining popularity.

Arabic/Middle Eastern music - I've always been big on anything Middle Eastern sounding. My roommates and I used to smoke hookahs for hours on end playing the "Middle Eastern" tag radio station on last.fm. I fucking loved Karl Sanders albums.

Classical - I always have the "classics" from a lot of classical composers in my iTunes library. Also, I really enjoy Vitamin String Quartet who do classical covers of contemporary music. Check (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a9CaThAzlE) it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I48Pwwc2VAo) out (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYrMVcMMGAU).

Humppa - Weird Finnish polka type shit. The only band I know is Elakelaiset who, continuing with the covers thing, do humppa covers of popular songs. I fucking love this weird shit. Check (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ottk2kY1_cs) it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRZlXvjbH5k) out (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhtszrTRbAo). The best part of seeing Korpiklaani on their last tour was they played Elakelaiset over the speakers after Korpiklaani finished.

Aggrotech - Basically a mixture of club music, harsh vocals and horror movie soundtracks. I absolutely love it. Check (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJ32FELGp9s) it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtwgAhZjBHU) out (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XNm6u8oUjw).

Country you'll either dig or your won't. Blues though, it depends what you want from it. Could be anything from an old black guy on an acoustic guitar in the 1930s to seriously heavy riff based stuff.

Recently a lot of avant-garde jazz and ambient, droning stuff in general (The Necks, Bohren & Der Club of Gore, Brian Eno, etc.), modern classical (Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Dawn of Midi), and also tons of slowcore, indie pop, and singer-songwriters but I think that still falls under the massive umbrella of 'rock.' As far as hip-hop, I mainly listen to older stuff (see Sep's thread) and for electronica, some synth-pop and, uh, 'Kid A.'

I still haven't really gotten into country - I'm sure I will at some point, because I get into everything at some point - but good places to start would probably be Wilco, Townes Van Zandt, and maybe some Magnolia Electric Co.

...but seriously, this is a great thread idea. I like a huge range of music, depending on my mood. Everything from Enya to Entombed, classical to Cobalt, hip-hop to High on Fire, it's almost all fair game. I'm not a big country fan, although some of the stuff you mentioned in the country clarification post is decent. Johnny Cash was the man. I don't get into swing that much, but Diablo Swing Orchestra is THE SHIT. I don't care for K-pop or J-pop that much, and most of the stuff on the radio bores me (notwithstanding Lady Gaga and a few other exceptions as noted above). My wife listens to reggae more than I do, but I can take it in small doses. Bob Marley was the man. I definitely don't go for polka all that much.

My continuum of preferences probably goes something like this:

All things metal / post-metal / post-rock
Electronica
Interesting indie rock (whatever the hell that means - I know it when I hear it)
Selected rap / hip-hop / funk / soul
Industrial
All forms of punk
Alternative / progressive
Classic rock
Grunge
Classical
Jazz
Blues
Selected pop bullshit that doesn't suck
Reggae
Disco
Country (except Johnny Cash, Wille Nelson and Waylon Jennings)
Latin (except Shakira videos with the sound turned off)
Polka
Hair metal
Justin Bieber / Jonas Brothers / Nickelback

I listen to 1-3 constantly, 4-8 somewhat regularly, 9-13 occasionally, 14-17 almost never, and 18-20 I avoid like the fucking plague.

He Tweeted me back and told me Hound Dog Taylor, Elmore James, Skip James, Junior Kimbrough, Koko Taylor, Big Mama Thornton, Charlie Patton, John Lee Hooker. Then sent another Tweet that said Buddy Guy & Junior Wells Hoodoo Man Blues is fire.

If they are good enough for Neil then it's good enough fore to try. I've liked some stuff I've heard from Skip James but I haven't got to make much of a dent yet.

Can't recommend Elmore James enough. Also Sonny Boy Williamson, Lightnin' Hopkins and Freddie King.

And of course Muddy Waters, Albert King, Howlin' Wolf and Robert Johnson go without saying.

All of that is just one avenue of blues though (well, two if you want to separate Detroit and Chicago).

I've been really digging the new John Mayer stuff.

This. It's a really damn good album.

No, it's because this is about music, not paedophilia ;)

I like some funk too, like Prince. I have Sign O The Times & The Rainbow Children somewhere and I love The Gold Experience.

Not quite as good, but also check out the album 'Brothers In Arms' by Temple of Soul. It's Stevens on bass, Vernon Black on guitar, Michael Walden on drums, and Clarence Clemons from The E Street Band on sax.

Stevens also played with Stevie Salas, who is a god, if a bit of a lazy god.

I would definitely consider most of Bruce's stuff rock, Elvis Costello no, but Bruce yes. I personally really dig Darkness as well, Badlands rocks :rocker:.

I fucking love DAC but will never be able to see him live again. I have 33 of his albums and there is a good amount of music among them for him to play in the 90 minutes he normally plays. He literally chose to play the worst selection of songs and then covered Kid Rock. The only good song he did was a cover of The Midnight Rider. I heard it's a hit or miss with him, but I don't need to spend $25 again for a chance to get a decent show.

Damn that is depressing.

Although to be fair my favorite DAC songs are off of 18 X Rated Hits and I'm pretty sure none of those will fly anymore :lol:

I think he plays like two songs from that album once in a while. Cum Stains on the Pillow and that other one about questioning having relations with a man who isn't white. I really hate that record for being so racist.

As racist as that song is, it's predominately black musicians playing on it, which makes it even more strange.

I hate that song a lot actually, but I can see that being a real hit in the Deep South.

I guess the only music I listen to that ain't rock or metal is hip-hop and jazz. Some of my music classes have introduced me to some badass 20th century music though. Stravinsky's The Rite Of Spring is brutal.

My favorite song by Bruce has to be either Because The Night or Land Of Hope And Dreams, but my favorite Bruce album is Born In The U.S.A. I know it's his most popular but I love every song off that record.

Born In The USA, the album. Happy music with dark lyrics, yes, yes...

@ Ravenheart, I got high hopes ;)

I'm a big fan of many genre's of music, and generally have the opinion that good music is better than any one specific genre. In the last year, classical has been one of my favorite's and these albums regularly receive airtime on my iPhone depending on my mood :
