I'm just about 17, and I never really thought about it, but I've never really gone too much with trends, except for a period of about a year where I (barely) listened to Slipknot, Disturbed, Trivium, ya know, that kinda stuff. But for about two years now it's been all about extreme metal.
And I'm happy about that.
