Korn, Disturbed, etc. Basically all of the rock/metal stuff they play on local radio is what I'd be listening to, still.

I was listening to metal 13 years before I ever first got on to the internet, so Metal.

Honestly, a decent amount of the same stuff I listen to now. I'm sure the musical evolution wouldn't have been as fast or as big, but I got into metal on my own, and my biggest step into the primary subgenres I listen to now came through actual friends, not the internet. When I was just starting to get into lesser-known bands (Stratovarius, Edguy, etc), I began hanging around this local record shop with some older friends, who ended up turning me on to a lot of other bands, and it just grew from there.

Well, I've always loved music so I probably would have ended up going to our local Vinyl Revolution. The owner used to run the Record Vault in SF and was deep within the scene, and has thousands of metal records, tapes and other gems that he's been showing me and my friends for years. There are other record stores near the area too that stock all tons of obscure metal. So I'd listen to the exact same stuff, just at a slower rate since I'd have to buy it all. A lot of really odd stuff I like now I'd probably acquire via tape trading which I'm sure I'd be into in this hypothetical pre-internet world. So, no difference. Just find bands more slowly.

This.
For the most part I got most of my stuff from my own listening or from my friends. Granted there are a few bands I wouldn't know about if it wasn't for the internet webz, but for the most part. I AM MY OWN PERSON

But your friends could have found out about those bands from the internet.

I don't think my tastes would be that much different, but I don't think I would know as many underground bands. It'd just take a lot more time for me to discover and get a hold of some stuff. I really think people would be lost without the ability to download everything though. Of course, there was tape trading and everything, but now it seems like a lot of people feel entitled to be able to have music in seconds, instead of a couple decades ago where you had to wait and actually spend your money when an album came out.
