I don't like rap in general, but some forms of it are good. I like that Reanimation CD by Linkin Park and it has rap on it. Rap is or should be poetry set to beats. I never listen to gangsta' rap and I don't enjoy popular rap either. Underground hip-hop is good though.

Very well put, Bill. I absolutely abhor popular rap, I'm underground all the way. And groups/individuals that change their style just to get paid piss me off the most. I like rap that's about something, that tells a story. And I also agree to the "poetry set to beats" part, as a matter of fact I think in one forum or another I said almost the same thing. It's not like they're trying to be fake musicians, that's just the way they want their music to sound. Another good song I suggest is "Time", by Eightball from his album "Lost". Very good storytelling. He also states several times on the album that he's a poet....

I like many groups from each of these areas. I like some rap, classical, alot of jazz, and alot of rock. I hate alternative and country. So I piicked the other category. I just can't say any of the above is my absolute favorite.

Indie, Indie-rock and rock 'n' roll. You should really add indie to the list.

I am a Power Metalhead. I like bands such as Kamelot, Blind Guardian, Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Manowar, Hammerfall, and Edguy. I will stop there though I could go on and on. I also like some rock such as Nickelback and System of a Down. Just so everyone knows, rock and metal are not synonymous, in fact, they rarely ever play metal on the radio, it is mostly just rock bands calling themselves metal bands. I also like traditional metal, and some speed metal.

I dislike rap, pop, and country. Along with nu-metal (not metal at all but rock) bands such as Korn, Slipknot, and Limp Bizkit.

My favorite genre would most likely be Rock, Classical, and Jazz isn't too bad either.

Generally, I hate rap and country, despite a few exceptions.
