All sorts!! It really depends on my frame of mind but usually something uplifting and upbeat!
I’m into all sorts but because anger plays a big role in my life I do love some hard thrashing metal to listen to soothe the anger because the music screams it out for you. Why do you think most metal heads are so chill but deep down know how to fuck shit up if need be. Lol
Music with a message of nearly any genre. I like songs/artists that have a purpose.
Mexican corridos. I get that for non Spanish speakers it sounds all happy-go-lucky and festive but if you listen to the lyrics, they get into some real gangsta shit. Rap and hip hop don’t even come close... in rap they just say things like “I’m going to shoot you”, Mexican corridos go into detail lol they say things like “ima chop off your head, put your body in an acid tub, and bury you in a hole” type of shit. But no seriously, Mexican corridos is like a mash up of rap and country and action movies. Most songs tell a story like country music, but they’re violent like rap (even more so), and it feels like you’re watching an action movie by how they describe the events.
Rock spanning from the mid 60s to the late 70s, or thereabouts; I'm very into the psychedelic and prog stuff. And then grunge of course, love that too. But I'll listen to most of rock's subgenres, really, it's just the ones I named are the ones I return to the most.
All sorts. I like classical and choral, rock, pop, metal, reggae, country (even the stuff with gratuitous yodelling), rap, R&B old and new, rock and roll, industrial, dance music, goth, punk, swing, jazz, big band, soca, indie, disco... the list goes on and on. I cannot get on with grindcore though, or Nu metal. It just pisses me off.
I listen to and play a LOT of trad music. Quebecois (French Canadian), Swedish, Cape Breton, New England, Old-Time, Irish, Scottish, English, etc. I also love listening to and learning old folk songs from all over the world (Appalachian, sacred harp, UK, Georgian, French, African, etc). It's what I grew up listening and dancing to and it's always been important to me! I like a lot of different things, though I don’t really like country music most of the time. I listen to some alternative, pop, indie, and rap mainly. A few older artists as well. I love Fall Out Boy, MGK, BVB, Three Days Grace, Queen, and Juice WRLD. I’m not sure how much I differ from most males in general but my male friends and I have quite a bit of overlap in our music.
My musical tastes are pretty eclectic and I listen to a variety of genres, but my preferences tend to lean toward rock/alternative for the most part. A large chunk of my playlists/personalized stations is emo music and I like quite a bit of k-pop as well.
