I hate, hate, hate, hate, the question "What kind of music do you like?"
That is an impossible question. Genres don't work, for within each genre are brilliant artists and people who aren't even artists, they just have a record contract. There are people who don't have a record contract. And there seems to be an expectation that one only likes a few kinds of music.
Well yeah, there are some genres that I don't appreciate the general sound of. Mainstream rap and pop. Country. Opera.
But aside from that, here's the real answer. I like music that is alive.
Balkan Beat Box.
The Sex Pistols.
Jars of Clay.
The Glitch Mob.
Motionless in White.
Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster.
Becoming The Archetype.
The Velvet Underground.
Eyedea and Abilities.
The Devil Wears Prada.
The Tallest Man on Earth.
The White Stripes.
The Rolling Stones.
We Butter The Bread With Butter.
Asking me which kind of music I like best is like asking what facet of a diamond is most beautiful.
It's a silly question.
