    Your favourite music genre?

    What are your favourite music genres? I would always appreciate a good example of the genre with a video or something similar

    Mine is folk-metal and the different sub-genres of it (Viking-metal, pagan-metal). I really like this kind of music because it isn't just the same kind of instruments which every popular metal bands have. I also really like the folk-lore in some of the lyrics :D

    Some examples:

    Rock and metal, without a shadow of a doubt! I love most music, but these are my absolute favourites. There is such variety!

    My favorite genre would be probably classic metal. My favorite band is Iron Maiden, my handle is one of their songs.

    If you like viking/pagan metal you should check out Tyr and Turisas if you already haven't.

    I go back and forth between a lot of styles. Generally though, it's either techno (Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Buuren), hard rock (Disturbed, Metallica, etc), and symphony metal (Withim Temptation).

    My current favorite song is by Within Temptation (whose last album is phenomenal!):

    This is one of my other favorites by them:

    I enjoy:
    • classical music (Mozart, Beethoven, etc.)
    • some "oldies" rock & roll (the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Three Dog Night, etc.)
    • some folk music (Peter, Paul & Mary, John Denver (well, I classify him as "folk"; YMMV))
    • some pop music (it varies on my mood as to whom)
    • some New Age music (Celtic Woman (although I may be putting them in the wrong category; my leg's being used as a pillow right now, so I can't get up and check), and I-can't-think-of-anybody-else-at-the-moment)
    • and movie soundtracks (John Williams is one of my personal music gods)

    ....I have rather eclectic taste in music.
