My Musical Tastes

“Good music” is relative. Plus, what sounds good instrumentally vs what sounds good lyrically is also relative. My tastes are picky and yet broad. It’s hard to describe my music tastes without being very specific and picking my top 10 favorite songs of all time or even a certain decade is flat out impossible for me. So, to try and answer the question of my musical tastes, here is a detailed lists on genres that I love to listen too, tolerate, and dislike. Keep in mind that I can find artists I like and hate in nearly each of the genres. This list is very detailed in terms of genres and sub-genres. For each genre, I included an example. Of course, with certain genres it’s hard to define so the examples may be disputed. Plus some of these artists do more than that particular genre. If I don’t include an artist as an example, that doesn’t mean I don’t like it/hate it. Any genres not listed I have never heard of or have never listened too.
