    I guess this would be an appropriate time to bring attention (shamelessly plug) the band in my signature, although I am quite sure everyone here will hate it.

    Hmmm... My favourite acts would have to be: The Chemical Brothers, Primal Scream, The Prodigy, Underworld, Orbital, New Order, Death in Vegas, Aphex Twin, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and The KLF, amongst others.

    I could never get into KLF much but I appreciate Discordian musicians nonetheless.

    I like the music in No More Heroes. IMHO it's one of the best soundtracks in the history of gaming.

    Here are a few samples:

    "The virgin child makes her wish without feeling anything".

    There's also Dr. Peace's awesome boss battle BGM and "draw contest finish" BGM.

    Bad Girl's boss battle theme.

    The Genki Rockets "Heavenly Star" music video in the EU and JP versions.

    The theme during the "Real Ending".

    "Heavenly Star" is a song from Lumines! That music video is the stage from the game!!!

    I know, but that game can't have that song all to itself, Davy. Besides, it was a music video formatted or something to be in Lumines. No More Heroes just happens to have it as exclusive video in the European and Japanese releases.

    Lumines II, technically. ?That game is a Dark God which long held sway over my soul; I am free from it, for now, but I fear it shall someday return to rule my heart once more.

    The Lost Odyssey OST is quite good, as far as VG music goes.

    Lumines is the greatest puzzle franchise ever. (Even if it's functionally broken.)

    As you may have noticed with my remixing style, I listen almost exclusively to instrumental classical music; Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Chopin and Mendelssohn being my favorites. I'm not very fond of classical vocal music, but there are a few exceptions such as Mozart's Der H?lle Kocht in Meinem Herzen from Die Zauberfl?te, especially the recording by Maria Callas.

    Of course, I also listen to video game soundtracks, again, preferably instrumental. Final Fantasy Piano Collections and the arranged albums are mainstays in my playlist. I throw in a dash of Mitsuda, Hamauzu and Sakuraba and it's all good. As above, I'm very picky with the vocal tracks, Yoko Kanno's hauntingly beautiful Intro Theme from Ragnar?k Online II among the priveleged few to be on my list. I've always had a thing for her nonsense songs with beautiful melodic lines.

    As for "modern" songs, I try to try a bit of everything and am, for the most part, tolerant. I must state, though, that I abhor rap "music," or as I call it, "fitting as many words as you can in a single melodic line that is comprised of at most three distinguishable notes." Rock is okay. I just turn the music down a bit so that my cerumen won't come jumping out of my auditory canals. laugh.gif

    Well SOAD (system of a down for those not in the loop) has been officially on hiatus for sometime now. Serj made a solo album called Empty Walls like back at the end of '07. Now Daron has made an album, they both kept in touch with the drummer from SOAD (or he kept in touch with both of them) Anyway I really suggest giving Scars on Broadway a listen. It's Daron's band and has much more of that old system feel...at least to me it does.

    You can find the music video to "They Say" by Scars on Broadway on youtube. Daron is looking really freaking crazy I couldnt even recognize him. I kept saying that looks like the drummer from system and my friend told me it was daron's band. So yeah. Listen. Rock out.

    For those who don't know (or care tounge2.gif ), Metallica releases their new album later today. I'm feeling pretty stoked about it. They are back with producer Rick Reuben, their producer for their first four albums. And that is the point right there, Metallica is back! Death Magnetic sounds like a good mix of Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, And Justice for All, with some overtones of Kill 'em All. Finally, they have made up for St. Anger. laugh.gif

    i usually listen to talk radio (NPR and loveline), but if i do listen to music, it's mostly death metal (especially slam metal like devourment, guttural secrete, disconformity, etc), pop punk, and top 40 (i love me some fergie, e-40, 50 cent, etc). from about 1989-2002 or so my entire life revolved around the hardcore scene so i still bust that stuff out from time to time but mostly that genre has aged quite poorly.

    I'd like to make a couple of additions to this list.

    Firstly, I've been really addicted to Soulwax lately (I listened to their Any Minute Now album three times through today blush.gif) and deem them worthy of a place in my favourite music list.

    Secondly, I've acquired a fair amount of Throbbing Gristle's discography and am thoroughly enjoying it. Consider them favourited!

    For those who like techno-pop-funk, I suggest listening to some Chromeo, which I'm hooked on right now.

    Try listening to their song "Fancy Footwork" to see if it's your thing.

    Mostly swapping between a hell of a lot of power metal (namely Kamelot, Pyramaze, and Communic), and the piano orchestrated Final Fantasy albums. Can't get enough of either.

    I knew there was a reason I clicked on this thread.

    I just started listening to Beirut yesterday. This song (Elephant Gun) is awesome.

    Right now I am really into Disturbed, Linkin Park, Puddle of Mudd... and werewolf Cat Dolls and Kelly Clarkson. My music taste is VERY varied, to say the last.

    Beirut is mother truckin' top shelf, Vigi. This is my personal fav song of his.

    last.fm doesn't always give the best overview of someone's musical taste. for example: my own last.fm charts, it has most of my listening habits recorded since 2004. My taste changed a lot since 2004, but there are still artists from back then in my top artists.

    Anyway, I listen to a lot of different things. I listen to metal, electronic, videogame music, classical music, the avant-garde, and some bands/artists that are hard to put into one genre tounge2.gif

    For me, though, it does. My tastes don't really change, they more or less expand.

    If anyone finds themselves without absolutely nothing to do, so much so that even staring at the ceiling seems like a losing proposition, take a gander through my artist list.

    It ranges from Rush(progressive/progressive metal) to ABBA(pop rock/disco). I've got a little country thrown in there, plus I'll probably be adding some older hip-hop when I get the chance. As cliche as it sounds, I will listen to practically anything, except maybe some of the more hardcore metal/death metal. Scream singing has never appealed to me all that much.

    Currently blasting Before the Dawn's new album Soundscape of Silence... freaking FREAKING amazing! Just beyond awesome, album of the year without a doubt.
