I just got the idea in the death metal thread. How did your choice of music change as years passed? It's kinda amusing to look back on it.

Before I started drums, I was into all sorts of random music. Then, I started drums and my teacher introduced me to jazz and funk playing, so he suggested me some basic jazz albums like Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue". Then it just went on from there.

Well, I first started realizing what I liked back when American Idiot came out in 04. I got hooked on Green Day for a while, then I moved into progressive metal I think with bands like Protest the Hero and stuff. Next I think was a System of a Down phase. Then I got into other metal again and eventually found hardcore. Went to a show and was instantly hooked. Now I've thrown grindcore into the mix. I still like all the stuff I mentioned above other than Green Day

1st grade-3rd grade I was really into pop music, like Brittney Spears, Backstreet Boys, etc. 4th-mid 6th grade I was really into rap music (I was obsessed with Eminem lol). Then mid 6th-8th grade I mainly listened to alternative, pop-punk, and emo. Then in the middle of 8th grade I started listening to more kinds of rock (punk, hardcore, hard rock, psychedelic, gothic, etc.), and some metal. Now I listen to most kinds of metal and rock, except hair metal.

So, when you took on drum lessons, what did you expect? Did you want to learn a certain style before being introduced to funk and jazz or did you just wanna learn to play anything?

I'll quote myself to answer my thread:

I was born and raised with classical rock such as Beatles, Cream, Kinks, Monkees, Animals, what my dad rocks out to. I listened to rock bands like Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Zeppelin, The Who and such when I was around 10-13, even Metallica and heavier stuff like Slipknot, Sepultura, even... Korn... yuck. I later got into punk for a short while, then came the ska I still enjoy (not too many bands though), and now I'm into a bit of rock, some ska and lots of funk and jazz.

I dont think I really had a specific genre I wanted to study. I just wanted to learn drums. I started with basic rock beats, and that kind of stuff. It was cool, but it wasn't nearly as fun as when I first was learning jazz.

Yea, rock beats are the obvious way to start, easy, but way less entertaining than jazz. There's virtualy nothing that can't be incorporated in a jazz beat. One of the drummers I know even tried using a double pedal when we jammed once. He used it in just the right places and the session turned out very fun, in an unusual way.

i started out pretty much listening to whatever was on the top 40 radio station. then i switched over to the strictly rock station, where i first heard killswitch engage. i bought their album, and completely hated the screaming. after a while, i learned to like it, and fell in love with pretty much any metalcore band i heard. then i started listening to the local hardcore bands. somehow that progressed to death metal, and grindcore. now i pretty much listen to all of the above except for anything on the radiol.

When I was really little, I was totally into all the boy bands and Britney Spears and shit. It was totally hot.

Later on, I was totally into Avril Lavigne. I thought she was all bad-ass.

Realized Avril Lavigne was not badass. Started listening to Good Charlotte.

Started listening to System of a Down.

Found Grunge.

Found Pantera.

Arch Enemy, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, Slipknot.

Children of Bodom, Strapping Young Lad.

Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Amon Amarth, Cephalic Carnage, Nile, Cannibal Corpse.

I progressed pretty fast since I had old brothers and napster..

Age 5-7 All over the place, Aerosmith, Green Day, and Biggy were heavy in my playlist.

Age 7-9 Discovered ''Punk'' on napster, began liking Pennywise, Rancid, Afi, Bad Religion, NOFX, Blink 182, The Misfits, The Clash, others. Also listened to stuff my brothers liked, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ozzy, Rob Zombie, Alien Ant Farm, some other stuff. This age is when I really started discovering/liking decent music.

Age 9-11, Still liked mostly Punk, I bought System of a Down's album Toxicity, fell in love with it. Also bought Sum 41's All Killer No Filler, loved this as well. I later bought Avenged Sevenfold's Waking the Fallen, thought it was one of the illest CDs ever. Too bad they are fags now, and have the gayest fanbase ever. (if Pinkeh sees this she can vouch for this. haha)

11-13. Huge time for me discovering music. Began listening to underground rap, Atmosphere, MF Doom, Aesop Rock, Common, etc. I also liked more mainstream stuff like Wu Tang. I still listened to mostly punk. My brother began listening to metal, I began liking some of that as well. I discovered ska, made me wish I never stopped playing the trumpet. I first listened to The Fall of Troy during this time. <33

14-15. Where I'm at now. I listen to a lot of Indie/Math Rock/Experimental/Hardcore stuff. Still listen to some underground Hip Hop sometimes, some metal, etc. Pretty wide range of music taste..

11 and under-
i listened to lots of different stuff but a lot of classic rock because thats what my dad was always playing. i listened to rap occasionally.

11-13
pop punk like green day, blink 182. i also listened to simple plan for part of that time alot.

13-14
punk. real punk. like some local bands, black flag, minor threat, fear, X, the germs, circle jerks.

14-15
for awhile when i was 14 i was in a hip hop stage and i listened to loads of hip hop but that didn't last that long. then a little after freshman year started i started listening to a lot of screamo-ish bands. and a lot of indie. then around the time i turned 15 i started listening to grindcore, death, and hardcore.

right now i'm going to be 16 in like 3 months and i listen to almost anything. including...

hardcore
a little screamo
death metal
indie
acoustic
soft rock
hip hop
and just whatever sounds good.

Alright this is sorta gay.
I got into underoath a while back.
Then I was limewiring them and found some of their old stuff and it thats what got me into more metal.
then metal eventually leads to pretty much death metal/grindcore/etc.

I havent really stopped listening to anything I used to per say, not entire genres at least, maybe specific bands. My taste just broadened, I started listening to more and different genres and eventually I got to where I am now, where I listen to a couple funk bands, some jazz, some delta blues, lots of hip hop, lots of psychedelic and classic rock, bad brains and some indie/brit pop stuff and thats pretty much it. Some prog too, early ELP, King Crimson whatever.

After I started to take notice of music it went:

Rock Variants and Alternate Electronica. Like Powderfinger, Living End, Silverchair, Enigma, RHCP, Placebo.

Then to Heavier Rock and other things. P.O.D, Rammstein, 36 Crazyfists and A Perfect Circle. As well as Regurgitator and Propellerheads and Prodigy.

Then using the In Flames discography backwards as a ramp from nu-metal to melodic metal, listening to Dark Tranquility and Arch Enemy and Soilworks old stuff. I liked the powerful sound but musical intelligence that they seemed to have. As well as discovering Mogwai (without being aware of post rock) and also Karnivool and that area of Australian hard rock (which seems to be characteristically more melodic).

Then found Insomnium as my favourite metal band, and that path stopped there after I just couldn't stand metal vocals anymore. They really started irritating me. Mr.Bungle was next, and after that I pretty much threw the idea of sticking to certain genres out the window. Although my favourite area of music is post-rock by FAR, as it had the epic power that I liked about metal, but mainly vocal-less and written with a lot more creativity.

When I first heard music I thought it was always pretty good.

I started listening to Eminem and liked it because of the singing about baddness in the world and swearing. But later I listened to the words and it felt deep to me. Then I started really getting into the beats and stuff and started on pop music because it was easy available to me.
When I actually got into some decent music it was because I was on stickdeath and there was the best song I had ever heard playing it was down with the sickness-disturbed. I then went out and bought down with the sickness album and it was soo soo good I still listen to it today. I got into really heavy metal as a 12 year old kid and loved it. After a while I got into a bit of punk and from there went to emo I listened to emo mixed in with metal for quite a long time till at least begginning of this year but now I hate most emo shit and like heavy stuff going back to my roots in which I came from. Also there is an ocasional punk song that would stand out to me, all that new age shit is horrible but I am talking about The ramones and Bad Religion.

I wasn't much into music, asides from The Offspring and Linkin Park untill year 8-9. I got early rock/Heavy Metal. Some Alt Rock and hardcore/metal core. But the 'core's died down fast and I find it quite the lulz now.

Then Heavy Metal, Psychedelic

Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Progressive Rock/Metal, Psychedelic, Jazz and Blues. Aswell as Rock (theres some other random metal I like but I can't be bothered listing, and you look like tools naming every strand of genre in the same type of music). Are now my thing.

But Prog is now my thing.
