    Ditto, though I can do some contemporary jazz. Modern pop for the most part is on the list for me as well. I can do some artists: Adele, Coldplay, etc but the vast majority I cannot listen to at all: Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Train, Nicki Manaj.... I could go on and on and on...

      Heavy metal (all that shredding really annoys me) and this coming from a guy who used to love it. Much like a lot of "grunge" it's just noise.

        yeah, I agree. Add both modern pop and heavy metal to my list.

              It's been said that there are only two kinds of music: good and bad. I prefer good music.

                All credit to Duke Ellington, as he said it.

                I'm with you on this. I think the proliferation of so called genres is what is even more irritating. Makes you wonder what freckle faced kid is making the decisions as to what shelf or webpage an album goes on.

                Ditto...+1 etc.

                Rap is totally lost on me. I tried listening to it for my kids sake some years ago but I kept waiting for the song to begin. I hear ripoffs of parts of great old R&R songs and then they start saying something that is angry/full of hate. Sorry but I like to enjoy my music and listening is a different type of thing with me, I guess.
                Life is analog...digital is just samples thereof.

                  Country. As in "my dog died, my car was stolen or broke down, my girlfriend left me" country. Not to be confused with Western Swing, which rocks!

                    I like most genres from when they start, as in when the originators of the genre formed it. Then I get bored with the second and third generation of "we can do that too" musicians. Even within my favorite prog rock, I loved pretty much all the early bands from 60s and 70s, but not so much the later formulaic prog bands with their "we have a mellotron and just wrote some epic songs..."
                    Regardless of genre, I don't like boring music, derivative music, me-too music. It has to make me think, hit me emotionally, or at least make me want to listen. Otherwise it's just background noise.

                        something like spyro gyra as opposed to early classic miles davis.

                      "contemporary" (in its literal meaning) jazz artists are currently playing and recording all the commonly recognized variants of jazz; bebop, post-bop, hard bop, avant-garde, free jazz, big band, Dixieland, etc. Perhaps you mean "smooth jazz", a la Kenny G.?

                        yes, I guess smooth jazz would be a better description of what I don't like

                        Bob Dylan. If he is a genre on to himself.
