A little traditional metal, a little thrash, a little hair, a little song, a little dance, the Batman's head upon a lance...

Traditional, thrash and doom got my votes. However, stoner rock is currently my flavor of the month.

Endless sub-genres have ruined music creativity and forced everyone to be pigeonholed into tiny marketing segments. No thanks.

I like bands that don't fit neatly into any genres.

What he said. I stopped giving a f### about "genres" a long time ago. For me, if it's a good band, it's a good band.

I do. Makes things easy to identify and possibly avoid. Kinda like stereotyping/labeling people, which I do as well. I probably wouldn't talk to 90% of this board in real life if I saw you.

Hard Rock/AOR, as if there was any doubt. The rest in order:

Glam Metal (I usually group many of these bands with the above)
Gothic Metal (I don't count symphonic bands, gothic metal is closer to doom)
Traditional Heavy Metal
Euro-Power Metal (though my love of this one has waned)
Power Metal
Progressive Metal
Thrash Metal
Symphonic Metal (used to be with Euro-power but it has also waned)
Doom Metal
Death Metal
Black Metal
Grindcore
Alternative Metal
Nu Metal (unlike metalcore, these band at least have indiviuality)
Metalcore

I'm with ya! My tastes are all over the map too! That's why I like talking about all these 'genres' and 'sub-genres', because I learn more about music that way - and I LOVE music! For me it doesn't destroy the music ... all the sub-genre-ing I mean. To me the genres are all like flavors of ice cream! I don't like each and every flavor, but I do like mixing them all up in a giant sunday!!!

Besides it's all in fun. I'm not a genre-nazi. I just like talking music. If you have no genres, you have no points of reference on a map! You can't talk about where you're going without understanding a map!

I mean ... when was the last time you went into an ice cream store and the person working the counter said ... 'what kind o ice cream do you want?' ... and you said "I DO NOT BELIEVE IN ICE CREAM GENRE DESCRIPTIONS! I believe that this is ruining the market for ice cream!" The person working there would not even know what to get for you! I guess you'd get a mish-mash of every single thing they have! ... and hells bells - if that's what you want with your music ... I guess that's okay. But for me - I like to KNOW what I'm getting into when I buy an album!!!!

I voted for traditional metal, thrash metal, and the one you forgot (speed metal in my case). I don't know if I had the options of voting for four genres, but I also really like most old-school death metal. I suppose power metal would have been an option for me as well, depending on what you consider power metal.

I made sure when listing my favorite genres that I broke that up into power metal and Euro-power metal because they are two different metal styles.

I KNEW I was forgetting a genre! Good call on Speed Metal! That would be tied with Thrash for me.
