While I am happy with just about anything (I can easily go from classical to jazz to pop to the brutalest of death metals without batting an eye), my favorite genre is melodic hard rock/metal. Favorite bands are Godsmack, Volbeat, Metallica, Amon Amarth and on and on and on haha.

My favorite is rock. More specifically Christian rock, like Red, Skillet, Thousand Foot Krutch, etc.

Glazunov? I personally don't find his music overly attractive other than the violin concerto and a few random works...he seems to overdo with the brilliante a bit...

but to each his own!

I guess I could fit within the broad genre of classical (I'm not a big fan of the Baroque-Classical era), and am most in-tune with time between the late years of Chopin and the death of Shostakovich. However, I do like music from other, branching periods and adverse styles (insert Messiaen's early work), even some jazz from the time popular and art music intersected in the mid-20s-early-30s (on the classical side where Ravel created a jazz-impressionist hybrid). I have a fairly large collection of music from many periods, composers, and forms, ranging in the 170ish GB range.

I don't think I have a favorite genre. I just love music. All music! Well, besides Opera, Gospel, and R&B, haha.

I will say this, though... I'm VERY happy to see that Rap and Hip Hop are separate on the poll. I think there is a big difference between the two that a lot of people completely overlook, or just don't understand.

I'm still confused by this. How would you explain it?

I feel like I've heard both that they're two different kinds of music, or that "rap" is a music genre whereas "hip-hop" is a culture that encompasses rap music. Either way, there are a few artists I would characterize as only one or the other, but otherwise I can't tell the difference. Is there supposed to be a lot of overlap?

^ I guess a lot of peoples interpretations of it are different. Here's my short answer...

To me, rap is a lot more negative, aggressive, and hard. Rap tends to focus on money, demoralizing girls, drugs, cars, jewelry, violence, etc...
I also think that rap is very repetitive, and most of it is done over a purely computer generated beat, and the hooks or chorus' are usually terrible. I think most rap beats tend to be fairly simple, with a lot more (fake) bass.

Hip Hop on the other hand, to me, is more upbeat and positive. To me hip hop focuses more on the future, and being positive about life, and making changes for the better. A lot of hip hop also focuses on relationships, friendships, family, equality, and to be proud and thankful for what you have and to do the best with what you have. It's more about life experiences and enjoying the good, and how to overcome the bad. I think hip hop is a lot more meaningful than rap.
I also think that hip hop beats are usually more complicated and substantial than rap beats. A lot of hip hop emcees tend to have real instruments in their songs too, whether it be drums, horns, turntable scratching, etc...

Let me know if you'd like any examples. I could give you some YouTube links to some great hip hop songs, and some not so great rap songs that will definitely show you the difference, haha. I used to be a huge hip hop head (still "one" of my favorite genres), and have a huge arsenal of goodies!

But like I said, everyone's definition may be different.
