I have never thought I was missing out on anything. I go through phases where I think "man, no good music is coming out" but never is it the case where I think too much is coming out.

Don't you think if really good music was emerging, between MB, magazines and word of mouth you'd hear about one?

I don't know, those three things have been carrying for three years now.

I listen to most genres...I avoid a few subgenres though. I personally think that people focus to much on genres though. If its good, I'll listen to it.

While I mianly listen to the Metalcore/Screamo/Hardcore/Post Hardcore/Metal genres, I have a wide range of music.

From soft/accoustic stuff like The almost, Circa Survive, Copeland, to more hardcore/metalcore oriented stuff like August Burns Red, Underoath, Destroy The Runner, to just metal stuff like Darkest Hour or All That Remains.

And I do listen to one rap group, and only one, and that group be Hollywood Undead.

That's where your wrong there buddy.

For one, Yes, Underoath is one of the most popular bands on myspace but Ive listened to them from the beginning so I don't need that crap. I like their old stuff and new stuff.

Bands like Destroy the Runner and Darkest Hour, not that big on the internet.

And why should it ****ing matter on how popular they are on the internet? If i like the music, I'll listen to it.


Oh and if you ask me, Acoustic to metal is a pretty decent range.

Not really when you consider that acoustic is a instrumentation selection not a writing approach. By the way those bands are pretty popular on the internet.

Underoath, yes

Darkest Hour, Destroy the Runner, not nearly as much as bands like UO.

Copeland not too popular either, neither is Circa Survive, once again though, I don't see why it matters how popular they are.

I disagree with Urbam, I think most genres have a lot of worthwhile stuff. But I wouldn't get hooked on just one genre till I get sick of it... Spredding it out is a good thing, you can still have your favorite kinds of music. But experimenting and exploring new stuff is never band.

Though for me, finding new stuff nowadays requires me to listen to a lot of music outside of rock/pop, since I have heard just about everything in rock and pop music.

I've been thinking about something similar myself. I wouldn't say that I listen to more music than the average person (whatever that might be) but I sometimes wonder if I'm concentrating enough on the bands I really love. Most of my friends will be able to list a million facts about their favourite bands and I generally can't. I know about the songs and albums that I like and very little about the bands themselves (trivial things like band members, band history, that sort of thing). I'm happy this way but I sometimes wonder if I'm missing out on the other side of music.

I know this isn't the same as the thing being discussed in the original post but I didn't think it was worth making a new thread about when this is close enough.

I think my attitude to music is very healthy. I listen to a wide range of music, and the bands that I'm into; I'm passionate and knowledgeable about.

The problem is; that I listen to so many different genres, I sometimes feel like i'm missing out on so many bands because I'm not dedicated to one genre (or a localised genre even!), does anyone else find this a problem?
Yep. Another thing is that i listen to so many new bands each day, i almost forget to listen to the bands i already know of and like.
