I've been in "the zine scene" for a long time, and that often involves people sending you underground music to review through the postal mail.  So I've gotten and listened to my share of punk, death metal and all kinds of music I'm not normally into.  It's sort of a courtesy or obligation in the zine community to give "feedback" on things sent to you for review.  So I know all about the guttural, grinding, churning of the genre, even at my age.

I listen to a whole range of genres, spanning decades, but I'd say it's mostly in the larger array of "pop" genres, whether mainstream or obscure.  I'm more into the song itself than the genre, but I like dark, melodic rock/pop.  Some of the bands whose songs I've liked are Catherine Wheel, Joy Division, The Black-Eyed Susans,  and The Jam.  I like irony and cryptic allusion in a song and video, feelings and ideas that can't quite be put into words.  Many of the songs I like have non-verbal, subtle, and very personal meanings for me, on top of the beat, melody, story, etc.

Hoping not to sound like "the patronizing old person", I've never been into music genre tribalism, though I don't begrudge it to people in their teens and early 20's.

Sometimes i like mellow pop you obviously hate like Michael Learns to Rock, and some 80s stuffs. lol

Sometimes i listen to Rammstein old albums.

I also like EBM, trance, and euro synthpop, such as x divide, vnv nation, daft punk, mind in a box, armin van buuren, stuffs like those...

and nothing new, just same songs to listen over and over.

Pretty much the same, old and old songs over and over. Maybe a few new songs here and there, but usually same ol' same ol'.
