I understand why other people like him and how important he is the wonderful Garden State but I don't listen to him much. Its not that I dislike his music, its just not my thing.
I mostly listen to blues or blues based rock. The latter can really be anything from oldies to rockabilly to classic/acid rock to the Detroit bands from the early 2000's. My favorite band is the Rolling Stones.
I was a white teenager in the suburbs in the late 80's/early 90's so obviously I have listened to every Beastie Boys album up to Hello Nasty extensively. License to Ill has to the be the dumbest thing I still occasionally listen too. Paul's Boutique is still considered a classic among most of my friends.
I was also perfect age for grunge but I never really got into that. I thought Pearl Jam kinda sucked but I did appreciate the death of glam metal. I really liked Nirvana but to me they were just a a punkish sounding band that wrote much better songs than most - almost like a self loathing Ramones.
I also tend to like traditional forms of music or modern interpretations of traditional music. I don't really own alot of bluegrass and folk type stuff but I usually like it when I hear it. Also, bands like Dropkick Murphys or the Tossers who play modern verisons of traditional Irish music.
