Default Non-metal fan 40k players?

I was listening to Sneaky Sound System just then whilst posting on Tau Online, when it occured to me just how many non metal fans there would be on this entire lovingly massive community.


Amazingly enough, all the asians (you know...all.....4 that we have), Yriel is into Hip Hop, whilst Mace and I are both into Alternative and rarely listen to any metal. (He listens to Rammstein, I listen to Rammstein, Lordi and Blind Guardian).


So just how many non metal fans are there? There must be more than us. I know there's probably a lot of punk and goth fans here. But does Metal compare as a dominant genre relatively?

To illustrate what I mean, yes I listen to like three metal bands, but that's around the amount I listen to for Hip Hop, Jazz, Electro, Ska and most genres as well. There's very few genres I actually avoid like the plague.


So I'm wondering, what's the case for the punk and the goth fans? Is Metal like your equal first, or one of your more listened to genres?

I listen to a lot more "goth" than I do metal, I think, its definately my favourite, and while I do listen to metal, I also listen to more mainstream style pop if I like a particular song(Pink, a few songs, the Kooks/F.O.B/Razorlight etc).

I don't listen to Hip Hop, as such, as I can't stand it, but I think Yriel, or mace made an interesting topic about modern Hip Hop, leading me to believe there might be some I like.

Zoso that post doesn't make sense...



Anyway, I listen to just about everything. Including Metal, Hip-hop, Trance, Alternative, Rock, Classic Rock... you name a genre and I probably have at least a couple songs from it.

I'm pretty rock-heavy, but I like songs that I can understand the words to...and I don't mind hip-hop/rap itself, but the subject matter just doesn't make it worth my time.

I'm not a metal fan.

I simply can't stand the lack of melody in most metal bands.

I listen to all the music I like but I'm not into a particular style.

I recall that Phage listens to hip-hop, rap and the like.

Are you saying that as a reason why you don't like metal? If so then you also haven't heard much 'real' metal.

I really only listen to metal, classic rock and some alternative. Although I am starting to like classical music more and more.
