Lol well...I have a completely different perspective on music then you guys... I can be labeled as punk i suppose. i listen to bands such as Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, Avenged SevenFold, and NickelBack.
Im actually very young and i think that age has a lot to do with music as well... im gonna assume that the above posters are at least 15-18 and are used to a completely different form of music. As for myself, I'm 12.
I heard the music that i listen to mainly from my friends. Not at all media based (but of course im sure my friends found their music from the media although).
