    I reluctantly voted Disco, but I really like the sub-genres of House, Freestyle and some Trance. Roughly, dance music from 1978 to 1988. I worked as a DJ from 1980 to 1986 and that stuff brings back good memories for me, but its not for everyone (especially you white guys that can't dance).

    I have always thought good music was good music despite the genre. But if I had to pick an order of these, it would be this:

    British Invasion
    New Wave
    RB & Soul
    Punk
    Southern Rock
    Headbangers
    Corporate Rock
    Philly Soul
    Funk
    Disco

    My vote is "Other"

    Naming my genre is impossible, honestly, but would include:

    -Pink Floyd (70's Space Prog)
    -Radiohead (90's Techno-Prog)
    -Black Mountain (00's Sabbath-esque Prog)
    -Iron and Wine (Folk w/ some Hints of Prog)
    -Muse (90's/00's Queen Epicrock)
    -Mars Volta (Insanity Set to Music)
    -Metallica (Standard Issue Thrash Metal)
    -Alice in Chains (Emo Rock on Heroin)
    -moe. (Jammy Jam Jam)
    -Greatful Dead (Very Traditional Folk Rock Turned Space Jam)

    I like Epic Gilmourian Guitar Solos, Spacey Mellow Atmoshperic Keyboards (Farsifa/Hammond), Multiple Vocalists if possible, strong Riffs-based, Power Chordy, Explorative, Psychodellic/Proggy, grungy, shoegazy, oft-times folky acoustic, sometimes bombastic, rock music.

    When I like other songs, the style often falls into the above. For example, I love Phil Collins songs "In the Air Tonight" and "I Don't Care Anymore", both keyboard driven emofests with some epic vocal moments. Most other Genesis/Phil Collins pop stuff....no thanks.

    I like alot of old school metal, Megadeth, Anthrax, Pantera, Maiden, Motorhead, etc. But not as much as I used to. Only Metallica still gets regular rotation.

    I like alot of bad 80's Synth Pop, mostly the good chorus, good keys riffy Floydian Stuff.

    I like Flogging Molly, Irish Folk Punk.....with a former Big Hair Metal vocalist. And the Offspring.

    But give me a mellow-to-rocking-to-mellow 20 min song, with a strong space-keyboard vibe, a Floydian Guitar Sol or two, a power-chord midbreak rifffest, two singers going back and forth and harmonizing the epic chorus, and I'll probably like it to some degree.

    Signature Songs: Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Time, Comfortably Numb & The Entire Live at Pompeii Album (Floyd), Set Us Free & Tyrants & Sadie(Black Mountain), The Sea & the Rythm (Iron & Wine), Nude & Sail To the Moon & Street Spirit (Radiohead).

    You take issue with the fact that AiC was writing sludgy Sabbathy tunes primarily about the personal pain and suffering of Staley as he proceeded through the stages of addiction into his sad, inevitable, death?

    Is it the "Emo" thats bugging you? Substitute whatever term you prefer, AiC was a window into a deep pain, with some great riffs as the theme music, as we all collectively watched Staley kill himself.
