Anyone else limit themselves musically?

I despise all rap and all metal (except for some classic artists who people call metal when the songs really have more of a hard rock feel.) I also can't stand (pretty much any) year 2000+ music, and a good portion of late 1900's music. Really, I limit myself to branches of rock from the '60s to the '80 (and some '90s) and shun literally everything else.

Anyone else limit themselves this much?

    This. If anything, nowadays, I try to listen in particular to genres I normally dislike to find good bands within them, since I know they're out there.
    My point exactly I really like Cynic's new album and Opeth's non Death Metal album, but their Death stuff is not bad must hear Atheist's new album when it is released :)

    I, personally, refuse to listen to anything but The Jonas Brothers.

    Not consciously, but there are certain genres I'm hesitant to approach, like prog and melodeath, and even then there are some exceptions, I really like what I've heard of Procol Harum. Also, I've never heard I post-grunge band I didn't dislike.

    I've got some of the most eclectic tastes in music ever. I listen to almost literally all genres of music, including some that no longer exist and some from every corner of the globe.

    That's why I'm absolutely LOVING RB's forays into new genres.

    But I'm not going to hate on anyone for being narrow-minded about their musical choices. I don't agree with it, but it's ridiculous to expect people not to be close-minded about what kind of music they like.

    But for god's sake, don't go around telling people they're wrong or crazy or whatever because they happen to listen to something you don't like.

    Rock and roll is a BIG tent.

    I may have heard something by Chevelle at some point, but I don't think I've ever even heard of the other two, but it's not like I heard Hinder and rushed off to find out more about the genre, what albums would you recommend?

    Chevelle (This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In)
    Cold (Year of the Spider)
    Day of Fire (Cut & Move, Day of Fire)

    Post-Grunge isn't amazing but those albums are better than Hinderbacksmack Days Grace

    Send the Pain Below is Chevelle's more popular song.

    Never. I feel nothing but pity for people who limit their music listening, although that is their choice, however unfortunate it may be. I also have a really hard time believing a person could only enjoy just one or two genres; you'd have to get bored eventually. There are "worthy" artists in every single genre.

    I think that some folks that I have known spread themselves so thin that that had no roots in anything because they never get past the "top 40" in a dozen genres.

    I really feel bad for the people who can't grow out of the one or two bands they listen to exclusively.

    In other words, the answer to the OP would be "yes".

    I hate all country. I like Rap/Hip-Hop, Funk, Blues, Jazz, R&B, some rock and some metal mostly power metal and bands like mastodon. I also like some pop mostly JPop.

    You even hate Jonny Cash and Willie Nelson? I find that hard to believe.

    This sums up what my answer would be.

    Outside of rock and roll though, the one genre I do hate is rap/hip-hop. I like classical/jazz/blues, but I just cannot find much redeeming qualities in rap even if I try.

    My motto: Music is like candy, you have to first take the wrapper out. XD

    Your childish narrow-minded ignorance needs to go back in the daycare you came from.

    I like what Im like, I cant help what Im attracted too. Yes, I limit myself to certain types of music. I keep up with most forms of extreme metal but I will listen to and collect 60s and 70s rock, jazz fusion, and some 90s stuff (Primus, FNM, Offspring, etc)

    I've found that there's an exception to every rule, really; I generally despise rap, but I love Run-DMC. You won't find me listening to much country... other than Brad Paisley.

    im a huge metal fan. Pretty much what i listen to on a daily basis. But that doesn't mean i only listen to metal. I can listen to everything. I used to love rap music when i was younger, but grew out of its juvenile leanings. I still listen to some old 2pac cd's or some old Tribe X every now and then to build up my nostalgia.
