    To answer the OP's question: Because it gets me moving.

    I like all kinds of music but hard rock/metal tends to be largely what I listen to the most. There is just something about a power chord...i don't know why but it just draws such a strong reaction from me.

    And different songs/bands/etc.. have a different effect on me and as such I listen to them when I'm in different moves.

    For examples, songs like

    [YOUTUBE="E2NyPbT2WoY"]Black Sabbath - Paranoid[/YOUTUBE]

    and

    [YOUTUBE="EXHnTKcjTL0"]Judas Priest - Painkiller[/YOUTUBE]

    Seriously get my blood pumping and get me moving. I can not sit still with music like that playing.

    On the other hand, some rock songs are just good songs to listen around the office like

    [YOUTUBE="Cm2-K6ttHYs"]Led Zepplin - Good Times Bad Times[/YOUTUBE]

    and other songs are songs that inspire feel good/postive/want-to-chill with my friends music like

    [YOUTUBE="csTNcH-7rVs"]America - Ventura Highway[/YOUTUBE]

    and

    [YOUTUBE="LEOxMsTxLOE"]The Verve - Rather Be[/YOUTUBE]

    I could literally go on but...I'd rather just leave it at that.

    I'm certainly NOT trying to convince you to like anything. If you can't imagine why other people would enjoy good lyrics even if you don't, then there's little point in explaining why we like anything that you don't like.

    Since it seems you DO like some rock music, then this thread is rather pointless.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Sure, why not. Evanescence is pretty cool.

    I didn't bitchslap you!

    The difference between ENFP Te and ESTJ Te is that ESTJs don't use it as a tool for a specific purpose (e.g. for bitchslapping). We just use it all the time and don't know how to communicate without it. I used it a bit harsher in this thread because, since you use it that way, I thought I was speaking your language.

    Ah well! Learned my lesson there.

    I remember there was a thread on personalities and music tastes. I think Peguy started it, it was a link to a news article. I remember rock lovers were generally mellow types according to the article. As far as I can remember...

    I started off liking blues and blues rock, then I got into rock, metal (mostly blues influenced like Sabbath etc, then some punk rock. I like a lot of different music but I tend to like simply structured stuff. I don't know what that says about me but yeah...

    Interesting! Do you remember what the non-mellow types listened to? I would have thought rock would attract non-mellow people... but maybe it's because it would be cathartic to mellow people? I for one am not an aggressive person but I find loud rock to be cathartic for that reason. I guess people who are aggressive all the time would want a different sort of musical catharsis -- maybe music that makes them vulnerable?

I get in a kind of a angry groove, and might lose patience with some people. I'm not proud of it, but whatever. On what planet is rock mellow? Not on planet motherfucker, I guess.

    I like Sabbath too, but then.. I just feel exhilirated in that case. I'm not kicking back and chilling out. Same with even Hendrix. He's got a lot of reverb and delay in his songs. Feels spacey.. like he's taking me for a ride. I still get goosebumps from his leads. I wouldn't call the response mellow.

    I feel that way in response to a lot of music too. I can't remember if mellow was the word they used, it was something like that. Not in response to music but as an overall personality thing. I don't even know if that is true either, interesting lead in to other conversation is what I thought...

    Maybe it is something like that, I don't know. I'll try and look for the thread. Changing the subject... I remember reading about a powerlifting champ that recommending listening to music you hate while training because it makes you aggressive... that never worked for me. I always liked AC/DC.
