I like rock music because it throws in the kitchen sink of all types of musical influences; it's experimental. Has elements of classical in it, jazz, blues, rnb, world music, electronic. The lyrics of songs I tend to listen to the most have a central message of revolution which appeals to me, as well as a social/philosophical bend to it. There's also quite a great deal of more romantic prog rock pieces I really enjoy... ones that have a bit more classical influences in it. I tend to listen to prog rock, pop/rock, soft rock, synth rock, new wave, classic rock, and the like.
