    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.

    i like any kind of music with soul or ambiance. it has to move me emotionally some way....i don't like a lot of rock music that is about anything that doesn't matter to me or from a point of view that i don't relate to...but love folk or bluesy rock...and a lot of classic rock too...and some progressive rock.

    i also like opera, house (or other electronic varieties ), classical, jazz

    you likely just don't relate to it and others do...not the huge mystery elfboy.

    What kind of rock are we talking about? And it is pretty much like any music. Different forms of rock appeal to different crowds.

    Listen, see what you get from listening to them. But if you don't get it, you don't get it.

    i see i see...well like wolfie said a lot of it is just visceral...people vibe on the energy..just like with any music you like...it puts you into an emotional state that you enjoy...you appreciate the skill of the musicians...the vocalists voice reaches in and grabs your soul in some way. it's about relating to the place the person is singing/playing from....i'm having a hard time believing you don't just get this on your own.

    I don't know. With no offence intended, I struggle to understand why anyone could not like any kind of rock at all.

    I suppose I like it because it can express the full range of emotions: it can be intense, exuberant, romantic, cheeky, aggressive, thrilling, pensive, fun, melancholy, among many other things. I also think its appeal has to do with the guitar; there's just something inherently marvelous about it. It's such a versatile and expressive instrument.

    Dude. Reading the OP makes me think that you really don't understand rock. Not just in an emotional way, but with the knowledge of the genre. Rock is so so SO diverse. The guy that listens to nirvana will not be the same guy that listens to nightwish. The guy singing summer of 69 may find slipknot disgusting and offensive. It's very hard to answer your question when there are so many many subgenres of rock. I also find it odd that you find rock overly simplistic. I mean yeah, there are plenty of rock songs that are very simple, but there are also intensely complicated pieces too. I would say that certain genres of metal are a lot like classical music. What can I say? You're overgeneralising.

    that is precisely the point

    my answer to you is the same as to Lady X. whichever subgenre you like and why will suffice as an answer
