    Ugh That's kinda hard, I like different types of rock for different reasons. I like music in general because of the different emotions it creates in me. I like lovey dovey sappy rock because I like to be lovey dovey. I like dark stuff (eg. types of black metal, grunge) to take you to a dark place, it sort of has this forbidden fruit feel to it. A lot of other types of rock I like because it's fun and gives me this sense of elation (free bird, power metal, the list is pretty long).

    These explanations are definitely not limited to rock though. I like jazz hip hop because it makes me feel relaxed too. I'm not sure there's anything specific about rock that I like. I just like exploring different emotions and music is the perfect way to do that. I don't really understand why anyone would enjoy music if it doesn't get them emotionally involved, personally.

    What about prog rock Elf-boy? You might like that if you're such a classical music fan. It's anything but simple: it has that elevated, epic feel about it and complex structure that might be more appealing to you.

    I like rock music because when opera radio stations call October "Rocktober" it just doesn't have the same appeal.
    Plus you can't really do this to opera. (I should note that I actually do listen to opera as well)

    Certain parts -- and then you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around

    Also: @Elfboy, you should have a listen to @Burning Rave's links. That was a good variety -- although it was almost entirely recent rock, and the sort of rock to be on rock radio and not hit radio. (I got warm fuzzies when I saw "It's Been A While" in there Brings back memories...)

    I also agree with @animenagai about different types of rock appealing to me for different reasons*, and I agree with @Southern Kross about prog rock being a good possibility. Here's some more prog for you to try out:
    [YOUTUBE="zqx_egzW6js"]Celtic-ish prog[/YOUTUBE]
    [YOUTUBE="CN11bI1_sZo"]Anglican prog[/YOUTUBE]
    [YOUTUBE="X84ZHSj2JnQ"]Fascist prog[/YOUTUBE]

    Also, if you like operatic vocals, there are a lot of operatic symphonic metal bands out there, with opera singers doing lead vocals. Trying to think of some... Obviously Evanescence is the most mainstream of them, but there are more. (There's also the soundtrack to "Repo! the Genetic Opera", which I don't like but I know a lot of theatre types who do.)


    *an abridged version of my personal list:
    - Alt-rock/alt-metal/grunge (e.g. Soundgarden, Seether, Tool), because everyone had their go-to genre when they were alienated middle schoolers, and that was mine. It appealed to me then because of the rage and resentment (I related to it and found it cathartic); also, I had friends who listened to it too, and I found my local rock station to be the most reliably appealing station in town. Now I listen to it for a lesser version of the previous reason (i.e. I can still be resentful and angry but not so much anymore), as well as nostalgia. EDIT: It has also consistently appealed to me because it is the exact opposite of what appeals to me least in music: sappy/cheesy ballads. I can stand most music, but I honest to God want to gag when people play me Celine Dion, etc.
    (Side note: Even the bad stuff of that genre (e.g. Shinedown, Nickelback) appeals to me, because if I'm going to listen to music with my brain shut off, I'd rather that it be bad rock, than bad rap. Bad rock doesn't offend me in the same way that bad hit radio does.
    - Progressive rock (e.g. Yes) and progressive metal (e.g. Tool). I just love how creative and complicated it is. I love that it pushes boundaries, I love that the lyrics are so well-thought-out and the time signatures change and the musicianship is so consistently impressive.
    - Certain indie rock, because of songwriting and creativity. e.g. I like Sufjan Stevens because of his instrumentation and because he's the only good Christian rock musician that I know of; the others ime are generic and horribly boring.

    yeah, but to opera you can move like this. if you move like an opera singer to contemporary music, people just call you a snob, but I don't think there is anything snobby about wanting to move like a diva =P

    You know you can like both opera and rock, right? Just ask Freddie Mercury.

    Music is just intelligent arranged noise. Some more intelligent than others. Learn how to play an instrument (if you don't.. and I assume you don't.. most people who prefer specific genres don't), and you'll see the arrangements behind many varying pieces as being similar. A C note, a chorus, and a bridge will always be what they are, no matter how they're presented. It's the same systems at work underneath.
