And around the time "Music" came out, she was really cool in an interview I saw once.. where she was re-learning how to play guitar again. Gaga is a former Juliard student, but with a liking for Burlesque, Queen, German Industrial, straight pop..among other things. She's just got her own collection of tastes that can't be singled down. Which is what I'm trying to say about many people.
    I know, I'm not trying to pigeon hole people for their tastes by any means, but I'm trying to understand if there are any general similarities between most of the fans of certain musical genres.

    You might as well ask why anyone likes the color red.

    Because it rocks.



    -Use of 16th notes (complex)
    -Use of Blastbeats (complex)
    -Use of Exotic Scales (complex)
    -Satan is lulz (questionable)



    If you think rock sucks you're not listening to the right kind of METAL.

    To answer the OP: BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME.

    Some of my fav bands include Def Leppard, Led Zeppelin and Metallica (well, the Black Album - which admittedly probably doesn't make me a real Metallica fan.) Typical INFJ, eh?

    I also love bands/singers perhaps more typical to my type such as Sting and Crowded House, and I was classically trained (piano), and love classical music too.

    I find "why would anyone like rock music" a really odd question. I mean, just because you don't... I tend to be at my happiest when I'm at a loud concert.

    okay so you're looking for people with a preference for rock music. I cant help you there. And its not a bad observation, I would say I agree with your observations.

    clearly an INFJ 6w5 Sp/Sx liking this is evidence that this may be less type related than I initially though

    i can't think of any types that wouldn't like rock music. some might be more likely but it's really widespread and there are all different kinds..

    infp 4w5's are probably supposed to listen to morrissey or some shit but i mostly listen to hip-hop.

    makes sense to me. hip hop is very Ne-ish and there's plenty of 4-ishness in there too

    Why would anyone dislike Rock?



    Serious answer: I'm not a big fan. My musical interests range from rap and hip pop to Enya, which makes me a bad parameter. Name a great band and I will usually only like 10% of their musics.

    I don't think things like this are very type-related. A bit, sure, but there are too many other factors at work. My older brother's influence has a lot to do with me liking hard rock/metal. He started listening to hard rock by the time I was 8 or so and while I didn't like some of it, I loved others. He's probably an ISTJ, it's probably a bit more typical for him. I suspect that without his influence, I might still have gotten into bands like Led Zeppelin eventually (he's not nearly as big a fan as I am) but maybe not some of the others.

    As for classical, my parents put us into music lessons starting quite young. My dad loves classical music and was always playing his records when we sat down for dinner etc. I think that influenced my love of rock music too to the extent that I love very melodic music (whether hard rock or something softer.) If it's really drony or thrashy, I probably won't like it.
