    This is a big reason for me. I like novelty, change, and experimentation, and rock music, as a subgenre of popular music in general, is always evolving. It brings in some of the best bits of everything else.

    I also like the simplicity, especially when it takes more complex styles of music & fits them to a rock music format. Sometimes expressing something in a more simple manner is far more difficult than doing it in a complex way. It also makes rock music seem very raw, which in turn, feels real & emotionally moving.

    When this combines with intelligent lyrics, then it's a great combination of technical simplicity & emotional complexity. Some of the most difficult things, especially emotionally, are communicated in a relatively simple way.

    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.
    As an extension of this idea, rock music (again, being part of popular music) is "the music of the people". I can see why the self-proclaimed, elitist, aristocratic elfboy may not find this appealing . However, I find the accessibility of it very appealing. This is music ANYONE can make. You just need a guitar. This makes it very relatable to the everyman because it is made by the everyman for the everyman.

    I also enjoy the lyrical content. The genres you list @Elfboy don't seem to have in depth lyrical content. Rock music has become increasingly poetic since, IDK, the 50s (?). The modern poet is arguably the rock singer-songwriter, as few read contemporary poetry anymore.
    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)

    frankly, I don't care at all about poetry or lyrics. I'm 100% about melody.

    I think we can mostly thank Bob Dylan for this.

    Agree 100% with this post.

Moments of pure sensation, rather than dealing with thoughts and the feelings that they trigger all the time, are incredibly wonderful. And that's what happens when I listen to loud rock music or I'm at a concert. It releases me and it releases the Se, and it feels incredibly exhilarating.

    Although it's not me wanting to cultivate a certain image, I have to admit that it kind of tickles me to be the girl who adores Def Leppard and who will also ramble on at length about obscure poetry. People sometimes think you need to be one or the other, and it's not really the case.
    Lots of reasons, but mostly what SilkRoad said. Like Wolfy said, it's visceral. It gets me out of my head and experiencing pure sensation. And that's what I want out of music. I want it to get me charged up, get me exhilarated...I want to be in the middle of 20,000 people going out of their minds in the exact same way. That's why I like rock. I think what you want out of listening to music is going to be a big factor in what kind of music you listen to.

    Also, only rock stars get to wear spangly silver jackets and pink boas and still have everyone want to fuck them!

    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Might've been both. I just think she was linking different ideas easier than you. Her perception is dynamic. Umm.. I guess the free association thing typical of Ne. Your perception seems more static. You tend to push back with your mental doorstops and convictions. "Sarah Brightman! Ugh!" "Hippies. Ugh!" Missing the point on why these things are being mentioned in the first place. She's a cute little frog jumping around from lily pad to lily pad and you just want to stay on one. OK, bad illustration. Frogs aren't cute, are they? Or are they?

    Just an observation.
