    pink floyd, mike oldfield, elton john - since i was 14.

    jimi hendrix - since i was 15.

    syd barrett (solo) - since i was 16.

    radiohead, akvarium (russian soft rock band), alisa (russian heavy metal/christian rock band) - since i was 18.

    dead can dance, smashing pumpkins - since i was 19.

    i still listen to the same but with some additions, e.g. the cocteau twins or electronic music, which i have grown really fond of.

    there has also been a lot of pop music inbetween, mostly disco and 80s-90s dance music - f.r. david, modern talking, abba, ace of base, haddaway, masterboy, dj bobo, pharao, doctor alban, contemporary radio hit singles. i can't say i listen to these in the full sense of the word - i tune out and go into daydream mode, but as background music, they are great. something about the strong beat and dynamic flow of the music is stimulating to the imagination.

    True but it's actually from the movie Role Models. My kids tell me I'm like the female Paul Rudd.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    As I kid I listened to the things my parents listened to, which was mostly grunge and alternative (Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, White Stripes, Beck etc.). My favorite song at age 2 was Soundgarden's Spoonman; it feels oddly nostalgic to me now. I also really liked Love and Rockets. My father also listened to some electronica, like the Crystal Method and the Chemical Brothers, and those songs were always my favorite.

    Around 2001 or 2002 (when I was 11 or so), my father started listening to indie music, so I listened to that quite a bit. This continued for years, and I still listen to bands like Le Tigre, Low, Ivy, Grandaddy, Death From Above 1979.

    It wasn't until about 7th grade in 2005 when I began listening to 'my own' music. It started out with Beck's Guero album, and shortly afterwards I discovered Amon Tobin's Foley Room. I think it was actually the "Experimental Electronica" iTunes essential (which is now gone, sadly) where I discovered Amon Tobin and many other experimental artists, including Autechre and Clark. Since then I've listened to mostly pretentious experimental music, IDM and other electronica. Animal collective and Paavoharju are great bands. Currently I'm really into Oneohtrix Point Never, Actress, and, like always, Clark (Body Riddle is an incredible album). I somehow didn't hear Neutral Milk Hotel until like, two years ago.

    Techno, Trance, IDM, Drum-n-Bass, Dubstep, etc.

    Now, in my 30s, I still like most of the same music--except for the Heavy Metal and some of the Rap.

    You definitely need to check out J Dilla. He's influenced Dabrye, Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, Samiyam, and many, many other artists.

    no, I've just never liked pop or rock music since I was little. my parents would play 60s/70s rock and I would be like "oh God my ears!" and leave the room. mostly I actually listened to movie soundtracks and such, but I can't think of a lot of composers for movie soundtracks so I stuck with an opera theme since I also liked classical music as a child.
    PS: INFU LOL! that's awesome
