    The maximum amount of poll choices are regrettable. Many of the genres listed have so many subfields! Voted regardless.

    I might as well list some of my favourite subgenres:

    Metal -
    * Melodic Death
    * Power
    * Progressive
    * Symphonic

    Jazz -
    * Acid
    * Nu-Jazz (also an electonic subfield)
    * Smooth

    Electronic -
    * Ambient
    * Darkwave
    * Downtempo
    * Harsh EBM (sort of new to this)
    * House
    * Industrial / Tribal Industrial
    * Trance / Dark Trance
    * Trip-Hop

    Also like experimental music, fusions of the above genres as well as the voted options, etc.
    Not really.

    Classic metal for me, specifically NWOBHM and thrash.

    1) Some of the categories, I like only one or two bands in that genre, so I'm not sure if I should check them.

    2) What is "big band"?

    3) I would have liked a prog rock option, too....and I would maybe distinguish classic rock from new rock. But that's just me. Pretty good poll options given the limitations.

    Yeah, given the limitations. But some of the picks were kinda weird in what was broken out as its own category and which were glued together by a slash.

    For instance, bluegrass / folk - I seriously hate bluegrass but I listen to a lot of folk music. So, I didn't select that option. I like Irish music, but I don't like new agey shite like Enya. Still, I held my nose and picked New Age/Celtic even though Irish folk was probably meant to go in the other category. It was just that I find Enya in association less odious than bluegrass.

    Also, I like Latin music but not salsa. Salsa is rather damn specific to have its own category. I picked it only because it seemed like the only category where Latin music would belong.

    And I'm not surprised how many picks rock is getting considering a lot of the other options are subsets of rock music - ie., who is going to pick indie rock + even more specific rock subgenres and not also pick rock?

    Music from the 1940s, like Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey.
    "Swing."

    How is there no "Blues" option? And how is there no "Tom Waits" option?

    For Jeff and Oso:

    Good grief how many times can it be said? There were only 20 choice slots available and it grew out of the post wondering which type is more likely to like metal.

    Anyone else may make their own poll if they don't like the way this one was set up.

    Someone could make more specific genre poll, like for rock and have all the possible choices within rock or whatever. Use your time and energy to do it if it really bugs you that much.

    If it actually bugged me, I wouldn't have praised you along with nitpicky criticism, I'd have damned you with condescending praise.

    It's too late to apologize.
