I notice far more xNFP fans of Morrissey and The Smiths than INFJ fans, here and offline. But that might just be because there are more xNFPs around. Do people associate them with INFJs only because they think Morrissey is INFJ, or are there other reasons?
My favourite band is The Smiths but if it wasn't it would be System of a Down or Radiohead.
Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
ENFPs: Rob Thomas, Colby Caillat, anything singer/songwriter
INTPs: Rush and its modern antecedents, and The Magnetic Fields, anything technically intricate
ENTPs: Southern Culture on the Skids (Dirt Track Date indeed!), Mojo Nixon, anything in which the band is about how big their dick is while also being clever...
...and don't tell anyone, but ENTPs will have a secret stash of Weird Al they get out for special occasions.
I'd say in terms of my music preferences I'm probably an ESTP, ENTP or ENTJ I do NOT like whiny singer-songwriters...unless they are mind-blowingly good, and they usually aren't. I'd rather listen to something that brings out my shadow side!
INFPer here! Here are some of the artists that I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to (meaning I have at least two of their records or more) in my 22 years thus far in no particular personal most favorite to least favorite order:
Korn, Limp Bizkit, Offspring, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, Tool, Godsmack, Disturbed, Meshuggah, Hatebreed, Rammstein, Chimaira, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Slipknot, System Of A Down, Mudvayne, Sepultura, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Strapping Young Lad, Mushroomhead, Led Zeppellin, Jane's Addiction, Deftones, Eminem, Kid Rock, Stone Temple Pilots.... I'll add Mad Season (Layne Staley's side project in the mid-90s in this list) too cuz they only had ONE album!
I also appreciate alot of songs by artists like Ministry, Sevendust, 2 Live Crew, Coal Chamber, Death, Diamond Head, Cypress Hill, Cannibal Corpse, Dog Fashion Disco, Drowning Pool, Flaw, Beatles, Eric Clapton, Filter, Fear Factory, Grand Funk Railroad, Green Day, Guns N' Roses, Helmet, Incubus, Kittie, Mamas and the Papas, Lacuna Coil, Megadeth, POD, Alanis Morissete, Powerman 5000, Foo Fighters, Probot, White/Rob Zombie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Rolling Stones, Snoop Dogg, Staind, Static-X, the Who and of course the great Michael Jackson.
Point is, typcasting what people of each type will only gravitate towards certain kinds of artists/bands is useless. Looking at anyone's iPod playlist will only hammer this point home!
