I was in band for 5~6 years playing Tuba, from 6th grade to halfway through my junior year and actually aspired well (ex: placing first chair region band in tuba at a middle school level in the 4th largest city in the US in 8th grade). I appreciate music, understand harmonics and melodics, know most the little italian and latin terms on the sheet music, etc.
Why do I mention this? Simple: I'm proving that I have knowledge and passion with complex music because I'm about to throw all that out the window in my next paragraph.
Throughout the years, I've gone through phases, obsessing over genres of music that seem to break all the rules about structure and music in general. Throughout the latter part of my childhood, I was a Nirvanaholic, bathing my mind in grunge music and enjoying the occasional dissonance involved inbetween the shredding guitar chords, even studying other grunge bands. I would find the odd songs that nobody remembers from bands everyone's heard of in that category.
In just the past 3 years, I did a 180 in terms of music obsession. I got into rap. At first it was gangsta rap and Chopped & Screwed Texas rap (youtube it), and then I discovered horrorcore. Now, I'm constantly listening to ICP, Twiztid, Tech N9ne, Dark Lotus, and all of the wicked clown music that is more talking than singing with grinding voices, rhyming words with sound effects, and about half of the music is themed around killing or getting high.
