I vote for EDM. I listen to everything to be honest, but I like EDM the most.
Rock- I only listen to the good ol' rock, not the trashy garbage present today.

Pop- There is absolutely no emotions in pop nowadays, and the songs aren't even natural, it's all remade on computers. (Not saying EDM is exactly natural, but EDM like Daft Punk and Kavisnky and similiar, you can still hear and feel songs full of emotion)

Your opinion?

Care to explain what EDM is, first?

Until I know what EDM is, i'm going with Rock, because that would consider the monster sub genre known as metal, which would include everything under that, and I like a lot of classic rock.

I'm guessing...Electronic dance music?

I would say rock, and then pop and EDM closely tied. As Turtel said, metal is a sub genre of rock, and many of the bands I love branch out from metal.

Ah spot on....Well just to clarify I like a lot of crossover bands, i.e bands that utilise and blend a few genres like electro and rock together. Rammstein can be an example.

Electronic Dance Music,


Would that include Dubstep? Because if so, then this is going to be a much tougher decision than I thought.

Yes it would.

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in south London, England. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals"

Good old Wiki.

Yes, and techno.

Old rock is great. For example Bon Jovi and Survivor.

Pop is actually OK. I used to like Michael Jackson.

EDM. Nah, some songs are good.

Techno is a very, very bad genre of EDM

That was music better than anything i know, I'm talking about today's pop, Bieber and Gomez and similiar.

edm used to be good until it morphed with pop.


Not every genre morphed with pop, that's mostly House and Techno. IDM, DnB, Dubstep etc. etc is really good. French electro especially
