Just kind of curious what type of music everyone here listens to. There seems to be a wide age span here, but everyones personality seems to be fairly similar.
I myself like a large variety of music, but mostly 70's, 80's and 90's rock/classic rock and I also listen to a lot of older country music.
How about you fellas?

well....lessee, I just went to a record (yes, record) store & picked up a few cassettes for the 6000....Van Halen Balance, Cinderella Heartbreak Station, Journey's Greatest Hits, Queensryche Hear in the Now Frontier, and the soundtrack to Godzilla (from 1998, has a great version of Bowie's "Heroes" by the Wallflowers...so I guess I fall in the Classic/Hair generation as well...I guess it's not a coincidence that my 6000 was built in my junior year of high school...

I used to listen to classic rock like its no-bodys business (floyd, zeppelin, van halen, billy squire), and the great guitarist stevie ray vaughn, but more recently I have moved on to 90's alternative/grunge, Soundgarden is my favorite band, throw some pearl jam in there, some post-grunge like bush or live, and even a little bit of new rock is ok. Oh, forgot metallica.

Rock/hip-hop/rap.

What's the name of the genre that mixes both rap and rock (Linkin Park does this a lot, especially when they bring in Jay-Z)?

Here we go again.....I put up w/the tapes because I like the apperance of the stock radio & didn't want to lose the wheel controls by installing an a/mkt unit. I own PLENTY of cd's and have a cassette adaptor for my mp3 player....

I refuse to install newer stereo equipment in my old cars.I even removed the Pioneer Super Tuner CD player from my one. The adapter kit was GOD awful looking and I re-installed a real nice AM/FM cassette,with EQ. Good enough then,Good enough now. Not a fan at all of the ricer, boom boxers that thump 3 blocks away..Lost enough hearing in my lifetime,would like to keep what little I have left till I am planted in the ground..

They do make 1.5 din CD players that look kick ass, and newer GM stock CD players plug right in and bolt right up. I had a 00 GP GT CD player with 7 band equalizer, red lighting, and Pontiac on it. Worked well, and looked nice.

Just kind of curious what type of music everyone here listens to?....

Dance, house, trance, "techno" anything fast and upbeat. Listen to XM and my MP3's most of the time. Have been into MP3 since before Napster came and went.

Like some of ALL genre of music. I like the country/ rock crossovers, but not love songs and ESPECIALLY NOT "someone died" songs. Don't like rap, don't like music where they whine. Don't like music where they use foul language (except for certain songs are OK anyway).

When I don't have XM or my MP3 player, these local stations are OK but WHOA the commercials are ludicrous.

Like this local one when they don't get on a "love song" or "someone died song" stint:
http://radiotime.com/station/s_23328/WTXT_981.aspx

This one is also good, but certain DJ's are better than others:
http://radiotime.com/station/s_1009/The_Eagle_1069.aspx

This one is a good alternative station. We used to have a station called WRAX The X, which was world famous for bringing out new alternative music a few years back. Something happened (political I beleive) and now they are gone. Some of the people from The X are on this station:
http://www.1055thevulcan.com/main.html

Always good! These 3 are what I mostly listen to, plus the 80's and 90's channels:

http://www.xmradio.com/onxm/channelpage.xmc?ch=80
http://www.xmradio.com/onxm/channelbio.xmc?ch=44

A good friend of mine is "into the club scene" and always has loads of MP3's and bootleg CD's to share when we visit.

Looking forward to seeing other folks responses, could be interesting!
Thanks,
David

Lol! Nope I modded my radio to hook up to XM and MP3 player. Like the look and sound of the Delco EQ radio.

Will have to show my "minimalist engineering" aux input someday.....

I listen to mostly ska and punk. This is actually the origin of my screen name, which I've been using since 1997. I do like a lot of '90s alternative too.

they DO make radio's that interface with your car's factory steering wheel controls.
when they make a car they are skimpy in the audio department, they are not going to dump $600 in a music system, if that was the case then they wouldnt sell car radio's
i have never seen a factory radio that sounds better then a sony or kenwood

Most aftermarket radios look terrible, in my opinion. They never fit right and there are always numerous jerry-rigged bezels and adapters around them. They stick out like a large growth on the dash that needs to be excised by a surgeon.

........ But most don't look nearly as ghetto as my auxiliary input adapter built in a hurry before my last trip to Louisiana!

I enjoy a lot of Japanese Anime soundtracks with scattered techno music. Current rock is my main preference with a ton of classic rock to follow. Right now I have a serious craving for Tool.

I managed to find a company that makes some nice ones and orderd one. Pricey and with some modifications I could get one to work in the 6000. I can take some pictures of it sometime when I get a chance. might be a while cause the car is in storage for now.

Definitly Dance, House, some remixed stuff forsure.. And a little bit of everything else but country..

House, rock, death, metal, disco, beat. etc. etc etc. has been around and gone off the radar many times, but the blues has been here since before the beginning, and it's still going strong, and in no way does it look as it's going away any time soon.... Not BECAUSE of that fact do I like the blues, but I do like the blues because of it's sincerity and feeling.

In 30 years.... how many people will be listening to house or metal or other kind of "music" ? Not many, and it's not going to be because of bad compositions, but rather because of bad "music". .... and the blues will still be alive and well...... that's just a fact and nothing personal.

Completely true. Won't argue that a bit! I want to say this though; there are techno / electronic / dance songs that I first heard 15 years ago, and I still enjoy as much today as the first time I heard it. There is far more "crap" to weed through with this than with blues music, but there are still quite a few great tracks.

I just got back from Florence, AL which has a rich heritage in the Blues. I've been in the area and seen The W.C Handy Music Festival (http://www.wchandymusicfestival.org). The whole of Lauderdale County is awash in wonderful sounds, the smell of barbecue cooking, and a spirit that could be felt even by the blind and deaf! You would love this!

It's just a few miles from the junkyard with the cows, too! :)

Ken T.

I hate to tell you but I did that "on the fly" and didn't take notes. I have removed the tape deck from that radio and connected to the harness where it went.

Someone else here has a diagram for keeping the tape deck intact and doing it without using any relays, maybe they will post some info.

I like country, rock, mixtures of both. I like some rap, pop r&b, dance. Really anything if I can understand the words. I love music focused on acoustic guitars playing really, like a lot of punk too.

I think I don't like much classic because I like faster songs, ones that make me wanna dance...my favorite song right now is Four Nonblonde's "What's up" but I'll probably hate it next month, but its fun to sing loudly at work and watch the cameras to see how the customers react, last night I made $20 in tips lol
