    I listen to many artists my main following is Kalafina (and Kajiura Yuki related stuffs). I also listen to the other artists/bands like System of A Down, the Corrs, Kawada Mami (and other I've Sounds in general), Atomic Kitten, Spice Girls, Linkin Park, Adele, Sandaime J Soul Brothers (if they're not categorized as pseudo-idol group lol) and many more. For the more recent stuffs, I have taken an interest in Sam Smith lately and I have a couple of songs I like from Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus.

    Hmm, non-idols that I like... Haha, I shouldn't be drawing such a blank!

    Well, last year when I went to visit friends in Canada, I got to go to a Mother Mother concert, and I fell in love with them! They're a really awesome band, and I've listened to Burning Pile so often that it borders on an obsession. I'm also casually interested in Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons, Carrie Underwood, Lana Del Rey, Marina and The Diamonds, Ke$ha and Panic! At The Disco.

    And besides 48g & µ's, i only listen to some Anisongs that i heard while i was watching some random anime, and Eir Aoi's songs from Sword Art Online.

    Eep, this is gonna be a long list for me. Music is such an integral part of my life that there are very few genres I haven't listened to or don't like.
    • Huge fan of Korean music. Not just the idol stuff, I branch out and like some of ballad, folk and rap. Discovered it at the same time as AKB so that's here to stay. I couldn't possibly list every artist I love for this as it would be in the hundreds, so honourable mentions to BTS, Big Bang, Mamamoo and f(x), who are my current top 4.
    • Favourite artists outside of Korea and Japan are: Delta Goodrem and Trivium. Like, polar opposites. Delta is Australian, does soaring ballads and general pop but could essentially do anything; I could listen to her endlessly. Trivium are metal, influenced by Metallica and other thrash heroes; I've met them, love all their music and they were the group that got me into metal and the festival scene.
    • I still listen to country - Taylor Swift, Stevie Nicks, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Jodi Mitchell (I just group them together); metal, rock etc (I've seen nearly every group I like including BMTH, Slipknot, Metallica, Slayer, Limp Bizkit, Evanescence, Within Temptation, The Pretty Reckless, Machine Head, Dragonforce, Arch Enemy, Young Guns... this list could go on for miles; the exception being Linkin Park who I love and have never seen </3); some random pop (t.A.T.u, Amy Studt, Ana Johnnson, Kesha, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding before she got crap and some others...) and industrial (Goth techno, e.g. Angelspit, Combichrist, Suicide Commando...) which I don't listen to as much anymore.

    I am surprised (in a good way) to see so many people loving Depeche Mode here. they are my favorite Western band. it often sounds surprising for my friends though, as it's quite uncommon to see 17 year-olds enjoying 80's synthpop that much.

    my absolute idol (for 8 years now !) is Lady Gaga, and lately I've been listening a lot to Years&Years, CHVRCHES, Kid Cudi, as well as some French bands like Stupeflip, Odezenne, Noir Désir or Indochine. another of my interests is ska-punk.

    my favorite band is currently 神聖かまってちゃん (Shinsei Kamattechan). and mostly the Japanese alternative scene, with 凜として時雨 (Ling Toshite Shigure), アーバンギルド (Urbangarde), 大森靖子 (Oomori Seiko), Sheena Ringo and 東京事変, just to name a few. Capsule is also nice !

    I used to be a huge K-Music buff, now I mostly listen to 못 (MoT), IU, Epik High and ASEUL.

    Because I went through many "phases" throughout my life, I discovered many types of music and now ended up having an almost unlimited taste (which is something good, I guess).
    Metal: Samael, Borknagar, Emperor, Arcturus, Abigail Williams, In Flames, BABYMETAL, Blind Guardian, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, (early) Metallica, Hypocrisy.
    Gothic/Punk Rock, Alternative: Joy Division, Misfits, The Cure, SOAD
    EBM/Electro: Combichrist, Die Krupps, Welle:Erdball, Front 242, Spetznaz, Orange Sector, Feindflug, Laibach
    Classic: Preferably compositions of Bach, Händel, Sibelius, Wagner and Schubert
    Jazz: Almost anything goes.
    Hip-Hop/Rap: Northern german Hip-Hop of the 90s (DJ Stylewarz, Ferris MC, D-Flame etc.)
    Other Stuff: Alexandros, Ikimono Gakari, Bruce Springsteen, Deep Purple, AC/DC Depeche Mode, Covenant, Kreuzweg Ost, Triarii, and so many more that nobody is going to read anyway

    I bet you are a german "90ies" guy? Because we have very similar taste in terms of Gothic/Punk/EBM/HipHop.

    Was refreshing to read. I dont like Jazz, however :>

    On point. However, that "old school" Hip-Hop was actually the first music genre I've actively listened to in the early 2000s as a child, with my interest in Electro/Wave/Gothic coming up much later (not before 2008 or so), so it's not directly related to my generation/age. Jazz and Classic Music often tend to go hand in hand with its listeners and I'm no exception, but yeah, I gotta say: I'm a very casual jazz listener and don't have a favorite artist in particular.

    I just want to post this somewhere and I thought this is the right thread...

    Basically Hirai Ken, one of my favorite Japanese male vocalist make himself very accessible. It is really nice to see the crowds went from basically zero to a lot. Of course they probably couldn't do this kind of thing with a female idol.
    Anyway, I'm enjoying the various reactions from the crowds :)

    HIGH AND MIGHTY COLOR, unfortunately, they're disbanded as 2 of their members are members of INKT now and I'm not a fan of INKT.
