    The other day I got to the point where I was so sick of my music that I deleted like 90% of my songs, so I desperately need new music. I would appreciate any recommendations, regardless of genre as I'm still exploring what sort of music is my "type", I'm quite open minded in what I listen to so please leave some recommendations ?
    Muse - showbiz, thoughts of a dying athiest, hyper music, space dementia, darkshines
    Radiohead - jisaw falling into place, let down, creep
    Alice in chains - would, man in the box
    Nirvana - heart shaped box
    Placebo - song to say goodbye, loud like love
    RHCP - californication, scar tissue
    Cage the Elephant - come a little closer, sweetie little jean
    Catfish and the bottlemen - kathleen
    The walkmen - the rat, heaven
    Lana del rey - without you
    Blink-182 - i miss you, adams song
    Tame impala - let it happen, the less i know the better
    Bloc party - helicopter

    what stuff do you normally listen to? - My fav part is when the beat drops
    Hmmm I always found it difficult to describe my music taste xD I like songs with a good beat regardless of whether its slow and chill or fast or what. I can't really decide on one genre as being my type of music but I would say I listen to pop music and house music the most? My favourite kpop songs right now are: CL - Hello *****es, EXO - Monster, Sistar - I Like That

    With regards to house and music in particular, Eureka Seven focuses on House music whereas Cowboy Bebop jazz, and Samura Champloo Hip-hop.
    Tiger Track is a lovely track from eureka seven try listening to it. Makes we want to start popping and dancing. Imagine riding a surfboard in the air dodging missiles with abrasive maneuvers.

    What genres do you already listen to? Will base recommendations for new music based on your answer.

    Oblivion - Grimes (dream pop)
    Play - iamamiwhoami (dream pop)
    Untrust Us - Crystal Castles (electropop)

    Fineshrine - Purity Ring (chillwave / indie pop)
    The Worst - Jhene Aiko (R&B)
    Never Matter - Toro y Moi (chillwave) - personal fave out of the songs I've listed (very feel good song. watch the video on youtube too if you can)

    Try Nujabes. I like his style, "Arurian Dance" comes to mind so does "Feather" and "Counting Stars" 2 of these tracks appear in Samurai Champloo
    I am just a Otaku though i listen to anime music. But it still good. You got some good background soundtracks and openings/ endings.
    Sometimes its not just music you need to guide you, Anime can help.
    if your stuck in a ditch watch Welcome to the Nhk or Tatami Galaxy if your feeling noir and old school watch cowboy bebop, or if you need some faith in yourself watch Gurren Lagann or Great Teacher Onizuka(This one is especially old but you might like it).

    Any Genre eh? Well... Mostly Rock and Metal, but I suppose I may as well post.
    • (Mostly Japanese) Babymetal... Pretty much everything. It's a strange combination of J-Pop and Metal, somehow that combination works.
    • Devon Werkheiser - Light Years
    • Ozzy Osbourne... Again, pretty much everything. Earlier stuff is rather light, stuff after 1988 is generally heavier as Zakk Wylde loves heavy tones, and seems to have a pinch harmonics fetish.
    • (German) Rammstein - Ohne Dich
    • Disturbed - The Light
    • Guns N' Roses - November Rain
    • Alter Bridge - Show Me a Leader
    • Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators (MK&TC) - The Dissident
    • Slash Ft. MK&TC - Avalon
    • Slash Ft. MK&TC - Wicked Stone
    • Sixx:A.M. - Let's Go
    • Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine
    • Guns N' Roses - Welcome To The Jungle
    • (German) Serum 114 - Die Nacht Mein Freund
    • Zodiac - Follow You
    • Emma Blackery - Sucks To Be You
    • (German) Megaherz - Einsam
    • Arctic Monkeys - R U Mine
    • Omega Lithium - Salvation Refused
    • Sabaton - Primo Victoria
    • (German) Rammstein - Ich Tu Dir Weh
    • Bloc Party - Helicopter
    • Fergie/Heart - Barracuda... Honestly, I'd only put one, but they both do a great job.
    • Aerosmith - Livin' On The Edge
    • Bon Jovi - Misunderstood
    • The Killers - When You Were Young
    • Green Day - Holiday
    • Bon Jovi - Bad Medicine (Specifically the version from: This Left Feels Right)
    • One Ok Rock - Smells Like Teen Spirit... Say what you want, these guys do a far better job and Cobain ever did.
    • Metallica - For Whom The Bell Tolls
    • Hollywood Undead - Levitate
    • (Some Japanese) One Ok Rock - The Beginning
    • (Some Japanese) One Ok Rock - Clock Strikes
    • Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) - I'll Be There For You
    • Bon Jovi - Dead or Alive
    • Mötley Crüe - Wild Side
    • Iron Maiden - Run To The Hills
    • Metallica - One
    Warning: May Contain Nickelback
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Nickelback - Burn It To The Ground

    Left out some of the more 'obvious' well known ones, but you'll probably find your way to a bunch of them through some of the recommendations here tbh.
