Oh God. Lemme think..

5-8 years: My sisters blue/spice girls/Now that's what I call music/ Bewitched cds, you know, typical late 90s to early 2000s. :teehee: Oh, and I always remember playing with my toys along with Tina Turna.

8-12: Started listening to the T-Rex/ Bob Dylan/ David Bowie/ Johnny Cash/ Bryan Adams/ U2/ Journey/Travis Cds that were hanging around the house and in the car. Along with some Enrique Eglasias, Sugar Babes, etc. And er..Avril Lavigne :rolleyes:

12-14: Mainly charts stuff, along with some of the bands mentioned above

15-16: A short love affair with indie and some emo.

17: Still rocking some of the above. I was a late bloomer with The Killers, Placebo and Muse which is absolutely gutting. I now also love Kate Bush, Depeche Mode, MGMT, The Cure, Bright Eyes, Sonic Youth, Taylor Swift :ninja: Bruce Springsteen, Patrick Wolf, Sigur Ros, Pixies, Lou Reed, Broken Social Scene.

And Shakira has been a constant throughout my life.

It goes:
5-8= classical/baroque
8-13= classic rock (the Beatles, ELO, Buffalo Springfield- good to make the transition with!). I was really into the 60s, they were one of my Aspie obsessions.
13-now= still lots of classic rock, but some teenagery bands like Nirvana and lots of heavy metal (proper stuff though)
Now= solely good old classics. Some classical. And I love Kate Bush.

I've always liked dance, pop and rap/hip-hop music. BTW, it has to be said that Britney Spears is my god. I mean it, my walls are plastered with her posters and I have everything she has ever released. I love her, love her music, he style, her persona. She is my everything.

There was a time when I pretended to like 'goth' music so that I would get invited places lmao.

When I was a little nipper, I remember listening to Five (that dreadful boyband). I watched Firestarter by The Prodigy too and although they were quite scary at the time I really liked them. I also liked a few 80s songs my dad had on this compilation CD he had when I went to his.

As I got a bit older (Young teen) I liked Green Day, Blink 182 and all those pop punky things, all of these introduced to me by my brother. Also add to that Nirvana. (Also my sister used to play loads of trance and other general club music which I never admitted I liked but I did )

When I was 13-15 I guess I was a little pissed at life (and my stepdad) so I started getting into Metal, most genre's and also Drum & Bass

By 16 my stepdad had finally left the house and I've now started getting into a ton of new music. My music now consists of most genre's (and is also generally happier)

Last.fm in sig because I cba going through all I listen to.

It's changed a lot from when I was a kid! It used to be S Club/Britney/Spice Girls when I was 8 or whatever age, I can't remember. And the usual Backstreet Boys, Five, Vengaboys stuff that everyone in my class liked and sang every day.

I had a phase of Eminem when I was feeling p***ed off at the world, that must have been about age 14...

I still do like some Evanescence songs. When I worked in a shop a few years ago, I basically liked whatever was in the charts for that months lol It was blaring out 5 times a day for the same song so they used to get stuck in my head!

Then I started liking Broadway/musical songs like Les Mis/Chicago/Cats. Still do, those and classical types like Katherine Jenkins/Hayley Westenra/Natasha Marsh. Of course, a bit of comedy singing like Stephen Lynch and Avenue Q is always good as well!

Usual kiddy bandsartists when I was little S club 7 ftw
I remember I liked busted, and then it was embarrassing to like them so I stopped listening to them...and now they're on my ipod
I'm a couple of years behind everyone music taste I think - we didn't get freeview until I was 15, and internet last year (when I was 17) so I hadn't been able to discover as much new music and grow out of them as much as everyone else. The music I listened to was a lot more constant - I didn't have any music channels or charts and ofc no internet so I only really found new stuff via my friends or kerrang magazine...or sometimes pot luck (I discovered panic! when I was ill and mum put the radio on for me - I write sins was paying and I've been hooked ever since )

Although I do notice a change in my music tastes - the emoish stuff gets listened to a lot less. I'll think: "yeah, this is a good song, but I'm not in the mood to listen right now, so I'll end up skipping fair amount of fall out boy/evanescence/linkin park/MCR/youmeatsix/boyslikegirls(don't even know why I have B;G still on my ipod, I listen to a song of theirs like once every 2 months ahahah) and instead I'll listen to some enter shikari or weezer, or stuff I've recently downloaded or bought but then this could be because it's new and more novel - I've been listening to my old stuff for a LONG TIME and had a rather limited playlist so perhaps my ears just want a change?
Since my second year of college I also listen to a lot of smaller, unsigned bands and am all the better for it

when I was really young I used to love tchaikovsky.

6-9 i loved stevie wonder, the beatles. Thats all I listened too haha!

10-15 fell into the trap of greenday/blink 182 and all that sort of stuff. not great. although guns n roses/nirvana did make appearances so it wasnt all bad.

by the time I hit 16 i began to listen to rammstein, as well as a few more avant garde bands like the human league, and this kickstarted an obsession with 80s synthpop. By this point I was also delving into reggae, jazz amongst other things.

Approaching 18 and my music taste is hugely diverse. Kate Bush and the Smiths have a huge place in my heart right now

Interesting thread...

2-7 roughly: What my parents listened to - Queen, Abba, Jean Michel Jarre, The Carpenters, Mammas and Papas, Robson and Jerome, David Bowie. Still listen to most of that..

7-11: Spice Girls, S Club 7, Boyzone, Westlife, Steps, Britney Spears... I do remember buying a compilation CD purely because it had "Lolly - Viva La Radio" on it...!

11-13: Everything on the top 40. That and I had a friend who was very into Nirvana, we used to sit in her room playing with Fashion Polly listening to the likes of Nirvana and Guns'n'Roses!! She also introduced me to Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Sum 41 - at the time it was what everyone was listening to and it seemed the cool thing to do.

13-18: Went through a sad phase of dance and squeaky music (think DJ Rankin and Clubland)... tainted with a love of My Chemical Romance and Evanescence... that and music like Taking Back Sunday, The Academy Is, Hello Goodbye... Was more to fit in with everyone else than anything! Fell for Oasis and Blur too. Stuff like The Killers, Coldplay too...

18 +: Most 60s/70s/80s music (especially synth pop at the minute), Palmoa Faith, Ellie Goulding, Mark Ronson, Adele, Radiohead, U2... Discovered The Smiths in my first year of Uni too

0-11 Spice Girls, Westlife, general cheesy pop, bitta R&B (Ashanti :ahee:)
11-12 Rap. All I listened to was 2Pac, Eminem and 50 Cent. And I was obsessed with N*E*R*D. Oh god.
12-13 The emo phase. Thankfully My Chemical Romance brought out the Black Parade and I realised that I didn't like it anymore
13-15 Discos were the highlight of my life so I listened to cheesy dance- Cascada, DJ Boonie, anything with the chipmunk voice
15 The Kooks, Pigeon Detectives, Kings of Leon, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys. What I thought was indie basically.
16-now My last.fm tells me it's alternative and electronic, but there's loads of random stuff that doesn't fall into that category. The range of artists that I listen to now is huge compared to what it used to be

Little Kid-Whatever my mum put on,usually guns n roses or Fleetwood Mac.Bit of ABBA or T-Rex occasionally too.

When I was in primary school,all the other girls liked Britney spears etc..so I tried to and danced along to a few songs by her,but not really into it.

early high school(11-14) I was into heavy metal and finnish black metal etc...industrial german you name it.

senior high school(5th-6th year current) I still like rock/metal but eased off a bit and opened up to other music,so now indie/rock and a few pendelum thrown in.

Never really liked rap that much tbh.

I used to care what people thought of my music taste.

Now I don't. That's the big difference.

Been through so many musical evolutions I can't even trace it properly. My taste has been all over the place, to point where I would probably say there are now very genres I haven't tried listening to (although I still come across new "sub-genres" of music fairly frequently).

Age 8-10: general chart/pop music, britpop -> Destiny's Child, Oasis
Age 11-12: nu-metal, pop punk etc. -> Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Sum 41, Blink 182, Alkaline Trio
Age 13-14: "indie", non-contemporary music -> The Strokes, The Libertines, Razor****e, The Kooks, The Beatles, Joy Division
Age 15-17: started actually looking for music more away from the mainstream. Got into the likes of Pavement, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, Animal Collective etc. in a big way as well as hardcore bands like Minor Threat and Bad Brains.
Age 18-20: by this point I'd expanded my listening to loads of different genres: post-rock (e.g. Mogwai), 90's screamo/emo (e.g. Saetia, Orchid), electronic (e.g. Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada), psychedelic rock (e.g. Bardo Pond), drone (e.g. Earth), math rock (e.g. Hella), jazz (e.g. Miles Davis), grindcore (e.g. Nasum), dubstep (e.g. Burial), world music (e.g. anything produced by the Sublime Frequencies label), noise (e.g. Masonna, Merzbow), motown (e.g. Supremes) and loads of other stuff.
Age 20-current: more recently I've just continued along the same path, I doubt my current music taste will shift dramatically again, I just appear to be accumulating more music and a wider scope of music that I listen to. Found myself spending more time listening to tropicalia (Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, Tom Ze) and chillwave (Washed Out, Neon Indian) recently.

Under 10 - motown, 60s pop, Tina Turner, folk (Steeleye Span), Pink Floyd, Spice Girls and East 17 (trying to 'fit in').

Tina Turner - 1984

The Turtles - Happy Together

Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond

11-13 - Bruce Springsteen, Neil Diamond, more 60s pop (less "Summer in the City" and more "Good Morning Vietnam"), some chart stuff (Robbie Williams, Britney Spears, Nickleback, etc).

Bruce Springsteen - The River

Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit

Neil Diamond - I am . . I said

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Walk on the Water

14-15 - Got back into Pink Floyd and started listening to Muse. Was ridiculed by my peers because Pink Floyd is apparently "saddo music". Also told by my favourite teacher that I was a freak for liking Neil Diamond. Also loved some of the more popular 'dance' tracks, like stuff by Scooter and Darrude.

Pink Floyd - Sorrow

Muse - Time Is Running Out

Darrude - Sandstorm

15-17 - First major boyfriend introduced me to Drum n Bass and house/hardhouse. I liked some of it but had to pretend I liked the genres more than I did. Came away with a love for Pendulum. Was forbidden from listening to Muse - I think he even confiscated my CDs. Started a slightly 'underground' liking of The Darkness and The Rasmus, partly as a rebellion against my boyfriend.

Pendulum - Another Planet

The Rasmus - In The Shadows

18-19 - Got ditched by the boyfriend just before I turned 18. Rebelled with lots of Muse. Started listening to prog and 'indie' - Pure Reason Revolution, Mew, The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs. Was totally in love with one of my best friends who encouraged my prog habit. Discovered Fairport Convention, Morgan and the Hidden Hands (now The Romanovs) and The Scissor Sisters.

Pure Reason Revolution - The Twyncyn / Trembling Willows

Mew - 156

The Romanovs - The King

Fairport Convention - Crazy Man Michael

19 - Lots of Pink Floyd, some Muse, introduced to Faith No More by current boyfriend and tried to like them.

Muse - Map of the Problematique

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

20 - Ended my second major relationship and hooked up with my prog loving best friend. Muse was my "favourite band", as much as it makes sense to talk of my relationship to music in that way. Rediscovered Pendulum and discovered The Cranberries and The Dandy Warhols.

Muse - Cave

Pendulum - Slam

The Dandy Warhols - Heavenly

The Cranberries - Zombie

21 - Nine Inch Nails. Massive, on-going love affair with Trent Reznor. Taste starts getting heavier.

NIN - We're In This Together

Tool - Vicarious

22 - Getting into metal. Exploring industrial. Still in love with Muse, Pendulum, Pink Floyd, Mew, Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention, etc. Only thing I've really grown out of is the 'chart-ier' end of things, although I will always love Scissor Sisters.

Decoded Feedback - Phoenix

Ayreon - One Small Step

Nightwish - Last of the Wilds

Under 13:
All sorts of amazing underground bands like the Spice Girls, S Club 7 and all that stuff, along with some random bits of classical that my dad was into like Chopin, Beethoven, Ludovico Einaudi etc. Didn't really care too much about music at this point.

13-14:
Started taking a bit more of an interest in music, listening to all sorts of random bands from indie pop ones like Razorlight and Franz Ferdinand to older bands like Aerosmith and AC/DC. Was pretty much listening to anything I could get hold of here, knew nothing about music but was more interested than I was before.

15-16:
Discovered metal, was mainly into stuff like Deicide, Death, Morbid Angel and Emperor though I liked a few more popular extreme bands like Slayer and Slipknot too. Also was randomly listening to some emo type stuff like My Chemical Romance and Panic! at the Disco for some reason, though this gradually tailed off as I got more into extreme metal.

17-18:
Getting deeper and deeper into extreme metal, mainly digging bands like Suffocation, Deeds of Flesh, Devourment and Immolation amongst many others. Also discovered the Smiths and Joy Division when I was 17, which took up a significant amount of listening time. Started to become more interested in hip hop (mainly UK artists like Roots Manuva and Skinnyman, though a few US ones like Nas and NWA) as well, along with a bit of drum and bass and the beginning of an obsession with dubstep artists like Burial, Skream and Digital Mystikz and a bit of grime like Dizzee Rascal and Wiley.

19-20:
Now very much into dubstep and grime, as well as other electronic music like drum'n'bass and UK Garage, and a lot of hip-hop. Don't listen to metal as much these days apart from some of the best bands I discovered like Brodequin, Suffocation and Disgorge. Still love the Smiths and Joy Division though.
