    OK, time to own up, what music do you hate to admit that you love. What music do you secretly listen to that you would never admit to any of your "musical" friends? We're talking music that would destroy your "cred"... Go ahead, not everything you listen to is 100% critic-approved, own up...

    Now, since I posed the question, I'll go first: everytime that I hear P!nk's Get This Party Started, I crank it on the car audio... There, I said it, now all y'all can own too:D
  2. I like that Britney Spears song, "Boys." Don't know why...

    I don't feel guilty about any of the music I listen to (which is a hugely diverse chunk of what's out there), especially when talking to my musician friends... they are the ones that are most likely to "get" why I would like someone like Barry Manilow.

    Seriously man... one part of my CD collection (roughly 800 discs as of right now) goes something like 'Led Zeppelin', 'Manilow, Barry', 'Massacre' <-- really bad death metal band, 'Megadeth'...

    you might want to reconsider some guilt
    for the Manilow stuff.
    Just kidding.

    Nelly Furtado rocks my world. "I'm like a Bird" is cool. She was actually my desktop wallpaper for about 6 months.

    Pink is definatley on the top of my list. She just seems so intelligent in interviews, like she wants to break out of the pop stuff she does, but yet she stays there for various reasons.

    I also like Creed. Still don't understand why they are so hated. (besides Scott Stapp and Mike Tremonti's rock star attititudes)
  16. Incubus (I didn't feel guilty about them until they released "Wish You Were Here"...god damn that song!)
    Living Colour (1980's forever! :D)
    Tool (great band, but there fans give them a bad name)

    *shields himself from the barrage of incomping stompboxes*

    also i like Korns new single.. dont know what its called but it s just wierd and gets my head banging
  18. Im not embarressed about anything I listen to, which is basically everything except rap, techno, and the stuff on mtv that all sounds the same. I listen to stuff ranging from stevie wonder to marilyn manson to the beatles to alice cooper to jaco etc...
    I would consider myself "different" anyways (not different like all the people try to be different and are really all the same) so when people say I'm weird because i listen to so many types of not popular music and it doesnt include Linkin Park or Nickelback, it doesnt bother me, so I have no reason to be "ashamed" of what I like.
