    Country/western forever, but the more traditional songs of Merle Haggard, George Jones and Conway Twitty. I'm not crazy about Willie Nelson's voice but some of his songs were great. I'm not going to say who is my favorite. Every time I do, they die. I liked Hank Williams (Sr., that is). He died. I was crazy about Jim Reeves. He died. Then came Marty Robbins and John Denver. I'm beginning to think I'm a jinx.

      Music

      OK, I am a true blue Rock and Roll Grandpa. I still listen to the same Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, etc.etc. tunes I listened to when I was a teenager. I friend of mine decided I needed to move into the oo s or 2000s or whatever the he!! we are calling them so he dropped by the house last night and laid a "LinKin Park" CD on me. (He's a 22 year old graveyard stud, officer of the month last month. He used to be one of my Explorers so, of course, I taught him everything he knows) Listened to it tonight and I'm hooked. A couple songs in the middle were a little too much like rap crap for me to get through but the rest of it kicks ***. I'm thinking I'm going to have to start rolling up on calls listening to Extreme 107.5. (that is if I had a tuner wired into my motor, which I don't, that would be against policy, and we know none of us here at Officer.Com ever push policy, but guys talk, you hear things, I've heard some guys do that sort of thing, but not me) 107.5 is the radio station here in town that every 12 year old with a skateboard and baggy pants tied around his hips owns a years supply (2) of their t-shirts with the logo printed on it. I think I'm on to a new persona here. Wonder if I could get sagging written into the uniform appearence policy?

        While some of todays sounds are ok to listen to and have a good beat I will still stick pretty much to my classic rock. I guess I am old fashioned in that perspective. Every new band I have listened to has at least one good song.

          I shocked some teenagers a while back while taking a vehicle burglary call from them. One of them had their car CD player ripped off and was trying to remember what CD was in it. All he could remember was that the group was Disturbed. He couldn't remember the name of the album. He was shocked when I told him it likely "The Sickness" since that was Disturbed current album. For those not in the know Disturbed is a new group that is a hybrid of heavy metal and rap.

            I used to absolutely love that song "stupified". I also liked the theme song for Stone Cold Steve Austin that they recorded. That song kicked arse!

              We got a new station last year, O-Rock 105.9(Orlando). I really didn't like it at first, but then their music got me hooked. Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Beasties(old and new), Disturbed, POD, Puddle of Mud, and throughout the day they play rave and club music.

              Of course, I'm still into my classic rock, metal and hard rock. KISS is still the rulers of the rock kingdom!!!

                Been a Disturbed fan for awhile now, and I got to say I dont see the rap connection, at least not on "The Sickness", maybe on a past album, if they even have a past album?

                I am probably gonna catch some flack for this but my all-time favorite metal band has to Metallica. They make some real kick *** music, even if they are greedy bastards!

                  i'm not too impressed with most of today's bands. if you're lucky they MIGHT have one good tune and eventually turn into "one hit wonders" never to be heard of again. the thing i don't like is the fact that so many bands sound alike. you can take about 10 songs from 10 different bands, put them on one album, and choose the name of any of those bands and you would be none the wiser. but i do like some of Mudvayne's stuff, except there's about 10 other bands that sound like them now. i can do without the rap-crap gangbanger music. no talent, no music, no nothing....drum loops,
                  non-sensical rhyming, and sampling of someone elses hits to rap around. how original!! i'm sill partial to classic rock. (uhh, do you think rap will be the mainstay in classic rock in 20 year???? uhh....NO!!). in the same respect i love big band j*** and classical. some country is ok. and i totally love britney spears...oh wait, i heard that she sings too!!
                  I'll post, You argue.

                    You want a fantastic contemporary band?

                    Hooverphonic. I have no clue what their genre is, but it's beautiful stuff.

                    As for me, I listen to pretty much everything, though, N'sync and Britney Spears are notably absent...

                      SpecOps, Metallica kicks major arse! I got to see them in concert 3 times last year and they were just, well, awesome! They put on a great show w/ lots of loud music and awesome pyrotechnics. Also, never realized how buff James was until I saw him on stage.

                        I have an eclectic taste in music.. I like most everything BUT rap.. I mostly listen to classic rock and alternative indie bands.. but lateley I've been listening to some new world type music that is pretty cool. I also love opera, classical and soundtracks. Oh, and anything by Andrew Lloyd Webber

                          Since I've downloaded Morpheus(successor to Napster), my musical tastes have diversified again. I'm still into my rock(Metallica, Kid Rock, KISS), but I've got classical, Zydeco, blues, bluegrass, country(really appreciating Toby Keith, have like Lonestar since they came out, but I love Willie Nelson)and comedy bits. Somehow or another I discovered Andrea Bocelli. I've never been into opera, much less male tenors, but his stuff is so good!

                          My overwhelming choice for any type of situation is Buffett, though. Man, his music makes me feel good, makes me relax, makes me think. Pink Floyd is a close second. Oh, and Grateful Dead is up there, too.

                          In my office, I've got Buffett's Floridays, Songs you KNow by Heart and Coconut Telegraph, and the Dead's Skeletons From the Closet for those hectic days when I need a little escape. Close the door, bury myself in paperwork, and turn on the tunes.

                            Well, I will listen to anything from Piano Concertos to Ozzy to Garth Brooks to Jimi Hendrix, but I refuse to listen to Rap which advocates the shooting of COPS and Marilyn Manson which advocates the shooting of everyone! I listen to whatever helps me relax, And yes I am a constant channel surfer in the car! I suppose whatever makes you happy is the right kind of music

                              well i must say, i found one of my favorite topics. i work the graveyard shift in a small town. the usual tunes that i jam to are old school type rap, dance/rave music and the classic rock. (wow, what a combo!)
                              i also like to keep current with the pop stuff as well. but there is nothing that will keep my active like a good bass beat or a screaming guitar.
