I hate when people ask me what kind of music I listen to.
I know! I'm a jerk.
I think it just feels like such a personal question to me. And I can never seem to come up with suitable answers to personal questions on the spot.
Also, I don't even really know what kind of music I like. I can name specific bands or artists, or albums, or songs. Even then - I may like one album from a certain band, but think the rest of their work stinks. So even calling myself a fan of that band wouldn't be true.
But narrowing it down to one genre? Can't do it.
Maybe I'm just over-analysing things.
Anyway, when I'm feeling particularly pressed, I'll just spout off the standard line that's featured on so many Facebook profiles:
