Do gay guys just rarely or never get into Rock music?

    I used to love rock from the 80's and 90's, still have old CD's I listen to. Now a days I just listen to the 101.9 the Mix in Chicago...how boring I've become icon_redface.gif

    No, all gay guys listen to exactly the same thing. It's in the contract.

    Actually, classical here - play the viola (badly - but I love it).

    Don't worry about being "boring". Its better to settle down by will, than it is to be forced to by life. It helps to keep a lil bit of your younger edge with you in your music, and dip into that once in a while, and new stuff of the same genre. icon_wink.gif

    I love all music with very few exceptions. Been to Glastonbury, the reading festival, download and sonisphere and more gigs than I can count. I love live music but especially love rock, metal, punk and ska. Do like pop, dance etc 2 but prefer rock and metal .

    I love that entire 30 Seconds to Mars album. But the boyfriend makes fun every time I play it because of all the overwrought choirs.

    I was raised on rock music, well oldies rock, and I'll just do this now: I love paramore, all time low, marinias trench, linkin park, florence and the machine, elvis presley, the beatles... rock, even though it's mostly alternative rock, has a big piece of my heart.

    I know. I'm a sucker for rock songs with children's choirs.

    I am a fool for all eras of rock & metal and their sub-genres; mainstream, classic, underground or experimental. I am not one for putting myself, or others in a box. Music is one of the true freedoms; though our minds sometimes are not.

    They don't if you go by the lobby crowd I recently saw at "Rock of Ages" at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Despite a lot of gay plot lines that show drew the straightest Broadway musical crowd I've ever seen. You know how during show intermissions you can pick up a certain vibe? None there, except for this - since you can take photos in the lobby I snapped evidence that the straights have a vastly different take on Helen Hayes than we do.

    It probably has more to do with clubs only playing dance music. For a lot of guys that is their main musical exposure and they associate it with dancing and having a good time.

    I love rock, metal, prog etc but that might have had as much to do with growing up when much music actually played music videos and being exposed to a variety of music when the musical culture scene was still as much about the music as anything else.

    I like to hear a live rhythm section, not something created by a computer.

    Also, Autotune is the devil.

    Amen to that man. Autotune = The death of talent. We are in a talent armageddon right now. And the antichrist (autotune) is winning.

    Do you notice how in every decade there was a performer with awe inspiring talent. Someone who knew how to play and instrumrent and or sing, not just well but great to a point where you wondered "how the fuck do they do that?", "what planet are they from?" like jimi hendrix, ray charles, stevie wonder, michael jackson, prince, stevie ray vaughn, john frusciante, slash. we have not had that in the last 15 year or so. i mean artists today are good, even great, but not jaw dropping awe inspiring. just a thought

    Rock can be great. I did a heavy metal Rock cruise from Stockholm, Sweden to Turku, Finland. One of the very best experiences of my life.

    Classic rock is the ONLY thing I listen to.. the crap that they pass for music today is just that, most of the time.

    no its just the people you hang out with

    there are plenty of gay guys who love rock but for some reason the stereotype is driven home early to young gays that they have to listen to a certain type of music. Perhaps the feminine ones are more in touch with pop, I dont know, every club is all about dance music
