Aside from drum and piano lessons, I really started getting into music when I was like 7 or 8. It started w/ 80's metal like queensryche, poison, warrant, guns n roses etc cause that's what my uncles listened to but was also way into synth pop like tears for fears, OMD, Duran Duran cause I thought synthesizer technology was so cool.
Then grunge came around and I got really into Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgraden, Mudhoney. Also listened to lots of gangsta rap in middle school like MC Eiht and Onyx and shit....
Started getting into some heavier shit like Pantera, Slayer, Metallica after Judgement Night Soundtrack, Enter Sandman video, original Cemetary Gates video, as well as lots of industrial and older gothy starting with Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy and Bauhaus and Joy Division but getting into really obscure shit like Kevorkian Death Cycle (that was my screen name for like 10 years).
First half of high school I listened to pretty much only straight up death/black metal and industrial. Got an Integrity CD sometime in late 10th grade and saw Dysphoria play at a show around the same time and started getting into hardcore.
I'm always into hearing new shit but the classics are timeless to me like NIN, Joy Division, The Cure, Deftones, Tool, Pantera, and the like.
I still listen to pretty much everything aside from as much gangsta rap, not as much 80's metal, and no slayer.
