So over the past few years as I've moved further and further away from the overly corporate music stations, my tastes in music have been getting more ecliptic and extreme. I've gotten heavily into Grind bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Anal c**t and also more into the extreme metal bands like Converge and Pig Destroyer. Now wether or not you consider this stuff music is besides the point Ive already been in endless debates with people on this subject and I don't want to hear it. I just want to know what other bizarre things people listen too out there.

My range in musical taste is kind of weird.  One second I could be listening to death metal and the next cheesy R&B from the 90s and the next classical.  People are sometimes shocked when I tell them I like some rap like NWA, Lil Jon, etc.

The Residents are probably as weird as my tastes get.

Most of what I listen to would probably be considered weird by many on this board--I tend to listen to more mellow stuff (Bing Crosby, Andrews Sisters, Manilow, etc.), as well as cornball classics like Spike Jones. I even like show tunes and genuinely enjoy Pat Boone's In a Metal Mood. But for just oddball, I'll throw this into the ring:

I can play Poison one minute, Slayer the next. Dark Angel one minute, Stryper the next.

I listen to heavy metal 99% of the time, but I do own albums by Phil Collins, Jennifer Rush and The Pointer Sisters.
I'm also a massive Stevie Nicks fan. Oh an I own the "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack too.  Smile

While most of the music I listen to is Rock/Alternative...I have a strange affinity for Gregorian chants.  I just love the beautiful otherwordly quality they have to them.

And sometimes t two worlds meet.  For your listening pleasure, here is Gregorigan monks doing a cover of a Duran Duran song.

While I don't listen to trash metal or death metal, there is one band if you haven't heard them, you should.

Hank Williams III. That's right, the grandson of Hank Williams, and son of Hank Jr. He does his country stuff to pay the bills, but his metal band is AMAZING. It's called ASSJACK. The first time I saw them was at CBGB's and they did their country set, then Hank said "I'll give all you country fans twenty minutes to clear out and we're gonna do our Assjack set. He then went on to play thrash music with acoustic guitar, stand-up bass, fiddle and drums. Most incredible heavy set I've ever heard.

If you like early metal, check out The Godz. They were great, but after one or two albums sunk into oblivion. Back in 77 or 78 it was a heavenly night when The Godz, Judas Priest and Angel played the Palladium. Excellent show.

Weirdest music I listen to?  Will you all settle for the most mind wrapping song I like?

Be warned!  Once you hear this song, it'll never leave you!  It's so catchy!!  Also, make sure the volume is turned down, this is one loud song.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

You asked the wrong (right?) guy.  99% of the stuff I listen to no one's ever heard of.  Most people can scroll through dozens of artist names on my mp3 player before they see something they recognize.  More than one woman has decided not to go out with me twice after being frightened by the unfamiliar names in my music collection.

Tom Waits would be considered pretty weird to most folks, but he's about the most mainstream/poppiest singer I listen to consistently. 

I listen to a lot of classical and jazz, from all eras.  Lots of atonal/dissonant stuff in both genres.  Most people consider that stuff weird and abrasive.  I'm convinced I'm the only one who's bought albums by certain contemporary classical composers like Daniel Biro other than their students.  1920s jazz, folk and blues vintage recordings (in beautiful scratchy mono). Contemporary African folk music (Afrobeat too, but I prefer the folkier stuff).  Latin jazz.  Bluegrass.  Smithsonian Folkways field recordings.  "Outsider" recordings (music composed and played by the mentally ill, like William Shatner's "The Transformed Man" Wink). String quartet arrangements of electronica compositions.  Czech rock/blues with English lyrics that sound like they came out of Babelfish.  And so on.

I'm attracted to the same things in music that I am in movies: outrageous creativity, whether it's "good" or "bad".  Not interested in much that's mainstream.

Currently I'm listening to "Boris with Merzbow", a noisy collaboration between the experimental Japanese metal group and the "noise" artist.

Might as well throw in George Anthiel's 1924 avant-garde composition "Ballet Mecanique", since I just saw a cool documentary on it:

Anything off of the Mr. Bungle album "Disco Volante" is staggeringly weird.


Hell, even their 1st self titled album
 
is extremely weird as well.

For people who don't know Mr. Bungle was former Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton's original band that he was in prior to joining FNM in the last 80's.  He used the clout with Warner Bros. form the huge success that FNM had with their The Real Thing album to get Mr. Bungle signed.
They've only released 3 albums to date and their 3rd album California was a complete left turn with how listenable and streamlined  it was in comparison.

Here's some of their stuff:
"PLATYPUS"

"BACKSTROKIN'"

I generally listen to vintage Pop music, but it's mostly music that was not popular... I look for artists that sold poorly in their day like CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS, BIG STAR, JOBRIATH...
This very accessible clip is under 3 minutes:

I also like Hard Bop and Cool School Jazz, some of which gets challenging, like THELONIOUS MONK (about 4 minutes):

I also like non-singers singing, like FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS

Besides my Punk/Hardcore/D-beat/Crust/Anarco sometimes Grind I listen too like Amebix, The Ex, Resistant Culture, Extreme Noise Terror, Cro-Mags, Germ Attack,Attak, p**sChrist,Cop On Fire,Breakdown

I do listen to some weird stuff that might not match like Kool and The Gang ,Rick James, Body Count,Joan Jett and my new favorites The Detroit Cobras.

For just really werid stuff I like the old No Wave stuff like Jesus and Mary Chain or 8 Eyed Spy and just stuff that hard to nail down like Dresden Dolls, Mika Miko and Stnnng.

Little to much name dropping but I just love music and wanted to share  Cheers
