    I figure it'd be intresting to get an idea of who we all listen to...you can mention genre,Artist,Song w/e ya preference

    Me i play a lot of Alternative music....Rock, Electronica,Country,Pop,Metal Etc...not as big on hip-hop or rap anymore as today's artists are mediocre to me...but i still play some of my fav's frm the old school and some more recent Artists..i was raised on jazz n funk...i'll play virtually anything =P

    Fav Artists in no order or categorization of genre Inc Daft Punk,Lupe Fiasco,Kanye West,Rascal Flatts,Mos Def,Green Day,Mr Hudson,Switchfoot,Norman Brown among others


    Please do share im curious as to who you all listen too
