I grew up on Metallica, I saw them in 1997 and I've got my tickets for January when they come back to the land down under.

I love Hard Heavy Berzeerk Metal. None more berzeerk than Strapping Young Lad.

Bands I've seen play live:
Strapping Young Lad
Smashing Pumpkins (They sucked that night)
Fear Factory
(some other gay bands not worth mentioning)

I like softer stuff aswell like Pink Floyd, Dire Straits and others who poses real musical talent.

Mr. Bungle is cool, gotta love that weird stuff.

Anyways thats me.

My range of music taste is varied.. Not varied in other genres... But varied in the "rock" genre. Some of my favourite bands are -

Guns N Roses
Black Sabbath
Alice Cooper

Then I like a lot of american alternative rock bands (Funny though, as I live in the UK) Bands like -

Matchbox 20
Third Eye Blind
3 Doors Down
Eve 6
American Hi-Fi

I don't like a lot of 'new rock/metal' although there are exceptions -

The Darkness

Oh, also I like some other 'older' bands I don't know if anyone else likes here - Dire Straits, Status Quo, Queen, Pink Floyd and loads others.

Well there you have it... A short summary of my music taste

I like the sound of StationsCreation music taste... Lots of really good bands on that list.

I like soca, calypso, cadance, zouk, kompa, bouyon, jamback soca, bailable, reggae roots, dancehall, hip hop, gangsta rap, soul, r&b, some alt rock, salsa, merengue... That's about it...

The first eight genres I mentioned are from the caribbean... Salsa (Cuba) and merengue (Dominican Republic) also orginated in the caribbean. And those two have also gone mainstream.

I might as well mention the islands were these genres come from.

Soca & Calypso- Trinidad & Tobago, but played widly across all of the english speaking caribbean islands and every island has their own style. Personally I like the Soca more from the northern caribbean area. (St Maarten, U.S. & British Virgin Islands, St Eustatius, Dominica and Anguilla) Soca from my island (Aruba) is heavily influenced by these islands. Soca is also very popular in places such as Toronto and London. Steel Pan and Steel Bands originated with calypso.

Bands & Singers : The Mighty Sparrow, Arrow, David Rudder, Blue Boy, Swallow, Kitchener, Shadow, Crazy, Ronnie Macintosh, Winston Soso, Scrunter, Rupee, TC, Allison Hinds, Dextra, X-Tatic, Tall Pree, Hartatak, Jam Band, Better Band, Youthwaves, King Beau Beau, Byron Lee and the Dragonairies, King T-Mo, Mighty Greg, X- plosion band, Impact Band, Burning Flames, OSHA, Atlantik, Wck, Square One, Krosfyah, Climax (Aruba), Oreo (Aruba), Mac 10 (Aruba), Le Groove (Aruba), NBO (Aruba), Riddim Band (Aruba & The Netherlands) and others too numerous to mention.

Some soca websites:

Cadance (closely related to soca and zouk) - Mainly from the northern caribbean islands I just mentioned and also Trinidad &Tobago, Barbados, Grenada and St Vincent.

Bands: Rolling Tones, Burning Flames, Hartatak, Impact Band, Burning FlamesOnyan, Square One, Wck, Atlantik, Krosfyah, TC, Allison Hinds, Dextra, Kevin Lyttle, Super P, Le Groove (Aruba), MAc 10 (Aruba), Oreo (Aruba), Climax (Aruba), NBO (Aruba)
Zouk - Martinique, Guadeloupe, French St Martin, St Barts, St Kitts, France and strangely enough, the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of Africa (there it's sung in portuguese).
Very sweet and romantic songs.

Bands & Singers: Zouk Look, KAssav, Leila Chicot, Slai, Kaysha, Guy Bordey, Nichols, Tanya St Val, Ayenn etc...

Here is a zouk website:

Bailable (akak ritmo combina)- Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and the Netherlands.
(sung in papiamento, the main spoken language on the three islands). Close in rhytm to zouk, merengue, kompa and cadance... And like zouk, amazingly sweet and romantic to dance with a girl...Especially the slower songs.

Bands: Magic Sound, Orquesta Vibes, Orquesta Cache, GIO Fuertissimo, Doble R SSS, Rizam (now defunct), Tune, Orquesta Pegasaya, Orquesta Q-Sign, No Game, Sound & More (Aruba), Climax (Aruba), Claudius Phillips & Oreo (Aruba), Dream (Aruba), Touche (Aruba), Le Groove (Aruba), Mac 10 (Aruba), NBO (Aruba), Ryo (Aruba), Quasi (Aruba), Smooth (Aruba)

Here is a link to Arubian radio stations (all streaming media) where you can here this genre often (you won't understand what they're saying though) :


Reggae and Dancehall (closely tied to the Rastafari religion)- Jamaica (other islands often make their own style of dancehall). Reggae is the original older form, dancehall began from speeding up and mixing reggae.
Hip hop and r&b artists are often singing dancehall these days ( e.g. R Kelly, Busta Rhymes, Beyonce, etc...)

Bands & Singers: Bob Marley & The Wailers (includes Peter Tosh), Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers, Kymani Marley, Julian Marley & the other Marley children, Rita Marley (Bob's widow), Alpha Blondy, Steel Pulse, UB40, Morgan Heritage, Lucky Dube, Capleton, Red Rat, Shaggy, Beenie Man, Buju Banton, Cleopatra, Super Cat, Sean Paul, Yellow Man, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Wayne Wonder, Honeypot (Aruba), Basic One (Aruba), The Creators (Aruba), Time Bandits (Aruba), Double Impact (Aruba) (the website of the legend himself!!!)


Kompa (related to zouk)- Haiti.
Santana has a kompa song that was played on the last superbowl.

Bands: Zenglen, Tabou Kombo, Haitian Troubadours, Wyclef Jean (yeah the hip hop artist).


Jam Back soca - Northern caribbean Islands and Aruba.
Closely related to soca, but with a faster, skippier rhytm. During carnival time I've seen people (mostly young boys) get crazy with these types of songs (they forget where they were and they practically go in a trance and lose all touch with reality. Especially with these three songs, China Waya, Monkey Jam and Box down Satan). China Waya and Monkey Jam were made by a local rap group called Basic One. They have recently relocated to Holland. I know them personally.

Bands: WCK, X-Plosion Band, Rolling Tones, First Serenade Band, NBO (Aruba), Basic One (Aruba), Dushi Band (Aruba), Double Impact (formely half of Basic One, Aruba)
Bouyon - Dominica.
Very closely related to jamback soca, half English, half French. Sweet rhytm.

Bouyon bands are WCK, First Serenade Band.

Salsa - Cuba (originally), Puerto Rico, Miami, Dominican Republic, Aruba, Curacao, Venezuela, Colombia & rest of Latin Americaetc...
There even was a Japenese band that played flawless salsa years ago (I think it was "The New York connection")

Bands & Artists: Celia Cruz, Cuban All Stars, Tito Puente, Gloria Estefan, Santana, DLG, La India, Marc Anthony, J LO, Grupo Niche, Orquesta Guayacan, GIo fuertissimo, Doble R SSS, The New York connection, Ryo (Aruba), Oreo (Aruba), Solo Banda Show (Aruba), Climax (Aruba)

Merengue - Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Curcacao, Venezuela, Mexico & the rest of Latin America etc...

Bands & Artists: Juan Luis Guerra y su 440, Wilfrido Vargas, Fulanito, Sergio Vargas, Las Chicas del Can, Elvis Crespo, Olga Tanon, Thalia, GIo fuertissimo, Doble R SSS, Orquesta Vibes, Sound & More (Aruba), DREAM(Aruba), Ryo (Aruba), Quasi (Aruba), Climax (Aruba)

Only reggae, dancehall, salsa & merengue are mainstream so far...

Soca will be in the near future. And zouk is popular in France. It's sung mainly in French, sometimes in English (then they call it cadance) but there is a new subgenre growing: zouk/r&b...

The best reason to like these genres (especially soca, cadance, zouk, kompa and bailable and sometimes merengue) is that you can dance close with your lady, with her in your arms (and grind if you want)...
But I've seen couples dance these beautifully including myself.

Dancehall is mega grindin also...

Can't see myself doing that with heavy metal though...

And for those alternative rock lovers... Check out these three bands:

Green Lizard
Why George

Three excellent rock bands. All three for the majority of the musicians Arubian. They're becoming very popular in Europe. I know a few of them personally.

Mr. Bungle is cool, gotta love that weird stuff.

Indeed. And don't forget Fantomas(if you like Mr Bungle and have not heard Fantomas, you should). Tomahawn is also great. Mike Pattons vocabulary madness is highly appreciated, hehe.

Anal #(dunno what genre they are)

I would say Grindcore

Hehe, TheBandit795, you're even worse than me when it comes to talking about your taste in music. I usualy go on for hours when im talking about my favourite music. Nice to see.

Well, im going to keep it simple. And the only way I can do that is to tell you all my one absolute favourite genre. Black Metal.

As I have stated before, im into the first wave of Norwegian Black Metal that emerged with Darkthrone, Mayhem, Burzum and Immortal(r.i.p) in the early 90's, and of course all the great band that followed... both Norwegian and foreign.

Immortal(r.i.p) are basicly my nighbors and is one of my absolute favourite band, so my feelings are strong for them. Other favourites in the Black Metal genre are: Darkthrone, Burzum, Abruptum, Nargaroth, Leviathan, Mayhem, Satyricon, Emperor, Tke, Gorgoroth, Kvist, Isvind and Enslaved.

I love my music. And I hope to see real caribbean music become more popular instead of that westernized touristy sh!t in the media.

They think we're either feeling hot hot hot, or going to the kokomo or deeeoooing all day...

I pretty much like all music, but there are four kinds I just can get enough of. and those would be:

  • Rap
  • Blues
  • Funk
  • Jazz

I also like some heavy metal really well.

BTW...I love to downold underground eminem and I pretty much love anything produced by shady/aftermath
