Do you tend to listen to new music, or do you stick to the music of your adolescence/young adulthood? (Young adults - just make a prediction)

I enjoy listening to the music I know and love, but I also like discovering bands that are new and new to me.

Old crap mostly. We're talking 50s & 60s. I only learn to appreciate newer stuff when someone shoves it in my face, like my daughter (80s) or one of my Y aerobics instructors (2000s). Left to my own devices, I revert to Dylan, Seeger, etc.

Yeah, Lithium is my go-to station, too.

I didn't listen to the radio for a while because I am a fan of *new* music, but they just overplay the crap out if it. I have a lot of "oldies" on my iTunes and usually go to it once the radio has played "The Best Day of My Life" for the 6th time..

Most of the music I listen to actually comes from before I was born.

I'd say a little bit of both.

Both, 70s/80s for sentimental reasons but I keep up with the times and pick some contemporary songs, one of my favorites is "get lucky", but isn't that sooo 2013 ;)

Mostly relatively new stuff, but some oldies too. And a lot of new stuff done by old people. Neil Young is still a favorite. I heard Crimson and Clover on Orphan Black today - I'd forgotten how good it was.

When I was younger (in the late '90s / early '00s), I'd listen to Buddy Holly-era oldies, and some classic rock, which back then meant '60s and '70s. Now, I mainly listen to '90s grunge.

I usually listen to a lot of newer stuff, but lately I've been tuning into a Sirius station that plays mainly early 90s Grunge and Alternative. Brings back a lot of memories, but I don't want to be that guy!

i go back and forth between the two, usually dependent on the quality of the local radio station.

Two observations first:
1) the fact you're asking for bands you haven't heard of probably means this is going to be difficult.
2) this would have been much easier 10 years ago as I haven't a clue what's popular in *any* circle these days.

But let's go with a couple of my recent favorites - Ultraista and Savages.

How about you? What are two bands I haven't heard that I must do?

Highly! Really. Let me straighten out my skirt, square my shoulders and thrust out my breasts just a little.

A combination. I actually didn't like a whole lot of music for my age in HS. I like Classic Rock and alot of the new stuff they're making with a folk/blues rock vibe is very cool.

t.A.T. u. and Serebro

nothing serious there, just some real fun with video and music. More later.

Kick out your two fav bands that you are certain I have never heard. Let's c if the meet n greet was mutually beneficial.

I preferred "oldies" even when I was young, but I like a lot of new music too. Have extremely eclectic tastes.

My... well if we're being all proper-like, let me just say it's an absolute pleasure to be making your acquaintance. :)

More old than new, but I still listen to some newer stuff.
