Ive always enjoyed awkward music my whole life. When i was in 9th grade i really got into 60's music and the whole hippie counter culture. Now im more into things such as lamb of god, chiodos and local bands and stuff. But the doors will always be my favorite band of all time.

I'm not sure the "branch out" applies to me, but read on, perhaps it does.I bought my first album, the Beatles' "Let It Be," forty years ago. By 1969 my cousin from California introduced another cousin and me to one of the first of the Metal bands, Black Sabbath. In that year I also became interested in proto-Metal band Led Zeppelin. Today, after decades of fanship in other genres, including Classical, Country, and Jazz, I've never abandoned Metal, and my son's band Blasphemous Creation (see my blog) might even tell you I'm their greatest fan.In the 80s I practically raised my sons (and later my daughter) on political rap, greats like Public Enemy, NWA, KRS-One. Then came the great Rap Metal crossovers Run DMC/Aerosmith, Public Enemy/Anthrax, and last but by no means least, Ice T and Bodycount.Thanks for the post, and Happy New Year, Sullen!Sam

I suppose "branching out" doesn't apply to me personally but growing up, I listened to everything from country to rap to R&B. I had my stages with all these genres.And then one day, I listened to my brother blast Slipknot on his stereo and I was hooked.Since then, heavy metal has taken a backseat to bands like Amber Pacific, The Ataris and Bayside.

My friends got me into it! They suggested I should go to a Aussie Hardcore concert so I did.All of it started from there, but my mother always said respect & listen to all genres of music.I don't really get teased about it, but I get stared at what I wear.
