Call it an identity crisis, if you will. But I'm born and raised on metal (80's hair metal as a young child, then the 90's saga crap, late 90's metal rebirth, etc) but am now finding myself interested in the utmost bizarre music. And I've never thought I'd like it.

Maybe it's a change of pace, or maybe it's a state of being. Perhaps just trying new and exciting things? I don't know. But I can't get enough!

Is this happening to you, too? Or has it?

I denounced metal 26 years ago after I saw 120 minutes with JJ Jackson on MTV. I never came back. Good luck in your search. Hopefully you come to the same conclusion I did.

Life is too short to listen to only one kind of music. I listen to just about everything, minus Gangsta Rap and Contemporary Christian.

Life is too short to listen that crap too.

I grew up with 80s's metal (hair bands, thrash, classic, etc), and continued it in the 90s. But ever since the 2000s, I haven't really found anything new I like. I find myself listening to the older stuff, with an occasional new band I can tolerate.

So I did a 180 and got more into Classic and Outlaw country. Hank (Sr, Jr, and III), Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, etc. If you told me in 1987 that I'd be listening to country music in 20 yrs, I'd say your're crazy! Yet, I did! That, and I got more into the classic rock stuff.

I think it means you have a variety of tastes in music, not that you're having an identity crisis. (Because if you're having one, I am too. I love metal but spent the weekend listening to Erasure while cleaning the house.)

My Dad was a firm believer in the phrase "If it ain't country, it ain't music!" My mom had been a jazz and big band fan growing up.

I've been buying music for nearly a half century (Yep, I'm ancient!) I went full bore from the 50's rockers to the British Invasion groups in 1964, to the psych and garage band sound in 1968, to the British progressive groups in 1970. When Disco hit the scene my music buying habits hit a stop sign for a while. And for years afterwords I got involved with the music my parents liked- country, bluegrass, and jazz.

Fast forward to the mid 80's. Got back into it again, but not at the scale I was at before (buy 75 to 80 new release lp's a year.)

Nothing wrong with a change of pace regarding musical taste. Nothing! These days I still buy lots of rock though, over the last several years I've bought new releases by My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Modest Mouse, Matchbox 20, Jayhawks, and more.

Someone out there said that variety is the spice of life. Might have been the same guy who was asked once what the best type of music there was and he replied, "The best? That's good music! The worst? That's bad music!" I believe that individual to be Louis Armstrong.

LOL.

I am a music junkie. I love it all for different reasons. There is so many different types of metal out there too beyond that type you grew up on. Definitely check those out too.

My collection is very mixed and I wouldn't have it any other way.
