I don't like a lot of metal groups today because they all seem the same and it drives me up the wall. Rock is such a diverse genre of music. I can list about almost all my favorite bands and they will all be the rock genre. Anyway I personally like Type O Negative, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi, Motely Crue, Dir en Grey, X Japan, and others. I don't listen to those awfull bands like Slip Knot and Mushroom Head and bands like that. I hate them with a passion!
