Let's face it, there are plenty of genres for every 'generation' - rap, pop, girl bands and country are not
the only ones.
Most ppl from my gen cannot understand my addiction to Trance.... but heaven forbid if I point out the fact that they admit to liking Disco
M2M is their best album in terms of raw band talent - no more synths, it's real beats - and pretty good ones too....
But I have loved them since the first time I heard One Step Closer
when they were an 'undiscovered' band....

I would consider this generation more rap than anything else, but I don't really consider rap music.
I play trumpet in Wind Ensemble and Marching band (and a little jazz), so I do enjoy classical. I don't have any I listen to, but I enjoy playing it.
Math has never been easy for me. There are kids in my classes that breeze though it (like another of my friends) while I am sitting there saying "I still don't get last years stuff....". It gets frustrating. Especially when I can't meet my expectations, let alone my parents.
I am not sure if I would say this generation is more rap than anything - sure, Hip hop has made a lot of inbound roads into mainstream culture, but you have to remember - everything that was mainstream was, at one time, the alternative
...Rock and roll was alternative....metal was alternative...techno (and more its predecessors, both electronica and industrial) were alternative....
A friend of mine once joshed me for saying I liked alternative music, b/c she pointed out the very same point I just made - and sure enough, now alternative
is now a mainstream genre. Blink 182 is touring again. papa Roach is still around, other bands continue to make a go of it.
hell, Motley Crue was supposed to be trying to get back together for the umpteenth time, Maiden still rocks (to me), and newer bands are taking up the mantle of the old timers' stuff - I love bands like Disturbed, Godsmack, and Stuck Mojo's rise from the ashes back toward mainstream....
The folks that listen to R&B and hip hop - I have nothing against them and they have nothing against me blasting 30 seconds to mars in my car. I love older Queensryche (the splitting up of the band with de Garmo leaving was hard - they just don't have the same flair anymore) but there are other bands that also take the mantle - I am a silly addict of SOAD, don't ask me why, and more local bands of the harder nature....
Bah. I don't hold it against them if they don't hold my own choices against me. If they do, F'em.

You better be right to the "inth degree", 'cause there may be nothing to play with and it will cost you money in the end!
I have always loved Math, but it was the logic behind it that kept me driven. it is why I still love trying to solve problems, both hardware and software related, today - the underlying logic.
