    So I am going to be acquiring some fairly large hard drives (A couple 300gigs maybe) and I want to fill them with music. So I am asking the music loving OTers for some suggestions please.

    I love all types of music and I really can't stick to one type. I usually stick with anything that has a good beat or sounds really awesome jamming to. I don't really like ANYTHING that is slow, has people yelling, talks about jesus, has whining 16 year olds, is listened to by emo kids, isnt in english, and whatever else I can't think of.

    I am looking for some suggestions in the following categories and maybe something not in these categories but you think I might like them based on the following -

    Rap/Hip-Hop: Anything fast with a sick beat or sound. I dont care about lyrics really. Nothing with a stupid repetivive beat in the backround and some dude flowing.
    Trance/Electronica: I love good trance and hard house and stuff. I also LOVE Goa Psy.
    Rock: Mostly older stuff I guess but new stuff is ok too. I love Metallica. I like a Metallica like sound to my rock music. I like some Metal.
    Dance: Anything that you would hear at a club that makes you wanna sweat to the music!

    NO: Country, Polka, Anything grandma would listen to, and stuff like that.

    BOTTOM LINE:
    So basically to make it easy and suggest a couple favorites that I should aquire from the criteria I posted. Pick a few favorites that you would take with you to a deserted island with you :p (Albums I mean)

    God damn, read my minds. I'd like to add:

    Hip-Hop-
    Sage Francis

    House/techno/trance-
    DJ Diesel Boy
    and Goldie

    awesome.

    Rock I would say anything indie because it's all mellow and sweet, but indie is nowhere near metal :\

    based off your restrictions i reccomend nothing

    except for MF doom, there's too much him hop listed for you to not at least listen "accuire" his music

    Based on your above criteria, I think it'll be almost impossible to fill a 100GB hard drive, let alone a few 300GB ones.
