I guess I'd have to say alternative, of these choices. Stuff like Guided by Voices, Big Star, the Old 97's, Whiskeytown, the Mats, the Posies, the Clash, Television, the Pernice Brothers, and Teenage Fanclub.
Though I guess a lot of my favorite bands would probably fall under the "classic rock" genre - the Beatles, the Byrds, the Beach Boys, the Monkees, the Kinks, the Stones, the Dead, America, Neil Young - so I guess that would be 1(a) for me.
Mostly it's guitar-based pop music, whatever genre you want to put it in.
Sometime's a guy's gotta ride the bull, am I right? Later, skater.

I picked metal, because that's my primary preference and what makes up the bulk of my music collection. Classic and prog rock definitely have a visible presence. Alternative is high up there, because my high school years were consumed by the grunge era.
I might find a pop artist or two that strikes my fancy. Not a big rap fan, but I love Cypress Hill and House of Pain is okay. I enjoy Chopin and Beethoven. Bing Crosby makes the best Christmas music CD's..
I hate country, though, which makes me want to vomit profusely.
My biggest secret, though, is my love of electronica/dance/techno music.

Wo ist meine indie-pop option? Also a bit of chamber/orchestral-pop. I love Belle & Sebastian and Maxïmo Park most, also Field Music and all their shoot-offs...and a bunch of others. A smattering of other styles, too, although most of it is pop-ish in one way or another...

Seen them four or five times at various sized venues and when they filled in on the main stage at T In The Park for The White Stripes when Jack broke his finger in 2003. 50,000 REM fans standing in a field gong "what the hell's this?" at the start before ending up singing along to Thank You Jack White at the end because they were so good they won everyone over. Pretty incredible.
It always comes crashing down around your ears. At least they may have hurt their bums on my monitors.
