basically my favorite bands are one half one subgenre of rock and the other half is another subgenre
one half consists of stuff like Sum 41 , Bowling for soup , The Offspring , and Sugarcult .
the other half is stuff like Killswitch Engage , All That Remains , Underoath , August Burns Red . stuff like that
those are what my absolute fave bands consist of however i enjoy some other rock bands but i don't really like anything that's not rock really .
We have a lot of music in common.
If you have any sort of inclination to give rap a try, I'd be willing to give you a few recommendations that wouldn't be as... abrasive, I guess? That seems to be the type of sound you don't like, maybe.
