I listen to whatever I like...metal or not. I'm not ashamed in the least of what I listen to, because it's all better than the current state of music.
I own a couple records by Dire Straits, The Eagles, Cranberries, Guns N' Roses, Sting and even a few jazz records by Alan Holdsworth, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Pat Metheny, Scott Henderson and Kevin Eubanks though most people know me as a die-hard metalhead. Hell I think I even have a few Hindi music CDs somewhere (I think one is by Shaan...can't remember the others), but it's nothing I would hide from my friends. I listen to whatever I like; if other people have problems with it...it's their problem.
