I'm 30 years old. I fell out of touch with American music sometime in the late 2000s, because I got into European metal music. I started off listening to symphonic metal, but eventually ended up listening to power and epic metal. Along with some folk metal and pagan folk. Yeah, I'm eclectic. Anyway, in 2012 I saw psy's 'gangnam style' for the first time, and was blown away. I eventually become addicted to kpop and stopped listening to metal all together.
When I was young, I listened to the typical pop music you saw in the late nineties (I was in middle school then). In high school I pretty much just listened to Rammstein and 93.3 the planet (a radio station). I got more into NDH metal after high school, but did still have a secret interest in the pop music of the time.
Of course, I know its not common for people my age to listen to kpop. But I was wondering, what do people in my age group normally listen to? I've been out of the loop for a while, and I'm a shut-in that never goes outside other than to buy groceries. I don't even know what artists there are now. I know of Lady Gaga (I don't care for her though, she's weird). I also heard of Justin Bieber when he was in the news several years ago, for acting like a dumbass. I also used to hear a lot about some group called 'one direction', though I've never heard any song of theirs.
I'm not looking into getting into new genres. I'm just a weird guy with weird interests and I'm just curious what would be considered normal for my generation.
