    Categorizing DSO as avant-garde feels really weird. It's basically just normal pieces assembled in an abnormal way. Then again, I don't know what the hell avant-garde really is, I guess.

    Also, I dare say Muse leans a lot more toward alternative rock than prog, but that's just me.

    I've been listening to a lot of new wave/post punk like Elvis Costello, Siouxsie and the Banshees, etc. lately. I mean, I always do that, but it's kind of at the front of the list right now.

    Normally, I wouldn't use this as an argument, but on most sites (Last.fm, Metal Archives and even Wikipedia) Diablo Swing Orchestra is listed as Avant-garde. And in a way, I think it fits them well.

    Take their newest album for instance, Pandora's Pińata. First track is heavily swing inspired and extremely catchy. The next is.. I don't know what to call it.. mexican? Then the third is more like metal (with cellos and trumpets), but with a very catchy calm and almost folk-like chorus as well. Later on, we find a full-scale opera track and a track that's more rock-orientated with a heavy funky bass. Not two songs sound alike.

    Avant-garde is characterized by being very experimental and unorthodox. I say that fits Diablo Swing Orchestra very well.

    As for Muse, I agree with you. However, I still think they have some vibes that are a bit prog-like. They also have very different songs with a lot of different styles.
    I won't talk about The 2nd Law, though. Yuck.

    I've got a variety of tastes ranging from "bad" to "okay." I listen to soundtracks and classical, some Japanese stuff, some Spanish. A little bit of rap from a select few artists and stuff. Nothing special really.

    For the last few months, I've been listening to a lot of The Aquabats! ever since I've started watching their show. They're a great band because they don;t take themselves too seriously and they are really nice guys. I even got to talk to one of them at a concert in late August.

    My newest find is Eyeshine. Their song "Stratosphere" always cheers me up, even when I'm not upset.
    It's not likely anyone will do it, but please do listen to it and tell me what you think of it
    I'll even listen to one of your song suggestions in return (This way, I can also find new songs to like, so you'd be doing me a favor!)

    My taste in music has changed rapidly over the last few years. I've gone from extremely heavy metal to rap to techno to plain old rock/alternative. As of right now, my favorite artists are:

    Breathe Carolina(They recently covered Michael Jackson's Billie Jean...loved it.)
    The Fray(Their newest album, Scars and Stories, is the best one yet. They've changed their sound a bit, but the emotion and feeling is still there, it's amazing.)
    Lights(She's my guilty pleasure, her music is simply captivating. A bit poppy to be sure, but still, I love it.)
    Deadmau5(Random Album Title is his best album so far, his newest one just didn't cut it for me. There Might Be Coffee is his best track so far though, if I do say so myself)
    Red Hot Chilli Peppers(Not much to say, their music is just awesome)
    We Came as Romans(They're a bit heavy, but their music has a really uplifting message to it.
    La Dispute(Oh. My. God. This band leaves me speechless. All the thought they put into their music is just fantastic.)
    Into It. Over It.(This guy reminds me a lot of La Dispute. His music is just so emotional and thoughtful and meaningful and ahh, I just love this guy xD)
    Imagine Dragons(I got into this band pretty recently, and have loved them since)

    Other artists I listen to include Mayday Parade, Weezer, Incubus, Dean Martin(!), All Time Low, Knife Party, Wolfgang Gartner, you get the idea.

    This is just scratching the surface of my musical tastes, but that's the general idea. I'm quite open to new music though, and love to discover new, amazing artists.

    I love a combination of Classical, Hip-hop and Dubstep
    I do like most music but those 3 genres just stand out to me personally.

    I'm all over the place in musical taste; although I seem to lean towards Alternative, Indie, and Folk. I'll do the same as the guy before me and put my favorite songs in brackets. c:

    My favorite bands
    Modest Mouse (Education, Dashboard, Spitting Venom)
    The National (Sorrow, Conversation 16, Afraid of Everyone)
    Mumford & Sons (Babel, Broken Crown, White Blank Page)
    the Mountain Goats (No Children, Lovecraft in Brooklyn, In The Craters on the Moon)
    Foo Fighters (Everlong, Skin and Bones, The Pretender)
    Radiohead (Bodysnatchers, Creep, Reckoner)
    Muse (Survival, United States of Eurasia, Assassin)
    Caravan Palace (Bambous, Dragons, Clash)

    I also really like Imagine Dragons, Awolnation, Nirvana, Pretty much any band with Dave Grohl, and Placebo.

    I mainly listen to folk (And all of it's incarnations. i.e. psychedelic folk, folk punk, etc.), bluegrass, Americana, Gothic Americana, alternative country, gothic country, dark cabaret, swing, and steam punk. I also like some post rock (Also known as progressive rock) too, but I think most post rock sucks. If it's pulled off well it's rather nice. Out of all those folk punk will probably always be my favorite. They're my favorite genres put together. What's not to love?

    I'm such a sad hipster that I doubt many of you will know much of what I'm about to list, but I have my fingers crossed I'll meet my musical twin! :x

    My musical taste is slowly growing. I actually only started listening to music about a year ago, which is surprising to me. I just never got into it. Anyway, here's my current list of artists on iTunes:

    Arctic Monkeys
    The Beatles
    Beck
    The Black Keys
    Blur
    Bob Marley and the Wailers
    Daft Punk
    David Bowie
    Electric Light Orchestra
    Eminem
    Foo Fighters
    Franz Ferdinand
    Gorillaz
    Jack White
    Johnny Cash
    The Killers (Hot Fuss only)
    MGMT
    Modest Mouse
    Nirvana
    Oasis
    Of Monsters and Men
    Queen
    Radiohead
    The Smashing Pumpkins
    The Strokes
    Weezer (Pre-Green Album)
    The White Stripes

    Thinking of adding Neutral Milk Hotel there sometime. I think I've fallen in love with Jeff Mangum after discovering them /mu/.
