)
-Led Zeppelin
-Kittie (another sample:

-Queen
-Thursday
-Rammstien
-Ted Nugent
-Blink 182 (they are mainstream but I don't care)
-Beloved
-Judas Priest
-Iron Maiden

My favorite non-Classical bands and singers are foreign. French (or French-Canadian), Greek, Arabic and Japanese pop/rock, some jazz.

I listen to the music for the melody and, unless it is a bit older, I don't listen to music for the lyrics.

Actually I have music by Alex Avramovici and Teodor Munteanu, who despite being Romanian, play alot of Greek folk music, and in the near future I hope to purchase a bouzouki. Looking at one now for $499

Actually, if you look at this link, it has nothing to do with Greek folk music. They are a group of heavenly voices who sing all the Orthodox services in English.

(The bouzouki is great and I love it...it has an interesting history--it was brought to Greece in the early part of the 20th century by refugee Greeks of Asia Minor (Turkey), and was not considered 'Greek' music, until being mainstreamed in the early '60's by greats like Mikis Theodorakis and Hadjithakis who wrote Zorba the Greek, but you still won't hear it in the Greek Orthodox Church! LOL! --There is no such thing as bouzouki liturgies! wink )
