Is it normal to just like a few bands/artists?

I just like around 10-15 bands/artists. It's hard to get into anything else, though I like some songs by artists such as Oasis, Nirvana, REM, Timbaland, etc. I need to like the singer's voice as well as the lyrics and overall sound.

I think most people only like a few bands and artists so you fall in the "normal" scale. Especially the older people get the less they look out for new stuff.

I think that's awful though, there is so much amazing music out there that you're missing out by not wanting to experiment and go outside your current tastes. The bands that you mention are only the tips of the ice berg, there's much more amazing stuff out there.

I listen to new stuff daily, but I only have a handful of "favorites", whether it be artists or albums. I don't blame you for Nirvana though, In Utero is a great album. Hopefully you're listening to their full albums and not just their singles.

I listen to well over 400 different artists, personally. I think it's weird to not wanna broaden your horizons or to only like 90's alternative rock for the most part, but it's not weird weird, just uncommon. Like sdp said, there's just SO much out there...

Well, my favourite bands/artists are from most decades such as Bob Marley, Tom Jones, The Saw Doctors, Nelly Furtado, Bad Religion, The Corrs and Neil Diamond. I should've said that first.

I agree that there is so much music out there, as there is a lot of choice nowadays.
