I'm still trying to master the myriad genre classifications used on this site, so I'll try to use those when I can:

Krautrock
Zeuhl
RIO
Canterbury
Experimental Metal
Post-Rock

But I also listen to these just as much

Indie Rock (Yo La Tengo, Guided by Voices, etc ....)
Outsider/Lo-Fi (R. Stevie Moore, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti)
Prog-Pop (Kayak, Supertramp, Earth and Fire, y'know, stuff with pop hooks and short lengths, but still complex harmonically or structurally)
British 60s Rock (Beatles, Kinks, Stones, etc)
Hardcore/ Post-Hardcore (Subhumans, Fugazi, Nomeansno, etc)
Standup Comedy

Most kinds of Rock (Psychedelic, Progressive, Hard, Classic, Punk, Post-Punk... and so on...)
Electronic Music (from early synth-experiments, to 80's new-wave to Aphex Twin and many things inbetween)
Jazz (Instrumental. Mostly from 1950-1975. Hard-bop, post-bop, modal, cool jazz, avant garde jazz, free jazz, jazz-rock/fusion)
 
And i'm sure there's more, but that's most of it
 
All of those i prefer if they have an experimental edge.

Symphonic Prog
Jazz Rock fusion
Hard Rock
Heavy Metal
RPI
Krautrock
Classical Music-Symphonic, Opera, Instrumental, Concertos

all non classical music is from the period of the late 60s to early 80s with the seventies predominating
most classical music is from the Late Romantic period, though i have earlier periods and later, as well
In classical music, i tend to favor Historical Recordings (those made before 1960, and have a fascination with Acoustical Process Recordings, those being before 1925)

i also listen to seventies Brazillian pop/traditional in the records of Fafa de Belem from that time

As long as it irritates those around me it's good stuff.

Was listening to a live version of FZ's 'King Kong' yesterday and my mum shouted at me to stop pretending to enjoy it.

This month it is mostly German Avantgarde, specifically Popol Vuh, and my own recorded riffs reminiscent of mid-60's rock-n'-roll and '73-'75 Jimmy Page Smile .

Other times it's British folk (Bert Jansch, Nick Drake; the latter for some reason is not recognized by some as a folk figure); New Wave (Talking Heads, PG); hardcore jazz fusion; some guilty pleasure pop (The Carpenters, The Bee Gees, ELO). Hell, I have so much music that my listening trend changes almost every month.

I listen most jazz-related and rock-related styles
easier to say what I NOT listen to:
1) crappy pop music (but not all is crappy!)
2) rap, hip-hop, so-called 'rnb'
3) punk, grunge, nu-metal, alternative metal, so-called "alternative" music, and most of 3-chord-driven guitar pop(rock)
4) 'popsy' electonic styles (trance,drunnbass,etc)
5) "extreme" metal subgenres (coprogrind, pornogrind, sh*tgrind, etc)

but of course, there are exclusions. Faith No More is great band, even if it's called "alternative" , Muse is good too

I listen mostly to art music, including classical music of La belle epoque, and some older classical. Apart from that I listen to some 60's and 70's jazz, as well as some contemporary Nordic jazz. I sometimes listen to prog rock of 60's and 70's, too, including the more prog related pop like The Beatles. 

I don't have any interest towards world music or pop. I also find baroque music too boring to be listened to seriously.
