    I am mostly listening to Muse, Rage Against the Machine and a few tracks of System Of A Down. I know it's a weird combination but what are some bands similar to those
    Try Radiohead for similar stuff to Muse. They're only really similar to Muse's early stuff, though

    I'd like to hear some rapping similar to Del or Atmosphere
    Those two rap in a way that is very very clear to me so I enjoy them a lot more than other rappers

    I mainly listen to game soundtracks, the Beatles and daft punk, I do not like Auto Tune or Dupstep, so this might be a challenge, any recommendation?

    You seem young, wanting a start on a fresh slate:

    1. Get to yourself to http://rateyourmusic.com/ and http://www.last.fm so we can talk more
    2. Browse: http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=941755 , http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1075550 , http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1169377
    3. Obtain albums by a good method, stream them if you WANT but I recommend a better resource.

    Just grab using your instinct imo. The world is there.

    I'm looking to hear some classical music in the joyful, jubilant style of Mozart. And when I say classical, I don't mean it just as orchestral music. I'm saying that music from the classical era would be preferable. AK'z, I know you could probably help me with that. Here's an example of stuff I'm looking for:


    (the section at 3:11)

    Just stuff like that. Thanks in advance. (AK'z I know you could help me out with this)

    there are a lot more knowledgeable people from that thread, give them a shout.

    however, I think I can still grab something you may like:

    Check out the recommendation thread or the album rating thread and take your pick. It's hard to give any specific recommendations based on just The Beatles and Daft Punk. Also, is it auto-tune being used to perfect vocals that you hate, or the sound of the effect it makes? (E.G. in Cher's Believe) I personally dislike the idea of Auto-Tune being used to make vocals sound perfect, but I find when it's used as an effect it can sound quite nice. There's some nice music that uses it for the effect that you'd be shutting yourself out of by not going near anything with auto-tune

    I hate auto-tune since they don't bother to hide the fact in music, I don't mind them using it, just when it is so obvious I don't like it.

    A lot of the time Auto-Tune is used it's meant to be obvious, like here:
    It gives the electronic tone to their voices, and really helps their voices to fit into the music better. The voices wouldn't mix with the music nearly as well without the auto-tune

    I don't mind it fitting in with music, but there are certain types of music that my ears say "no", even if it is meant, also I like that song now, might check the rest.

    however, someone could just download the video then demux the audio and gain a free supreme quality mp3 in their grasp. Makes sense.

    I've recently gotten into a band called Infinity Shred(or now called that)

    They're very grunge, using chiptunes in tandem with guitar and drums. Lots of spacey music.

    So I started to listen to more Perfume songs (thanks Hugarh for that song you posted) and I still want more music. I remembered Clutch who made a song for L4D2, but I can not find other work from him, I am not even sure if it is the name of the band.

    If you liked the Perfume stuff you could try Ami Suzuki's latest album "Supreme Show." They have the same producer (Yasutaka Nakata from capsule, IIRC), but the Ami Suzuki album is more upbeat and poppy.

    Clutch did a song for the L4D2 adverts, I think, which is on this album (it's track 6)

    Clutch is a band and I'm surprised you can't find their other stuff, they're fairly famous in the stoner rock scene
    http://www.last.fm/music/Clutch
    Some of my favorite albums of theirs:

    From Beale Street to Oblivion
    This one has the song from L4D2, Electric Worry, so you might want to start with it

    Robot Hive / Exodus

    Blast Tyrant

    Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan if you like Tom Waits. For sure.

    Also Captain Beefheart.
