That would be pretty much all of them, old or new.

I'm a Boomer.

(Late Boomer, aka Generation X, aka all the other generations except for the last three or four).

Remember those fashionable tunes you listened to eighty times a day for three months straight and can no longer stand? Well, I didn't over-dose on many of them, and still like them. Some, of course, I still hate, which is why I never listened to them in the first place.

I really like Kesha - Die Young. I don't know why, but it's just peppy enough to get me going.

None, anymore. A while back I would, but then decided "Why the hell do I care about someone else's opinion of what tickles my fancy? Life kinda sucks, I'm not enjoying fewer things because someone else thinks it's weird."

/I'd like to say that's maturity, but I think the rest of my life says that mature shouldn't be used to describe any part of it.

Now that I've said my piece, to play along with the spirit of the question I think a lot of people would be amused to know how hard I'll bop along to Spears' 3.

When out in the car, I always play my music with the windows closed, because I'm not one of those egomaniacal twats who thinks that everybody in a three block radius will be impressed by my amazing taste in rhythmic noise.

I had never watched that video until I saw this, and was curious about it:

I like my hearing, it's just loud enough for me, inside the car.

I'm long past the days of caring if anyone doesn't like my goofy music.

I can be pretty open- or closed-minded about music, but this is enough to cop to.

There's a jazz station on Sirius called Escape.  It plays Muzak versions of everything.  And one of the most popular acts is the Lawrence Welk orchestra.  There's not any one song that I can point to, but I will always change the station before getting out of the car.  I listen to this station to Zen out in heavy traffic, but I am not letting anyone else in my car with it on.  You haven't lived until you've heard Lawrence Welk's version of the Stones' Satisfaction.

I have Google play voice commands in my car.  When I see a cop pulling over a car way up the street I have enough time to request the cops theme song.  Timed right, with all windows down, I get a hearty chuckle from the law enforcement officers.

I was playing that once in a 1999 BMW Z3 with the top down and at a stoplight a guy in a pickup truck made it a point to roll down his window and call me a sexual slur.

I can't stand Britney Spears, but mostly because there was a long stretch where you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing her.

That said, I do enjoy Kascade's remix of Wonanizer.

Actually, there are a few songs that I normally can't stand but enjoy the vocal trance or vocal dubstep version of.

While I am rapidly learning to not give a fark about what other people think, I am still prone to waiting for a nice long highway drive before cranking some anime opening/closing songs. I try to keep the volume slightly lower than mirror shaking levels in town or the burbs.

I have no shame and don't care what I listen to in public, but I outright DARE somebody to get a car with a premium sound system, seal up the windows, and drive down the freeway blasting this:

It's not a song that I'm embarrassed to play but one I do play with the volume up when I'm in the car.

All of them, but mainly because I make liberal use of climate control in the car and because I'm wearing headphones at home to reduce extraneous noise so I can fully hear what I'm listening to.
