Spotify is indeed awesome. The free phone version isn't too awesome, though. :-P Really dig the free desktop one. I like jamming out to some ApologetiX and Lindsey Stirling with it.
Godspeed, random person!

Bitrates and formats:

320kbps Ogg - Spotify Premium
320kpbs MP3 - Mogg, also Beats Music (Apple)
256kbps AAC - typical iTunes downloads
192kbps AAC+ - Pandora One
192kbps AAC (max) - Youtube
192kbps Ogg - Spotify Free
128-192kbps MP3/AAC - plug.dj (piggybacks on Youtube and Soundcloud)
128kbps MP3 - Soundcloud, also Slacker
128kbps MP3 (max) - Jango
64kbps AAC+ - Pandora Free

For the same bitrate, AAC+ > AAC > Ogg > MP3, roughly speaking, but once you get to 320kbps the differences are minor.

I've been enjoying some slightly abnormal tunage by Rhett & Link: My OCD, Nilla Wafer Top Hat Time, and Have You Ever.

Hope I'm not intruding by replying here; I'm assuming this is fine because it's stickied.

I really am interested in Doom Metal, and Progressive Metal.
I also really enjoy Pink Floyd and their style, along with just rock and roll.
A lot of the metal I listen to is aspired from bands like Pink Floyd, which is probably why I like them so much, but that's just speculation.

Some bands that I like:
Doom Metal:
Pallbearer - This is my favorite song, which is not something easy for me to say.
Progressive Metal:
ISIS - This is my favorite Prog. Metal band
Inter Arma - The Long Road Home
Lately I've been listening to some experimental music that combines Doom Metal with raw rock and roll, if anybody is interested:
Druid, Druid

:)
