    Steely Dan. She hates Rush too, but I’m not a big fan. She likes pretty much everything else I listen to though, which is a lot. She attended a Zappa Plays Zappa show with me and had the ladies room pretty much all to herself.

    My wife was a good sport. She tolerated a lot.

    Wife hates Paul McCartney (and Beatles). But I ****ing hate her There Might Be Giants. And rightfully so.

    My wife can't abide Neil Young or Bob Dylan ("whiny guys" who I like) but Tom Waits is one of her very favorites.

    Ditto. She likes Gn'R and Queen, and stuff from the '80s like Whitesnake and Toto, so we're OK there, but "jazz" seems to be where we hit a bit of a wall. Even Steely Dan: I get "the look" if I play more than two songs from e.g. Aja or Gaucho, which by her reckoning is also "jazz".

    I'm currently uncertain where she stands on Eric Johnson, but I have a feeling he may be "jazz" too....

    To be fair to my fiance, last night I had on Sunday at the Village Vanguard and she quite liked Bill Evans' interpretation of Alice in Wonderland.

    Ah, but where does she stand on Holdsworth's: "Sixteen Men of Tain"? Perhaps I could get George Ezra to attempt a version.

    On second thoughts....

    She's definitely not a fan of that one!

    Holdsworth's best though IMHO.

    There is enough overlap of stuff we equally like, and while we might not share favorites, we tend to at least casually enjoy each other’s tastes at the periphery. I don’t think we’ve ever had to ask each other to turn something off out of distaste, rather more of the “I’m on the phone can you turn it down?”

    Sometimes one of us might be listening in a distracted way, while working, and let an album repeat a few times. We’ve both asked each other to switch it up, in that event.

    I guess I’m lucky. My SO will sing along to an entire Steely Dan, Pavement, or Slayer album in the car.

    The one thing she gets irritated by are graphically violent or sexual lyrics. For whatever reason, she is ok with the most aimless prog, heaviest metal, gangster-est rap, or noisiest art rock as long as they aren’t talking about murder or dropping the p word.

    Just about anything rock/metal-oriented that I want to turn up loud. As long as it's background noise she doesn't mind.

    The one exception I've found is that when I put on Sleep's Dopesmoker she is the one to turn up the volume. God I love her :banana

    Joni Mitchell. I can only play Joni on headphones or when my wife goes out.

    I feel my eyes turn to lead, the onset of lockjaw from extreme yawning and my brain turn to mush when I hear my wife listen to a Coldplay dirge .

    Robben Ford. She cant abide by his singing.

    Lots of guitarcentric fusion: tim Miller or Holdsworth for instance.

    She's become a bit of a Sco convert though. When we first met, she hated his sound. The Past Present album finally turned her round

    Rush towers above the competition when it comes to music I love that my wife hates. She likes pop with a lot of vocals and is less impressed with instrumental prowess. And for some reason, Geddy just creeps her out. She wouldn’t even watch him on Dan Rather’s Big Interview, and she likes that show!

    But... she’ll go with me to see Wilco, John Butler Trio, Dead and Company. And when I have iTunes on shuffle, a lot of times she’ll ask what something is.

    And she likes some Miles Davis!
