Default Just for fun: what music genre would FF7 characters listen to?

Yeah, don't ask why I came up with this idea

So, basically what the title says, what kind of music do you think different FF7 characters would listen to?

Isn't President Shinra listening to some kind of classical music when Sector 7 falls?


(I'll try to create a more serious thread next time...)

Pres Shinra us listening to Hayden's "The Creation" iirc.

Reno: Punk Rock - stuff like the Ramones, not shitty modern punk stuff.

Elena: Bubblegum pop - all the more scary when shes killing people

Vincent : 80's goth stuff obviously, sisters.of mercy etc

Cait sith is reeve and reeve is a socially concious hipster douche do likes stuff like bob dylan and joan baez.

Cant think of any.more right now.

Pretty sure I've seen a thread like this before.

If his theme is anything to go by, I bet Cait Sith likes smooth jazz.

I could see Cid liking classic rock.

Sephiroth likes Ominous Latin Chanting.

In before someone suggests Barret listens to rap / hip-hop / another "urban" genre.

I can imagine him listening to something heavy to get worked up before an AVALANCHE mission.

I think barret is too old for hip hop/urban stuff anyway. I reckon he likes soul and classic rock.

I think

Bugenhagen likes experimental music and music that makes use of the sounds of nature and machines. His favorite beats are the vibrations from the planet. He is very mathematical/music-minded. He invented the theramin.

Nanaki is a genius musician in his head but sadly he has a canine body and can't do so much as write it down or even hit (mash) less then 3 keys on the piano at once.

Sephiroth I see being a fan of alternative rock, alternative metal, industrial metal, and industrial rock. He seems like the type of person who would prefer music that has edge to it.

^^Or he prefers whatever music Shin-Ra has as the background music for the Shin-Ra Tower that day. I kinda doubt he was exposed to any music genres in his time pre-Wutai War.

I have a hard time separating Cait Sith from his 40s-esque jazz theme song

Rufus appreciates classical music and can play piano (this is my head canon, blame Redcherryamber - also read her fics). He says doesn't like music with lyrics because they're distracting. He actually really likes rap.

Tseng likes screaming heavy metal, he listens it with head phones in and appear very calm and tranquil.

We've actually already had this thread before, so I guess it's not such a weird idea.

To appropriate IRL music -
- Yuffie most definitely listens to kpop.
- Sephiroth is the quintessential Rammstein fanboy.
- President Shinra loves Sinatra.

Why? (there has to be a story behind this)

Not much of a story, but he likes spoken word poetry and he likes the emotions. He likes the beat and the vivid pictures painted with words in a mic, like screaming without raising your voice, just words.

Reno and Rude, probably. But for Rufus, I can't see that, honestly, given his extremely refined mannerisms and socioeconomic status. For contemporary music, I can really imagine him being into ballads and soft indie rock. I think he'd like the Decemberists.
