Anyone here NOT listen predominantly to metal?

Just thought I'd throw this out there (in the jazz section to minimize the chances of my being decapitated) but does anyone here listen to metal on a subordinated level compared to other genres?

Don't get me wrong, I know this is (and as such heavier genres will likely prevail), but sometimes I feel like a minority in that metal is not my primary genre.

I'm mostly a jazz, classical and fusion guy, but beyond that I like some progressive rock. I enjoy Periphery, AAL and Sky Eats Airplane just like everyone else here, but I feel (especially with SEA and other bands that heavily utilize screaming and the like) that there's a point where I find it abrasive and not pleasing to listen to.

Don't want to open up a can of worms here, just want to see if there's someone here who would rather turn on "Kind Of Blue" over "Fistful Of Metal" or the like.
