Who doesn't like music, I never have liked it and can't find any that I like, it just hurts my ears and get paniky and overwhelming feelings.
Especially don't like it when there are restaurants and shops blasting loud music.

Have you found any types that you dislike less than others? If so, is there a common element to the types you more fervently dislike? (bass heavy, treble heavy, too much percussion, vocals, etc.)

So, I'm NOT alone in that!

I'm sorry but I'm excited to hear that! Because I've never heard of anyone else who cannot stand music, even among other autistic people.

My favorite music is electronic/pop (and a lot of pop whether it's electronic or not), alternative/90s, and I only like some rap songs when I'm in the mood rarely. I don't think country music is bad.

I like music a lot actually. I like to find songs that relate to my special interests. I don't really prefer one genre. I focus more on the lyrics. However, I disliked music and didn't understand it until recently. Before that, I actually had no idea what songs meant to convey and I thought they were just a bunch of lines strung together in a pattern. I also need to have the lyrics to a song in order to fully appreciate it.

There is a lot of music I like, but also a lot I can't stand...most of what I can't stand is more popular stuff, I like metal of all kinds and various sorts of rock and other random stuff I have heard. But I hate pop music and that weird hip hop/rap with the furby vocals, I have heard a little rap I like alright though. I also really hate most country I ever hear in any store, my ears might as well bleed when it comes to that, in fact it would be preferable.

I like a lot of music but my grandpa who is NOT on the spectrum never liked music but he would tolerate it.

If anything I am too wide ranging in my tastes in music. Like classical, jazz, various types of rock, electronica. Rap is an acquired taste. Old time show tunes. Indian raga music, flamenco,

I have read about folks who don't like music, or who just don't respond to it. Read about a lady who thought of music as being like "the sound of someone dropping the dishes in your kitchen". In fact I read about it in a book about human evolution called "the Singing Neanderthals". So I was aware of that as being like a medical condition. But never met anyone IRL, nor online (until you two just now) who were like that. It maybe that youll never find any kind of music that you like. Which seems sad and odd to most of us, but maybe not to you.

What do you think of movie soundtracks? Does it add anything to the film or just a distraction? Or maybe just try to ignore it?

What genres have you tried? If your only real exposure to music has been stuff on the radio, then I really can't blame you for not liking it.

If you're looking for something that's not like typical music, try Aphex Twin or some other ambient artists.

Would lute music like this be bearable for you?

I would suggest you start with classical music and then go on to the classic hits..
1. Classical music:
- The Rain Waltz by Frederick Chopin
- Final theme from the movie Ballad of the bomber
- The Force theme from Star Wars
- Winter by Antonio Vivaldi
...
2. The hits:
- Animals House of the rising sun
- Scorpions songs
- Money by ABBA
...
