I personally love progressive rock myself. You can't go wrong with great artists such as Genesis, Yes, and The Alan Parsons Project.

Post-hardcore.

But since there is no such option and it is a development of hardcore I chose that.

So... non-metal genres just mean other rock genres?
Also, I'm pretty sure Grindcore is a metal genre.

Actually, it isn't. Grindcore is just a fusion of crust punk and death or thrash metal. It's often considered "too punk for metalheads and too metal for punks".

I tend to like bands/artists, not genres. But I do love classic prog, so I voted for that.

Between hard rock and alternative rock. There is a lot of good music coming out of both.

Well, I grew up on prog rock, my father listened to bands like Pink Floyd, Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Genesis all the time. I used to dislike them, found them boring, but now I learned to appreciate this kind of music. So I voted for prog rock too.

I like decent rap rock music and therefore I listen to Hollywood Undead.

They got some really good albums in their bag. Deuce fucked up, walked out the band and started solo project which was quite highlighted in mainstream mags contemplating that DEUCE WAS HU. That was a rough patch

Well, their latest album was pleased me up a bit but nevertheless a great band to have some spins-off their early records.

I've never heard any metalhead say its too punk, but I have heard the other one and grindcore IS a sub genre in metal. If its a fusion of punk and metal as you say it is but you say its not metal then that means its not punk either, considering your logic.
But to stay on topic, I'd probably say classic rock, or punk.

Out of the choices given, Stoner Rock. Besides those options, a never ending rotation of blues, country and folk.

Alternative rock, I love everything from Grunge to Shoegaze to Jangle Pop and everything in between.

Classic rock isn't a genre, it's a radio format, most of which is either blues rock or hard rock with some power pop and psychedelic rock as well. It's really pretty outrageous how they left out pop rock, psychedelic rock, and gothic rock, but included both grunge and alternative, and punk, hardcore, and grindcore when each is just a subgenre of the last. And stoner rock, why is that there?

When I read non-metal I thought of another genre that has nothing to do with any form of rock. Mine is classical music. Not the soft melodies, but the bombastic ones; to me it feels like they give me a similar feeling as to when I listen to metal.
Hardcore and grindcore are metal sub-genres. I believe those shouldn't be in the list to choose from... IMO.
