Change few words with better ones and you might get it right.

Well, lets see. Didn't mtv create this "electronic" label and slapped it on everything that isn't pop/rock/rap/alternative/country etc ?

I call it techno.

It is too simplified. There is as many trends and types in electronic music as in the rest, you refer as pop/rock/rap/alternative/country

I probably have about 1,500 CDs and more than 60% is electronic music.

I maybe have 500 records and only 5% is electronic music. Guess why I'm selling my TT.

Peter, I agree.

Same here, over 50% of the music that I listen to is electronica/techno. Mostly its drum and bass, rest is stuff like Orbital, FSOL, Delerium (can we put them in this category heh), Banco De Gaia, Autechre etc.

I was once a great fun of Delerium, as well as Front Line Assembly. Then it was Front 242 and nowadays I'm in favour of lighter sounds like Apoptygma Berzerk and VNV Nation. Quite a lot of new music is coming from Germany nowadays. It doesn't even bother me if the lyrics are in German, it kind of suits the music.

Hey, that was already a quite good one!

I'd say: "recordings, that get a special touch (character??) by involving electronic devices wether to create sounds or alter them in a significant way"

Of course one could say, well that when Michael Jackson or whoever nowadays goes to a studio in order to record, loads of "electronic devices" are used to improve the performance.

But I hope you got my idea.

No. Is it like Shonen Knife from Japan emulating the sound of Ramones?

I'm more into stuff like: Inscape, Die Form, :Wumpscut, KMFDM, Wolfsheim, Funker Vogt, not to mentioning the Ramstein.

You're closer to the truth than you suppose.

They call it "digital hardcore"

distorted guitars, shouting & weird beats programmed on an Atari, put together with a real "punk" attitude.
They named one of their albums "destroy 2000 years of culture".

Check them out, they're funny as Hell.....

I don't know all the bands you mentioned........
