Wide-ranging genre of music originating from the late 80's and includes everything from happy hardcore to industrial to breakbeat. Techno does not "suck dick" as many here say. In fact what many people say is much better music (rap and metal, for instance) would not exist in the same form they do now if it was not for the fact that techno was invented, and all the techno-influenced instruments that followed.
Techno is often misconstrued purely as the degenerate "doof-doof" garbage put out by producers during the mid-90's. In actual fact, most decent techno, and its more lyrical offshoot EBM has many variations during a song and a set theme. Just most of you assholes are too up yourselves to hear any of it.
Also, whoever says Moby is techno because their master Eminem happens to say so needs to get a slap. Moby is in fact, electronica, which is completely different.
