The word commonly used by idiot 'gangstas' and 'teeny boppers'to describe all Electronic music.
Me: *plays Trance music*
Gangsta: Uhh...this is Techno right?
Me: No, it's Trance you dumbfuck!
Gangsta: Whateva...shit sounds all the same to me.
Me: Typical...

The type of music that cant be dissed or talked shit about. With lyrics or no lyrics it still sounds awsome and makes people wanna dance. It doesnt try to show off like idiot rappers (ie. 50 cent, Ja rule, ect.) Its a form or electronica music that has lots of energy in it and makes you wanna dance!
Techno and other types of electronica music are most commonly played in clubs because you can really dance to it!

*sigh* people have no clue, techno is not listened to by ravers, it's a form of techno most commonly called rave music.
Techno is everywhere, whether it be from subtle synthesizer based special effects to actual songs.
Please don't mistake rubbish for techno, it is a very unique form of electronic music, different to the rubbish played on kiss100 everyday.
Don't go with the majority like eminem, he even requires techno based background music, but then again rap is crap.
"Good techno"
Aphex Twin
Daft Punk

A word people use incorrectly to name all of Electronic Music.

Really, "Techno" is its own genre of Electronic Music. It consists of a BPM range from 120 to 150 and a 4/4 drum pattern.
"Dude I love this Techno music."

"That's not techno, it's Electro House"

Very misunderstud sub genre of dance. You only here it played in clubs like lakota in bristol or dance academy in plymouth, you wont find it in clubs like ministry or gatecrasher, except on a very very rare occasion! If you own a ministry CD or infact any CD thats proberly charted it wont be techno!!!
Get a slammin vinyl techno tape back. Most popular artist are Producer, Scorpio and Mark EG when he starts of his sets usally. My advice listern to hard style alot better (e.g. M-Zone, Analogue Disturbance, Vortex, Mark EG when he's on form).

Possibly one of the best types of music, it uses sythesizers and electronic base beats and some times electricized(is that a word?) singing.
That techno song is awsome!

I remember 20 years ago or so, the word 'Techno' was used more similarly to the way the word 'Electronica' is used now.

Over time, 'electronica' has seemingly assumed its position at the top of the tree, and 'techno' has sort of un-evolved into a less broad, or more specific term.
