If I'm listening to something from America then yes I'll probably expect it to have lyrics that I can understand but if I'm listening to Rammstein or ABS I know walking in that I'm listening to it for the music as opposed to just strictly the lyrics.

When it comes down to it No, I basically listen to music for the sounds and stuff not what the persons saying. But if i can understand the language and the lyrics aren't retarded like Newer songs usually are then yes.

Nope, if it sounds good, it's good and if it sounds bad, it's bad. Although sometimes I check up the translation on the song to understand it.

No, but if it sounds good, I'll look for the translation. Sometimes, I will even end up learning the lyrics if I read the them a few times and listen to the song often, this last happened with a russian song (Inner Universe by Origa).

Only with rap. I mean, I prefer to listen to rap when I understand lyrics. But talking about other music styles I don't really mind. I love to listen to J-Music, for example.

I'll always look for translation if it sounds good. Actually, I always check translations for JP songs.

No, I listen to bands like Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance frequently.

music is more than just lyrics , even if you dont understand you can still just listen to the sound and the emotions it brings

No. I usually don't place much importance on lyrics.
