Just depends on what you listen to. I personally don't for the fact that I'm not interested in feeding my flesh with the things of this World. The Bible says Walk in the Spirit so that you do not feed the desires of the flesh. To walk in the Spirit means to Read The Word Of God Sing Spiritual songs,and Pray and Worship the Lord and anything that pleases the Lord.
Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever. (1 John 2:15-17 NLT)

Since music exerts such a powerful influence, Christians are wise to be selective in the music they choose. While that does not rule out all secular music, you may want to ask yourself: What message does the music convey? How does the music affect my feelings? Will the music influence my values? Music is truly a gift from God, but you must take care not to misuse it. "Do all things for God?s glory." says 1 Corinthians 10:31. As a Christian, I asked a similar question some years ago and the article I put a link to at the end helped me to make some honest evaluations. It gives guidance according to the Bible, I hope you find it helpful! http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1102008135?q=music&p=par
Does it glorify God? Or if God was right next to you, would you listen to it? Alot of christians do and some don't. Its your choice. I wouldn't say that all of its bad, but there is a lot of crap out there. If it distances you from God or leads you to sin, then you should probably stop listening to it.
