C418 and other quiet ambient-like electronic songs. Anything more than that is better off with nothing.

Generally music without lyrics.

For me, this usually means post-rock: god is an astronaut, maybeshewill, long distance calling, and so I watch you from afar....

This post is totally going to sound like an informerical, but...


I never could listen to music when I code.  My personal MP3 collection is too... far ranging to just run on a playlist and I don't want to waste active brain power picking out a soundtrack, so I generally listened to nothing, or perhaps streamed a local radio station over the internet.

Then I found Slacker Radio.

This is absolutely perfect, whoever did the algorithms deserve kudos, they just do a wonderful job of finding appropriate music.  I search for a band or song, then sit back and listen to hours and hours of amazingly on topic music.

Generally I stick to old school pop punk like NOFX, Me First, Bad Religion, Pennywise, etc... or I go for an 80s kick with Violent Femmes, Dead Kennedys, etc.  Or if I want sligtly more modern, I go with Dropkick Murphys or Against Me.

I like heavier music, ( when driving or working out ), but not when coding.

Anything from OCremix.

Woo, OCR for the win. Oil Spill by analoq is my go-to track. Also uplifting trance because happyhappy (A&B, Armin, Dash Berlin etc.), but anything without words will do.

Oh, you must have misread me (or I didn't clarify). I said I normally don't like repetitive stuff, but for coding it's perfect (meaning I do like repetitive music for coding, as opposed to what I like when listening to music normally).

Ahh yes I did misread you sorry. It is perfect for coding Smiley. I still listen to electronic stuff while I'm not coding however, but it's probably more progressive house and songs with vocals.

Mine is much more of a clatter than a click, especially when programming.

I listen to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Flashbulb, random youtube mixes, Deep Forest, Jack Johnson, The Corrs, Killswitch Engage, some old Escape the Fate (lololol), The Used, A bunch of concertos... Whatever hits my speakers basically.

I gave this a go and absolutely hated it Smiley Not for me, very distracting noises without much melody, reminded me of venetian snares on crack played super slowmo, if that makes any sense.

If I'm coding tricky stuff then only silence will do, but usually I'm not doing anything particularly tough - just grinding through implement/test/debug cycles. So most of the time I'm listening to this sort of thing: my current Spotify playlist ...usually on shuffle.

Haha, saw them and Eluveitie last night, had an absolute blast!

My coding playlists vary wildly, but on the whole they are a single genre taken from :

- Metal
- Electro
- Post-rock
- Video Game/Anime Soundtracks

Depends on the current mood...

I just throw a Monstercat playlist - electronic or dubstep - on repeat and shuffle and do that typing thing.
