hey... i apologize for the hastily-titled thread, but i was wondering what everyone on the board listens to? (besides your mothers pleading for you to GET JOBS!!! j/k)

well, i went to the recent Secret Chiefs III/Sleepytime Gorilla Museum show at the urban lounge, and it was out of control!

anyway, my music collection has been packed with:

SC3
SGM
buckethead
thanatopsis
radiohead
bill laswell
johnny cash
primus
C2B3
Mr. Bungle (probably my favorite)
sublime
hiero/souls of mischief

Mostly OverClocked Remixes (Castlevania, Zelda, Metroid, Final Fantasy)

Also, electronic music, and local music you all probably have never heard

Yeah, kill me Wink

Oh dear God the stuff I listen to... Um...

A lot of video game music, most stuff you've probably not heard (such as piano arrangements, special live performances, or just a really eccentric game, etc), four string quartet tributes, trance, epic trance, rock, industrial, classical, soundtrack, jazz, blue grass, nerdcore, and so on.

I listen to a lot of Bemani music, mainly, along with some of my own stuff, although that's very rare. My playlists are usually only 3-5 songs long. The tracks I've been listening to lately are Mindless Self Indulgence's "Shut me up", a remix of 100-200-400's (yes that's the artist) "Fascination Maxx" called "Cally and Juice's Maxximum Overload Mix", "Fascination -eternal love mix-", and Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" and "Headlock". Sometimes Dethklok creeps in there too...

Personally I listen to stuff which most other people find awful, like Barenaked Ladies, Del Amitri, The Divine Comedy, Butterfly Boucher, Meat Loaf, Jellyfish and loads of remixes from Kwed.Org.

As well as being obsessive about video games, I'm also obsessive about indie music to the point of contributing to a blog. I also find time to write some stuff. It's pretty good fun.

Do I smell a last.fm TIGSource group coming up?

A friend of mine suggested that most programmers in games tend to fall in to 2 catagories of music listening.  Group A primarily likes heavy rock.  Group B primarily likes weird electronic music.  Sure, it's not 100% accurate, but it's interesting.

I'm in the weird electronic group, with some crossover.  I've been fascinated at one time or another with Prodigy, Crystal Method, Front Line Assembly, Skinny Puppy, Haujobb, Infected Mushroom, Dark Soho, Celldweller, Machinae Supremacy, Man or Astroman?, Mars Volta, Joe Satriani, End, The FlashBulb, chiptunes, anything on the SID, and everything in between.

In addition to the above,
They Might Be Giants, Sage Francis, Aesop Rock, Dragonforce, Skindred, Saul Williams, some other spoken word poets, Thursday, Dose One, Klashnekoff, Rammstein, DJ Tiesto, Wierd Al, Muse, and Basement Jaxxxxxxxxxx...I think thats a few too many x's.

Anyway, yeah, wide assortment of music. I'll listen to pretty much anything. But Grandaddy and Saul Williams are my current favorites.

good amount of electronica, mostly downtempo. I've also amassed a ton of game soundtracks and remixes that find steady rotation. I listen the crap out of the EVE: Online soundtrack but still love a good Megaman/Metroid track thrown in.

Overly lyrical stuff doesn't work for me when I'm coding tho, cause I'm completely unable to separate the music from the thoughts in my own head  Shocked

Listening to a lot of stuff from http://www.micromusic.net these days. Also oddness like Autechre, Lusine Icl, Boards of Canada, Mu-ziq, Jega, Isan, Gescom, Bola, Plaid, Lektrogirl, etc. This spring I'll get a new remix.kwed.org mix done up for the car. Smiley

I actually don't have time to listen to music these days. Also, all my music is on vinyl and all my records have been transferred back to New Zealand in preparation for our eventual return home.

But if I did, there's a fair bit of jazz (of the Miles Davis variety), funk (of the electric Herbie Hancock variety), a whole bunch of Iggy Pop records, old-school rap music, a bit of punk, some Lee Perry, and minimalist post-rock/math rock like Shellac and Trans Am.

I guess I'd be in the A group, then. But I do enjoy electronic music as well (I don't know why, but I just love the weird, experimental sound of the Clean Asia soundtrack).

I listen to pretty much everything in the hard rock/metal genre. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Korn, Slayer, AC/DC, Motörhead, Deep Purple, Nirvana, Machinae Supremacy, System of a Down, Audioslave and Rage Against the Machine are among my favourites. I also have a sick devotion to chip music Smiley

Huh. I think I have fairly broad tastes:

Jurrassic 5, DJ Format, Boards of Canada, Mouse on Mars, Mogwai, The Hives, The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Air, Lemon Jelly, Gnarls Barkley, Audio Bullies, Dandy Warhols, Weezer, Daft Ounk, Flaming Lips, Interpol, Muse, Mcklusky, Violent Femmes, Joy Division.

So, erm. Indie rock and electronica, then, with a smattering of B-Boy breaks and oldschool hiphop. Not as broad as I thought, after all.

I also can't stop listening to comedy: Stewart Lee, Richard Herring, Armando Ianucci, Peter Baynham, Chris Morris.

Heh, this definitely seems to be close to the truth. Guess that puts me in group B since I'm fairly big into psytrance stuff (makes for awesome driving music). Lots of Infected Mushroom (Cool to see some other fans, and I'm STILL waiting for their new album), Astrix, System Nipel, Electric Universe, Synsun, etc. Some oldies are good too like Pink Floyd, ELO, the Doobie Bros., Led Zeppelin, as well as some new stuff like Foo Fighters and Franz Ferdinand.

Gotta throw in some game music too though; you just can't go wrong with Megaman 2 & 3.
