Music

I'll be the first to tell you that my music taste is a bit eclectic. When I'm driving around town, I listen to country, but when I'm in the gym it changes. Basically, anything that has a good beat and gets me going. What do ya'll like to listen to? Below is the play list for the last CD I made. Just curious.

Returns a King - From the 300 movie soundtrack
Evolution - Korn
Doomsday - Atreyu
1985 - Bowling for Soup
Through the Fire and the Flames - Dragonforce
Becoming the Bull - Atreyu
Shadow of the Day - Linkin Park
High School Never Ends - Bowling for Soup
Fever Dream - From the 300 movie soundtrack
Evil Angel - Breaking Benjamin
Hold On - Korn
A Favor House Atlantic - Coheed and Cambria
The Enemy - Godsmack
The Hot Gates - From the 300 movie soundtrack
Dance with the Devil - Breaking Benjamin
En Busca De Ti - Hector El Father
Honor - Atreyu
Hold On - Korn
I Stand Alone - Jackyl
The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin
Word Up - Korn
Ace of Spades - Motorhead

Re: Music

Mine is a little all over too. I grew up with mostly punk influences but somehow the punk scene has sprouted about 100 different sub genres. Some of my favorites include:
Hot Water Music, Blind Guardian, Avail, Bad Religion, Amon Amarth, Alkaline Trio, Between the Buried and me, Iron and Wine, Chuck Ragan, Converge, Cursive, Riddle of Steel, Dark Tranquility, The Misfits, The Decemberists, No Use for a Name, Pennywise, Norma Jean, The Draft, Rumbleseat, Johnny Cash, Bobby Hicks, Strike Anywhere, Strung Out, Turisas, Finntroll, Motorhead, I like Neil Young but I think his song "Southern Man" is the most ignorant thing ever written, Minus the Bear, mewithoutyou, Manowar, Mastadon, Job for a Cowboy, Face to Face, old AFI.

Absolutely great work out song.

I don't listen to music while I workout in the gym, but I do jam while running long distances. When I am trail running I have a M.U.L.E by Camelbak and it has an iPod pocket with a waterproof zipper. I love it.

I listen to some weird things when I run though. On my last trail jog I was listening to the Braveheart soundtrack followed by Danny Elfman's album called Serenada Schizophrana. Danny Elfman is the man - many of you will know him as the guy who does the music for some of Tim Burton's films. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000384/#composer (wfs)

Some of my favorite groups include: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Belle and Sebastian, Muse, The Beatles, Gnarls Barkley, Mates of State, Hieroglyphics, The Roots, Jay-Z, Damien Rice, Thrice, Sufjan Stevens, Miles Davis, and Sigur Ros.

The following will usually find their way into my playlist at some point.

Pearl Jam
Blind Guardian
Dream Theater
Russian Circles
Adagio

Mudvayne
Threshold
A Perfect Circle
Metallica (older stuff, newer stuff = bleh)

etc....

Re: Music

Eric,
I am so impressed to see Blind Guardian on your list, I've never met anyone out of my circle of friends who have even heard of them.

Grant,
My wife love Mates of State and Sufjan Stevens. If you are into more indie music with some electronics like Mates of State you should check out Riddle of Steel, Auto!Automatic!!, and Gil Manteras Party Dream. I'm pretty sure you'll be happy. Do a youtube search and watch their videos and check out the websites.

Ryan

Re: Music

Blind Guardian FTW!

It's nice to know others listen to them outside my nerdy circle of friends.

Do you guys also listen to Demons and Wizards or Iced Earth? Demons and Wizards is Blind Guardian + Iced Earth. They have a new album called Touched by the Crimson King which is based upon the Gunslinger Series by Stephen King. Very hard stuff.

Re: Music

Philip,
I love Demons and Wizards. Hansi could sing for about anyone and I would listen. I saw Blind Guardian a little over a year ago in Orlando and we met Hansi walking around before the show. Talk about star struck. Imagine a group of bearded 25 year old men acting like a 14 year old girl in 1985 seeing Michael Jackson on the street. I've made a tabata cd with "And then there was Silence".

Re: Music

Yeah, Demons & Wizards would fall under the "etc..." in my response above =) I have actually read most of the Dark Tower series (Gunslinger) as well. Good stuff.

I consider "A Night at the Opera" by Blind Guardian one of the best albums ever, and also one of the most underated. Ryan already mentioned the epic song "And then there was Silence" off that same album.
