kill music. Marilyn Manson, Drowning Pool, Deftones, Metallica, Rammstein- basically the Matrix soundtrack.
I don't know why, it just makes me feel really leet (i cant stand leetspeak). I dunno. I guess it helps that my favorite band is metallica... currently listening to 'the unnamed feeling' on the st. anger album.

That's interesting, you're about the first person who I've come across who likes St Anger. I wasn't impressed with that single they released from that, and that's coming from someone who liked all their previous stuff, including Load/Reload and S&M, which displeased some hard core fans. Oh, and I usually like "nu-metal", or whatever you call that genre.

It's been well established that I have no taste.

For instance, take my wife. Please. [Wink]

Your sentence is a little ambiguous.. are you suggesting that we take your wife for an example of your poor taste, or are you suggesting we actually TAKE your wife?

Perhaps both? [Wink]

Well, I can think of at least three potential meanings. Working out the intended one, if any, is left as an exercise for the reader.

Depends wether i'm coding at home or at work. At work we got a music server in our office where everyone uploaded his fav music so we got everything from Blues to Rock to Speed/Goth/Folk Metal to Punk to (some weird dark electronic stuff i don't really know how to call) to plain noise. And of course the constant screaming of all the guys in the other offices to turn that bloody noise down =]
When by myself i prefer anything that rocks, or rather, anything that makes me want to move, because moving helps me think.
And i also prefer coding at night. I think it's a temprature thing, because i'm quite intolerant to warmth. If been known to code all night with the windows open in December, when it's really COLD here

I used to code to early Genesis. When Peter Gabriel was still with them. [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

I'm not sure why but it seemed to work.

Thanks to closed captioning, I know that Peter Gabriel is on the remake version of "Shall We Dance" soundtrack. So of course I had to think of all of the old fogies on here who listen to him. [Wink]

Hmmm... while coding i listen to the compleate opposite of what i would listen to. I like rave and trance coz it has no lyrics that distract me. I also listen to the matrix soundtrack in loop, i dunno why but it does the trick.
I also love Y. Malmstein, Marilyn M., GnR, Metallica, Ozzy, and Green Day has also become one of my favourites (blvd. of broken dreams and jesus of suburbia rock ).

Music in the style of Orbital, Underworld, Juno Reactor work well for me. I find lyrics can be distracting sometimes, especially if they're funny or ridiculous, e.g. Goldie Lookin Chain is arguably the hardest music to code to! [Smile]

Dark electronic could possible equal darkwave...

I assume you don't mean industrial..

I code to Slayer's Reign in Blood on 5 repeats. After that, it plays a celine dion song so i know to stop and go get food/drink/go to toilet/vomit at celine dion song.

Of course, I don't do much coding anymore since i decided that IT is complete crap and I can earn more being homeless.

Industrial. Front Line Assembly, Einsturezende Neubauten (earlier stuff mainly, but also Perpetuum Mobile), Skinny Puppy, Decoded Feedback, et cetera, et cetera. Also occasionally prog rock in various forms - Liquid Tension Experiment, The Floyd, A Perfect Circle, Therion, more Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, and so on.

Pretty much what I listen to anyway, minus the classic rock and metal.

Many people who otherwise don't like electronic music seem to prefer it as for coding music.

Myself, I have to recommend Frederik Schiko's "Soviel an zartlichkeit". I can listen it on a loop for hours.

I discovered it on the www.asciiporn.org radio. Good coding bleepy stuff there.

Hell, I still code to early (and later) Genesis. Come to think of it, I've got Peter Gabriel playing right now ("Blood of Eden" from the Secret World Live album...a duet with Paula Cole). [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

Enya or Clannad for php. Queen or The Orb for messing around trying to make games.

I think that you need something soothing when designing websites, to convey the mood. Maybe. Like supermarket music. Perhaps.

Elevator music is where it's at: linkity link


I do agree with you, when am designing if i have anything but soothing music i get completely distracted, i end up on the web, into some forum, completely forgetting about what i was doing, kinda like what i'm doing right now, oopsies

For a long time now I've listened to Delerium's "Karma" CD as my coding tunage of choice. Anything ambient with few or no words works, though.
