    ANyhtiing ranging from Wagner (The Ride of the Valkyries) to the Sex Pistols and Dead Kennedy's. By the way, the DK's are great for short wind sprints with their 200 BPM stuff.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Last year I started a thread with a similar intent on the Fifty Plus Forum, "Cycling Playlist Exchange" in which I proposed subscribers to put their playlists on their personal profile:

    http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...aylist-Exchang

    You can see my entire list of about 250 songs on my own profile in the visitor message section. In the OP of that thread I explain how to do it. My list is very different from what I've seen here; it's Big Band and Rock Golden Oldies, almost all before 1980.

    I've been riding and listening (in and out of traffic) since the 70s. MP3 players are a vast improvement over that old transistor radio and ear piece.

    My current playlist includes:

    Heart
    Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Outlaws
    Led Zeppelin
    Aerosmith
    Journey
    Creed
    Scorpions
    3 Doors Down
    Pink Floyd
    Al Stewart
    Marshall Tucker Band
    Kiss
    America
    Eagles

    If any of you like Horn bands - the old "Chase" album with "Open up Wide" and others is excellent. Tower of Power also works for me. For beastly hills - nothing compares to "Doobie Brothers - Live at Red Rocks" - to keep up your tempo!

    I don't listen when I ride, but when I go running I pretty much listen to Darkest Hour and nothing else. I went through a short Protest the Hero or Every Time I Die phase, but then it was back to Darkest Hour.

    By the way...did someone really mention One King Down???? Wow, there's a name I haven't heard in awhile.

    Yep. They're part of my "church metal" playlist.

    They were based out of Albany, which about twenty minutes from where I live. I'm pretty sure I saw them live once, I went to a bunch of shows when I around the time they were big. Favorite though was As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, God Forbid, Shadows Fall, with Mudvayne headlining. Mudvayne was really bad though, we left during their show, with about half the crowd. But man did the rest put on an awesome show. I've never seen a pit reach the soundboard at any show until then.

    Taking Back Sunday puts on an awesome show as well, if your into that. I'm into a wide variety of stuff, and can appreciate a wide genre of music, except modern country (my favorite example of this garbage is "we can go slow or we can go faster, you and me on my john deere tractor".) I live surrounded by farms and won't listen to that stuff. Either will my girlfriend who lives on a farm. Lol.

    "International Harvester" by Craig Morgan isn't a bad one when you're riding through farming country. A good few parallels in there with the combine driver laughing while drivers get mad that he can't go any faster.
