    what type of music do you listen to??

    whether it's on the trail, to the trail, home from the trail, wishing you were going to the trails, on roads, whatever. Just curious as to what you fellow riders are jamming to. To do so my favorite thing about forums....a POLL!

    oh ya, i chose heavy metal. I do like to listen to almost every kind of music but listen to double bass and blast beats with vocals to match.

    Hmmmmm........no category for jazz. That's what I listen to in the car, in addition to classical and NPR.

    No music while riding. I like the quiet, the sound of the trail under my tires, the sound of the mechs, and the sound of my own breathing.

    Sometimes classic rock while working (carpentry).

    Mostly metal, with some 80's-90's punk. And once in a while I get in a weird mood and put on some pop-punk. (Oooh...and there goes all my music cred!) No matter what it is, I set my equalizer like some basshead hip-hop or techno fan would. Totally inappropriate for the music, but I grew up in a house with a bass-loving dad and got so used to extra bass that normal levels of bass sound empty to me. I don't ride with it though; I enjoy the ambience while on the trail.

    VanHalen, Jack Johnson, Aerosm, Plumb, Skynard, SRV, Chris Duarte, Kravitz, Earthsuit, Brian Setzer

    Rock / metal Not speed metal...it has to have some fluidity...Anthrax Bee'z,

    Rock/with a HipHop flair

    Love guitar oriented music w/ some craZ fly beats laid down in the b.ground.

    Big fan of modern acoustic fingerstyle...none of that classical crap.




    I also really like Brad Paisley and George Jones...that's about the only country I like. Dunno why I like George...probably b/c of growing up listening to it w/ Dad. Brad is a sick guitarist.


    Some other random crap too.

    Where is the POLKA selection?
    If it looks like the $3000 bikes but costs less than a decent helmet, it probably isn't a wise investment.

    My tastes are pretty eclectic. Right now I'm mostly into:
    Switchfoot, Offspring, the Fray, Clutch, Bowling for Soup, Smashmouth, Finger Eleven, Simple Plan, P.O.D., Nickelback, etc.

    For classic rock - - mostly Boston, Molly Hatchet, Skynyrd, BTO, Styx, Foreigner, Journey, Kansas, Yes, etc.

    I'm a rabid surf and car music fan still: Jan & Dean, Beach Boys, Ripcords, Ronnie & the Daytonas, The Sunrays, etc.

    And I like George Strait, The Gatlins and the Statler Brothers. What can I say?

    Oh, and Ed - - speaking of Anthrax: Fueled is still one of my all-time favorite cuts. Kinda my riding theme song: "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger."

    Watershed is 54 minutes and 58 seconds long and is 7 tracks long and is one of their shorter releases. The previous release was one hour, six minutes and 46 seconds long at 8 tracks.

    Well, since there was no entry for Classical or Jazz I voted "OLD stuff, 60's and before" since most Classical and a significant portion of Jazz was written or recorded WELL before the 1960's. In the case of classical most of it was written before the 1860's!

    Instrumental jazz when I have a choice and there's no family along to complain about my music choices. Next choice is classic rock, and some limited choices from the country scene (mostly female voices :-). Since no choice for jazz, I chose not to vote.

    ZZ Top, Creedance, Blue Oyster Cult, Huey Lewis, MC Hammer, Donna Summers, Kansas (the band, not the state), Journey, Aero Smith, Sting, U2, Stones, to psych for a ride.

    Then what Kenhill said on a ride.

    You church boys, ever listen to Newsboys, Petra or DC Talk?

    I listen to just about everything except county and rap.

    Mostly classical and opera...

    As a piper, I also enjoy bagpipe music. There is some great contemporary stuff out there from the Red Hot Chili Pipers and Chris Armstrong.
