    Now, I NEED a New Drug!

    OH, I forgot the best climbing song ever, KC and the Sunshine Band, Shake UR Booty!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I personally wouldn't listen to music whilst riding. I too also enjoy the tranquil around me riding. If I were riding though with music, I'd definitely put on some old AFI, Op Ivy, Pennywise, Einherjer (Finnsh metal) and Summoning (would be perfect for overlooking the landscape resting) to get the ball rolling

    I was out on my fixed gear the other day and was having fun with Pandora. This cut came on and I went into superhuman mode. Forreals.

    I like the sound of the wind and tyres on the road. I don't need music to ride with. But, if I did I suspect I'd load up my MP3 player with Pink Floyd's "pulse" as a start. I'd follow it with a bunch of classic queen albums and then some Irish music. I also think that the music that has come out since 1990 has been less than stellar. I must be getting old.

    Since my player is plugged in & charging, let's see what I currently have in there:

    Negazione - 'Lo Spirito Continua'
    Total Fury - '13 Songs'
    Double Negative - 'Daydream Nation'
    AC4 - 'AC4'
    OFF! - 'First 4 EPs'
    Ufomammut - 'Godlike Snake'
    G. Love & Special Sauce - assorted mix of my favorite jams
    Babar Luck - 'Frankenstanee'
    Unsane - 'Wreck'

    I listen sometimes on long boring climbs, but mostly when I'm pounding pavement - running errands or going places (like tomorrow nite, when Peelander-Z is in town).
    Silence on the downhills, so I can hear when flats happen, and when riding in groups.
    Who cares what your bike weighs, just ride it!

    Nah, you're not getting old. A comment like that indicates that you got old. There is plenty of great music from 1990 and afterwards. Sometimes you just need to dig a little for it.

    Being somewhat of a geek, I had some pretty nerdy stuff on my ipod, like movie soundtracks. Sometimes they convey a sense of urgency, or like you're being chased by a T-rex...

    Huey Lewis

    Now that is music!

    I'd pedal to all that -- gettin' my trail romp on with "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (long version) would be EPIC!

    For sure, go, particularly if you like a kick ass live show. Based on the other stuff you posted in this thread, methinks you'd dig them. Plugged in, acoustic, doing their own stuff, whatever, they rock. They do the once in-a-while amazing cover of something as well. The have a cover of The Doors "Waiting for the Sun" that is ****ing awesome.

    Sadly, now being on the other side of the country means it's a bit tough for me to see them... They get up into WA and down into CA, but that's about as far as they go. Haven't been to a show in a few years, but they never disappoint.

    The only other folks I've like better Live were Sleater-Kinney with the Black Keys a few years ago in Prividence, RI. and Queensryche on the operation Mindcrime tour waaaaaay back in 90-91. Melted. My. Brain.
