I find 50s music great for winding down after a tiring ride. Doris Day is my favorite.

Riders on the storm

I have been listening to a lot of R.E.M. lately. Not quite sure why but always good stuff. Also finally decided to listen to the Chats, it kept showing up in my Youtube (pub) feed but for whatever dumb reason I said, naw. How wrong I was to be on Smoko at the time.

Y'all need to listen to more family friendly country music:

God Bless Wheeler Walker Jr., the finest country musician to ever grace this earth.

On The Run - Electrosoul System

pretty drum and bass makes my pedals spin!

I've recently been introduced to Shakey Graves, Tyler Childers and Colter Wall. Far and away better than pop country.

Thank you, I already feel very at home on this forum. When reading through the backlog of music I see that the classics are well represented, I listen to the classical channel on the radio when I drive to keep the road rage in check(I drive a service van for work which gets shafted and cut off constantly by people in much more of a hurry than me). So when I actually get to pedal I've got so much lead in my pencil that I like some music that's moving as fast as I am.

Hello fellow Nebraskan fixed rider! There's 3 of us that I can account for now.

Fiona Apple's new album. It's really weird and really good.

I have some Necromantix somewhere in my CD collection, along with the Guana Batz and the Meteors from a psychobilly phase I went through. I've seen the Meteors and the Reverend Horton Heat live. However, as I've got older, I've got more into the "traditional" rockabilly from the Sun era: Carl Perkins, Charlie Feathers, Sony Fisher, Sonny Burgess etc.

The original rockabilly was simple and cheerful, and good dance music. It grew out of the music played by rural people in the south. Many of the early performers really were from sharecropping families. The later stuff from the "revival" is more urban with its roots in punk, and a conscious pastiche of aspects of the original: good but not as spontaneous. Or maybe I'm talking nonsense.

Be that as it may, you may wish to look up Wayne Hancock, known by some as the modern Hank Williams. He is very good indeed, and borrows from hillbilly, rockabilly, blues and jazz. Here's one of his more Hank-like tracks.

Thanks. I may try that.

HW3 is a very versatile musician and worth listening to. I prefer him to Junior (his dad) but I love the simplicity and joyfulness of the original Hank — somehow joyful even when it's a sad song.

Two other favourites from "back then": Glen Glenn, and Bill Browning. They're not as well known as others from that era, but they each did a handful of truly great records.

The Stollng Rones
Today on my ride, I listened to Exile on Main Street, Some Girls and Aftermath by the stones.

There are some fab photos of Keef riding bicycles. Newbie - I canít post photos yet

Spent the day listening to a lot of Ozzy Osborne, Led Zeppelin and A Tribe Called Quest. Some Miriam Makeba and a little Desmond Dekker.

Love me some Hank III and original Hank. Hank Jr. is garbage and it is sad he shares lineage with real Hank and Hank III I guess talent and brains skipped a generation.

Arson Anthem is excellent good solid hardcore. Assjack also good. I haven't really seen much from III that I dislike. Shame his father had to suck so bad.

I haven't been able to listen to any tunes while riding ever since I got a new phone without a 3.5mm jack but I tend to lean pretty heavy into funk when cycling (well any time, really) but also plenty of electronic music.

Favorites for riding:
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
The Polish Ambassador
The Disco Biscuits

I try to keep it lighthearted but depending on the mood, good metal music (Between the Buried and Me, Eluveitie, Opeth, Iron Maiden) help me keep up an aggressive cadence.

I've been enjoying the mixes Fatboy Slim has been putting up these last few weeks. Kind of all over the place, genre-wise.

I am currently listening to The Weakerthans Fallow album. Perfect music to finish up work and do some bike forums posting.

My yearly ritual:

Timbuk 3: Edge of Allegiance

I'm not a fan of Rap music, the attitude of the artists and their culture (perceived in videos etc) but I recently started listening to Post Malone and discovered that I liked a few of his "older" songs without knowing he was the artist.
I guess you're never too old to try something different/new......
