    Cool Music

    After the work is done, and you are done reading (or for some of you writing) your books, what do the good people of TE listen to (as far as music)? Who are some of your favorite artist?

    Me I like most all types of music (anything but country). I have many artist I like but I have a soft spot for System of a Down because Steal This AlBUlM and Toxicity introduced me to Metal and Rock as a whole.

    Why did you have to limit it to music -- I love the Scott Morris CCIE Audio Bootcamps and the old INE CCIE Audios by "The Brians."

    But for a "musical break" I support one of TechExams finest

    BTW thats me on the track.
    The Hollow and Life's Work are also favorites (along with Here to help) from that album.

    I'll also set the ripped Scrubs Soundtracks (minus some of the "silly stuff") to random play -- or let Pandora mix "my music" on my Roku. Otherwise I have a couple of "mix memory cards/sticks" I'll play on my laptop when I need a musical break.

    I listen to a pretty wide range. In the car's 4 disk changer, I have the new prodigy CD, a billy talent mix, the new Kid Cudi CD, and Daft punk's homework.


    When at home/on the computer/studying/labbing, its usually the Electro House channel on DI.FM.

    My musical tastes are somewhat eclectic. If y'all could see my iTunes library, you'd probably be like 'wtf?'. I can go from listening to Pantera to Bach to the Imperial March to Avril Lavigne. About the only constant, on weekdays anyway, is that I'll be listening to the Dave Ramsey podcast at one point or another

    Anything by Nuno Bettencourt. The latest Extreme album is a bit patchy though.

    And anything Queen did in the '70s.

    Oh man.. I listen to a lot of dirty south, hustler music in between studying for certifications. All the stupid songs where they talk about making money off of hustling their dope. I find it very motivating. Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Lil Boosie, Plies, Rick Ross, Trick Daddy, Lil Wayne, etc.

    If I had a theme song for my certification endeavors, it would be: TI - Big things poppin, Little things stoppin. In other words, focus on the big things (studying for certs), and stop the little things (wasting time on games and surfing). Haha

    Oh - and when doing labs, you gotta throw on some techno/trance music and enter the matrix. just sayin'

    Nuno is THE MAN! Phenomenal guitarist!

    Anywho, I'm pretty eclectic as well, and who I'm listening to changes all the time. Current bands/artists I'm listening to:

    RX Bandits - Mandala
    Mars Volta - Octahedron
    Regina Spektor - Far
    Alicia Keys - Element of Freedom
    Neko Case - Middle Cyclone, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
    Charlotte Martin - Orphans
    Muse - The Resistance

    Yea I can listen to Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and a few other rappers talking about coming up. There's no way I could listen to Gucci Mane or the rest though without losing concentration, they don't enunciate their words that good.

    I'm a heavy metal person also, glad to see a lot of us post on the boards. As for bands, Soilwork, Mudvayne, Violent Work of Art, ******* Razors, Psychostick, Dry Kill Logic, Fear Factory, Five Finger Death Punch, Downthesun, As I Lay Dying, Chimaira, Children of Bordom, Coal Chamber, Crossbreed. I could probably keep going but I think thats enough.

    My favorite internet radio station for you guys that are into metal: Hard Rock Radio and Metal Radio - Interviews - Photos - Videos - News - chroniXradio.com

    Lately, it's been Interpol, The xx, Arctic Monkeys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Franz Ferdinand, and Muse.

    My iPhone is filled with lots of 80s college rock, 90s grunge, and recent indie stuff with a splash of metal....I'm surprised to see Psychostick up there on someone's list...they're hilarious, and the music is above average.

    A little of everything myself. Lately it's been a variety of Avenged Sevenfold (sucks their drummer just died), Breaking Benjamin, Five Finger Death Punch, Three Days Grace, The Eels, Against Me, Hed PE, James Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Newton Faulkner, NOFX, and Billy Talent showing up on the playlist most often.

    I tend to focus more on a particular genre now and then and rotate throughout the year and depending on my mood.
