Music to play to

Just browsing around I stumbled on an old page on Thangorodrim which had a list of people's favourite music to listen to while playing *band. So I thought I'd ressurect it.
My top 5 in no order
Iron Maiden Dance Of Death
My Dying Bride Line Of Deathless King
Garbage Bleed Like Me
Paradise Lost Icon
Old Man's Child Vermin

I often play when everyone else in the house is asleep, so it tends to be deathly silence - sound down so there aren't even any beeps

Headphones?

I got into RPG's first (anyone remember warhammer fantasy roleplay?) the music came later, but the two go together. I like some more mellow music, Depeche Mode, New Order, Nick Cave, Delerium, but when i'm *banding it has to be something more aggresive (I can't imagine hacking a dragon to pieces while listening to delerium).

I only like 80's electronica (New Romantic stuff), never could understand hip hop, jungle, house, rap etc.

Its very sad I know, but the first time I ever played Angband was listening to Robert Miles, the album with Children on it. Now its totally associated with Angband, so if I want to do a proper *band session, its load up old Robert in winamp, roll me up a chump, and go kill stuff in a very un-terminator-like manner.

By pure coincidence I had my most intense ToME playing period when I was addicted to Jimi Hendrix and now I have that weird association etched in my mind - when I play ToME I think 'where's Hendrix soundtrack?' and when I listen to Hendrix I think 'where're ASCII Dragons?'

Other than that, I listen mostly to various kinds of rock and don't pay much attention to putting something special in the system for playing roguelikes. I think I only did that with King Diamond's 'Voodoo' for some priest-on-undead violence and sometimes I use Lord of the Rings soundtrack for background.

I usually listen to heavy, punk or rock music. Last times I listened Iron Maiden, The Doors and The Clash.

I like this kind of music so it's the one I have at home, it's difficult find other music in my house.

My top five could be

Iron Maiden: The best of the beast
Judas Priest: Painkiller
The Clash: London calling
Helloween: Keeper of the seven keys (both parts)
Kortatu: Azken guda dantza

But it's difficult choose just five lps or five groups.

Chalk me up as one of the fantasy fans who aren't metalheads. I never did develop a taste for metal.

I also can't listen to music while I'm trying to do something else, because if the music's good enough to listen to, it distracts me from whatever I'm doing; and if it's boring enough not to distract me, why bother playing it? So I play Angband to the tune of dead silence...

Playing a video game without listening music is impossible for me. I've got a quite a wide taste in music; at the moment, I'm listening to most often: Modest Mouse, Metric, The Pixies, The Who, The White Stripes, The Ventures, The Tragically Hip, The Tea Party, Supertramp, Sonic Youth, Simon & Garfunkle, Queen, Pearl Jam, Oscar Lopez, Nine Inch Nails, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, The Meligrove Band, The Mars Volta, Led Zepplin, Johnny Cash, James Keelaghan, Jack Johnson, Iggy Pop, Gnarls Barkley, Franz Ferdinand, Elton John, The Eagles, The Doors, Jimi Hexdrix, Damien Rice, CCR, Buddy Guy, Broken Social Scene, The Beatles, among others.

Pretty impressive list there -- you're listening to a surprising amount of "oldies" for a 19-year-old. Or do all the kids these days regularly listen to music from the '60s and '70s? It used to be that kids couldn't stand listening to their parents' music (or vice versa); I didn't know anyone in high school who listened to, say, Frank Sinatra/Bing Crosby/big band stuff, which was about 20-30 years old at that time. At least nobody who admitted to listening to it.
