    Spin Off: Music to ride to

    With the talk of DVDs to watch while on a trainer, I'm interested to hear what music people like to listen to.

    I ride outside when ever possible. If the paved trails are clear I'll be out! Still working up my courage to ride in the snow though, so I'll be hitting the stationary bikes at the gym from time to time I'm sure and am trying to put together a playlist of songs for my iPod and phone in music mode.

    I rarely spin to playlists, but the one playlist I've created for that purpose has several of the more upbeat Mumford and Sons songs on it. Kind of an Irish rock-a-billy sound with a twist of angst.

    Whatever's playing on the gym's overhead speakers and the sound of my own heavy breathing.

    Wait, how about some Oasis?

    System of a Down and Godsmack are on my ipod and never get skipped. I can pedal really fast on a stationary bike at the gym to them.

    I rarely listen to music whilst riding, but this always gets me jacked up in the car on the way to the trailhead.

    Whoa! I just watched the Animals as Leaders video....those guys shred hard! And, on 8 string guitars!

    It kind of reminded me of Protest the Hero (who also shred hard):

    This is good! Can't wait to get out and spin with it. Thanks for sharing.

    Lately I have strayed from my norm of punk, and metal to stuff I can totally zone out to:
    Benny Benassi
    Daft punk
    Skrillex
    Deadmau5
    3OH3!
    and whatever pandora decides for me.

    Holy carp. Just watched "CAFO". What an onslaught of technique. Hardest working drummer on the planet---at 4:00 he got to rest his nonstop feet banging on the double bass drums. Glad there wasn't any vocals.

    Now I'm gonna try "Animals as Leaders Radio" on Pandora.

    Another old punk here:

    NOFX
    Anti-Flag
    Propagandhi
    Lagwagan


    I use Spotify for indoor workouts a lot. I hate stopping to flag some ******** song that pandora always decides you might like - right when you are hitting a nice groove.

    Hella

    Lightning Bolt


    Lately, I've had Lungfish and Daniel Daniel Higgs - Leontocephaline Rhapsody - YouTube playing before my rides.
