    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):

    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.
    So it seems to me to be, this thing that I think I see.

    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.

    Oh yea sounds like they're getting back together (per Wiki):

    In an interview with The Village Voice, Mike Watt left open the possibility of working with Ed Crawford and George Hurley once again.[2] On January 4, 2012, Verbicide magazine posted an article detailing that, according to a reader's tip, an announcement was made at Harlow's in Sacramento, CA on December 29, 2011 that fIREHOSE will be performing at the venue on April 5, 2012.[3] fIREHOSE were also announced in the line-up for the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.[4]

    "fIREHOSE tour dates:
    April 5: Harlow’s, Sacramento, CA April 6: Doug Fir, Portland, OR April 7: Neumos, Seattle, WA April 9: Wild Buffalo House of Music, Bellingham, WA April 10: WOW Hall, Eugene, OR April 11: Slim’s, San Francisco, CA April 12: Historic Coconut Grove Ballroom, Santa Cruz, CA * April 13: Fulton 55, Fresno, CA April 14: Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Indio, CA April 17: Crescent Ballroom, Phoenix, AZ * April 18: Orpheum Theatre, Flagstaff, AZ * April 19: Plush, Tucson, AZ April 20: Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Indio, CA
    with M. Ward"

    Lastly, the Descendents will be at the Fillmore end of this month. I'll be down at wolf creek...sort of torn. Would love to see Milo still ripping those vocals. Listen and learn childrens.

    Why not, it's winter.

    Some songs are for the descent, some for the grind. I guess the choice is up to you.

    Pretty amazing stuff on this thread. I checked out the guitar player from Animals as Leaders, Tosin Abasi, and here's two I found:

    I usually listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast when I'm doing something repetitive and mindless.

    If it has to be music, The New Mastersounds are my go to band for upping the heart rate.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    Crap, I think Tosin Abasi wins this thread. His skills are on par with Eric Johnson:

    Eric Johnson - Cliffs of Dover - YouTube

    (I'm a forum novice and don't know how to embed videos)

    Such a great album! I thought it was going to be a dud since they lost their rhythm guitarist and picked up the dude from Arch Enemy, but I was wrong.

    So I'm not sure how this happened, what with your affinity for crappy dubstep and all...
    Your musical compatibility with jasonvelocity is SUPER
    The older I get, the faster I was.
