At last, a list post that doesn't make me want to kill someone.

Depends what I'm doing.

If I need to think then nothing too aggressive, if I'm coding stuff from 
a design then I bring out the block-rocking-beats.

So, hmm, at the moment, Clapton, REM, Neil Young, Paul Weller and Dire 
Straits for the thinking and Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, NIN, Queen, Black 
Crowes, Killers and Gnarls Barkley for the hacking.

But I normally just have my music on shuffle and skip things if they 
disturb my current mindset.
