Thought it might be fun to start a music thread I guess, for some reason lately i've made much more of an effort to listen to some music on the way to jobs, on the way home, during lunch etc

What artists/music do you enjoy during/before/after and around work time?

Very recently I got introduced to:

The Cinematic Orchestra who I like to listen to on the way home from jobs

Tune-Yards for something a bit livelier during the day

and a few others...

Oh goodness, so many options!

Pantera - "Cowboys from Hell" album, perfect for all occasions
Volbeat - "Beyond Hell / Above Heaven" album, rockabilly meets heavy metal done by crazy European rockers
Machinehead - "The Blackening" album on a challenging day 2's drive to set.
Metallica - "Ride the Lightning" album for when you know you're gonna be wearing the rig all day.
Iwrestledabearonce - "Tastes Like Kevin Bacon" (just this song) for a frustrating company move.
Cannibal Corpse - "Hammer Smashed Face" or "Five Nails Through The Neck" for when you need to blow off some steam!
Winds of Plague - "Built for War", you're about to attempt that 5 minute oner that includes 2 quick moves, whip pans and no lock-offs! BRING IT!
Insomnium - Anything by these guys. Awesome.
Austrian Death Machine - "Total Brutal" album, great for any time you need a laugh (every song is an Arnold Schwarzeneggar quote, lead singer does an impression)
Sigur Ros - ( ) album, great drive home at the end of a long day/week/shoot.
Portishead - Portishead album, another great drive home, Beth Gibbons will keep you awake but also relax you.

And, of course.... SLAAAAAAYEEEEEEER!!!!!!

In related news, Rancid's "Out Came the Wolves" is fantastic for running/jogging/PT.

You can work out your problems on a couch. I'll work out my problems IN THE PIT.

Besides, here's an example of a well adjusted person who loves heavy metal (he's a lead singer, apparently):

when working I always listen to Hanzel Und Gretyl or my fav...Vagibrow. Can't do Portishead while working in the vest because I think of one of Cricket's routines at Jumbos...rickshaw only!

I sometimes catch myself humming "Don't stop believing" by Journey when I wait on first position, steadicam on shoulder, for everyone else to settle down. Other than this I would also vote for portishead.
