I am old school, so I listen to aggressive, speed metal/heavy metal tunes at the gym for the most part. Slayer, Celtic Frost, Black Sabbath, Razor, Venom.. but also some older Rush and Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix too. I have a lot of good jazz on my ipod, but usually ff past it when I am working out."

One of my all time favorites to listen to is a band called Connie Price and the Keystones. They've got a lot of old school funk beats without the high pitched 70s funk vocals, which just don't mesh with training well. There's some long instrumental ones, which I think are the best for training. The songs have great rhythm and flow for stickfighting drills. Here's a few that you should listen to:

Actually, I did jam my thumb, but that was running to our house in torrential rain, back from Alabama and 36 hours of trains/busses carrying luggage from the station, running in pimp shoes and dress pants. I went to the subsequent throwdown and did a horrible kicks only session with Strikestanian, who has an upcoming ammy title fight.
He owed me though, I got him here...set to another beat I love.
