    I love Elevator music. I tend to block out any music when training.

    I wish either of my gyms would play classical while training. However, I think I would want to lean more towards the epic for that purpose (think Atterberg No 3 or Shostakovich No 10)

    I wish I could actually listen to (so-called) classical music while working out at home. However, due to having to analyze a lot of that stuff I can't really hear it anymore without analyzing it.

    Sounds stupid, I know.

    EDIT: I really like when someone plays German hip hop during thaiboxing training. It's great to make fun of, so I'm not as obstinate.

    If it's my choice I don't put on any music, but in places I've trained / train it there's been a variety:
    one Eminem album on repeat ( which made me develop a kind of Pavlovian response to Stan);
    silence in a few places;
    classical music station on the radio;
    i-pod mix on shuffle including 80's rock and cheese as well as the infamous Bodies.

    Ah, yeah I feel you there. Some kid gangsta wanna-be crap in German (Bushido, Farid Bang etc.) and I feel like laughing. Dunno if that would be good for training though ;)

    Well, what can I say. I'm at my best when I can make fun of things.

    Related to this thread, I was just thinking that I'd love to beat someone up to the Moonlight Sonata.

    Bas Rutten's MMA workout.
    Danzig and Queens of the Stone Age seem to flow into my weight lifting, although I left shuffle on one day and wound up with Mozart's Requiem Mass.. It was surprising how well it worked for it. Running I still wind up calling cadence in my head or out loud.

    Our gym seems to play mostly hip-hop, punk, and 3rd wave ska. I've come to quite enjoy it.

    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I played in a metal band for 5 years, church band for 2, and jazz for 3. And I'm now learning to mix and dj. I play dub step in my gym because one time I played notorious biggie and everyone was more laughing at the lyrics than working out. I play dub step, I get motivated and girls like it too hell everyone does. Btw metal core is dying (pig squealing since 2003)(studying music theory since 2004).

    I like to exercise in silence but when I shadowbox it has to be angry metal or anyone from the Wu Tang Clan.
