What do you listen to when riding?

I love to listen to Mitch Murder when I'm riding. 80s style just seems right when I'm cruising along. Some people say listening to music is a distraction on the road...thoughts, comments?

Metal new and old. Mushroomhead, LOG, ATR, FFDP and Otep.... Throw in some older Overkill, Testament and then Volbeat, 3 Doors Down, Rammstein, and Rage against the Machine for variety.

I need to update it.

I listen to the radio as it's easy to access on my headset. Otherwise whatever is new is what's playing.

Rarely sometimes I'll listen to techno/rapcore/metal/rock. I do find music to be distracting, but sometimes I'll enjoy some music on a much longer ride somewhere not around town. The earbuds will muzzle the exhaust so I'm not deaf after riding the expressway too. Most of the time I'm not paying attention to anything but the riding.

I listen to what's going on around me. Enabling me to be a safer, more defensive rider.

I always found it odd how people think it's any different than listening to music in your car

It's not any different. But the truth is when you're driving a car music can be just as distracting as it is when you ride. Not to mention the fact that most people wear ear buds that are naturally noise canceling there's a reason it's illegal and it's not just cause we are a bunch of hooligans kids and they don't like all of our "rock music".

I can attest to just how entranced you can get when driving in traffic. Combination of exhaustion after a long day at work, music to occupy the mind and the monotony of traffic. When riding, just a millisecond of a delay in reaction can be the difference between life and death. That's not a risk I take.

Exactly what Ldn said. I too think that I have to stay much more cautious on my bike than in my car. Slight mistakes in car won't do any harm but same on a bike could be life or death. Not that I have never done it, I used to but I quit.

I listen to classic rock, newish rock and some choice rap. One headphone in, one out. That way I can hear music and my surroundings.

Very very good point, but I am genuinely curious about your opinion on speakers instead of ear buds, if it changes at all. Example, any cruiser you see around with built in audio ect ect

Memphis May Fire, August Burns Red, Sublime w/ Rome, 311, etc etc.

For me, listening to music while riding, keeps me more concentrated and alert.

Depends on my mood. No real set list just whatever I feel like listening to before taking off. Sometimes I listen to radio.

To the people saying "I only listen to what's going on around me" please don't hurt yourself patting yourselves on the back.

To those of us who realize you can't hear squat going on around you(aside from a loud siren) while wearing a full face helmet I listen to a variety of music on my Sena bluetooth. Some of the best "get your motor running" music for me is 70's/80's rock as well as some trance. IMO on of the best songs is "Go Your Own Way" by Fleetwood Mac, dunno why, but that opening riff and really the whole song just gives me goosebumps. And speaking of "get your motor running" I'm sure if I had "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf it'd be on a constant loop as well.

Nothing but my bike. Riding is time to disconnect from all this electronic BS.

Agreed (in part with) dehingst: "riding is time to disconnect" (and thus the earplugs). However, every now and then when my analog GPS is screwy, I listen to voice directions from this sexy female voice with a British accent "telling" me to take the next right.

Maybe listening to trance with your ear buds has wrecked your hearing and that is why you can't hear anything in your helmet. Maybe not.

lol, we're not talking about house or jungle. I try to listen to what's classified more as "electronic pop" stuff like Tiesto, Above and Beyond, ATB, Chicane, Morgan Page, Armin van Buuren... smooth beats with vocals(usually female).

If I was listening to house or jungle then, yes, I'm sure I would be deaf.

As for ear buds, don't believe in them as they would completely take away hearing ability, however, as I've seen on other threads about this and experienced first-hand it's near impossible to hear anything but wind and your own engine w/ a full-face(or even closed modular) helmet at freeway speeds.
