I mostlty listen to metal and rock, with (while coding) a distinct preference for Grunge rock and epic/power metal (Rhapsody of Fire an Nightwish above everything). They keep me pumped and my thougt-rythm tends to improve following the music.

Sometimes I'd wish for silence but I'm in a open plan so... I have wax earplugs but they are not powerful enough and I cannot LART my obnoxious cow orkers.
