I turn on the TV, crank up the surround sound, and tune to an XM Radio channel I get with my DirecTV service: Lithium. All 90's grunge, all the time...

Noone else puts on traditional German folk music while smoking a pipe and doing a 4 hour triple decoction mash? I don't do that either..

Coheed and Cambria, just because it's a good bet I'll be listening to them at any given point, but also The Who, Hendrix, etc. It seems to be appropriate for brewing, grilling and so on.

Oh, and as the people who listened to my first AG brewcast can tell you, I'm a fan of Lemon Jelly and other ambient/electronica/whatever music.

I generally listen to classic rock and some contemporary rock. Lately I've been on a Dragonforce, Hammerfall, Nightwish,... kick.

Everything except country and rap. Except I am usually brewing with a friend who's musical tastes are VERY different from mine, and we are usually chatting away and the music would be in the way. I turn off the tunes out of respect for his differing tastes.

It would be nice if we could listen to a brewing podcast or something, but he'd just ignore it and start chatting about something else.

Stuff I normally listen to:

Pink Floyd
Led Zep
Dr. Horrible (guilty pleasure) and Commentary!
Van Halen
Styx
Black Eyed Peas
Dream Theater
Weird Al (isn't it time for a new album?)
Joe Satriani
Steve Vai
Anything with awsum guitar

Usually Phish, but always a live concert no matter the band. They're long and I don't have to worry about picking more music.

Edcculus - definitely jealous. Just finished listening to the last of the Hampton shows. Nice to see them come back strong after going out so poorly at Coventry.

I could maybe brew with you for like half a day. Will Oldham is totally my favorite ever, I've brewed to Shellac, Sebadoh, and Unwound,and I will occasionally listen to Don Cab, but it gets a little repetitive for a guy like me who likes loud guitars.

As for the other stuff you have listed, eh. I like Miles Davis, but I wouldn't listen to him while brewing and Zeppelin can **** right off back to hell. :)

Irish folk music close enough? And cigars... I have 12hrs of it on the ipod... I feel I'm inspiring the fledgling brew with some proper attidude...

HUH? What is there not to like about Zep? Ok, some of the songs don't do it for me, but they are very diverse. I can only imagine what they sound like in a "smokey" environment...

And Stoutfan, I have been wanting to hear what Dragonforce is all about. I heard their guitar is very good. Reminds me to get on the web and look them up!

+1 on the live shows. :mug:

For me, it's usually Widespread Panic, The Dead or Yonder Mountain String Band. It gets me in a great groove and brings back memories of the shows.

I absolutely loathe the vocals. Pure wanking annoyance.

Yes Dr Horrible! I've worn my Captain Hammer shirt to a bunch of homebrewing events, but no one has picked up on it yet :(

I like the idea of live shows. I'll definitely have to use Live at Leeds during my next batch.

This is the one. Freeze ray. Tell your friends.

If you have not done so, you NEED to buy the DVD and hear the Commentary! songs. I have a few copies of the songs ripped so we can sing along in the house and car. Freakin addictive!

I hope this doesn't result in me having to turn in my man card...

I have been looking for a shirt that says, "The Hammer is my P e n i s." :D

Oh please, I've bought that three times. First when it was only available on iTunes, then I got the cd from Amazon mp3, and finally I got 'my wife' the DVD for Christmas. You used to be able to get shirts from Jinx but looking now they seem to be gone.

I think to bring this back on topic I need to listen to it next time I brew. Oh shucks.

I rate all the songs on my iPod.
I delete anything that gets a 1 or 2.

I have a playlist for the 3, 4, and 5 star songs.

My 5 star song list has around 800 songs. So I just rock that on shuffle.
Anything might come up.
Iron Maiden
Aesop Rock
Woodie Guthrie
Wilhelm Scream
Ben Folds

Its awesome, and random, and I brew best that way.
