What's The Best Coding Music?

What a simple question. My personal answer is: it’s whatever I feel like rocking out to at the time I start (Usually Metallica or AC/DC). So, in order to determine the most popular genre of coding music I set out onto the @pineheadtv twitter account and asked there. I’m actually somewhat amazed at the universal response that was received. If you were one of those who posted back, you’re sure to find your post below and THANK YOU for contributing.

If you must know the answer now it’s Metal, Punk, and Rock. Let’s look at the responses, oh, and a lot of responses included video links!

Combination of Nirvana/Pearl Jam/Soundgarden/Bush/Beck, a nice grungy mix. Rather something calmer for testing, tho’.
@Femme_Mal

Folk metal or heavy metal. Rock is fine too 🙂
@shaikadzari

Heavy metal.

TRON soundtrack by Daft Punk

“Fucking hostile”(Pantera) use to boost me up a lot. Other songs from Pantera, Slayer, Sepultura and Metallica do the same.
@ubuntroll

I second that! RT @aknosis: @pineheadtv TRON soundtrack by Daft Punk

I like to code to Breathe Carolina (the artist) and Daughtry and Lifehouse. Weird, I know.

At the end of the day, your favorite music is whatever motivates you to rock out some code. However, thanks to the Pinehead community on Twitter now you have some more ideas to help you along. Happy Coding!
