I'm just curious...
For me, it rotates between Millencollin, The Streets, MC Chris, listening to HGTV or the Food Network since that's the only channels we get...
Rock & Roll Soldiers
Bowling for Soup
Nightwish, Yoko Kanno, Boa, RES, and Blueman's Group
(liquid) Drum & Bass, Lounge, Deep House, Brazilian Rock, UK Garage

If I started my playlist from the very beginning and let it run through all the songs, it would be 17 days before it reached the last track. Tasty!
Permanent items in my I Tunes:
Miss Kittin & the Hacker
M83 (This is the very hot)
Metal Gear Solid 2 OST
His Infernal Majesty
Eric Serra (5th Element OST and Leon OST)
Daft Punk(All of them!They Rock!)
To name a few.
I also listen to a lot of internet radios like Housemusique,Jazzmusique,BeatBlender,Bassdrive,Dj FM Goa/Psy-Trance
DON'T CLICK THIS
Simon & Garfunkel. anything else is just uncivilized.
No man should be less than what he is.
it goes on and on...
while doing thumbs for my webcomic I exclusively listen to Led Zeppelin III, set to loop. Since that's it and that's all, I'll list the tracks.
Since I've Been Loving You
Out on the Tiles
Gallows Pole (I call this one "Hangman" in my head")
That's the Way
Hats off to Roy Harper
Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix on audio book as read by Jim Dale!
All depends on what I wanna draw ^_^
My playlist is usually about 50% of OC remixes (Video Game remixes)
and the rest goes from Beck to Daft punk and anything inbetween...sept country...usually just draw what the song plants in my head for practice.
Why did kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
Nine Inch Nails
A Perfect Circle
The Deftones (my own summer, shove it... on repeat... for hours.)
Marilyn Manson (Antichrist Svperstar, especially. on repeat. for hours.)
~and on and on and on
i listen to a lot of audiobooks when I draw... it's cool, i feel like i'm multitasking.
but musically, lately-
handsome boy modeling school
just random shit... my musical moods vary quite a bit when i'm feeling creative.
oh many different things... Mostly jazz and punk cause they help me to concentrate and make me happy.
Sometimes also a bit louder stuff (metal or more aggressive punk).
favorite bands while drawing are at the moment:
System of a Down
everything reggae & marley (often combined with marleyhuana).
alternative, rock, punk etc etc
oh ya, and classic music.
i really got into puccini, verdi and rossini lately.
razorlight, the libertines, interpol, coldplay, muse, massive attack, opm, greenday, radiohead, the white stripes, offspring......
bob marley, patrice, gentleman, burning spear, black uhuru, zoot woman, portishead....
oh and some hip hop as well.. for example :
talib kweli, the roots, the streets, curse
oh i forgot JAZZZZZZ!!!!
good ol miles davis, dave brubeck quartet and so on.
and i LOVE funk/jazz..

Finally ripped some of my CDs into iTunes last night, here's an updated list.
All of AFI
The Nerve Agents
Ensiferum (one of the best conceptual metal bands ever... they play real viking metal... songs about wenches and pillaging and battles.. it's a trip)
and I've officially added that song from the laser grid scene in Ocean's Twelve.
A slew of bands on Tooth & Nail and SolidState records.
i try to play something that fits to the mood of my drawing... so there's a lot of variety in what i listen to.
i mostly listen to rock music.
and if i don't listen to that i listen to whatever is on my pc or sometimes knac.com
can range from madonna to deftones to jamiroquai to basement jaxx to rage against the machine to metallica to incubus to anything.
sometimes i also enjoy a good classical cd (beethoven), destiny's child(esp.kelly rowland),sugababes or some jazz.
Lately - Been listening to a wierd mix while I work
Usually starts with some badass Prefuse 73 -
then chill out with some badass composer like Steve Reich or Phillip Glass
then pump it up with some Buzzcocks or Motorhead
then mix in some Fourtet...quite a talent
Then perhaps I'll treat the audio to some Squarepusher or AphexTwin
I'm kinda singleminded.... I like music while I work but I never remember it.
Fall of Troy
Poison the Well
The Fucking Champs
the first Taproot cd
and Sometimes other stuff:
boards of canada
it's usually one extreme or the other, they don't mix well.
Iron Maiden yes!!
normally I don't listen to music, it's sort of a distraction to me sometimes. If it's quietand in the background then it's ok. I like lounge/soft house/jazz. obscure rock bands.
N & B
Someone once told be that the ultimate abstract art is music which is purely instrumental. I came to find out that some of my best ideas come from music that influences me in a manner other than literally. Thus, I try to listen to music that is more melodic, if not entirely without lyrics.
Some of my favorites include:
Godspeed You Black Emperor
Sigur Ros (Lyrics often unintelligible due to either language, or the volume at which they are sung. Also, lead singers' voice becomes an instrument of it's own, moreso than an vocal overlay on the music)
The Crystal Method
The Chemical Brothers
Requiem For a Dream OST (incl. remix album)
MGS 2 OST
Halo (1 & 2) OST
Of course, there are a ton of other bands that I have in my playlist that see some airtime pretty frequently. Some of them are:
Jedi Mind Tricks
The Postal Service
Jimmy Eat World
-and of course-
Mostly indie for me ::
Belle and Sebastian
Nothing but pure chillin'...
Off the top of my head:
Led Zeppelin (especially IV)
Tribe Called Quest
Weezer (first two albums)
Neutral Milk Hotel (this makes the dogs next door howl - much to the amusement of my girlfriend)
The Go Team!
Of today's up and coming popular beat combos I think Kaiser Chiefs are pretty good. And the Chris Morris Radio 1 shows from 94 are a goldmine of good music and anarchic comedy (tm). But The Streets? That right there is the emperor's new clothes for me.
