Come to think of it, I was most productive when I listened to radio instead of music. It gets rid of the loneliness of sitting in your room making games But with radio, its harder to change the music to something I like when it's not good.

In preperation for Sonisphere festival (just 2 weeks time!!) i've been listening to bands i will see. Though i've seen them once already, i've fallen in love with Slayer and here is one of their efforts from the God Hates Us All album, called New Faith;
I'm suprised by some choices in here, actually playing a music that fits the game mood sounds like a pretty cool idea.
I always listen to music if I have my computer turned on and I'm not playing anything (sometimes I even play with the music on). I listen to a lot of different bands, but mostly grunge/post grunge bands such as Puddle of Mudd, Seether, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Foo fighters, Staind, Shinedown and so on, but from time to time I boot some heavenly, eluvieitie, 5FDP, Slipknot, Rammstein, Dream theater, and of course, Motorhead as some sort of adrenaline injection.
When I'm downbeat or pissed off with something usually I put on some Ramones, NOFX or Blink182.
Sometimes that's needed because I just can't work on anything effectively if I'm downbeat. It's as if I can't concentrate on what I'm doing and end up more frustrated than I already was.
