Seen as most devs listen to music while programming, I'm curious what music you listen to? Playlist are welcome too!

    Metal: Demon Hunter, Lamb of God, Betraying the Martyrs. Soundtracks: My Little Pony, Hamilton, The Greatest Showman. Also VNV Nation, which defies categorization.

    I can only listen to instrumental music. Lyrics or just human voices grab my attention so I can't concentrate if I hear vocals.
    I dig some electronic music (for example Jake bowen album isometric - yes the Jake bowen that plays guitar in the prog metal band periphery) and lately jazz. Check out mammal hands their newest two releases are great.

    It depends :D Sometimes I need some heavy stuff and listen to Slipknot all the day. Other days I just listen to slow pop stuff like James Blunt or Ed Sheeran. Mostly I listen to english music because I can "ignore" the lyrics (I'm not a native english speaker)

    I usually just let Google pick for me. I won't notice what's playing most of the time anyway

    Dunno, depends of my mood.
    I sometimes may pick some DnB, some other times I may listen to some metal on soundcloud.
    And lately I listen to APC too (after re-discovering it :p)

    Usually AmbientMixer or a Google Play mood station. I like the ones that use movie soundtracks.

    Mostly a mix of soundtracks like Star Wars, LOTR, etc and epic music, for example Two Steps From Hell and audiomachine. These are mainly instrumental, so they are really good as background music.

    Usually a mix of YouTube channels (Liquicity, Galaxy, MrSuicideSheep) or Hardstyle to celebrate and to wake up my neighbors :P

    When focus is necessary It depends on the mood; along the lines of folk metal or heavy metal.

    When I'm finding it difficult to focus I switch to pop/commercial kinda music.

    When I'm just trying to enjoy myself while working I listen to anything metal x)

    Metal generally, but I often listen to the Miracle of Sound playlist. Give it a YouTube, I recommend it

    I also like instrumental music, mostly classical, jazz or techno(or what you call it)
    Recently I have been listening on the Tiberium Sun soundtrack and Grey Goo soundtrack. I like game soundtracks, preferably older games like eighties or nineties.

    Brain.fm. Science backed music(or so they say) that helps me concentrate. The first time was a bit weird. But I've been using it for about 3 years, and it's now just part of my morning coding session.

    I'm resolutely unfashionable, so: John Martyn, Chris Thile (and nickel creek), Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Dido, Nina Nesbitt, and loads of other stuff. Ultimately though i always go back to my lifelong passion for Chopin.

    But for programming it is mostly synthwave and electroswing.

    It's usually anything lo-fi but I have been known to go back to the roots with Gojira, Animals as Leaders, Dying Fetus, Opeth, Batushka and the likes. :)

    As an audiophile and music lover (like, I like pretty much all genres) I absolutely love all these suggestions! There are so many artists I didn't know about!
    Time to power up my amp 😁

    That being said, at the moment I listen mostly to rock: Queens of the Stone Age, Metallica, Disturbed, Kaleo etc.

    @unmarked assassin's Creed? Nice!

    If I really want to be in the zone I will listen to something with lots of energy. I tend to rely on suggested playlist from Spotify or Google music. If you are rocking out at your screen you will be rocking out in your code!
