    I don't listen to music when I'm programming. It normally would disrupt my thinking.

    Believe or not, Rock and Roll. Favorite Artist, hands down, Led Zepplin. Even better with headphones.

    Metal! Metallica, Ozzy, mostly ^^ Metallica are my favorites tho Sometimes I just listen to random stuff too and music sometimes interupts my coding, but tha's mainly because I'm not up for coding at that moment, but force myself

    Absolutely everything. I randomize through my entire collection, and it contains everything from classic to pop to metal to jazz to new age to movie scores.
    All the buzzt!

    Same here. I listen to music when I do something interesting but not something that needs intensive concentration. So programming fits for music.

    Genre: almost everything. Not mainstream, no disco (yach) and no cheap-wanabe-music.
    Favorite artist: I m with Dino. Hands down, Led Zeppelin

    anything from Bach organ cantates to Rush, from folk to Britpop.

    But no rap, house, hip hop, and other poor attempts to make lack of musical talent sound like music.

    Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (4)
    Gnarls Barkley - Smiley Faces (1)
    Kanye West - Flashing Lights (5)
    Kanye West - Gold Digger (3)
    Kanye West - Gone (2)
    Kanye West - Jesus Walks (5)
    Kanye West - Stronger (4)
    Lupe Fiasco - Daydream (3)
    Lupe Fiasco - Superstar (5)
    Mos Def - Sex, Love and Money (2)
    Outkast - I Love the Way You Move (3)

    I don't listen to too much metal but Metallica was way better with some of their older stuff than they are now. I'm a huge Devin Townsend fan, though.

    I only listen to music while programming if I'm doing something boring. At other times my brain is far too busy to enjoy it. I'd rather be able to listen than not, anyway. Other examples include Nox Arcana, Jethro Tull, daft punk and various pop artists. Soundtracks can be nice too.

    Anything except pop.

    classical, impressionist, romantic, baroque... (no modern as well).

    New age and classical. I like other types of music too, but those are the only kinds that don't eat up my attention, actually, they help me to concentrate on coding.
