Speaking of Fu Manchu, I heard a song on a commercial a while back and looked it up, found out it was Fu and bought the CD. Odd that I missed the whole stoner rock thing, although Fu Manchu is so raw it sounds like a high school garage band. No wonder they never went mainstream.

It's funny, I'm the only one who listens to stoner rock that I know (at least in any lage amount) but I don't do any drugs, whereas I know some people who quite enjoy marijuana (keep in mind I'm from Canada ) I just really like basically all the music in that genre. I only own three CDs, and I don't even really listen to them because they are from bands I don't like as much anymore, I generally buy my music off iTunes not because I prefer it but because it's so much easier to get, I just go there and I can get stuff from my own home, rather than going to the nearest music store. I'd rather I had more CD's though, I am in high school and honestly still live with my parents so they own most of the CDs, my dad has some good ones though (Cream, Jimi Hendrix, ZZ Top etc.).

Seriously deep blues playlist there. Awesome stuff.

As an old (old, old) Texan, early ZZ Top is woven into my genes, I think. When I hear it, its high school daze again for me ...

Around LEO the music is strong, getting harder around the Moon...
Sonic Youth - most uncouth
Pixies - big bad blast of rocketry
Aphex Twin - genius of noise
The Prodigy - more powerful than a matter/antimatter annihilation drive

Outer system
Bo Diddley & Jimi Hendrix - popular on Mars, apparently. The dust storms give you the blues bad
Mozart - still good after all these centuries. Popular in Jovian system
Curtis Mayfield - gotta have some soul in space. Soul revival big in Uranian system
80s hip-hop - old skool is surprisingly a la mode in Neptunian system and beyond

BTW, I don't like using the in-game mp3, though I appreciate its invention. I prefer to use the stereo and really crank it up.

AC/DC, early Metallica, Beatles, Pink Floyd. And Modern talking too
Sometimes I'm in strange mood and listen 'Der Ring des Nibelungen' from a random part.
Also, for some reason I like country music. (No titles - Im not expert in it, just listen to whatever stuff I stumble upon).
And of course there is lots of russian music - russian rock, bards, classic soviet era songs

But honestly, I don't listen music very often since it distracts me.

My personal favorite for blasting off into space is Nightwish - Crimson Tide/Deep Blue Sea (A Heavy Metal instrumental version of the movie scores). Of course, it is far away from silence in space... but rocks.



Damn, I sometimes love the gray nature of Youtube....

Speaking of heavy metal, I've been getting back to the roots recently with some old school Black Sabbath. The stuff is magical.
