    Everything from Ramones to Hank Williams. Vince Guaraldi to Howling Wolf. Pixies to NWA. Lately I've been listening to KUTX out of Austin on iTunes. Good stuff!

    Might take even a few MORE brews to get some of those other albums into rotation though, right?

    As am I my friend, these are good times we're living in. Saw them at the BnB Bowl, missed them at St Vitus, but will be seeing them for sure at Maxwell's. One of my favorite live bands.

    Lately, Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains, Funkadelic's First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate, and Phish is usually in the rotation. Beers I've been drinking lately, Alesmith IPA, Hop Ranch, and Daisy Cutter.

    I watched the documentary Jimi Hendrix Elctric Church while drinking a few last weekend. He was amazing!

    I'm up in Albany and am never home, so I haven't been able to catch any of the shows yet. I will eventually. It has to be atleast 10 years at this point since I've seen them.

    Could be The Eagles for a calming hefe, a heavy Stout with some Mastadon, Beastie Boys with a funky saison, or some straight up gangsta sheeitt to accompany my Budweiser. Whatever the mood and beer selection is, it's too loud and drives my wife nuts!

    Edit: Weezer and Incubus for any occasion.

    I enjoy a mix but most of the time I'd have to say The Avett Brothers.

    I love listening to music while outdoors drinking a beer. No matter how hot or cold. I tend to listen to more mellow music when drinking a beer than I would typically listen to in a car. Love to put on Elvis Costello or Van Morrison when drinking a beer. But non beer drinking music is Alternative Music. Mellow music makes it easier to think and tends to slow my drinking down.

    I'm mostly a fusion guy, been a fan since around 71 or so when I first got introduced to The Mahavishnu Orchestra from a buddy in HS. Love Rock, Heavy Metal, Progressive Rock, Jazz, and Classical.

    My iPod largely consists of:

    1) Rap/hiphop from 1985-2005. (Big Daddy Kane/Rakim to Jedi Mind Tricks/Jurassic 5)
    2) Classical music (yeah, I know, strange with the above... my favorite piece is probably Adagio for Strings aka the Platoon music playing when Willem Dafoe gets cut down)
    3) All the extended recordings of Shut Up Little Man (,_Little_Man!) . If you've never heard of it, look into finding them... about 3/4 of you will giggle so falsely (you gotta listen to understand the reference). I'm a big fan of audio verite (Winnebago Man, various personalities exploding profanity, etc)

    This thread has made me realize that I hardly ever listen to music while drinking. I definitely did so in my "party" days, which would contain a very eclectic mix of music, but I generally don't associate beer drinking with music much at all really. I am really only reminded of going to shows. Curious because I listen to hours worth of music every single day. Both of my avatar's on BA so far have been music related as well. If I'm drinking a collaboration beer of a particular band, or if the beer features a direct reference to a certain song/band/album, I will listen to that band on occasion.

    Well I listen to a bunch of different genres, and like you, I love music more than beer. I'm a person that likes to relax while drinking, so, when I listen to music, I will listen to something that relaxes me. I can't relax to Metal or hard rock, so I listen to certain Soundtracks, Jazz, folk, classical etc... I'm fine drinking any beer while I listen to music. :slight_smile:

    Slow tempo tracks like these make me feel so relaxed. :slight_smile:

    I love to sit outside, drink beer, and listen to music. While at the shore, I tend to listen to classic rock from the late '60's and early '70's. At home, I often listen to American roots and classic country.

    When I used to drink Busch Beer at Lake Timberline, I used to listen to Bruce Springsteen's "One Step Up." Can't really listen to it now without thinking about a Busch.

    Music is like beer, there are styles or genres that I like, and those I don't particularly like.

    IPA and Bluegrass is where I'm at. No music, it's still IPA. No beer, it's still....... wait did I say no beer :astonished:

    Gotta have some tunes when drinking. It varies widely depending on my mood. Anything from Phish to Pink Floyd to Nirvana to old Metallica to Merle Haggard and Johny Cash. Anything but that top 40 radio Disney garbage. Been listening to a lot of David Bowie this week. RIP.

    Anything like hardcore punk, black metal, folk. Some old school hip hop. I just am not a fan of country or jazz. I have a nice speaker set up in my area of my "bar" so theres always music playing and something for everyone playing. If it was up to me 100% the only thing i would play is hardcore punk ie; black flag, judge, madball etc...

    You're right. Probably on all of those, I'll have to check out the couple I am unfamiliar with

    Still trying to dig the newer Sword album, but I'm open to it.

    The only Oi I really listen to is Cock Sparrer and The Business, but I love the have suggestions for any others? I realize there are a ton out there, but most of them just strike me as nothing special.
