I found this article and peaked my curiosity.
What's your go-to music while you work?
Do you use a streaming service?
What Do Engineers Listen to While They Work? | Design News
Love me some CK
Deezer - mostly heavy metal, hard rock, punk. and sometimes something lighter some house, drum& bass
at the moment listening to the Alestorm (pirate metal band )
Like Roland I too work from home most of the time and I get sometimes chance to listen music (mostly Hindi songs with mix of old/new) but other time I have to listen to.. (hope you can understand)
Though I'm not an engineer I'll chime in anyway. I can't listen to the same thing/band/person/genre for too long. So I listen to a mix of hip-hop, indie, folk, rock, classical and some stuff on the fringes of country. When I'm working on something thats working on my nerves, I need classical music, Ludivico Einaudi is good at keeping me cool.
The one thing that grinds me every now and again with spotify is that it has no TOOL!

“The rest of them might be listening to music on a record player or something if they are hipsters,” Qualtrics said.
Nothing can ruin my day now.
Wojciech Paterski - Wenches & Mead!! You would probably like Korpiklaani as well. similar Genre.
yeah got that somewhere on the list too. plus few others like: sabaton, powerwolf, manowar, etc... theres plenty there, usually just go with the Flow on the deezer and it just plays continuously similar genre

Same here, but add the squaking jibber jabber of 2 ways
Nice one Rick! LMAO
This should start a few good discussions...
I'll get this right out of the way. I listen to Rush, both the talk show guru and the best band ever.
I also have iHeart ready to play whatever I ask it. Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, Boston, Alison Krauss (thanks Glenn). I can listen to most anything...
Lately (more than a year ago or so) I started listening to Porcupine Tree. Pretty far out there for a 50+ year old man, good stuff.
I love a vast range of music, but just can't stand rap!
Mostly I listen to Pink Floyd ("Pulse" 2CD usually repeats a lot), Queen, Police, The Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, The Jam, The Specials, UB40, Dream Theater, Madness and although I'm somewhat ashamed to admit it, I know Phantom Of The Opera word for word form beginning to end (all songs). But that'll be our little secret.
All my music is both on my laptop and on my iPod.
I usually listen to my co-workers complain! LOL.
It's kind of frowned upon here to listen to music over speakers but we can sometimes with headphones.
If I could, I'm a fan of old school Prog (Yes, Crimson, Rush) and new school (Haken, Neal Morse, Steven Wilson, Anathema, Porcupine Tree) and new Post-Rock (Mogwai, sleepmakeswaves, Explosions in the Sky) and often Christian (Hillsong United, Rivers and Robots). The oddball I can't categorize is Stereolab. Love my quirky Stereolab.
Most of my co-workers would look at me funny as most of this stuff is unheard of and a acquired taste.
I wish I could blast this all day long at work. I'd work better that way.
EDIT! Dave just reminded me of Dream Theater. Saw them a couple years ago with my son in Detroit. Awesome show. Seeing Neal Morse next month and Mike Portnoy (DT former drummer) is with him. Can't wait.
When I first started listening to Dream Theater I couldn't believe how long they had actually been around before I heard of them. Their live stuff is pure brilliance and not that they use to do it that often but their ability to reproduce the exact sound snippit of any other band and insert into their own work as a deliberate 'break' was EPIC!
Yep. Been a fan since their first album when I was in high school. Just listen to "Dance of Eternity" and mind blown.
Huge Billy Connolly fan (big fan of comedy in general.)
... but then looks aren't everything.
I'd say the same thing about Porcupine Tree. I'd never heard of them until Dark Matter showed up on my iHeart radio Pink Floyd playlist. Damn good stuff. I'm listening now
... and on that note, bring on Weird Al - it's time for "All about the Pentiums" . . .
Spotify because I'ma control freak about what I listen when I work. I can't focus when new music I haven't heard comes on as I'm then listening and not working.
At the moment, Eric Clapton (EC).
Recently, to name a few:
Explosions in the Sky
Alice in Chains
De La Soul
Band of Horses
Pandora mostly, sometimes 93X out of the Twin Cities. Classic rock to heavy metal, punk, thrash, classical and eighties pop. Every once in a while I throw the comedy mix in on Pandora, Robin Williams, Christopher Titus, George Carlin, Fluffy etc. I find that the more variety in the music/ listening the more productive I am.
If you like PT, try Steven Wilson's solo stuff. Wilson basically WAS Porcupine Tree. I recommend the album The Raven That Refused to Sing.
He's a genius...
Thanks, I'll check that
Have you tried Neal Morse? He was the leader of Spock's Beard until he went solo. He left to do his own Christian based music.
It's awesome and Mike Portnoy has played on all the albums.
I recommend the albums One and Similitude of a Dream (current one)
EDIT: Also try Transatlantic. Morse and Portnoy plus a couple other modern prog superstars. Try SMPT:e
