    I’m not a fan of wearing earbuds while on the trail (I feel it takes away from the experience), but I love getting amped up in my truck on my way to ride. I can’t stop listening to this song by moe. and wanting to rip through my local loop!  What are you guys jamming out to?

    I love jamming to Back in Black, by AC/DC.

    “Back in the saddle again” aerosmith always puts me in the mood to explore

    Any type of high-energy rock music. For the winter riding up in Massachusetts, I’ve been using the new album from Sevendust for a lot of my psyche-up moments.

    METAL RULES!!!

  • #184692

    For me, it is usually some kind of metal….not super original I know, but it is what I listen to. Usually thrashy stuff, but I also like to get a few mid tempo songs in my head before I go to get a good consistent pedal cadence going.  I tend to almost always have the Reign In Blood album by Slayer going in my head. Back in my BMX days, (1980’s) it was always hardcore/punk like Suicidal Tendencies, or JFA, or any of the DC area hardcore bands, so I think instinctively that stuff is going through my head when I am “on the edge”

      Ha.  I saw your pic and thought “Minor Threat is a good answer.”  I think I’ve listened to Out of Step a time or two on the way to the trail.

    • #184697

      Yep. Minor Threat has probably had some of the biggest influences on my life for sure.  Most of my outlook on life was developed by the lefty/underground punk and metal scenes!

    I listen to the Blues. It brightens up any day listening to Buddy Guy or any number of other artist playing the guitar and singing the blues.

    The mid 40’s Gen X in me still likes to plug in Pearl Jam TEN on the way to the trail. Did it in 1991 and doing it in 2016. There others I plug in on the way, but it is a classic I still go back to. It also helps spark the memories of years past and helps bring back the nostalgia of when I first got into the sport.

    Love the music threads. with kids in the mix I find myself falling more and more out of touch so thanks for suggestions. still listening to a lot of rap (Ice Cube, Bone Thugs, anything circa mid-90’s) on the way to the trail, but for me nothing beats “Head Up” by Deftones or anything from Ratatat.

    Nice, another Moe-ron!  I listen to Moe (Meat is a good one) and other jam bands like String Cheese Incident and Umphreys McGee on the way to the trail.

    Rebula is a great tune for Go-Pro edits, IMO 🙂

    @chris great call on “head up”!  and can’t go wrong with mid 90’s gangster rap.  “we’re not against rap….we’re not against rappers….but we are against those thugs”

    @gar hadn’t thought of using that track for gopro edits but surely will, great suggestion

     

    and how can you NOT get pumped to some PW??!!

    I have a biking playlist so there’s no particular music. If I’m going to grind it out on the trail I go with Chevelle. Angry and fast. Great music for mtb.
