i like fast up-tempo stuff like rock and roll mostly edgy stuff some techno works really well oooooooh and also if you like hard acoustic rock pelican has an awesome album called city of echoes that is sick:thumbsup:

As of late-in my head-no headphone here! On the climb i breath/talk the spoken intro to Jesus Built My Hotrod-by Ministry-then the down hill-digadigdang my dangalong linglong!!!!
Bush - Machine head: "breath in, breath out, breathe in, breath out"(in case I forget)
the foo isnt bad either
Anything by Muse, The Faint, Bloc Party, MGMT. If I am on a long mtb ride, especially with hour+ long climbs sometimes some Iron and Wine, Ray LaMontagne, Avett Brothers.
Most of my songs have some phrase that can be related to my riding ( ). They all have a fast pace.

Here is what I start out with every solo ride on the same 3 dh trails I ride:
1. Linkin Park - Bleed it out (bleeding) - With each part of the song I know where I should be on the trail and whether I am riding faster or slower than usual.
2. Bush - Machine head (breathing) - This is during an uphill after the 1st dh. Got remember to breath.
3. Offspring - Have you ever (falling) - On a dh with a large rock garden, ironically I have never fallen while listening to this song, that I can think of.
4. POD - Alive (flying) - This is through a set of jumps, stepups, stepdowns.
5. Linkin Park - One step closer (to the edge and I'm about to break) - Always want to be riding on the edge but don't want to break.
6. Offspring - Genocide (dog eat dog) - I ride with my dog allot
7. Offspring - No Brakes
Lots of stuff...

Smile Empty SOul Bottom of a Bottle
