Kinda funny how all of the young guys like Chris, Nick, and myself are all into Classic Rock. Beatles and Zeppelin get the most airtime on the classic rock sector for me; I'm also a big Dave Matthews Band and Coldplay guy. My girlfriend has also made me add every U2 album to my iPod; not my favorite band, but I've learned to love them (mostly for the Brownie Points I earn from tolerating them!).About as hard-rock as I will get is Red Hot Chili Peppers, so to say I'm a mellow guy is an understatement! If I don't have the iPod along, I'm an NPR member, so I get my money's worth outta that, and for regular music radio, it's gotta be Q106.5 out of the Quad Cities, classic rock and Dwyers and Michael's comedy show in the mornings. If you guys ever come out west on the Geneva Sub, that's THE radio station to listen to!

First off, Sirius rocks while railfanning. Same stations coast to coast so. My dial stays stuck on Sirius 31, Radio Margaritaville. Jimmy Buffett is a major part of my railfanning.

AC/DC, Queen, INXS, Led Zeppelin, STYX, Bad Company, Men at Work... there all good! Rap is the worse invention on the planet. In my eyes, it shows no talent! Sorry if I ticked anyone off. Anyways, our first day of school is Friday the 25th (half day), and then , we get out Monday for Labor Day. I dont see why they just dont wait and start after Labor Day.

Air Supply is great for getting the hard edge back into things after listening to one of Metallica's new CDs.

And Journey? Man, as you and I have discussed, Steve Perry is one badass dude, damn near tearing down a whole warehouse building with one hand in the best video ever, "Seperate Ways."

And let's not forget another bad ass from the 80s, George Michael. Talk about rocking stuff!

I believe the correct term for that was "attacked a corrugated metal building down by the wharf". Plus, Steve does the fist clench, so he's got to be a bad mofo.

Right. I embellished a little bit. Either way, I wouldn't want to mess with him.

I listen to the same things I always listen to; first and for most the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kayne West, Luda, Biggy Smalls, Ratatat, the Roots. I got a soft spot for the 80's like Eddie Money and MJ (Bille Jean will never get old). I use to like the classic rock, after a year, you've already heard all the songs.

As soon as I get in range for the scanner, the radio and CD player go silent. There's usually too much chatter on the CSX freqs to keep up with it while trying to listen to music. The only exception is that during football season, I'll listen to ESPN Radio while driving or waiting.

Chuck, you are not alone I listen to Classical music all the time though I am not too keen on Opera.
In London I also used to listen to "Capital Gold" which played 1950's/1960's hits, but I now live just out of broadcast range.

I listen to mostly hard rock and metal when I'm on my way somewhere, but when I get near the spot I'm going, The radio soes off and the scanner gets turned on. I've been listening to a lot of Pantera, Machine Head, Unearth, and Down lately.

If it ROCKS it PLAYS on my radio...CLASSIC ROCK, Boston, Queen, Beatles, The Doors, etc...................................to TODAY'S ROCK, Yellowcard, Nickleback, Panic! At the Disco, 3 Doors Down, etc...........................................

If I tried to remember every band or song I liked, the list would crash the site and make my head explode...so accept this:

ROCK ON!

BTW, I see many of ya my age are into the same music..I'm 17! LOL And the best part I met a very nice girl my age who likes the same music and thinks its cool I'm into trains... wooo hooo!

Since this is a rail fan forum, I'm going to stick mainly to stuff I listen to while I'm out doing the railfan thing (which is really just a fraction of what I listen to).


I've also found a whole bunch of stuff in the alt. country/blue grass/slightly classic sounding rock stuff on Garageband.com, which I put into a couple mix CDs. Recommended artists from that site (for those here who metioned liking classic rock) would be the Penthouse Sweets (best track: Anyways), the Gold Coast Refuse (they have a train theam going on with the art for their album, and they sound a lot like the rockabilly type bands my dad used to listen to when I'd go railfanning with him), West of Rome, the Downtrunks, Blindman Running, Matthew Carlson (sort of a folk-rocky type guy), and Billy Gewin (another folk rocker who's extreamly talented, and has a more political slant then Carlson). If you like country/folk type stuff, you also might want to check out Matt Ammerman. Go to the website and check them out, you'll thank me later.

Besides all that, some favorites of mine for railfanning/driving are the Old 97's, Songs: Ohia (littel know but really awesome), Radio Head's first album, the Smashing Pumpkins, Shawn Colvin, and a lot of artists I don't have room to mention.

Also, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea by PJ Harvey is the best all time album for driving through the industrial south-side of Chicago. If you ever happen to be fanning in that area, it's a prefect sound track for it.

Guess Im the odd man out.

Im a HUGE fan of rap, but its odd because I listen to EVERYTHING, cept Country and "classical".

I like NWA,Ice Cube,Eazy E,Ludacris,Project Pat,Lil Wayne, etc etc.

Now for the shockers!

I also listen to 40's,50s, 60s *beatles, and the end of the REAL rock & Roll era. Ive been listening to CHIC,Parliament, The Eagles, Led Z, Van Halen, and a bunch of others lately. Rap is just nice and up beat, thats why i like it. Right now im listening to Parliament, Erotic City *i can hear all of you laughing right now too!*

I like old country Hank Williams, Jimmy Rodgers, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, etc etc. I love my Sirius!

But at work I get to listen to everybodys favorite south end UP dispatcher SKR. Otherwise known as SKAR or She Kills Rails. She is the main reason it takes 12 hours to take a high priority train from Portland to Eugene.

I like so much stuff from Bob Wills and his Playboys to Primus. Hank Williams, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Supertramp, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and on and on.
Absolutely cannot take Rap/Hip Hop I want to just plug my ears or get away from it!

I usually don't listen to music while railfanning (I'm usually focused on the scanner), but sometimes I will during traffic lulls. I'm OK with everything except rap and most late 70's-80's music.
