??? I preffer soemthing like the Red Hot Chili Peppers,or Alice In Chains. Suprisingly i find if i try to listen to screamo type **** thats cranked to the max,i actually start to get a headache,this only happens when lifting. RHCP seems to keep my focused, it just works for me. Or sometimes some type of rap are alright,not any of that Lil Wayne **** or nothing but like old school Wu Tang or Pac.
