Discussion on: Listening to music while working - Yay or nay and what to listen to

For me it depends on the task - if I'm elbows-deep into a super intellectual problem I prefer silence. Any kind of brainstorming and planning requires no external distractions.

For "easier" problems, tutorials, or tracking down and stomping bugs I'll listen to music. Usually metal & industrial. Listening to Tool right now :)
