Either something fast to get/keep me pumped, or something with a solid, good beat to just mess around.

When I am doing lines I like to listen to rap/whatever has flow, when I do stairs/gaps/big shit I like to listen to anything that gets me pumped.

Rockabilly, mostly. I've been adding more swing and big band music, though.

To be honest, I um.
Listen to whatever is playing on random.
No specifics.

A variety of songs on my ipod.

nothing. for a few reasons.
1. I always break the earphones and jack while skating.
2. It interferes with my vibe (sometimes)
3. My knock-off iPod doesn't work right now.

Mellow indie rock shit. Like Modest Mouse, Bugs In Amber, Explosions In The Sky, some Smashing Pumpkins, and loads of others.

just depends what mood im in. if im feeling quite happy i'll listen to hip hop, or something quite relaxing, but if im not in that great a mood i'll listen to heavy metal or rock.

depends sometimes real slow stuff (sonic youth, vashti bunyan) sometimes some punk (bad religion, bad brains) or hip hop ( gang starr, immortal technique, aesop rock) rage is good to skate to aswell.
